Anywho, I digress …

It’ll be alright on the night

Funnier than you think

Every year or so, I start to laugh and …. well, it gets out of hand.  Some would call it hysteria.  I like to think of it as uncontrollable mirth.  That is not to say that I only laugh every year or so!  I laugh quite a bit 😀

I often scare people in the card shop when I come across a particularly funny card and start to titter.  Last year, I found a really good birthday card with a stork theme that cracked me up.  You know who you are 😉

That’ll be the day

I had a subscription. Oh yes!

There is a new ad for the US Postal Service that makes me shiver.  It prominently features a clown – a creepy clown.  I don’t like clowns, creepy or otherwise.

A couple of years ago, I took my mum and my sister to Las Vegas for a bit of shopping, a show and a fabulous dinner at the Bellagio.  All was going well until the fabulous dinner at the Bellagio.  I picked the restaurant because there was a view of the fountains from the window and the food was French.  What I failed to notice was the theme of the restaurant – the circus.  There were clowns.  I ate my dinner with eyes downcast.  I couldn’t taste the food and I didn’t notice the fountains  😐

Cause and effect

Posted by episode81 on January 4, 2010

How much is too much?

I have always drunk a lot of tea – in a typical day, maybe 8 pints of black tea with fat-free milk.  Yes, 8 pints.  I really like tea.

Every year, at my annual physical, I get told to cut back.  I have never paid any attention to such an outrageous request!  I don’t like to drink water, never liked soda/fizzy drinks (Champagne excepted!) and will drink coffee when Typhoo is not available. Typhoo is expensive in the USA – if you can find it.  My Mum sends me large tea parcels several times a year to keep me going.  Thanks Mum!  I have always firmly believed that caffeine has no effect on me.  Oh, I get withdrawal headaches if I miss a cup here and there, but that’s about it … or so I thought.

I have been “at leisure” recently and, consequently, my tea consumption has dropped as I have no real routine.  Routines are good, but there is something (well, quite a lot actually) to be said for waking up without an alarm clock and planning the day on the fly.

For as long as I can remember, it has taken me 2 hours to fall asleep at night.  I never fall asleep in front of the TV.  I am not a morning person.  At times, I am not much of an afternoon person either.

Not so wordy

Mmmm. Orange!

I still love my new Kindle – even more now that it has a stylish orange cover 🙂  I love orange.  I love my Kindle.  Life is good.
