What kind of girl are you?
A GAME-BOY. Youre like a tomboy without the love of
sports. Reality sucks, but as long as you have
your electronics you feel you can cope. Time
goes unnoticed when youre locked in your room
hooked up to your Nintendo, rocking to your
favourite collection of guitar-driven
Your virtues: Intelligence, sense-of-humour,
Your flaws: Inability to cope with real life,
action-freak spirit, reclusive nature.
What kind of girl are you?

Westwood - what a prick!
I am bemused by the posters I see spotted around London on the tube for a new rap compilation rap album entitled "Westwood somethingorother" which is like calling it "Have I got rap for you!" only so it appeals to rapper listener people.
It depicts Tim Westwood as a towering colossus, with his strong menacing face shrouded in shadows, his feet bravely planted and his shoulders sturdy against your gaze....it is a triumph of photographic manipulation, for the real Tim Westwood looks more like Nobby's younger brother. I have seen him on tv and he has a little ratty face with errant wisps of bumfluff trying to hide behind the nose. He slouches in a bad shell suit (probably not any more - he'll be in designer chav wear now he's got the money) and just needs a battered rollup cigarette in one corner of his mouth to complete the picture.
I understand that DJ Rodent has a certain standing in the rap community, he gets where other dj's do not [they can squeeze through holes as small as a pencil you know] and talks about things other djs do not [what boots taste like perhaps?] In fact he was even shot a few years back, probably by some farmer who thought he was after the grain, but equally possibly by someone who just wanted him to shut the fuck up and stop pretending to be cool.
I am simply bemused by the pretence. I am sure that his show is bangin'...
In other news we are doing much better in the Olympics. A couple more medals in the gold department and we will be beating Italy. In the race for the most medals I am afraid i am backing China though.

one so far. Not much but it is a start, and brings us into the competition..climbing into a higher league - complaining every step of the way...
In other news I walk past a MacDonalds on my way home from work, I have to walk down a road that passes the back of the outlet - not the front, where the golden arches beckon enticingly to the mugs walking through them, but round back, where a giant outlet pumps out warm air that makes me feel greasy where it touches me, the stink of whatever the fumes are revolts me, it is like rotting meat with rancid grease -but warm...I shudder just writing about it. I keep getting the urge to go into the outlet and drag people who are halfway through their Big Macs outside and make them smell the fumes, then challenge them to go back inside and finish their "100% beef patty" without puking all over their Nikes.
ugh! and I say that with all foreknwoledge of the consequences...

I am glad to say that weare showing our mettle and finally stepping up to the challenge that Serbia has laid down before us. We have a bronze medal as well as our silver...
possibly in the morris dancing, who can say - I believe the contestants asked for that particular event not to be televised so as to cut the risk of any viewers "trying this at home."
Perhaps I can see why I don't like the olympics very much, even why I don't like many sports very much - because I am inordinately proud of my country. I am an Englishman and I consider myself to be such regardless of any connotations of that word. I am not British, nor from the United Kingdom, and I will be dead before I will be "European"
I am English and proud of it, however foolish that may seem. But I am not proud of the concrete facts that represent our country. The rising unemployment, the ridiculous goverment and their ridiculous opposition, the yobs and chavs that stream through our streets and leave our shores representing "Ingerland" with their St. George's flags and very short hair. The fact that we excel at losing constantly at almost every sport, having invented many of them.
I am proud of an ideal, proud of a set of values and proud of our heritage. Not the heritage of wading through the blood of the natives of so many shores, nor that of colonising so many places and forcing our values and our social system on so much of the worlds surface. I am proud to be English.
And that is why I don't like these sporting events that provide a measure of how good a country is. in my heart I love England, its green and pleasant hills, its gentlemen and its English roses, and I don't want to look at a sporting event and see that England has excelled at nothing, to see England lose again to those from foreign shores. I don't think we should compete - because the irony is that by taking part you accept the fact that it is the winning that matters.
We are not winners - we are veteran "take part"ers and we do a jolly good job of taking part.
People say "Nobody likes a quitter" - generally they are American.
I want to coin a new phrase, "Nobody likes a winner." Which is truer and holds more hope for this sweet country of mine.

This goes out dedicated to my brother, and courtesy of my father.
I find myself in agreement with the author of this site on many points, not least Chris Moyles and Christina Aguilera. The interviews with the chavs are truly funny.
Olympic update - one silver...soon we will have an unassailable lead in the having one silver category...

since my last post Great Britain has picked up the game and started to show what we are really made of...we now have...
Japan, a country of appreciably smaller size and resources has 5 gold medals, one silver and one bronze.
Need I say more?
We need to downsize - lets get rid of ireland, chop off Wales and colonize Scotland...then we need to start doing interesting things with raw fish and import some senes of honour into our culture.

The Olympics !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am interested to note that so far in this gloriuos event of passion and pride Great Britain has shown its true colours with our sportsmen so far ensuring we are ranked equal with such mighty empire builders as Serbia and Georgia...
I'm disappointed guys - I thought we were good at some stuff...well, i knew we wouldn't win tennis, or football, or swimming, or weightlifting, but I thought that maybe we might be able to sneak a cheeky gold or two in the events that often go unnoticed until the winning country starts lauding it as the most telling event in the games.
Badminton for example, or cycling, basket weaving or morris dancing - these are the things at which we excel...come on guys - Gold in the Morris dancing!

