gotta keep thinking we can make it through these waves
Good:

- the word "we"
- Chalet School books (hurrah for escapism)
- hugs
- email
- strawberries and redcurrants
- Bogart's Dark Side
- getting points for spelling in a pub quiz (I always wanted there to be something you could do with Being Good At Spelling)
- hope


Bad:

- weird dream which involved snogging Cynical Richard (which meant that I felt all irrationally awkward when I saw him at work)
- poor sleep
- hangovers
- not having enough confidence in being able to spell antirrhinum. I knew there was a double R, goddamnit.
- money
- CDs that remind me of things
- in fact anything that reminds me of things
- hope

Current Mood: hope, or despair, can't tell

Yeah, Chalet School books are great when you're not feeling right - they're just devilishly difficult to get hold of nowadays:-(

That's because my mother is hoarding them all!

I'd rather curl up with Jennings myself.

Everybody keeps saying this, but actually a lot of them have been republished. A search on Amazon for "Chalet School" gets 131 hits, and while some of these are nasty modern impostors trying to fill in the gaps in EMBD's stories, a lot of them are real Chalet School books.

Of course there are still some which you can't get hold of for love or money. Well, okay, you can get hold of them for money, but we're talking about lots of money.

Thought you said "snogging Cliff Richard" there...

Ew! No. At least Cynical Richard (cow-orker, former project manager) is cute. But very married, and, well, a cow-orker. Snogging cow-orkers considered harmful. And snogging them in dreams while being disapprovingly watched by mad evi cow-orker is... disturbing.

Two of my coworkers at elmail got together once. Then one of them was made redundant...
