  5. you are so funny and clever!! I LOVE the title of your post - if I wrote a novel, can I use that for the title?? If I give you a share of royalties and credit you properly?! :)
    (I thought you were firm and yet kind in your last post - hurrah for firmness!)

  6. Love the Minestry of Textiles answer. Very governmental...Laughing all the time I was reading. Too bad that they are unwilling to do anything about your complaint!

  7. Oh Lier! That's hilarious! I used to work in government too and I can totally relate! Maybe put it out with the next lost tooth in your house. The Tooth Fairy might be kinder! LOL

  8. Too funny! I just lost a needle last weekend, so I know the feeling! Unfortunately, it was at 11pm Saturday night, so the Easter bunny didn't get to finish all of her presents...that's what I get for procastinating!

  10. Oh my! Just when I thought I'd visited the best blogs around... I'll get myself a nice cup of tea and will start reading from the beginning. Thanks!

    Ah, Reeni -"within three business days" was the stipulated timeframe we had to work with in Singapore. No exceptions. We were nothing if not efficient.

  16. Lucky I'm alone in my kitchen laughing out loud, or I'd be getting some strange looks for giggling at my computer!

  17. The only thing worse than breaking your stretch ball point needle is breaking your TWIN stretch ballpoint needle ( in exactly the same way too!) - because it costs twice as much to replace. I did enjoy your letters though - thanks for the giggle!

  19. Hilarious! I'm still going to send them a note now and then, just to see if I get lucky.

  20. Love the way your brain works, girl!

  22. Only thing which made me laugh today..

  23. I am utterly crushed you mean there is no real fabric fairy - surely that cannot be true. Next you'll be telling me babies don't come from under the gooseberry bush - but that's where I found all mine!! Honest!

  24. I had a first the other day: I bent a needle 45 degrees. Apparently I could do with a copy of that brochure...

  25. I need a like button. It's posts like this one that keep me coming back religiously to your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hmph. The exact same thing (including the non-appearance of the fairy) happened to me yesterday. Maybe if the fabric fairy won't come we could get hold of those shoe making elves. Surely they haven't been downsized by the global financial crisis too?

  27. Lorraine, you are hilarious!!! LOVING that post!
    I had such a crappy day yesterday ... tiny one high fever and stuff ... and today I was relieved - fever gone - but SO tired and fed up.
    You have no idea how much this post brightened up my day! So much fun! You have a crazy imagination and I love that. And it reminds me ... I should use my crazy mind a bit more .... :-)

    Sending you much love!!!
