Day 96, Part I: Another 2-fer Day
Wednesday, April 06, 2011      13 comments

...as in 'two for the price of one.' I can't remember if two-fer is Yank-speak and BOGOF (bog-off) is Brit, or t'other way around. I don't lose the American accent, but after while the line blurs - in my own head, that is - between which idioms ... Read more
Day 95: Behind, Behinder, Behindest...
Tuesday, April 05, 2011      10 comments

I don't think it gets more behind than that, lol. When I worked at the bank, occasionally I would get a customer who had an existing checking account but wanted to open a new, second checking. Why? Because s/he would have the current one so... Read more
Day 94: S-L-O-W Day!
Monday, April 04, 2011      13 comments

The back is better, but I'm taking it easy. The next time I go to the GP I think I'll ask him about a 'bone density' test or whatever. Tho there were plenty of old ladies in my family who've never gotten osteoporosis (lotta dairy farmers in my a... Read more
Day 93: Also Short'n'Sweet
Sunday, April 03, 2011      5 comments

Mainly because there's some 'sweet' news: the back seems moderately better. I've been winnowing more specific-for-backs exercises, but instead of simply trying to make it more comfortable, I want doable things that will actually strengthen it. I... Read more

Day 91, Part II: Quiet End to a Foolish Start
Friday, April 01, 2011      16 comments

This morning while Himself was in the shower, I sneaked into his office and put a leetle tiny piece of scotch tape on the bottom of his computer mouse, over the laser 'eye.' I admit, he has a good sense of humor - better'n mine, I imagine. He en... Read more
Day 91, Part I: Early AM Day-Brightener
Friday, April 01, 2011      3 comments

A day or two ago I posted an early blog featuring the, ah, work of someone who likes to play with food. This morning while browsing my round of news headlines and websites, I came across the following. http://www.google.co.uk/

Day 90: *sigh*
Thursday, March 31, 2011      16 comments

Today was just a washout of a day. I hurt my back (again) this morning and it's been nagging at me all day long - not enough to really incapacitate me (thank goodness) but enough to keep me from doing 90% of what I wanted to do. I did get t... Read more
Day 89, Part II: Somewhat Longer, But With Less Sass
Wednesday, March 30, 2011      8 comments

I'm glad you enjoyed those 'bent objects' pix. We all seem to have so many food issues that sometimes it's good to get a laff out of the very stuff that can bedevil us, thinks me. It took me two hours (!) to do an online project that I feel... Read more
Day 89, Part I: Short 'n' Sassy
Wednesday, March 30, 2011      7 comments

Off to go 'n' do in a moment - bizzy day today, with a doctor's appointment for BP check, amongst other things, but while I was skimming the headlines, I found this: ... Read more
Day 88: Well, I'll be darned--!
Tuesday, March 29, 2011      14 comments

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." --Charles Dickens, 'A Tale of Two Cities' No, it wasn't like that today - no dramatic ups and downs (for which I'm glad, mind you), nothing major or outstanding in either direction. T... Read more

Nobody likes me - Everybody hates me! I'm going out in the garden and eat worms! Big fat juicy ones, Little teeny-tiny ones - Oohh, how the squishy ones squirm! ... Read more
Day 86: Just Another Day...
Sunday, March 27, 2011      8 comments

Nothing to discuss, nothing to bring up, nothing to talk about. Not a peep out of the realtor. Wonder if I scared them off? (Do I look worried? lol) Nutty Joe was back at it, but was pretty much dissuaded by lights on in the rooms. Since he... Read more
Day 85: Saturday 'n' Birdbrain 'n' Stuff
Saturday, March 26, 2011      11 comments

I deliberately set the alarm for a half-hour earlier than usual because tonight we change the clocks ahead an hour and I figure if I get up a half-hour earlier today, and a half-hour earlier tomorrow, by Monday I'll be on the right time. Or some... Read more
Day 84, Part II: ...and it's GoodNight from me--!
Friday, March 25, 2011      11 comments

No sooner did I post the previous blog and get up from the computer to start my day than the phone rang. It was the woman from the agency who had called yesterday. She was apologetic, polite, and very understanding. I didn't have to get ratty (f... Read more
