You crack me up

Thankee, ma'am! :)


Lol, well for something written with no brain power it's pretty darn entertaining. Better than some of my posts that actually use mental energy!

The first day back to work has drained me, no question about it! You are not alone! And you have a new boss? Oh dear, you must train him/her in the way he/she should go.

Hope tomorrow is better!



too funny... you crack me up! Your math skills don't matter, I would so vote for you!!


Thanks! :) :)

how many braincells do you spend on your husband? none? :-)

LOL! not yesterday anyway. He was gone all evening to a meeting :)

Hopefully this won't cost you too many braincells...

I just bombarded your mailbox. I was having difficulty getting the images light enough. Hopefully it worked out and you still can receive mail and everything.

If I add all those percentages up, I get 100%. What am I doing wrong?

Nothing. That's what they were supposed to do, but it took me forever to make them add up correctly! I kept having to tweak the numbers. DOH!

Now in the winter time, I suggest you allocate at least one more percent brain cells to your driving to and from work. I suppose even down in Skåne it suddenly can get slippery over an afternoon. Today it is one year since I crashed my previous car into the railing right after a motorway exit. It was 17 years old and beyond repair afterwards.

oy! 17 years old?! time to scrap it anyway, but that must have been a scary way to do it.

Trusty but rusty Ford Escort '88. :) VIP model according to Vägverket. I never figured out which part of it was VIP, since it didn't have any luxury except for central locking, disabled due to a broken mechanism. But it was kind of an experience, and the skidding practise taken eight years ago was to no or very little help.

good thing is . . .

you have TWICE as much brian power as the rest of us mere mortals . . .heee

Be honest! We all know that zombies came and ate the excess brain cells....
