I got paid the £140 I was owed from the payslip before, and I had a day's work today shoving stuff in a mixer, which wasn't too onerous.

You're making "fruit smoothies"?

Is it that red spongy stuff?

Once, on a lark, me and my friends played a game of tag where we threw chunks of it at each other. I was the winner once I hit Grant in the eye, eliciting the paterfrater howl.

It didn't occur to us at the time, when we thought it most subversive, but said subversiveness was sadly predicated on the greater prior subversiveness of older boys carving it up in the first place.

Still, we had some fun in those days.

Good news Dan, but blimey that's been a long haul.  The poor thing, not to mention your poor family.

Too true, it's been a very scary few weeks as she didn't seem to be responding to treatment at all. My bro's now sending out regular e-mail updates as everyone's been banned from keep ringing to find out how she is - every time the phone went he had a near heart attack thinking it may be bad news!

Some of it is. They save that for putting shapes in. The stuff I was mixing was just black. They left hollows to be filled with coloured stuff. I'd say it was pretty subversive to go injuring one another with safe play material. Well done.

Good news Dan

Yeah, I'll say. It must have been awful for your whole family, especially your poor niece herself. Glad to hear she has improved so much and is recovering.
STRIKE !!!

Great news Dan, and i hope that things now move swiftly and she's back on her feet in no time. It mustve been a bloody nightmare for your whole family.

My slightly sort of okay news is ive just picked up Origins off Play.com for £4.99 inc postage, in their sale.

And and and- and this i am very excited about- all 159 episodes of the original Twilight Zone on dvd for £16 inc postage, from eBay. Okay, so they arent exactly official releases, but as its my favourite tv show ever and there's no way I'll ever have the cash for the complete series any other way, im willing to overlook the dubious legality. "in the public domain" due to the fifty year rule, it says. Ahem!

I loathe the self-important faithless cocksuckers my wife has to work with/for, and regularly pass an idle minute imagining their painful undoing.  If we didn't need their filthy money so much I'd be up there every second spitting every ounce of biliious venom I could conjure  in their ignorant bullying faces.  However for once she's getting a bit of a break - right now she's in Brussels for four days at a conference at their expense.  Not only is she finding it interesting and self-affirming, but she just rang me from a slap-up freebie dinner in (allegedly) Europe's largest dinsosaur gallery at the Belgian Museum of Natural Sciences.

I've just discovered that the Meg goes for a very decent price on clickwheel! This could well be my jumping on point after all these years! :D

I believe so.  Heading off to the airport to retrieve the wife this morning, there'd better be good notes.

Just discovered the SAYNOTO0870.COM website.

I've been looking for a way to stick it to 50p per minute "Customer Service" lines and this may be it.  We may be bastards in Banks but as far as I know, we don't charge you to call us up.
 
Be excellent to each other. And party on!
