Some children are so cruel

Ding dong bell
Pussy’s in the well

Who put her in?
Little Tommy Thin.

Who pulled her out?
Little Tommy Stout.

What a naughty boy was that
To drown poor pussy cat
Who ne’er did any harm
But killed all the mice in Father’s barn.

I'm still around

Not that any of you would know it, but I'm actually still around.

The weather is cooler so that excuse is no longer valid when it comes to not blogging but the rest still are. Also, the broadband connection in my flat, one I received free courtesy of the bar/club downstairs, has stopped working. Well, I'm sure that it still works but they've probably restricted their wifi broadcast area after noticing the heavy traffic (mostly downloads) they were getting from an unknown source.

There are quite a few snippets of news that I should be revealing (eg the hammer epispode) and I'll get to them eventually. Most of them aren't that interesting but I did go for a job interview in Potter's Bar for a position on the Isle of Man.

I didn't get the job which was annoying but it meant that I didn't have to face the agonising decision of whether to accept it or not. It would have meant a huge increase in salary but I'd not have relished moving to a wet, boring island in the middle of the Irish sea. Strangely enough, South Africans on the Isle of Man are in the news at the moment.

If you haven't already, read the article and see how some South Africans still deserve to be greeted with 'I've never met a nice South African'. And the guy's a bloody pastor, would you believe?

Anyway, thanks for all the sweet comments and concerns about my well-being. Normal services will resume eventually.
