    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

    The shop will be very dead. Everyone aged 52 and under have never experienced England in the WC final. You can extend that for people aged 52-57 that were too young to remember it.

    After 2 weeks of peace where I assume neighbour was on holiday its back to this large crowd of people stomping, I don't mind people having guests but the problem I talked about in past was she has a lot of noise for the amount of people that are meant to live there.

    When I typed pom-pom earlier, auto moron insisted on capitalising the second pom. Now it doesn't.

    Living on Earth = Any Weather + Lots of Idiots
    Which is a fact even if the maths don't work.
    (Or at least if I remember a bit of algebra that is. )

    Also,

    Living on earth - lots of idiots = - any weather

    So, to get rid of weather means getting rid of lots of idiots.
    And vice versa.

    But without weather, would there be be any living on earth?

  • RT @justindeaville: @MartinSLewis I looked it up when we last went. It's ball speed. And it's about O.3 seconds to cross the court. @Martin?

  • Amazing how empty the #Wimbledon court is for the mixed doubles even though there's a Brit playing. The bars outside are rammed though

  • RT @BimpeIN: @MartinSLewis According to Quora its "the speed of the ball as getting out of the racket. As soon as the ball starts to fly it?
