Imagined conversations

Kerri writes: "I often plan to call companies to complain about people driving their company vehicles so badly - especially if they cut me off on the highway or something. I never actually do it, but I hold the entire conversation in my head. There's just so much space up there..."

Went to a friends house. They'd just had a baby. We sat down to a great meal. Afterwards they popped a video in and next thing you know there's blood and gore and tits and fannies and finally a baby. Cute baby, I even shed a tear but I didnt touch a lamb chop for 6 months after that.

Why some people shouldn't be allowed near the Internet

I have discovered, after trawling various forums related to TV and the discussion of TV shows, that there are 3 main camps into which attitudes to local television fall. I'll illustrate this by using an example of a genre of a show being shown on local television, and a typical response.

Situation: an overseas show, usually of the reality TV style is shown.
Response: "Why do we have to see overseas stuff? They suck. Why can't we make a local version?"

Situation: a reality TV style show, the formula for which is bought, is filmed and produced locally.
Response: "Why do we have to copy overseas shows? They suck. Why can't we come up with a local original idea?"

Situation: a locally-originated reality TV show is filmed and produced locally.
Response: "This sucks! It's done so much better by television stations overseas!"

Sigh.

I've concluded that it's not about the TV, it's about the fact that they like to complain.

Sky+ Minus

Al writes: "Two crap things about Sky+. One, is when you watch live TV you keep trying to fast-forward through the adverts. Two, is when you watch recorded TV you see adverts for programmes that have already happened that you want to watch. Never happy..."

The Feline Diet

DAY ONE

Breakfast: Open can of expensive gourmet food. Any flavor as long as it cost more the £1.50 per can -- and place 1/4 can on your plate. Eat 1 bite of food; look around room disdainfully. Knock the rest on the floor. Stare at the wall for awhile before stalking off into the other room.

You too can follow the simple 'Cat Diet' plan.
