to admit that I just went a bit peculiar when MN went offline for an upgrade?

I'm ashamed to say that I flapped slightly and pressed F5 repeatedly until it came back. I honestly couldn't think of anything else I wanted to look at but felt that turning the computer off was a bit final.

I stopped myself from googling the word monkey to see what came up to fill the time. And I'm not even particularly interested in monkeys.

Would you like some suggestions of what you could google next time there is an upgrade?

I had a slight panic that I wouldn't have anything to tune out Top Gear - and started thing surely at MN HQ they know Top Gear is on at this time(DH & DS obsessed)

@ Chaos: I've googled every nevergoogle and feel pretty desensitised but, go on, surprise me...

Perhaps MNHQ should add a nevergoogle suggestion to the upgrade screen to help us pass the time.

I went downstairs for a bowl of Cocopops and a pear.

I felt a little bereft; so I decided to decided to examine the interior of an empty chrysalis on the windowsill. A few weeks ago, the caterpillar in question came to a halt just there, <<points>> outside my window and decided to do the metamorphosis bit. Yellow and black striped chappie.

However, he has buggered off in his full glory when I wasn't watching - I was wondering if he'd left a note, or any other trace of his transformation. But no, nothing; just an empty husk, trembling in the breeze. I hope he has had a happy and fulfilling time as a butterfly.

How very rude Talc, I hope he comes back to visit and pay backdated window ledge rent at least.

(I went on twitter, no one was doing anything. It was dull)

I minimised everything I had open and watched dp play gran turismo for a bit. Then I looked at facebook. Then I had a wee smile
