About me

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

close

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

This post was published more than 14 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 14 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 14 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  • Factual information might be outdated.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...

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.
