    Jade Goody and the national outpouring.

    Why I got such evils from my colleagues when I said "What is the nation actually losing?"

    Granted some TV chiefs probably had to think "What hideous & vacuous celebrity can we follow around to fill air-time?" shortly before thinking "Oh it's ok, Kerry Katona & Katie Price are still around"

    It confuses me why people need to put lol, or similar acronyms (LMAO etc) at the end of EVERY sentence - even ones that aren't funny.

    Did you laugh when you wrote it? No

    Did I laugh when I read it? No.

    So don't put it there. Just leave it.

    I do put lol occasionally - but only if I laughed out loud - and therefore prompted a "what are you laughing at?" from the hubby.

    LMAO occurs very very occasionally if I laugh for a long time, hubby looks & he laughs for a long time. Usually reserved for the likes of WandA, SG & Headsouth (am I sexist?)

    im confused as to why my chronic fatigue can be worse when im home and theres generally less i *have* to do then when im attending uni and living semi independantly :S

    why do i have enough coordination to play on a DS and write but cant tie shoelaces ( that's one embarrasing revalation for a 20 year old!)

    Don't be embarrassed!

    I'm the opposite with the fatigue - I find uni and living independantly tough fatigue wise and yet I'm pretty good in the summer so I con myself into thinking it's not as bad as it is!

    Adx

    i tend to have good days and bad if im honest. good days i can get into uni walking with mates and things.

    bad days i cant even get out of bed.

    think its cause i do more when im home. got people to go on trips with or even just accompanying mother to the shops and stuff can be knackering.

    thing with shoes is i get someone to tie them so i can just pull my shoes on or off, ( or wear sandals with velcro straps :P )

    Why don't you see white dog poo any more?

    Why does brown sugar a less refined product than white cost more than white???

    What happened to white eggs?????

    Merely three life's mysteries l lay awake at night pondering.

    TB

    1. I don't know - I didn't realise I hadn't til you said - weird.

    2. It's tastier and is often advocated by posher celeb chefs so posher people buy it & can afford to spend more on it so the supermarkets charge more.

    3. UK people see browner eggs as "more natural" so farmers give them grit which turns the eggs brown. USA still have white eggs everywhere as they associate white with clean.

    Why carrots in tesco and asda now bear no resemblance to the ones when I was little, there is nothing green attached, no mud anywhere, they are 3 times the size of normal carrots (I had an allotment once) and why tesco lemons are now the size of oranges.

    Why the thought of lighting a willy candle makes 3 male friends, and one sister wince- the sister doesn't even have a penis!

    I do that - tie them at a good tightness that they can be slipped on and off but are comfy....I get really annoyed if someone unties my shoelaces when putting my shoes away for me because it takes me a good few tries to get them at exactly the right tightness!

    i dont think they can dismiss you if you don't!

    theres no grounds to dismiss you if you dont accept them, so long as your not using your Fb when you should be in work time.

    id tell them to get stuffed, theres no way it can be rational or deemed as fair dismissal. anyway you can say the company is shit. thats a statement of opinion!

    but they threaten people with dismissal so they do it :? if your part of a union i would give them a call hun
