Thursday Already

Goodness me it's Thursday already & I haven't blogged for 2 days. Not because I have been rushed off my feet or anything like that. Nothings been happening. Got up, went to work, went to bed blah, blah & that's it.

I have seen Gem a couple of times this week which has been lovely. Spoke to Lisa on the phone which reminds me I must phone her again to see how she went on in her lectures. Elena's still loving school and now on about joining a Break Dancing Club after school on Wednesdays!! Not sure she knows what break dancing is lol.

Watched House again yesterday, it was fab!!! AND I learned that Hugh Laurie has signed up for another 4 years ~ get in lol.

Not sure where Chris has gone :O( She hasn't replied to my e-mail but that could be because she's busy. I suppose the reason I'm a bit worried is that I sent her a parcel & I don't know whether she's received it or not.

We are still all looking forward to our visit up North :o) Can't wait to see everyone again.

This from the PTS website, made me giggle :O)

There is a factory in Northern Minnesota which makes the Tickle Me Elmo toys. The toy laughs when you tickle it under the arms.

Well, Lena is hired at The Tickle Me Elmo factory and she reports for her first day promptly at 8:00 am.

The next day at 8:45 am there is a knock at the Personnel Manager's door. The Foreman throws open the door and begins to rant about the new
employee. He complains that she is incredibly slow and the whole line is backing up, putting the entire production line behind schedule.

The Personnel Manager decides he should see this for himself, so the 2 men march down to the factory floor. When they get there the line is so backed up that there are Tickle Me Elmo's all over the factory floor and they're really beginning to pile up. At the end of the line stands Lena surrounded by mountains of Tickle Me Elmo's. She has a roll of plush Red fabric and a huge bag of small marbles.

The 2 men watch in amazement as she cuts a little piece of fabric, wraps it around two marbles and begins to carefully sew the little package between Elmo's legs.

The Personnel Manager bursts into laughter. After several minutes of hysterics he pulls himself together and approaches Lena .

'I'm sorry,' he says to her, barely able to keep a straight face, 'but I think you misunderstood the instructions I gave you yesterday...'

'Your job is to give Elmo two test tickles.
