Was Practice too hard today again?
Thought you were not getting anywhere?
Fingers ached a bit did they?
Not sure if you made as much progress as hoped for?

Here is something I believe will make you never ever think of complaining again, in the piano department that is....

Er, cos were british! Mind you, we dont understand why you have taken vowels out of words like say "color" instead of Colour.
We think vowels must cost a lot in the USA or , there is a shortage of them.
Anyways, there is no such language as "USA" you are meant to speak English, preferably like we do.
We English are famous for not wanting to or seeing the need to speak other languages, we believe everyone should and will eventually learn english.

Just to make it easier, we keep changing it a lot.
And the really weird thing is, technically there is no such thing as English, it is made up of old germanic words, latin words, anglo/saxon words, some french, greek and other stuff.

Japanese is meant to be harder, but I haven't tried that because I am English.

Wayne, no I hadn't !! Tonight I had not been thinking about strapping girly thighs at all, (well only now and again) but now you mentioned rhianna, you set me off, Rhianna has got strapping girly thighs, but I still think that Jeri Ryan, shirley Manson, Milla Jovovich, are better suited to be in my new harem that I am making.

Genuinly hope your hand problems get better...

Wayne, I just re-raised you, are you playing or what, it's your call. Anyone would think musical poker was difficult. tsk.
I bet your deciding to go "all in" with a spectacular song?

oh good call, well I have thrown that hand in.
Saying that, at Glastonbury one year, I was bimbling through the crowd on my way to watch the "spike of death" (because i saw them setting it up,and saw the scars on the guy that did it)
And on my way, masses of folk started rushing towards the pyramid stage, I didn't know who was on, turned out it was Rolf harris, Funny thing was, there were tens of thousands of folk watching him do "Stairway to heaven" and they were all having a brilliant time, in the sunshine..
I know its hard to imagine, but it happened.

Probably Wayne in some "rationally explainable way" lol.
You win the first "pot" for this hand of musical poker.
Your prize is a jar of vegamite, do spread it thinly on your toast.
