I was having a look at some of the "Facebooks for old people" such as EOns where you have to be in the USA for some reason, and TeeBeeDee where the first captcha word given was "shag" so I reloaded and got "glastonbury" and then "moonwalk". I suspect this is another USA only site and the shag referred to is the dance. I think I'll stick with facebook - these sites seem irredeemably cloying and upbeat beyond sense. (You can friend me on facebook if you want, though do make sure that you identify yourself in some sensible way so that I know that you really a "friend". For some definition of friend that means we have never met, are never like to meet and indeed have never spoken nor do we know what each other looks like....

Explain to me why women's clothes shops are full of jeans with 36" legs but mens ranges all stop at 34". Is it to much to ask for a pair of 34/26 black jeans with a zip fly? It does seem to be at the moment. The ebay search box for leg length stops at 34. Can I buy long leg jeans in Holland perhaps?

I have gone to the attic and carefully taken out the package containing the cone of silence. I have unwrapped it, admiring the burnished copper bifurcated rivets used in its construction and, as is the tradition for this time of the year will be lowering it in to place very soon. However, I *guarantee* that if you look at some time in the next couple of weeks I will appear in every single one of these webcams : TJ's, <1Ann's Cottage0> and Seascape. Of course, the times at which I will appear are not subject to whim and weather so you'll just have to keep looking. I'll be the one carrying a bifurcated rivet.

I mentioned the Macupdate bundle the other day as not going as well as the Macheist one. Well, they did unlock all the applications, but only by fiddling their numbers - the last one is now marked 5999 but yesterday it was 9999 as far as I recall. Sounds like cheating to me.
