Rangas are revolting! Well they should be anyway! :-)

First up I would like to thank my pal, Jack McKenzie, for posting this news story on Facebook last week and potentially stealing the thunder from this blog. Thankfully very few people bother to read his posts so there should still be a lot of people who haven’t seen it. 🙂

Once again the redheads of the world are under attack. As if a lifetime of taunts, the constant threat from the sun, and the knowledge that, in about four generations, they may no longer exist is not  enough, now sperm banks are trying to speed the process up by refusing to take their sperm. Enough is enough I say! As an ardent fan of rangas, I’m on the heaven side of this, I think it is time for them to stand up and revolt! And it is time for us all to join them.

Do we really want to live in a world without gingers? 🙂


Marking time, in more ways that one! :-)

I do apologise for the lack of blogging that has a been going on, or more correctly not going on, recently but at the moment I am up to ears in one of my least favorite activities. Marking assignments.

It seriously messes with my mojo. 🙂 It is a combination of not liking judging people, the occasional scratching of my head at what some people write and having to read 35 assignments of 3000 words that are all basically the same. It has to be done but it does leave me decidedly short of inspiration. So instead of my normally witty and erudite commentary you get a qoute from my desk calendar. 🙂

“The mindset that says “I will be happy when this desire is fulfilled” is the same mindset that will repeat itself once that desire is met”

Thank you, dads.

Fathers Day hey. The kind of day that makes one thankful for what one has. I hope my dad knows how amazing he is but I took the chance to tell him again today anyway. But I also wanted to say thanks to all the fathers out there who made my friends as amazing as they are and to my family and the friends who have allowed me to experience fatherhood through their kids. 🙂  And, to those fathers who haven’t been there for their kids as much as they should have been, can I express my condolences for the joy you have missed out on.

Happy Fathers Day dads!
