We all have regrets, mine being buying that pink balaclava at aged 8. Friends are hard to come by when you wear a pink balaclava to school, come rain or shine. But I'm glad I'm not the only one with regrets, there's in fact a whole site full of them. Maybe not as harrowing as my wardrobe faux pas but not much is.

I had a weird dream

I had a weird dream last night. From what I remember of it I was watching TV in my house which happened to be Buckingham Palace (hey, I like this dream) when all these little animals scared me away into a forest. Of course, Mulder and Scully were straight on the case and gave me directions on where to go to avoid the velociraptors that were now running after me. I was ok up unti the T-Rex showed up and starting crushing family members, that wasn't too pleasing. The dream ended with Anil inviting me to hide with him in a hollowed out log. What does all this interpret to? I need to stop watching X-Files, reading about dinosaurs and wanting to live in the palace. Oh and of course stop hiding in logs with Anil.

I found this rather interesting site today after following a link saying "Q & As" but there are no answers only tonnes and tonnes of rather interesting (sometimes downright stupid) questions.

Examples:
1)If 'GH' stands for 'P' as in 'Hiccough' and if 'OUGH' stands for 'O' as in 'Dough' and if 'PHTH' stands for 'T' as in 'Phthisis' and if 'EIGH' stands for 'A' as in 'Neighbour' and if 'TTE' stands for 'T' as in 'Gazette' and if 'EAU' stands for 'O' as in 'Plateau' then wouldn't the right way to spell 'POTATO' be 'GHOUGHPHTHEIGHTTEEAU'?
2)Isn't airplane travel just nature's way of making you look like your passport photo?
3)People say they need to have clean underwear in case they're in an accident. If you're in an accident how long do you think your underwear is going to stay clean?
4)Isn't it true that the man who says his wife can't take a joke forgets that she took him?

Some people have way too much time on their hands, don't you think?

Talking of Italy and I know I've mentioned this before (a pachillion times) but what does my name mean over there?

I love semolina. Mmm mmm. But I do remember a time in junior school when my feelings about that great pudding were quite the opposite. At that time the whole Edwina Currie and salmonella thing was rife in the news. Being a kid I was greatly confused between semolina and that horrible disease. Imagine my horror when they had it on the school dinner's menu. I was convinced the dinner ladies were up to something but then again who could blame me? Those white coats, the nets in their hair and that horrid cabbagey smell. And anyone who forces you to eat cheese flan is evil in my book. Thankfully the confusion was cleared up and I can enjoy semolina once again. Mmm mmm.
