Part of me wants to break down barriers, set people free and make the world a better place. A bigger part of me wants to sit on the sofa, drink tea and play through old Nintendo games.

09/02/10 : Time gentlemen please

A procrastinator does not make a good blogger. I mean, I've left it a bit late to finish and publish my new year post ...

I had started writing about the Big Freeze™, and how I'd avoided the worst of its affects by cleverly taking a couple of weeks off work to do, well, not a lot really (although I did start a Zelda fest - currently half way through The Ocarina of Time).

I was going to write about Jonathon Ross leaving the BBC, which most news sources seemed to think was the most important thing happening in the world at the time. Actually, it's something I'm a bit disappointed about, partly because I quite like the guy but mostly because it feels as if the people who delight in continually complaining about him have "won" (these are the same people who will use anything as a stick to beat the BBC with).

The other thing I was going to write about is something we probably have to look forward to this year; smug toff David Cameron becoming Prime Minister. And before anyone complains that the term "toff" is somehow "classist", a toff is not just someone who's upper class, it's someone who's upper class and thinks that that's normal and who doesn't have a clue how ordinary people live. He's one of those politicians who plays on media spun fears and then promises a solution. Such as fixing "Broken Britain". Certain types of people (generally the same people mentioned in the last paragraph actually) lap all this up, forgetting who it was who decided that Britain was broken in the first place.

Anyway, that's enough rambling from me, I'm calling time on this blog. Some of the more interesting posts are below, or if you're really bored, have a look through the archives. If I ever do another blog it will be anonymous (and obviously not on this domain) but I'm not sure if I'll bother.

Thank you and goodnight.
