    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 7:20 AM
    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.
    -I've pulled a muscle in my leg and have to drag it behind me, quasimodo style
    -OH ate all the bread so I can't have toast for breakfast

    Wonder if that caffeine shampoo works Pyxis? Or does drinking loads of coffee do the same? Shrug.



    Agreed, the bbc news site is weird. I suggested in one of their surveys that they have a much longer list of stories on the front page but they apparently dont agree

    It's a digital world now. With information, as opposed to story telling, you want to access what you want when you want. With news you sometimes just want the end of the story.
    But you need an index.

    I am moulting.

    I don't know if it's because it's hot, or because my hair is a fair bit longer than it used to be, and so I'm brushing it more and noticing it mor.

    Never had one but I have ridden one. Weird because you can't see the front wheel.

    Google is better laid out, and has more options to personalise it.
    Somehow I'm not keen on that either though.
    It's too smart. Seems to want to know what you're thinking!

    I think a cow not very far away must have belly ache or something. Constant loud mooing for the past two hours or so.

    It seems that ANYTHING I eat is giving me stomach ache at the moment And I seem to feel extremely full after a small amount.

    I am permanently bloated - it's painful and annoying!

    Get it checked Flick, probably nothing other than IBS or some kind of intolerance but bloating can also be a symptom of something not so innocent.

    Ha ha, I've just noticed the link between those 2 posts I quoted. Should I ask Gloomendoom if he lives near Flick?
