So why am I not being inundated with virus emails? Does no one like me?

Are you surprised that we have to actually maintain our railways? It seems many are.

Friendship by Blog

Posted on 22 August 2003 in Internet, Life (No comments yet - be the first!)

Wendy has a new MP3 player, and Paul and Andrew C can only communicate by the power of blog entries. And Mark Radcliffe has been to Ashton a few times. And does anyone actually read this rubbish?

A Train From Manchester

In contrast to the Virgin Pendolinos, you can get on Midland Mainline’s new service from Manchester to London. Older trains, but lovely scenery. Shame it was just so late…

Fame, Grease and a deposit

So here I am. I live in a flat. Next door lives quite a famous blogger. Yes. He of MovableBlag.com. Yes. He of the big time famous dude. I say lives as that’s not quite true. In fact it’s false as he moved out the other week.

Ugh. Hot.

Posted on 7 August 2003 in Shopping (No comments yet - be the first!)

It’s hot. Yesterday was the hotest day in London ever. Even worse, we have no fan in the flat and Argos are too busy flogging models of Father Christmas with flashing lights.

Political Correctness my arse

Posted on 4 August 2003 in Television (No comments yet - be the first!)

Funny how when anyone ever mutters the words "political correctness" in association with the curent BBC One idents, they always point to the one where there’s a black man in a wheelchair, doing some wheelchair dancing
