Birthday message… and a bit of a whoopsie

close

Warning: This post was published more than 10 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 10 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

As promised… Happy Birthday Coire! Hope you have a really good day!

And, in other news, apologies for the fact that the site ‘went a bit weird’ for the last twelve hours or so. I’d love to say it was someone else’s fault, but it wasn’t. It was mine. Entirely. Wrong button you see.

I always told you people like me shouldn’t have their finger on the button. Any button. Oops.

I know I claim that this is a topical blog, and the biggest (and most predictable) story of the year has just broken… Apparently, some very ill and frail (some say moribund) 69 year-old pensioner is to be hanged in a country that is claimed to be free, fair, and modern.

But, meh, it’s my blog and I’ll post crap if I want to… And anyway, it’s not like it’s the first time this guy has been sentenced to death – and it didn’t seem to do much in the 1950s. Everyone complains that ‘life’ doesn’t mean ‘life’ – it seems ‘death’ doesn’t necessarily mean ‘death’, either. 😉

Hehe… I will make sure I find out all about it! The smilies are a bit unusual… They’re mainly two characters, eg : plus ) equals 🙂 – I didn’t design them, blame the WordPress software!
