Brrrrrr!!! It’s bloody cold outside, it’s only a 10 minute walk from my work back to where I live but I got freezing! There’s a horrible wind out there, I hate this weather, if it’s going to be cold I’d like there to be some visible evidence of it, like 4 feet of snow across the city.


Had I been outside any longer, I fear this may have been the outcome

Anyway, moving on from the weather onto another depressing topic (well for me) – football, that game where I always watch my favourite teams lose and get humiliated week in week out.

Unsurprisingly Man Utd did beat Exeter City last night, although it was only 2-0. It was nice to see that Exeter doing themselves proud – well done!

Now onto the ever ongoing saga of Leeds United, they have yet again been linked with another takeover, set to eradicate their massive debts. This time Ken Bates has been linked with buying the club. Remember Ken Bates? He was the man who denied all connections to Leeds only the other week.

Lots of Leeds fans are against Bates buying the club, I personally think “beggars can’t be choosers”. If Bates didn’t buy Leeds, administration would be almost a certainty. Administration would mean a 10 point deduction, player sales and a strong possibility of the whole club being wound up! I think a Bates takeover would be good news. What’s the worst he can do? Put us into administration?

That’s enough of the football talk, I was asked by a friend to go and see The Aviator yesterday. It was late, I was tired and I didn’t fancy going to see a Leonardo DiCaprio film that night, especially one which is 3 hours long! The last time I saw DiCaprio he had frozen to death on some plank of wood and then chucked into The Atlantic Ocean by Kate Winslet.


What is it with Di Caprio and 3 hour long movies?

I’ll probably go to see it before too long anyway, especially as I’m hoping to see Meet the Fockers tomorrow so I’ll owe my friend a film of his choice. The Aviator has had some good reviews so I’ll probably enjoy it anyway.

Last but by no means least I got a very funny e-mail today. It’s a collection of Peter Kay observations and life questions. They’re very funny! If they seem familiar, back in July 2004, I posted another set of his musings.

1. Why does your gynaecologist leave the room when you get undressed?

2. If a person owns a piece of land do they own it all the way down to the core of the earth?

3. Why can’t women put on mascara with their mouth closed?

4. Is it possible to brush your teeth without wiggling your arse?

5. Why is it called Alcoholics Anonymous when the first thing you do is stand up and say, ‘My name is Bob, and I am an alcoholic’?

6. Why are they called stairs inside but steps outside?

7. Why is there a light in the fridge and not in the freezer?

8. Why does mineral water that ‘has trickled through mountains for centuries’ have a ‘use by’ date?

9. Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp no one would eat?

10. Is French kissing in France just called kissing?

11. Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, ‘I think I’ll squeeze these dangly things here and drink whatever comes out’?

12. What do people in China call their good plates?

13. Why do people point to their wrist when asking for the time, but don’t point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

14. What do you call male ballerinas?

15. Why is a person that handles your money called a ‘Broker’?

16. If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?

17. If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, then what is baby oil made from?

18. Why is it that when someone tells you that there are over a billion stars in the universe, you believe them, but if they tell you there is wet paint somewhere, you have to touch it to make sure?

19. Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog’s face, he gets mad at you but when you take him on a car ride, he sticks his head out of the window.


No.11 really does make you wonder…

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
