More confusion and comedy

Mrs Blog has had a bad day so far.

Earlier this morning she enquired of the Greek musical instrument ...the Bazubi

...and then served a comedy bacon roll to BigTomBlog. The comedy was that it contained no bacon!!

Last night I found myself confused. The cause was a conversation with Mrs Blog that began with...

"Do you remember that Japanese restaurant in Brighton that you never went to?"

Cream Problems

Hot on the heels of my pill problems comes a problem with creams.

I was eaten alive this week by either,

  1. Mosquitoes or,
  2. Fleas or 
  3. Both
I would not normally bother but the itching was driving me to distraction so I reached for the bite cream. Usually this lessens the itch within a day. However two days later things were no better.

I reached for the cream again. This time with my glasses on.

What I thought was cortysol cream, that i had liberally spread over my dozen bite, wasn cortysol.

It was a cream for athlete's foot.

Pill problems

Unusually for me I just read the patient information on my pills. Apparently you are not supposed to take Co Drydamol if you are in a coma!!!!

Flour Power

After a prolonged spell of inactivity I am back!

Today saw me trying to make a loaf of bread. As per usual I reached for the bag of flour in the cupboard above me...and that is when things went wrong.

A sneaky bag of gram flour was in the way. I grabbed it, just a little too eagerly. two seconds later I looked like a polar bear. The flour had leaped out of the bag. all over my shirt, trousers, shoes, arm, neck and the floor, diary, bin, Mrs Blog's water bottle and sideboard.

A few curses later I grabbed the vacuum and hoovered up the worst of it. I mopped and wiped the residual evidence and congratulated myself for not smashing anything a fit of temper.

I picked up the vacuum to put it back where Mrs Blog likes to keep it but...

...it opened itself and tipped all the bloody flour back on the floor again. :-)

The sound of silence

For some time I have been planning a podcast on investment. After countless rehearsals I decided to go for it and spend the morning recording.

The sound absorbing panels were in place, the mike was on and the system up and running. From experience I knew that a single recording that could be edited, would be easier and less time consuming than trying to record a perfect episode.

I was wrong.

Two hours of recording this morning yielded not a single second of usable material. Was it the enormity of the task? Overly high expectations on my part?

No. I failed to select the correct sound input - the equivalent of not plugging in the microphone.

Best food for the post-apocalyptic world

Have you ever wondered what the best food is for the post-apocalypse?

It would, ideally, have the longest possible shelf-life. My thoughts had gone no further than tinned goods... until last week. Mrs Blog found a food that makes tins obsolete. What is it?

Beef Jerky!

She read out the sell by date - 2071! A full 52 years.

My ears pricked up. I took the packet and read.

Back to tins I'm afraid. The product code and the date are not the same thing. 😕
