    Not sure if I'm going to get told off for this since I'm not sure why the last one migrated, but...

    1. I stepped in a puddle on my way in to work and now I've got a wet foot.
    2. I've got Cascada's 'Evacuate the Dancefloor' stuck in my head. I'm infected by the sound, as it were.
    3. I've just noticed I've got toothpaste on my top.

    That despite being a relatively virtuous civil servant, I'm not in purdah but in a "sensitive pre-election period".

    Other than being wryly amused that finally the chaps get a period too, I am a tad miffed we're not using the old possibly politically incorrect but eminently well-understood term.

    Oh aye & the blokes are looking distinctly We Are Not Amused at the entire period idea.

    What's wrong with purdah? It's a word in our vocabulary like many others of Arabic/Asian origin.

    In English, it no longer means the segregation of women, but has come to mean a general segregation of specific people or individuals.

    Its ultra-original meaning was 'curtain'.



    Damn, I thought it was Privates Message. Boy, have I been sending the wrong kind of message.

It's in Africa, accept it and stop saying it was founded by aliens because it's too impossible to believe that. So called "primitive" people built the pyramids when there are ancient pyramids all over the globe.

    This interview with Philip Hammond really really annoys me for some reason and shows how out of touch they are with the real World and how instead of answering questions they just throw lots of meaningless figures in the air...

    Lack of work.
    My job is dull enough at the best of times but when I have no work coming in it makes getting to the end of the day a hideous endurance test.

    I'm finding street dancing very irritating lately. Some folk can do some very impressive things, but I find the body-popping and the skipping about bits a bit annoying and the whole "dance battle" thing is really getting on my tits.

    I know that I shouldn't eat 5 doughnuts because it will make me feel sick and bloated. I ate 5 doughnuts. I feel sick and bloated. I need supervision.

    I now no longer eat doughnuts and just stick to the red wine

    I never feel sick or bloated with five

    I completely forgot that Virgin were doing work in my area today and that my broadband would be down

    I realised how little I use the computer when I don't have an internet connection

    Shin causing me grief and severe pain - gone worse past couple of days. Hardly slept last night, Went docs at 7:35am to queue outside. Referred me for an X-ray which I did this morning. Got to wait a WHOLE WEEK - which is going to be the longest week ever. Still got 8 hours of work when infact I just want to cry or sleep.

    They were spread over about 4 hours. Back before my IBS kicked in, I could have done it in one sitting, along with a load more stuff. It sounds like one of those weird health stories ("I cured my binge-eating with IBS!").

    Not exactly. I sometimes get it into my head that if I don't eat everything now someone will steal it or it'll go off, so I have to eat it all while I have the chance. It's one of my more annoying compulsions. It's worse on the days when my food's delivered and I suddenly have all this food in front of me.
