Yay for me!

I finally did it! Yes, I matched Steve Tomkins’ score of 185 in Word Twist on Facebook, and am now joint first on my friends’ ladder. Oh frabjous day!

Secondly, is it just me, or does anyone else ever listen to Cream’s ‘Tales of Brave Ulysses’ and when it gets to the line ‘Her name is Aphrodite’, feel an uncontrollable urge to sing ‘And she wears a flannel nightie’? No? Just me, then.

Thirdly, the daily headache has shifted to the other side of my head. I am not sure this is an improvement.

An affirmation

The other day I heard from a Facebook friend who had met someone who remembered me from a long-ago women’s weekend in Bruges (when apparently, I was very sick on the Channel crossing to Zeebrugge). Any road, as they say in the Midlands where I come from, this friend of a friend remarked that I was a ‘real character’. I can’t help feeling flattered by that; it has long been my ambition to be eccentric, and now it seems I already was 25 years ago, without even trying. Nice.

Parliamentary expenses – the last word

Heard on Radio 4 (no less) the other day: ‘The MPS have milked the gravy train to the hilt’. Quite.

And now for more profuse apologies: If you are wondering why I haven’t blogged for weeks, blame it all on Facebook, the second biggest timewaster in history (decide for yourself what the first is…). I also had Bible notes to write on Proverbs, and half-term in the middle of them, so not much blogging time. But FB is the biggest culprit.

Must try harder, as the school report said…
