Survival of the thickest...

This morning I got up early, strrrrrrrrrretched and yawwwwned.
Had my usual shower.
By the time I was fully awake I realised that nothing had changed overnight.
I still feel as if my world is caving in on me.

A million things.

So I spent half an hour searching for an appropriate YouTube theme to describe how I really feel...
Down... Out... Miserable... Head up my ass... Google...

And then I thought, Moi, Monsieur le Fataliste, that whatever happens to me in life, I may stumble, I may cry but I won't lay down and die...

You got to have faith...

...Off to Algeria to see Papa...

OMG that was soooo funny. I'm having a slight case of insomnia here and that cracked me up. (Yawn) NOW maybe I'll be able to sleep

Oh Cream!! I'm almost speechless...
Very Funny!
You'll be fine.
Even when you're this down you can still find something like that! That says a lot about you!

Oh, that's where my ex-boss got it from, he emailed it some weeks ago.

My song is, "I am chicken hear me squawk."

I'm sending some positive vibes your way, hope they reach you (((((((((((

Listen to 3 little birds by Bob Marley.

Dammit! I can't see whatever is so funny. Nothing happens when I click....

Anyway, you will find your way Cream. I am sure of that.

Thanks for the laugh! Mwhahahahaha! I don't know what is happening to you but I sincerely hope you will solve your problem! And if you want to see more videos, I have made a few myself. Some are funny and maybe you will see something that will make you smile! I'm Merlinprincesse, on YouTube... What a surprise! :) Take care!

Oh Cream you are so funny! I know what you are going through right now might seem bleak but you WILL survive, with a sense of humour like yours how could you not?!!!

I wasn't expecting that to happen.

Maybe it's as well that I never made it today. Last thing you want when things aren't so great is some daft blogger turning up demanding food.

I am glad you all like this version of I will survive. I don't think poor Jesus would've survived the bus!

Ha! I almost didn't click on that link, because I just assumed that it was stock Gloria Gaynor footage. Although my eternal soul will have a lot of explaining to do, that was pretty damn funny.

U crazy, Cream.

I am pronouncing a fatwa on you for dissing our prophet, I'll have you for religious discreamination (ha ha) and while we're at it let's get the Crusaders back in and have a proper religious war, those Jihadi boys must be bored out of their skulls having no-one fight back.

Have a good time in El Djazair, I bet you'll feel better after some time back in the bled, get yer head back on straight and eat right. Slaughter a sheep for me. Bisous vieux.

I hope being there does you a world of good, Cream.

Salam to Papa and your siblings from us here in Guyana and Eid Mubarak when it comes. xx

I beg your pardon, Daphnée! A fat what?? Do I detect a veiled threat in your belliquous talk?
Getting back to the bled always brings back to earth. I come back refreshed and full of...couscous!
I'll try to enjoy a chop or two... I am sick of Chorba! Merci, my petite!

Double chin, you mean surely, Tat!

Thanks, Gigi! Eid Mubarak to you too and your mam! My regards to her!
