Yeah, that's what I like about her little slip.

I'm not so sure about the 'slip' bit.  I read faucets straight up and thought, "yes what a great image".

The beauty is that either way it still works ;-)

My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

I'm not sure wether this should be here or on most embarrising moments.

last night I was alone down stairs the children in bed and I thought I heard a noise out in the back garden. The cats were both in and then the dog perked his ears up so i decided to go have a look. (The dog wouldn't come with me. Coward.) I crept into the kitchen keeping low so as not to be seen through the window as I hadn't closed the blind and the light was on.
Kneeling on the floor by the sink I slowly stood up and nearly s**t myself to find someone stareing right back at me, then I realised it was my reflection.

;D I know that feeling, Charlie! In the warehouse office where I work, in one wall is a window looking out on to the warehouse. Next to this is a mirror, and then the door. I've lost count of the number of times I've stopped as I was leaving, to wait for the person I saw through the 'window' to come in...
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to
skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - open throttle in the other -
body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming : "Woo Hoo, what
a ride!"

You're obviously a very polite guy, DC. :)

I just sent myself a PM message. When I saw the subject heading I said, Oh, that's a quick response.

Allie, you know the old saying: it's only if you start to answer yourself that you need to worry...! ;D

ps: (Glad I'm not the only one to have done that...) ::)

At least you're getting some messages, even if they are from yourself. Some people get none.

True, Lina, I shouldn't complain. And they're good messages, which is even better, even if they were meant for someone else.  ;D

At least you'll agree with them. No arguments. I'll have to send myself some. ;D

Good idea, we'll start a trend. We could even start a special thread for personal messages to ourselves for others to comment on. :)

There's something confessorial about this place. Now you don't have to worry about doing something stupid, you just come on here and confess it and away you go with a clear mind, ready to wield your IQ in the world again. :)

OK get this; I have a few tabs open in my browser one is the thread for "Ruapehu" and Leigh has asked about the legend.  So I go and Google "Ruapehu" + "Ledgend" to find the text.  I start clicking through the list, get to one link and my Ruapehu poem comes to the front.  I go back to the Google listing and try again.  Dam browser brings up my poem again.  Bloody thing.  What's wrong with it?

Then I check the Google link: it's to the MWC page with my poem on it.  (hits head with palm).
If I always do what I always did, I'll always get what I always got.
