Re: The First World Problem Thread

I bought OH a nice juicy T-Bone for his dinner today. (Trading in an arm, leg, and left kidney to afford it...)

The ancient Belltie's appetite is up and down, lately dangerously down. Having refused food all day, a minor miracle: As I was grilling OH's glorious T-Bone he suddenly showed interest. So I gave him a piece. Which he wolfed down. So I gave him another. And another. And another...


FWP: Now I have no idea what to feed OH tonight. Nor the heart to tell him I fed his prime T-Bone to the dog...





(Even OH gives the Belltie a pass on everything these days. We are just happy the Ancient One is still here. Gotta love the Oldies. )

You have thunder and lightning? You can keep that...


FWP: my bespoke kitchen cupboard doors aren't bespoke enough. I now have gaps while they make some more...

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I had the blinds down & the curtains closed all weekend. The neighbours no doubt think I am antisociable & did not appreciate their party till gone 2am (ok, that is true)... but I didn't want their guests to see I was watching porn either.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I've told someone I speak French, and now they want to speak French all the time. My brain hurts. I only have the patience for one foreign language at a time - that would be English, thank you.
