My Day Has Been Kind Of A Wash, Really:

I've been sitting in my cube, dialing random numbers for fifteen minutes, trying through sheer force of my will to make the numbers written on the page form into something that will actually reach a real person in London, not that shitty British recording that informs me "The number cannot be completed as dialed.

But I do have a soy chai from Starbucks in my hand.

I'm trying to watch World Cup Soccer live on my computer at work...it's proving to be quite difficult!

A soy chai fixes, or at least compensates for a great many things.

And ice cream covers everything that soy chai doesn't... so you should be fine.

Oh how I love the soy chai. If you want a really rich one, request a Soy Chai Latte with no water.

Love,
your starbucks barista :)

Well that's a sticky wicket!

Sorry, that's the best I could come up with. I'm not sure if it's even Brit slang.

But seriously guv'ner, did you actually reach a real, live Brit?

Bloody hell. But it was entertaining to listen to.

Dial 00 first, then 44, then the number. And if it starts with a zero, drop that.

Did that actually help?
