Post: # 44516Post the.fee.fairy »

I've got the horrible coldy thing that's going round.

Someone make me laugh (apparently, next to sex, that's the best way to get healthy again!!).

Or just give me things i can do to feel better again. I just phoned in sick - that's how horrible it is!! I never phone in sick!

The best I can offer are a couple of my fave jokes if thats of any help
Here goes

Two snowmen are standing in a field and one says to the other "can you smell carrots?"

Whats the definition of s shitzu?
One with no animals
(You may have to read this one slowly several times!! lol)

Hope you feel better soon

And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free

It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

:( me and my son had this over xmas too. I always find that doing things rather than just sitting helps me feel better. I don't know if it actually does or if it's just the fact that your distracted that helps

2 cows are standing in a field and one says to the other 'what'd you think about this mad cow disease then?' the other replies 'don't bother me I'm a tractor'
--------------
A plane with 4 passengers is about to crash, but has only three
parachutes. The first passenger says "I'm Kobe Bryant, the best NBA
basketball player. The Lakers need me. I can't afford to die." So he
takes the first parachute and leaves the plane.

The second passenger, Hillary Clinton, says "I am the wife of the
former President of the United States. I am the most ambitious woman in
the world. I am also a New York Senator, a potential future President,
and above all, the smartest woman in America." She grabs the second
parachute and leaves the plane.

The third passenger, The Rev. Billy Graham, says to the fourth
passenger, a 10 year old school boy, "I am old and I don't have many
years left. As a Christian I will sacrifice my life and let you have the
last parachute."

The boy says, "It's okay. There is still a parachute left for you.
America's smartest woman took my school backpack."

I know more mostly not very clean jokes, I used to ask a girl I worked with to give me a subject every day and I would come back with a joke. Want to give that a go?

I know how you feel fee.fairy...this cough, cold, sore throaty, sniffy thing that's doing the rounds is doing me in. I feel so tired all the time. What a whimp I am!

Let's hope it clears up soon and we are bouncing back to health.

I've been seed starting today though. I've got some lychees that i started a week ago, just beginning to split, so i started some more, and some satsuma seeds (basically, i saved any seeds i came across at christmas...).

Feeling a bit better now.

Apologies for the dreadful joke below... but it fits (sort of, the colds theme).

Why did the prostitute have a runny nose?

Great jokes.

Can you grow satsumas in the UK?

My Mum had the lurgie and was on antibiotics and confined to her house. My MIL currently has it and was admitted to hospital last night :(

i hope they get better soon!
I'm off work again today, my dad insisted that i should have more than one day off.

Satsumas: well, i grew some lemon and orange pips in the summer in the greenhouse. The trees are about 3" tall now. I don't know if the fruit will set (i've read different things about citruses - mostly the seeds are polyembronic, and as long as you use the side shoots, they whould be tru to fruit.). I'm going to see what happens. I like growing things because i can, rather than planning them carefully, so i tend to plant an pips/stones i come across.

Ta for the jokes. I think we need a new thread: Andy's Joke Of The Day!

I used to work with a bloke who was growing his own lemon tree in his office. He got a lemon, which amazed me because it wasn't a very big tree.

Keep us posted on your satsuma. I'm interested.
