I used to blog feverishly. Now I just post links to interesting things.

Yesterday Tony Blair dismissed claims

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

Yesterday Tony Blair dismissed claims that the Labour campaign was being dominated by spin and presentation. Resplendent in a white toga, sandals, and hand crafted Thorn crown, Mr. Blair said “I can’t understand what all this spin nonsense is about. Indeed, it was prophesised in the holy manifesto that I would face such doubters and opposition amongst the press, however as my father instructed me, I shall forgive ye for your mis-writings, for ye are only human”.
Mr. Blair then left with his cross to spread the word to people.

Having been thru the Hanger

Having been thru the Hanger Lane Gyratory System a couple of weeks ago, I can fully vouch for the full horror of it in rush hour. A handy, and very funny guide to negotiating it is here.

I’ve launched the wibbler.com webring. Unfortunately, It’s a little unreliable at the moment, thanks to the incompetent fools at Yahoo. They’re probably very nice people, but they obviously can’t run a Webring for toffee at the moment. Anyway, have a go at signing up if you have the time… it might even work…!

Hmmm. I’ve got an exam tomorrow. Now, when you think of exams, you think of a test of knowledge that you’ve leqarnt and memorised from textbooks. Except for this exam, I can take in as many relevant books and notes as I like. Kinda defeats the object, doesn’t it? Not that I’m complaining, of course…

Mental Note: Never stare absent-mindedly at a passing guy in a wheelchair. Not only do you get an earful from said wheelchair-bound person, but you may come within an inch of losing your life as you wander into the road to avoid the fool.

My good friend Jac has thrown together an amusing site for him and his Cardiff Uni housemates under the boastful title ‘Letty Street Legends’. Have a look – endless tales of Jac’s love life. Superb.

Just when I thought my day couldn’t get any duller, along came this gem of a story from my friend David B. It seems he was sitting at his computer, looking for something to do one night. David takes up the story…

“…well I was looking for music on Limewire [internet file-sharing software like Napster, used to illegally download copyrighted songs] (i think ‘queen good old fashioned lover boy’ – bad string to put into the internet I know) and came up with songs etc – i think as i clicked to download a song the list got bigger and I ended up not noticing that I had started to download child porn – at this point I had a problem: could delete it, but was concerned about how these things are traced and can stay on computer – so I ended up speaking to a friend who does law and they said I should tell police. So… phoned up this unit and, a bit nervous, sort of didn’t say what i meant and made it sound like i had been LOOKING FOR CHILD PORN TO DOWNLOAD – fortunately copper asked me to be careful with what i say and re-word it. Unfortunately the rewording ended up being a large explanation of me downloading copyrighted material (luckily cop didn’t seem too worried about this). So anyway end of it is okay I hope – but careful what you put on limewire from now on as had to tell him service I was using.”

Excellent. 😉

Now here’s a strange thing

Now here’s a strange thing – just been munching some Walker’s Smoky Bacon crisps. It says on the side “Suitable for vegetarians”. Oh. Even stranger, their Cheese and Onion crisps are apparently not suitable for ’em…
