The really really boring and totaly pointless snippets of information thread
Just got back from the park, it was overcast but the sun has come out now.
My beans and lettuces are doing well.
Think I will make some tea.

PS, Somebody dropped a full pint bottle of milk in my street earlier today, it broke of course.

The M1 was ok this morning, not too bad at all in fact.

It was just starting to get light at 3.45am this morning, it was daylight by 4.20am this morning.

My cat slept on my bed this morning...and she never does that.

oh and last night when I got in the central heating had been on and so for aroubd 4 hours...TCs house became a sauna for the whole street.

I like brown bread, but I do not like toast made from brown bread, dunno why, just one of them things I guess.

under_exposed 5th Jun 2003 20:44

My current diary does not have a map of the London underground.

One normaly purchaces a loaf of white bread simply to make toast soldiers to accompany ones boiled egg in the mornings, something went wrong today, one had no white bread left.
One was forced to improvise, one made soldiers out of raw brown bread and butter, they were satifactory, if a tad bendy.
Nobody has swept up that broken milk bottle yet.

iainpoll 5th Jun 2003 20:58

I had two coffees this morning, a total of 8 shots of expresso. My hands are shaking only slightly.

PilotsPal 5th Jun 2003 21:00

Only 5 weeks till the Jimmy Choo summer sale.

under_exposed 5th Jun 2003 21:11

Can I borrow your diary Rugz ?

Rugz 5th Jun 2003 21:12

You could, except for another interesting piece of info, I've mislayed it somewhere this morning and I can't find the little bleeder....

Is Draper nicking more than just posts???? :suspect:

tony draper 5th Jun 2003 21:15

The sun rose at 4.31 AM this morning, it will set at 9.39 PM tonignt, all things being equal that is.

topcat450 5th Jun 2003 21:20

My dragon tree is looking a bit sorry for itself, I'll pull the dead bits off later.

Minestrone Cupp-a-soup - whilst being OK...it isn't a filling lunch.

treadigraph 5th Jun 2003 21:21

I exactly have four hours and twenty five minutes before I can leave the office to go to the pub - though, of course, when you read this it will be less, or may even have happened. Oh thta's four hours and twenty four minutes now...

I changed my winter duvet for my summer duvet last week.

Brown bread becomes too hard when toasted - doesn't absorb butter and go all gooey like white bread.

T_richard 5th Jun 2003 21:22

I have a Tide Tool in my Palm Pilot Vx that tells me the high and low tides each day as well as sunrise, sunset and phases of the moon.

The next high tide is at 1237 hrs EDT, the next low tide is 1731 hrs EDT

LITOW 5th Jun 2003 21:23

Just eaten a Tunnocks Caramel Wafer. I forgot how good they are

tony draper 5th Jun 2003 21:25

When one gives the matter some thought though, this being a multi cultural multi ethnic society,there is probably a large sector of our population that does like toast made from brown bread.

Mr Richard,far be it for me to correct you, but rather like sunrise and sunset, it depends where you are.
Any decent 5 agent could work out where you live from the information you just supplied.

slim_slag 5th Jun 2003 21:26

I wonder where my belly button fluff has gone, there was some there last time I looked.

singaporegirl 5th Jun 2003 21:27

My diary has a section for personal expenses.

Evening Star 5th Jun 2003 21:27

I choose not to download a map of the London Underground into my Palm Vx.

I have over 150 posts! It must be about time I clicked and ordered a Personal Title.

tony draper 5th Jun 2003 21:33

Heres a tip, buy one of those really thick desk diaries,someone bought me one in 1997 I am still using it and theres still lots of pages left, they last for years.

pigboat 5th Jun 2003 21:34

My current diary does not have a map of either the London underground or the London aboveground.

HugMonster 5th Jun 2003 21:37

I've got an old watch strap sitting on my desk. It's alongside a letter from my sister.

I put an empty milk bottle out earlier.

CR2 5th Jun 2003 21:37

Me palm Vx is broke. Got the boss to sign a requisition form for a new colour jobbie this afternoon. Don't really need it, but hey, why not? Bit of free shiny kit.

IFTB 5th Jun 2003 21:40

My word! Those are big ones! I wonder where she got them from!

FlyingForFun 5th Jun 2003 21:41

I missed the start of this thread, because I was out to lunch.


singaporegirl 5th Jun 2003 21:43


Did you go by London underground?

iainpoll 5th Jun 2003 21:45

Today is the fourth day of my jury service, I have only been required to attend court on two days so far. I will not be required again until Monday, its unlikely I will even get on a case. Amongst 80 jurors, every single one is white.

IFTB 5th Jun 2003 21:46

My cat is looking disgusted at me while I dubble up behind the keyboard.
You think he can read?

T_richard 5th Jun 2003 21:47

I put out a milk bottle and a juice bottle today. I wonder where they go? My milk bottles are big

Mr. Draper treats me with a respect I fear I do not deserve, but I also fear he will stalk me using astronomy:{

Rugz 5th Jun 2003 21:51

I have, among the many objects on my desk at work, a bright yellow rubber duck.

Don't know where it came from or what's it name is, but it is now 'part of the team'.

Tricky Woo 5th Jun 2003 21:51

It's very sunny here. It may rain this weekend, but it probably won't. The sun is good for the flowers on the balcony. Unless there's too much sun. Too much sun is bad for the flowers.

Too little rain is also bad for the flowers. Too much rain is even worse. Just enough rain is good for the flowers. Really really good.

Just enough sun and just enough rain is good for the flowers. Life is rarely that kind, so I have to water the bloody flowers on a regular basis.

More trouble than they're worth.

Bloody flowers.


tony draper 5th Jun 2003 21:51

I stopped having my milk delivered to the doorstep, a large dog used to come along my steet and steal it, that statment is perfectly true, I have video tape evidence of the felonous hound in the very act.

Hmmm, you grow flowers Mr Woo????

Tricky Woo 5th Jun 2003 21:54

Also too much wind. Forgot to say that before. Too much wind blows the bloody flower petals off.

No, I don't grow flowers, Herr D. I just water the bloody flowers, and then they grow themselves.

More trouble than they're worth.


LITOW 5th Jun 2003 21:58

My boss is on the web buying a pair of leather chaps at the moment

iainpoll 5th Jun 2003 22:00

I need to mow the lawn:(

tony draper 5th Jun 2003 22:00

Hmmm it is as I suspected, 37 posts in under two hours, just goes to show Mr ONAN that even the most mindless banality is infinitly more interesting that cricket.

Hmmm, your not one of these chaps that engages his plants in conversation as you water them are you Mr Woo??

GotTheTshirt 5th Jun 2003 22:03


Do these chaps work for low wages then ??

IFTB 5th Jun 2003 22:08

Rugz 5th Jun 2003 22:10

Time for tea perhaps IFTB? :E
