5 Silly things I did this week

I occasionally do very silly things. This week has been worse than most. I’m not sure why.

  1. When making custard tarts, I carefully measured out the butter I needed, and went to put the remaining butter back in the fridge. Except I didn’t put it in the fridge. I put it in the bin.
  2. I went to empty the bin, and forgot to take my keys out with me, locking myself out. Luckily, I had a window open, so I was able to get back into my flat. I got covered in cobwebs and all sorts, and sprained my wrist with this little adventure.
  3. Put the timer on my washing machine so that it would do a load over night. Neglected to check the program, and woke up the next morning to washing that had only been through a dry cycle, and nothing else.
  4. Neglected to check if the bloke actually likes custard tarts (since he generally eats everything). Later found out that of all the sweet thingsĀ out there, he actually has a hatred of custard tarts. Oops! More for me, I guess!
  5. Forgot to add the tuna to the tuna pasta bake. I realised half way through, and added it later. Thankfully, it still tasted good.

5 Awesome Cover Songs

Some cover songs are so awesome, they just deserve a mention. Here are my current favourites:

Inspirational Quotes from Fiction

I love me some good inspirational quotes. Instead of going for the mainstream ones from random famous and occasionally awesome people, I thought I’d share my favourite ones from the various books I read that have stuck with me over the years. I’ll do my best to attribute the right quote to the right book. Corrections welcome!

  • “Until you learn to laugh at yourself, your life will always be a tragedy”. – Polgara the Sorceress, David Eddings.
  • “I don’t care about whose DNA has recombined with whose. When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you without flinching – they are your family.” – Proven Guilty, Jim Butcher
  • “We are always more afraid than we wish to be, but we can always be braver than we expect.” – Lord of Chaos, Robert Jordan
  • “You can’t go around building a better world for people. Only people can build a better world for people. Otherwise it’s just a cage.” – Witches Abroad, Terry Pratchett
  • “Just when you’ve squared up to the solemn realisation that life is a bitch, it turns around and does something nice, just to confuse you.” – The Better Mousetrap, Tom Holt

5 Things that add up to an awesome day

Sometimes, it’s the little things. Here are 5 that make a day awesome in my book:

  1. I get to play computer games
  2. I get to read a book
  3. I get to drink as much coffee as I want
  4. I have all the food in that I need to not have to venture outside (the graphics suck out there)
  5. I get to have a nap

It is very possible that I am easily pleased.
