St Jude is coming out.

Well guess what Santa, His Lordship got me for Christmas... a new drive, yes that's it sweeties a new laptop. Yippee no more being tied to a plug socket, the battery fried the day before my last university assignment was due in. I nearly fried too. No more waiting for half an hour for the tinterwebby to load up, this one is like lightening, it's great. There is one thing though, my blog doesn't look the same on this system, the background is blank, it always used to have pretty swirly patterns on it... does it still look that way to you?

Oh and I have a confession to make... I think we've known each other for long enough, don't you. The picure above is actually closer to the real me than the brunette in my header. Yes I am a blonde, and, urm I have never figured out how to change the hair colour in my header. OK, ok forget the blonde jokes, I probably started most of them  ;0 )

And finally as I know that some of you have young ones venturing out into the festive party season for the first time so here are some little pearls of wisdom you might like to pass onto them.

a) Don't stick your fingers in plug sockets, it makes your hair frizzy and then it's a bugger to style.

b) Always make sure you're wearing clean underwear when you go out. You may get hit by a bus. (Mm that's ok if you don't see it coming. I have to be honest if I saw a bus heading towards me, well I don't think I'm alone on that one..)

c) Girls, only shave the bottom half of your legs on a first date. It's better than a chastity belt!

d) Boys, a quick tickle with a damp flannel doesn't cut it. Pheromones are not the same as B.O.

e) It's never a good idea to boost the contents of your bra with socks, especially if your dad was wearing them the day before.

f) The first time you sneak off to get drunk don't drink Creme de Menthe or the antifreeze lookilike alchopop. The vomit stains are virtually impossible to get off the carpet.

Have fun.

good to see y'all again, sugarpie! i see a white background now. love the rules for holidaze partying! xoxoxox

Beth said...

So, you were (and are) a blonde bombshell – not surprising that you have such pearls of wisdom to share! ;)
Congrats on the fabulous Christmas gift…

Green-Eyed Momster said...

Congratulations on the great gift. Great minds really do think alike because I received one too. I'm not even going to worry about how they paid for it either. For all I know it's stolen! ha ha ha!

Thanks for all the great advice!

Happy New Year from our family to yours.

I'm seeing pretty pictures of stone-coloured flowers but then I've been overdosing on Martmite-flavoured cashews.

We always assumed that clean underpants made the wearer invulnerable to accidents.

Lee said...

All good advice!

St Jude said...

Savannah - I suppose the white background will have to do as I have no idea how to fix it.

Beth - blondes certainly know how to have fun ;0)

GEM - just take the pressie and run. LOL And a Happy New Year to you and yours.

kevin - no it's not the marmite flavoured cashews that was the background I had. With the underpants I think you have to wear them over your clothes!

Lee - the rules made sense to me.

Hello St Jude,

First, congrats on your new laptop (one of my favorite toys).

Second, thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.

Finally, I have no young ones but still, I found your pearls of wisdom quite funny.

Best wishes to you and yours as we all venture into 2010.


Charlie said...

All this time, SJ, and I never pictured you as a blonde. I was thinking more along the lines of Martha's color, mousey brown.

I'm jellus of your new notebook, but you're deserving of it I'm sure. Santa must have a "thing" for you.

And not marmite again!

Meg said...

Excellent advice. I so used to do that only shaving the bottom half of the legs thing when I was dating. Actually, I still do that. Oh, my poor husband.

Pete said...

and what laptop is it?

St Jude said...

U - thank you. It was so nice to meet you I will be stopping by again... regularly.

Charlie - Oh sweetie, I doubt there is anything 'mousy' about either Martha or I. I don't know about Santa having a thing for me.. I certainly have a thing for him.

Meg - trust me after 33 years with his Lordship, there still has to be some mystery. Treat every date with him as a first date. He will love you forever.

Pete - Oh giddy aunt now you are asking, it's urm black with lovely swirly patterns on the front.. no wait a minute it's a HP, urm something or other. It is very lovely, trust me!

Pete said...

St Jude you are meant to supply. professor speed, memory cache, hard disk and model number :D

St Jude said...

Pete - urm, urm... what language are you speaking?? But actually now you come to mention it, my old laptop had all of that information on it, this one is a bit 'poncy' and doesn't give the informtion readily. Let me have a look and get back to you. Don't wait up, I may be some time.
