Let's see, which would you prefer; being struck by lightning, or having a two year old vomit in your lap. Twice. I'm leaning toward the lightning.
Yes, we have sickies again. I'm sure it's got something to do with all the sand she's been eating, it can't be good for her, and I don't think it counts as fiber. So I was up a lot last night to the call of "Mummy, Mummy!" and there with a cuddle and comforting pat on the bottom. She's got a low fever too, but I can't get her to cool down, and she won't keep any meds down either. At least she's drinking this morning (and I want gin, please.), so I'm not going to worry yet. Just another one of those things. But why do kids always get sick near the weekend when the doctor's offices are closed?? Surely there's an ER nurse out there who thinks the same thing every Friday.
At least I got to watch the introductions for Big Brother 7, and already I don't like most of them, so it should be good viewing for the next three months. I'm a bit jealous of you Aussies though!! I hear you've got an attractive man who likes to shower in the nude, and he's not a fat bastard. I wonder if I can get live stream for that...Yah, ok I like big Brother, I'm not going to apologize for that. It'll keep me moderately entertained until Wimbeldon. And since I'm stuck watching endless kids shows; well no, I don't watch them I listen to them and avoid actual coherent alignment to said children's shows, so to get my own junk shit programming from BB is really nice.
Bonnie: What a twat. She has a weird accent and I think she's faking it to try and sound posh but sounds more like she has a serious headcold. Every time she introduced herself, she'd say "I'm Bonnah" to which she received "Bunny?" "Donna?" "Bono?" she's just not getting it right, and I hope once she forgets about the cameras she'll try and be her true self. If she even knows who that is.
Pete: He's an actor. Although he says he's an "unemplyed rock-n-roll singer/cartoonist" he's an actor. He came in acting like Lee Evans with Touretts, but not the swearing kind, more the yelping twitching kind. He even did a prat fall down the stairs before getting into the house. It's amazing how much he calmed down once he was in the house, he really looked exhausted.
Mikey: He's a model/software developer...yeah really. He's also a total over the top misogynist of the barefoot and pregnant class. I think it's all talk, so far, just to be outrageous. We'll see.
Lisa: My current favourite. She's an upholsterer who's very loud, hyper, silly and smokes a pack and a half a day. She's got a brilliant cheeky British accent and she's Chinese, so she's full of the quirk.
The others I'm too sure about yet. There's Shahbaz the token poof; he actually calls himself the "British-born Scottish Paki-Poof", and I wonder how many headlines and/or hate mail he'll get from other Muslims. He's tres camp, but I'm not sure about his sincerity. Shahbaz has been flirting with the other openly gay housemate, Richard, who calls himself a "Sexual Terrorist." (but all I saw was him running in terror from Shahbaz, clutching Lisa and begging "bodyguard, Bodyguard!" so I think we know who the *real* sexual terrorist is) and I now wonder if this is a thing with gay men, to have a tagline for themselves? There are assorted bimboes, and one angry black woman - who actually seems to be really nice and friendly for all her warnings that she doesn't want to make friends with anyone, ever. Sharing a small house with 13 strangers is ok though. I really hope it doesn't all suck.
So I'm tripping on my lip because I can't go to the gym today, and I'll have make due with a couple of TaeBo DVDs instead. Wash barf out of the laundry all that kind of boring domestic crap, and the kids are totally barred from going into my room now, I'm tired of finding sand in my bed!! Damned kids and sandy feet jumping on my bed. Oh, and you eager beaver folks who like to post up about who got voted off on American Idol, stop it! We don't get to see it until Fridays and you're ruining my fun! But wow, they voted off Elliott the elf!! Well, actually he's more of a taru taru.
Does anyone else feel they come across far more clever when they comment on someone else's blog, than when they post on their own? Ok, just me then.
My mantra for today is: I will not eat toast, I will not eat toast, I will not fucking eat anymore fucking toast!
