Conversations from the Fibro #4

WHAT I TALKED ABOUT THIS WEEK: It’s that time of the week, when I share some of the topics of conversation that came up through work or play (I'll leave it to you to figure out which is which) in the course of life in a pink fibro.

"Emperor Palpatine (and how he’s really not real and therefore can’t be too scary…fingers crossed), The Wire, The Killing, small houses, Relay for Life, the Wimoweh song, Jimmy Giggle (that's him with his owl on the left, ABC-2), photography, Tony Abbott, Angela Shanahan, the hot water heater, plumbers, lock configurations, Sven the world’s unluckiest speed skater, online dating, superannuation, credit ratings, lawn mowers, Lydia Lassila, mulch, memories of childhood friends, Eddie McGuire, gumboots, blogs, the making of friends, the keeping of friends, what to do when friends no longer want to be friends, turnips, stationery, new books, old books, great books, twitter, nappies, Buzz and Woody…the end of FebFast (so close)."


  1. I wantto know what you were saying about The Wire- more detail please! I am *addicted* to that show, though my husband (similarly afflicted) will only let us watch one epiosde a week so as to make it last- we're half way through series 3. He often watches the same episode twice for extra value...

  2. The Builder and I are both OBSESSED. Series 2 is sitting there taunting me as we speak (little voice 'watch me, watch me'), but it's a We thing, so I won't. We are churning through several episodes a week and would just sit and watch the whole thing back to back if it weren't for, you know, kids, work, eating, sleeping etc. I'm thinking we'll watch right through series 1-5 and then start all over again. Sad, but true.

  3. I love to see another addict! Funny, The Wire is definitely a *we* thing for us too. We never usually watch TV together except 4 Corners- I don't watch any TV other than that, really- but DVDs of The Wire have changed everything. It sounds so stupid, but our Wire night is something we anticipate. We sit on the couch together with wine or Sunnyboys (depending on the weather) stop and start and comment then dissect afterwards, often in bed- OK, I better stop before it appears I have no life whatsoever. But honestly, I just love Stringer, McNulty, Daniels, Kima and co. Good to know I'm not alone.

  4. Nope, we're right there in No Life land with you. And loving it!


Thanks for popping by the Fibro. I love to hear from you!
