Quick update

Thanks to all for your thoughts. What a lovely bunch of people frequent this silly website (err.. that’s a compliment… I think). Anyway, the good news, yes, that’s right the GOOD NEWS, is that the worst that happened to my niece was some cuts and bruises. Again, it’s the tip of the story but, right now it’s all we really need to hear. Anything else we can deal with. Right, I’m off to lie on a block of ice for the day… warm isn’t it.

In a rut

So much to talk about, so little inclination. Live 8 – the vitriol surrounding these concerts astounds me. Is it ideal? No. Is it part of a greater scheme that actually seems to be working? Yes. Sir Bob was on Jonathon Ross at the weekend, Jonathon asked him “why have the G8 countries done nothing?”, Bob responded “I have no idea”. Ultimately, and I don’t believe it will be a miracle cure, the steps taken recently WILL make a difference. This is a GOOD thing. Peter at Naked Blog has dropped out of Big Blogger, I’m sad to see him go, I’m also wondering where Big Blogger is heading. I’m still treating it as a silly bit of fun though …

Sith is good?

Apparently the new Star Wars movie (out in 14 days and counting) is a bloodbath. The movie has been given a PG-13 rating due to its “sci-fi violence and some intense images”, which warns parents that it could be inappropriate for viewers younger than 13. I say GOOD! Is it possible that Mr. Lucas may be very aware that the last two movies he has released have been a little TOO kiddie friendly? And I wonder what rating the first movie would get these days. What with the smouldering skeletons of Luke’s Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen and Ponda Baba’s dismembered arm in the Mos Eisley Cantina I can still remember being, well not shocked and repulsed, I was boy …

“A healthy grown up busy busy bee” Deadlines, deadlines. Etymology aside it’s a simple little word that holds an awesome power. Well it must do, I mean I’ve just stopped working at 1.30am. NOT GOOD! Tomorrow, more manic work – in fact this trend will continue until the end of March – and a trip to the dentist that I’d forgotten about until Sadie, the receptionist, phoned earlier this evening to remind me. And then there is the depressing sight (site?) that are my to do lists. Bugger this. I’m off to bed.

To clarify

I’m not questioning my sexuality. We are not discussing having children (and how odd those two sentences look together). We are both very happy, and ultimately, whilst big things are going on, they are GOOD big things (on the whole, bar one…). I’ll also try and leave the whole ‘obfuscating’ thing to Vaughan as, frankly, my head hurts just re-reading yesterday’s post… Ohh and whilst I remember, I was prepared to play the MikeDex thing last week but … well… erm… I completely forgot about it. Sorry.

Guilty secretsJust ordered the soundtrack to Chicago. Shhhh don’t tell anyone (I blame my mother, watching all those MGM musicals when I was growing up has obviously deeply affected me). Ohh didn’t I mention we went to see it at the weekend? No? Well, briefly, it was FANTASTICALLY BRILLIANTLY GOOD. Or some other superlative.
