I have had a Sh*tter of a morning.

There was no milk left and no coffee (I repeat NO COFFEE!)!!! I made the fiancee late for work, because I could not choose the right jacket! I spilt coffee on the carpet. I put on pants that were too long and hence stood on them all the way from the carpark to the office. I wore sh*t shoes that have floppy heel bits that I keep standing on (so combined with the long pants, when I walk I look like one of my legs is shorter, or a sped (apologies for the lack of political correctness here, but I am emotional dammit!) as I try to walk without letting the shoes fall off my heels where I will then stand on the heel again and look like more of a sped). Then I dropped the keys at the foot of the office door, after my shoulders were almost falling of from carrying my laptop, 2 litres of milk, 500g of coffee, my lunch box, and (cover your ears coffee lovers) black instant coffee in a thermos cup (that's right instant coffee, I was that desperate to improve my morning).

You want more??

Feeling a little more relieved now, have had real coffee, have read my daily installment of, and have answered my emails. It took me until now to realise that this morning was the effect of hormones, I am almost positive! This realisation came about when I wrote an email to my Uncle, who is currently in Japan, as I had heard he may not be able to make it back in time for our wedding. :( I was devastated, he is the only of my Uncle's that lives in Perth, my favourite uncle, we are really close, and I got all teary when I was writing him an email.

Sooo yeah you could say I am a little emotional, so you know what that means, tomorrow there will be a visit from Crampy McCramps, and then the time of the month where I just want to shower for 5/6 days straight.

Oh, the joy of being a woman!

Daily Morning Coffee Bog

Now, I know this may be a bit of a sensitive subject for some, but I think that it is a phenomenon which extends beyond my humble bathroom behaviour. The morning coffee bog, I think, is something that happens to many of us coffee drinkers, and that we don't really like to admit to it. :)

Every morning we suck down our couple of cups of caffiene and then after an hour or so we are running to the loo with much haste, we have all of a sudden been taken over by the incredible urge to s**t. It is so horrible, even your own nose begins to shrink and try to retreat back inside your head. I wonder what it is about the coffee that makes us do this, and why we continue to drink coffee, even though we know it makes us do this??

The fiance told me many times that in his old office he sometimes couldn't step foot into the bathroom after about 10am, as the entire office had just gone to perform their ritualistic coffee bogs. How gross!!! This is how I know that I am not alone. He reckons that these people don't have enough fibre in their diet and this is why. But I am not so sure because he thinks this doesn't happen to him, yet we both eat the same foods and I have a ritualistic coffee bog daily. Unless he is ashamed of his daily coffee bog! Oh my god, he is a closet coffee bogger!! Haa haa.

For thos who are not Australian and haven't picked up what a bog's an Aussie word for the loo, or sometimes what you do in the loo. There are many kinds of bogs, the After Grog Bog (ABG) and the newly invented Morning Coffee Bog (MCB). Are there any more I wonder??

This topic is Doctor Karl worthy I think! What is with the MCB??

Guilt about Working from Home

So these days I feel guilty quit alot about my new working situation.

I think it is because I am enjoying myself so much! I get to be a lot more relaxed about my working hours, I can work later, earlier, on the weekends if I want to have some time off during the week, but I still get all of my work done. So really there is nothing to feel guilty about.

I think it is because I have been so well trained in the beleif that the normal working week, 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday is how it should work. But in reality there are many people who don't work that way and do very well for themselves!

Maybe it will take a little while for the guilt to pass, and for me to get used to this fairly new arrangement. :)
