Late entry for the "accidental innuendo"...
I needed cat litter, among other groceries. So I wrote an abbreviated shopping list on the back of my hand.

Thus is was that I wandered around sporting the word "c.lit". And it took me ages to locate, too.

Oh, well.

cooked dinner
for 4 tonight. v healthy, low-fat veggie curry, quite tasty but ultimately bulky as full of about 8,000,000 different vegetables. and chickpeas. round, roll-y little chickpeas.

however, there were actually only 2 of us to eat it. so lots of leftovers.

tried to put the massive full plate of curry in the fridge. i have a beautiful retro pink smeg fab to go in my sleek dark grey, glass table and stripped wooden floored kitchen. oh and some lovely pale pink plates.

yeah. not any more. somehow i did the spakkerdance just putting the plate on the shelf. there are pieces of plate and fucking chickpeas EVERYWHERE. the fridge looks as if a giant chucked up in it. it's running down the freezer door. it's all over my formerly shiny floor.

and... worst of all... (she says as she was so distressed and flappy that her flatmate got out of bed to clean it all up) i BROKE MY BEAUTIFUL PLATE. i am a complete and utter wankpot.

has anyone else done anything this stupid today??

It's been interesting reading
what other people have done with their lives, degree or not.


Film and media studies with video production BA Hons. Where has it got me?

Two years at the BBC in the news editing department, then two years at Blockbuster video head office, wine buyer for M&S and slacker at Lush cosmetics. Now a trainee veterinary nurse earning roughly about the same as I did before I started my degree but with huge career prospects and I look forward to going into work each day.

So if /talk tells us to piss off back to the QOTW
does that mean we get to return the favor if they're in here? Or should we just be fluffeh and add them to our already swelling Ignore lists?

Just like Gunther below, I'd like to thank whoever it was that recommended Hooverphonic to me the other week in the music thread...I think it was The Supreme Crow.

I've downloaded their discography...very good, very good indeed.

I also have b3ta to thank for Cat Power - not the relentless drive of felines to take over the world, but rather the lovely lady singer.

Great stuff.

Death & the Penguin
Not trying to revive an old subject, but want to thank whoever recommended the above during the "This Book..." QOTW.

Truly one of the best books I've read for a long time... not life changing, but brilliant.

I posted this on the main board, but I reckon it's prolly more at home here.
From the Beeb news site:

William's Ship Seizes Drugs Haul
Prince William's warship, HMS Iron Duke, has seized cocaine valued at £40m, in the West Indies, the Ministry of Defence has said.

The prince is spending five weeks on board the frigate as it patrols the North Atlantic.

Sources at Kensington Palace say that Prince Harry is "inconsolably disappointed".

I used to hang out with A listers
Well, mainly Z-listers in reality. I'd go to all the crazy parties and meet all the new novelty chart acts.

It wasn't long until I met a true intellectual equal and while all the other party guests were on the laughing candy, I argued long and hard about the need for a good LBW defense stroke, the triviality of Tolkien, the genius of Presidents Bush & Bush. Yes, that one from the Cheeky Girls was truly my perfect woman.

We started seeing each other in more formal occasions outside of the Soho set and before long I was going on double dates with her twin sister and her bloke. It would happen too frequently as it turned out eventually stifling our relationship.

Yes folks, my love suffered as a result of Oft Opik.

w00t my first punnage.

I hate them.

Stems back to when I was a mere nipper going fishing - I'd mislaid a rod rest and went trekking back across the horse infested field looking for it - no joy. On my way back, one of the foul creatures looked at me, so I jokingly asked where it had hidden the rod rest. Fecker ran up and bit me.

Having said I hate them - they do taste damn good...

Um..is that off topic enough?
