Sulking (UPDATED)

I am sulking because I wrote a really long post then accidentally deleted it, and then started again and accidentally deleted that as well.

Other things that have conspired to make this a rubbish day:

1. I left my phone at home.
2. I swallowed my chewing gum.

Fucksticks.

I will do the Friday's Feast when I am not so filled with anger and resentment, and when somebody has given me the Heimlich Manoeuvre.

Update: I have just found one of those pens with a lady on it, who is dressed if you hold the pen one way, but then if you tip it upside down her clothes come off and she's naked. Naked! Well, naked but for some very dubious eighties-style patent high heels. My day just got way, way better.

Look at it this way - at least you didn't leave your chewing gum at home and swallow your phone...

There is always a silver lining.

And there is always a naked lady pen lying around to make you happy.

I always feel so old when I hear people mocking the 80s, even good-naturedly. Shoulder pads, high heels, whatever. Many of the things people point out as being '80s' I don't even remember as being salient at the time.

It's just weird to hear someone talk about it as if it's gone, for some of us it's as if it were yesterday (well, not quite).

nostalgia friday, I think....

PS: I want a naked lady pen.

Swallowing gum - bad (see what kinds of horrid things can happen as a result of swallowing your gum http://www.iusedtobelieve.com/food/chewing_gum/chewing_gum_d5.php)

Naked lady pen - good

And the balance of good and evil is restored

Ant - That's true. On all counts.

Anon - I wasn't really mocking the eighties. There are definitely things that one associates with that era, though. Massive mobile phones, for example, or fluorescent clothing. Nostalgia is perhaps not extended to those things.

Pub - Thanks. Now I am well and truly petrified. In my office there was serious debate as to whether it was seven or ten years that the gum stays in you for. Someone else suggested I induce vomiting, but I think that was only to shut me up.

Wow. That is bad. I could do with one of those pens. I am too busy working to even do the feast today. Hell might have frozen over you know.

Good luck tomorrow!!!

well, I was the one being nostalgic. I think what I meant was, I don't remember many things of the 80s being ludicrous at the time, eg., massive cellphones, big hair. I mean, they just *were*. One could have those things and think, 'cool' (and who says 'cool'?). But now massive cellphones are a don joly joke. It's hard to imagine that one day, we will all look back and laugh at the annoying quiffs and that 'boho' look of the 00s.

I'm getting nostalgic about something that hasn't even passed yet. Time to go get myself that pen. I think

How can patent high heels be dubious? Surely they are still the sexy fashion they always were. I know when I wear them ... (scratch that I never where them I don't know who typed that)

Although I have never seen dubious eighties-style patent high heels on the ladies on those pens. it's entirely possible that I have been looking at the wrong bits.

Oh dear. Rubbish days all round!

Mine was rubbish because I was quite busy at work and didn't have much time to sit a surreptitiously (sp?) read blogs and comics on the internet!

Always good to know there's someone worse off.

Try and think of your swallowed gum as a friend always sitting in your stomach. I'm sure that being ever so slowly disolved in stomach acid is much worse than realising that you've accidentally swallowed something you shouldn't!

Don't worry, I smallowed thousands chewing gum and I'm still alive (;

Phone - why didn't you come back for it?

Naked lady pen - oh, you're lucky devil (; what was that pen?

Good luck today with the auditions. I am pretty sure you are already there in the line but thought I would send well wishes anyway.

I LOVE those pens! Wish I had one right now! But at least your day got better.

Funny how certain words stick out more than others.

For example, the work "naked" basically jumped off the screen at me. No injuries occurred, however.
