Like most artificial people, he had a love of nature  

Today was one of those days when I could really feel my skin keeping my blood in. In a good way.

I spent most of the morning marvelling at how lucky I am. How lucky I am, for example, that I am not that young single mother on my bus. That I do not have the sole charge of a small bratty toddler. That said toddler did not chuck up on the seat beside me. True, I had to live with the smell of vomit all the way through the Glanmire roundabout, but I still found myself thinking how fortunate I am to know so many people, in RL and lj, who are so much more fantastic than me. And also, just plain fantastic, you know?

Also, I'm pretty sure I saw a duck drowning in the Lee. I have to say, I'm quite glad that I'm not that duck. (This was the point at which 'counting my blessings' went calculus, I think, but still.)

On a slightly more horrific note, I was watching TV (for a wonder - and this is why I don't do it more often, actually) and an ad came on with two people snogging. Major tonsil hockey now, and great amounts of tongue in evidence. It was a blurred shot, and then the caption flicked up: 'One of these people is wearing dentures. But which one?'

They were old! Really really really old people! Kissing with tongues! YUCK. I think I'll write to the Advertising Standard Enforcement Squad, or whatever they're called. I am TRAUMATISED.

Ew, two vowels together? That's evil.

No, wait, Lee? Shite. Betcha it ain't as big, though.

Ours is tiny. It is but a tributry to the mighty Thames.

Not only am I routinely the first commenter, but am I one of those afore-mentioned fantastic people. Bet I am!

You are completely delusional as to the first commenter thing, but yes, you are MR FANTASTIC, COMPLETELY PLASTIC! Or whatever the song is. (Why do I feed myself Dr Pepper? Why?)

Because it's the wimps version of root beer.

I swear it's happened twice!

You had to ride on a bus with vomit, see an animal drown, and watch old people mackin' it hard core, and you are still in a good mood. You amaze me, you silver lining seeker!

Babes, when I'm in a good mood, I'm in a GOOD MOOD. Don't do nuttin' by halves, me!

Heheee macking it.

Do you guys say that in Ireland? Is this going to be "tool" all over again?

There was a program on here a while ago about old people sex. I watched it.

Sometimes, I cry myself to sleep.

How can a duck drown? Isn't swimming, like, built in?
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on February 3rd, 2005 10:55 am (UTC)
Oh, you poor traumatised person. I can slighly sympathise. No wonder I am so cautious about the tube.

I don't know! It was swimming, and then it went under and didn't come up and there were, like, ripples! Although the bus drove on and I didn't see any more...
