The Unborn And Other Such Good Stuff

Yesterday Jim and I watched "The Unborn". the critical reviews are pretty awful for this movie, but I have to say... I quite enjoyed it. The plot was a bit fluffy, and the acting more so, but for a late night scary movie it wasn't that bad. Made Jim jump anyway!

I've discovered the plus side to this diet (not that there have actually been any real downsides, it's a liberal diet!); fruit smooties. They are absolutely delicious. Weird combo of strawberries, apples, banana, plus a little natural yoghurt was actually the best one. Double yum.

Not looking forward to work. There's no doubt about it: I'm not a 9-5 person. And before anyone suggests any other helpful suggestions about jobs I'd like that aren't 9-5, I think I'm just not a work person. I find it pointless. Ultimately I think the only way of making money that I would enjoy, that isn't totally silly and lazy, would be working for myself. But the questions are: 1) do I have the skills to work for myself? I'm a tough/rubbish boss after all and 2) what would I do? Last I checked there's not a huge niche for a reality telly loving, zoology obsessed, Fortean nutcase out there. If I could just persuade everyone in the country to give me 10p I think I'd be ok.

  1. I'll happily send you 10p to start the ball rolling if you want...

    How about hiring yourself out as a tree for birds to sit on? (or should that be shit on?) :-p

    Re: smoothies, be VERY careful about sugar content. Good-for-you 100%-fruit Smoothies are deceptively high in fructose and can undermine a lot of diet effort!

    (BTW with my professional hat on, re a previous blog entry I feel derelict in my duty if I didn't point out to you that the correct spelling of a certain word is "pallaver")

  2. That's actually very useful! The Blogger spell check is not helpful when it comes to real English. Pallaver. Very good.

    I know, I think the same thing about the smoothies but I'm not really on this diet to lose weight. My main concern is just eating a little less rubbish.

    I think I'd make a good tree, but the real money is in providing shade to people during the summer. And a wind break in winter. I know this because people actually do use me for those purposes! LOL
