Me (accusingly) : How come you think you’re a Virgo? Him: Because I am. Me: No, you’re not (not that it matters). Him: Yes, I am. Me: No, the 22nd is on the cusp. Sure, you’re nearly a Virgo but you’re actually a Leo. Him: No, I’m not. Me: But I looked it up. You’re […]

i forgot … here’s the fridge in my house

Thanks to Daniel’s technology, here is a pic of the fridge in my house … On it you will see: a Sun cinema poster (out of date), recipes (various), a pic of the three bears by Phee, magnets (assorted), cartoons (all funny), an article on growing organic apples, a menu for the week, reviews of […]
