Print Story Birthdays come but once a year

My parents wish to know what I want.

Apart from more space to store all my crap, I have no idea.

Six feet under

I don't want anything that costs less than £300.  Ah well.  I sent a generic list of suggestions of books and DVDs. 

Really need to work out what to do that day too.  I have a day off because there's no way I'm going to work on my birthday, but I haven't a clue what to do with that day off.  Most people - rather rudely - have jobs.

Batterseas Arts Centre sent a request to their email list (which I'm on 'cos I did theatre workshops there) a request for face dancers.  I have no friggen idea what they are, so I googled it.    I think I'll turn them down.

The media seems to be out for blood after that brazillian guy was shot.  I still have no idea why they thought the guy was middle eastern though.  I'd have thought most Londoners can tell the difference between Asian and Iberian.  Also bizarre that the police missed 3 times at point blank range.  Bet they find a scapegoat.

Six Feet Under seemed a lot more depressing than last season.  It's always been pretty dark, but usually there's some decent chuckles as well. 
Only laughed once this time.  Maybe it will pickj up or maybe I just wasn't in the mood.

Was depressing. Some of the subject matter was quite badly timed for me though (not saying which) which probably made it worse.

It's political correctness gone mad!

What happened to investigative journalism? by Rogerborg (4.00 / 1) #2 Thu Aug 18, 2005 at 05:07:15 AM EST
We're just going to sit back and wait for the various tentacles of Government to mould a consistent story?  What about those witnesses who swear that they saw him jumping barriers and running on to the train with a "hunted" expression?  Were they just making shit up?  If so, shouldn't they be exposed as filthy liars?  If not, then where is this new version of events coming from?

Given the past performance of the "I"PCC, I don't think this is one of these times when journos should be sitting back and agreeing that Nanny State Knows Best.

Metus amatores matrum compescit, non clementia.

So journalists cannot find them and talk to them. May have something to do with the fact they made it all up.

[Thanks for your interest in xth's comments. This accont is now spent]

Wouldn't it be easiest for them to send an email to info@Tleilaxu.ix ?
