» Best Films Ever

V for Vendetta.
The film, is getting so perilously close to today in the UK. One of the best quotes from the film below, it almost brings tears to my eyes as I wish a similar hero was out there:-

"Good evening, London. Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of every day routine -- the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration - whereby those important events of the past usually associated with someone's death, or the end of some awful bloody struggle - are celebrated with a nice holiday, I thought we could mark this November the 5th, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat. There are of course those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now, orders are being shouted into telephones, and men with guns will soon be on their way.
Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth - and the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there?
Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well, certainly there are those who are more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable. But again, truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.
I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now High Chancellor, Adam Sutler. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent. Last night I sought to end that silence. Last night I destroyed the Old Bailey, to remind this country of what it has forgotten. More than four hundred years ago a great citizen wished to embed the fifth of November forever in our memory. His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words, they are perspectives.
So if you've seen nothing, if the crimes of this government remain unknown to you, then I would suggest you allow the fifth of November to pass unmarked. But if you see what I see, if you feel as I feel, and if you would seek as I seek, then I ask you to stand beside me one year from tonight, outside the gates of Parliament, and together we shall give them a fifth of November that shall never, ever be forgot!"

Evil Sister
Picture the scene, easter, we had all been given our easter eggs of joy, I decide to save mine and place in room for safe keeping, some hours later I go there for a bit and find it's all been eaten by my 4 year old sister who was supposed to be in bed. Not a happy bunny was I and I never got a replacement, 25 years on I still remember the look in her eyes when confronted with the truth.

It was huge and chocolatey.

Washing a Motorbike
You'd think it would be easy would you not? Using the powerhose the muck is coming off well, for the finale I thought I'd just put it up on it's centre stand to get to the hard to reach bits, whilst lifting onto the stand my foot slipped on the soapy floor, the bike fell over away from me destroying all the right side faring, the mirror and bending the brake lever and dragging me down on top of it. To make it worse as it had fallen close to the wall I couldn't get enough leverage to lift it by myself so had to fetch the wife as well who was trying her best not to laugh. the humiliation and cost of putting that right :(

Length about 2 metres and soapy. *cries*

Moi Cats
I have 2 kitties Tigger & Piglet, Piglet is a long haired kitty, which means she has long hair poking between her little toe pads, tigger does not, they regularly play chase with piglet running behind tigger, then they run across a shiny surface such as the dining room table or the wood floor tigger changes direction quickly, piglet does not and slides off or into walls depending on surface, it's the fact that she looks so embarrassed afterwards that makes it so funny.

Also Tigger has regularly stretched whilst laying on windowsill in the sun and fallen off, still not learned.

I love cats. Delicate they are not.

No apologies for the length of her fur, it's genetic.

» Tales of the Unexplained

Quite a number of years ago I was having a sneaky smoke outside my parents house as it was verboten to smoke inside, it was dark and all was quiet, I had a feeling something was watching me from the alleyway to the side of the house, it was pitch black, but I thought I'd have a look not being a tiny bloke and all, but I got close and started to feel weird, closer still and scared was I, as I got to almost the edge of the alley I had an episode of what can only be known as primal fear that almost voided my bowels and I had to run inside and lock the door. I checked the next day and nothing there and have never had it again, but whatever it was scared me so deeply, felt so evil that it cannot have been nothing. Still can't explain it and it hasn't happened since. Spooky.

Length - Not far enough it was proper scary.
