Horrible gray lowering wall to wall clag here,seemingly about fifty foot above me head., not raining though, mobbed by Canada geese again this morning, ill mannered feathered louts.
All in all a thougherly depressing day, the sight of Lorrains knees have cheered one up somewhat though.

.....Yech!

Have just read that a Seattle based soft drinks manufacturer is making a soft drink flavoured to taste like turkey & gravy.

Apparently even its creator thinks it tastes disgusting but pairs of the 99 cent bottles are changing hand for more than $70 on Ebay.

Ozzy, thats it! You may have located the weapons of mass destruction that everyone has been looking for in Iraq.

In the hands of certain UK based Rail Maintenance companies, rail components can be a weapon of mass destruction. Maybe if they were trained by some of the UK companies . . . .

Right I've had my haircut today...you'll be pleased to hear. It was Adam and not my usual thong wearing bit of fluff who did it...he did an OK job though - although the view of him cutting it wasn't a patch on my usual lass.
Any ladies wishing to inspect sharp-lookin' TopCat please PM for a discreet appointment.


Next jobs, finish email to Vladimir...phone Warren, Check Lou's sorted, get paper work ready for Jim, I'll leave calling Ian until the morning..err..that'll do me thinks.



Why's today turning out to be soooo busy???

I like Orangutangs they is a peace loving critter,not like Slugs, vicious bastards they were,
That professor Horner is wrong, they were definatly hunters not scavengers,yer dont need 15 inch serrated teeth and the ability to run at 30 mph, if yer just a scavenger.

'tis a beautiful crisp autumnal morning here.

I was right below a Cathay 747 this morning, on the M1 as it went overhead at 100ft just seconds from landing on runway 27 at East Midlands. Cracking sight... It's gonna be a good day...

In the old days when offices had wattle and Daub walls, one could fix them ones self, one just went outside picked up some mud and dung and daubed in on the wall, hense the name daub, in Wattle and Daub, not sure if that is the correct spelling of daub, and one has no idea where one obtains wattle.

More motorway triv. The M25 does not go right round London.
The Dartford tunnel/bridge bit is the A282.

Tis woven sticks Mr D. Usually hazel. Look in Yellow Pages under Wattlerys.

Won 25 euro on the lotto this morning. Any suggestions on what to do with it?

Er, any polite suggestions on what to do with it?

Won HK$42,000 once in the Hong Kong lottery. Paid for most of me PPL. That, and a bottle of Black Tower won in an office draw, constitute all of my winnings over a lifetime.

Won a plastic dinosaur at KFC once........

Don't suppose I should tell you what I told them to do with it!

Oh yeah, won some tinned food from Tesco once, tasted funny though, said it was "cat food" on the label. Cats don't taste very nice!
