@spendius,
Yeah cats are like that. Me oriented or what? They leave normal human emotions to, well humans.

British Blue? Wasn't that the parrot in the Monty Python sketch?

Went to see Gran Torino last night...

I must be out of step - I didn't much care for it.

@smorgs,

I was going to go to see that. Probably still will.

I didn't think Slumdog Millionaire was that good.

I see one of the soldiers killed in Afghanistan this week was a Corporal Stiff.

Isn't that awful.

@margo,

Looks like the British are all dead, Margo. That only leaves thee and me.
Let's commence on our task to re-populate the planet.

@smorgs,
That the whole idea of feminism. It was a MCP trick to stop you all lolling about in sun-loungers complaining about not having "anything to go in" like women used to do.

Did you not know that smorgsie? We have even made it easy to get to work for you with direction signs everywhere so you don't get lost.

Yes, I know that, spends...

Now you've invented the Satnav as well, I can be told where to go whilst putting my lippy on in the vanity mirror, save me looking at all those (confusing) signs.

On a lighter note: I spent ages looking for my purple car in a massive car-park yesterday, only to remember that I had a new blue one...

I must have looked proper batty on CCTV.

It's a good job public servants are keeping demand up for these things. It would be at a nice discount too in these market conditions. A sort of stealth pay rise.

It gets more like the defunct Soviet Union every day around here.

@spendius,

The public sector will always lag behind, but we're all in the same boat in the end.

@McTag,
I don't know about that Mac. Unless you mean if the lights go out and the currency becomes worthless. Outside of that we are not all in the same boat at all.

Hundreds of deaths in a hospital and at the same time people who we have put through medical training at great expense are doing boob jobs and tummy tucks in converted country houses.

Oh, oh! From the BBC:
Quote:
Ex-pat Scots who live in England and Wales are twice as likely to die from alcohol-related conditions than the locals, a study has found.

@Walter Hinteler,
But them being ex-pats might be a factor. I remember going on holiday once a fair way from my home patch and I found the natives very confusing. Confusion is said to create psychosomatic disorders and one might expect those who create confusion to seek an explanation elsewhere and what better than boozing with its reputation for wasting money when it could be better spent on frocks, soft furnishings, Black and Decker workmates and boxes of well over designed chocolates at a price at least a thousand times above the cocoa, lard and sugar ingredients when bought by the ton. Ahem! Tonne.

The BBC sold out to the distaff side many years ago when it realised that its main audience consisted of overweight, stupid and lazy couchies addicted to glitzy colour and movement, accompanied by hysterically cheering claques, and bodice ripping melodramas in which women were victimised at the hands of cruel, tough and ruthless men, whilst eating, farting and feeling hard done to.
