So, glue from a hot glue gun is hot.

Burlap has holes in it.

I hear if you combine the two and then try to press the burlap together and hold it to let it set, your fingers will not like you at all and very colorful language will come out of your mouth.

Not that it happened to me, though.  ::)
Thanks.  This gave me a giggle. ;D

Took way too much melatonin to help me sleep. Was literally wide awake for 3 days.

Lesson learned.

Don't try to trim your eyebrows first thing in the morning before you've had any caffeine. I look a little like one of those hip-hop kids from the 90s who shaved lines into their brows.
I have a chronic case of foot-in-mouth disease.

The volume limit on an (electrical or otherwhise) kettle is there for a reason. Water boils (duh ::)) and will end up everywhere if you fill it too much (duh˛  :-[).

So. Anyone who knows me knows that objects in motion and I are not friends.
Throwing, catching, hitting, dodging....not going to happen.

If I ask for my keys? Do not throw them. I will not be able to catch them.

I need an apple? Hope you eat bruised apples, because if you toss it, it is going to bounce off some random part of my body and go rolling around on the floor.

Having said that, it should be clear that I do not do any sports that involve hitting, catching or otherwise require depth perception and any form of visual accuracy.

Which brings us to last night.
Mr. Dragon is attending a conference and I am along to take care of some other errands. Last night and I went to the conference's German Beer Hall night, where we chatted with some great people, ate a tasty German buffet and where I won a door prize.

Guess what I won?
Yep. Two rounds of golf at a high-end golf course. {The clouds part and the Imps of Irony mock!}

Folks, the last time I golfed, I - read this carefully now - THREW the ball on the seventh hole and did BETTER than I did using the clubs!!!!!

Somehow, I don't think the course is going to let me use that technique.

I think Mr. Dragon is going to get to go golfing. With three friends. While I stay home and avoid moving objects.

The local primary school - this is a good number of years ago - had a Christmas concert. Because the hall was not large enough to take all the children plus parents, siblings, grandparents, etc., etc., cont. page 94, they held the concert outside in the playground. Since it was midwinter, they laid on tea and coffee for the adults, and for the children, fruit drinks made up with hot water.

So children's drinks can be made hot, right? And children - specifically, mine - now know this.

Did you know that if you pour half a pint - and just so we're clear, UK pints are bigger than US pints - of Irn Bru (other carbonated drinks are available) into an electric kettle and set it to boil, you get a six foot high, bright day-glow orange, fizzy, hot fountain across your kitchen? And that the stain will never come out of the ceiling plaster?

Also, for most of a week, your mother will complain that her tea tastes odd.

Who knew?

I've had Irn Bru. It's not a flavour I'm used to, so it always tastes odd to me.
But Irn Bru and tea...well...that's just a whole new level of orange strangeness!

Want to know what is worse? I read this post out loud to a friend of mine. Who now wants to try it... (even though she's definitely old enought to know better).

My response was "Not in my kitchen you don't!"

Visually, orange Fanta would be a good substitute.  :)

I was imagining Tang, for some reason.  Fanta makes a good visual too!
