Feel free to adjust your sets

The problem with democracy is that it’s bloody rubbish. But it’s better than everything else that has been tried. Churchill I think, a man with a quote for every occasion, verbosity to the point of pompousness and a the terrifying focus of the true alcoholic. I like to think of old Winny as a bit of a role model.

Anyway with two of my readers whinging over a Cameron-esque style over substance, and with the third reader (my Mum) being on holiday, democracy shall rule. But just this once, don’t get any ideas that tactics of abuse and flattery will in any way improve content, sentence formation or maddening randomism. They’re kind of hard wired in and anyway if we’re going to conduct a one-man, one-vote kind of egalitarianism, I am the Man and I’m having the Vote.

This is Misty. Get used to her, she’s going to be around for a while as even I have better things to do than poke around the dusty spaces of WordPress themes. See the hedgehog on the right? Hacked my own PHP code to get that in, I just hope someone is bloody grateful.

Right, if it’s ok with you, I’ll get back to rattling on with impotent angst, mendacious asides and curious homage’s to root vegetables.

UPDATE 2: Sidebar fixed in IE 6.0. May I just add what a useless sodding browser IE is and if it still doesn’t work, consider this the perfect trigger to upgrade to Firefox or something that does.

    I’m with Konadawg.
    Where’s the feckin’ hedgehog? Is this some kind of e-vengeance for the choclate cake that wasn’t? I think we should be told.

    It’s a bit more ‘Out of body Experience’ than ‘Misty’.

    I’m expecting to see St Peter with his clipboard appearing at the other side of that bridge.

    I was on the cusp of labelling you all blind loonies. Then I tried it in IE. Where it’s broken which may be the consequence of me hacking around PHP code last night. Works fine in Firefox and other proper browsers πŸ˜‰

    No wonder you thought it looked crap πŸ˜‰

    Assuming my PHP skills continue to increase from zero, I shall add in St. Peter. He will, of course, be riding a Marin.

    Watty, is it a word? I dunno, but if it isn’t it should be.

    That hedgehog is crap. Bridge is a bit “Jayne Eyre” as well, but it’s better than the drunken elephant pissing all over the floor. (or is a tree? I can never tell)

    I would have thought, given his penchant for beard and sandles, that St Pete would be riding a folder, or one of Sir Clive’s finest?

    Thank you for you valued and stimulating opinion, I think we can all agree that we’ve been both uplifted and refreshed by such an uplifting sentiment πŸ™‚

    You should have seen the images I rejected when googling for “Pickled Hedgehog”. I was especially pleased to find this one on a trainspotter’s site. Seemed entirely appropriate. The hedgehog rocks and is staying. No way I’m risking hacking PHP again…

    That’s a tough call Robert but I like the way you’re thinking. I may have to post a thread “What bike for St. Peter” on a certain site to see if I can explode a few blood vessels.

  8. Bit of a typo there Alex…

    “Then I tried it in IE. Where itβ„’s broken which may be the consequence of Microsoft being a useless standards ignoring bunch of fuckwits.”

  9. Robert

    One thing’s for sure….

    ~2000 years old, beard to his knees, dressed in his sandals and smock and riding his folder/Uncle Clive Special, he’d still give you a damn good run for your money πŸ˜€

    Whether he would or wouldn’t is hardly relevant is it? It’s like beating you boss at golf to the power of stupid. No, No, St. Peter you first, I insist, feel free to indulge in a bit of righteous smiting of the RLJ’rs.

    I can’t believe he’d be on one of Sir Clive’s deathtraps. Surely that’s dallying with the devil incarnate πŸ˜‰
