Right I’m angry for once. I never get like this so rant alert:
I’m stood in Lidl in line waiting to buy the drink I went in to get. There’s one till open and the queue is stretching half way down the store, a good 10-15 of us. I get within 1 person of being able to put my stuff on the conveyor and another till opens. I go to the other till, well I try, and some fat bitch pushes me out of the way. So, trying not to cause a scene or anything I go back to the original till where people are now piling to get past me to put their stuff on. No-one says to me “please, you were in front of me, go ahead” or anything. I’m left there stood between two queues with people deliberately not looking at me so I can’t go in either. I say “thanks a lot” loud voice to which everybody just looks at their shoes. I fuck off without getting anything at all despite being in the shop for over 10 minutes and having the correct change and one item.
There are some cunts in this world, and they shop in Lidl.

I see Channel 4 have got what they wanted by kicking someone out of the house for a racist remark. They didn’t have to wait long did they? I wonder how many people were on their list of “people who speak before engaging their brains”. I sort of, in a way, feel sorry for the girl who’s been kicked out as the only reason she was in there was for Channel 4 & Endemol to use her for their own means. I know that’s the case with everybody who’s ever been in there but with her it’s more than just a spectacle – she’s been used in a political way. It doesn’t make the channel or the production company look big or clever at all.
On the other hand they might not have been expecting this to happen whatsoever. However, it’s happened so close to the start of the show I’m struggling to believe it’s not been planned.
Anyway, enough of opinions on the news and ethics in the media. I don’t usually do that kind of thing.
See the England game? I was 1 goal out but at least I was one short and it was a better result than I predicted. Crouch’s one touch passing was a joy to watch, Joe Cole’s goal would be shown everywhere if it was scored by Rooney or Ronaldinho and Beckham’s passing vision was exceptional. Even the opposition gave us a fair game, which is unusual for a lower-ranked nation who usually waste time, break up play with fouls, try and wind people us and roll around for no reason (see Andorra for an example).
Poor old Jenson Button. When asked “Isn’t Hamilton doing well?”, he replied; “I don’t know, I’ve been too far back to see”. A good, smooth driver who’s style and personality I prefer to Hamilton’s. Then again, Hamilton’s not allowed too much of a personality as he drives for McLaren (see D. Couthard for details, pre-Red Bull Racing, and Alonso post-Renault).
Well, I was only popping on here to complain about Channel 4 & Endemol and I’ve written loads. I’d best get on, I’ve got plenty to do.
Have a great weekend,

England v Estonia tonight. I predict a 2-0 win for England. It’ll do for me. Gonna slouch out with a bottle of some kind of alcohol and watch it. Can’t wait as I’m very bored of work today. It’s just not grabbing me.
After being inspired by the radio, here’s my hot and not list for the week (I doubt it will be regular, maybe monthly if I fancy it). Basically a list of things I’m liking and not liking (or gone off slightly, at least) at the moment.
Come next month that might be all back to front so I might keep you posted. I can’t see myself going off football too much for too long, can you?! And I’m really really really going to try not to use adverbs 😉
2 games in 2 days, 2 legs won in both. However, one was enough for me to win and one wasn’t. On sunday I played my first Super League game for a couple of months or so and lost 3-2. One of those close run things. I played quite well-ish, better than previous Super League games anyway. The team won 5-3 so that’s good
On Monday we had a knockout game (which I thought was meant to be last week) against a team 2 leagues below us who we beat 4-1. I won mine 2-0 and played as well as I needed to. Hit a 140 close to the end to seal it. I worked out that I’d scored 1002 points (2 x 501) and my opponent scored just short of 500 so I’d have won twice before they even finished their first game. It was quite hard work strangely <– (adverb, sorry. There’s probably a few more in there I’d not thought about too). The pub wasn’t set up to host darts matches, in my opinion, despite having 2 boards and enthusiastic players. There was a table more or less in the way, if you stood to the left of the oche to play you had to stand behind it. Was a bit stupid but we won and that’s the main thing. Don’t know who we’ve got in the next round.
Position: 2 (drawn out of a hat)
My Result: 2-0 win
Team Result: 4-1 win
Season 180 Count: 1
Anyway, that’s your lot until I write again. I wonder if that table I’ve made for the hot and not will work. – It didn’t so I’ve edited it. If I want HTML tables I should be allowed to have them!!

My car survived, by the way. Had one bearing done under warranty but had to pay for the other. £130ish. Bloody annoying but at least it’s working again now. I just hope if they break again it’ll happen before May next year!
I’m pleased it’s Friday. Even though it’s only been a 4 day week it’s felt like a 6 for some reason. I was more than ready for the weekend yesterday.
I had a customer today from Stockton in the North East. I wont go into too many details but I sold them something at work over the internet and I don’t know how they managed to use a computer to get it. I’m surprised they’re allowed electricity to be honest. They’d be described a an ‘oxygen thief’ in certain circles.
Off to Saddleworth tonight for the Whit Friday band contests which should be fun. Bit of a shame that it clashes with the England v Brazil game, I’ll have to set a video up for that and watch it tomorrow morning I think.
Right, I’m off to try and waste and avoid work as much as I can for the past 2 hours. I’ve done quite a lot this week and have had enough I tell you! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
Think it was meant to be a cup knockout game. Bloody opposition didn’t show up! Bunch of softies.
