It's been that sort of morning!


It's turning out to be that kind of damn day!
Last night, milk went sour after the shops shut.  Out early this am for more for breakfast; also needed eggs and pick-up prescription at the chemists.  Chemist first - no pills and they couldn't find the prescription. Damnation! Got the milk & eggs, then down to Drs to check.  The prescription had been collected yesterday afternoon by chemist's driver.  Double damnation! 
Back to chemist, who turned shop upsidedown but no presc.  i sat while they rang the other branches; maybe the temp driver had taken it to wrong one.  No, neither branch could find it - maybe still in the damn van!  My chemist are nice people and they promised me they would deliver my tablets later this afternoon.
Home to refuel!  Fabulous Kenyan coffee and a delicious crispy bacon & fried tomato sandwich - balance of the Universe restored!

I'm sorry you're having a bad/frustrating day... I hope the chemist has sent over your prescription by now!

That is a beautiful photo! Enough to uplift anyone's spirits.

It is a lovely photo, isn't it? Yes, the nice lady dropped off the packet on her way home about 4pm. Drs having a computer upgrade in a couple of weeks and are in a mess - didn't print off the list of my medications last time, so i had to go count pills! i rang them when i found i was going to run out of my blood pressure pills as well - they must have faxed another script to the chemist as those were in the packet too, along with an ointment i'd asked for. So eventually got everything i needed, good result.
Love your little icon :) and i don't really like pandas!

Not like pandas?! How can anyone not like pandas?

Anyway I'm glad you got all your meds w/out any more problems....

And I just saw this linked on twitter, were there a lot of scalpers at the Olympics? http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/2d26100ce3/the-olympic-ticket-scalper-with-patrick-stewart-ryan-lochte-simon-pegg-maisie-williams

They are cute as babies, but most animal babies are cute, so i guess it's because i think they don't come across as an intelligent animal exactly... Not like the amazingly clever leopard or crafty & intelligent monkeys, you know?
Yes, i saw Sir Pat's bit of indulgence :) And no, haven't heard any thing about scalpers. They may have been some metaphorically skulking in the bushes near the main stadium but from what i hear they weren't easy to replicate. Nobody offered us any anyway!

It is true that all baby animals are cute....
I guess my fondness for pandas came from the years I worked in Washington, DC where hoping the pandas in the Washington Zoo would successfully mate was always a major news story followed by everyone in both political parties.

I bought a ticket (WAY over priced) for the US Open Tennis Tournament from a scalper once... I had gotten a really good deal on most of my tickets, but at the last minute I had a chance to go a day early, and I REALLY wanted to get in!
I can't really regret it, I had a fantastic day.
