Amen, Tor! 

 

Self respect!

 

They might be difficult but there is no need to lower your standards.

Yep, keep the decent cheese for yourself and your husband!!!

 

Ok, so I said self respect but there IS nothing wrong with hiding the good nibblies until the offending relations have Foxtrot Oscared!  ;)

I think it was not about the cheese. I think he was showing his disdain for his SIL. Very difficult not to take personally. Obviously he is a wazzock. And hubby let it pass. All this in front of my daughter. :angry:

The Last Quarter Moon is exact early today when the Sun in Sagittarius forms a square with the Moon in Virgo. This phase of the Moon suggests a crisis of consciousness. 

 

There you have it :P

 

Either that or a glitch in the Matrix :D

Just filled in a 20 page formular in blue pen.

Start to read again from Page 1 to make sure I have not missed something and notice it says to fill out with a Black pen.

 

Durr :(

Transferred a four figure sum ( twice ) to different companies and both times, put the wrong kundenummer / rechnungsnummer. 10 phone calls later it is sorted but somehow I think I will keep away from online banking etc for the rest of the day.:wub:

 

Umm dohh

Yesterday, I ALMOST threw the white plastic cap from the milk container into the coffee machine instead of the similar looking white cleaning tab.

 

Close call.

Well, really a couple of days ago:

 

I almost didn't notice the box saying "fix a photo of you here" on my latest job application.

Having noticed a cut on my right elbow this morning, I found a sticking plaster and put it on...the other elbow! (didn´t get much sleep last night!! )

I congratulated myself on completing a large amount of house renovation / set up / declutter while apparently not injuring myself.

 

Then of course I reached into a cupboard and sliced the top of my thumb with a sharp blade (in a place I have spent a decade reaching for harmless food tins, and no longer heavily shielded by random toolbox clutter).

 

It's quite annoying because it's my strong hand and so not only really inconvenient (hard to grasp coins, open an envelope, tie laces etc) but of course I injure myself more from using my untrained weak hand - I now have a large scissor cut on the finger next to it from ineptly reapplying the dressing :lol:.  (Which you have to do because every touch risks it opening again).

@swimmer - if the cut's clean, sounds like it's time for a little Super Glue :)

 

And I've got to actually slow down and read a bit better  ... Oranienburger Straße ≠ Oranienstraße, and leads to all sorts of confused meanderings thru Berlin.

I had to do the faecal occult test.  Evident contender for doing something stupid.   I got an external container and a test tube with a lid that had a little spoon attached.  It came in a small carrier bag.  No instructions.  (I had previously always done a different one - the paper / needle / fluid one and, yes, clear instructions).  So I puzzled for a while and eventually the moment came.

 

Took it back today.  They were most upset as to the absence of the small carrier bag :lol:.     Well, where did they think I was going to spoon it from :wub:?  I also learned my poo is actually quite heavy.

You should have told them to be grateful that you spooned it out of the carrier bag and into the test tube, rather than handing them the full carrier bag!

Much more preferable, if you aren't forced to have a colonoscopy!

I could not imagine how to collect a sample from the brown in our toilet bowls.

I produce sinkers, obviously there are people around who produce swimmers, which would explain it.

 

PS

Colonoskopy is not that bad. The worst part was the fear before.

That did occur to me when they were getting stroppy: Are you seriously saying you want the bag back :blink:

 

That's when I knew I'd probably made a mistake - what do I do with this soiled empty bag now - but the damage was done by then.  (Answer - Disposed of very cautiously, like a radioactive nappy).

 

I did physiology in Uni and naturally we were often the guinea pigs in specialisms including GI.  Quite often had to do stool examination and ocasionally things like have a tube inserted via our noses through which specific nutrients could enter.  Happy days!
