She's blonde and the reversed brain was still apparent when I came home from darts tonight. Apparently she screwed up at work and came home, talking like a robot. That comes from working at the funny farm.

Ease on the poor little darling called "me",
The funny farm did it to me,
Easily down when one does shift work,
After all I must be slightly mad,
Because all my friends tell me so.
