This week’s 7DOB have one thing in common: They all made me laugh; from the hilarious trauma of 1970s Tupperware, to a poor girl’s lack of sleep due to someone else’s sleep irregularities, to a tale involving a blow lamp, a roof and my own personal nemesis: wasps!
Where the fuck is the lid?!? - My point being
“My point being” is reasonably new blog to me that I’ve only been following since August. I have no idea how I found it – maybe it found me, but it’s quickly become one of my favourite reads. The blogs author Dan, who lives in the very lovely Melbourne Australia, writes about events in his life – past and present – in such a way that I regularly actually do “laugh out loud,” and this post from last week about 70s Tupperware, called “Where the fuck is the lid?!?” is a great example. I find the best way to read Dan’s blog is to put on an Australian accent, especially for the swearing bits – try it, you’ll see it works a treat.
...in the midnight hour – It’s an average life
Some of the people who have been following my blog over the years, or chat to me on Twitter, will know of my sleep problems: namely insomnia, but just lately I’ve also had other stuff going on at night. I’ve been waking up with my heart absolutely racing away in my chest, and I’ve been trying to swipe imaginary insects from my face and head. In doing this swiping the other night I inadvertently slapped my girlfriend! So I couldn’t help, noticing this great post by Average Girl (her words, not mine) about her partners annoying night time habits. Sorry Average Girl: I’m laughing at your post, and I’m not sure if that’s what you intended, but I really enjoyed it anyway.
Eddie Inspires A Neighbour To Paint His House – Clouds and silvery linings
Eddie Bluelights tale of very dodgy scaffolding, and painting and decorating, not only made me smile, but reminded me of a brief period in my life when I was did the same for a living during the 1980s. Way back before the “health and safety” man, we used to work in some incredibly dangerous situations with no hardhats, or harnesses to keep us safe, leaning off ladders rather than moving them, and climbing hazardous scaffolding erected by idiots (us). Thanks Eddy for making me laugh with your post.
