    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 am irritated by this rain. I should go shopping, but I don't want a bad hair day.

    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.

    I had some yummy Twizzlers delivered at work today - I have eaten most of them. I feel sick. Not just a bit queasy but I actually wish I could go and be sick.

    I still want to eat another Twizzler.

    Well, they've done it to me again. Stopped producing something I really like.

    This time it's Sainsbury's Caramel Panna Cotta.

    Went into my Sainsbury's Local earlier, got a Prawn Makhani and wanted the Panna Cotta for dessert. Not there, no sticker on the shelf, so asked an assistant. Yup, my worse fears realised, they have stopped stocking them, permanently, having done a big shift of products.

    Now, given that I don't like chocolate, remember?, and a lot of desserts are too sickly, these Panna Cottas, (Panne Cotte?) were one of the few things I really liked. Sainsbury's had been stocking them for years and years. At one point they changed the recipe, and they became sickly sweet, so I stopped buying them, but then a while later, they changed the recipe back again.

    (Other supermarkets do Panna Cottas (Panne Cotte?) but they aren't nice at all, even though they look exactly the same. They are much too sweet).

    I am rapidly running out of things I really like.

    They still have them showing online so hopefully it's just that branch which have stopped stocking them.

    It's a shame you can't freeze them or you could order enough to meet the minimum spend for delivery and know that you're not going to run out of them any time soon.

    I was thinking exactly that. They are unfreezable.

    If it is just that branch, I will breathe a sigh of relief.

    I was right fed up when they stopped stocking my favourite Sacla pasta sauce across all the stores.

    And my favourite handwash.

    I'm expecting my favourite beer to go any day soon.
    And my favourite hair taming cream.

    Isn't that something made by Bernard Matthews and banned from school canteens?
