I swear, some people should be tested for intelligence before they're unleashed on the rest of us poor unsuspecting netizens. It's not often I am bored shitless by a troll, they usually manage to keep me amused for a while, but I'm just about asleep on my keyboard, I'm even scrolling past their posts. Pretty sad state of affairs, I reckon.

On another note, why don't we have militiary schools here? My latest threat to duct tape the brat to the wall and throw darts at her, had her laughing hysterically. No, she didn't clean her bears den room. It looks like I'm going to have don hazmat gear and do it myself. Can you believe a 10 yr old boy keeps his room cleaner than a 16 yr old girl?

Nite all, I'm off to sleep.

Sorry, I feel extra tired and unsociable today.

I did get a new wireless mouse yesterday and it flies across the monitor. In fact it moves so quick, I'm sure it's getting to Fiji before my brain catches up and I keep accidentally rolling over those stupid PITA ads on news sites that then flip up obscuring the story you want to read. Sure, it's a simple click to close them, but have you noticed they are putting the *skip* text link in obscure corners in very tiny text. Arrrrrghhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Not to mention that the instant *musack* at any cost race is back on for many websites & is leaching over into blogs? *sigh* Who made that the retro fashion again for websites/blogs? along with yet more flashy doodads. Geeeeeezzzzzz.

Not sweet enough

This is interesting research at the links below, I thought some people might be interested in the first link as much as I am. The second while not encouraging personally for me as such [heart disease as well as PA???] may lead to drug treatments with less side effects than the curent one's or a cure. Or possibly a quicker diagnosis, it took them 7 years to work out what was wrong with me.

A little sugar can help reduce chronic pain. No, this isn't the sugar you'll find in ice cream or soda pop, but it does have a sweet effect on pain conditions like fibromyalgia.

The results from the five-year study suggest that cardiovascular disease is associated with abnormal blood cholesterol levels from the outset, suggesting a genetic link between the diseases. This discovery may be the key to genetic profiling for psoriasis. Profiling could be an essential tool for finding innovative, more targeted forms of diagnosis and treatment for the 125 million people around the globe who live with the misery of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.

bunyip potentates and string

I thought people were supposed to move more slowly as they got older, not bloody run around like the energiser bunny. Geez! My Dad has been dragging me from pillar to post trying find an Atari for my Mum. Don't ask *roll eyes* My parents are weird, always have been, always will be.

Speaking of weird, the running of the bulls [school pick up time] was so damn funny today. Some guy screaming at another over mobile phone use. Little kids all around, some swearing and a finger gesture or two and WW3 broke out. I actually thought they were going to punch each other, or drop dead from heart attacks, both were so incensed at the other. Apart from that, we had the usual 90 degree angle parkers and strangely one who parked perfectly on the cricket pitch as if it was his own personal marked space far away from the mere mortals in the back lot. ROFL

The MOTH is snoring on the couch watching Gridiron, so I think that's my cue to wander off to sleep.

Ooroo cobbers!

whine with cheese

I just paid for the dental stuff happening next month. So, all up, my Out of pocket payment is nearly $1700-

Mia [child formerly known as BQ2 & not her real name] is flouncing around the house giving me the furrowed brow look, I keep expecting her to fling her hand to her brow a la old silent movies but so far she has resisted. I'm not helping as I keep smiling at her and asking if she'd like some cheese. Bad Mummy!

Yoda [ errr, no, not his real name either] was great on stage last night, didn't forget a single line. Although, the hook on the fishing line got stuck in the wooden wall, which was pretty funny. A lot of parents turned up as well, so the kids were rapt.

Ohhhhhh, I nearly died of embarassment today, as you know my Dad is visiting. I have the new Robbie Williams cd in the car, I turned it up slightly to hear it better *g* Yeah, I know. Anyway, the cd started playing at Your Gay Friend, but the reaction time was a fraction delayed before I started hitting random buttons in a panic trying to change the song or turn the damn thing off. Dad just looked at me and started laughing. I think my face is still burning.

Well, let's see, what else? Oh, the HS graduates down the road had a party last night and the cops were called. How do I know? heh. I almost inhaled my icecream cone when the cop car came flying up beside us with it's lights on, no siren though, scared the daylights out of me. So, must have been bad kiddies as one had handcuffs on and required the presence of 2 paddy wagons, 1 pursuit car and a patrol car. We woke up this morning to shopping trolleys hung on all the street signs. And in some weird ritual, crime scene tape hung from trolleys arranged in a circle with an upturned trolley in the middle of the supermarket carpark. Huh?

Oroo cobbers, Avagoodweegend!

I am a numpty,

Not really, I just play one on the Internets! LOL
So sorry to be ignorant and not update, I have been busy having a minor meltdown, being harassed via email [ 36 virus attachments until I closed the email address] and errrr, various other sundry distractions.
Oh yeah, My Dad is here for a fortnight. I am the child most like him in personality, or, in other words, I argue back. So far, so good, but give it another day or so LOL
Yoda has a school play tonight, so comes home and announces I have to go down to the shops and buy him stuff to make him smell nice *g* then he choked on his chockie frog and upchucked all over me! So, I also bought some stuff to make me smell nice as eau de choc frog is not quite my favourite fragrance.
Well, if anyone wants a Christmas Card from me, email me at antikva at gmail dot com and let me know.

Ciao mateys!

the shrinking woman.

Oh bugger! I've shrunk, I'm only 5'2. I used to be 5'3, I'm positive. How the hell did that happen?
I've always been the shortest in my family, but this is ridiculous.

Being the big chicken that I have become, I have opted for the dentist to do everything under a general, he's also replacing old fillings, putting on the crown and a scale and clean. Then I only have to have a clean every 6 mths. He's replacing all the amalgam fillings with the white stuff just in case they're leaching into my system and making my PA worse. I don't know if that's true, but the fillings all need replacing anyway, so who cares? It's worth a shot LOL

So, I've decided to have 2 months off work from then, aren't I slack? ROFL, I'll still be painting, but won't have to stress over meeting deadlines etc and can just go with the artistic flow.

Read books, watch cricket, go to the beach and take the kids to exciting places like the Art gallery and the Zoo, I love their twilight program. I'll be able to just chill and not have to because I'm sick. YAY!

I love this sort of art. Yes, I found all 11 in the last pic, do I get a lollipop now?
