Diary for 8th May 2008

close

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

This post was published more than 11 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 11 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and wrote about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

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

  • My views may well have changed in the last 11 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and 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.
