Happy New Year
The Brunette, in her infinite wisdom, has been telling me not to buy a digital camera for quite a while, and it turns out that aside from the fact that I don't have enough money to really justify buying the camera I desire, she had a better reason - she had bought me one for Christmas...

So I am posting pictures from my new digital camera. I haven't been very far afield with it as yet, so no pictures of India or anything...

My gramophone, of which I am proud. I will make the pictures smaller when I figure out how to really post pictures. I might even go Greg and find out how to embed them in text properly...

It is Christmas after all, and I have an 'after' photo for later... heh

One of the statues from Twickers...

And this is what I am drinking tonight. Whiskey sour with brown sugar. Half whiskey, half lemon juice and sugar to taste [lots]

Nasty Brown colour, but juice looseningly yummy taste.

In the meantime. Have a good New Year's Eve, and enjoy the beginning of '06

Peace be wiv you, innit?
yeah, like, peace, man...

Christmas is a time to remember how much you like being on your own, and how it might not be a good idea to bring little people into this world, that's why the wise men were there, they were commiserating...

Christmas came round again, and the father had the son crucified, innit. Like, that's the whole thing about family christmases... rows, and the odd crucifixification...

oh, and turkeys, cos that's how we got the indians to give us their land. Now they have been forced into reservations on the corners of built up land...

and parsnips, and sprouts, we tried the indians with them, but they weren't having any of them...

Right - Pre Christmas Post
Ok, here we go:

The Movie Of Your Life Is Film Noir

So what if you're a little nihilistic at times?
Life with meaning is highly over-rated.

Your best movie matches: Sin City, L. A. Confidential, Blade Runner

You Have a Choleric Temperament

You are a person of great enthusiasm - easily excited by many things.
Unsatisfied by the ordinary, you are reaching for an epic, extraordinary life.
You want the best. The best life. The best love. The best reputation.

You posses a sharp and keen intellect. Your mind is your primary weapon.
Strong willed, nothing can keep you down. Your energy can break down any wall.
You're an instantly passionate person - and this passion gives you an intoxicating power over others.

At your worst, you are a narcissist. Full of yourself and even proud of your faults.
Stubborn and opinionated, you know what you think is right. End of discussion.
A bit of a misanthrope, you often see others as weak, ignorant, and inferior.

Barbara Stanwyck
You scored 38% grit, 28% wit, 42% flair, and 7% class!
You're a tough dame, a bit of a spitfire, and you can even be a little dangerous, but you do it with such flair that almost all is forgiven (and even when it's not, you're still the most interesting woman in the room). You can be witty and charming, all right, but you have a tough streak that keeps you focused and sometimes deadly. You've had quite a climb to get where you are, but you're a hard worker and you mostly deserve all you get...and then some. You might end up destroying everything around you, but you must've got style. Your leading men include Henry Fonda, Fred MacMurray, and when you forget yourself, Gary Cooper.

John Wayne
You scored 28% Tough, 19% Roguish, 23% Friendly, and 28% Charming!
You, my friend, are a man's man, the original true grit, one tough talking, swaggering son of a bitch. You're not a bad guy, on the contrary, you're the ultimate good guy, but you're one tough character, rough and tumble, ready for anything. You call the shots and go your own way, and if some screwy dame is willing to accept your terms, that's just fine by you. Otherwise, you'll just hit the open trail and stay true to yourself. You stand up for what you believe and can handle any situation, usually by rushing into the thick of the action. You're not polished and you're not overly warm, but you're a straight shooter and a real stand up guy. Co-stars include Lauren Bacall and Maureen O'Hara, tough broads who can take care of themselves.

You Are 14 Years Old

Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

You Are Likely an Only Child

At your darkest moments, you feel frustrated.
At work and school, you do best when you're organizing.
When you love someone, you tend to worry about them.

In friendship, you are emotional and sympathetic.
Your ideal careers are: radio announcer, finance, teaching, ministry, and management.
You will leave your mark on the world with organizational leadership, maybe as the author of self-help books.

Everything Pizza

Diverse and adaptable
You enjoy the full buffet of life
It's hard to you play favorites with friends... or flavors
There's very little that you dislike!

Thanks to Southern Bird for most of those, and me being bored enough to pick more to do for the rest of them.

Film Noir - cool, I'm happy with that...#

Choleric - It isn't my fault that I'm right all the time, I was born that way, and others are weak, ignorant and inferior.

Barbara Stanwyck - say who? Obviously I'm not a classy girl... [you have to highlight the text, sorry]

John Wayne - I have an admission to make. I got John Wayne the first time I did this, and I went back and changed things to try and make me someone else, I don't want to be John Wayne. The man was a misogynist ape-throwback who couldn't act. However, I am indeed a man's man, and I mean that with no homosexual undertones.

I'm 14 - I attribute this to the fact that I answered the question about parties with "tons of ice cream and cake" but that just makes me greedy, not 14...

Only - if only.... heh. In my darkest moments I feel frustrated? Darkest? What part of darkest don't they understand? In your darkest moment you still like oranges.

You will leave your mark on the world with organizational leadership, maybe as the author of self-help books.

When. Hell. Freezes. Over.

and possibly not even then.

Right. Proper posting. I've been lazy recently. I have not been writing Aura as much as i should be doing, and I am going home for Christmas soon. Maman came up for a day or so yesterday, and we saw cuz Pol and Mrs Henderson Presents.

Mrs Henderson Presents was very good. Will Young was strikingly convincing playing against type as a young gay man who can sing and dance, Bob hoskins was slightly alarming when naked, and Ms Dench, or Dame Dench as I probably should call her was very good. Also interesting was the presence of a girl who had written directed and acted in a play at Mooning Beagle Splodge as one of the Windmill girls. Now I see why she didn't talk about the part much. not that she was bad, just that she was quite naked quite a lot.

