Planes don’t take off, it dominates the news and it’s all we hear about. Some people couldn’t even get their flights from UK airports to Heathrow. Well bloody good I say as these selfish people are clearly intent on damaging the environment with their short haul trips in which they could easily get a train for. All hail the fog I say. One woman was on our local news complaining that her plane was cancelled and she had to get a train, and then a tube. My goodness, the world is going to end…
We had a buffet delivered at work this week and a buffet was delivered. One plate of sandwiches labled ‘meat’, one plate of sandwiches labled ‘veg’. The veg ones containing such delights as prawns and tuna. In this day and age you would think people understand the simple fact that fish is flesh and vegetarians do not eat it. Are people really this thick? It has eyes ffs.
Not content with bringing out every dull reality tv programme and boring repeat upon repeat of the soaps ITV go one better with their new series ‘Extinct’. Focusing on animals which are about to become extinct (hence the title)… viewers were invited to vote on which animal they thought should be saved and get money towards ensuring their survival. Erm… how about all of them? Disgusting.
For some reason our works bran tub is called thus instead of secret Santa. No matter to these trivialities… I got a fivers worth of Toblerone for mine. Oh yes.
Wayne Rooney has narrowly avoided a serious injury to his right foot while sitting courtside at a US basketball game. He was watching the Knicks play Celtics at when ’s 6ft 6 forward Paul Pierce lunged for a loose ball and fell on Rooney’s foot. There were immediate fears Rooney had damaged the metatarsal he broke against Chelsea in April. Luckily, Rooney emerged unscathed but admitted: “it was scary. He rolled right over my foot”.
There is a programme on E4 that is a behind the scenes look at Girls Aloud. One episode showed them jetting off to to do two corporate gigs, which had three days between them. Well, most of us would love the chance to have three days free in but not these spoilt little girls. One flew home as she was so bored (!) the others seemingly did nothing else but lounge around complaining how bored them were. At an attempt to try and relieve the boredom (and stop the incessant racket of whining I suspect), their tour manager arrange an excursion to a road at the top of the city which gave lovely views all over the place. Anyone else would have loved it but not this gang of whiners “ooh it’s too far”, “my feet hurt” (well might help if you didn’t wear high heels? Just a thought). If they had been pushed off the cliff the city would have been cheering with joy.
One of the favourite topics of debate at the moment is bosses ‘banning’ Christmas for fear of upsetting people from other religions. This has been latched on by those unable of formulating their own views as a stick to bash these religions with. Nobody has said no not celebrate Christmas; it is a convenient excuse not to do anything and save some money.
Pampers are making a huge song and dance in their new advert about how they are donating money from each pack of nappies sold to charity. The massive amount of the donation they are giving per pack? 2.5p. Pathetic.
With the Take That DVD out this week why not remember one of the best bits. Cor blimey.
