Sadly, Leeds United were in Division 2 back in 1989 and they’ve returned there 26 years later.
This evening we noticed a lady wandering down the street, knocking on all the doors of the houses. As regular readers will remember, I recently had an encounter with some Jehovah Witnesses, trying to get into my property, so I am vary of opening the door to cold callers. The nuisance of a woman eventually came to our front door. Naturally I didn’t answer when she rang the bell. Before leaving to pester somebody else, she chucked a leaflet though the letterbox. At this point I was disappointed I didn’t answer the door to her. The leaflet was from the Conservative Party. It had been a long week at work and I quite fancied a political debate. If she ever does come back, I’ll tell her that there are two things we don’t do in our household. One is vote for the Tories. The second is use the word “cunt”. However, there is one exception. The use of the word “cunt” is permitted when describing David Cameron. That’ll be one guaranteed way never to see Tory Girl again.
Claire has now gone out with friends, so I am left on my own. I am spending the evening in watching Aladdin, in memory of Robin Williams. It has been years since I’ve watched it and I forgot how good it is. Williams’ performance as The Genie is superb. As Claire is going out for a meal, I had to eat something nice too and decided upon pizza. For the last few months, we’ve been using Papa John’s, as it’s the best pizza delivery I have found. I discovered this evening, however, that while PJ’s is great for special offers if ordering for two or more people, ordering alone is a bit rubbish. Therefore, it was back to Dominos. I felt like I was cheating. I’m sorry, Papa. If it makes you feel better, I didn’t like Dominos as much. Please try to do some better offers for those saddos dining alone.
When I was a very little boy, I liked Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles. For those of you who don’t remember it, or are too young, TMHT was a cartoon about four turtles who fought crime and ate pizza. All good friendly and family fun.
Today I watched this trailer for an upcoming movie – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. These turtles are terrifying. They probably commit crime and eat babies. Had I seen these as a child, I wouldn’t sleep for a month. I’ll probably have to leave the bedside light on tonight.
Mike Bassett’s back. Absolutely fantastic news.
If the writers become stuck for inspiration, there are plenty Neil Warnock interviews from his time at Leeds which are equally as comical as anything Ricky Tomlinson ever came out with.
Some sad news. Harold Ramis of Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day fame has died.
That means there will never be a Ghostbusters III. The dream is over.
On this website, you’ll find me blogging (almost) daily about everyday life, living in Bath, working with computers, and the occasional bit of football stuff thrown in.
If you're expecting The Man Booker Prize, you've come to the wrong place. If you want to read a collection of sometimes eccentric, often disturbing and rarely amusing ramblings, gorge your eyes on this.
