Let’s have a public holiday open thread.

Hello,
No work today, no work on Monday unless you do an important job. I could have told you years ago that all that study wouldn’t get you anywhere. Mind you your parents probably think very highly of you which must be nice, judging from my inbox, mine presently wish I’d disappeared on holiday years ago. I am trying to be sympathetic to their position but I’ve been alive 32 years -get over it.

Anyway whilst I plot something to get them really angry, let’s have your weekend plans. Is anyone going fishing? I’ve always imagined that would be rather restful. I’ve got my eye on some lurid paints at the moment. The truth is I have no talent for art or anything else but I quite fancy knocking out a couple of brightly coloured abstract paintings for the hell of it.

I’ve been having a good chuckle over the end of the worlds most tedious relationship. I’m afraid I blame both of them but her slightly more. Though that may be more to do with a hatred of neurotic women than anything else.

What else am I up to. Drinking red wine, footering with various fortune telling bits and bobs, smoking, looking out the window and maybe a short stroll at some point. What a fascinating life I lead.

So over to you. Let’s have funny stuff, exciting plans and for some reason I quite fancy hearing some mother-in-law jokes.

    Nothing interesting really :( Have meetings on Monday… and I’m playing poker with my mates tonight. Oh yeah, payday is here.

    Heard there’s a good African music fest in Trafalgar Sq all day on Monday ,will be checking it out ,

  3. sid — on 26th May, 2007 at 5:03 pm  

    Listening to great music, playing with the kids, smoking big fatties and catching up with the paperwork. Sorry!

    As for Liz and Nirpal: heard the names, read some of their individual articles but I’m pleased to have successfully resisted investing any of my own time in their otherwise private, hyper-publicised, soap opera.

    Its rainy and horrible and cold :( So im basically staying in.

  5. Leon — on 26th May, 2007 at 7:09 pm  

    Paid yesterday, good night at the pub (yay for JD and coke!), today watching the rain, Frasier on DVD and this screen to curtail possible boredom.

    Oh yeah going to write yet another post about changes to my blogs look and links (sorry Katy!)…

    Might go away for the day on monday if the weather decides to behave itself. Apart from that, tidy the house before the folks come back and play with my new camera…..

    According to someone over at Urban75.com:

    Did you know…

    …that the average brain has about 10 billion neurones, with each one having connections with between 1,000 and 10,000 others. Each neurone represents about 5 bytes worth of data. Multiply five bytes x 10,000 links in the brain, and then multiply that by the 10,000 neurones, and you get the figure of 500,000 gigabytes to store all our thoughts, feelings and memories. In other words, we each have the brain capacity to store the entire contents of the World Wide Web.

    Isn’t that amazing?

    wow leon that is pretty amazing!

    skipped a picnic on the heath( brr..boy was it disappointing weather) and stayed inside nice and cosy all day, easing into the long weekend, heh. housewarming lunch party tomorrow..taking it easy on monday, and going to an exhibition on tuesday..lemme see what else. oh a huge to-do list..

  9. sonia — on 27th May, 2007 at 2:00 am  

    dunno about that ‘media couple’ – the very idea of dissecting your relationship in public seems madness to me .. ugh. cant think of anything worse, dont know how either one put up with the other.

  10. Sunny — on 27th May, 2007 at 4:21 am  

    ahhhh… I won 8 squid. That’ll be good for a nice stint at a coffeeshop in Amsterdam next week :)

  11. Chairwoman — on 27th May, 2007 at 12:43 pm  

    But I thought you were a vegetarian :-)

  12. rockmother — on 27th May, 2007 at 1:04 pm  

    Did Liz and Nirpal finally divorce because they were as bored of each other as we are of them?!

    They are the posh and Becks of the literary world. Dull.

    I’m personally more concerned the intended Stop and Search laws that are no doubt going to be forced through imminently. I have felt for some time that we are returning to the dark days of SUS and SPG – a foreboding thought. It doesn’t feel like we are living in a democracy anymore.

