Am I sad?

Postby Bubbles » Mon, 03 Apr 2006 7:45 pm

Do you know, I spend more time on this forum, and thinking about what is happening on it, that I spend doing my work.

Now, if only they'd pay me for the hours I fritter away here, I'd be rich.

Am I sad?

More to the point, are we all mad?

Were we all chatterboxes at school? I was, and this is my grown-up version of same.

That's my excuse, anyway.

Beautiful day here, sunny, scudding cotton wool clouds, daffodils out, nice wind, clothes drying on the line.....lawn cut (applause for Bubbs, she did stripes on it)....and Spring really has come.

I'll button it, shall I? :D

I was a quiet, polite, respecting student back in school *looks around for Vaucluse*

Puberty transformed me into a fan of spandex big haired bands.

Adulthood mellowed me into a soul, blues and....

...occasionally beer drinking man.

As for Bubbles - I fear you are right - at the end of the day I am left feeling that I should have worked much harder - it was ok when I was employed and had staff that would cover my arse, but now I run my own show . . . Darn, darn, darn!

Not surprising, I was always a chatterbox and voted 'Most Mischievious'.

I just fell off my chair laughing at the thought of getting an award like that.....Oh Tiki, I'm from a Godless part of the world obviously.....my award was for playing the recorder (Morning has Broken, for you lot who obviously haven't got my skills...lol)

Did you go through a deep grunge phrase then Tiki? Sort of a chuck it in their faces period?

I love awards......

Who got a swimming award....Hey, and which badges did you get at scouts or guides....

Going to think about this and then up in the attic to get my badge box out. (No, joking, but wish I'd kept them)

Deep Grunge? I guess trying to figure out what the bands were singing qualifies that.

Chuck in the face....

mine was more like barf.

I don't have scouts badges to boast about, some guides badges yes...

I was a young version of a ladiesman.. a girlieboy ( now that didn't sound right ).

I do have some scars I reckon from playground fights.

Before you jump on me and say-" I thought you were a goody two shoes?",

let me clarify that the playground was outside of the school compound.

In school I was a saint.

One of my favourite teacher who was a sweet little nun always tell me-

"Turn the other cheek tiki. Turn the other cheek."

She now sings in a Spice Girls cover band touring bars around Vietnam.

Mr. Bailey was thrown out of his catholic school for punching a nun in the stomach. I believe her name was Sister Patricia. Sweet and little are not two words that would come to mind when describing Sister Patricia.
