It’s my birthday, and I’ll cry if I want to

Warning: This post was published more than 13 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 13 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  • Factual information might be outdated.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.

But I don’t want to.

Here’s a birthday treat from me to you. With all of the constant exposés in the papers of the lives of former celebrities, have you ever found yourself wondering, “What ever happened to Alvin, Simon and Theodore?”. The Chipmunks tell the real story, here.

My ears still feel like construction of the bacterial equivalent of the Channel Tunnel is well underway, thanks to me being blighted for two weeks (it’s the two-week anniversary of the bacteria moving in today) with Otitis Externa.

And in other news, I am the only person to have noticed that Tony Blair has NOT, repeat NOT announced that he will hold a referendum on the EU Constitution? In his speech he promised a referendum before the introduction of the Euro, but only that “The electorate should be asked for their opinion” on the EU Constitution. He apparently asked for our opinion on stuff in the Big Conversation. And besides, if he’s only asking for our opinion that does not stop him from saying that we’re just poorly informed, and going ahead with it anyway.

That’s all for now. I’m sure that my LBSC Birthday Present much just be delayed in the post.
