I saw this on the BBC website and wondered if we might be able to have a scouse one here in the pool?

eternal earth bound pets

with one comment

thanks to notbovvered for this link:

“You’ve committed your life to Jesus. You know you’re saved. But when the Rapture comes what’s to become of your loving pets who are left behind? Eternal Earth-Bound Pets takes that burden off your mind.”

draft thesis to the proof reader

leave a comment »

I have deposited a copy of the latest draft of my thesis with the proof reader today…and feel quite pleased with myself. I celebrated with a little visit to Waitrose and the hardware store in Formby and am considering a drink of nice white wine. But, just so you can enjoy the music hall moment with me I will post (again) this little film of Gus Elen singing ‘It’s a Great Big Shame’…enjoy (and don’t forget to join in the chorus).

…well they do ask for it don’t they!!!?? If you have a few bored moments do have a go at today’s stupid poll (scroll down to the bottom to find the poll) and mess up their statistics…

Don’t worry they have one everyday so you’ll never get bored countering their reactionary tripe.

a week

leave a comment »

It has been a whole week since I last blogged and so much has happened…I can’t even begin to start on the mad business of the week, the juggling I have done is week is exemplary and the mere fact that I have managed to get through without decking someone should been seen as a feat in itself.

Probably the main reason I have survived is that Becky has been here looking after Eva and keeping an eye on me – PhD fever has been quite bad and having someone to remind me that I am fine has been very useful. Also, Becky being about has helped me to keep up my parish commitments…of which there have been a few this week.

Anyway, I wish I could write more but I really must get on with preparing my latest thesis draft which is going to my favourite proof reader tomorrow…

run’s house

leave a comment »

Eva and I have most evenings to ourselves at the moment because Mark is off with Da Boyz…as a result we have been watching some rubbish TV. However, the best thing we have found to watch is Run’s House ‘an MTV reality series. It shows the family life of rapper and hip-hop music pioneer Joseph Simmons a.k.a. Rev Run.’ We actually laugh out loud…
