Things Domestic Oubliette Learnt since she last posted yesterday...

1) Don't go out for a few drinks with writing buddy and leave hubby alone with baking Christmas Cake.

2) Don't forget that the recipe you're using to bake your cake was written long before fan assisted ovens were even thought of.

3) Don't cry when it burns.

4) Don't go on a crusade over the little things in your child life.

5) When they want you to drop it - sometimes its just right to drop it.

6) Don't stay up watching 'There's Something About Mary' till after midnight. (No matter how funny it is.)

7)Sometime missing your writing targets isn't such a bad thing. Maybe the 900 words you came up with instead of the 4000 you were meant to, could be the best 900 words ever.

8) Sometimes, even if you didn't get slaughtered in a budget doesn't mean it was an okay budget.

9) Though, sometimes things just aren't fair.

10) There is one instance of the phrase 'domestic oubliette' other than my blog on the world wide web. There are no new ideas.

Okay - I get it - another game - one of those things is not something you learned in the last 24 hours or so and we've to guess... well I think it's no 6, no wait it's 5, no 5, it's never right to drop it, you've to hang on to it like a small terrier - that's the fib... do i win?
The word verification is "Unbooped" the best one I've seen yet.

Of course you win Niamh.

Well done for spotting that.

Well, actually no.

The lie was actually no. 3 - I didn't cry as such, just was very, very, cross.

Best word verification EVER. Even better than when I got Fanta.

i think i'll just go around collecting word verification words and try and fit em all into a poem, or make sense of them somehow... Having said that, this comment's word is "hareo" - so, maybe not then,

You could narrow this down a bit D'oub. How does 'Don't get out of the bed in the morning' grab ya?
