Id prefer snakes cosmo..

now im having a "dog " issue fecking thing never shuts up..
`nother time I was rushing out to work, out drivin on the freeway, and I feel something wriggling under the arch of my foot, I was in heavy and fast flowing traffic and couldn`t get to stop, tryin to concentrate on the road and wriggling my foot in my boot tryin to move it around, I was imagining all sorts , was it a small snake, a big spider. as soon as I got to work, off with the boot and out pops a fairly big cockroach, the flyin type , its wings caused all the movement.

It's a bit nippy for that here this morning. Anyway, it was a false alarm - I found one that wasn't too bad and used that.

Kate just jump up and down, you will eventually dry and save yourself a visit to the gym. Enjoy the jumping!!!

MK you have just reminded me of a very funny story my boss told me years ago. I used to live in Cabinteely and sometimes I used to get a lift home from my boss, if he kept me late, as the 86 bus was not frequent. We used to go via Glenamuck Road.

In those days, the houses on that road all had hedges and trees and things and were very private. It was a long narrow road. The 63 bus used to go down there and turn at Mart Lane. It was always a single decker bus.

There was a well known athlete, who was retired from athletics at that time, living on Glenamuck Road. The bus stop was outside his house. When the weather was very good, sometimes he used to go out into his garden early in the morning scantily clad, nor not clad at all. He never had to worry about privacy because of the hedges and the fact that the bus was always a single decker.

Anyway, one morning the sun was brilliant in the blue sky and the weather was just fantastic, so he headed out to his garden as usual, but this time with nothing on at all. He stood there and had a good stretch and looked up at the sky and thanked God he was alive. Then he became aware of people looking at him.

It happened that that day the normal 63 bus broke down and for the first time ever, it was replaced with a double decker bus. All the people on the top of the bus were looking down at him stretching au natural in his garden.
So Katie be careful about drying yourself outside.
