"The Plastic Bag Incident" and other random stuff.

First of all I was inspired by Ant HERE, to write this post.

"The Plastic Bag Incident"
Years ago, I was working on a building project and had to buy some MDF board from the local hardware store. I got out to my car and popped open the boot. It was a very windy day and while I struggled with the awkward piece of MDF, half a dozen plastic bags escaped out of the boot and then went on a wild rampage through the car park and out into the street.
As I had both hands full there was nothing I could do, but shove the board into the boot and beat a hasty retreat. While waiting to pull out of the entrance driveway, I witnessed one car being pursued by two of the feral bags, another wrapped around someone’s ariel, one had flown high off to distant buildings and I swear I saw a couple graffiting a nearby wall.
Well not really, but the other ones I did.  It was forever then known as "The Plastic Bag Incident"
Never trust plastic bags. Environmentally damaging and prone to wild rampages.

Hubby doesn’t believe me when I insist that I.E is plotting to make me upgrade. Ever since I.E 9 got released my I.E has been playing up.
Messing with me.
But I’ll show it.....

I highly recommend saying a random word while you sneeze. For example..
Today, Son and I were sitting quietly, while he wrote a sentence for school. I could feel a huge sneeze brewing, and then, as I did so, blurted out:
“BANANA PHONE!!!!”
Highly amusing. And liberating.

  5. I don't trust plastic bags either. One got stuck under my car and as the car got hot it smelled like my engine was melting! I drove to the service station afraid that my car was about to explode and they looked under it and told me it was just a plastic bag - embarrassing.

  12. A plastic bag can suffocate small children, puppies, and slow people. All plastic bags must be melted.
