Dear America

You have a big chance to make history and, at a stroke, make up for 8 years of chaos and blundering on the world stage. When I wake up tomorrow morning, I expect Barack Obama to be President-Elect, otherwise I’ll be… really quite upset. Thank you.

Liverpool to London with Virgin Trains? For £10.60 return? Yes, I think I will buy that. 🙂

Some sort of title should go here

A nice man from Virgin Media came round to my house this morning and replaced my cable modem, restoring my internet connection to its former glory. It’s been flaky since the middle of last week, finally giving up the ghost on Friday evening. I am now fully back online, thus avoiding the horror of talking to REAL people instead of via Facebook. Yay!

Now I just have to catch up on a week’s worth of Lolcats.

Christian Voice are causing trouble again. If Jesus’s message is as strong as they say it is, why is a book of poetry so threatening?

Superlambanana Calendar!

Surely the must-have date-related item for 2009:

Official Superlambanana Calendar 2009

I’d provide a link to buy one online — but I can’t find one! The only place I’ve seen them on sale is the Calendar Club stand in Clayton Square Shopping Centre.

Anyone who fails to keep their ID cards updated will be fined a thousand quid. Bet you can’t wait to “voluntarily” get one now!

As long as Wilkinson keep going, I’ll be fine

To commemorate the demise of Woolworths, here’s an aspect of their business which has stuck in my memory far more than pick’n’mix, cheap board games (4 in a Row!) and electrical items you don’t really need.

Yes, it’s one of those weird adverts they used to show every Christmas, which were nothing more than a clip from a film or music video with a few captions stuck on top. YouTube is a wonderful thing.
