It's grey and dull out there, rather like me.
I'm just in the mood for a good moan; I shall do it in a whiney querulous voice that is designed to grate upon the ear. Stand by.
Why am I getting so many spam comments, many in Russian or Polish?
Why does everyone suddenly seem to have weird and difficult word verification boxes on their comment forms?
Alice didn't know she had one. Do I have one?
If I do, why doesn't it screen out the Russian and Polish robots?
How do you get rid of it?
Why is new improved Blogger so horrible?
Why have so many of my Followed blogs disappeared from my list?
Where are my own Followers?
Why was Scooter dipping his paw into the pond this morning?
Why was the tiny mouse, that I rescued alive and well from under the dresser last night, found dead in the hall this morning?
Why is it so hard to re-set the electronic bathroom scales after we messed them up trying to weigh my sister's suitcase?
Why couldn't she or I do the most basic maths when trying to convert her weight plus a suitcase - in pounds - to the suitcase minus her weight - in kilos? So much for a moderately expensive education.
Why won't the mammoth pile of clean laundry transform itself from Ironing to Ironed?
Why have I put on all the weight I recently lost? Oops, I know the reason* for that one; ignore.
There's more. I shall spare you.
I think I have Februaryitis. Today, I would really, really, really like a warm sunny day to sit out in.
* yes, a clue
