    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 6:20 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

    Burnt my dinner again.
    Why do potatoes boil twice as fast when you're not in the room willing them along.
    My dinner is now in Gitdog.

    Or... what I used to do was knock up a banana loaf whilst waiting. Or any cake really. I like cake & it kills the time.
    Smile... It'll confuse em.

    I do my boiled eggs the same way everyday and somehow they come out different each time, sometimes right, sometimes hard boiled and sometimes under done.

    Now if I could just find an easy way of coordinating scrambling eggs with cooking toast I would be laughing!

    Change the scrambled eggs to eggy bread. Probably a bit less healthy but much tastier.
    And perfectly coordinated.

    Nuke the eggs in the microwave while the bread is in the toaster (start that first), stir the eggs after 40 seconds and then put back in for 20 seconds and again after another stir if a firmer texture is required.

    Any dog and his Dad knows that

    Where was his team?

    They got told to take it easy on Friday so that they would be rested for the hard day on Saturday but they all faded too early and were of no help to their team leader

    Took my PS3 controller apart months ago as it was sitting in a drawer for years and manky, at the time I couldn't clip the buttons back on top (well known issue) and got frustrated and decided to try again today, except the clip that connects the button is missing! This pad is in excellent condition despite it being a earlier model (in part as I hardly ever used it) and replacement clips would cost a few quid but I can get a 3rd party controller delivered new for £9!

    I've just ticked off another line on the 'signs you're getting old' list.

    My "smart" phone which demands to update every day, and then takes ages doing it. [so everything else is so slow]. If it was that smart why doesn't it know everything already.

    So sad that people can be offended by the difference between Hot and Hot

    Idiots who ignore me when I tell them if they encourage Gitdog to approach them in a certain way they will end up with a broken nose.
    "It's alright, I'm used to dogs."
    No you're not, because if you were you'd be listening to the sodding owner.

    Tempted though I am to let them get on with it, then tell them it serves them right as they get a good solid headbutt, it's poor Gitdog who'd end up getting the blame.

    Being both exciteable and a bull terrier who believes himself to be of chihuahua-like proportions, head butting is pretty much his accidental default setting. Say hello, and instantaneously throw large and solid head upwards, especially when someone is bending over him.

    Rolling round on the grass, waving your arms at him and calling him in a silly high pitched voice is really only going to go one way with his combination of exuberance, over-friendliness and sheer muscle power. And their stupidity. Steamrollered with additional black eye for luck.

    The Hypocrisy of some politicians...

    When Gordon Brown became PM in 2007 the buffoon Boris Johnson said

    “It’s the arrogance. It’s the contempt. That’s what gets me. It’s Gordon Brown’s apparent belief that he can just trample on the democratic will of the British people. It’s at moments like this that I think the political world has gone mad, and I am alone in detecting the gigantic fraud.

    “They voted for Anthony Charles Lynton Blair to serve as their leader. They were at no stage invited to vote on whether Gordon Brown should be PM… They voted for Tony, and yet they now get Gordon, and a transition about as democratically proper as the transition from Claudius to Nero. It is a scandal. Why are we all conniving in this stitch-up? This is nothing less than a palace coup… with North Korean servility, the Labour Party has handed power over to the brooding Scottish power-maniac.”
