Keeping you up to date with everything that's been happening

Yes, I know: I've been a bit of a bad blogger recently, and I know there are people out there who are desperate to know what I've been up to (I think their names begin with 'M' and end with 'arcosy'*), so by way of an apology, here's the latest hot news from me.


Eek! *Dilemma…* I've been tracked down by an ex-girlfriend via Facebook! Do I accept her friend invitation, or do I click 'reject'? Or do I just … subtly ignore it until she forgets about me…? Lordy, these are the pressing issues of this technologically advanced time we live in. I'm not too sure why she wants to be my friend? Does she think we're going to hang out together? Does she want to send me clip-art beverages and invitations to TV quizzes? Does she want to introduce me to her new boyfriend? I don't know! Ack!!


Saw the funniest thing EVAH this afternoon, but sadly didn't get a chance to capture it on camera. Office cat turned up for some sweet sweet kitty love. We've got a bench outside the office, and I was taunting her with a leaf so she was squeezing her little kitty paws through the gap to try and grab it. Then, for some reason she decided that she wanted to jump up on to the back rest of the bench from her position squished between the bottom of the bench and the patio doors. God knows how, but she actually leapt up and somehow managed to grab on to the top with her paws, but her back legs were swinging through the slats; it was hilarious - it looked like a combination of someone slipping over a cliff and a kitty doing pull-ups; her little kitty face was showing little kitty terror, as if she was imploring me to help her. I didn't help her, but I did laugh at her. After straining a bit, she eventually hauled herself up, then wobbled on the back of the bench while looking at me with utter disdain.

Seriously, if I'd gotten a photo of that it would've been straight up on I Can Has Cheeseburger with a caption something like 'Iz dng meh pull-upz!' Damn my phone for being inside!


Something I did have my phone for… D'ya remember my half-hearted support of Togo in last year's footie world cup? Well, it struck a chord with Rob in the office. He's just gotten back from a holiday in New York, and he picked me up a gift at the United Nations.

Holy crap, your eyes don't deceive you - that's right, it's an awesome tiny Togo flag! It's even got a little pointy bit on the end of the pole! I've never felt closer to my people than I do at this moment. I mounted it on a little promotional jumping toy thing, and have placed it on top of my iMac; when the door's open it flutters in the freakin' breeze!

And do you know what else is cool? The bag it came in looks like it's from the United Federation of Planets. Awesome.

Roll on Friday evening! Why? Because I'm entertaining! Basically, I'd said to Jo ages back that at some point she'd have to come round for dinner. And a few months back she told me that she wanted to see the film Zodiac. So, seeing as I just ordered the movie on DVD, we're combining the two together! We're going to have posh M&S burgers and maybe a naughty dessert like profitta rolls, then we're going to have a gala screening of Zodiac.

What that really means is that while I've already seen the film at the cinema and thought it was awesome, the book kinda scared me shitless, and I think it's probably for the best if I have some company when I emerge myself in the story again. Not that I'll make that at all obvious to her.

It's scary! Eek!


I've also threatened Jo with the fact that I'm going to try and get her watching Battlestar Galactica. Holy crap - I've almost finished the third season on DVD; I watched 10 episodes on Sunday alone, and keep inserting the word "frak" into all my conversations! Strictly speaking I should be going out for a run tonight, but I've got four episodes left, and it'd be frakkin' rude not to watch them.

I think I should watch them - do you agree?

So say we all!

*Someone else whose name begins with 'M' and ends with 'arcosy' emailed me today to tell me that he spilled tuna juice over himself yesterday and tried to wash it out in the gents but all that happened was that he ended up with a wet top that smelt all fishy. Stupid fish-boy! Muwahaha!

What does your inner voice tell you about your ex-girlfriend? If you don't want to add her as a Facebook friend, then ya shouldn't. However, you could add her and then become a werewolf, vampire and zombie and attack her repeatedly. Or become a pirate and bomb her.

Eek! Facebook!

Delete! Delete!

If you accept her as a friend, she'll click on the link to this, your lovely cyberabode, and see what you've written about her!

As for Tiny Togo Flag: It looks massiv-


wszp? Sorry. Fell asleep. Someone mentioned footba-


Tim said...

Tara - My inner voice says 'no.' Hmmm… that was easy!

Inexplicable Device - Yes, I don't particularly want her coming her. She's getting a no.

Dora & Tina said...


DO NOT accept!!! It will end in tears. An ex should be left as just that, an ex. You move on, they move on and never the two shall meet again.

Again, I say ABORT!

Tim said...


Question: can I abort an ex? Won't it just be … messy?

Hmmm… No messier than the break-up, I suspect.

T-Bird said...

Ok, you had better have watched those last 4 episodes. I want to know what you think of the mind blowing last episode.

I made Dad watch it not so long ago. His reply? "I knew it all along"


Dora & Tina said...

Yes, said abortion will be messy, but no more messy than a facebook faceoff!!

Inexplicable DeVice said...

Lawks! I nearly slipped over in something - What's all this mess on the floor?

Yeah, come on! Have you seen the final BSG ep yet? Hmm? Have you?

Tim said...

T-Bird - Consider those last four episodes watched! I thought they were awesome, and very cryptic…

Dora - Consider the abortion done!

Inexplicable Device - That'll be aborted ex girlfriend! Mmmm, slippy!

I was very, very good and didn't facebookfriend the ex-guy that I most wanted to stalk. I know that friending him would have outed the stalking, but it was the only way to see his page...quite the dilemma. Anyway, I think it was a good decision on your part.

Tim said...

It's probably for the best, eh?
