Christmas

I know it's a bit early but Oh how I love Christmas. Not the day itself, just the run up to it. The switching on of the lights on Oxford Street, the trip to Hamley's, the office Christmas party (OK, not so much that one) and the numerous parties and dinners you're invited to by friends old and new.

Christmas day is of course always completely stressful and a nightmare to navigate especially when you're spending it with your girlfriend's parents. Alas this year I think we'll be staying in London probably watching the 'It's a Wonderful Life' DVD. (A bit of a tradition of mine that spans back to my childhood) If truth be told I'm getting a little bored if it now.

In any case, I'm an early Christmas shopper so I'll start looking out for presents as of early next week. I might take the easy way out and go for iPods all round but it very much depends on just how imaginative I can get.

79 DAYS UNTIL THE BIG DAY!

DIY

Time to do some DIY. Went to B&Q to buy a ladder. Got it home, opened it up, climbed up the top of it with my hammer and what did it say on the top step?

"Danger, end of ladder, climb no further"

Er....

I'm going to scour all the manuals for my DIY equipment. I have a funny feeling that I'm going to find a few more stupidly hilarious warnings.

*EDIT*

On a bottle of sleeping pills from Boots:

"warning: may cause drowsiness."

It gets worse doesn't it?

Made me laugh

Possibly an old one but it's the first time I've heard it so for those of you who want a good joke:

This was a conversation between a US naval ship and Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in late 1995.


Canadians: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.


Americans: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the north to avoid a collision.


Canadians: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.


Americans: This is the captain of a US Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.


Canadians: No, I say again, you divert YOUR course.


Americans: This is the Aircraft Carrier US LINCOLN, the second largest ship in the United States Atlantic Fleet. We are accompanied with three Destroyers, three Cruisers and numerous support vessels. I DEMAND that you change your course 15 degrees north. I say again, that's one-five degrees north, or counter-measures will be undertaken to ensure the safety of this ship.


Canadians: This is a lighthouse. Your call.

LOL :)

Punk'd

Just finished watching the Timberlake one. Very very funny. Can't stop laughing. Then it hits me, Punk'd is 'Beadle's About' minus the funny hand.

Word of the week (WOW)

It's a little bit of a tired concept yet I've not done it before so I'll try to stem the boredom a little and add a bit of spice and find a word each week that I think my friends would use to describe me.

This week's word is......

Platitudinous

adj : dull and tiresome but with pretensions of significance or originality; "bromidic sermons" [syn: bromidic, corny, platitudinal]

(Just like any other blogger I suppose)

Mystic Ball

Someone please explain to me HTF this works?

Like I Said

When on earth was the word said replaced with the word like? It seems to me as if every other person I meet finds it acceptable to substitute said with like.

An example.

I met this girl and I was like, "alright?"
she was like, "yeh"
I was like, "wanna go for a drink?'
She was like "course, why not?"

Very annoying

Quote of the day...

"The President is a cross-eyed Texan warmonger, unelected, inarticulate, who epitomises the arrogance of American foreign policy"

Boris on George "dubya" Bush

Boris, you're hilarious and you've made a dull day a little brighter :)

You know those days when you wake up with a pair of pocket aces only to be undone by a bad flop and lose to trip threes? Today is one of those days. :(
