We are just at the beginning of the endless comment on the Blair years but I think rather than listening to the journalists I’m just going to listen to the people on the street like this old lady on the BBC website: “Iraq will always stand over him, the poor chap, he meant well. Saddam Hussein was a horrible man, but I think it was really none of our business.” To the point.
I rely on bloglines to feed me BBC news. Actually this isn’t a bloglines problem it’s a BBC problem because since Thursday I have been getting news as usual and it wasn’t till Thursday night that I found out about the Royal Wedding. Not that I really want to know about Royal Wedding, but even now, and it is Saturday now, the BBC still have’t told me it’s happening. It makes me a bit worried that there is something else they aren’t telling me.
I set my alarm for 2am and 5am last night to hear election updates but I think I stayed awake for about 8 seconds. I knew what the result was going to be though. It’s a very depressing day and I think it was very shortsighted of us to plan an election party tonight. I wonder if we can change the theme at the last minute?
I’m sure these triplets appear in the news every year, all getting triple A A levels and all going to Cambridge.
I am speaking to applicants today who are looking for places in clearing and so far 95% of people wish to study Physiotherapy. I’m getting a bit bored of it.
There is an argument between Michael Moore and Pete Townsend because MM wanted to use a PT song in Fahrenheit 911 and PT wouldn’t let him. PT is calling MM a bully because when he refused to let him use the song MM apparently said that PT must be pro-war. All very silly but not as sill as PT saying “… he’ll have to work very, very hard to convince me that a man with a camera is going to change the world more effectively than a man with a guitar.” I wonder what kind of guitar PT has.
How exciting. I am up at 7.45am on a Saturday morning, listening to the Today programme and they tell me that it is national pin hole camera day tomorrow. Then Tom’s friend Justin Quinnell was interviewed as a pin hole camera expert, which he is, and he said he was taking a pin hole picture of the Today studio which is taking him 2 hours. I think it might be a bit blurry as you couldn’t stay still for 2 hours.
I sent Tom a text when Justin came on. I wonder if he appreciated it so early on a saturday morning.
Oh dear…. Text from Tom: “ooh I am so asleep! sleep..sleep..” I’m sure he can take advantage of the listen again function on radio 4. I must think before I text.
This man is 8ft 4in!!!!!!!!! His feet are size TWENTY THREE so I could fit 4 of my feet in one of his shoes. He also seems to have a tree growing through his roof, which somehow makes sense.
01:38 From Tom: omg I’m in new york and it’s snowing! amazing. most amazing flight ever..too much to tell. i had pizza on the plane! on the airtrain now..it’s so snowy! xx
02:08 From Jack and Micky: Beautiful girl born 7.45pm Wed 17 Mar in Wales. Horrid, very long sleepless labour. Mother and baby well. Very proud of both. Will speak soon. Jack x
eeeeeh! I’m so happy!
This is a three-headed frog and it was found near Bristol by some school children. They thought it was funny but I think it’s the most disturbing thing I have ever seen.
a glass ceiling has fallen on swimmers in the Transvaal swimming pool in Moscow.
I love swimming upside down in Bristol South pool because is has such a nice roof, but just can’t imagine how awful it would be if it fell on me.
Interestingly – on the Transvaal site which is in Russian – FAQ is still FAQ.
I didn’t know it was a universal thing.
