Anyone..

...looking for a really cheap 3 piece suite? One of my friends is getting rid of it and hasn't got the space for his new place (£50). Either collect from Sevenoaks or he's got a van that can deliver it...

Although I don't mind watching Brand's stand-up, as the street urchins would say 'he ain't all that'. Similarly with Woss, I think his show on Friday is getting boring and the format is very tired. Like Noel's House Party, perhaps this could be a good moment to review his TV show?

"Every morning, when Alaskans wake up, one of the first things they do, is look outside to see if there are any Russians hanging around.

"And if there are, you gotta go up to them and ask: 'What are you doing here?' And if they can't give you a good reason, it's our responsibility to say, you know, 'Shoo! Get back over there!'"

* Try typing 'Katie Couric' into YouTube and see the real interviews, they are ace..

An ode to BBC iplayer

9th October 2008 (16:35)

Oh, how I love you, let me count the ways...

As well as downloading and streaming it on my laptop, I think I have found another way of watching bbc programmes on the go and utilising my stupid Nokia N95 (its not stupid, its just too intelligent for its own good and therefore just drains the battery)see this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/bbcinternet/2008/10/bbc_iplayer_goes_portable.html

If you like blogs, then I thoroughly recommend this one, I don't think its just BBC technology navel gazing but a really clear way of communicating to your audience the latest schemes that they have simmering away.

I was listening to LBC this morning (yes I know, but it is entertaining) and this story came up so I went googling around for it.

I think rather than further glorification it would have been better for the council to have put up some boards explaining the history of it and how Churchill was shot at.

Memes (normally don't do them but here goes).

Sarah Palin married her high school boyfriend, Todd Palin, on August 29, 1988. The Palin family lives in Wasilla, about 45 miles (72 km) north of Anchorage. The Palins have two sons (Track, 19, and Trig, four months) and three daughters (Bristol, 17; Willow, 14; and Piper, 7) [ages as of August 2008]. Todd Palin has said Track's name came from the interest Sarah's parents had in the sport and the fact that he was born in the sport's season; Bristol was named after Bristol Bay in Alaska, where Todd grew up and where he does commercial fishing; Willow was named after Willow, Alaska; Piper got her name because it is uncommon and "a cool name"; Trig's name is Norse for "strength".

1)Your first-born will be named after your parents favorite sport:
Squash

2)Your second-born will be named after a nearby area that you're not from but you like the sound of part of the name, and maybe you have nostalgic memories of said place:
Bath

3)Your third-born will be named after another nearby place, for no reason other than you already have two children and don't have time to put much thought into another name:
Bellingham

4)Your fourth gets a "cool" name:
Kat

5)Your fifth gets something mythological, possibly straight out of Lord of the Rings:
Elbereth

OMFG - Olympics

21st August 2008 (13:59)

The Americans (both male and female) have dropped the bloody baton in their heat races (4x100m).

Meanwhile, the British men are rubbish because our last guy only ran out of the starting box, earning us a disqualification. So much for defending our gold medal.

And apparently the 16 year old Chinese gymnast who won is 14, although her passport says that she is 16.

Come on Philips Idowu!
