It’s been a funny old week here, I’ve posted more often than usual, and received some wonderfully thought provoking emails and comments which I will follow up at some point. But not now; I’m unplugging. See you Monday.

When I was just a little girl*

Reading time: < 1 min

Prompted by the Continuing tips for a three year old offered by ScorpioGirl: I’m not sure what age I was but I think (Mum can correct me) the pinnacle of my childhood career, in this area, was painting a radiator with nail polish. This was no ordinary radiator either, it was an old style one…

Woman's prerogative *

OK, I DO care, especially when a good argument is put forward, namely: “The BBC … by its very existence … serves to protect us from a level of commercial saturation that would destroy much of what we currently take for granted.” So when you put it like that… * No, I’m not a woman…

A few things

Reading time: 2 mins

1. Just finished reading Eats, Shoots & Leaves. It’s smart, funny and reminds me that I really should pay more attention to my grammar on this ‘ere site. 2. I have received an email from Ron. He left some comments on yesterday’s post (Ikeaphobia) and has clarified a few things. Thanks for that Ron, I…

Well *I* like it

Ikeaphobia and its discontents (via Anil Dash). Interesting article about why people complain about IKEA. Globalisation is the cry, and in an ideal world I agree with a lot of the ideas set forth in No Logo (for example). Big corporations buying and selling everything, and forcing the little guy out of business etc etc….

Friendship

Reading time: 2 mins

“That’s what friends are for…” Sang the vultures in Jungle Book, but hey, what do they know? It’s true though, friendship affords you all sorts of discretions, mistakes and assumptions. I’m not suggesting for a minute that friendships should be abused but let’s just say that they are fairly robust. Most of the time. So…

Bucket of Shite

So, the government gets absolved of all wrong-doing yet again. Who’d have expected that, eh? And the report’s been done by a Lord, so it must all be kosher and above-board. *Yawn* Apathy continues, can’t be bothered making up my own content, thanks Lyle 😉

Altogether now

BLIZZARD!!! Feck, where did that come from? One minute blue skies, the next whiteout. Of course today is the first day for 3 weeks that I’ve NOT brought lunch in with me. Feck. Still, at least someone will be happy.

9 things

“10 things I can’t be bothered to blog about” by diamond geezer. Awfully good of him as it saves me posting similar thoughts here (although I have mentioned THAT virus so it’s only really 9 things). Hmmm blogging by proxy, it could catch on…

Re-reading

Reading time: < 1 min

Finally getting the reading bug again. Does anyone else have the same on/off thing when it comes to reading? I’m either reading 2 or 3 books at the same time, completing them all in the space of a week or I don’t read a thing. Odd. Anyway, last night I finished Life, A Users Manual….

Techie advice

MySQL. How do you setup a new database? I know my host supports it, but that’s the limit of my knowledge. Rather than spend an evening aimlessly surfing I was kinda hoping someone out there would have some pointers/suggestions/offers of free help… Answers in the usual place please. [UPDATE: Found my hosts info on setting…

You must be joking

Reading time: < 1 min

Last Thursday I suggested a collaborative joke, this is the outcome. I’ll let you decide it’s humour value (i.e. if it’s higher than zero…). A monkey, a dragon and a rat walk into a bar… The barman looks at the monkey and says…“I’ve seen plenty of rats in here but I’ve never seen one of…
