There needs to be some sort of thing going on at the bookies.

Jeremy Beadle's dead, that's a possible? Then again, children were probably shit scared of that claw...

For some reason I've taken Nicholas Owen a lot more seriously since he stopped reading from an ITN autocue and began reading from a BBC one. Same thing with Nick Robinson when he also switched from ITN to BBC.
If it sounds good, listen to it

I bumped into Nicholas Owen a few years ago, he's a steam locomotive driver on the Bluebell Railway in Sussex. Nice bloke. :yes:

Holy fucking shit, I loved that railway as a kid.

For some reason, Christmas in this household means walnuts.

They're like virgins - satisfying to crack into, but ultimately just nasty on the inside...

That Military Wives song was not only a whole year ago and making me feel all fuck-my-life about how fast time's going, I actually just listened to it for the first time now and it's not bad like. I imagine if I were a middle-aged woman I'd shed a tear.

Walnuts are fabulous! Have you tried them toasted? It gives them a whole new dimension.

I used to give my grandad those every year. He'd do the whole shaking it and going "I wonder what this is? :P" before unwrapping it. Gave it to him for the first xmas in ages this year and I sense he was a little disappointed :lol:

Never tried them myself because I'm a philistine when it comes to nuts.

Can't think of pickled walnuts without thinking of Len Goodman perving on the female dancers on Strictly.

They are a lot tastier without the skin though, that's what makes them have that bitter aftertaste :hurl:

What's more awkward than following strangers on Facebook? Trying to figure how to add someone you've never met and don't know on LinkedIn as a potential job contact. You have to pick 'friend' as how you know the person, even when you aren't, and the 'other' option asks for their email address. >.<
Who the hell reads anything in sigs these days, unless it's an animated gif?
