Ooh, looky … The Boredom of Holidays has struck again.  And it’s only Day One.  I snabbed this from Lyns.  It gave me something to do.  And looky again … I’ve livened it up with links.  Me so good.

God Bless Things That Stop Me Writing Year 10 Reports xxx Elsabeth


  1. you would think i’ve got something better to do… but, alas, i do not.
    what wish came true two years ago…? (unless it’s a secret) and what is the key to making said wishes come true?

  2. oh… and the deal with alkaseltzer and birds is that supposedly their stomachs explode when they eat alkaseltzer (something about not being able to burp). turns out that this is just an urban myth, so if you really want to kill them you need to resort to the old-fashioned feed ’em rat poison method. (i’m not a bird killer, though, i swear)

  3. hehehe…fun!  i love those!  must do those for me…don’t mind for stealing from ya  =P
    I would buy you a pink fuzzy monkey if i lived closer =)
    yeah…what is ‘ook’…is that like ‘eep!’  or what?  ;)  i swear, you need to put up a little guide for the non brits.  =P 

  4. I would buy you a pink fuzzy monkey if I could.  I’d love to have one for myself as well.
    It seems everyone is taking this survey.  I might have to break down and do it.
