Awww, man!
Somehow I forgot to eat today. And shopping doesn't seem to be in fashion anymore either. So I wish I had your problem right now.
The fact is I let the prehistoric peanut size part of my bottom back brain over rule all logical thinking jeopardizing the essence of my first world existence.

You should set the ring tone to sound like a round of applause. It'll give you a sense of achievement while you are on the throne.

My OH, and both of his brothers, leave all the cupboard doors and drawers open in their kitchens. Their mother says "It's a disease".
Haha, MrsG does that all the time. Drives me bloody insane.

Live with someone who can only unscrew screw topped containers.

That's insanity.

I really fancy some squirty cheese in a can, and all we have in the fridge is gruyere and emmentaler.

Is she paying for it? Cuz it's not cheap. Tell her she can have all your cash, or she can get you as a diamond but only if she pays.

She's taking the whole "A Diamond is a girl's best friend" a tad too literally.

I've told her she can do one! There's no effing way I'm being a diamond ring when she goes to the bathroom. I'm going off the back of the Blue Star ferry from Santorini to Piraeus at sunset.

Nice having a look at your retirement account statement and reading how long you are expected to live.
