I have the lurgy  
The cold that's been threatening since Asylum has kicked in, I spent all day yesterday going from bed to the throw-covered couch to bed again. It was a really pretty day yesterday and I was supposed to be spending some time with the kids in their garden - which I love doing. When else can a *mumblemumble* year old get to play swing ball without a) being drunk; or, b) looking like an idiot?

But alas, I was left snuffling and coughing and generally feeling like death warmed up.

Babysat for them on Saturday though - eventually finding out at 5 that I was needed at 6 (and could I stop and buy some things for dinner on my way up the road...). My sister's an hilarious drunk. She doesn't go out a lot anymore, and she's not been drunk for years. She can't handle her drink any more. It's hilarious. Oh, and apparently my brother in law doesn't understand how I could have staffed at the convention because he just doesn't see me as anything other than Sis' quiet little sister. And that's my problem how? (That's not completely true actually, he sees me as having an impressive cleavage as well - to the extent where I don't wear v-necks when I go to their house any more.)

I couldn't get online on Saturday at all so I've had to default on my spring_with_xan day, which sucks. Thanks though for your prompts on Friday - I'll be having a go at them soon in an attempt to make up for it!

Right, I'm aware right now that I'm snappy and irritable and finding the little things annoying so I'm going to go have a cup of tea and actually do some work.

eta work rant I will be the only supervisor in on Wednesday and Thursday.

Wednesday is apparently because one of the other women has child care difficulties and the other is on some course somewhere in England. (Which would be believable if I hadn't heard the child care woman having a loud personal phone call in which she said "Well I'll just tell them I can't get child care then...")

Thursday? There's no excuse. Child care woman doesn't work Thursdays and the other one still decided that it would be fine for her to take leave that day. So... wenchpixie? I'll have to be in work by nine all week this week. Balls.

Also? Coriander tastes like soap. Marks & Sparks? If you put it in a chicken salad I will be able to taste it, so why don't you put it on the damn label so I don't buy it? (Coriander is silantro, btw, I'm spelling that phonetically 'cause I've never seen it written down, what with living on the civilised side of the Atlantic... *g* - Cilantro - thanks geminilove_ca!)

thank you sweetie - hopefully this'll clear up soon, the weather being all insane isn't helping much to be honest.

Get well soon. I woke up this morning thinking winter had come back again.

What is up with this weather? The sun was splitting the trees yesterday and today feels like we're in Siberia...

Please don't be broked, I don't like you being broked *snugs*

Glad you got to spend some time with the kids, anyway!

Have many many cups of tea :)

It's all those crazy fangirls the other weekend, they gave me the lurgy. *g*

Had an absolute ball with the kids on Saturday - sis was all worried I wouldn't be able to get them to go to bed but one story and they were out for the count and I got to watch Bring It On again...

My brother in law... oh don't get me started on him. He's kinda the main reason me and my sister don't get along so well any more...

You! You! It's all your fault! You are Patient 0!!!

Just kidding...

*snuggles you*

It might have something to do with the insanity that has been the last couple of weeks maybe?

Yuck for being sick.

Psstt... it's cilantro. And the leaves and the seed taste different, even though it's the same plant. Wierd huh?

Wouldn't put it in chicken salad myself, unless maybe I was making a Thai version. Odd.
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: music//kane cheers - mewhiskyinmind on May 19th, 2008 03:32 pm (UTC)
Aha! Wasn't too far off then! I love Thai food even though I don't like coconut or coriander/cilantro but anything else? I can taste the soapyness and it just makes me feel ill!

*cuddles you*

Also Megabus sucking out loud. I'm working till 5.30 (or at least I'm staying in the office till then... *g*) Can I pick anything up on the way up the road?

Typical, I go down south for a long weekend and the sun comes out up here *g*

Being ill sucks *snugs* hope it doesn't linger too long and you feel loads better soon!

Your work and work colleagues are very annoying and stupid
*sporks*

:( soapy tasting food is just bad, I always hate surprise ingredients in my food, especially ones I want to avoid.
