mornin lj... I'm just a sitt'en and freez'en at the office... This is going to be a busy week.
I was rereading my post about the dinner party from hell last night and in my zeal to be all large about serving 17 people, I neglected to mention ...
Just as I was laying the platter with all the satays on the counter my 9 year old nephew reaches up to the drink counter to get a little grape crush... (know where this is going?) So he half opens the top, turns his head to check the approaching hip bone of one of the many adults that wander around at these things totally ignoring the kids and ends up moving the hand that is bracing the 1.5 litre bottle (for you yanks... that's the big bottle). The half opened - new - bottle of grape crush leaves the counter and lands with a solid thud. Of course the 'thud' is followed by a tremendous hissing sound and everything within 5 feet (360 degrees) is painted with purple pop. Yippee....
Actually, I fricking hate those plastic giant bottles of pop. Nobody wants the last third of the bottle - flat, they're a menace (re-read that last paragraph), they're a bitch to carry home from the store and a complete pig on fridge space.
The only good thing they're good for is doing the Blues Clues hurricane experiment. If you do not know what that is, or worse still, do not even know what "Blues Clues" is... you are not living your life to the fullest... and all I have to say to that is "paprika floats".
