Am in work today. Still feel a bit woozy from the meds, but felt okay to drive. Helps that I've stopped taking the co-codamol (I'll probably have some again over the weekend, but as it was zonking me out so effectively I think it makes more sense to stick to the ibuprofen and give myself a chance of doing a decent day's work).

Was slightly late getting in as I overslept a bit due to having a vague headache (which still doesn't seem to want me to shake it off. Annoying little so-and-so). Also seem to have mislaid my work swipe card. I know I had it last Wednesday, but it's somewhere missing in the mounds of unsorted stuff around the house. Had better find it this evening or I shall face stern looks from the people on the reception desk. :-/

I'm not actually going to post a TMI post about the fact that three of the meds I'm taking regularly have the same side-effect and right now I'm suffering the consequences big time. Apart from anything else, it wouldn't be fair on anyone reading this on Twitter or Facebook, who don't have the benefit of the LJ-Cut I'd put on it. So, you'll just have to make do with this post instead.

I've never yet put together a list of those moments in pop music which I consider the most insanely cheerful and upbeat things ever, but if I did, I imagine that Brian May's guitar solo in Holly Johnson's Love Train would probably be close to the top of the list.

(The guitar solo in Starship's Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now and the whole of Madonna's Cherish would also be high on the list...)

(Indeed, why stop at the guitar solos?)

(Any other suggestions welcome. But I'm talking pop. Not rock, not metal, not goff, sorry goth, just pop. Not necessarily cheesy, but it helps.)

I was having a poke around the internet for one of my favourite jokes, and finally found it. I had to modify it a bit to the form I'm used to, but anyway:

An English professor was trying to make extra money selling vacuum cleaners door-to-door. At his next scheduled stop, he knocked and a little girl answered.

“Young lady, may I please have a word with your mother or father?” he asked.

“Nah..., they ain’t home, is they?” the girl replied. "They was in, but now they's out."

Taken aback, the man scolded the little girl: “Young lady, where’s your grammar?”

“She’s upstairs having a bath.”

The page I got it from also has another rather wonderful grammar joke (the second one), and a link to this brief page of "going into a bar" gramar jokes (I think number six is my favourit).
