    Here we go again.
    What is this life if, sweet wordsmith, we have no time to take the pith?
    Every stew starts with the first onion.
    I took it upon myself to investigate a trifle; it had custard, jelly, soggy sponge things...

    Heck, no. She always seems to take at least a week to pay up and I have not been paid for the long-awaited part 8 yet, never mind the bonus.

    Im really not sure how I qualified for that survey to be honest. Every 2 weeks or so it was "have you bought any clothes?".....nope....."is this more or less then usual?" - well it isnt more, is it?......"why did you buy this amount of clothes". I didnt need any?....."what would make you buy less"......err?...."set yourself a target for how much clothes you will buy in the next month"...no can do, who knows when a button will pop off a shirt....

    Yeah. Personally, I buy clothes to replace ones which are falling to bits; I gave up giving a damn about "fashion" before I hit 20. I just happened to need to replace stuff right before the survey began! All a bit hippy dippy, imho but wth, so long as she coughs up? Made more sense than that one I just did. Who knew natural fabrics were so bad for the environment? Still won't persuade me to buy nylon.

    You are such a sweetheart, MLE007. There were only 20 places so I might hazard a guess it will reappear; what conclusions can you possibly draw from such a small sample? At least you can now look out for it.
