I think it's my turn to do the five things thing

1.  I learnt how to do bitly and tinyurl this morning.  I'm quite impressed even though I do say so myself.

2.  This afternoon I planted one and a half bags of seed potatoes.  I'm quite impressed even though I do say so myself.

3.  I've got another new job.  Two mornings a week, local, doing the archives for a charitable foundation.  That's six jobs I have now.  I must want my head looking at.

4.  I'm spending most of this "holiday" weekend typing up the studio script of a recording of When Miranda Met Bruce.  It will be quite funny when it's an hour long programme.  At the moment it lasts two hours forty minutes.  I'm getting RSI.  I must want my head looking at.

5.  I'm being nursemaid to my daughter who has a splitting migraine and only pink Migraleve.  Apparently after 2 pink you're then supposed to go on to yellow, which of course we don't have any of.  And it's Easter Sunday night, so forget that.  I'm quite impressed my head hasn't come out in sympathy.

Mutton dressed as lamb?

Oh dear. Camilla really needs help with her appearance:

Whilst the Queen of Jordan cunningly wears a dress which makes her look even thinner than she really is, Camilla's jacket looks like it was a potato sack yesterday and it was made for someone with shorter arms.
Oh I'm such a bitch.

On the labelling of food...

So, how hungry are you?

1) Not very
2) Quite peckish
3) Absolutely starving
4) I could eat a horse

See how overnight one's use of language can change.

I took some parmesan out of the fridge today.  At a quick glance I thought the label said "Made using unpleasant milk" which I thought was mildly appropriate given that not everyone likes parmesan.  A closer inspection revealed it was "unpasteurised" which was nowhere near so entertaining.
