Update

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  • Factual information might be outdated.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...

Ever encouraging reader participation, here’s an update on this post from June last year, which I received via email today.

I googled for their page since I couldn’t find it and found your post
regarding it. You forget to mention that GetFitta doesn’t only mean pussy,
(fitta) but Getfitta means goat pussy.

It doesn’t really help that their slogan is(was?) “It’s time to get fitta”.

So thank you for that.

And in an update on my babies: I have two, one of each sex. I emailed the girl, who seems nice enough, and phoned the boy, who also seems nice enough if a little confused (having said that, it was almost certainly my fault, and I’ve emailed him now to try and explain things a little more sanely)

I’m returning to uni in time for freshers’ next week, actually going and moving in to my shiny new house on Friday. Still lots to organise, as ever, such as getting phone line(s) installed, and other little bits and pieces. So I guess I better get on with it…
