"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Two For The Road

In between flooding toilets (I'm in a flat) and a laptop that insists on telling me it can't start so has to do automatic repairs, I haven't got much done today, at all. In hindsight, it would have been better if I'd stopped fretting about it and just painted my toenails instead.

It's probably for the best that I haven't posted, given the mood I'm in and that nothing seems to have moved on from yesterday or last week/year. Essentially, the loonies are still in charge of the world's governments and we're f/cked (*pemf). We don't really need to know more, except, perhaps, how to hoard canned food without looking like an escapee from Bedlam, or how to light a fire with a few twigs and fashion a dagger from flint without looking like an escapee from the SAS with ptsd.

While I look up the address of the landlord ("Oh, how quaint, it has an original Victorian bathroom" - yes, and the flipping Victorian plumbing too you money-grabbing numbnut, you everything-is-tax-deductible-including-my-wife cheapskate) and a proper pc with a bit of bite, here are two from my blogroll:

A barrel of fish for Pingu
2ozs of Pear Drops for Max

  1. Sorry to hear about your bad day, GV - probably explains the tad vitriolic comment on mine......

  2. About so-called celebrities giving us their views on politics? That goes for any day of the week, MrW. Their opinions count for nothing and I'd rather not have them plastered all over the msm :-) I really must do something about this pc though - it's forever shutting down without warning so it looks quite serious.

  3. rethe cardboard box prosecution (Ranting Penguin)
    It's already too late.
    Two years ago I had some difficulty persuading local shops (whose staff knew me well)to give me disused cardboard boxes when moving house for exactly this reason.

    Perhaps the Councillor was worried in case that stupid law fell into disuse and a piece of his petty power withered away.

    Has this set a Precedent?

  4. I'm amazed. When I moved in 2004/5, everything was packed into sturdy boxes from the corner shop - and they were only too glad to get rid of them then. I couldn't take them fast enough and he even offered to bring them to me. Times, and little regulations, change.
