Hi DiS, just want you to know I'm in hell right now.

Every year my GF and her old uni pals get togther for a weekend. I sometimes go and it’s usually pretty good fun despite not knowing any of the shared memories.

We’re currently in rural Cumbria and so far:

  • The wifi has been turned off, because we should “untether ourselves from the world for a bit”.

  • I’ve been made a cup of tea that was half normal tea, half earl gray. I still dont understand why.

  • There are ukeleles being played near-constantly by both children and adults.

  • I’ve come down with a cold, feeling bunged up with a very sore throat.

  • Tonight’s plans centre on a game of Monopoly.

Still, only here till Monday. I’m sure the time will fly by.

Sounds great! (Apart from the cold, gws) I’d love a game of monopoly.

Burn the ukeleles and the warmth from the fire should also help get rid of your cold

Oh there’s now a recorder. Is there any sound sweeter or more relaxing than a child with a recorder?

Yes.

At least they’re playing a proper board game and not some wizards and orks card shite though, eh?

Missed out the bit that referenced kids being there. Yeah that sounds shit.

5 kids.

Not sure that’s acceptable in polite company.

Can someone confirm?

Tell everyone that to truly unplug they must leave their phones in their cars.

Turn the WiFi back on.

Then go for a 3 hour shit and play on your phone with wonderful wifi

Pay one of the other kids to hit that kid? Maybe go through an intermediary kid to make it harder to trace back to you.

Any way you can make that cold look like an insanely dangerous and contagious illness? That way you can sort yourself a nice quarantine room with lots of medicinal booze.

Really though the only ethical thing to do is lock all the doors and set fire to the building. Prevent the evil from spreading.
