Bitch


Still not quite as bad as them "barbed wire" bands, made popular by Pamela Anderson and sported by both male and females in the 1990s, usually their only tattoo, which they thought made them "radical".

Well that's how I've always pronounced it, but then I say 'caramel' with a silent 'E', so what would I know?

I'm confused and worried now. Is police actually said with a silent "o"? Have I been wrong all these years? Are those annoying numpties on the Beeb actually right?

Nope, it appears the Beeb's wrong, and I'm right - as usual.

I do mine online with the Chemist I will pick up from. 2 days later it's ready for me to collect and I don't see a doctor at all (though I do have a check up every 6 months)


This was a bit of an emergency in my case -

When I registered at this new practice I had to include my email address then a few days later I filled in a form so that I'd be able to order prescriptions online - a few days later I received a letter from the practice saying this wasn't possible without an email address - Hmmm , I included it in my application to join your practice .

Phoned up 999 yesterday asking for the Police please .

You want two police ?

No , just one police please .

So , you want two police ?

Three would be even better , please .

Why do you end every sentence with ' Police ' ?

Coz Hugh has the monopoly on Pardon ?

Getting up at 4.45am to see the bloody Super Wolf Blood Moon only for it to be hidden by clouds .

Cheered up when I saw the photo that someone had sent in to the BBC this morning though , a circular piece of pepperoni or some such cured sausage . :)

That thing that they do on Match of the Day...

When the camera cuts away to a member of the public in the crowd, and the commentator has to make some particularly "hilarious" comment.

You know...

Cut to man in the crowd, stifling a yawn.

"Not keeping you awake are we sir ?.."

That sort of thing.... Headbanger Image

Martin Tyler saying "...And it's live!" before the start of every game he commentates on for Sky.
Dunno why, just gets on my nerves.

Oh yeah, mentioning Martin Tyler....

He has started to do that strange little "Motty laugh"

I'm sure it comes with old age.... :)

I saw 2 minutes of an 8 Out Of 10 Cats programme yesterday. Jimmy Carr was doing a loud, sycophantic laugh every time one of the other people said anything vaguely funny. I had to switch it off immediately.

My arris at the moment.

A bit like the Pinky's piles thread I am out of work at the moment with the shingles ( worst pain I have ever had in my life ), and I don't know if it is all the tablets I am on or what but two days ago developed the trots big time. My ****hole is red raw but the good bit was I used Pinky's tip of using water wipes , you know the baby wipe thingys and they are a great help.

Now the little thing that irritates me bit:

I left the packet of wet wipes in the cupboard right next to the toilet in the kazi. So during the 15 to 20 :P visits the routine was the same and finishing with the soothing cool wet wipes. That is until an hour ago when my missus was doing her thing ( cleaning and tidying etc... ) and when I reached for the wet wipes .....no they weren't gone, I grabbed a sheet and wiped waiting for the cool soothing moment.

She had been cleaning the bathroom with a packet of these multi-surface bleach wipes and when finished had placed them in the same cupboard on top of my wet wipes.

The screams could be heard in space.

My son saw me appearing out of the door head first and said I resembled a badger with his ****hole on fire.

Talk about look before you leap. :shock:
