*sniff* *grumble*

I have got a stupid british cold. Have had it since Thursday...was a bit fluey then...but now it's gone to the stage where I just can't sodding breathe...I'm all dry and bunged up.

Been dosed up on Lemsip mostly...but it doesn't seem to be working too well...really flipping irritating. I had to take Thursday and Friday night off work too...and miss out on overtime...something I really can't afford to do at the moment...but nobody would thank me if I went in and spread it about, would they James? *evil eye*

Ho hum. And I bet you were wondering (no, I suppose you weren't), where does she get all her free time to rattle on on her livejournal...answer: I don't. I'm just not a well girl at the moment.

*sniff*

Ok, I'll stop whining now, and post something 'interesting'...

This book scared me rigid as a child...

My sister got it from the library...

"Look, it has dogs in it!!"

So I read it, and had nightmares for years after...partic. the page where the man who has eaten the tail is in bed and the tailypo comes after him..."I want my Tailypo, I want my Tailypo!"...

...then there was a pic of the man/bed in a big flurry of cloth shreds everywhere...

*shudder*



Looking at Amazon...I see lots of people had a similar experience...

Had to do this with my real name, as I was played by a bloke otherwise...and that's simply not fitting for a woman of my standing!!

*snicker*

Googlisms for Death. Some of these are quite funny...

I've spent all afternoon watching Trigun...I'm halfway through the series now...

Googlisms for: death

death is sought
death is a debt
death is your art
death is only a dream
death is different
death is no bull
death is alive

death is in the air
death is the stranger
death is no obstacle
death is our physician
death is a salesman
death is my friend
death is it

death is like a car
death is a separation of two things
death is a dialogue between
death is not a painless transition
death is forever

death is but a part of the radio boor's act
death is that man taking names
death is not always the winner
death is latest ever recorded
death is mercy

death is certain
death is a silence
death is one too many
death is imminent
