- It's easy to break into my house... I forgot my keys but managed to rip the fly screens and slide open my bedroom door to climb in with ease... and NO-ONE saw anything!
- Sometimes it's better to just say No!... I took an order for a silver pendant, when really I should have admitted to the customer and myself that I am Just not ready yet.
- I am obsessed with food... my last 4 out of 5 blogs have had something to do with food or weight loss.

- Fish finger and potato waffle sandwiches (with tartar sauce)
- Jacket Potato with baked beans, ham and cheese (and real butter for an added bonus)
- Bangers and Mash, with Onion Gravy
by the way.. I'm not the only one who puts potato waffles in sandwiches. I found the proof!
Quirky Tuesday will have a different topic each week, to tell everyone about a quirk / ritual / obsession / routine about that subject. As little or as many as you like if you're playing along at home. (I sound like a game show host!). Readers can meme it on their own blogs or just comment on here. Don't forget to link!

1. Did you watch the Oscars last night? What did you think of them?
Didn't watch them, but I always hit the net to check out the frocks! My faves were Hilary Swank and Jessica Alba.
2. Have you ever called in sick to work when you weren't really sick? What did you spend the day doing instead?
Done it quite a few times actually, and I have twice as many excuses now as I can blame it on the boy being sick too. Can't actually think of anything special I did, usually spending time with T/L or catching up on chores or sleep!
3. In school did you ever have to serve detention? What for?
Don't think we had detention at my school... but I do remember getting into SERIOUS trouble for skipping school and forging my mums signature on the "sick note".
4. Have you ever had food poisoning? What did you eat that caused it?
Generally I have an iron stomach. I can't think of anything specific that I could pinpoint specifically to what I ate. If I drink too much alcohol I spew, but haven't done that for a long time either.
5. Do you have any tattoos? If not, would you ever consider getting one?
I have a tribal flower on the base of my spine, and I'd love to have another one too, but can't think of anywhere else to put it. I considered back of my neck, but think it's too visible.

MONICA: So, Mr. Rastatter, what exactly does this job entail? The ad wasn't too clear.
MR. RASTATTER: Mockolate.
MONICA: I'm sorry?
MR. RASTATTER: Mockolate. It's a completely synthetic chocolate substitute
MR. RASTATTER: Aren't you going to swallow that?
MONICA: Just waiting for it to stop bubbling
Can you believe I went on the Cadbury website and couldn't find the lite bar on their! Bizarro!
MR. RASTATTER: Our FDA approval didn't come through. Something about laboratory rats.
MONICA: Oh, gosh, I'm sorry.
MR. RASTATTER: Yeah, well, anyhoo, here is your check. Thank you for all the trouble you went through. Um, listen, you didn't eat a lot of it while you were cooking, did you?
MONICA: Well, uh, I ate some.
MR. RASTATTER: Oh, some, that's fine. Some is fine. Some is not a lot. So, it doesn't burn when you pee, does it?

1. What is your favorite electrified instrument?
I just lurve a good bass - especially one you can feel... one that makes your ribs hum! :)
2. What instrument do you think should be electrified that isn't?
What about some electric tubular bells? Hmmmmmmmmm
3. Name a song that just wouldn't be the same without electricity.

Bright cheerful songs like Ben Lee "I refuse to go Numb" Jack Johnson "Banana Pancakes" and Old Man River "Sunshine". Or if you need an energy boost then a bit of Meatloaf or My Chemical Romance should do the trick
2. Soups can be made from very diverse ingredients that somehow work well together. Name a band, duo, or any other combination that brings diverse people together into one great muscial soup.
Cat Empire bring a nice eclectic mix together and I reckon they would be the ultimate definition of "Musical Soup"
3a. Creamy soups are popular for use in many dishes. Cream was one of the best blues rock groups of the 60s. What song do you like better - "Sunshine Of Your Love" or "White Room"? Tell us why you like that song better than the other.
Sunshine of Your Love is probably my number one song EVER!!!! It has the best guitar riff, and the build up is intense... enough to get any orchestral juices flowing!
3b. If you don't like the band Cream, tell us what soup you think your favorite musician likes to eat.
Robbie Williams would probably be a Minestrone man, I reckon Lily Allen would dig into a bit of Laksa, whereas Madonna would be more of a Chicken Noodle Chick. Jack Johnson would be a wholesome country veg kinda guy. Mika would be cream of mushroom... cause he's a fun guy (funghi geddit!) ah, this is fun I could go on all day!

Here's an article about a book that seems to mirror my thoughts exactly.

I have this "friend". You can tell the problem straight away as I have felt the need for the inverted commas.
I met her about 18 months ago when she temped here at work. We got on really well and kept in touch after her temp job. Regular e-mail and messenger chats, and we got together few times socially. We even had the prospective partners meet each other.
She was having trouble with her husband and would often confide in me and ask for my opinion. Just before Christmas she bought a puppy. Then boxing day she finally left the husband. She moved to her parents. She asked if I could look after her puppy. No probs! Then she started an affair with her cousin from Italy. I met him, he was great, but didn't speak English. My partner speaks Italian so we all got together. Everything great.
She decided to move to Italy with him. I was very happy for her and encouraged her to follow her heart and take the plunge. I adopted her puppy.
Once she left for Italy I had 1 or 2 emails, that was about it.
4 months later I get e-mail to say she was coming home, and asking me advice about Visas etc.
Then I got an e-mail saying she was back in OZ and asking for more advice about visas. I gave her the info and suggested we catch up soon.
The I got a text at 10:30 at night with more questions. I replied promptly.
A week or so later I got an e-mail asking for a reference for a flat. No problemo... when are we catching up?
A month later I get a e-mail with her new mobile number. Thanks heaps... when are we catching up?
I get regular junk e-mails from her, occasional news.
A month or so ago an e-mail "hey how are ya" and photo of her new puppy... hmmmmm
Ok, you get the picture (wha! picture... that's an effing landscape!) She only contacts me when she wants something.. doesn't seem interested in catching up or doing other "friend" stuff. I'm kinda feeling this is a very one sided relationship here and decided it was best to cut the ties.
The dilemma is this (finally she gets to the point!) I got an e-mail yesterday. "Hey, How are you? Did you have a nice break? How is everyone? Kind Regards,"
Do I reply??????? Do I continue this charade... confront her about her relationship... ignore her???
(Jeez I wish I had a phone poll!) As soon as I work out how to do a web poll I'll post it!
