Ignoring the fact I have been specifically tagged, and not completed, a few memes in the past couple of months, this one I think I can tackle. Thanks to Cliff for the open invite. 1. My uncle once: remembered my birthday (LOL!!). 2. Never in my life: have I chosen to eat a raw tomato,…

Ack, damn attention deficit disorder. My brain has just skipped from the title of the post to a distant childhood memory of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. I had a few of those toys when I was younger including He-Man himself, who had a built-in spring for his “power punch”, and … eh……

Why buy a domain name if you have no plans to do ANYTHING with it and, as it’s been sitting there for over four years now, it should be obvious that no-one is going to come along and offer you a fortune for it. I want www.mclean.co.uk goddammit!! (and yes I’ve asked what the price…

The Aristocrats

Reading time: 2 mins

Movie info from IMDB Movie reviews from Metacritic The Aristocrats of the title are the closing line of a joke, a family act that feature in a joke so disgustingly offensive comedians rarely tell it in public, or at least that’s partly why. The beauty of the joke is that the “act” can be swapped…

The matchsticks snapped, the caffeine hallucinations haven’t kicked in yet and sitting here with my head soaking, hair dripping, at my desk this is about the best I can come up with. Sorry.

Yes I was slightly nervous, but quietly confident that I knew what I was talking about and that it would show through. Training Strategy presentation to senior management, Vice Presidents and Directors. I think it went well, and prompted a few good questions, but thankfully none I hadn’t considered.
