Yesterday was a busy day.
Herself and I went for a drive. I gave her the grand tour of the village which delayed our trip considerably, as even though it was only just after lunchtime the place was crammed to the gills with The Great Unwashed all wandering around like zombies on dope. She conceded that my tales of mayhem and madness were indeed justified, and even maybe a little understated. My grumpiness is fully exonerated.
Anyhows, today we are a bit knackered after our excursions. I decided to have a quiet day watching the bird feeders I bought yesterday to replace the one the jackdaws damaged. There seems to be a remarkable lack of avian activity though. Maybe they have given up on me? Or maybe they are all applying to be extras in That Damned Film?
I was browsing around and there seems to be a bit of an interest in American court cases.
First there was a piece about a harmless [take it from me – at 83 he’s pretty harmless] old black comedian who has been released from prison which seems to have upset a lot of people. I don’t know why as it doesn’t affect anyone except the chap himself. So what if he was guilty or innocent? It doesn’t affect the ebb and flow of the tides and is really of no consequence to anyone except maybe the alleged victims of whatever he was supposed to have done.
Then there is the business of Britney Spears. This seems to be garnering considerable column inches in the meeja for some strange reason. For a start, what is it about this middle aged female that attracts so much attention? I gather she is a singer and a “megastar” but these days any female with long [dyed] blond hair who is prepared to flash her tits and legs on stage can apparently reach the heights of fame. Nowadays a good public relations company is all that’s needed; you don’t need any talent whatsoever.
But apparently the fuss is nothing to do with her singing. From what I can gather the whole fuss is over her attempts to get rid of her father [or someone].
Why can’t she just politely ask him to stop living in her conservatory?
