Not much to tell.

Monday, April 02, 2007


  • Son's height makes me feel older than his age does.

  • Why do I put off preparing the taxes when I almost always get some money back?

  • Why did I give up chocolate for Lent when I had such a hard time doing just that last year?

  • Why is it okay to smell like dirt after working in the garden, but if you smell like dirt any other time, you're just dirty?

  • Daughter told me that I looked "bulky." She said it as though it was a compliment. Bulky?

  • How much is too much to spend on Easter candy? And do the calories count if the candy you eat was stolen from your children's baskets?

  • Why was I so sad when our stockbroker died recently? I never even met the man.

  • Why do I care who the father of Anna Nicole's baby is? And why do I hope it's Larry?

  • Am I the only person who doesn't care that CDs replaced vinyl? Am I the only person who finds CDs preferable?

  • Why do I feel embarrassed that son's school guidance counselor called while I had music blasting? Isn't it better that she heard tunes than the t.v.?

  • And once again, why do these thoughts, and others equally inane, swim about my brain?

Comment on that last point: Because you are one of us, with all the attendant human frailties.

I can relate to several of these. As to giving up chocolate for Lent, I think I would pick something else to forfeit. Like rutabagas or parsley. Never chocolate...

I like it when people call and I am listening to radio 4 (the - I'm trying to think what to call it - serious? no, worthy one). I don't turn it off straightaway to give them to register that I am clever!

I've given up computer solitaire. Sometimes my fingers twitch they're so desperate to play.

Having gone through the tax man saying I was being penalised and owed them £100, now he says they owe me 1p.

Stolen calories never count. Just like grated cheese doesn't have calories because it's all broken up and aired.

A very happy Easter to you and Hershey, Elsie. Hope you're really tucking into the chocolate!

Winston, the chocolate thing was harder than you'd think, but rutabags would be just about impossible ;) I ate so much chocolate yesterday that it'll probably be another 40 days before I can stomach any more!

Liz, I didn't know that cheese is exempt, too! I'm one happy lady.

Jack. Thanks.
