So it has been brought to my attention by myself that today marks this blog's first birthday. Not sure it's worth celebrating too much, as the blog has generally been rubbish, although there have been a few decent posts, and there was one time when a post tickled the internet's fancy which was nice.

I'm good, how are you?

Watered down

TimT has alerted me to the bizarre fact that if you have a "blogspot"-hosted blog you probably have a creepy eschatological Christian "blogpot" mirror. For example.

Speaking of the end times, tomorrow is election day. I'm not going to editorialise other than to say that on tv tonight I saw Abbott in a bar ordering "a shandy of light with about sixty percent lemonade."
