Good night world.....



Oh geez...
With blurry eyes this morning, your avatar pic looked like a hand with the middle finger sticking up...and your message of "Good night world...", well it made me laugh really hard!
(thanks, I needed that)

Good morning all!
Yesterday was so stressful that the word stressful is completely inadequate. I am sitting here feeling overwhelmed, but really pleased that I found something to make me laugh under the circumstances.
Bless you Shed Family. I always find what I need here.


I will be around for a while reading what I've missed.

Hi hunny! Yes, "I can see clearly now..."
(I know I'm awake when I start using song lyrics to reply, lol)

How's your day going so far? Anything new or exciting in your world?

Nothing particularly much going on today, but tomorrow... tomorrow is a different affair.

As I have mentioned before, I live in the county of Essex, on the North shore of the Thames Estuary. A very good friend of mine, part of my established social circle, has met a woman who lights him up like an armoured column under fire from an A-10 Warthog, and she lives in Kent, which is the other side of the River Thames. She is, however, moving tomorrow. And so it was, that a few weeks ago, the call to arms went up, or rather, the call requesting the use of several pairs of arms went up. She is moving to our county, in fact, to our town, which means the disgustingly sweet experience of seeing those two together, will be more frequent. As much as I am somewhat averse to being overloaded with the diabetes inducingly saccharine behaviour of the pair, I am also duty bound, as a friend, to lend a hand in the maintenance of the happiness of both those individuals. So, tomorrow I will rouse at an ungodly time in the morning, so that myself, the smitten friend, and another associate of ours, can pack ourselves into a van, hot foot it to Kent, and retrieve his lady love and her personal effects, and move them all back across the river, to our town.

It will be some significant effort to make happen, since we will be moving the contents of a two bedroom house, with only a Transit van, as opposed to a drop tail truck, limiting the tonnage we can move on any one trip. That being said, we are to a man, capable, hardy folk, so no doubt we shall complete the task with time to spare for a beer or three afterward, regardless of limitations placed in our way. I am, oddly enough, looking forward to the exertion, and the adventure. Tis a rare thing for me to leave the confines of my town, leave alone my county, for any other reason than to head to a rock festival. So if anything, it will be a welcome change of pace from the glacial progress I am making in my own business, and personal life. It will be nice to put my shoulder to some hard, physical, and rapid work, in the absence of a flourishing trading environment in the professional sphere.

I hope the weather holds, of course, because no one likes sitting on a damp sofa.

Aww, you're a good friend.

I've found that helping people move goes better if they've packed their stuff well. Nothing worse than arriving to load a van only to find that you have to pack it all before you can transport it.

It's good that the 'love birds' are sweet when together. I'd rather be around that than the couple who are screaming at each other, lol.

Hopefully the move will go well and you can all relax and enjoy a few drinks together after.
(sorry, still a little brain dead here waiting for the caffeine to bring me back to life)

Sorry for the delay - I meant to reply to you yesterday but my device shut down on me in mid-sentence.



either you believe we die and that's it, your light in the universe winks out and you are nothing but a biochemical machine, or you believe there's something more.

I chose more. Didn't know what it might be, but everything in me screamed that this crazy thing we call life is not all there is.


That reminds me of Pascal's Wager. One of the most brilliant minds in History. Blaise Pascal was both a scientist and a man of faith, and his intellect matched that of Einstein. He argues in favour of having Faith using an argument very similar to the one you posted.

G'morning swanne! Your conversation with Shep reminds me of a quote from the movie Signs with Mel Gibson.
This is the last bit, it's a long quote:
"See, what you have to ask yourself is what kind of person are you? Are you the kind that sees signs, sees miracles? Or do you believe that people just get lucky? Or, look at the question this way. Is it possible that there are no coincidences?"

wiki quotes - movie Signs

I'm still the person who sees signs.

Oh, you could not have hit the nail more firmly about the head, with regard to the importance of good packing.

The last move I helped with was a total nightmare, for precisely this reason. Not only had next door to nothing been packed away by the time we arrived to help move things, but none of the furniture, or the house for that matter, had been cleaned. I was breathing an atmosphere that tasted like a sewer, and tickled the throat entirely too much, while time had to be taken to break down the beds, the sofa, the shelves and bookcases, computer tables... The thing was the most disgusting work I have ever undertaken without charging for it. The computers came free of their mountings with an audible pop, as the layer of grime which had held them in place, was finally overcome by force beyond its ability to withstand, the furniture came away from the flooring with a crack, for the same reason.... It was a biologically hazardous situation, and I very nearly vomited several times throughout the day. It was deeply unpleasant, to say the least of it.

However, this move will be different. For a start, my friend, who has been in that precise position before, was at the residence last weekend, cleaning everything and helping his lady pack. According to him, all the furniture is clean and empty, ready for loading. All the sundry items that accumulate in a dwelling over time, have been packed into boxes, all the clothing into bags, the delicate items have been protected with the requisite materials, bubble wrap and so on, so all that is left to do, is the manhandling of these things into the van, and subsequently, into the new abode.

It should be a snag free affair, given that all the really tedious, and disgusting work has been completed already.

Oh, glad to hear they are prepared and ready to go.
I've had to be involved in dirty chaotic moves in the past and it makes you think before offering to help again.
Besides, the faster the move...the more time for drinks and merriment afterwards, lol.

Good morning Timely! *waving*
Too tired to write any walls of text myself, but always enjoy reading True's words.
You can ransack the donuts, just not the pixies! (Night Star will yell at you for that)

If you've never seen it, you should try to watch it at some point. I love it so much that I bought the dvd and still watch it randomly when I'm having a 'down day' (laid up with my back).
It's written and directed by M. Night Shyamalam and I always enjoy his movies.

Indeed! Merriment post move will be very much welcome, especially since it is traditional for my clan to celebrate the weekly event that is Silly Saturday. This, obviously, is not to be confused with Whacky Wednesday, or Freaky Friday.

Hahaha...

I'm a TrueBrit gangsta, and I'm here to say
That the English language has now gone astray

Dangling participles make my hair turn grey
Feed me ale and rum if you want me to stay!

A British rap would likely have me in stitches!
