Stuff that pops into my head. Innit.

Hi everyone out there in internet land, it's been quite a while since I last inflicted a blog post on you (ok, it's only been about 2 weeks, but it seems like a long while), and because it seems like a long while, I'm going to do a sort of retrospective of what's been happening since my last post.

Australia have tamely surrendered the Ashes, and although it pains me to say it, England deserved to retain the urn. They've been the better team throughout -Perth aside- and are currently heading towatds a win in the Sydney test too. Happily, these things are cyclical, and it's England's turn to be on top for a while. Not for too long with a bit of luck.

Chin up, Skip

Staying in the southern hemisphere, a 110 year old Malay man has just got married for the 6th time to a youngster of 82. Ahmad Mohamad Isa, who has 20 grandchildren and 40 great grandchildren, showed that romance wasn't dead when he said   
“It doesn’t matter who she is, as long as she can cook for me.”

"Huh, what?"

Ronaldinho might be joining Blackburn. Yes, that Ronaldinho and that Blackburn. I can't say I've ever been jealous of BRFC before, but if this happens........... Come on Bill, sell a few more tickets to one of your shows, find a few quid and sign him. Yes, I know he's not what he was, and that he's a bit fat, but if you ever wanted a signing to raise the profile of the's a minimal risk. Even if he does bear a striking resemblence to Donkey from Shrek.


And finally a sad farewell to British actor Pete Postlethwaite, most famous -to me at least- as Mr Kobayashi from the Usual Suspects, he was once described by Steven Spielberg as the best actor in the world. For what it's worth, I agree.

RIP Pete

Love doesn't matter as long as the woman can cook.
