One way or another, it represents five fucking years of wasted time.
Five fucking years! When I think of all the things I could have done instead of wasting my time here, the mind boggles. Herself never misses an opportunity to tell me that it’s a complete waste of bloody time and that nobody reads it anyway. I just point out that so far nearly half a million people have read it [actually it’s 457,630 but who’s counting?] and that can’t all have been searching for a bit of porn. If I eliminate the porn seekers, that still leaves nearly 10,000 visitors which isn’t bad.
Apart from three very sharp angles, 5 is a nice round number. Not quite as round as 0 or 6, or even 8 for that matter. Come to think of it, 5 is the least round number apart maybe from 4? Anyhows, it is still a notable number and I think it deserves a few pints tonight in celebration.
I suppose it’s about time I put its name down for secondary school?
