Toilet Humour

Toilet Humour. Sometimes its hard to repress the child in me who likes fart jokes and giggles stupidly at the merest hint of a woman's breasts. That child was amused for ages with this site that tells you what you...

Matrices

The Matrix was an excellent Hollywood blockbuster and I have to say I really enjoyed it despite some of the bashing it got from the more "art culture" type critics. Along with a few others, I'm quite looking forward to...

I want to work with animals and promote world peace

Beauties with a conscience have tried to prevent the terrible sentence imposed on a Nigerian woman found guilty of sex outside of wedlock. Amina Lawal was first sentenced in March for having sex out of wedlock - a ruling since...

He don't not talk proper

I like my English to be written correctly. Spoken English can be, and usually is, a lot less formal and I am as guilty as most of all the usual bad usage. I was brought up to believe English should...

Svelte Knickers

Don't ask. OK, its Sharon's punk rock band name. From Davezilla's site. I know these things are 10 a penny now but the phrase "svelte knickers" had me giggling for ages....

Bugger!

I've just found out from the Benefits Agency that, despite being told I should sign on in order to receive Jobseekers Allowance, the Jobseekers Allowance I would be entitled to is precisely 0. Because I am making some attempt to...

100 things.I married my first ever serious girlfriend. We'd had a break from first dating to getting back together of nearly 13 years. During that time I had been married and widowed. I have 5 body piercings. Only 2 are...

Fish are our friends!

Today we took the kids to The National Sealife Centre in Birmingham (the city in the UK furthest from any coastline). Chloe loved it and I spent a good amount of time with her reading about and watching the fish....

You cannot resist the force..

No comment! OK

OK. Netcomments doesn't seem to have recovered but enetation.co.uk seems to be back up and running OK. Fingers crossed that it stays that way for more than a couple of hours which seem to have been my lot of late....

Comments

What is it with me and commenting systems. Am I just jinxed or what? No sooner than I change my commenting system to netcomments.co.uk than the service goes belly up. At least its not significantly affecting the load time on...

Monday Mission 2.34

From PromoGuy.net. 1. What do you do to make things better when you feel sad and/or lonely? Ignore the world until it goes away. I used to vegetate in front of the TV but now I tend to drift aimlessly...

Today was a good day....

Despite having less than 3 hours sleep last night, this weekend has been a good weekend. Yesterday I caught up on some admin for the disco. Last night's wedding disco went quite well. I tend to judge how good a...

Diamond Geezer!

Every once in a while comes a new "in-memoriam" tribute that blasts its way straight through the usual morbid weirdness into the realms of something that actually seems quite fitting. Lifegem created diamonds strikes me as one of these ideas....

All your Zilla are belong to us!

To continue the zilliness even further, how to "Zilla"-fy any website. Try replacing "http://aardvarkdj.blogspot.com/" with your own URL for much hilarity. Link found at http://www.davezilla.com/ (where else?)....

Toast.

This link made more sense under the old sub-title for this blog ("probably as boring as toast"). This guy's toast is anything but boring....

Comments.

OK, this morning I removed and then changed the commenting system. Comments courtesy of Enetation.co.uk were seriously slowing down the load time of the page. By a factor of 100s. When I removed them the page started loading almost instantaneously....

Sponging off society.

I finally went down to the Job Centre today and signed on to receive my crappy "Contribution-based" Jobseekers allowance. I get a total of 53 to support a family of 5. If I quit trying to be self sufficient and...

How zilla is that?

Regulars may have noticed the name change from "aardvark.dj". If you read a few blogs then you probably already know what's happening over at davezilla.com. Davezilla received a letter from solicitors representing the owners of Godzilla (tm) demanding that he...

In my minds blog............... For

For every blog entry that I get around to typing out and "publishing" there are probably 4 or 5 that I have thought out in their entirety whilst away from my PC. Unfortunately I have the memory of a retarded...

The un-named two word thingy

Catchy title ain't it? Courtesy of bears-cave.com. I promised myself that I wasn't going to fill my blog up with other peoples quizzes and crappy "What kind of cute pussy are you?" tests. The Monday Mission is an exception because...

Desire

I want one of these. The HP Jornada 928 is the latest and, from what I can see, the best in the emerging market for combined PDA/phone gadgets. Currently only available through Vodafone, I'm kinda hoping that Orange pick it...

Envy.

Do you have a weblog? If so, why did you start it. Me; I started it for the chicks. I thought good looking, partially clad women would be throwing themselves at my feet. OK, actually I thought nothing of the...

Monday Mission 2.33

From PromoGuy.net 1. Many children have blankets, or a favorite nubby stuffed animal that they like to keep near them for security. Do you recall what you had for your "security blanket" as a child? When did you finally give...

Brasseye

For the last fortnight the UK has been gripped by the story of 2 missing 10 year old girls. First let me state that I feel the same way about this story as almost every other person in the country....

This used to be my playground......

My old high school now looks like this: Image shamelessly stolen from www.expressandstar.com our excellent regional newspaper....

Just another brick in the wall

My old high school burnt down last night. The adult in me recognises the damage and disruption this will cause, especially as today was the day that the 18 year olds were supposed to have picked up their A level...

Asta la Siesta Baby!

Just took a huuuuuuge nap with Connor lying on my chest. How nice is that! There is something incredibly comforting and relaxing about having a baby lying on your chest. I'm a great believer in the Siesta anyway. I think...

Yes, I'm ecstatic!

Having a baby is one of the most fulfilling, rewarding and, above all, happy times of our life. At least, that's what everyone else thinks you should be going through. In reality whilst it is fulfilling and rewarding, I can't...

The Game (I lost!).

Okay, I'm gonna tell you about 'The Game'. I have no idea where or when this started. I found out about it online about 6 months ago. I'd quite like to know the origins of 'The Game' because it is...

How nervous am I?

Ok, so this shouldn't be anything to stress about, but for the first time since Connor was born Sharon has gone out and left me "holding the baby". She's just gone shopping for an hour because she needs a break...

The Rules

Over the last few weeks I have been inundated with "Rules for Men" written by women. So here to redress the balance is a set of "Rules for Women". Yes, I know this is "weak content" and the chances are...

Grrr!

I've not been able to get Blogger to post or publish what I wrote properly for at least a couple of hours. And suddenly I had 5 copies of the last entry. Oh well. I suppose you can't complain too...

They stole my brain!

I can't explain why, but I've had real trouble concentrating on anything for the last few days. It feels like trying to think through cotton wool. Minutes drift by into hours and still I've got nothing achieved. Sharon's starting to...

I want to be Neo!

After reading the article on whether we are living in a computer simulation, I decided to look up the author Nick Bostrom on the Net. I found a whole website he wrote about his paper over at http://www.simulation-argument.com/. It is...

Wetting the baby's head

Last night I finally got chance to go out with a few friends and celebrate Connor's arrival in the style traditional for new fathers. I had fully intended to just have a few drinks and be back by 10.30pm. Instead...

Monday Mission 2.31

Courtesy, as usual, of PromoGuy.net. 1. Ever considered just deleting your Blog and not doing it anymore? What prompted that and what stopped you? Nope. Not yet. I've had a couple of days when I was to knackered / blue...

The Matrix was a documentary

I read New Scientist this week and was amazed to read an article about a respected Yale University philosopher who reckons we could all be part of a giant simulation being run on a computer in what we think of...

A man of leisure

For someone with no full time occupation I seem to have precious little time. Looking after a newborn is an incredibly all consuming activity. Connor seems to sleep all day but won't settle at night leaving Sharon and I worn...
