I have subtitles turned on when watching TV due to my wonky hearing and it amuses me no end sometimes hearing a dubbed in mild expletive & then seeing the original swear word in print at the bottom of the screen

Repairing my steel gauntlers has actually been kinda fun.

And seeing as people at work have NO Idea what they are, I may just have to bring them in.


After polishing them nice and shiny

So which character is you? And which Mytical?

(Call me Ponder)
I'm really not sure... I would say that Mytical is closest in character to Sam Vimes - in that he has an instinctive feeling for what is right and just, though his methods are usually unconventional...

Me? I would love the political acumen of Vetinari, the othersightedness of Granny Weatherwax and the ability that Death has to make time stand still... but I suspect I'm a mixture of Glenda (because I'm proud of my cooking) and Nutt (because I read voraciously)

Actually, I shouldn't mind Nutt's incredible physical strength either....

My birthday is in 8 days. I don't get people who are all depressed about their birthdays. You survived another year!

Opened some curry sauce to make my dinner and discovered the unopened jar had mold in it! I now don't want to eat. (Yes I have emailed the company and complained).

Wondering why my boss said she'll try and let me leave early at times this week to make up for me only having one day off, then adding hours to my shifts with little notice.

My ear infection had me convinced that they were playing "Darling Nikki" at work.

Trying to keep myself from looking like a poodle stuck in a wind tunnel is hard. Today's treatment is coco butter, set it in my hair for an hour, rinsed it out, then letting what is left sit the rest of the day and over night, thank goodness I have no plans, then washing it out in the morning. Next time I think I will be adding coconut oil and just a little bit of olive oil. All three seem to make my hair a bit nicer, why not add them all together! Lesigh, hopefully once I wash this goo out my hair will look great, I went from poodle stuck in a wind tunnel to poodle went from a wind tunnel to oil slick.
It will work eventually, it's good stuff for my hair, just keep telling myself that, yep, I suck at being a girl....

Your doing better than I would :P

Its friday.... this should be a paid weekend day. Cos I said so. That is all. Maybe I should run for Prime Minister, make that my election promise.

On a side note, the Gauntlets should be sewn to my new gloves this weekend. Then another cut and polish with beeswax mixed with Gun Oil. Then bring them into work.

But no issuing a challenge ala Robin Hood: Men in Tights.


Why is it described as 'cut and polish'?....
