Having a bad day?

I found this pic and thought I would share it:




Gave me a good giggle, anyway!

The weather here is terrible, wind and rain seems to be settling in for the weekend.

Tomorrow is a University Open Day, so I will be here showing visitors the wonders of GIS (computer mapping, etc), including a lesson in where not to buy a house if you don't want the river moving in from time to time. Hm, and they are now building a couple of hundren new houses in one of the worst spots...

So sadly I will miss most of Saturday, but I get Monday off instead, which is pretty cool - except that my wife has got me booked up to do some major DIY with her that we have been putting off for a long time :-( Look out for the full story in next week's exciting episode...

Ewwwwww! That cartoon is disgusting - and totally hilarious.
I'm very excited to hear how all the DIY turns out, that is one of my favourite things to do.
Good luck and have a wonderful weekend!

Hi John!
That cartoon does sum up how life is sometimes...... you never know.

Talking about University Open Days, Laundry Fairy and I took Big Son to Oxford yesterday to look around....what a place! It has Royal Holloway beat hands down.

Of course getting into Oxford is not an easy matter even if you have the grades....

Now why did Blogger let me leave a comment then but sometimes does not?

Weird

Yes, that picture was GREAT!!! HA!!

Can't wait to hear about your DIY projects. We are about to start a little 'curb appeal' project to the front of our house here in the next few weeks...

*HI JAMES!!!!!!!*

I laughed out loud at the cartoon! OK, and how come I'm the only one who doesn't seem to know what DIY projects are? It may just be lack of sleep...

John said...

Terri - DIY = Do It Yourself, eg putting up shelves, building a porch...

Glad you all like the cartoon!

Terri said...

Ah, I get it. We call that the Honey-Do list!

LOVE the cartoon! We're going to try and paint more of the house this weekend. We'll see it keeps raining whenever we start! Have a great weekend!

I'm glad I read the comments before commenting - I was going to ask what DIY means (then I got the answer from your reply to Terri). How come everyone else knows what it means??

ANYWAY, I was just going to say thanks for making me laugh (the cartoon). Laughing makes me happy.

Good luck with the DIY projects! I have a list too, but it will never get done. I look forward to reading about how yours turns out.
