Today I will be posting random thoughts as and when they pop into my head. Call it an experiment if you will (or call it the desperate product of a brain-dead mind) but that’s your lot. I urge you to do the same in the comments box. Together we will create a masterpiece of nonsense. Spike will be proud.

Is there a term for that time when you are snoozing in bed and EVERY position you move into is extra comfortable?

At what point will things like this stop making me giggle? It’s childish and immature. I wish our office had cubicles. But then I hate being disturbed each and every minute of the day.

Charmin toilet paper – don’t believe the hype (too much information, right?)

Which movie should I watch tonight? The Passion of the Christ, or The Pianist?

Why IS Diet Pepsi less fizzy than Diet Coke?

Gay school – good thing or bad thing? I say long term bad thing as they aren’t learning to cope with real life. I’m sure it’s making their schooling easier but school is about more than learning ABC, it’s about learning life and unfortunately that also means dealing with bullies.

Arguments used by adults when dealing with children: “If X jumped off the Eiffel Tower, would you do that too?”


You know, flooring the throttle and pulling out across me two lanes in front of me is scary enough. More so when it’s a minibus full of kids. Don’t make things worse by tailgating me to the end of the road. Asshole. Shouldn’t there be speed/acceleration limiters on minibuses?


Friday Five
1. What is your favorite restaurant and why?
Hmmmm probably Cafe Mao. Food was excellent but more because of the night it fell into to.

2. What fast food restaurant are you partial to?
None/Any. Fast food is a convenience so the taste is a secondary consideration – obviously or I wouldn’t be eating fast food!

3. What are your standards and rules for tipping?
Depends on the service and standards of the restaurant. We don’t have the social expectation that a tip will always be left, unlike America. Typically 10% of the bill or so, but that’s only a rough guideline. I HAVE left without tipping a couple of times but as I was leaving midway through the main course I thought that’d be OK.

4. Do you usually order an appetizer and/or dessert?
Depends when we are eating, if it’s an occasion meal, then usually both. A casual dinner, usually a starter. A pig out dinner both twice!!

5. What do you usually order to drink at a restaurant?
If I’m not driving, wine or beer, depends on the food. Ohh and MUST have cold non-sparkling water. If I’m driving Diet Pepsi.
