    Did you know that "Ahoy hoy" is how Alexander Graham Bell thought everyone should answer the phone?  Now, of course, the only person who really does is Mr Burns on The Simpsons. Thursday was a day of adventure.  I went through to Newcastle and met up with the parents.  It was lovely.  It was nice...

    Game of Thrones tonight!  Can't wait.  Also, finally got a release date for the new season of Veronica Mars. Gutted about Notre-Dame.  After everything it survived, all that history gone. Found out about the placement on Friday.  They've already got someone for the first one but, if I'm willing t...

  • How can EU have any pudding
    April 13, 2019
    So, something I forgot in my last entry about the insanity that is Brexit. The length of the delay in leaving the EU means that we have to hold elections for the EU parliament.  This is what May was desperate to avoid.  But, it's happening. I'd expect them to get a much bigger turnout than…

    Yup, it's another Brexit entry. So, last Thursday, the Cooper - Bowles bill went to the Lords.  There was a lot of filibustering.  This led to a lot of cloture (I.E. shut the fuck up) motions.  Sadly, the filibustering worked and the bill was delayed until Monday.  (For some reason, the Lords do ...

  • You can’t take my fries from me

    Got my new glasses today, so here's the obligatory pic.  Before anyone say sit, no I will not smile. Forgot to mention last weekend, but I've been put forward for a work experience thing through the council.  It's in digital media.  So, I might get my hands on a video editing machine again. Bit o...

    Monday was the second round of indicative votes. This time, the motions up for debate and vote were customs union, common market, second referendum whatever happens and one guaranteeing parliamentary sovereignty. As the debate was going on, there was a bit of a commotion in the public gallery. En...

    So, I did try cooking something new last week.  I cooked steak.  T'wasn't bad, but I needed a bit of tweaking so it's medium rare, not medium. I had a look through the slow cooker recipe book I bought last week.  Most of the recipes involve a lot of cooking before I put everything into…

  • An update to the update

    We now know what is going to be voted on tomorrow. There's a fair bit to explain here. what is commonly known as the Working Agreement is actually two documents.  There's the WA itself.  This is the document that dictates our relationship with the EU immediately on leaving.  This is stuff like th...
