That’s all I have to say.

Does anyone want to buy my TV?

You Know What They Say About Brevity…

September 3, 2011

I was wondering when they would get around to this:

Worth the license fee ten times over and almost makes up for the Jonathan Ross debacle.

This is what Our Esteemed Leader has to say: ”We all do stupid things when we are young’.

Indeed. I couldn’t agree more. One thing I didn’t do though was regard smashing up expensive restaurants as a rite of passage.

I’ve no doubt we’ll soon get a missive from The Greatest Doctor In The Entire Universe explaining why there is no moral equivalence between lower class feral brats rioting and upper class feral brats rioting.

Addendum: Criminal damage is criminal damage. And it’s against the law. Could members of the Bullingdon Club still be prosecuted for their actions?

Now that would be interesting.

on euthanasia, in the wake of a number of British citizens travelling to Dignitas in Switzerland.  It can be found here. They are described as a ‘Swiss assisted suicide (euthanasia) group that helps those with incurable physical and mental illnesses’.

The possibility for voluntary euthanasia for the mentally ill is hardly ever addressed.  It’s too controversial.  We too are trapped not by physical pain but by emotional pain.  I am not asking for your empathy.  I am not even asking for your sympathy.  I am only asking to be heard.  I can’t do what you want me to do.  I cannot be like you.  All the medication in the world will never be enough.  Nobby is the only thing that is anchoring me to this life, and as much as I hate to acknowledge this, he is the only human being on the planet I can relate to in any meaningful way.  With other people it is as though there is an invisible, soundproof wall that descends and stands between us whenever I try to initiate contact.  I am screaming and pounding on the wall until my fists are bloodied but I remain unheard.  I can see and hear them but they are not even aware of my existence.

Dr S says that I look nothing like Karen Matthews.
Dr S says I am nothing like Karen Matthews.
He says I do not deserve to die
I say he is wrong.

I fell asleep.  Well done, America.  Now for that healthcare free at the point of delivery.  I really, really hope Obama delivers.  I guess socialism is no longer a dirty word in the U.S.  Maybe it will cease to be a dirty word here too.  Some of my natural cynicism has been eroded.  I have never been so pleased to be wrong in my life.

Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,
But to be young was very heaven!-

More Than Just a Pretty Girl

Heard about this from the BBC.  Interesting idea.

And in other news a ginger Tom invades Nobby’s flat:

Charming, cute and, quite simply, adorable.
