Diary for 8th May 2008

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 10 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how 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 very well have changed in the 10 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

I am not a horse, and hence have no desire to eat from a bucket. If someone told KFC, maybe they’d stop irritating me with their awful ads. «

Fast food is for fast horses. It is not too good for people.
Stay away from those kinds of places and eat at your mothers house, especially on Mothers Day.
Happy Mothers Day to all the Mothers who read this blog.

In the UK, Mothers’ Day was on 2nd March this year… So you’re a bit late!

But Happy Mothers’ Day to all the Mothers celebrating today!

The UK was formed before the USA so therefore the mothers came first there also.
So a belated Happy Mothers Day to you Britt mums and Happy Mothers Day Sunday for our Yankee mamas.

“From plate to bucket is a very large step. Yet from bucket to trough is a very small step.” I can’t rember where I heard that but it is both funny and true. Be warned bucket fans I can see your nose starting to turn up.
