The good, the bad and the ugly

The Good

I made the final 7 in this month’s Blogging for Books. I am so happy! I was really pleased with my entry. The others are very good though. Go and read them!

The Bad

I am still unable to type properly (one handed is doing my head in). I have a doctor’s appointment to get my arm / wrist checked out this afternoon.

It is mole removal afternoon too. Just before the doctors. Fun afternoon for me!

The Ugly

The alarm going off and me having to get out of bed before 7am this morning after 10 lovely days off.

I hope normal service will be resumed soon people. Hope you all had a good Easter.

    Congrats on placing 7th. Sorry for the pain and as much as I would like to say I feel bad about you getting up, I can’t because I have been doing it for a long time. However, I’ll be leaving on Saturday for Germany.

    hey, at least you had a good bit to the day, i just had the bad and the ugly!

    hope your afternoon wasn’t too stressful and you’re on the mend now.

    booze is always a good cure otherwise…

    Congrats on the 7th! 🙂

    Yeah…hopefully your membership in the crippled arm club as Kate calls it — is temporary.. Hope it’s just a strain…

    I have mild carpal tunnel syndrome (have since 1993) and have to really watch what I do…never had surgery–control it with workstation modification, and physical therapy and special keyboard…it sux!

    The good, the bad and the ugly…

    July 25, 2005

    I have no idea where to even start writing about this weekend. It is all a bit difficult. So much happened and it was all a bit much really. The high amount of alcohol consumed by all really didn’t help matters.

    The good…

    Friday night when everyone turned up.
    The couple of quiet drinks in the pub Friday night.
    Seeing everyone.
    Seeing Jon.
    My monthly lunch with the girls (and Matt).
    The penguin ice cube tray Zodo gave me for my birthday.
    Getting to open presents / cards early.
    The music they played at the club.
    The way Matt and I found everyone on Saturday night.
    The fact that they all loved the club.
    Having a proper heart to heart with Claire and getting to the bottom of things.
    The taste of mead.
    Pasties and fry ups.

    The bad…

    Having the piss taken out of me by Nat for ages about Jon (like that is so old now.)
    The way that made me and Jon feel really akward being together which kinda spoiled Friday night.
    Not being able to find a single thing to buy to wear for Saturday night.
    Nat inviting all her friends to Tez’s birthday night out and not telling them it was for my birthday too.
    Overhearing Nat telling them it was my birthday as well (embarrassing).
    The fact that they then didn’t even bother to wish me a happy birthday.
    The fact that I care that Tez got all the attention.
    Too much booze.
    Being horrible to Matt about why he was there when I should have just been happy that he was there.

    The ugly…

    Getting upset in the club.
    Crying for a few hours when I got home.
    Throwing a strop and snapping at Jon when none of it is his fault.
    Managing to come home with at least 3 of my friends not talking to me.
    The fact my phone stopped working yesterday so everyone thought I was sulking / ignorning them and I was sat there thinking all my friends hated me.

    How I felt when I spoke to Nat and said I was gutted that we hadn’t spoken so far that weekend and that this was our only chance and she walked away and went and sat with someone else.

    Finishing a bottle of mead between myself and Claire when we got home.

    What better way to recover from a bad weekend then answering questions from strangers….

    1. If you could star in any one movie or TV show as the lead role, what would it be and why?

    2. What annoys you about your best friend?

    3. What inspires you?

    4. How do you imagine you will die?

    5. Why did you start blogging? What keeps you blogging?
