The great dash of cold – 308/366 (catch up)

What shocked me?

Electricity is the only thing that seems to consistently shock me. In terms of non-electrical shocks, I am not sure what my answer would be.

n.b on my attempt to catch up on this blog; I am 10 away from being right where I am supposed to be!  Big phew!

I have such a hard time liking this song…

it changes people – 307/366 (catch up)

What gadgets did I use today in the last twenty-four hours?

My phone, a microwave, a crockpot, a scraper, a car, an alarm, a pedometer, a knife, a fork, a spoon… a bed… OK, so I guess my question is; when don’t we use a gadget?

Someone who cannot abandon everything – 306/366 (catch up)

What are the achievements I am most proud of…


Shit, it is the kind of say where my inclination is to say that I have not achieved anything. Not a bad day, but one where when I consider the world as a whole, the idea of achievements seems so fucking ridiculous. If I have to pick something to say I guess it is that I am still alive and I don’t think people hate me (too much).
