    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 7:20 AM
    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.
    -I've pulled a muscle in my leg and have to drag it behind me, quasimodo style
    -OH ate all the bread so I can't have toast for breakfast

    Why is it that the job you think will be easiest turns out to be the most difficult?

    I had 1 tile behind the taps that was cracked. That'll be easy enough thought I. Would it come out? Would it heck as like. I ended up breaking the next tile as well

    Fortunately I'd had the foresight to leave a spare tile out in case of disasters such as this. Excellent thinks I, just put the new tiles in.


    But.....the ruddy tiles need cutting (I hadn't realised they weren't full size, been a few years since I tiled that bathroom) and in the interests of trying to keep as much clutter out the way as possible I put all the tiling gear back in the shed. And it's buried under 5 tons of other rubbish

    See you in about 5 years I would think

    Not really an ethical dilemma but I'm getting scolded. I'm off work with a stinking cold. The met reports have suggested that by the time I can expect to be fully operational again, it will not be in weather conditions where popping to the shops is an attractive idea (if it ever was) so I went to costco & the supermarket & loaded up on everything I regard as needful &/or on serious promotion.
    While sick. Which I will be taking as leave but my critic is stepping past that little fact.
    Definitely time to make a brew.

    Donald Trump, he reminds me of an Internet super troll who are usually people who don’t fit in with sociopathic tendencies who just want to create chaos and spoil it for everyone else, but this guy is trolling the World he seems desperate to cause a conflict somewhere in the World, all his policies seemed designed to destroy, discriminate and destabilise everything.

    I got home late last night, turned on the TV and caught that ghastly programme about naked dating or something.

    Someone has to firstly choose people based on their genitals, then their torso, and finally their face. And each bit is described and discussed in great detail.






    The only good thing about the prog is that if people are worried about a part of their own body, it shows them that everyone's bits look different and not many are actually all that wonderful.

    I have caught a bit of the program and it is just awful, it is not even titillating in any way, to see a woman picking a partner based purely on his genitals before even seeing his face really is quite sad, likewise the bloke peering at Six woman’s bits to pick a partner is just as bad.

    Trying to set up prelit Xmas tree. It has 3 parts which have to plug into 3 slots on a little box. We can't find the bit to plug the middle section into the box. The little box is connected to the middle part which made me think it doesn't need to plug into the box. Problem is there's 3 slots in the box so it must.

    It's scraping the bottom of the barrel even for channel 4, who pride themselves on being a bit "controversial". I'm a bit concerned that having this exhibitionism on tv normalises this kind of mindset.
