I've had a sh*t afternoon, I get 30 minutes to myself, sit at the computer to work on the household budget, put my headphones in and...





listen to Nickelback...







and I'm loving it  ph34r.gif

I usually don't like Nickelback at all, and bag them out quite often, but just now, I'm lip-synching my heart out while I edit my spreadsheets...

Oh my not Nickelback!

Def not my taste in music, way too soft, but I must admit I have never understood all the hate towards them!?

I'll see your Nickelback and raise you a ....







Neil Diamond Crunch Granola Suite.

Complete with air guitar.

Whilst I'm confessing, I just locked myself in the pantry and shovelled ten of DP's Lindt balls into my cake hole. (He likes Milk Choc, I don't....well not normally)

Then I told him the kids ate them. ddown.gif

I also ate half a kilo of cashew nuts, and a bag of wasabi peas. I hate wasabi peas.

In addition to a guilty conscience, I think I may also have worms.

Yes. In fact I'd go to the ER immediately OP, it could be something serious, can't be too careful.

I must admit I had two magical elves washed down with baileys for dinner the other night, and am currently listening to the new Ministry of Sound chillout compilation, so absolutely have no credibility.

There's hope at least that all that wasabi will burn the 'music'al memory from your brain.

What's wrong with that?  unsure.gif

I don't think I would know a Nickelback song if I fell over it, however given they are a more recent band, I am sure I wouldn't like them.  biggrin.gif

I am a bad mummy, I have never, ever, not even once put on kids music in the car and I never will!!!

I really think I would go mental, I am giving my kids a lesson in REAL music (that's how I convince myself it is ok lol).
