Saoutchik, just sit there tomorrow and wait for it.

Rolling right along. I'm bored of being bored at work. Honestly. It's hard trying to look busy when you're not. I think I'll work on improving my situation.

I sneaked out of work to watch Djokovic Nadal only to find they were showing Murray Ferrer. Are we really such one eyed jacks in this country?

Stanley Unwin was the publisher of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. He thought it might sell a few thousand copies so he gave JRR Tolkien a very small advance but a good commission percentage. Cost Unwins a lot but they still did well out of it.

Cheers Zab

Hope people enjoyed the Hump day anthem from Sheffield legend John Shuttleworth

hm. Decided against my post.

Probably not good to name names of people in government and tie them to past illegal drug activities..

Hey BB, but even we know in SA that George W was an alcoholic - I think it was in the papers years ago.

I know of a couple of the US guys that were pot smokers etc in their time. Don't know any that were dealers.

Hi guys. I'm just putting it out there that I'm having a rough day. Feeling old and small and tired. Forgot that I have a dental appointment today but I'll be there. Hair appointment tomorrow. That will cheer me some. Maybe I'll go dig in my garden before the dentist. Though that's playing hooky from work. Mental health time. I need it.

Ruby, just don't get your hair cut at the dentist.





This too shall pass, beautiful spirit.

The legal drugs industry makes plenty of donations to politicians as it is (in UK)

Ruby, or don't dig a hole in your garden for the dentist.

Hope your day gets better.

((Ruby))....go dig and forget work this afternoon! Getting outside always helps my mood improve. What are you getting done to your hair tomorrow? I need some inspiration....I've got hair almost to my waist with long layers but I feel the need for something new.

And I totally forgot it was hump day.....I usually rely on Brains thread to remind me.

No haircuts at the dentist! I promise! And I'm just removing weeds in my horribly overgrown garden and yard. Maybe I'll muster some energy to plant this year. Just not feeling it
