An annoying situation

So I was in the shower, doing the kinds of things one does in showers, when someone rang the doorbell. I considered jumping out of the shower and wrapping a towel round myself to answer the door, but decided it probably wasn't either justified or decent. A few minutes later, the water was turned off; I guess the workmen must have been ringing my doorbell to warn me they were planning to do this.

As a result, I have wet, shampoo-y hair and I can't do anything about it. When they've turned the water off in the past it's been for half an hour at a time. I more or less dried my body and put on a dressing gown that I don't really mind getting a bit damp, but I'm not really dry because my hair is dripping all over me. I can't even make myself a cup of tea to make up for the annoyance.


Today is the 32nd day, making four complete weeks and 4 days of the Omer.

Roll your own compliments

This is based on an idea I got from jpallan. It's a bit like one of those memes where the poster gives everyone compliments, only in reverse: you get to pick your own compliment! Radios, not ticky boxes, cos I'm mean like that.

I may or may not actually tell you whether you're right, and I may or may not get round to writing more individualized and specific compliments. I do genuinely like all of you though; I don't have anyone on my friends list who isn't there for some reason!
