  • @jonxyz Make fondue! #
  • @jonxyz 1 saucepan, 1 hob, 1 glass white wine, cheese, knife? (and blimey, it’s even more stupid o’clcok over there than here! #
  • hmmmm… red wine? beer? little dippy things? #
  • Eek, they’ve redesigned Gmail! And I don’t like it! #
  • @jonxyz it’s got horrid blue boxes all around everything. Ah – *now* there’s a thingy saying I can haz Themes. #

  • @markpack looks like the bandits have been hijacked en route #

  • @willhowells sounds like the germ of an idea for a lucrative coaching technique 🙂 #
  • UTI kitty’s second vet trip this week. Boisterous enough to scratch me to pieces on way into carrier on 4th attempt. #
  • Subdued kitty hissed and scratched the vet before gratefully returning to his box. #
  • Half expecting to find UTI Kitty come home one evening with Hells Angel earring and “Death to Vets” tattoo. #
  • Inspiring rhetoric in members newsletter marred a little by typos. Between us we can froge a new Liberal Britain. #
  • Word of the day: anticrepuscular. #
  • Wondering how long it will be before @helenduffett says “anticrepuscular” on Radio 5. Or @markpack crowbars it into a blogpost. #
  • So Gmailers… my “beach” theme changes with sun and sundown – which themes change according to weather? #
  • Writing complicated instructions for cat feeder and hoping she can distinguish between UTI Kitty and CHF Kitty. #
  • @markpack I’m afraid I only got the influential and award winning Encyclopedia of Ocean Sciences #

  • Good grief. They’re making artificial snow for the Christmas light switch-on. #
  • Planning phrase of the day: ceramic granite. I’m sure that features in the Rocky Horror Show. #
  • @helenduffett struggling to make any joke in reply that isn’t completely inappropriate #
  • A very recognisable tune echoing up the stairs means someone’s watching his Christmas Marple boxset early when I have to work 😦 #
  • @willhowells the Hickson version. I’m not sure I’d recognise the theme of the McEwan version. #
  • @jochristiesmith congrats on your elevation to chairpersonship #
  • @thoroughlygood treat youself – do both! 🙂 #
  • @jochristiesmith I’m just about to complete 3 years as chair of Nottm Lib Dems. Was great – with help of a good team who do all the work. #
  • @willhowells it seems to be making him laugh a lot more than I would have thought entirely likely. #
  • An unproductive trip to the litter tray is causing in depth discussion about cat pee and whether we can travel to christening this weekend #

  • If this appears at 3pm, I’ve got Twuffer licked. It just has a funny idea about what “today” is, so you need to make sure you set the d … #
  • @warrenellis that would be un cheval qui donne aux musiciens un coup de pied dans la bite #

Damn you, 1-click!

AKA some of the last things I bought on Amazon WidgetsBy no means all of them.  Just the ones that are available in the carousel widget and not bought second hand or through third party sellers.  And I certainly can’t claim to have read them all.  I tend to get through the trashy paperbacks an awful lot quicker than the serious tomes.


Click them! Buy them yourself!  This damn blog doesn’t pay its own hosting fees, you know!
