Re: TINGE to CHANGE

There’s good reason to vote Green in the East of England. We were only 1% of a seat last time. I’ve spent the day leafleting and canvassing - and it was a good day! Lots of positive feedback. I couldn’t bring myself to vote Lib Dem. They paint themselves as the pro-Europe choice, but they’re only d...

I’m just having a couple of swift Timothy Taylor’s in the pub opposite the Prof’s office. She’s clearing her desk....no she’s not got the sack. It’s just her office is so full of clutter she can’t get in through the door.

Re: TINGE to CHANGE

I’m voting LibDems here in Oxford to keep the Tories out. If I thought the Greens stood a better chance, I’d vote for them.

Re: TINGE to CHANGE

I find the ‘the older you are the more likely you are to support Brexit’ bit interesting, as it’s not my personal experience. Most of the people I know or have talked to who are pro-Brexit are in the 55-65 age range, the late baby boomers. Most of the people older than that I’ve talked to, particul...

It’s funny... the whole Grumpy Cat meme only started in 2012 - it’s seems so much longer.
It reminded me of my last boss....similar facial features.

But I'm happy to take compliments where I can get them (they are so few and far between these days).

Retired Oxford dons? I could go for that. A little role play, JRR Tolkien and the Elf Queen, C.S. Lewis and the metaphorical lion, Charles Dodgson and the pre-pubescent girl.

Oh, that went dark quickly.

@Rocky, are they gentleman dons, or lady dons in your case?
Gentleman dons........

Re: Meanwhile...

According to the automated call I've just on my home phone line, apparently BT is going to cut off my broadband in the next 24 hours due to hacking activity on my IP address... Would it spoil the scam to point out that BT doesn't supply our broadband? My mum has just had a call from 'HMRC' saying t...

Re: Meanwhile...

How’s Gravel’s tour of foreign A&E departments going? Ha ha ha!! Fingers crossed he's not visited too many at the moment. He's somewhere in the Austrian alps taking a day off and enjoying a mountain spa. Bloody snowflakes.....they really don't know anything about the hardships of tours. When I thin...

Re: Meanwhile...

I had a telephone consultation. The GP won't prescribe any antibiotics 'at this time' - she wants to see if it'll clear up without them. I am tempted to use Jon's Dremel to relieve the pressure in my sinuses... Go to the dentist.......it seems their threshold for prescribing is a tad lower. Bloody ...
