She looks so surprised! What a cutie. How old is she, Ali?

Aliantha 12-07-2012 05:55 PM

She's 10 weeks old now choco. Getting bigger by the second. ;) You know what that's about huh? :)

I don't need much. And contrary to previous threats and advice, it seems I can survive.

So I'm silly with happiness, getting ready to polish off one more assignment in this week of exams and papers and bleh, sipping a nice cab and admiring the flowers on my table, and ... hoping I'll run across some humor and poetry and general wit here tonight that's beyond me, but which I can appreciate. :)

Cheers!

The Merry Recluse!

Oh Ali it really did!
Going to print off a copy for Mum.

You wouldn't want me to cuddle her right now, because I am dying of bad cold/ throat infection - which has stopped me seeing the twins this weekend - booooo. I'd give her a squeeze if I could though. I'm not into babies per se, but those of friends and family are very loveable, because they can leave ;)

Do you realise you have the same amount of children - and same genders - as the Beckhams? There, next time you bump into her you know you have something in common.

Thanks also for your post re liver damage.
It's very good to know someone else who has been through it and come out of the other side. The Doctors did stress the regenerative properties of the liver, but the symptoms have really crash landed on me (especially my skin) so it has felt like walking around on bail.

'bail' as in you're out of jail or is there some substance called 'bail' that I don't know about but imagine as like sharp rocks on barefeet.

Sundae 12-09-2012 05:50 AM

Sorry, out on bail, not something new and exciting.

I think there are probably enough street drugs out there that make you feel like you're on bail - paranoid and walking on a shifty surface. Shit, even wearing a new pair of shoes makes me feel like The Little Mermaid. The original one I mean, not the peculiar undersea hoarder, Ariel.

Trilby 12-09-2012 05:53 AM

but Ariel did hoard some good stuff.

She had a Georges de la Tour down there ya know. A Mary Magdelene one.

Just as well I'm half a world away then if you're sick. ;)

Didn't know that about the beckhams. lol Don't care too much either, although chances of running into them are apparently more likely since apparently Davo is considering coming over here to play soccer.

Your liver will be fine. Just be good to it and all will be well mate. give it lots of lovely healthy whole foods and water. Get yourself some liver tonic or supplements if you can and think positive. :) You're going to be fine. xxx

Investigate this for yourself, Sundae, but milk thistle (sold anywhere, really) is supposed to be good for your liver.


Ask your local hippie shop personnel.

Phew.

Went for a walk at lunchtime today and decided to go all the way over to check out the National Christmas Tree behind the White House. I knew I would be cutting it a bit close, because I had to be back to my building for a short presentation I had to give to new hires about our department. Well, as soon as I stepped through the open gate into the area behind the White House, the cop standing there closed it behind me. They were locking down that area so a motorcade or something could go through! Normally, I'd stick around to see who it would be, but by closing that gate, I couldn't go back the way I came and instead had to walk about 5 additional blocks around the perimeter of the far side of the White House to get back to my office. Grr.

So I took a quick shot of the Christmas tree and started hustling the long way back. Had to take my jacket off, because I was eventually breaking a sweat. Checking my watch the whole time. I had 15 minutes to go about 12 blocks. I really needed 20 minutes.

But I got back to my building and straight into the conference room just 30 seconds before the department before me finished their bit. Phew.

I know you were on the edge of your seat. But you can relax now. It all worked out.

Here's the tree.

Well, with all that pagan symbolism, it assures me the Obama isn't a Muslim. :D

The small trees look underdressed.

(Making The Run To) Gladewater Lyrics
By Michelle Shocked

Upshur County's drier than an empty bottle
Since the Mormon's come to town
And to run out of beer means a run to Gladewater
Highway 79 thirty miles on down

Now fair is fair but life's a gamble
When it's eleven forty five
And it's a toss of the coin to see who's got fifteen minutes
To make a thirty minute drive


It was Saturday night
You was sitting 'round the square
Small town Texas sons and daughters
But you lost the toss

That means you're taking up the money
That means you're making the run
Making the run
Making the run to Gladewater

Here's what you do
You hustle all your buddies off
The back of your truck
You grab your girl, you say, c'mon let's

Tuck your jeans in your boots
That's what you do
Slap your gimme cap on
Turn the country music radio station
Louder than you ought to

But it's okay, you're on your way
You lost the toss
You're taking up the money
You're making the run to Gladewater

Run, boys

It's 79 to the county line
And the Mini Mart with not one to spare
And your friends back in Gilmer
They're your friends indeed
Why? Well, you got their money
And their six pack of beer

Making the run
Making the run, making the run
Making the run to Gladewater

The icing arrived, so I can do my Christmas cake today! Yay!!!
