You forgot to highlight a "crap", "pisses" and a "Damn" :)

Bad luck mate!

Apparently research has shown that the 24th of january is the most depressing day of the year. Maybe it was nothing to do with the water and the oven couldn't take it anymore.
Ps: what kind of funding body payed for research into the most depressing day of the year?

And this is what is wrong with medicine today! Talk about a self-fulfilling prophecy. If I could get my hands on your GP I would give him 'anticipatory nausea'. Basically Matt, you were quite ill before Christmas, and my guess is that you haven't fully recovered from it - speaking from experience, the physical and psychological effects of a nasty virus can take anything up to 6 months to go away. So just look after yourself.

*hugs* I am. I'm relaxing and taking things easy. Had a really nice weekend in Southwold and feeling a bit better for it. I even had some reflexology!

Can you not board the train without paying?

I used to commute to college a couple of years ago and being in a financial predicament of having nothing to my name and cycling being out of the question and bussing the journey being too expensive i decided to commute by train. It worked for 6 months, showing my expired train ticket which was 18 months old whenever anyone asked for it, they generally looked at it smiled and looked away.

Be confident and carry the money just in case. 6 months worth of train commuting cost me a 10 fine.

you didnt see the news ages ago about the price rise then. lol

by Matt at 12:00 on 28th Jan 2006
I saw the news. But the reports were citing increases of up to 5% on saver tickets.

My shock is that the rise is nearly 50% which by any measure is far more than the "news ages ago" reported.

Morning sickness? Feeling tired? Sure you're not pregnant? If you are, I'll be your agent!!

by Matt at 09:42 on 16th Jan 2006
Haha! The theory has been discussed. My girlfriend doesn't quite like the idea of mothering my child at the moment.

I've not started craving any food yet, so I can't be that far along. Perhaps she'll come round in time.

by lil rich at 18:51 on 16th Jan 2006

by MrLobster at 18:25 on 19th Jan 2006
Stop eating fairy dust!!!

Reminds me of when I had my blood tested when I donated blood. I was hoping that my result was going to return with some obscure result hoping a non-existant blood group or characteristics of a super-hero... sadly I'm but a mere mortal.

More protein, especially white fish.

But still, that takes effort. And if their competition is willing to answer my queries in emails and on the phone they're more likely to get my tuition fees and goverment subsidies. I don't think it's much to expect a company to provide you with their products details when you request them. But perhaps I'm old fashioned in expecting friendly, polite and helpful service from a company.

Good luck for blood test results, hope its all OK
