Marian and I awoke this morn to find it had been raining and was threatening to do so again. Whoo hoo – no painting today. The local and fairly accurate forecast said 20 degrees C by 1300hrs – and guess what – it was spot on.
Reverse the no-painting decision.
Well at least we (yes, Marian helped) finished the solarium and did a little bit down the stairs. I’m so glad as I seemed to have been up there for months. I hope to see more progress now.
Marian has to go to shopping for shoes tomorrow for Sarah’s wedding. Sarah Kavanagh’s wedding will certainly be Ireland’s if not Europe’s wedding-of-the-year. I think WWII took less planning. Jean Jean the Drama Queen hasn’t slept or thought of anything else since the date was announced. If you’re reading Jean – I’m only joking – if you’re not reading – it’s true.
I got a couple of weird Facebook messages this morning from a female friend – something about her ex stalking her. It turns out it was a hoax. Why do people do this sort of thing the Juan Kerrs. Talking about hoaxes…
We’ve all received e-mails saying things like “Whatever you do – do not open an e-mail from Imaserialkillerme@dotcom.com.coe.youkay and if you open an e-mail from me, I will come and murder you in your beds and then corrupt your hard drive and you will have to buy a new computer, fridge, washing-machine and telly even though you’re dead. Well – I received one of these months back and dutifully passed it on to everybody I knew – ha, I didn’t want a red-hot poker shoved up my arse. One of the recipients of this e-mail was my clever-dicky smart-arse son who took great pleasure in telling me it was a hoax – thereby making me feel like a foolish old-man who had no right to even own a computer. So – now when I receive one of these “do not open…” things I Google it first – adding hoax to the end of the title. Seemples.
I can then send it back to the sender saying – “You’re stupid you…”. The moral of this tale is something or other, I’m sure.
It’s still very pleasant out so I’m taking my bitch for a walk. Keep smiling.
