The BBC don't seem to like me, and probably quite a few other dyslexic people too.

I use Goo and have done since the first few weeks of me being a member of the site. I tried Alabaster and Brunel, but because of my dyslexia I find them excessively difficult to read, Goo is much easier for me and yes I have a similar problem on most other websites too.
Well the BBC have made it clear in the past that they don't really care for any of the skins other than Brunel and ditto for the people who use them. However they've always made smilies and such available in all skins. However this latest batch are not visible in goo and as some people use them instead of words it can make reading some posts a bit like reading a book with half the words missing.

I wish people would engage their brain before opening their mouth.

A doctor, a Scottish doctor, has called for a tax, like that on alcohol and tobacco, to be laid on chocolate. Apparently eating chocolate makes you fat, I always thought it was eating too much and not moving around enough that could make you fat.
I think this doctor is being a bit of a sissy really, we shouldn't just add excise to chocolate, we should add it to softdrinks, hamburgers, hotdogs, cinema popcorn, crisps [chips fot those of you who are foreign], biscuits, cheese, butter [or, indeed, any spread with more than 4% fat], sausages, pies, etc.
Also I think we're forgetting the not moving around enough aspect. Everyone with a chair should be made to pay a 'sitting on your @r$€' tax and people should be forced to wear a pedometer and if you haven't done enough steps you should be taxed.
As an added incentive we should also just tax fat people as they are wearing out the pavements and using up the NHS. Oh and we could maybe make them wear signs round their necks which say things like "I'm lazy and I eat too much!" or "I used to be able to fit through doors."

It's a new musical extravaganza

Viami Mice Main Theme - This was written as a theme tune to a short comic, script and short story I wrote about two crime fighting police mice with a very 80's theme and the music reflects that.

Once, not that long ago, i.e. when I lived in Brum, I'd have been able to do 50 push-ups and 50 pull-ups without taking a break. I just managed 15 push-ups and it nearly killed me; after just 2 pull-ups it felt like my left arm was going to burst and the main vein looked about the size of high tension steel cabling...
Methinks I need to start doing exercise-ey thing again, and maybe work on my upper body strength.

Yikes, that wouldn't have been quite as funny if it had been one-click buying...

I've just been looking at rice cookers and the nice Sanyo one which will cook rice for sushi, porridge, pudding and a normal meal costs £85. I was so shocked i clicked on the add to shopping basket button. If I hadn't noticed the rather high total when I went to pay for the other stuff I'd bought I would now be the owner of both a very nice rice cooker and a not so nice letter from my bank manager.
