Food Consumed Yesterday
Dairylea Dunkers (Toy with them, then DESTROY them!), Cheese Salad Roll,
Half a cheese & tomato pizza, 2 mugs of coffee, 1 mug of tea,
2 cups of machine Cocoa, 4 cups of water.


Got into trouble at work last night because I swapped the computer chair at my desk for my bosses instead...the one I had was too wide and the back wouldn't adjust.

She got in a huff and told me off...so when she went to the manager's meeting, our deputy hid her chair and got a large armchair from the 'break out' area and put that at her desk instead. Suffice to say, she was not best pleased;)


Highlight of last night's work conversation with Jui-ehh!! was a discussion about brain surgery...if they took off the top of your head like a teapot lid, how would they stick it back??

Jui-ehh!! didn't know how they'd do it, I suggested staples and superglue, someone else was convinced they'd leave it open, or put in a metal plate across the top of your head... Vinegar and brown paper isn't on the list anymore lol!!!

And I missed watching 'Basquiat'...had no idea it was on or I'd have set the video...saw the first 40 mins on lunch-break and then caught the end an hour later. Bugger!!!

Got home and watched an hour of GCSE French lessons on TV... I'm rather pleased at how much I remember from school, since I only did 3 years of it, then 5 years of Spanish instead... My speaking french is rotten, but my comprehension of the language in written form is still pretty good.

At least if I ever go to Paris (I WISH!!!) I can still get by with asking for food and other consumables...and telling people my name and address if I'm lost/require a taxi etc etc!!!

"Je voudrais un chocolat croissant et une tasse de café si vous plait!!"


(but I do have a tendency to put in spanish words where I shouldn't lol!!)

"Je voudrais un chocolat croissant y un cafe con leche por favor!!"



In Other News...

As always, I burn myself out doing theatre/shows etc...then have a brief period of being 'low' when I'm not doing anything but data entry...then that schedule changes (7pm-3am), my sleep and eating patterns get messed up and I get run down.

Then I get a stinky cold.

Yep, my nose is all blocked, my cough has gone to my chest, I can't breathe properly, I have a stupid stuffy headache and I feel rotten.


And I wanted to go in town today to meet up with Jui-ehh!!, have coffee and chocolate croissants, go to the art gallery and then to Tribal Voice to make a hole in my face (get my lip pierced), but felt too icky to get out of bed.

She'll be cranky with me tonight as I seem to always be ill whenever we arrange to meet up :((

It's not my fault though, and she didn't ring me to wake me as arranged...I expect she overslept too!!

I *will* be better by Saturday... I want to go to 'Black Catz' gawth nite... I've missed the last two months due to theatre business and apparently it's been rather good those two times:/





Predictable, Moi??

You are Sally Bowles from Cabaret! You're the sexy
Brit who headlines at the Kit Kat Club. You
may not be the most talented singer, and your
morals may not be quite intact, but you are
vivacious, eccentric and irresistible.

What musical theatre tart are you?

Those Dairy Lea things are stupidly expensive, aren't they? I had one of those Dunkers from the local CoOp, 46p! Now I'm not the sort who'll go "you could buy the indgredients for a decnet sandwhich" at this point, because a 'decent sandwich' has to contain salads - urgh. It's a shame they don't have a Kwik Save near you.

Go on, wear some PVC to Black Catz, you know you want to.

I didn't even like it:/

I got it from the corner shop on the way into work...a sting at 59p!!

Naw, I'll be wearing corsetry and my favourite new 1950's skirt:))

It's still too cold to wear my pvc mini-skirt lol!!

59p???? I knew those little shops are steep, but that's taking the proverbial, frankly. Reminds me of the time I bought a can of Dr Pepper in some small papershop and was horrified to discover it costing 41p - it was 30p in the market. This was about 10 years ago though.

Yes, it's reet nippy out.

I'll have that one back if you've still got it - I'm sure it'll play ok in my video.
Videos are like that, record on one and it looks like crap on another one.
Plus I want to see 'Mulholland Drive'!

Re: brain surgery...

They would cut around your head at a slanting angle so that the piece of skull removed can sit nicely ontop without falling in... all but the last edge which would be snapped. I can't quite remember why... but yes, anyway...

I remember asking my surgeon-father a few years ago, to which I recieved a very gruesome description!
