Hopefully you and TH are back to your sweet selves today!!

 

I have been sweet throughout. TH has been a little bit of a sphincter again this morning but then I would think that :)

LOOK AT THIS VIDEO! JUST LOOK AT IT!

 

Erasure music videos are a genre all on their own. I remember my mom has Erasure Pop! On VHS and they were all fantastic. Especially this one that I can't remember what it's the video to but it was about an army of little cupid angels with a bigger cupid gangmaster. Amazing.

Is this about a stalker? OR is it about the apocalypse?? Incredible song. 

 

 

 

That has major Leonard Cohen vibes and now I am confused.

Friday Update

 

I was still feeling a little salty with TH so I decided to take some stuff to my mom's to get out of the house. My dad washed my car when I was there. There were lots of jokes because I have never washed or had my card washed in the whole time I have had it. "Oooh Deffy look! It has a metallic finish! I always thought it was matte!". My mom can mind her business. To be fair, given it has been years and years since the car has been washed it doesn't look too bad, but I wouldn't give a fuck even if it did. I will never wash it again so everybody had better not get used to this. 

 

I got back and TH had had a meeting with his manager about the thing he was so pissed off about that caused him to be a sphincter in the first place so he was in a marginally better mood. I put on Assassin's Creed and played that all afternoon, then cooked my parent's takeaway and make a honey cajun chicken and mango salad for us. We had a few drinks in the garden then watched some mindless TV before turning in for an early night which turned into quite a late one.

Don’t look at this video; it’ll give you a seizure, but I enjoy this song even more. 

 

 

 

I love all the erasure covers. Heavy in my IPod rotation. 

 

At the risk of being cheesy, I love this version too

 

 

ETA: i’d Never seen that Emotions video before and now I need a gold lame suit

Today's garden party outfit

 

Marie Antoinette Wedding Dress, Marie Antoinette Bridal Gown

 

Yes I turned up to my party dressed like Marie Antoinette and if you want to fight about it you'll have to wait for me to take it off because it doesn't look like I'd be able to roundhouse kick in it so give me a minute. 

 

Today's theme:

 

Michael Jackson

My brain started playing this song when I saw that name:

 

 

It's one of those song titles you can hear just by reading the name of it isn't it?

There's a "USA Version" of this song that includes new as now news footage.  I love the drum in this one.

 

It is a great song.

Saturday Update

 

I woke up completely starving yesterday morning, to the point where I was downstairs making a slice of cheese on toast before I even had my coffee. To put that into perspective, I cannot remember ever eating anything at all until I have had two cups of coffee in my entire adult life. That cheese on toast was phenomenal. 

 

We decided to drain our pond yesterday because the evening before we saw some weird tadpole things in the water that weren't tadpoles. We think they were drone fly larvae because they had that weird rat tail thing they have, but we've been meaning to clean out the pond for ages because it is truly disgusting in there. The pump isn't connected because the lady we bought the house from rudely took the lion statuette the water fountained down out of and it's under a canopy of trees so leaves fall into there and start rotting in the stagnant water. Since we're not convinced getting the fountain sorted would solve all the problems this pond presents to us, we decided to just drain it, clean it out and board it over. It's raised above the ground about three feet and it goes down to the floor, so after we'd used a pump we'd borrowed off my dad to get as much water out as possible we had to bend over and pull out the old leaves and drain the rest of the water with pots. The water was black. It was grim. I also pulled my back leaning into it, but a bit of sleep has sorted that out. We had no room in our garden waste bin so we bagged up the gross leaves and took it to my parents to put it in their bin and I took them their takeaway too. My dad had given us some wooden planks to cover the pond up and we thought on the way there what we could do with that space and we decided to cover it with fake grass, get some artificial plants and make a shrine to someone (we later decided it would be Andre the Giant) and the plan was to come back home and order that stuff so we could finish it off but I don't know if you remember my parents are magic for this sort of thing but they always have everything I need, just like in Needful Things. I remember when we first bought this house and we needed a bar stool type chair for the breakfast bar in the kitchen and I needed a chair for my dressing room to sit on when I did my make up and not only did they have a perfectly sized bar stool chair, but my mom gave me a choice of two different chairs for my dressing room. 

 

Well, yesterday was no different. My mom asked me what I was going to do with the pond and I told her about the fake grass idea and she said - you can have that bit there if it fits and pointed to this bit she had underneath her garden table I had never before noticed wasn't real grass. So I measured it and it was exactly the right size, TO THE CENTIMETRE. I queried if I needed anything to put underneath the stop the water going down, and she pulled out a piece of vinyl that I thought was too small so she gave me two pieces to patch up (when I got home it turned out this was exactly the right size too) and some fake plants. She also gave me two tomato plants. I don't know how my parents do this, it's magic. I told them I am going to check with them first before I buy anything ever again to see if they have it and they said that's what their neighbours do. And they're right about that - just in the time I was there one of their neighbours asked my dad if he had a paving stone cutter (he did) and another if he had a tree lopper (he also did). Magic. The only thing they didn't have, and this is arguably the most important thing but I won't dwell on it, was a waterproof framed picture of Andre the Giant but I think that was a big ask and I can sort that out myself anyway. 

 

We got home and finished the pond, then we went for a ride around the private road at the back of the house on TH's bike. It's a bit big for me and I almost fell off a couple of times. We then sat in the sunshine for a while. I made us hotdogs for dinner and we went back out to lay around in the sunshine after. 

 

I don't feel at my best right now. I am gaining weight but I can't be arsed to care and I am currently just letting the fatness take me. I'm not prepared right now to do all the things to stop this happening so I will just have to accept it until I can be bothered again.

Magic.

This is awesome.  So glad you were able to get that sorted.  

 

I feel you about the weight.  I'm right there with you.  The situation is impacting all of us in different ways, and we are all doing the best we can.

Exactly. I am trying to not be too hard on myself here because it's little wonder I am struggling to motivate myself. The world is on fire.

I'm gonna pass. I googled Oasis and am tired of all the songs I recognized. That didn't make me want to listen to any more. I only know one Blur song and didn't feel like posting it. I think my bad attitude might get me kicked out of the garden party if I don't watch it. Maybe I'll make some scones as a peace offering.

 The pest controller man came although it was a different guy. He was actually better, he had lots of advice. He said they have seen a massive increase of rat issues because all the pubs and restaurants have closed so their food sources have gone meaning they are having to go further out to find food. They have also turned cannibalistic which is nice. Cannibalistic rats isn't a nightmare hellscape for me at all. He did say he is definitely sure they are not in the house which is always reassuring although we do already know this. He also said they're not in the shed either so maybe the massive bastards aren't even on my property at all. He said we might just live between their runs which could be at the properties either side. If this is true all the money I am spending on what will be six pest controller visits might as well be spaffed up the wall but in these days of social isolation it's nice to have the house guests so still, money well spent.

 

We've been hearing about the cannibalistic rats on this side of the pond too. On the plus, way better to have paid for pest control you don't need than the reverse.

I have not ever even heard of either of these.

 

Random selection:

 

Wow, on second thought after listening to that, this band does NOT get my vote.  Oasis it is

That's why I liked it, people seeing my upper arms and decolletage is so passe.

You're allowed any attitude you like at this garden party! 

 

And we did still need the pest control because we were still seeing a lot of them, they just might not have been on our property.

Had I picked Oasis, which I haven't, this would have been my song.

Oasis were better than Blur!

 

Damon Albarn has done way cooled stuff since!

 

I used to think this but as I have aged, a slight preference for Blur has emerged, like my sudden excitement for the Betterware catalogue and love of Pointless. 

 

Also yass, Gorilllaz!
