  1. I fell down in an Indian restaurant on Friday night.
  2. The Other Half has gone to Hamburg again, leaving me bereft, lonely and bored.
  3. We are moving house in about four weeks.
  4. I am totally unprepared for this, and am currently at DefCon 2 in terms of panic.
  5. The Ex is being nice to me, which is both unsettling and a potential harbinger of doom.
  6. That's the first time I've used the phrase "harbinger of doom". I quite like it.
  7. I'm not going to be able to get this list to run to ten. This makes me uncomfortable.
  8. Oh. Unless I do this.
  9. Carry on.
  10. Get in!! I so rule. Etc.

now, if you were really cool* (comme moi), your 10 point list would in fact run to 11 points

* for 'cool', read 'stupid'

[see, when you are not blogging yourself, you can scour the interweb every three seconds trying to be the first to leave a comment on a brand new post - gravadlax, no?]

i'm trying not to say 'marvellous' and 'great' so often so i thought 'gravadlax' made a nice change

[think it's fish - you can get it in the ikea cafe at any rate]

I thought the official line was that "it was the carpet".

Although I think Other Half's behaviour later in the evening served to distract everyone from your earlier misadventure...

If you have to fall down, an Indian restaurant is a much more stylish place to do it than, say, at the top of the steps leading to the gents public loos in Reading or at an Orchestra rehearsal or in the middle of the biggest, most evil,scary roundabout in the world (Cairo). Completely imaginary examples of course.
[UC, Are you sure that stuff is actually fish? I've always wondered. I mean the meat balls are definately balls! But the gravadlax?]

Stupid tripping shoes. I hate when mine conspire to make me look drunk when I am not.

Why must OH go away? WHY? Time for a new stay-near-to-home-and-help-SG-pack job.

It's because of decimalisation. Before 1971, all lists had 12 items.

Bring back imperial lists, I say!

Hang in there sg, and for god's sake, hang on to the handrail!

Look on the bright side. He could be in Russia, minus 50C. I'd think your speech would come out as little ice drops tinkling down your front at that temperature.
