Brass Monkey Weather & Today's List

Sun rise 20 December 2009 by RLS

In keeping with this bright crisp day (at 10.30 whilst writing this) it's minus 5 degrees and last nights snow is crisp and hardened by a cracking frost. There isn't a cloud in the sky and the atmosphere is great. I got up early, before dawn, had breakfast, took some pictures, cleared the car, filled one of my fish ponds which was very low on water, made sure the other one had a hole in it for the fish to breathe, crashed my pc, restored it and made two cups of tea - and they say men can't multi task (well to be honest of course, I only did one job at a time - but it sounded as if I was busy.)

Well its list time, it's ages since I've done one so here it is on one of my favourite themes, men and women. It's absolutely non PC but I really don't care because I'm taking the mi
ckey out of poor, emotionally devoid, misunderstood, vulnerable weaker sex - men!

I take no credit for this list, it's from an e-mail circulation and it's been edited slightly to save blushes but here goes.

Men Are Just Happier People Because

Your last name stays put;
The garage is all yours;

Wedding plans take care of themselves;
You can never be pregnant;

Car mechanics tell you the truth;

The world is your urinal;

You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a n
ut on a bolt;
Same work, more pay Wrinkles and greying hair add character (certainly true in my case);
People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them;

New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet;

One mood all the time;

Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat;

You know stuff about tanks and engines;
A five-day holiday requires only one suitcase;
You can open all your own jars;
You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness;
Your underwear is £9.50 for a three-pack and lasts ten years;

Three pairs of shoes are more than enough;
You never have strap problems in public;
You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes;

Everything on your face stays its original colour;

The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades;
You only have to shave your face and neck;
You can play with toys all your life;
One wallet and one pair of shoes - one colour for all seasons;
can wear shorts no matter how your legs look;
You can 'do' your na
ils with a pen knife;
You have freedom of choice concerning growing a
You can do Christmas shopping for 24 relatives on 24th D
ecember in 24 minutes.

No wonder men are happier.

  1. Love the list!
    Wow you've got the snow bad there. It's bad here at the moment too.

  2. Hi Val
    And it's hung around as well - with daytime temperatures not getting above freezing and night time dipping to minus 5, it'll take some getting rid although today for the first time in nearly a week, I saw some of the snow metlting from the roof due to to the sun.
    Have a great festive holiday...
