Guess where the quote in todays title comes from – five huggles to the winner (five more if you can say which episode). I’m sorry if today’s Roast feels a little rushed, but that’s because it was (*blush*). Moose is dragging me off to see Pan’s Labyrinth and then Neko is coming round and… I’m not sure where along the way I suddenly got a life, but I have one, and it is to the detriment of the blog. I am sorry 🙁
Enjoy the Roast whilst I am off doing things with people 🙂
You still need evidence that penguins are evil? Well, they beat up James Bond. That’s quite evil.
Microsoft are pondering how people will cope switching to Office 2007. My favourite quote has to be where one Microsoft VP interviewed says the ordinary user will switch fine… “The people who take longer are the die-hard users; the expert Excel user”. So nice to be completely written off by Microsoft. I wonder how they define an ‘Expert Excel user’ – someone who can turn the programme on?
The California Supreme Court has ruled that Internet publishers could not be held liable if they posted defamatory comments written by others. Basically it means that even individuals are protected from lawsuits when/if they republish something. In America, anyway.
Ever wondered if it’s really worth getting that 13 megapixel camera or the (much more affordable) 5 megapixel camera? Wonder no more.
Looks like the Conservatives should swop Churchill for Polly Toynbee who is, by the by, the one Guardian columnist guaranteed to get me frothing at the mouth. In fact, she’s already inspired a blog post.
There’s a new scheme in London to pass on the nice things. I think this is a great idea. Gives me the warm fluffies.
Robin Hood has been commissioned for a second series by the BBC. Why? Yes I admit I have been watching this series (to the point I’ll record it if I’m not going to be in) but it IS shite. I could write a better script! You know when there’s a silence in a film/show and you guess what the next line of dialogue or action is going to be? Well, I frequently do this with Robin Hood and invariably get it right. To the very word. So predictable. So badly acted. So camp. Why oh why are they doing a second series!?
Penguin are issuing a series of books with blank covers so you can draw your own. I think this is a supreme idea! Though I would probably never be able to come up with a design I was happy with.
How do you end your emails? At work I go for ‘kindest regards’ unless I know the person really well, then they get a variation/nothing. Personal emails tend to be some variation of Cas/C =)/Cxxx (if you get that last, well, you know you’ve made it 😉 ). Anyway, it’s nice to know I’m not the only one who agonizes over how to end an email.
And to end on a high note, Free Hugs. This video got sent to me in an email and, whilst I was initial skeptical, I stuck with it and by the end I had a grin on a mile wide and such a load of warm fuzzy feelings toward my fellow man you wouldn’t believe.
