Great happenings of the week:

1) Amazingly, surprisingly, FINALLY, we have a new carpet in our bathroom. It is white, with tasteful grey and black speckles (I sometimes imagine that the speckles are green, but I think this is a case of self-delusion). Obviously I am rather sad to see the bare brown hardboard obscured from view after 5 weeks in its company, but it is nice to walk on a proper floor again. The scraggy, hairy fish-shaped mat finishes it off perfectly…

2) We are still dangerously close to getting a puppy. I really thought I had talked my housemate out of this idea last weekend, but her ominously enthusiastic reaction to the puppy on the Andrex advert suggests otherwise. I may have to boycott this product. It really does not help at all that next door have just got a dog. This is sending out all of the wrong messages…

3) On a more positive note, Jackie the hamster now has a new nest, the previous one having been eaten in several places (by the hamster, I should probably stress – not by me or my housemates). Hopefully she should survive the winter in this…

4) On a much less positive note, my housemates really HAVE joined the Jehovah's witnesses. Two more of them came round on Saturday and colonised the lounge for over 2 HOURS, during which time I lay as low as possible in my room (I improved my free cell win ratio and swept some mines – very stimulating…). I don't know what was discussed, but they left my housemates some highly dubious booklets full of Jehovah-related stuff. I read one of them later, and apparently Jehovah's witnesses don't accept blood transfusions and (even more shockingly) don't celebrate birthdays and Christmas! What kind of a religion IS this? On the plus side, it does transpire that 'God's witnesses must be clean', which could provide some useful ammunition in debates about the kitchen/bathroom and general matters of hygiene…

    Be thankful that your friends are joining the one religion in the world that makes sense. Blood is sacred…life is ion the blood, and that belongs to God…and who would agree to a blood transfusion nowadays anyway!!!.......Birthdays were only celebrated by pagans in Christs time, so as Christians we don’t do it. Christmas….where do I start????? PAGAN….PAGAN…nothing to do with Christ AT ALL….he was born in October….do some research, and why not look into things yourself….all your questions will be answered…I KNOW>>>>>it happened to me!!!
