beware you don't disturb the monster lurking in the lunchroom...

la la la, la la la la, la la la, la la la la - my new neighbour moves in next week. it will be so much fun having such a fabulous friend living just across the road!!!

despite another late night, a distinct lack of sleep and being yelled at by a bad tempered rude customer today, i'm feeling quite happy.

i'm sending out apologies to the universe for biting the head off the temp who intruded into my lunchtime musings. will make a live apology tomorrow...

watching kath'n'kim

today's number is happy and the word is lucky.

laziest day in the history of the universe....

i have done absolutely nothing today. zip, zero, zilch, nada, nothing... couldn't be bothered. i hate it when i get this way - a crash is imminent... may have to work on the project to try and shift some stuff...

this kinda worked against improving my mood but i found it strangely compelling and had to work my way through it...

made a pot of coffee, ricocheted aimlessly around the net and talked for ages to my friend tim (sorry, server reset and cut me off just after i replied to your last question - couldn't reconnect...will continue next time...)

cds played today: greatest hits - duran duran (a sad six or more times...) and californication - red hot chili peppers (trying to get the mood rising - didn't work...)

numbers and words aren't important today...

saturday at the ritz

saturday - the first chance each week to sleep in...

went to see pirates of the caribbean but the ritz was full of screaming children so miss e and i cashed in our tickets to see finding nemo instead. still full of screaming children but we got in before them and got decent seats. v.cute film.

got some yummy noodles and a bottle of turkey flat rose and came back here to watch trainspotting dvd.

today's number is negative...

fry day

it was warm today... almost hot... for spring at least.

no links today as again i'm too tired (ha ha, i've cheated and edited this on saturday morning to put some links in...).
got to stop drinking, not eating properly and going to bed so damned late...

did you talk like a pirate today?

poor old slim dusty.

Thursday, September 18, 2003


had a look at miss e's new flat this morning - i want to move across the road too!!!

too tired to do much else...

Wednesday, September 17, 2003


don't ask me when, just know that it will happen.... thank you for your patience...

today's word is tadpoling... funny how a word you haven't used since you were a kid pops up twice in a day... i mean it in the sense of going down to the creek with jars and catching tadpoles i.e. froglets (although i have done the toy boy thing... prefer real men now...)

the number is a wrong one... ha ha ha

no cds today - going to have an early night so there wont be any either. if i wasn't so tired, i'd play robbie williams - he's looking for wife - go girls!
