Here's the thing...

Image from here
1. Charlie Sheen is a dick.
2. According to the SMH at the weekend, Princess Mary and Prince Fred have 4 nannies and 16 household staff to manage their lives. No wonder I am so bloody tired!
3. Changing banks is not an easy task. You stay because it is too hard to change even though they suck and they steal your money charge you millions of dollars in fees a year.
4. Black Swan is psycho.
5. Those last few kilos really are harder to shift than the whole 13 kilos before them.
6. Buying nothing new for a year gets more complicated the longer you do it (not really a revelation that one).
7. The development of speech and language in two year old children seems to be proportional to the amount of times they wake at night; the more they develop, the more they wake*. I'm not sure it is worth the effort.
8. Even people you know extremely well can surprise you.
9. "Reply All" should be used sparingly in email correspondence.
10. Life looks good from a bicycle seat.

Do you have a thing today?

My thing today - when your phone dies, your pram will also experience 2 flat tyres, you will have arranged not to have a car for the day and you will therefore get NOTHING done...

Not sure if that is really what you meant but I needed to get that off my chest...!

Is Black Swan really that crazy? Have been wanting to see it - I quite like Natalie Portman

My thing today ... "You probably already know the right thing to do so just suck it up and do it!'

Mrs BC said...

Agree with all of these points although number 8 is making me wonder about the specifics.
Point number 6 - what has been the hardest challenge so far?

Have a great weekend :)

Having a cold and having to light the fire on a Friday night at the beginning of March. Then making plans for 28 degrees on Sunday...only in Melbourne!

Here's the thing - I have lost over 35kg. But I feel like I haven;t lost a kilo at all. It shits me.

But I have new winter jammies and they are a smaller size and they fit.

Take what you can....

Love it, Coo. It's like my 'things I learned this week' only better.

One of the things for me is that I enjoy hanging out with you more than pretty much anyone I know (barr LOML). x

Posie Patchwork said...

Oh so i shouldn't send my ballerina in high school off to see Black Swan then??
Reply to All, why does everyone on the P&C seem to like to use it when they are sending a message to say they can help at a BBQ for an hour as they are terribly busy (yes, funnily enough, busier than me with less children, an actual husband & no sport in their lives, only i'm running the BBQ & can make it). Argh!!
Wishing you more sleep soon, or 16 house staff?? Love Posie

Love it. Love them all.

Sandi said...

I LOVE number 1! That man is dick enough for all the rest!

Tat said...

Totally agree with #7. And they don't have to be two yet, and it doesn't have to be just speech.

Kymmie said...

I'm loving this! Yes, Charlie Sheen IS a dick. Couldn't agree more. And your other observations... truer than true. xx

We're singing from the same book. Great post.

Love this post! How have I only just found you? I'm your latest follower. Pop buy and see our Shamozal in Qatar some time.

I particularly like #9! I'm always included in the thousands of pointless emails going back and forth about cricket or AFL and it bores me to tears!

suburp said...

your no.1 is exactly what I texted my friend when I saw the first interview extracts on tv. then i laughed with most others. now it's absolutely driving me mad how this dick is getting soo much airtime and attention from the whole world when there are one or two more important things going on right now. damn.>:(

georgi hampton said...

number 1 got a giggle-snort from me. agreed! x

Lady Estrogen said...

OK - loved that list.
So funny.
I'm always surprised by people I know, but usually, it's never good.

Kellie said...

What on earth does Princess Mary do all day? I can't even persuade hubby to get me one housekeeper. :(

Daisy, Roo and Two said...

LOL great post! Charlie Sheen IS a dick and I am totally hearing you on the speech and language for two year olds being connected to sleep (or their lack thereof)!

Kelloggsville said...

4 nannies?! *sigh*

Life looks pretty good from a pair of running shoes too and my mother-in-law will never be my best friend!

cjtato said...

This is one of the best lists I've ever read! :D

A Farmer's Wife said...

Love it - I too have been surprised by people I have know for years.

And couldn't agree more about Mr Sheen, but then he has tiger blood...

Kate @ Puddles and Gumboots said...

Heehee great list! I just want one of Princess Mary's staff! My thing today is Blogger blogs that won't let me comment :-)

House of Prowse said...

Visiting you from the rewind. #9 in facebook - never reply in a multiple listed message! Aagh, the crap you get to say to / read from others when they think it is private!
