So I have fettled the house and walked the Toast and now is time for a little more amusement to chase the screaming meanies away. I love Neil Gaiman’s books and I found this courtesy of my friend Katy’s blog, hope you enjoy..
Almost the first thing I saw when I opened my lap top this morning was a link sent to me by a friend the contents of which purported to be horribly hilarious . Now, normally that would go straight in the bin but as this particular friend and I share a similar sense of humour I thought I would check it out.
I couldn’t even read the whole thing because I was seriously worried I was going to do myself an injury by laughing too hard and too long. I waited till I got home from work to read a little more – still couldn’t finish it.
So here is the link for you my friends – hope you haven’t read it before but if so, it’s still funny a second time..think of it as a Solstice present to you all.
Share and Enjoy
one more sleep..
Got to be my most favourite image of the year..
Paul Kidby’s ‘The Band with Rocks In ‘
p.s. this will make no sense to you if you do not know of the Discworld – if you don’t know, you should 😉
(3 more sleeps)
I came across Mark Steel when we moved to the UK the first time in 2003. He was on the radio with a series called The Mark Steel Lectures where he argued for the importance of particular historical figures, fascinating AND funny. I loved it.
I would have posted a video of one of the lectures from the t.v. version off You Tube but it won’t let me embed for some reason, so you will have to check them out for yourself.
Today we tuned in to listen to Chain Reaction on BBC Radio Four and were pleased to discover that Mark Steel was being interviewed by the equally brilliant Kevin Eldon – if you are in need of a laugh you can find it here for the next 6 days.
Oh and a photo of me wearing my latest creation 🙂
Outside it is doing its darndest to snow and inside I am hiding away from the world – for its own sake I might add.
I awoke this morning psychopathically hormonial (my word). I discovered the psychopathic part when I attempted to cash a NZ fifty dollar note firstly at the post office and then at the bank. Mr T had unthinkingly buggered off to work with all the finances and as it is market day I thought to exchange my Christmas money for real money and buy some necessaries and maybe the odd unnecessary. It had taken quite a lot of effort to get myself out the door and I had promised myself an almond croissant from the french bakers stall for being a good girl.
Blood arose in front of my eyes as the pleasant lady behind the counter told me that there is nowhere in Hay that will cash the note and that I would need to go to Hereford – an hours bus trip away………. FOR FUCKS SAKE!!! FUCKETY, FUCKETY FUCK!!
So I went home
For tea and cake and crochet
And not to deal with this, which is difficult in a room this small..
And then a very kind person sent me this
Until next time – aint life grand?
Heavens to Murgatroid, I love this blog – take a visit and it’s more than likely that at least some of the thousand will make you smile 🙂 Thank you so much Sue for finding it.
