I'm Back *

Not blogged much recently cos I just simply couldn't be arsed. Or, rather, not blogged much recently cos I am brain dead. Well, it's not as if nothing has happened in the world.

For a start, there was this avoidable disaster, which hopefully has made a lot of people realise that praying is not the answer and, more importantly, that they have had enough of Bush and his neo-cons mates in the White House.

There is also this madness, which sums up how we have so got the wrong priorities in our society. This reliance on the car is of course encouraged by arseholes like this one, so it was funny to see this.

Or I could have made comment on this generally welcome election result or ranted about this sickening story.

Or I may have gone lighthearted and thought, at last, here we have a good use for cats or felt sorry for the cops here.

Or I could have told you that when I saw the headline "McCartney to woo trade unionists" I thought it was talking about this bloke because the idea of this wee nyaff (as my mum would probably describe him) wooing anyone is surely a joke.

Or that I'll have to get down to the National Portrait Gallery to see this.

Or, on the sporting front, I could have told you that this was excellent, this in many ways was even better, this was tedious and this was the most hilarious thing that's happened this year, but it came a week after this, which was also laugh a minute, and followed a few days later by this funny episode. Or I could have just mentioned that this was the best of the lot.

Or that my dad has had this done, but that it hasn't gone at all well and he is on his back confined to his hospital bed and will be for some days to come. That is why I'm heading for the auld country at the weekend, during which I'm sure I'll also partake in a bevvy or two with this geezer.

welcome back. Missed you. Regardless of the dubious merit of some of these links.

At least you don't mention our Hammering on Monday night.

Thanks for all your comments...now I'll answer them one by one.

Jane - what else could a young man do but taunt you sassenachs about the England fiasco. It was soooooo funny.

Lisa - Glad you liked the links.

Messalina - see you there next Thursday and then the drinks are on you.

John - "dubious merit of some of these links". Explain yourself young man. Oh, wait, I geddit, you're a Top Gear fan!!!! As for Monday night, watched it after seeing the stupendous Ashes victory and thought, at best, embarrassing and you'll shrug it off and get on with the rest of the season, but, at worst, if the Hammers can put four past you, what about the rest of the Premiership?

Wrong! It was soooooo terrible.
Not quite so embarrasing today though as Northern Ireland have risen to the dizzy heights of 101st best side in the world.That's even better than the Cobblers that is!

Ok! another quiz question coming up.
What do these teams have in common? Luxembourg, Iran, Costa Rica, Malta, and the Faroe Islands.
Humm, let me think. I'm sure the answer will come to me in a moment or two!

Malta, never! I'm now late for work having delved deep to confirm this. Luxembourg... I don't bloody thinks but I don't have time to confirm this. Faroes 2-2 could have been worse it looked like 3-0 at one point the others well thats just Scotland I guess. Still I have never laughed so much in my life as when I did the time England played San Marino when Poland needed to win by 6 - 0 or something and needed San Marino to beat England to qualify and it seemed ludicrous and then in the fastest ever goal in an international, San Marino scored (probably for the first time in an international). That was sooo funny!

I'm in full agreement with Reidski on this one. Correspondence closed.(San Marino...what a nightmare!)

Welcome back, Riedski, it's a festival of hyperlinking there, yet, strangely nothing from the Champions' League...

I feel you're short-changing the power of prayer [internationally it's all mounted up over the years]

The San Marino goal has to be one of THE BEST EVER, Caged children not such a laugh though.

Hope all goes well for your da', be sure to raise a glass to absent friends while you're over the border.

Haste ye back as they say, who, exactly, said that?
