My nose was cold last night. Camping at 8 degrees, I think my bikini stays packed this trip.
Surely camping is a Third World Problem? Nobody in the First World should be forced to endure that sort of misery.

Even when things are going well, Peanut Flips just make them worse. If you start at a low and add Flips then you'll need some form of antidote. I suggest a crisp butty with butter and Salt and Vinegar crisps, followed by a couple of Mars bars or a Magnum or three.

Once your system has passed the toxins from the flips you'll be fine. Maltesers may speed the process somewhat
You're right -
I feel much better now!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I can't book my holiday flights for the end of the year because work (a) won't make it clear when we are off the hook at the end of the year, and (b) isn't giving me any indications whether I'll still have a job at the end of the year.

Meanwhile, the award seats* are quickly evaporating...


* award seats are the limited seats made available by the airlines - particularly in First and Business Class - which are payable with frequent flyer points / miles

Yup.
The Flips, crisp butty with butter and Salt and Vinegar crisps, followed by a couple of Mars bars or a Magnum or three.
The Maltesers are still disolving.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I shouldn't have had so much prosecco with lunch: I have a mild hangover at just gone 8 pm. Am seeing if a G and T will rectify the situation. For science.

I'm not sure if I can be friends with a woman that I like.

The poll from the other thread statistically suggests that there's such a possibility, so I guess my inner can be adjusted accordingly.

P.S. In parallel universe though... after giving a good seeing to ... each other - it will work.

The hotel website that I looked at last night is now haunting me on the EF home page!
