The Epic Adventures of Edmund and Suzi – Part 1

Monday, July 26th, 2010

So the past few days have been particularly difficult in the land of Suzi and Edmund, and so they decided that they were indeed in need of some epic cheering up; and hence they decided to do lots of fun things to keep themselves occupied.

First on the agenda was the initial ‘Operation-Cheer-Up’, which could only really mean one thing…movies, food and beer…simple but effective ways of making yourself feel better after a long day. And so during their watching of movie gems, such as Office Space, Evolution and Gremlins, they decided that their Guinness was incredibly normal and ordinary, and hence needed some sprucing up.

So they added ice cream. Yup, they made Guinness Ice Cream Floaters. Which were actually rather nice, except for leftover foam at the end *shudder*. At first they just looked like normal Guinness but with a lot of head, however if you gave them a stir then they began to look a lot more like something caramel based. Yet they certainly did not taste as sweet as they looked.

With the odd concoctions finished, they set about carrying on their movie night by chowing down on crisps and sweets until they could no longer keep their eyes open and headed to their beds.

Rising the next day, they found themselves with a whole lot of energy, and not much to do with it…but then again, that’s a tale for next time.

Where There is Pain, There is Wisdom…

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

I’ve gotta say, I think the most painful part of growing up is getting your wisdom teeth.

My first three sets were perfectly fine to come through, a bit uncomfortable, but nothing special.¬†However my last set is coming through at the moment, and with the gum ripping fun I have managed to get an infection. And with my luck, it’s not just a normal infection; it’s the kind of infection that needs hardcore antibiotics, which if used for longer than a few days then you can get a hairy tongue or other disgusting side effects.

So I want to know, with all this pain, where is my wisdom? Will it arrive one day in the mail with an ‘if undelivered please return to the wisdom fairy’ sticker on the back? It may look like junk mail, that many people throw away. It could say ‘CONGRATULATIONS! You’ve got wisdom!’ and tell you that if you respond within 30 days, you will get a free gift thrown in; I’m hoping for a high street gift voucher.

But too much wisdom at one time could overload my mind, so it would probably need to be split up into smaller portions so that my brain could handle the extra wisdom; it isn’t a very complex brain anyway so it’s better to ease it in rather than force a whole load of information in there.

It could be in the form of a monthly voucher that I can claim by putting it under my pillow at night. Then the wisdom fairy will download it right into my brain as I sleep. I can wake up in the morning feeling refreshed, energised and finally being able to recall pi to 50 decimal places; sadly I can only recall it to 10 decimal places as of this moment (3.1415926535).

Now some people might be sceptical and say that you don’t get any wisdom from growing extra teeth, it’s just a name given to them because of when they begin to grow (when you are wiser than a child). But why would you be forced to go through such pain and discomfort if there is nothing good to look forward to at the end of it. However those sceptics are obviously wrong, and probably don’t believe in the tooth fairy either!

I’ll keep you all updated on whether I get my extra wisdom or not. But for now, I’m going to go sit in front of my letterbox and wait patiently, with my antibiotics, for my letter or voucher from the wisdom fairy.

If anyone else has either gotten their wisdom, or has any theories on how it will arrive then please let me know, by either commenting on this blog post, or adding me on Facebook/Twitter.

Maybe I Will Change…

…for the better that is.

Since I will have access to wordpress on both my phone and my boyfriend’s phone, I should be able to update my blog more often. I say should be as although i’m a PA, and hence meant to be organised, I can never guarantee where the real world will take me.

But a quick update, I’m now a university graduate with a 2:1 in Drama and Creative Writing and am enjoying my new adult life to the extreme with my awesome friends, family and garden furniture.

Hopefully there will be more to come…but for now here’s me, and my good friend Sean. Visit his blog here because he’s awesome!
