    Mundane Thread II

    So, got new rear shocks for the car on Saturday.

    This Saturday I'm having the rustproofing done.

    Had the furnace repaired, too.

    Anyone get new shoelaces?

    Should've gone to etc.

    I get mine by post from VisionDirect. I bet Chuka is sorry that name is taken.

    I ordered new contact lenses on Tuesday. They said 2 weeks but then texted me yesterday to say they were in and ready for collection. I think they may have made a mistake.

    Refried beans
    Rice crackers
    Basmati rice
    Washing powder
    Dartboard

    Watching "Mom" at the moment, and there was just a brief scene where Alison Janney showed why she is such a brilliant actor. (She found out that her foster sister's dad killed her mom... and just the eyes did all the work. Truly amazing.)

    I wish I had a job where I could while away my day on OTF and get paid while doing it.

    That's a weird way to talk about Charlie Coyle

    I wanted to write “”launched”” rather than “released” but that would have been followed by phrases such as “rockets strapped to the shell” and “ascribed an arc through the air” and I would have collapsed in a fit of giggles.

    Currently stood on a beach having just watched a (previously injured) turtle be released back into the sea after six months rehab.

    It was unexpectedly emotional.

    Hugh gave me my first job out of university in 1989 and we became fast friends. Went to each other's weddings and all that. Just talked to him yesterday. He's doing very well. Not a desk jockey any more, so he doesn't while away his days on here

    I'm enjoying a glass of Hermannator Ice Bock from Vancouver Island Brewing Company. It's 9.5% a/v, which is fairly strong even by local standards. I don't think I'll be having another if I intend to finish preparing dinner.

    Is Hugh an old friend or ex-work colleague?

    Is he keeping well? Don't often see him around these parts anymore.

    Mr Hugh Fatbastard and I got really really really really really drunk and sick on that shit in New Orleans once. Never been able to touch it since.

    I prefer the approach of "can I have yours?".

    I really, really love Jäger(meister).

    She's a joke stealer so probably not.

    Actually my Uncle is in and out of hospital at the moment and has been diagnosed with COPD so we are bracing ourselves.

    My Great Auntie was 94 when she died and we had already lost her to Alzheimers so it was that peculiar sad relief in this case.

    God, this weekend is going to be soooo boring.

    The follow-up visit isn't until the 7th so I'm slightly concerned about it flying out due to over enthusiastic Hey!-ing at Giuda next week.

    I went to my great Aunt's funeral today. She was from the Faroes so various Scandinavian relatives had come over for it. Afterwards as we left the crematorium, we had a powerful hailstorm with massive ice pellets and a lightning bolt hit the ground nearby in a frighteningly close near miss.

    I don't approve of Jägerbombs, BTW, as I don't have caffeine any more. I have my Jäger neat, the way it should be done.

    Sounds like we should be toasting your lucky escape for a while longer at least. Prosit!
