I'm completely deaded this time, ah well, such is the sequel.
Me too, 1 million people held out in my nation
Yay for Rob Ford being Rob Ford. For once Toronto doesn't want to be the centre of the universe. Time for the rest of the country to shine!
I prefer the fact that vancouver's mayor is far and away more attractive, and that's in regards to common sense ;)
Reminds me of a survey done years ago that suggested we are more likely to elect leaders that we are physically attracted to.
Well, I have a confession to make. I can't actually speak duck. I speak cat though! At least, I think I do. My cat and I meow back and forth so I'm assuming I'm making sense to her.
Well done Sorgie, its amazing who we try to make contact with when we are down in the ducks !! I am sure that your cat knows all that your meowing to her. When she rubs her nose on yours is the cat way of saying I understand your message, so do not be late putting her dinner in the dish or she may stretch her claws and leave her mark on your person. I am glad that there is another side to you...but god knows how you would cope if the cat was a Duck.
Tis only three and a bit weeks to the Glorious big Hoohah day of the year, yes folks its the day when kids fight over bits of wrapping paper and sticky tape, ignoring whatever was wrapped in it, the day when emergency rooms around the globe are inundated with a million burnt fingers from people lifting the turkey out of the oven without wearing the appropriate oven glove, trying to pick it up of the kitchen floor when they have dropped it because of the weight and heat of the tray or dish. The drunken arguments over dinner, cat calling some of the family who are not present and muttering between ourselves over the crappy *same every year presents* we get from the same relations. The men are inundated with pairs of outsize socks and underwear that's to small, but they thought it would be OK because it was in the September Xmas sale three months ago, endless bottles of cheap smelly after shave from the pound/dollar shop and deodorant from the same place's. We Males say nothing about this annual guessing game of whhat we are supposed to like and just smile and say thank you. Women on the other hand expect fabulous prezzies from their loved ones, diamonds, new wardrobes befitting Queens, [all designer labels] I phones, and treats galore for the use of.
The credit card debt is blown out of all proportion, Christmas is expensive you say, the card companies just sit back and clap their hands all the way to their banks coffers and we all make excuses for having spent so much.. Well the kids have been good this year, he/she always wanted one of those, we got nothing when we were kids so I'm making up for it now, it will only take me another two years to pay it off...what the hell..live for today. We can only go bankrupt or have our house repossessed what's the worry ?.
So on that note folks, A little early I know, but Merry Christmas to you all, may all the gentlemen stay sober and stop smoking in the new year and may all the ladies be good, if they cannot be good, then be careful, AND!!!! if you cannot be careful, you will have to buy a pushchair. ;)
Ta Ta for now...
Hola people, the region has gone deathly quiet again, tis coming up to happy time and yet no one appears to be happy anymore, or has anything to say about anything. Have the doldrums set in, are we so depressed that Xmas is just around the corner or are we that busy shopping our feet off that we just do not have the time to post. I see Sorgie keeps popping in and out but is keeping a kind of reserved silence, keeping herself to herself. Never mind, we will only do what we want to do won't we. Have you all bought your presents for your loved ones yet, is the turkey ordered, have the mince pies and Christmas cakes been made, have you got up all the tinsel and decorations and is the tree in place and adorned with the usual baubles and glittery stuff. If the answer to all these questions is yes..you are all two steps ahead of me then. We have it all to do and it will be done in time, its just that we favour not doing things till two weeks before the big day. In our avenue four of the houses have exterior lights all aglow with father Christmas and puffing trains carefully watched by reindeer and other deer. A giant blow up effigy of Father Christmas, all lit up and slowly deflating has a prominent place in one neighbours garden, tied to a drain pipe for stability, another day or so and the neighbour will be out early evening with his foot pump trying to erect it to a decent size again, such are the pitfalls of trying to be upmarket from the rest of us. The only thing missing here for the festive season in the UK is the snow but I am sure most of our North American friends will have plenty in due course if not all ready. We Brits are never prepared for it when it comes and it causes absolute chaos across the country, mainly car accidents by stupid irresponsible drivers who cannot get out of bed half an hour sooner so they can set off earlier and take their time on the journey to work, but even if you do, there is always some nutter who likes to keep pushing from behind you till the eventual incident occurs causing untold misery for families for weeks afterwards, when will they learn.
The GOLDEN RULE for driving in any kind of weather is KEEP YOUR DISTANCE. I saw so much stupidity that caused accidents during my many years of driving large trucks and semi's all over the UK for a living.
well that's enough blubber for today's post so stay lucky you people, take care and remember to love thy neighbour unless you are unfortunate enough to have a similar barsteward like the one who lives next door to me.
University's keeping me plenty busy at the moment. Working on a short documentary about historical re-enactment, which has been a lot of fun to do, actually.
It has had the side effect of introducing me to the hobby, though, and I've spent many cold afternoons learning to heft a sword as a result.
They're great guys who do it all round though, and I need a reason to get out more.
I'm looking forward to Christmas, as ever, it's never lost the lustre it had for me as a child, it's just changed slightly. I appreciate more that the whole family gets together again, and that there's a Christmas dinner that so many people seem to complain about with regards to dry turkey and other things I don't think I've ever had.
The cold's always an issue, but being a Northern Englishman, I prefer to convince people I don't feel it rather than bring it up.
Personally I can't wait for the holiday XD
