My week so far



I used stronger language than that when the umpteenth machine died on me. And it's not that time of the month. In case you were wondering.

    1. I know! The guy who did the voice-over is a genius - this is so well-timed!

      It cheered me up to no end - a friend sent it to me, not knowing that a multitude of appliances had given up on me this week ;-)

  2. I squealed right at the very end - hahaha!!! I've had a super busy week, much longer hours at this new job and never a chance to scratch myself. I don't think I got a chance to eat, drink or go to the toilet until after 4 the first two days. Gotta get myself better organised than that before I starve, wilt, or explode - ha!

    1. I can't stop laughing at it! Cats - they crack me up every time!

      Whoa - who's a busy girl then?? Still, a lot of the time, even though it's super busy, the thrill of a new job (especially as this really is a whole new ball game) gives you that extra boost to keep going. Shouldn't last too long though!

  3. I worked from home for a year and when I had to print something my cats came all running to watch the thing work. They were in awe with the paper coming out from the tray. Some of them were scared and shocked some others just curious, but they were all very much entertained by the thing. I love when they start a fight with inanimate objects: sabino does that with the hoover! He won't move to let me vacuum under his butt, instead he shoos it away!!
    And I know what you mean. I just know you from the photo in your profile, but I think we look a lot like each other. I think I have darker skin and eyes, and my hair are not as dark as it looks in pictures, but we are very similar types indeed!!

    1. I'm having fun picturing your cats and the printer! All the cats I had were fascinated by household appliances and electronic objects. Anything that buzzed and moved basically! Still, they all made sure to scamper off as soon as the vacuum cleaner was in sight! That's so funny that Sabino attacks it - he's a real feisty one! King of his castle... can you believe some cats even like to be vacuumed??

      Yes, you could be my sister in appearance... I'm a real mix of my mum & dad, but you could be a 'product' of theirs too! I have very pale skin and dark grey eyes, and my hair is not as dark as in the pictures. You have brown eyes I believe (like my mother) and slightly darker skin - but still - the hair, basic shape of the face etc. are all very similar! How extraordinary!!

  4. My grandmother was from spain and I'm very much like her. I've been always told I look spanish (or indian, or mexican, but never Italian). on my last trip to Spain spanish people asked ME for directions among other spanish people ALL THE TIME. I almost wanted to print on my t-shirt 'I know nothing about streets around here because I'm from Milan!'.But yes, the basics we have are the same. I've got hamster cheeks. I hope you don't have those too. No diet will help and make them go away!

    1. Tell me about it - no matter how much weight I lose, I still keep this great big round head with the chubby cheeks. But whenever I complain about it to people they say it's cute and it wouldn't be me if I wouldn't have them. My nickname among friends is Betty Boop, do you remember that cartoon character? The funny thing is that even strangers comment to me 'You know who you remind me of?' Oh well. Better that than to look like Scooby Doo I guess.

      Hmm, my mother is always mistaken for someone Spanish or at least southern european. With my pale complexion I'm not, but when I'm abroad people usually can't pinpoint where Í'm from. Which suits me fine - I like being a woman of mystery... ;-D ;-D
