"Doctors and Lifts" is better than "Snakes and Ladders"

Today I went to the endocrinologist. I don't like going, not because of the whole "I hate doctors" thing (I really do hate doctors), but because the building it utterly ridiculous. There's a flight of stairs which goes from the lobby to the 1st floor... yes, 1st floor... only... in a four storey building. So instead of avoiding the lift to eventually take the lift to the 2nd floor, I decided, quite naturally to take the bloody lift. I walked in, pressed the 2nd button and waited. The lift stopped and I stepped out and avoided bumping into a doctor with a maroon striped shirt. Looked around and realised I stepped off on the 1st floor. Rolling my eyes I went back to the lift and finally got to the 2nd floor. The doors opened and there in front of me, with this bemused smile on his face, was the maroon striped doctor.

I could be embarrassed, but I got an immense satisfaction knowing that I made him step out on the wrong floor only to go back to the lift to get to his correct destination. Take that, medical man!

Swan Valley... say what??

Ok, so this happened a number of weeks ago, but every time I pass this one particular sign on Toodyay Road, I can't help but giggle and question my sanity.

The sign reads
"Swan Valley: Perth's Valley of Taste"

but I read
"Swan Valley: 'Fetus' of Taste"

I know... I need help.

Queen of Beasts?

Ok, just a little pet peeve...
TV show, Cougar Town, with Courteney Cox. The ad for it rubs me the wrong way for one particular reason... the “cougar” which is meant to be part of a woman’s reflection isn’t a cougar. It’s a lioness. These are two species from completely different continents. The stupidity of people astounds me sometimes.

Of lies and treats

Finished my last lecture for the day and decided to head home. Was feeling so hungry since the lecture was 3 hours long and went well into lunchtime, and despite thinking I'd buy something from the campus cafe I was promptly stopped by members of Greenpeace. So thanks to Greenpeace, I didn't buy lunch OR get to my lecture on time.

Anyway, on the way home I thought I'd stop off at the local shops and grab something there... I was hankering for fast food, but since my lecture was on health and nutrition, I convinced myself to just go straight home and make something instead.

My brain lied to itself. I wanted something deep fried and smothered in chocolate, but instead my brain convinced me that natural yogurt with chopped banana, pear, nectarine and grapes would be a real treat... I can't believe I was convinced that was a "treat".

I still want that chocolate...

Zombies drive too

Was out with a friend for lunch last Wednesday and on our way back to her place she decided to run some errands. So, we're waiting at the lights, and we notice (quite obviously since it was the car in front of us) two guys in a blue 4x4. At first we thought they were fitting... then we thought they were arguing. They were actually dancing to Michael Jackson's "Thriller"... (yes, with all the Thriller moves while seated).

A sombrero... to hide the blonde

Just remembered something...

We (myself, Ben and my brother) were waiting in the queue to enter Soundwave 2010 (March 1st), and a woman was selling timetables on lanyards. Ben bought one and so did the pair of girls in front of us with massive sombreros. The band and stage sessions were in 24hr time. Without skipping a beat, one of the sombrero girls questioned loudly, “What’s 22 mean?” Her friend didn’t know either. I lost faith in humanity yet again and it was only a Monday.

Cats are like a box of chocolates...

Well... the two kittens we've had since they were 5 weeks old are now 6 months old, so they were booked in today for "the snip". We've been under the impression we had a brother and sister pair, and knew that the female, Lily, would be more costly than our male, Marshall.

They've been to the vet twice prior to this scheduled operation for their vaccinations and general check-ups. But no one has bothered correcting or even noticed one discrepancy...

Turns out Marshall was always a female. . .
