Two Dwellars have already made me laugh this morning.
The start of a better year...

Pun's are the best
Here's Mons

As are twists
And Here's Capnhowdy

Thanks sky and Lamp.

Sundae,Isn't it awful that our subconscious weak spots play out in our dreams. Fortunately, we can kick them to the curb. I hope you are feeling better. I looked up the meaning of planes crashing. It means 'self doubt'. Yeah, no kidding. Wish they would tell me something I didn't know for a change. I understand the destructive power of being unemployed can be BUT the future is unwritten and the future is ours to write. right?! right.

Lamp, Yes the ice cold makes for some good sunrises, and I think I see a lighted tree in that shot? Nice pic!

Turns out JB is performing tonight, so we might get to see him after all.
Dana, his understudy is bound to have a more heightened part having carried the show for over a week, so I'm sure we'll get to see him anyway. And his heightened part.

Reports back from the fan-listing suggest John looks tired, but is still on good form.
Fingers crossed.

You got your train tickets sorted out yet missus?

Got my other MRI report today and will see the doc on Wednesday. As I suspected the dom shoulder is more fucked up that the other one, but I don't know all of the nitty gritty and according to the surgeon, you really don't know for sure until you get in there and start ferreting about.

So we'll talk ferreting on Wednesday. Glad to be moving forward on this, but not completely excited about the 6-12 months of re-hab.
OTOH, maybe I can start playing catch with my son...

In FSM's name, foot, I hope you get it fixed before your son ends up in the bus station..
In seriousness, good luck with that - the immediate future might not be bright, but in 12 months time things will be much better...? Yeah, not ideal.

I'm happy AGAIN today!
Today has been a good day for me!
I've discovered that Channel 4 Ondemand have both series of Chelmsford 123 available! Okay, it's dated, and not the laff-a-minute I remember, but it's still wry, dry and FFS shows a fit young Rory McGrath... as a ginger! Give me 15 minutes alone with Badvoc, I'll make him cry for mercy. I'd do Aulus too.

Oh and The Big Fat Quiz of the Year is on in half an hour.
No Robert Mitchall or Rob Brydon or even Charlie Brooker sadly.
But Noel Fielding at least.

After 35 years of DIY home repairs,
I have just found a good way to fix the hair-line and small cracks in plaster ceilings.

Windex has been known by humanity since pre-time for all kinds of human ailments and conditions,
but it dribbles down your arm when you load your putty knife for overhead work.
Duct tape works fine for larger cracks, but it often frays about the edges when it gets old.
Plaster and Spackle compounds are the first choice of novice DIYers,
but these require experience, drying time, sanding, etc.

Enter KILZ (latex), the white, stain-killing, extra-fast drying, "paint-like" compound
that also kills odors, such as burnt/smoke damaged wood, and cleans up with water.

I just spread KILZ the length of the crack, then brushed it into the crack from each side.
Being liquid, it is drawn up into the crack, but it's thick enough to
smooth out the surface, even if one edge is not level with the other.

I'm very pleased for myself. :biggrinlo
Our house is 100+ years and cracks were rampant... not any more.

HungLikeJesus 01-03-2011 05:17 PM

I'm glad to see that you figured out how to fill your crack, LL.

Big Fat Quiz of the Year was great as usual. Love the Fielding. Also, Jimmy Carr, one of my favourite comedians. Sundae, I haven't got ticket sorted yet. It's on my list of things to do tomorrow :P

What's making me happy right now? Other than the whole going-to-Glasgae-for-Pantomime-and-my-homegals thing: I just bought myself a tv:)

Been putting it off for ages. The tv I have is an old 15 inch bedroom combo set that mum's neighbour was ditching at around about the same time my old telly was dying. That was about 3 years ago.

Anyways: the big sales advertising campaigsn finally got me. They've been touting the beat the VAT Rise thing all over Christmas and it ends midnight tonight, as that's when the new VAT levels begin to apply.

After all that I didn't end up getting one of the sale items, but it was still a decent deal and it would still have been more expensive to wait til the new VAT levels apply.

Here it is: my new 27 inch HD LED tv:)

OMG I just discovered the most useful thing ever! (For me, anyway.)

I get chronic, severe nosebleeds in the winter, ever since I was a kid. They can start without warning--usually in public because it's more fun that way--and gush for up to half an hour, no matter how much pressure I put on it. When I was younger they were lightly concerned about hemophilia, but they ruled it out a few times. Evidently I just have totally wussy nasal membranes.

So Minifobette has been taking Vitamin K in concentrated drops. And it occurs to me, as I'm typing one-handed while the other keeps the bloodied kleenex jammed up my nostril, that Vitamin K is a clotting factor. Hospitals give a Vit K injection to all newborns to prevent umbilical-stump bleeding problems immediately after birth. "I wonder if maybe I should take a few doses of her medicine sometime and see if it helps," I think to myself. But that doesn't help me right now, 10 minutes into my 3rd nosebleed of the day. So instead I take a fresh kleenex, and drip a couple drops of the Vitamin K oil directly onto the wadded tip, and cram it back up my nose.

The bleeding stopped almost immediately. You cannot believe how happy this makes me.

On a scale from 1 to 10, I'd guess very.

I told everyone who asked for present ideas this Christmas that I wanted a graduated cylinder so I could mix mohitos with more success this summer. But nobody wanted to buy my a graduated cylinder as a present. Who knows? Maybe the crack down on meth has made them illegal now.

So at lunch time, I walked over to Bed Bath and Beyond and bought one of these for myself. Close enough.

Sometimes, it's the little things.

That is awesome.

I remember a bunch of years ago my little brother wanted a Chia Head for christmas. He figured no one would think anyone else would get him one so EVERYONE would get him one and he'd get nothing but Chia heads. Feast or famine, it seems. I think I was the designated Chia head purchaser.
