At long bloody last old people can get the free phone option with mobiles. All along it was a landline only option. Makes complete sense to give free phones to OAPs. A Dom Jolly sketch comes to mind “HELLO? WHAT? NO, I’M COLLECTING MY PENSION. NO, THEY ALL SMELL OF PISS.”
Jesus Christ, I thought Sascha Baron-Cohen was taking the piss when he said Borat was attending the holocaust denial conference. I guess not. Taking the piss that there was such a conference I mean.
In airplanes I do my very very best to sit in odd number rows.
When I die I really would prefer some violent impact type death then slowly fading away while being eaten alive by cancer.
When I worked in a hospital I saw dozens of dead people and had to move most of them down to the fridges where they are kept before the undertakers arrive. It really never phased me as an 18 year old. The one death that still haunts me is of a baby that died of cot death. I can still see her in the arms of the ambulance driver as he ran into the resuscitation room and still hear her mother crying outside as they worked on her baby .
Part of the reason I’m doing my law degree is so that I can hopefully make use of it in some way to get some legal rights so that I can marry the guy I love. (It’s all about the tax benefits really!
Like the rows in a plane, I have a personal rule that lists always have to end in uneven numbers.
Liam Daly has some quite nice Irish paintings on special offer on his sales site. 99 dollars plus 25 dollars postage. Which is less than 100 euros when you do the currency conversion (or thereabouts). It’d make a nice investment or a present for someone.
Was away all week, working from the Paris office so I don’t really have enough for fluffy links today. Instead I want to try something I’ve seen work on other blogs: I’ll turn over this post to those that read this. Any links you want to suggest or topics you want to debate, just stick them in here. Don’t forget to engage with the others who leave comments.
I’m in not-terribly-dire but definitely some kind of need to update my Irish links list on the front page of my Le/An/The/Blog. If I am not linking to you, then let me know and I’ll add you to the list or maybe I won’t. I’m in a moody mood.
