An update on yesterday's post
I'm amazed at the power of communication. Really, I am. Yesterday I found out that I have a huge library fine and I was understandably pissed off about it. It was all my fault of course. See how responsible I am accepting the blame for my mistake? I could blame it on the library but I didn't, see?
Anyhow, after a brief conversation with a librarian I got him to reduce my fine from whatever massive amount it was yesterday to $24 which I might not have to pay afterall. Wow, I really should talk about my problem with whoever can help me more.
Let's see, I need to tell the police about the idiot who couldn't keep her mouth shut in Biochem lecture who I killed with a shovel last month. Maybe they'll be able to help dispose of the body. Just joking, I'm a bit strange after I finished reading "American Psycho". No wonder they restrict who can buy this book. Which makes it the more disturbing when my old high school let anyone borrow it.
On with today's wacky stuff, I've got this email regarding my one and only video on Youtube. If you can still remember, it was taken off Youtube last month due to some
busybody concerned copyright snitch watchdog. Today I received this email from Youtube:
This email is to inform you that your video(s) belonging to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, have been reinstated. Australian Broadcasting Corporation has informed us that the individual submitting the copyright infringement notification was not authorized to act on their behalf.

I don't know what else to say about this matter, maybe I should just remove the video altogether. What's the point really when you can download Chaser's episodes legally, albeit in crappy formats, from Chaser's Vodcast page.
