(*) Beware the ides of March

dot One night a few evenings' ago, my housemate comes home from work, carrying a large white cardboard carton in her arms. As she walked past me into the kitchen, she quickly said one word, putting the box on the kitchen bench. As she was rushing straight back out again, she turned and walked straight into her room to get changed. I didn't quite hear what she said when she'd first walked in - but I'm sure I must have misheard what I thought she couldn't have said... inside the box was NOT what I thought she said was 'porn'... but 'corn'!!! About 10 cobs of farm-fresh corn! I laffed and laffed for hours at that one! Well, now we have a box of the world's only R-rated corn... ok ok, you had to be there...

dot I was greeted at my front door yesterday evening by a very cute and small black rabbit - about the size of your foot, it was. Very fluffy, cute, twitchy nose - the works. I was standing admiring its' cuteness, when one of the small cowardly local cats - resplendent with jingle-jangle bells around its' neck - sprung from behind a shrubbery and chased the poor little black fluff-ball away at great speed up the driveway! Boo hoo! Ahh, the wonders of country urbanity, ehhh...?

dot Mum was so breathless tonight, that she couldn't even talk for very long on the phone. Hmmm... I must have interrupted her 826th push-up or something, maybe...? Gees, you've gotta laff... what else can you do in the face of impending death?

Out of a scale of 10, I'm running at about a 5.5 - 6 at the moment. How do you rate yourself at the moment out of 10? It's a foolishly-simple self-diagnostic test.

At last! The ultimate online definition collection you've been searching for over all these wasted and fruitless years! The one, the only, the fantasmagorical, the why-would-you-bother - Diconary !!!

Stuck a hose in its ear
And invented the first Jumbo jet.
