To- Do List.

I am doing so well today.

1. Meet neighbour, exchange pleasantries.

2. Thank god for toddlers because you can always just goggle inanely at them for a couple of minutes instead of smiling inanely at their mum while you both wonder what you're supposed to say to each other.

3. Come inside and write down names before you forget, say them a few times because the letters don't match phonetically.

4. Be again confused by conflicting service advice from a potential ISP. Send emails.

5. Get date on shed door fitting.

6. Speak to ex.

7. Ponder the surrealness of it all.

8. Consider how much more dinner one ate the night before at one's sister's place than one's hosts did. Wonder if this is why one is the size of both of them combined plus their adorable son.

9. Knit and listen to the Stones at the same time.

10. Admire the depth of "Sympathy for the Devil". (It's the endless repetition of "woot" that does it.)

10. Wonder if one will ever hear the White Album by the Beatles.

11. Consider if "I've never heard the White Album you know" would work as a pick up line.

12. Figure that it would, with grubby old bastards in the liver failure unit.

13. Cream cheese and anchovies for lunch! With salada biscuits underneath of course.

Bring on the afternoon!

You are doing VERY well, and sounding so much better.

And a good pickup line is always useful.

Yah for being able to mark things off your list.

Whoa...that's a lot of stuff accomplished!
*hang head in shame*
I've been back for almost 2 days and have done literally nothing but laundry.
It's good to hear you sounding better.

I love crossing things off lists!

Should I ever be in need of a pick up line, even for target groups that haven't been on the list so far, I won't hesitate to turn to you.

That was just the morning? *bows down*

( I love when people have either pets or toddlers. Makes conversation so much easier.)

Cream cheese and anchovies! Now there's an idea. I was planning on getting some proper anchovies from the market deli next trip as it happens. The proper ones stored just stored in salt.

Did you know that you can melt a little oil, then literally melt a chopped anchovy? Go onto make a tomato sauce using the resulting oil. It adds an incredible depth of flavour for not much effort.

Wow, that was just the morning?

Wow, go you! That's a very impressive list.

You mean to say you've never heard "The White Album" in its entirely? Because you've had to have heard songs off the album many times over. (See? it's already worked as a pick up line for me, and honest, I"m not a grubby old bastard. Still. not using the right bait, maybe).

Hey wild! It works!

Maybe a t-shirt that says "tell me about the The White Album" is the way to go.

Lady Madonna is a great song. A while back (in the last little time with 10B) we were driving somewhere and I was listening to a great song that *also* sounded so much like the Beatles but I thought I knew them all...I was thinking props to the band for getting the sound so right but wondering about whether they were just being derivative or was this genuine creativity...yes I am a wanker sometimes...when 10B pointed out it was the bloody Beatles, it was from the White Album and what did I mean that I'd never heard the White Album before?

So as pick up lines go, I guess I didn't work on him but I now consider that a blessing.

But I must get a copy, because I liked whatever song it was that I heard. When something's as big as a Beatles song, it can be hard to know whether you really like it or whether it's just part of your world.

(Lady Madonna being one I've been familiar with all my life. I'm not sure which track I am referring to in my little anecdote.)

It would be interesting to see who besides me would fall for that line!

So many great tracks from The White Album--I'd love to know if you figure out what song it was you were digging.

Lady Madonna, btw, was only released as a single, and later in a Beatles compilation album.

WOW! Your list is way longer than mine!

The secret lies with the verbs you use.

Ponder, consider, admire, figure and thank**.

You can't go wrong.

**just keep your thanking to God, because that can be done without moving, or even sending a note.