Needless to say the Brunette wasn't impressed.

Just finished the latest installment of Y: The Last Man. Amazon were being shit, so I cancelled my order and bought it from They Walk Among Us in Richmond [I recommend a visit]

"Girl on Girl" is again very good, why must I be made to wait to long between increments though? And why can we not have more? £8.50 for 45 minutes satisfaction is more than i usually pay, but i don't know whether it is good value. For girl on girl it probably is....


In a Past Life...

You Were: A Famous Undertaker.

Where You Lived: Spain.

How You Died: Decapitation.


Your Irish Name Is...

Fachnan Nolan

I think not...

You Are Chubby Hubby Ice Cream

So there's more of you to love... a whole lot more!


So I did it with my real name...

You Are Chunky Monkey Ice Cream

Truthfully, you're too spazzy to be chunky - you cheeky monkey!

It's more accurate than the BMI calculator, although it gets its species mixed up...

I go home for Christmas next week. The Bro has exams in Jan, which means that the "Get up at 10am every day and revise!" meme has struck the household again - always the best way to make Christmas special, I find. That and sprouts, obviously.

I had an epiphany today. Imagine Italian antipasti [Mum, take careful note here, as I may need your expertise in order to make this particular dream become reality] but with a subtle difference. Go with the flavour of the olive oil and the vinegar, just let it drip over your tongue and massage your tastebuds. Imagine the texture, and the hint of herbs, garlic and a smidgelet of sun-dried tomato. Bite down into the succulence, imagine artichoke hearts to a certain extent. Then allow yourself to realise that what you just ate was a sprout.

I think it could sell. Well, no. I am realistic enough to realise that it won't sell, nobody is going to buy sprouts unless it is Christmas and they are planning on a boilathon, but imagine the flavour. it would work, it really would, the texture could be perfect, and the flavour would be dead good.

I'm going to call them, "Antisprouti"

I think the name might appeal. I thought about "Sproutipasti", but I think "Antisprouti" has a better ring to it, and pre-empts people like the Brunette, who could accurately be described as Antisprouti, but in a slightly differing context.

Watch this space. Next years most wanted gift, a small jar of high quality "Antisprouti" happened here first.

I'm quite serious. Well, not about the gift bit, but about thinking they would taste nice.

Works do tomorrow. Waiting on a Christmas bonus...

Probably delivered by one of these...

meanwhile, back at the ranch.

**waves to the left**

**waves to the right**

It's ok, I'm not dead.

You may be forgiven for suspecting that the aliens had me again and that one of them was filling in time here by posting asinine stories and foolish blog tests. Rest assured, it was me being asinine and foolish...

I has bin bizy.

Productions are over now, and the holidays most Christians celebrate as being the best time of the year to spend money on shit things are upon us. [It all started with the three wise men, Gold, frankincense and myrrh! What a pile of crap to spend their hard earned shekels on. Probably the local garage had a special offer on and they were wrapped in red and gold, the wise men went "ooh, Christmas colours, those'll do." and bought them along with twenty cigarettes, a thing to clean the windows of their camel and some skittles.] (confectionary skittles, not bowling skittles)

The L*st *f th* D* M*ll*ns was the show I was on. Terrible play, I can quite see why it hasn't been done since 1920. Anyroad. The acting was good, and the direction also.

I'm going to play fives again this evening, after meeting up with one of the Brunette's workmates for a game of chess down the pub. We were meant to be playing 'Go' but he wimped out of that.

I am still halfway through Aura. I have lost impetus, and I need to boost it again over Christmas, which is fairly unlikely to happen really, but I want to finish it by next year so that I can get Legionnaire sent out to some publishing people.

I am quite chuffed with Aftermath. Night Warrior have more of my scripts, and I hope they are done as well. I might even get around to finishing the one I owe them as well.

I have plans for tne New Year. I want to finish the NW story I owe, and also maybe try my hand at writing a play. It will be silly, but it might work.

I might finish some of the short stories I still owe people as well. I owe Greg one. I haven't forgotten. About Mr Churchill...

Aah, you see. I have a plan, just not enough time, and patently not enough motivation.

Right. I'm off to the charity shops to see if any of them have "The Light Fantastic"

Cheery Pip Peeps.

Night Warrior Strikes Back with...

which is my first NW script to be drawn... w00t... I did get somethign published this year... only web published, but published... and I like it. I hope you all like it... and you all must read it, and preferably then go to the forums and say how insightful and wonderfully written it was...


I might actually get of my behind and do the long issue i owe them once I have finished Aura.

Please do go and read, and recommend to all your friends...

haha... I know this never works... I'll probably decrease their hit count...

I own a t-shirt like that sheep is wearing...
After Blair's threat to jail any editor who reports the Bomb Al-Jazeera memo, we thought there would be an outcry. Who would stand up for press freedom, or at least the freedom not to be bombed to buggery?

One man has come out fighting. Boris Johnson:

The Attorney General's ban is ridiculous, untenable, and redolent of guilt. I do not like people to break the Official Secrets Act, and, as it happens, I would not object to the continued prosecution of those who are alleged to have broken it. But we now have allegations of such severity, against the US President and his motives, that we need to clear them up.

If someone passes me the document within the next few days I will be very happy to publish it in The Spectator, and risk a jail sentence. The public need to judge for themselves. Sunlight is the best disinfectant. If we suppress the truth, we forget what we are fighting for, and in an important respect we become as sick and as bad as our enemies.

Go for it Boris. I'll publish on here if I get the chance. Bombing the media? Fucking ^*%$(*^(&^*^&%)(*^'s frankly. Bang out of order, or Boom out of order I suppose.

Although I originally found the link on Cheezy's blog...


Which flock do you follow?
