Zero Tolerance

I'm in absolute bitch mode today. The sugar withdrawal, monthly hormonal rage and remarkable idiocy around me has landed all at once and I can't even stand myself, much less anyone else.

And so I'll spare us all and just leave some newsie bits for your...whatever.

Mt. Etna erupts (didn't it used to be spelled Aetna?)

At least it wasn't a customer:

Don't worry about it. Everyone I know is in a bad mood as well.
It's the traditional post-Christmas (sorry, sorry, for you folks in the USA) post-Holiday depression. It will pass. If you're going sugar-free, can I recommend bacon.It always makes me feel better, well that and whisky.

TSB- Haha! Bacon is cooking as I write! Sadly, whisky's out of the scene until April, too.

Oh dear....sorry you are out of sorts. Changing the diet can really do a number on you. Interesting tid bits though, exploding volcanoes, expiring Chinese cooks and rioting Irish not to mention buildings full of nothing but hot air. Wow. Isn`t there some kind of drug you can take for the withdrawal symptoms? lol

Lawless- I wish! It would help if I could sleep, but you know how that is. "Twas the night before Aunt Flo, and all thru the house not a creature was sleeping cuz Mama's a louse."

Oh Gary, you're making me smile ear to ear. You, the wee folks in your garden and Penny, the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star, are magic. xx
