    Morning all, happy Thursday!

    My stomach is turning here – the woman sitting opposite me on the train has spent the entire journey rooting around in her nostrils slowly and thoughtfully and thoroughly and then making breakfast of the yield.

  • hockeysticks says:

    lynnieee …… gggrrrrooooosssssss!

    the man in front of me on tuesday on the bus smelled of dog, really strongly. thankfully he got up and left after two stops … public transport is dodgy like that!

  • xgirl says:

  • Ruth says:

  • hockeysticks says:

  • Bunnybun says:

    Hockeysticks, I hear ya, am so tired. Wake up every morning excited by the thought of getting back into bed the next night…. am just exhausted! Putting it doen to getting over my illness of last week though.

  • Tiddles says:

    Hockeysticks – absolutely. Was so exhausted last night – had an early night and the best sleep ever – but still am tired now. It’s awful.

    Morning all!

  • Bunnybun says:

    Ok, you have most likely all seen this already as its doing the rounds, but I think its great and so apt for this miserable month, so here goes:

    Twas the month after Christmas,
    and all through the house,
    Nothing would fit me,
    not even a blouse.

    The cookies I’d nibbled,
    the chocolate I’d taste
    At the holiday parties
    had gone to my waist.

    When I got on the scales
    there arose such a number!
    When I walked to the store
    (less a walk than a lumber),

    I’d remember the marvellous meals I’d prepared;
    The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,
    The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
    And the way I’d never said, “No thank you, please.”

    As I dressed myself in my husband’s old shirt
    And prepared once again to do battle with dirt…
    I said to myself, as I only can,
    “You can’t spend a winter, disguised as a man!”

    So, away with the last of the sour cream dip.
    Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip.
    Every last bit of food that I like must be banished
    Till all the additional ounces have vanished.

    I won’t have a cookie, not even a lick.
    I’ll want only to chew on a long celery stick.
    I won’t have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie.
    I’ll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.

    I’m hungry, I’m lonesome, and life is a bore…
    But isn’t that what January is for?
    Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
    Happy New Year to all, and to all a good diet.

  • Hello everybody!
    Bunny, very good your poem!
    Today is grey and dull but I have a dinner this evening with a friend from Manchester.
    Have a nice day!

  • tina says:

    Bunnybun – :D never seen that before! too true :D

    OK, there was a guy in my yoga class yesterday, who reminded me of this classic james nesbitt clip: So funny :)

  • Morning all! Galway isn’t wet today thank god! Having my first cup of tea now…anyone else counting the minutes to payday?

  • Tiddles says:

    LMW – don’t even TALK to me about payday! I’m almost out of money already and don’t get paid til 29th! Sliiiiiightly panicking! :p

  • Almost tiddles? I have enough for the bus tomorrow, and then I’m walking all next week…B R O K E

  • Tiddles says:

    I’m with ya! I meant almost as in – i thankfully have a dart pass for this week…but have no money for the next two weeks passes! Have enough food in cupboards to last me a week…but after that i’m screwed! HATE money.

  • Glitterkitty says:

    the radio is on sometimes in this office.. yest on joe duffy they were talking about guys watching porn on their laptops.. while on various commuter trains

    apart from no one sprayed into the same 4 little seats.. would ye not be mortified knowing that the stranger pressed up against you only thinks one thing of you – perv!!
    jeez.. porn on the train to work?

    n app iarnrod eireann can’t do anything as it’s not illegal!

  • Efa says:

    That poem is sadly too true… My blouses are really tight since xmas……. I too am still exhausted every morning getting up and i’m not paid until the 30th! I was supposed to put away the credit card but I need it to tie me over until payday. Then I can pay it off again… Its a bad cycle that I need to get out of altho insurance was the big thing this month which I wont have til next year!!
