» Losing it

post office
I had a "we called and you were out" card from the postie, so traipsed down to the central post office with it to collect whatever it was. They could NOT find my package despite two people digging through piles and piles of undelivered mail. I had to leave (hospital appointment) but they promised to phone me later with news of further searching. A very apologetic chap phoned and basically said they had turned the place upside down but couldn't couldn't find anything and din't know what to suggest. I agreed that perhaps whoever had sent a 'signed for' item would be expecting a response and would check up on it.

Then I found a reminder on my computer, to go to the local post office and collect the item, as I had arranged on the website. I picked up the item, easy as pie, but am too embarrassed to apologise to the central sorting office. I'll probably do something worse tomorrow.

fag ends
When I taught a class in a prison, the inmates used to ask me to collect fag ends from the street and bring them in - they offered to provide me with a paper bag.

» My Biggest Disappointment

Unfortunately for a chap who believes in supporting the local team (not only through the purchase of vegetables), it implies you either have to speak in favour of, or by your silence accede to, appalling international blunders, criminal conspiracy and racist bullshit. I went through a phase of supporting and promoting civilisation, but now feel like going back to anarchy.

» Common

the general public in public
Eating: really, are you SO hungry you can't wait to be indoors before stuffing your face, or chewing some indigestible blob of artificially sweetened plastic? Drinking too - there was a time when folk could survive without a bottle of water in their hand - remember - or perhaps it was before you were born? In fact anything that parades animal needs in public is sooo common - this includes masticating, pissing, shitting, vomiting, masturbating and yes, dammit, breathing, why the fuck does everyone have to breathe so much... it... is.... so..... common!

» How nerdy are you?

I found that choosing my own words and putting them in the most potent order wasn't enough, so I became an Editor and now fiddle with other people's