A General Whinge
I am currently doing the job the brunette usually does - doing production accounts for a film, or at least that is what I am nominally doing - what I have actually done for the past two weeks is curiously similar yet curiously opposed to what I used to do working in Sales. In that job I used to fuck around on the internet and occasionally ring someone and ask for some money - I would invariably be told no. In this job I am fucking about on the internet and occasionally someone will ring and ask me for money - I invariably say no. These are not people who are trying to sell me stuff though - these are people who have done the work but still haven't been paid. I was alright with this - I don't have a problem with telling people bad news.
There's a problem though. I am one of the people who hasn't been paid, isn't being paid, and wants to be paid NOW. And because I am in the accounts department I KNOW there is enough money to pay me, because unlike all these people phoning up, who are by and large suppliers I hasten to add, I don't get paid a huge amount, but the little amount that I do get paid mean more to me than the big amounts they get paid. It mounts up too - I am owed over £900 by them now and my account is empty - which means I can't have my new leatherman that I have bought. It is a thing of beauty and I can justify having it as well [bonus] Only problem is we need a signature from someone who won't sign anything...
The second thing on my nerves at the moment is the sodding director I am working with at the moment, now I have worked with directors who don't get things done before [mentioning no... Sianodel] and I have worked with directors who ask more of me than I have time to give [Sianodel raise a hand please] and I have worked with directors who expect the earth from £25 and some cloth [guess who?] but these directors are charismatic and talented, as well as being likeable and willing most of the time, and in Sianodel's case, a good friend. The new director is not charismatic nor likeable, in fact for some reason I can't put my finger on she just rubs me up the wrong way, she doesn't seem very talented, or even very driven, and coupled to that she is stubborn and obtuse as well as being stupid by various definitions of the word - and she owes me £130.
Me not happy - me want to rip puny directors head off and take my money from her bloodless corpse.
I am trying really hard to figure out what it is about her I don't like and all I can get is the feeling that I can't talk to her straight. I keep getting this image of grabbing her by her shoulders and forcing her to look at me while I talk to her. Maybe she never looks me in the eye.
Damn her - damn them all...

Kolpophobia = fear of footballers
My brother sent me this link http://www.preparingforemergencies.co.uk/ for which I am thankful. It is important that we know what to do in cases of emergencies - and this booklet is very helpful in these cases which are becoming more and more likely - only the other day a foreigner spoke to me on the tube! Probably trying to get information as to where would be the best place to place a chemical bomb i know, but don't worry, I sent him up the northern line so nothing too important should get contaminated. I mean, ten years ago we didn't need to be xenophobic to survive - we didn't have johnny foreigner in our country eating our curry and drinking our wine - we were safe, insulated from the rest of the world by some water, but now the politicians have joined us up to the frogs and now all the dogs in this country have rabies apparently. We need to be xenophobic to get along these days - you can't tell who is foreign, the americans are the worst - some of the thinner ones actually look like us, and they pretend to speak our language as well!? In fact I am thinking of beginning a campaign of androgynopedophobia because you just can't tell who is foreign these days, i mean some of them were even born in England - god knows how. I met a foreign chappy the other day whose family has lived in England for six generations - HOW IS ONE TO TELL. [I also suffer from butyrachnophobia]
Automatonophobia - fear of commuting/commuters...
THEY ARE ALL TRYING TO BOMB US!!!!
I'll tell you what though, Bush isn't paranoid - everyone hates him.
I was commuting in this morning carrying a sword - it is always amusing. I find it quite telling that provided you carry it by the wrong ende - no matter who blatantly it is sword shaped, hard, metallic etc, people don't think of it as a sword. Hint to anyone who wants to do some damage with a replica sword - probably better off bludgeoning people with the hilt, plus they will take longer to realise that you are a sword wielding maniac.
At last it rains - I blame the foreigners.
Anyway where do you draw the line between an Englishman and a foreigner, or an Englishman and a footballer for that matter - who is to point at a mark on the continuum and say "anyone less couth than that is not an Englishman", or "anyone browner than that is a foreigner." I mean - people don't do themselves any favours by jumping out in the sun at the earliest opportunity and browning themselves all over - and I am well aware that a true BNP Brit will never deign to tan - they go red and burn, and still baste themselves with sun tan oil and keep cooking their red neck bodies - but what about all these people who cannot claim such aryan stupidity and actually let themselves go brown - at what point do they become foreign? One cannot draw lines defined by what language they speak - because most Chinese people speak better English than most 16 yr olds found wandering in Manchester or Brixton late on a Saturday night
bored now - gonna go...

In other news - I saw Ian Holme today wandering down Goodge Street looking like he had just parted with his ring of power [looking pretty wrecked in other words]
He had a paper under one arm, a scruffy blue t-shirt and shorts on - Good Lad!
Well, there is nothing like seeing an icon to brighten up a Monday.
i was surprised by how hobbit sized he actually is, those fake perspective shots of Gandalf looming over him can't have taken too much change - he is quite wee...but he looked very grumpy - so you wouldn't push him - even if he is wee.

What's your political compass?
Check your political compass out. http://www.digitalronin.f2s.com/politicalcompass/index.html
This is mine:
Political Compass - Economic Left/Right: -2.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.69
What amuses me is I am only a point or two away from Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama if you look at the chart of famous people.
Post your scores in the comments below please - Sianodel: you as well.
