101/1001 (18)

29 Jul

Week 18: no tasks completed.  Many are ongoing.

Nothing of interest to report.

Two new 101/1001ers have taken up my slack:

I suggest you go and visit them because it’s dullsville here.

And don’t forget to check out the rest in the list on the right.  I mean it.  Or else.


The decorating is finished.  It’s not on my 101 list but it was on my Jobs To Do list on the fridge, if that helps.

I haven’t posted photos yet because Spud hasn’t seen it.  He went to stay with his brother in Lancaster last Friday, until Wednesday.  He texted on Wednesday to say he was coming home Thursday.  He texted on Thursday to say he was coming home today.

He hasn’t woken up yet, I’m reliably informed, so he may or may not text to say he’s coming home tomorrow.

You never knew I was a hotel in another life, did you?

Pictures may or may not, therefore, appear tonight.  I wouldn’t watch this space if I were you.

Lots of Love,



I don’t want to cheat you of your laughs today, so here’s a bonus joke, excluded from the 1001 countdown (technically, countup), for Viewfromtheside‘s prompt, joke:

The graduate with a science degree asks, “Why does it work?”
The graduate with an engineering degree asks, “How does it work?”
The graduate with an accounting degree asks, “How much will it cost?”
The graduate with an arts degree asks, “Do you want fries with that?”

    Sorry, Grumpy . . . I’m sure he’ll love it when he returns home to roost. 😀

    My fave:
    The graduate with an arts degree asks, “Do you want fries with that?”

      As a graduate with an arts degree…it’s my favourite too 🙂

    I need all the smiles I can get – so I’m grateful for your post today, especially, Tilly! Love the cartoon. . .

      Hope you start to feel better soon, Paula. You’re having a rather horrid time at the moment.

    Oh, I hope he loves his room and appreciates your efforts. Congratulations on finishing it.

    I’m going to have to send that joke to my brother who has an art’s degree. He has a very secure job with the Honolulu Police department, but I get your point.

      I know from bitter experience just how much an arts degree is worth. Glad your brother got a job in spite of his 🙂

    You’re still funny when you’re grumpy. Can’t wait to see the pics!

    Hi Grumpy, I’m grumpy too. Hope the wanderer returns to fete his new room soon. Well done on getting it finished – those fridge lists can be buggers.

    Now you’ve papered are you going to get plastered too?


  11. Slowvelder July 30, 2011 at 01:29 #

    Hmmm I never thought of that – maybe I was a hotel in a past life too???

    I, for one, am loving your count-up!!

    My things are mostly ongoing things too – well done for making an entertaining blog post out of it!!

      Thanks. It didn’t feel that way when I was writing it 🙂


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
