I'm sooo old

I decided to look for my high school in the LJ schools thing. When I looked at the other users that listed my school, every one of them was born AFTER I graduated. *sigh*

Gotta go buy my able-walker. (Speaking of which, my back is still killing me - if I had been using the able-walker, there's no way I would have been able to slam myself into that counter! *g*)

In other, happier news, I had a really good crop at my friend's place last night. There were only 4 peeps, but one is a bride-to-be, and decided to buy all the materials for her wedding albums from me! I really need to get back into having people over to workshop, I have a great time when I do....

Shades of Spinal Tap!

In the tradition of good drummers everywhere, Tommy Lee tried to blow himself up last night.


Think the reunion gods are trying to tell them something? First Mick's hip (he looked like a cross between Ozzy and Alice Cooper when I saw them play), then Vince Neil fell off the stage and tore a calf muscle last month and now this. Watch out Nikki, you're next!

A funny thing happened tonight...

smarties eh

As I was studying for my Critical Nationalism class hubby brought me home some chocolate. Smarties, mmm, with little maple leaves on them. Papineau is rolling over in his grave. Funny that the symbol of the St. Jean Baptiste society would become the national symbol for Canada. Nobody like the Brits to take a french symbol, then write a song about it, and include lyrics about them defeating the French! I'll now return to eating my chocolate.

EDIT:Traditional smarties come in all sorts of colours - red, blue, brown, pink, green, yellow and purple. Here is of their old advertising jingles, which I now have stuck in my head:

When you eat your Smarties,
Do you eat the red ones last?
Do you suck them very slowly,
Or crunch them very fast?
Eat that candy-coated chocolate,
But tell me when I ask,
When you eat your Smarties,
Do you eat the red ones last?
