>Nitrazepam rules OK + MORE eye candy

>I was determined not to let anyone or anything annoy me today after yesterday, I was feeling calm, cool, collected, in control … and then one of the first emails I opened when I got to the office lit that fuse again … (Sigh) Several emails later … credit has to go to my lovely deputy editor/Smoggie snapper for force-feeding me a cup of hot milk and almost an entire bottle of Mogadon.

So anyway … we have fog this morning. It’s still here, late morning, yet it never fails to amaze me the number of drivers that assume the lights-on-in-fog rule doesn’t apply to them. It’s FOGGY, you stupid people. We can’t see you. And grudging sidelights are neither use nor ornament in conditions where parked vehicles loom up out of nowhere. We get good fog in South Yorkshire, particularly over the agricultural and common land.

Yesterday on my way home from work I dropped in and had an hour with the keep fat buddy. I bought us both a big, re-sealable, shareable bag of Galaxy Minstrels each so that I didn’t have to share mine, and she force-fed me a fresh cream apple turnover. Fresh cream apple turnover plus half a giant bag of Minstrels does not constitute a nutritious tea, but that’s what I had along with a packet of Quavers. I watched CSI: Miami and CSI: NY, then went to bed and slept like a baby …

… until 4:30am when the kittykat shuffle began … (Sigh) Why can’t they both wake up and go out together? Why does the second one always wait until I’m almost asleep again before realising she may have missed the going-out-fest? Why do they have to yowl beneath the window to come back in? Why can’t they just come in at breakfast time? And how do they know which window to yowl beneath?

The alarm went off at 7:30am and I hit OFF instead of SNOOZE … and I slept in after all and was late to work. No wonder I’m cranky. I need more chocolate – but I left the other half of the giant bag of Minstrels at home. (Sigh)

So, now WW3 has been averted, I’d best get on with the rest of my magazine. Contributors would do well to remember that theirs is not the only article to be published in any particular issue.

Especially for Little Nidge, here’s a bit more eye candy. I think I got the right era …

I found Pammy here (librarising.com).

And here’s another one for me and my friends:

I found Josh here (bigsislilsis.com). Yum.

    >Oh dear, just put it down to one of those days. We have the fog here. It was sunny before it came down. Hopefully you will soon be tucking into what is left of the Minstrels, eat, enjoy, tomorrow is another day.

    >Oh dear, does this one come across as a bit grumpy? Sorry. :o) I said tomorrow is another day yesterday … maybe tomorrow really will be.

    >Cat flap. My grandmother had a clear plastic one that she put in the second story window. The cat would go in and out on her own, onto the roof of the bay window in the living room and up and down the pine tree.The only time it was a problem was when the cat decided we weren't good enough providers and brought her fresh kills through the window and into the bed.

    >That's the reason we have the kittykat shuffle and not a catflap – they bring too much ex-wildlife home with them, some of it headless and bleeding, some of it just the entrails … I'd rather not have the half dead stuff crawling around and finding somewhere to die too. It's an almost daily occurrence in the summer, and it's bad enough disposing of what they leave in the yard.

    >I was kidding honest but thats the era exactly, somewhere around 'Tooltime/Home Improvement and Early Baywatch…she went down hill after that (says Brad Pitt!!)Heather Locklear..pre-Tommy Lee next please (kidding..really!)Can't see anything wrong with that sort of diet…except a couple of pints of Tetleys is missing.

    >I'll see if I can find one of Heather for Friday! ;o) I can never understand a naturally lovely woman making such a mess of herself in the so-called name of beauty. I'd need a couple of bottles of Jacques, or a couple of pints of Bulmers (pear).

    >Thanks – I'm looking forward to the rest of those Minstrels now.

    >Just passing through…I love mogadon and cat flaps, and I too hate people who drive in fog with no lights (or perhaps even worse, side lights, which means they have noticed the fog but don't know the RULES).

    >Nice of you to drop by and say hello – you're very welcome. The mogodon thing was really a euphemism.
