I'm off work today, with a horrible cold that kept me up all night. I tried to catch up on my sleep today, until the cat decided the best place to curl up would be right on my head.
So, I'm lethargic, and have actually turned to computer games to pass the time, I'm currently playing Lego Batman on the PS2. So,
Question 1: What's your favourite ever computer/video game or game character? I love tetris as much as the next person, but Head and Heels (above) will always have a special place in my heart. Games don't seem to be as much fun as they used to be, but maybe that's cos I'm under the weather, so Q2: Any good tips about dealing with a cold or lurgee? What do you do to comfort yourself when ill? Comfort food? I had some Heinz Oxtail soup, and that helped.
Recently I bought a pair of parrot candlesticks for the mantelpiece in my lounge, turns out they're too wide. I am seriously considering getting the mantelpiece made larger to accommodate them. So, Q3 - what's been your most impractical purchase? Possibly one that got you in deep trouble with yr other half?
I totally couldn't sleep last night, and even my favoured trick of listening to a really dull podcast to get me off to sleep didn't work (it was a geeky science type podcast incase you're wondering, called The Skeptics Guide To The Universe) - Q4 - What do you do to get to sleep?
So, for this EOTWQ not to be too much of a bummer, Q5 - Tell us a joke?
