Workshy bastards both

The reason I've got this bloggy thing, is that

1. I've been meaning to get one for ages

2. I'm kind of getting one at work, but won't be able to use rude words. Bumhole Pissflaps Funt.

3. My housemate got one and is being blatantly funnier than I am.

Now, I don't mind him being funnier than me that much. Really. It's just sort of... raised the bar a wee bit. And I do love a challenge. There's also the matter of our differing writing styles - I'm slightly drier than him, and tend towards the conversational in tone. He tends towards grandstanding.

At some point, of course, we'll actually get the joint blog we've been talking about. But until then pointless competition over post counts and jokes about sexy parties will have to suffice...

Anyhoo, go check out his blog. And I can only presume that the title comes from the noise when his head (pictured on his banner) exploded. Kind of... how would you describe it?

Kind of a Poof sort of a noise.

I am not alone

I'm very upset to discover I'm no longer the only Kim Plowright in the world. There's one on a school rounders team in Godalming and one who is a parent who helps out at an Australian children's sport centre.

Worse than this, one of them beats me on Google.

Although nice to see that my husband's dedication is still there.

My spelling is Wobbly. It's good spelling but it Wobbles, and the letters get in the wrong places.

Oh, just thought of something I should mention.

My spelling is not very good.

It's not that I'm illiterate, it's just... I wobble. And my head goes faster than my fingers.

Please bear with me.

Oh, and the link above will let you own for yourself the closest thing to a holy book I have.

Not in that dress...

Oh look, a second post.

Now, usually I skip straight through Atom Film's newsletter. Something about all that heavy HTML and branding makes me go 'big commercial dull dull dull'. Strange how I believe plain text emails more than something with professional polish.

But I digress. Something caught my eye for once - it's a superhero cartoon. With Drag Queens.

It's a great, great concept - not quite carried off as well as it could have been. It's a bit slow, and clunky, but imagine this with the writing team behind Will and Grace working on it, with script editing by Jonathan Harvey. It would take the world by storm, and have more jokes about wigs.

Having said that, the bitching at the narrator is cute. break those conventions, girlfriend...

So here you go. A blog. For me. Finally. Hopefully this will stop me sending so many emails to our departmental junk list.

And here's the first thing. Stove Burners. They're beautiful.

Welcome to
