Quite frankly, this is the kind of entry that only I would read, about 40 years into the future.

I'd be reminiscing to the grandkids about how exciting my thirties were, then go through my blog to show them, and realise that not much has changed, except that most of my parts are now bionic and rust-proof.

Item 1: Hallelujah! I can hear again!

I saw the ENT surgeon today, a very nice guy, but a mumbler, so I had no idea what he said most of the time. After a 1 hour wait and $250 (consultation fee plus something called "ear toilet" - I presume this was the cleaning procedure plus hearing test), my right ear is now free from granulated debris.

Also, I apparently have excellent hearing. So, woo to the hoos all round.

Item 2: I haven't been sleeping so well lately.

We have some family friends over from New Zealand who are staying in my bedroom, so I've been bunking at MFC's place. I can therefore blame my strange and vivid dreams on his tossing and turning. That and the mugfuls of dry Nutrigrain that I like to inhale while watching TV before bedtime.

Healthy breakfast cereal, my arse. Well, healthy compared to heroin or a mug of sugar, I suppose.

On Monday night I had an awful, awful dream.

I was wandering along an open-air corridor in this apartment/business complex, and on the second floor these enormous women wearing singlets were walking around doing their shopping.

Except, their singlets were so small that they just wore them along the middle of their torsos , between their cleavage, and their giant boobs were peeping, actually, that's probably too mild a word - their giant boobs were glaring at me from either side of the singlets. And there was a bra shop on the corner, but none of them were buying bras.

I ran downstairs, whimpering, and for some reason my family were strolling past. I immediately went over to them and cried, "Guys! Guys! You'll never believe it! There are these huge women on the second-floor with their boobs hanging out! AND there's a bra shop just around the corner!"

I told MFC about this dream and naturally he thinks I'm insane.

Last night, however, I dreamt that I stayed in the same hotel as Nicole Kidman and Claudia Schiffer, so I suppose it all balances out.

No surprise you aren't sleeping well. I looked up the Nutrigrain link. 32% Sugar! Total carbohydrates 69% and non of it low GI. Have a glass of milk instead! Glad to 'hear' your ear is better. I was told by an ENT specialist that you shouldn't put anything in your ear smaller than your elbow. Jaymez

Yes, I know, but I really liked having "clean" ears. Now I have to sit on my hands when I feel the urge. Sigh.
