Someone rang yesterday to make the change. I hung up on them because I thought they were trying to sell me something. They called back and spoke to my mother later, so I'm still not sure why she's as angry as she is. The obvious answer is that she thinks she's dying but I'm having trouble taking it like that. To set up a new profile I have to set up a new email address. I'm registered with the same site that Craig uses but I haven't used it for a year, which is about as long ago as the site was originally in vogue.

Traffic lights are red. There's an old man walking across the road really slowly with a carrier bag filled with canned food, and it makes me feel stupid, like I want to cry.
