Nothing to see here. Move along, move along… (note to self: read RSS articles properly you flanging spurtle monkey!)

Guilty

New Road Tax Rules (via Blue Witch). If you are a driver, you know about this already. I wasn’t going to comment on it but it makes my blood boil and it’s my site and you can’t stop me and… ohh hang on I don’t need to revert to school ground antics, do I? Essentially the new rules state: “If you don’t tax your vehicle on time, you will receive a penalty of up to £80. And if you continue to drive without a valid tax disc, you could be fined a minimum of £1,000.” The DVLA will use it’s computers to check up on you, and if they don’t have notification that you’ve purchased a new tax disc when …

Thank f… goodness

Oh, R-o-ob, The Bad Words Won’t Go Away: “The f-adjective is now one of many intensifiers in English, like ‘extremely,’ with a flavor surely pungent but barely sexual” I admit that I, all too readily, use the f-adjective too much (one of my silent New Year resolutions is to swear less often) and people rightly chastise me for being lazy as I should really know better, particularly in my line of work. However you can’t deny that swearing is common place these days and as language evolves it is part of the evolution that sees swear words promoted to everyday usage so easily. Therein lies the problem. We are running out of swear words, and I mean REALLY new swear …

Spewgoon?

I would like to point you over to Yeah, but is it art?. Not for the vomit related story (EVERYONE has a vomit/vehicle related story*) but for the picture of the kitchen. FANTASTIC!! The very cartoon that captured my imagination so many years ago. * Mine was in an outdoor centre minibus, the ‘spewer’ decided to try and catch his vomit in his hands, but it came out with such velocity it merely fanned out in a fine (if lumpy) spray all over everyone else. Enjoy your lunch.

Funny but not

A forwarded MP3 (all of 250kb or so) which is quite funny. It’s about Scottish football. A phone-in to a radio programme about Scottish football. It’s funny. Until you really think about it. Then it’s embarassingly sad. But still funny.

Stolen

What? It can’t be. It is. But how did that happen? Time waits for no man. Well yes I know that but still.. are you sure about this? Completely. But that means I need to go back to work on Monday! That is correct. Arse. That’s the problem about having a conversation with a calendar. It never gets the dates wrong…

Two down

Books to read, movies to watch, CDs to hear. Don’t ya just love the first couple of days of the year. Lazing around, finishing off leftovers and sweets, indulgence and decadence. Now is when I should start listing resolutions and stuff, right? Wrong. I’ve decided not to make any specific resolutions this year, I only end up breaking them anyway. Instead I’m going for the rather vague “better myself”. You know, read more, write more, dust off my keyboard, etc etc. What about you? What do you resolve to do (or not do)?
