Sore Throat

I really don’t want to sound a bore
But my throat today is very sore
Seems lack of sleep and scattered diet
Has turned my larynx into a riot
I’ve taken to sucking Fishermans Friends
In the hope the pain will end
I understand that could be misconstrued
But I meant the sweets so don’t be crude

My throat really is killing me today, I’ve been battering a cold for the past 4 days but it’s developed into a painful throat. Does anyone have any decent remedies that work?

Monday

So it’s Monday and I ain’t feeling right
Cus’ my stomach’s in knots feeling tight
A self-inflicted pain I confess
What a weekend yeah I was a mess
I had rockers to the left of me
Prog hippies to the right
Here I am on a Monday feelin’ blue

(wonder if you can name the tune I wrote these alternative lyrics to?)

Waiting in Line ~ or ~ do you have a coupon for that?

I am trying so very much to not to turn into a be-Scrooged Grinch in the run up to Christmas but it’s becoming increasingly possible that I’m going to rein act the most bad-ass scenes from that Michael Douglas film “Falling Down” if I don’t take a chill pill soon. If it isn’t hoards of miserable shoppers, screaming kids and doddery old farts in the shopping centre it’s boy racers, school run tanks and even more doddery old farts on the road.

Dazzle’s Medicinal Compound ~ or ~ how to kill a cold with Scotch whisky, cold tablets and a strong chilli

I have found a cure for the common cold!  Seriously last Friday I was close to keeling over and calling it a day, I’d only had ‘Man Flu’ for a day but it was killing me.  By the time I got home that evening my head felt like it was five times it’s normal size, my nose felt like I’d been snorting cotton wool and my throat felt like I’d swallowed a nest of fire ants (cue screeching violins from an infant school concert).  I’ve been in this place many times before but this time I was determined to beat it.

Game of Thrones

You could be forgiven for expecting a blog about the awesome HBO series “Game of Thrones” but alas you will not find that here. Oh no. This little ditty is actually about our toilet habits. Now when I say “we” I mean men and when I say “habits” I don’t mean our lack of aim or what we get up to with a dirty mag, I mean the things we do to fill the time whilst sitting on the throne.
