...as in 'two for the price of one.' I can't remember if two-fer is Yank-speak and BOGOF (bog-off) is Brit, or t'other way around. I don't lose the American accent, but after while the line blurs - in my own head, that is - between which idioms ... Read more
I don't think it gets more behind than that, lol.
When I worked at the bank, occasionally I would get a customer who had an existing checking account but wanted to open a new, second checking. Why? Because s/he would have the current one so... Read more
The back is better, but I'm taking it easy. The next time I go to the GP I think I'll ask him about a 'bone density' test or whatever. Tho there were plenty of old ladies in my family who've never gotten osteoporosis (lotta dairy farmers in my a... Read more
Mainly because there's some 'sweet' news: the back seems moderately better. I've been winnowing more specific-for-backs exercises, but instead of simply trying to make it more comfortable, I want doable things that will actually strengthen it. I... Read more
This morning while Himself was in the shower, I sneaked into his office and put a leetle tiny piece of scotch tape on the bottom of his computer mouse, over the laser 'eye.' I admit, he has a good sense of humor - better'n mine, I imagine. He en... Read more

I did get t... Read more
I'm glad you enjoyed those 'bent objects' pix. We all seem to have so many food issues that sometimes it's good to get a laff out of the very stuff that can bedevil us, thinks me.
It took me two hours (!) to do an online project that I feel... Read more
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." --Charles Dickens, 'A Tale of Two Cities'
No, it wasn't like that today - no dramatic ups and downs (for which I'm glad, mind you), nothing major or outstanding in either direction. T... Read more
Nothing to discuss, nothing to bring up, nothing to talk about. Not a peep out of the realtor. Wonder if I scared them off? (Do I look worried? lol)
Nutty Joe was back at it, but was pretty much dissuaded by lights on in the rooms. Since he... Read more
I deliberately set the alarm for a half-hour earlier than usual because tonight we change the clocks ahead an hour and I figure if I get up a half-hour earlier today, and a half-hour earlier tomorrow, by Monday I'll be on the right time. Or some... Read more
No sooner did I post the previous blog and get up from the computer to start my day than the phone rang. It was the woman from the agency who had called yesterday. She was apologetic, polite, and very understanding. I didn't have to get ratty (f... Read more
