Everyday I give my best efforts, If I don't succeed I run the risk of failure!

It’s been a pleasant couple of days, as readers will know I covered the shop on Saturday, today I phoned to hint at the takings for the day but had my thunder stolen when told that she’d checked the reading when she started this morning. Still considering I took more in one day than she took over the whole of last week, I rightfully claimed bragging rights. There a bit of friendly competition going between me and Sue. When I cover for her I really want to have a good day sales wise. So presenting her with a high end of day record is always nice. Unfortunately it doesn’t take her long to steal bragging rights back. I think I have to wait until August now for another day so she’ll have plenty of time to set me a target.

This Wednesday I shall be heading off to the 2010 toy fair at Olympia. Apparently I’m being picked up at 6 in the morning. Dear god that’s early! I’ll have to have an early night tomorrow. The good thing is that the journey there and back will give me a good chance to have a proper play with the sat nav on my phone, and Google earth. Silly I know but fun all the same. I’ve also worked out that Olympia is only a mile and a half from the natural history museum, so if we leave the toy fair a bit early I could pop in quickly. The mate who I’m travelling to London with has also mentioned the possibility of visiting Forbidden Planet. I haven’t been there for years. It’s no longer on Tottenham Court Road, it’s moved to Shaftsbury Ave. I’ve seen a few things that have raised my interest, time will tell.

I was buying stuff for Obi Kat today; it occurred to me that the little fella’s quite a fussy little thing. If I buy him something like Tesco’s own brand he’ll turn his nose up at him. However if I get him Felix or Whiskas he can’t get enough of the stuff. It’s the same with DTWP, buy him supermarket own brand and he looks at it as if to say “I ain’t eating that muck!” but put pricey butter roasted chicken down for him and it’s munched up in no time. What puzzles me about this is that they won’t eat cheap food cos it may not taste nice, but they spend an awful lot of time licking their bums! How does that work?

In closing I shall leave you with this little snippet to ponder;

If a cat always lands on its feet, and buttered bread always lands butter side down, what would happen if you tied buttered bread on top of a cat?

My dog does not eat pricey butter roasted chicken he has the cheap diced chicken that comes in big bags for 4 quid from Iceland you cheeky sod, having said that though if I had the money to buy him pricey butter roasted chicken I would but sadly for him I don't.
Also NO FAIR you can't go to FP without me cos I want to get DTWP his bone shaped
Ok so he is a teensy bit pampered

Forbidden Planet isn't what it once was. Time was that it was the only place to buy obscure stuff. Nowadays it's nice to go to look at things, but it has very little you can't buy (very) cheaper elsewhere.

hat's off to the clever little toad that changed my password. You've obviously got nothing better to do than mess around with people stuff. Were you looking for something in particular? next time post a comment asking me, I'll answer if I can.

what password was that?

kalon said...

the password for my blogger account or the google since both are connected. I don't know how they did it, but I hope that the next time they download something they get hit with the latest version of the Chernobyl virus, Apparently it now effects the bios and flashing does't sort it, so it means a new motherboard.

I'd say that the Welsh Wibbly Wobber wants to know what goes on in other people's lives coz her own life is so boring that she has to know other people's business.
