Face It: Two + Too = Feet

23 Sep

Two nights of too little sleep = toenails embedded in my skull.

I look like this (but with hair and…ahem…padding):

I could drink tea all day, to keep me functioning:

But that would leave me a little grumpy:

I’m off to bed now, if I can just find the handle on this wall…

    Hi Tilly,

    How do you like the new admin bar that WordPress installed? It was crazy yesterday and I had to correspond back and forth with the support staff. They told me to upgrade to IE 8 from 7, because IE 7 is buggy and has security issues. That I did and my blog is working better now.

      It takes a bit of getting used to, like anything new, but I like it.

      Glad you got sorted.

    Once upon a time, I could touch my toes with ease, but not anymore. As for caffenine…Give me coffee or give me death.

    I feel exactly like your pictures, Tilly, and I have to go read my rubbish to 7 thoroughly published poets tonight!

    I do NOT like the new admin thingy – I can’t find ANYthing on my PC. The search tool is completely missing and the laptop is only marginally better.

      NOT rubbish! We’ve talked about this before, haven’t we? Don’t make me come over there and sort you out…

    amazing i wonder what was in the air to make us to feet and faces at the same time?

    I do love the grumpy you. That’s what I call a can’t do attitude.

      Tell that to my unappreciative family 🙂

    Too funny. Hope you soon return to your regularly scheduled sleep patterns.

      Thanks Hattie 🙂

        Tried to comment on your blog but couldn’t. I just wanted to say what nice feet you have 🙂

    You don’t hear people say they drink tea to stay awake very often. 🙂 I am past that point. I need Red Bull…:)

    That last picture, Linda, that’s me. I STILL cannot touch my toes without bending my knees, but at least now I can SEE my toes, which is a start, right? And last week, I was doing side bends and yelled aloud to an empty house: “I can see my own ASS!”

    I had to cut back on caffeine. One cup of “half caff” in the a.m.; decaf thereafter, plus herbal tea before bed. I used to walk around iwith teeth so clenched, you’d swear my jaw was wired shut. (In fact, my husband would probably love that!! A couple days, at least!)
    Love, Amy

    You’re funny no matter how little sleeps you get!

    Without my herbal pills I would have sleepless nights everynight. The reason being that because I am so intelligent, clever, witty beautiful fantastic etc my mind cannot switch off.

    Could this be the root of your problem TillyB?.

    love from Missmodesty whiplash

      I love this comment but, sadly, it can’t win an award because it is a roundabout compliment. 😦

    I love the images – especially that saucer-eyed cat. And “toenails embedded in my skull” does not sound pleasant – get some sleep, eh? (I hope you can – I’ve had too many sleepless nights myself lately.)

    I love the pictures Tilly. The first one was particularly scary! 🙂

    Had a lovely day with visitors from my past so I haven’t had time to blog. I’m re-posting this one because it represents how I feel after a full day laughing and chatting and catching up.

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.
