Is it possible that there are some things which are better off kept to one's self? And by better off I mean could the value, the quality, the clarity, intimacy of a memory be somehow violated by sharing it, even with one's friends? Would this morning be less special, less touching if I told you about it?

I realize that by doing this I'm effectively prancing about singing, "I've got a secret! I've got a secret!" which of course is only inviting you to pump me for details. Yes, i'm fully aware that's exactly what i'm doing. I want to tell you, hell, i want to tell everyone, but at the same time I don't (wierdly). It seems too smug, it seems like boasting.

But of course we all love boasting a little bit.

So I'll leave it up to you. Do you want the formula for starting the perfect Monday morning, guaranteed to make you bounce through the rest of the day wearing an obnoxious, shit-eating grin on your face? Or would you rather I just shut the fuck up and go away? (Seriously, if it's the latter just say so; i won't be hurt.)

Ok, so when are you coming over for tea to educate me in these matters, and take me away from the misery of bitter and evil papers?

And btw, loving my mug :) it's already been tested by the strenuous taste testing of serious coccoa twice this morning- so far it's holding up remarkably well and is up for a medal for valour and untold acts of bravery and fabulousness :)

Let's see....

Kenny woke you up this morning with a nice shag, a pot of coffee, a fresh buttery croissant and the words "You are amazing". Then a highly respected professor in the field of Chaucer's intensifiers (oooh that sounds a bit saucy) called you up to tell you how much he admired your work and would you please write the preface to his forthcoming book on the topic?

Ez- tonight babe.

FN- I'm sorry to hear you're ill, but i'm glad you're spreading the love.

TB- scarily accurate. It was tea, not coffee. Will post details shortly.

HC- 3 products (including shampoo and conditioner), and 30 seconds. Routine is as follows: wash and condition, towel dry hair vigorously, finger some mousse through it, leave house.
