I wasn't always a nun
Saturday! O what a joy it is to be up at 0800 and go bouncing on Bud and Jof's bed.
Picked up BigMax and drove up to Horizones. They had given me a free ticket because I broke my arm there so that was nice. We made exactly the same table our base and as before, the resistance were able to send a lone warrior back in time..nonono, Jof went to Giant Tesco again, not that we were trying to tempt fate or anything.
We worked hard as usual and stopped off at Bud's table for scheduled refuelling stops. Eventually Jof returned and we sat in the quite pleasant canteen upstairs and ignored our food in favour of the 5-a-side football game going on in the sports hall below. The food had taken a while to arrive so Jof put some money in the pool table and we played as only 5 year-olds do.
It was his turn when he lost one of the balls down one of the holes in the corners and I burst into tears and hid under the table for 10 minutes. Luckily the food arrived so Bud, Jof and OtherMax were able to get on with it while I sulked on a nearby sofa. Bud ordered "Monster Burger". It didn't have a monster in it, was not made from monsters and did not make him feel like a monster so a bit of a con there I think, but it did have 2 bacons and a fried egg between the more traditional burger and Flex-E-bend™ cheese slice.
Tonight Jof is going out with the PuddleMummies again for dancing, liquor and debauchery (and curry, apparently) so you just know that Bath Fizzer Night is going to be an even more drunken and noisy affair. He has promised me we can make "Bath Potion" which is basically everything in the bathroom all bunged in together in my jug, and stirred vigorously with a small yellow plastic spade to tonight's booked CD "The best pub jukebox in the world...ever! part 17". Popsmum had some heroic new shoes that made her very tall as long as she didn't need to walk anywhere: I guess she'll still feel just as tall sitting down.
Have your lab technician grind the following together in a pestle and mortar.
Iodine, potassium permanganate, sodium dichromate, red phosphorus, lithium borate, aluminium powder, sodium chlorate, sulphur crowns, carbon, ferrous nitrate, fructose, calcium granules, potassium perbromate, and anything else you can find in the storeroom.
From a nearby room, titrate 75.3 ml of 12 molar HNO3 into the mixture via a burette. A vigorous effervescent reaction will occur......
In his A-level year, Bud came top of the year in chemistry. He didn't always follow the rules.....
So, thanks for all my webpage visits from both foreign and domestic viewers (now well over 3000). I finally crashed out at 1030 after a highly successful potion'n'fizzer bathtime and an in-depth analysis of "Little Miss Scary".
