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??

I consumed
an inadvisedly large amount of alcohol last night, went to bed late and have just got up to do a twelve hour day at work. This makes me feel very stupid.

But your poor plate! (Fridge sounds fab, though.)

I tipped
waste chemicals over my left shoe yesterday.

Does that count?

Nothing to report as yet...
But the day is young and it's only a matter of time.

yes, my fridge is fab (literally, it's called a FAB-32 or something). thank you clendrix, that has cheered me up somewhat.

i suppose the sight of the 2 of us squealing and skating around mushy chickpeas in our pyjamas at 1am was probably quite amusing for the lads in the kitchen across the way as well.

I do
Stuff like that all the time. Only I'm usually lazy enough to leave it til the next day to clean up.

So far not done anything stupid yet, but I just woke up half an hour ago, so give it time.

I chopped up a few apples to go in a smoothie, picked the pieces up, and then promptly chucked them in the bin in a fit of absent-mindedness. The cores and stalks still sat on the chopping board.

I did go for a swim yesterday, in a vague effort to be healthy and active (as opposed to slacking about on here all day eating cake).

I swam. The water was warm and lovely. I did several lengths of the pool. I was proud. All was well. then I got back to the changing room and discovered that I had forgotten to bring a towel. have you ever had to stand in the cubicle to air-dry? and had to dry your hair on a jumper?

*puts dunce hat on*

Couldn't you have put 10p in the hairdryer and used that? All right, you may have attracted some odd looks from the other women in the changing room, but at least it would have been quicker!

I once had my towel stolen at the pool. So I pinched the use of someone else's to dry myself. However, this did mean I had to wander through to the changing room in the buff, which was a bit embarrassing.

a hairdryer?
in the borders?

and besides, I had to dry my hair to be able to air-dry the rest of me, otherwise it would have dripped down and made me all wet again. like you I didn't really want to stand about in the buff in the changing rooms so I stayed in my cubicle like the shy tulip I really am.

the moral of that story is that EXERCISE IS BAD FOR YOU.

get back on the cake!

The Sweary One does that all the time
usually with important stuff, like wine:

Me: Here's a lovely glass of red wine, my love. Drink it, and bask in the lovely warm glow it shall give you, for yay, it truly is the drink of relaxation.

T: Nyeurngh! *arm twitches for no readily apparent reason*

Me: Ah, fuck. I'll get the cloth and the 1001 carpet cleaner...

I read that as though you were replying to HLT, rather than 'Swipe. That is: that you sometimes pour the wine having forgotten to get a glass.

That'd be silly.

^ Yes
It would...

*Ahem* yes, I was replying to La Swipe's original post, not HLT, just to clear up any confusion...

I am a beadlehands.
I'm ridiculously clumsy and have the same problem as the sweary one - things tip over in my hands, things get thrown for no reason, and Mr Maladicta has never forgiven me for breaking the screen on his old phone by stepping on it.

This happens to me daily.
I have a condition generally known as an essential tremor- meaning that not only do my hands shake, but my entire body is afflicted as well, which is why I am incapable of skating, downhill skiing, riding a skateboard, or anything else involving dynamic balance.

It also means that when I go to drink something, I have to have both hands on the glass or I end up wearing it. Eating soup? Damn close to impossible unless I concentrate VERY hard.

It's mortifyingly embarrassing.

@ Loon
It's rubbish isn't it. mr tulip has the same thing although not as badly as you seem to. so you have my sympathy. and some cake.

*cakes, across the pond*
