Every so often, we have these little realizations about things in our lives and our own little corner of the world. I don't mean the big things like global warming or Pluto's demotion. Something on the order of: on second thought, rearranging the bosses office furniture probably wasn't the best way to show how motivated I can be...

Of course, I'll start...

People with really, really bad colds (the can't-hear-taste-or-smell-anything strength cold) should not be allowed anywhere near a kitchen even to cook for themselves. Okay, they can cook for themselves as they can't taste anyway. But, they should not cook for anyone else. I have learned this in the last week.

Last night's pork with peanut sauce was a fluke and I was told it was delicious. I thought so too - but I could have been wrong. Everything else has been a tastebud's nightmare. I now have a chicken soup on the stove and, unless the veggies are really thirsty for salt, it's probably going to suck big time. It's been so long since I've had a cold, I'd forgotten what altered or nonexistent taste was like. A little virus has won. It's not fair!!!!

Here endeth my little realization for today...

I was going to say that people who take the subway should not be allowed to carry those long umbrellas - but that's not a new realization. How about: Bingo is actually pretty fun, especially since they passed the no-smoking law. Came close to wining $100 (OK - 4 numbers left)! Plus, little old ladies are absolute geniuses when it comes to Bingo. We were greatful to have a nice lady next to us to let us know what on gods green earth was going on.

Every so often I have a lightbulb moment where I realise that drinking lots of alcahol makes you feel like crap the next day.

For work, no less! Times like that make me appreciate my job all the more.
