I love movies; I mean really, really love movies. I don’t claim to have the best taste in films but I do have a very diverse appetite. I see at least one a week at the cinema and own many hundreds of DVDs that range from the odd horror and art house title to rom . . . → Read More: Oh no it has “Edward” in it!

The boy and I were watching 60 minutes on the 20th of March– one of the stories focused on selective reduction (SR) and 3 womens’ experiences with this issue.

Skimming the news boards, as I am somewhat wont to do, I can across this article describing an Iowa man arrested after drunk driving, as he was taking his pet zebra and parrot out to a bar.
My initial reaction was – this has got to be a joke. Seriously, a man walks in to . . . → Read More: FOF – Is this some kind of joke?
I’ve commented about my marketer’s-nightmare-copper-wire-was-invented-by-me-fighting-with-a-retailer-over-a-penny style of shopping before. I have an intense dislike for any shopping trip (at least to an individual shop) that lasts longer than it takes to boil an egg.

I was checking out the internet for ideas for today’s post and I saw sites that made me want to scrub my eyeballs afterwards, numerous cats with improbable musical ability, a huge amount of Atheist/Theist debating and an article that had me saying “Finally science is investigating the things that matter!” but still no joy, . . . → Read More: Inspiration
Let’s be honest here, my tolerance level can be rather poor.
I can’t seem to put up with idiotic people, slow walkers, constant sniffers, screaming and undisciplined children, and (no big surprise for those who have been subjected to my online rants in the past) awful, mainstream music is my absolute kryptonite.
