Due to a lack of time and money, I fear the planned flag burning and Bush immolation will probably not happen tomorrow. I’ve been told to save it for Labo(u)r Day, the next big American holiday for fireworks and senseless patriotism.
The Tour de France is a proper sporting event, not like this poncey punting a ball around lark where they’re scared of a few drops of honest rain. With such a huge and taxing event it’s not surprising the lengths some riders will go to.
Lance Armstrong is the current King of Le Tour, and this year he’s going for his fifth win. Even revelations that he’s a close friend of Monkey Boy Bush haven’t damaged my respect for him.
The award for accidental best URL in the history of the whole web goes to www.powergenitalia.com. Thinking it would be cool to get myself some Power Gentialia I went there but was disappointed to find that they are in fact Powergen Italia and make battery chargers for fork lifts.
Sorry if you were surprised that Ian failed his driving test (given that he’s been driving bogle for years). I forgot to sign Ian out and myself in.
So congratulations to Ian for passing his driving test (years ago) and any commiserating drinks should be directed at me instead.
Well, I failed. Which is a bit crap but to be honest it was deserved. Being with an instructor made me nervous and everything went slightly downhill – mirrors, observation, gears etc. Oh and a car jumped out at me! If I driven like I did in my lesson this week, I’d have passed, unfortunately I drove like I did about a month ago so I didn’t.
I’m feeling philospohical and I’m going to resit it after some more lessons. I think it’s just a matter of experience. I’m not too upset – I’m pretty sure I’ll pass next time with a bit more practice. However, if you want to buy me drinks in sympathy (instead of celebration), i’ll happily accept ;).
Typically, on a day I’m expecting important calls, I left my mobile at home this morning.
It’s like the woman from the bank was psychic yesterday when she said ‘And if we can’t get through to you we’ll leave a message.’
Well in the USA, people have finally cottoned on to the intrusive and police budget contributing use of speed cameras. Want the solution? It comes in a spray. I don’t know whether it is illegal here, but it doesn’t prevent the license plate from being read on the road and it reflects all light from a flash camera. Watch the Fox news tests on the website – it’s impressive stuff.
Pretty cool. If I was still driving all over the country, it would be in the glove compartment at all times.
