halloween enjoy you will

I don't normally like or approve of dressing up pets. It's just wrong. (And here's little frou frou in her leather dominatrix outfit)

These are still wrong, but something about it quite tickles me.

hfw does something new shock

New series of river cottage nonsense this thursday.

Obviously can't get overly excited or carried away, but it almost looks like it might be new stuff. i.e. not seen before 30 or 40 times, or packaged with a new voice over.


Not that I'm knocking river cottage, but they have been kinda dining out on the same 30 minutes of footage for the last 2 years.

Fair makes your heart proud

I saw a really sweet card in the local adult learning centre yesterday and thought it the ideal thing to mock and ridicule on the site.

I think to appreciate the full beauty of this, you have to get that it was obviously sent at the end of a particularly intense course on literacy, including of course, spelling and grammar.

Thought for the day

Is a country anything like a mug tree, and where would you buy one?

the eyes (don't) have it

Is it ironic or just sad that I have a voucher for a discounted eye test at D&A, but I can't see it anywhere to go and make the booking?

It's all in the name

Was at the college this afternoon, introducing another 20 odd people (well, some of them odd, you know what i mean) to the joys of blogging.

Perusing the walls whilst everyone was composing the masterpiece of their first ever post, I saw a great poster advertising some computer courses. The options were:

photoshop (fair enough)
advanced photoshop (with you so far)
super advanced photoshop (ok, hang on)

I'm waiting until the really difficult courses:
ooper super advanced photoshop
opper super dooper advanced photoshop
shit me, will you look at what we're doing now photoshop

Not quite sure where super trooper advanced photoshop fits in. Somewhere though. Probably all about putting colour washes and glitter on everything [which is what was done in the seventies you see].
