Fairly recently: Believe that a guy with an official-looking lanyard and swing-badge (which I must admit I didn't examine) at Shanghai airport, and operating openly, would actually take me to an "official Shanghai Airport Taxi" rather than a totally-unofficial people carrier driven by Ahmed the Chink who charged me at least double the usual rate.

3 Wednesdays ago I drunk 3 bottles of wine. Only a fool breaks the two bottle rule..........After the 2 day hangover I will never do it again.

Just before I came to Holland I gave our gerbil a pumpkin seed.

He died while I've been away.

I really don't want to limit myself in any way, I always said "never say never" but i'll probably never attempt to talk business at a funeral again. Having a family member recently die gives you're oponant an incredible advantage in any negotiations..

Gambled on my slight peanut allergy.

I know any more than a small handful will make me vomit and shit at the same time in the morning....but about a week ago I went for it and ate quite a few.

Next morning was agony.
