gravity

Are the people written about in this article serious? Or is this some bizarre late April Fool's joke?

I have an ear infection and have just come back from the GP with some antibiotics, which I am now trying not to throw up. B is trying to comfort me by saying that this is what Space Sickness feels like - I can categorically say that I won't be going in to space until some kind of Artificial Gravity Generator has been invented.

Back when I can read a screen without chucking up.

  1. Good luck with your efforts not to throw up your meds.

    Poor Ally!

  3. No, it's true! I taught my children to say "What?" rather than "Pardon?", I still try to get them to say "lavatory" not "toilet", and let's not go into the "lunch" versus "dinner" thing. It's hopeless though. They talk like Audrey Hepburn but their vocabularies are irredeemably suburban.

  5. probably true.

    I say toilet and pardon! If Kate is looking for someone.............

    Would you want to marry into that dysfunctional mob?

    hope you feel better soon.

  7. When I was a girl, women would say they had to powder their nose. Toilet? Lavatory? Rest room? Perish the thought! Nice girls didn't have body functions. Sounds like royalty has the same problem.

    Hope you're feeling better.

  11. Ally, that ear thing might be why you are throwing up so much, so once your meds stay down, you might well start feeling a LOT better!

    Well, I do have to say it, I'm with the Queen on that one. I can't stand blantant gum-chewing and overt social climbing. Vampires will suck the blood out of anything they can get hold of, to get ahead. Famous/rich people can't stand people who are sucking up, and rightly so. They can detect it a mile off. I have a famous rock star friend who totally could relate to that.

    The Boy, I'm growing asparagus from seed this year, and apparently they take about 3 years to produce. If I can keep 'em live that long.. ;-) The green thumb is a new development for me.

  13. Hmmm you should be ok as long as you are not being sick in anything so common as a toilet.

  14. Personally, I think lavatory is rather a common word - it reminds me of smelly public conveniences. Loo is much nicer.

  15. ROFL at the last para or two of that article! I see what you mean about the names. LOL (Not that I would ever be crass enough to laugh at someone's name but there just seem to be a whole clutch of names on steroids!)

    And thank you for the link to the article. I had not read a jot on the subject up until now but had heard the controversy mentioned on the news. Sad business all this getting involved in other people's business.