  13. Sunny — on 27th May, 2007 at 2:57 pm  

    But I thought you were a vegetarian

    But I am? ;)

  14. sonia — on 27th May, 2007 at 3:24 pm  

    your amsterdam trip sounds fun sunny – what excuse are you using to slink off there ? :-)

  15. ZinZin — on 27th May, 2007 at 3:29 pm  

    Thanks for that Leon.
    I never knew that the human brain could hold that much porn.

  16. Sunny — on 27th May, 2007 at 3:34 pm  

    what excuse are you using

    a mate’s stag party. It’ll be a strictly cultural event. Promise.

  17. Chairwoman — on 27th May, 2007 at 4:27 pm  

    Well what will you do with the squid then?

  18. ZinZin — on 27th May, 2007 at 4:28 pm  

    CW, Do you really want an answer to that?

  19. Sunny — on 27th May, 2007 at 4:31 pm  

    Well what will you do with the squid then?

    errmm… 8 squid as in I won 8 pounds at poker…! not those underwater thingys with tentacles.

  20. Chairwoman — on 27th May, 2007 at 4:49 pm  

    I’ve not heard ‘squid’ for ‘quid’ before.

    Must be my advancing years.

  21. sonia — on 27th May, 2007 at 5:39 pm  

    ooh sounds like great fun sunny ..enjoy the *culture* and have a spliff for me won’t ya/

  22. sonia — on 27th May, 2007 at 5:40 pm

  23. William — on 27th May, 2007 at 6:54 pm

  24. Rumbold — on 27th May, 2007 at 7:25 pm  

    “for some reason I quite fancy hearing some mother-in-law jokes.”

    How do you stop your mother-in-law from drowning?

    Take your foot off her head.

  25. sid — on 27th May, 2007 at 7:31 pm  

    Amsterdam, so many fond memories of lovely girlfriends and imbibing drugs. Such a great place before me bred’s started stabbing film makers.

  26. sid — on 27th May, 2007 at 7:36 pm  

    What do you do if you miss your mother-in-law?

    Reload and try again.

  27. ZinZin — on 27th May, 2007 at 7:45 pm  

    That should be inbreds, right?

  28. sid — on 27th May, 2007 at 7:51 pm  

    if you like

  29. William — on 27th May, 2007 at 7:52 pm  

    Recently I have started taking flaxseed (linseed oil)
    for the omega 3. Linseed oil is what we put on cricket bats as a kid. Every time after lunch and tea my mouth ends up feeling as if it has just chewed on a cricket bat.

  30. ChiliPalmer — on 27th May, 2007 at 8:05 pm  

    Behind every successful man stands a devoted wife, and a surprised mother-in-law.

  31. Clairwil — on 27th May, 2007 at 10:42 pm  

    Oh I love Amsterdam. It is my dream to live there on a nice boat.

    As for the future;

    This week we picklers will be developing emotionally and finding romance. Hidden matters will also be coming to light which is nice because I do love a good revelation. Money looks good for us all. So good that I might buy a hat.

    Thanks for the mother in law jokes. Do keep them coming.

  32. Leon — on 27th May, 2007 at 11:37 pm  

    This week we picklers will be developing emotionally and finding romance.

    *raises eyebrow*

    We will?

    Like the bit about money…

  33. The iLL Man — on 28th May, 2007 at 12:35 am  

    Haven’t developed emotionally since I read me first mucky mag………..

    And that was hardly ‘development’

  34. The iLL Man — on 28th May, 2007 at 12:48 am  

    My Mother In Law said to me, “I’ll dance on your grave.” I said, “I hope you do. I’m being buried at sea.”

    My Father In Law was driving down the road and was pulled over by a policeman. The policeman said, “Your wife fell out of the car five miles back.” My Father In Law replied, “Thank God for that, I thought I’d gone deaf!”
