Enough to send you bleeping mad!

Another observation about television land. Have you noticed, almost without exception, every time a computer screen is featured in a film or drama, it bleeps and whistles like R2D2 on friggin’ acid? Query: Bleeeeeeeeep blip blip blip dooooooooop! Zoom in: dit dit dit dit dit bweeeeeeeeb! Locked on target: Bloooop bloooop bloooop! Gimme a friggin’ break! Computers don’t do that. …

Well, I must have been a happy bunny for the last few weeks, as I haven’t posted for a while. But today was a dark, dark day for me. Note the date: 26th August. Today I heard the first mention of a new series of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. It was on the Breakfast news this morning, although quite what it …

Bowls of wood???

I’m out of work at the moment and every time the little lady walks out the door on her way to work I must admit that I do feel little pangs of guilt (now and then). So, yesterday I decided I’d better do my bit and make an effort to help around the house. I’d do the vacuuming and dusting. …

Gissa job!

Well, today was my last day in my present job. I have been made redundant. I have known for a few weeks, having worked out my notice. So have the bosses who made the decision. Neither of them are here today to say a simple “thanks and good luck”. Nor did they find time to say it before today. I …

I’m job hunting at the moment. So, I sit down with the job supplement out of the local paper and search through the pages. What’s all this crap I’m faced with? Job titles such as ‘Corporate Performance Officer’, Crisis Worker’, ‘Financial Inclusion Officer’ and my personal favourite, ‘Sector Facilitator’. Perhaps if I knew what they actually meant, I might apply …

Snooker loopy? Not me!

“Ooooo, did you watch the snooker final?” everyone’s asking me. No, I fucking didn’t! And shall I tell you why? Well, I’ll tell you anyway. It’s because all the players feel the need to to wiggle their middle finger whilst cueing up a shot. What the fuck’s all that about? They never used to do it years ago. Now they …

Ice, Ice, Baby.

I smugly watched all my neighbours this morning scraping ice from the windows of their cars. They all had their motors running, exhaust polluting the atmosphere, while they scraped. And scraped. And scraped. All of them, to a person, have a garage. And where do they park? On the fucking road, two wheels on the pavement as is standard nowadays, …

S-L-O-W-L-Y does it…

Have you noticed the really annoying trend that seems to be the growing tendency amongst TV announcers to t-a-l-k r-e-a-l-l-y s-l-o-o-o-o-w-l-y when introducing programmes? “Commming uup onn- Iiiiiiii-Teeeeee-Veeeeee-Twoooo, the stoooory ooof a mootherrr annnd”….. FUCK OFF!!!! Is this so thickies can keep up, or is it just the patronizing manner of the announcers? Either way, it’s bloody annoying. And while …
