What I learnt today is, although it is possible to ride a pushbike whilst wearing a pencil skirt, this may not guarantee that you will be able to wear said skirt another time without having to re-stitch the damn thing. Also support shorts may give you a flat tummy, but really do nothing for your sex appeal when they are on show to the world.

I learned that my parents really do believe in “do what I say, not what I do.” My mother refuses to get yearly check ups but basically preaches to me about being healthy and seeing a doctor regulary. =/

Since today just began, what I learned yesterday was that when one of your blades for a paper cutter machine goes dull, throw it out. Do not put it in the same package as the new blade and then debate which blade will complete your project and which will destroy it. You will choose the destructive path and have to redo a lot of work! If you do insist on testing out the blades, a scrap is probably a much better idea, although 10 seconds more work.
Ironically, right after I learned this my FI decided to clean up the table and took all the blades laying around and put them in a baggie together. Now I have to go through it again!

Yesterday I learned not to try and assist someone with their money situation to better them; it always results in a fight.
I learned that this weekend, the only person I should have commented with was my SO, as everyone else was out to pick a fight (inc. 2 best friends and my mom) :/
And…lastly I learned, not to compare my SO to the show with the NY Italians from the bronx…it’s offensive to the FMIL….
All around brutal wknd…

Another thing I learnt (last night). If you don’t have pastry beads, beans are a good alternative, I repeat beans. Not – and may I just stress this NOT popcorn kernels. Where the HELL was my head at when I got that shining bright idea!?!??!)
On the same note – the other thing I learnt is that popcorn can take your eye out when you open the oven door. And the same evening I learn’t DH finds me screaming a ducking for cover really really funny.
