If it flies, floats or fucks, rent it.
One I keep in mind for when I become very rich.

» My Biggest Disappointment

Holiday... (beware, not funny!)
We have been making holiday plans for long and we really needed the break from our busy jobs. At the end of May mrs. Doxy, Little Doxy and brother in law (from now BiL), SiL (you get it?) and their little daughter went to a rented house in France.

Once arrived, the atmosphere was not really hollidayish. It turned out that Sil told Bil on the (long) way to the cottage that after 6 years of marriage and a little daughter of 3 she felt not right about the direction her life was going.

It went downhill very fast and deep after a few days when he disovered that she was seeing someone on the side. He read a few saucy texts in her mobile. Cue much swearing, a window got broken and he drove back home at insane speed, leaving Sil and their daughter with us.

The next few days consisted of comforting Sil, Bil (over the mobile phone), playing referee in their lenghty discussions over the phone, making plans for the trip home (a week early) and babysitting the little Doxy (for him no single care in the world) and the little daughter of the inlaws. (knew instinctively that something was wrong, so her mood was fragile.)

Anyway, that was our holiday this year.

Now there is a messy divorce going on , including bona fide suicide attempt. But that will be one for another QOTW

Oh, and the weather? Shitty. In one and a half week two days without constant rain.

Length? Had been lurking for four years now.

Stirred, not shaken...
Even people who don't drink coffee or tea know them, those white plastic disposable stirring rods with one wide end with a hole in it and one narrow end.

I drink my coffee black, no sugar thank you, but when I spot someone else reaching for the stirrers, I convince him/her that the wide end is for holding the stirrer while the narrow end has to be submerged in the beverage to be stirred. Of course you, fellow B3tans and savvy people of the world and teh interwebz, know that it is the other way round.. or do you?

Over the years I have a believer/non-believer ratio of about 1:1, so I must be doing something right... Never seen anyone actually stirring his/her drink upside down, though.

Length? Not sure, I never use them.
