13/12/2013: I consider it a step too far in cubbyhole enfurnishment terms.

24/11/2013: I always had this view of French politics as being all about people building barricades in the streets, waving tattered flags and guillotining the rich. Maybe I watch too many musicals. - Icy North

23/11/2013: We are the history seekers! Searching for those sepia glimpses of a parallel universe, for those streets we recognise although we've never been there before - Cactuscafe

21/11/2013: Icy, I was supposed to be working today! Now I'll get nothing done... - Gnomon

20/11/2013: I prefer the sandwich analgy of Guide ML... seriously... your writing, the 'text' forming the entry, of course, being the butter, and bacon and egg filling, and the Guide ML being the sliced bread, to hold the filling - 2legs

13/11/2013: Only the polar bears came out well - Gnomon

12/11/2013: It's much more alarming than you realise. If I start y'alling I might forget what biscuits are - I'll start thinking they are special scones used for dunking in gravy! I'm at altogether the wrong latitude to be y'alling. It's unnatural! - U891566KB

11/11/2013: To carv your turnip for the eve,

when spirits outside run free,

to carve that turnip so perfect, or suffer the non carved turnip misary. - 2legs

25/10/2013: ...in 1500 your risk of being killed by a car was zero, whereas something like ten people in the UK are killed by cars every day. Swings and roundabouts. (Insert gag about swings and roundabouts being dangerous too). - Hoovooloo

23/10/2013: Pandas having difficulty getting pregnant? Have they considered putting them on Welfare Benefits? - swl

22/10/2013: Other than providing kisses, princes in Disney films are invariably completely useless. Yet everyone complains about how the princesses are unsuitable role models for girls. - Bluebottle

20/10/2013: I have been to see Sunshine on Leith. It was Ok. Big dance number at the end. Does that make it Scollywood? - Pink Paisley

If its readers don't exist, it doesn't exist either. - Gosho

12/10/2013: ...luckily this site seems to attract a strange sub section of society who tend to avoid abuse when possible and at least try to make it elegant when not. - pebblederook

10/10/2013: Ah, but Gosho, is this really something you think of a lot, or is it several similar thoughts which occupy the same space in your head? - Geggs

07/10/2013: Here, Sheen is given very little to work with, script-wise, and as a result clearly just thinks 'Ah, sod it, may as well just have some fun.' As a result his performance is so staggeringly camp and over-the-top it is probably best viewed via the Hubble space telescope. - Awix

06/10/2013: I have no idea what anything costs, except as a genral rule of thumb Ferraris cost a lot and bread is a bit cheaper. - pebblederook
