26.4.08 | Dammit Humphrey!



I'm starting to feel old. I may not look it, but as a very famous hobbit once put it, i feel like butter that's been spread over too much bread.

And now an ageing legend of British wit and comedy adds to my obituaries and grievances of this year. A gentleman, a sharp mind and a fine musician.

how on earth will Da Pumpy and i listen to BBC Radio 4 and laugh and grimace with much fondness at the innuendo's, so cherished in England, now?

I'm Sorry i Haven't A Clue was one of those "Quiz Shows" that laughed and ridiculed itself and every other quiz show with pretensions of greatness. And it's pesenter, Mr Humphrey Littleton was it's genius centre.

I'm so sad. What a truly horrible week. This country seems that much less bearable to live in now... a country where the politicians have forgotten one truly vital thing... that they were created to serve the public. not themselves and not their political parties, and certainly not their rich big business friends.

Still, it doesn't matter in due course. Our way of life is beyond saving. We probably have 20 years tops... and everything changes in 2014... for better or worse.

I concur, as a recent victim of the 10% income tax cuts I was slightly horrified to see that I brought out £20 less this month in my pay, despite my 'astounding' payrise of 1.7% this month.

As neither a pensioner or a single person (married, student, no kids, pay for every bloody thing) I now have to apply for tax credits to regain the theft. I've never claimed owt in my life. I won't qualify anyway because I'm married to a 'proper' tax payer. Facking government wankers.

I'll just have to curb me dress buying tendancies some more.

Grey nation indeed.

What happens in 2014 ? I mean I know Brazil are hosting the World Cup but that seems unlikely to change everything.

I'm utterly lost. But I can pencil you in if you need something prior to 2014.

Funny. I actually quoted Mr. Baggins myself recently. I had worked all day and then gone to my salsa class all night. As I was stumbling, exhausted, from the bathroom to my warm and inviting bed, my roommate asked me how I felt. Without even thinking I muttered "like butter, spread over too much bread".

...then I whispered "my prrrrecious...." as I fell face-first into my pillow.
