In need of SCUBA gear, good chocolate and Laphroaig or sim.

In need of SCUBA gear, good chocolate and Laphroaig or sim.

  • SCUBA gear because I am buried alive under a never-ending pile of OMG too much frakkin’, gorram work and administrative bullshit and colleagues who make me feel like I’m Mary-Sue-ing the “groundhog day” episode of Xena: Warrior Princess that LDW showed me when I was visiting him in fabulous European Capital, and large cat. X, having read about my fear of being buried alive (“I’m not dead yet!”), suggested I be buried in a cardboard box with an oxygen tank, just in case…
  • good chocolate because of the endorphins
  • Laphroig or sim.? Need you ask?

Also …

Host needed for the next A/M Carnivalesque … SQ? Tenth C? Magistra?

    Gawd. I would, but I’m snowed under and have loads of stuff of my own I haven’t yet posted. What sort of work is involved?

    Stick to the Laphroaig and good chocolate. Scuba diving is too much work.

    Tenthmedieval — basically at around the 20th of the month in question, you put up a post that ties together a bunch of posts from the last two months. We try to push posts your way, so you don’t have to do all the work! If not now, maybe in May?Susan — if you’re the Susan I think, you’ll be hearing from me very soon!

    Weirdly, it’s cheapest at the duty-free on the way over — about $40 per LITRE rather than $55 for 750 ml. Still, it’s hard to drink too much of it, and it’s never given me a hangover.

    Go on then, count me in for May. I don’t think I can take the current one on, if only because I’ll be back from a fortnight in Catalonia only a week before and have too much stuff of my own to say and catch up on…
