Night Shopping

So people shop in their Pyjamas then.

Tesco store bans shopping in pyjamas

The more I read this, and the comments that have been attributed by people, it seems that people are not taking the trouble to cover up what amounts to ‘bare minimum’ night attire.
Who would go out barefoot at this time of year, it’s not even flip flop weather?

Has somebody considered that these people are not doing it by choice? Perhaps they are sleepwalkers, shopping unconsciously.

Think about how many adverts you see for Tesco. TV, Radio, and Print…Maybe these people have been subconsciously affected into buying stuff whilst still in the land of nod.
I’ve often heard of people who get up in the middle of the night and raid the fridge or make themselves snacks.
Imagine that, sleepwalking downstairs, you feel peckish, open up the fridge. “bugger, no cheese”…pick up your wallet/purse walk out the front door, and go to Tesco… Seems feasible to me.

But it must be common place enough in this Tesco for them to put up a sign. Perhaps it’s an affliction affecting half the town. Something in the water perhaps.

Of course I’m assuming the main reason for the ban is that the people who come in are damn ugly!
What night shift or early morning staff are going to whine at the sight of a fit, woman in sexy night wear (or six pack adorned Adonis)?…Thought Not.

..This is the Real Thing

Somebody else is posing as Whizzyfingers on a site
Some site flogging touch typing books for kids.

You want to put wings on the heels of your children? Teach them to touch type.

Wings on the heels of my children ??…that would make them , er ,Freaks !

Just a pity they can’t type very well themselves as they spell whizzyfingers two different ways on their home page…
whizzyfingers & wizzyfingers ( Teach your kids to type?, what, except ‘H’)
Ha Ha… some advert.

We need talented people in this country, not Secretaries.

Don’t worry, this is the original…and I won’t try and flog you any books .

Angry Rant #2. CO2, My ar*e

Seen those adverts on TV telling us all that cars are the biggest contributor to CO2..?
Yeah, so the Government is telling us to drive 5 miles less a week…use Public Transport Etc.
So, I’ve got to get to London on 10th Feb…Car?..Well, there is traffic, parking….Oh and the Government says I should drive less..
Let’s see, Train..?

£140 !!

Please don’t forget I’m not on MP’s expenses or a Banker with a huge boner bonus!

So I’ll drive halfway there then, that’s about 120 miles I would have done less that week
if we had a decent affordable public transport system.

Tell that to the polar bears.

Roll On Summer

I am fed up with winter already. I can’t wait for summer (if what we
actually get can be described as summer !)

I am suffering due to the extreme lack of daylight
which I am trying to make up using a SAD light. It’s not the same.

I miss the warmth as well. I’m just not built for this climate. I should
live somewhere in the Mediterranean.

(There is lot of I am in this post, but yeah I’m just being selfish.)

Angry Rant #1 ..Pushy shoppers

People queing behind me at the shop checkout/sales desk….You are not going to lose you place in line if you actually leave two or three inches between my back and your shopping bags/trolley/basket !
I hate it…There I am waiting my turn patiently and the person behind you is pratically pushing you over ! I really don’t want my legs and back bashed just because you are an impatient pushy git !
Leave me a bit of room please, nobody is going to jump into a 3 inch won’t get to the checkout any quicker by assaulting me and if this carries on I will make sure I do slow you down by paying for my shopping with pennies.

Rant Over.

Up and Running…

OK, So now I’m up and running with this site. This is the first time I’ve used WordPress and it looks quite good. Now I have to experiment with the page layouts and customising it a little bit. I really want to make this main page wider, it sort of sits in the middle of the screen with a lot of ‘real estate’ spare either side.
I’ve no idea how to do that at the moment but I’m sure I’ll find out pretty quickly.
