I have the snuffles and a lovely hacking cough.  That is why I am in bed watching the cast commentary of Fellowship of the Ring at 11am on a Saturday.   Normal service, such as it is, will resume when I feel like it.

Have a good weekend!


This I know

25 09 2007
  • The Foo Fighters’ new album kicks ass. And the video for The Pretender gives me goosebumps. My love affair with Dave Grohl continues.
  • Forgetting people’s birthdays is rubbish and crap and I am sorry, Kirsty!  I even have a fancy new birthday book to help me remember.
  • Online food shopping is FAR superior to the kind where you have to walk around a supermarket with a trolley for an hour with screaming kids and people who don’t look where they are going. I am going to do an online shop after this post to avoid the latter.
  • Aqualung‘s Brighter than Sunshine (heard by me on the soundtrack to A Lot Like Love) makes me happy.
  • Passport photos are destined to make me look hideous, fat-headed and stupid. It is a conspiracy to make the whole customs experience even worse.
  • Jacket potato with baked beans and a little grated cheese is YUM. Gourmet? Hell no. But YUM.

I got this baby from Pink Trees:

1. YOUR ROCK STAR NAME: (first pet & current car)
Squeak Six (sounds better than Squeak Mazda)

2.YOUR GANGSTA NAME: (fav ice cream flavor, favorite cookie)
Rum Raisin Ginger (sounds like a 1940s singer)

3. YOUR “FLY Guy/Girl” NAME: (first initial of first name, first three letters of your last name)
K-Byt (reveals my inner-geek, no?)

4. YOUR DETECTIVE NAME: (favorite color, favorite animal)
Burgundy Tiger

5. YOUR SOAP OPERA NAME: (middle name, city where you were born)
Alexandra Stafford (I like it!!! If I ever go into witness protection I am asking for this!)

6. YOUR STAR WARS NAME: (the first 3 letters of your last name, first 2 letters of your first)

7. SUPERHERO NAME: (2nd favorite color, favorite drink put “The”)
The Purple Marguarita (here to make the Earth safe and ready to party, apparently)

8. NASCAR NAME: (the first names of your grandfathers)
Vernon Victor (How apt is that? A winner’s name if ever there was one!)

9. STRIPPER NAME: (the name of your favorite perfume/cologne, favorite candy)
Allure Peanut Butter Cup (I would say it’s a bit of a mouthful but that would just be crass)

10.WITNESS PROTECTION NAME: (mother’s & father’s middle names )
Isobel John (although I want my soap opera name as above – I didn’t even see this was an option when I said about the Witsec thing… weird!!)

11. TV WEATHER ANCHOR NAME: (Your 5th grade teacher’s last name, a major city that starts with the same letter)
Collins Coventry (I am drawing a sudden blank on teacher’s names. Mrs Collins was from second year a.k.a Year 8 and is the oldest one I can remember – how awful)

12. SPY NAME: (your favorite season/holiday, flower)

Seven hours after sitting glued to the TV watching CNN I had to get on a plane to go to Crete on holiday.  It is the only time I have ever been scared of flying.  I am glad I still went – it is where I met ricardo.  Our days were spent by the pool and our evenings in front of the bar’s huge widescreen TV watching CNN show those clips over and over.  We felt guilty for being on holiday and having a good time so we kept watching because it was all we could do.  That, and drink milkshakes with amaretto.  For all the horrible and stupid loss, I am still so surprised that the number of people killed was below 3,000.  It just didn’t seem possible that so many had managed to get out.  It all happened so quickly.  But the number that didn’t make it is still almost 3,000 too many.
