Oh yeah of little faith II!:-)

We can still do it…we can still win the Ashes. Just hang on in there and have a little faith. Haddin – 250, Johnson 201 and another 200+ from the last 3 batsmen and bingo!

On a different note, what is the going rate for a tooth from the Tooth Fairy these days? πŸ™‚

You have to admire their balls!

You have to admire the Republican Party in the US….

Do I look like I button up the back? :-)

Those of you that know me will know of my deep and meaningful love of the media. πŸ™‚ And now I have reason to love them even more. Nothing plays with my heart strings and makes me fall deeper in love then when someone treats me like an idiot. So at the moment I am just falling head over heels!

The TV stations current idea of ‘classic’ episodes is just so obviouslyΒ  treating us like f*&k-wits that I cannot help but be impressed by the level of disdain in which they hold me…and it just makes me want them even more! πŸ™‚

Once upon a time ‘classic’ episodes were known as repeats…

Oh ye of little faith!:-P

I never doubted them for one second…I knew that the Australian side had it in them to come back from one down and level the series. I might be jumping the gun a bit…something might happen tomorrow and the English might pull off a miracle…but I never doubted Australia for a minute!

Oh, and I still believe in Santa Claus! πŸ™‚

Naaahhh, naaahhh, naaahhh…I’m not listening! :-)

OH….MY….GOD!!!! The ABC news have just informed me that one of the things that the information coming out of Wikileaks has shown us is that what politicians are telling us in public might not be what they are thinking in private! Nooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!! That simply can’t be true!!! Don’t shatter my fundamental beliefs…a politician would never do that! Next they’ll be telling me that Santa Claus doesn’t exist!

No, wait, what I meant to say was ‘NO SHIT, SHERLOCK’!!! πŸ™‚

Harry Potter…I’m so confused!!!:-(

Can someone PLEASE explain Harry Potter to me??? Please!!!!!! I know I am probably behind the eight ball because I haven’t read any of the books. But I have seen all the films…and it still doesn’t make any sense to me.

Let me explain. I went along last night with my brother and a various assortment of kids, all appropriately decked out as a variety of wizards, goblins, death-eaters etc, to see Harry Potter and the Hallowed Something. And it was alright I guess but I just so don’t get it. Isn’t he supposed to be some kind of super wizard? I thought that was the central theme of the whole thing. But honestly he seems about as useless as tits on a bull. I mean, can he actually do any magic? He seems to have nice range of parlour tricks but whenever he actually needs to do something useful he comes up empty. Or, to be more precise, sometimes he can really turn in on and other times he seems like a gormless twat. πŸ™‚

At one point he, Hermione and the Ginger One are confronted by a group of body-snatchers…or something…who I would have thought would have been a bit lower on the magic scale than the Chosen One. But when confronted with this numerically superior, but magically inferior force, is their first move to grab their wands to magic the body-snatchers arses? No…they run. Then, after their inevitable capture, they are taken by the body-snatchers to the house of some baddy witches and warlocks, who, angry at the body-snatchers for something, proceed to dispatch them in about 2 seconds flat. Okay, I’m a little skeptical at this point but hey, maybe the baddy witches and warlock are better magicians…but then Harry, Hermione and the Ginger One kick their arses, no problems. Sooooooooo, they can’t beat the body-snatchers but they can beat the baddy witches and warlocks…who can kick the body-snatchers arses in no time flat??

I’m soooooo confused…or do I smell convenient plot device? πŸ™‚

It’s official, we have finally lost it!

Well folks, what do you say when the you realise that your species has reached the peak of its decadence and that surely it is only a heartbeat away from total global destruction with the associated post-apocalyptic Mad Max-ish society and landscape? Okay, so maybe just a tad of exaggeration (my mother told me a billion times never to exaggerate…geez I crack myself up! πŸ™‚ ) but a friend told me a story the other day that suggests we aren’t that far away.

You see, her neighbours were moving and had got a skip to dump a load of junk they didn’t want to take into. My friend had a nosey and noticed a near new double mattress on the top of the pile. So she asked her friend…it was a month old! They couldn’t be bothered with the hassle of taking it with them…okay, they are moving to Queensland so can maybe see their argument. But what about a charity? Nope, couldn’t be bothered with that either! So my friend decided to take the mattress….she has been promising her daughter a double bed, so half that problem solved. But then full problem solved…as my friend was lifting the mattress off she noticed a big box in the skip under it…brand new double bed, box not even opened!

Seriously, have we really reached a point where ordinary, everyday folk can just throw a brand new double bed and mattress into a skip because they can’t be bothered moving it with them…or contacting a charity to take it?

Btw, should you ever find yourself in this sticky situation try Freecycle… to quote the site ‘it’s a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (and getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It’s all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills’. You’ll be amazed the things that you don’t need but that others are happy to take off your hands.
