Well, not toxic, exactly... maybe just a little bit rank. But in a nice way. With a garnish.

This office is freezing.

I know I seem to be moaning about the cold quite a lot at the moment, but it's true - it's bloody freezing.
All day yesterday I thought it must be me. Is it cold, or is it me?

I've been a bit run down recently and put it down to that; shivered a bit, moaned a bit and made a mental note to wear extra big knickers and a huge woolly jumper from now on.
(I haven't got a woolly jumper actually, but now we're nit-picking. I've got some huge pants though. More about those another time).

Anyway, I found out today while whinging about the pain in my fingers (I mean, GOD, doesn't anyone know anything? It's gonna be the coldest winter in HISTORY!!! And that means ever. Since the world began. Blimey, it's cold in here) ...that the heating stopped working in the office a few days ago.

That'll explain it then.
It's not me, it's bloody freezing.

    Yeah go on, I dare you to tell them all about your massive grannie knickers! Believe me when I say, i've never seen anything quite so 'bloomer' like before.

    Make you look very cute! (tee hee)

    After all my whinging about people saying it was going to be the coldest winter EVER, it turns out that there might be some truth in it. Russian wind, apparently.

    Hrrrm, I know that anonymity is your thing, but surely a waste-down shot of your bloomers is definitely called for after that admission?

    Imp, you're just jealous. I've seen that hungry look on your face....

    Tina, did you mean 'waist-down'?
    I'll have a long, hard think about it.....

    Could always use them as a parachute to get you down from the rock you're standing on in the picture. Very functional.

    You're right I do have a hungry look on my face most of the time but that's because of being on a stupid, boring, 'making me desperate for chocolate' diet. Sorry it's not your knickers I'm after but a bar of Cadbury's.

    Jesus, my spelling is getting really bad: medication/meditation and now this!

    Yes, of COURSE I meant waist down.

    I think I've got alzheimers.

    It must be something to do with being from Manchester. I've heard they don't have schools up that way.
    Whippets, Black Pudding, ten-to-a-bed and Meat & Potato pies. You must be practically suicidal.

    Imp, stop being cheeky. You know you've got a thing about my Big Pants. And anyway, they're handy for storing snacks and reading material in. Who needs a handbag?

    All this fuss about big pants....the real problem obviously must be the scaffolding you need to get into them.

    Tina, the way these sound, the picture would need to be chin-down!

    Funny Thing, from now on remind me to avoid those snacks you offer ....especially the muffins!!!

    Leave my pants alone. You know you're all jealous.
    They save me a fortune in additional clothing - all I have to do is pop on a cardigan and a pair of socks and it gives the appearance of a very sexy all-in-one number.
    Some of us are just naturally gifted fashion trend-setters.
    Weep, you philistines.

    ps. Hello valleyboy.

    Don't think that hiding behind a crappy display name will protect you. I know exactly who you are, Boyo.

    Cheeky monkey.

    ps, Funny Thing, .....but do you really??...and a week or so on at that. I'm still worried about the muffins. Look forward to discussing them soon!

    If you're right, glad you know EXACTLY who I am! Sure you know more than most!!! ...but about the pants.....we should still talk........!!!

    Yep. I know who you are. Not a shadow of a doubt.

    You deserve a good spanking for lurking on my site pretending not to be you... but I'll settle for a pint. Deal?
