Hello again iiwiiers
More Mr. Men shortly, you'll be glad to hear. But gosh, it's late. And I'm tired. I don't know where the time went. I'm tired last night, not now. I was tired when I wrote it. But you know all that. Anyway, Anne's coming to stay today until Wednesday, so if there's any interruption to the service that's why although I won't have a proper excuse. So, on with the Mr. Men. I was in Aldi today and I was at the checkout and I saw some Mr. Men. On the box of a chocolate egg. Mr. Men and Little Misses. I only recogised one. It was the ubiquitous Mr. Tickle. The orange Mr. Tickle, of the orange lolly. The first Mr. Man. But anyway, let's get on with the research.
As you recall, the first ten were orange, pink, yellow, green, blue, blue, white, pink, orange, yellow. Two each of orange, pink, yellow and blue and one each of green and white. I didn't mention that I'm including all purples in 'pink'. Now, the next ten are pink, red, blue, blue, pink, red, pink, green, blue, pink. A very different ten to yesterday. Four pink, three blue, two red and a green. There were no reds at all in the first ten, and there were two each of orange and yellow, which were nowhere to be seen in this ten. The green was nearly yellow, but it wasn't yellow. I'm not going to do a running total for the first twenty, that would be silly, I've no reason to believe that that data would be useful, have I?
A former police inspector has been jailed for dumping 175,000 tyres. What a silly thing to do. Presumably there was money in it, but it seems like a lot of hassle. Better not to bother, surely? His defence asked them not to jail him as he's in the middle of sitting his lawyer exams. "He has already paid a significant price in relation to these matters and the associated benefit deception. He's lost his good character and his reputation." Ahh diddums. How about "he's already suffered enough as everyone knows he'
Image via Wikipedias an idiot, and will be wondering exactly why he decided to become a lawyer". That would have been more like it, but still, no win. I always take a dim view of that sort of thing, like if the pope murdered a few hundred babies and his lawyer said "you should probably let him off, he's suffered enough, it's very embarassing for him, what with him being pope and all that" I'd take a dim view of that.
Speaking of the pope, the evil Tony Blair, while recruiting for his death cult in a gay mag, said that the Catholic church should rethink its attitude to homosexuality. Good for him, whatever his reasons for saying it in that context. I'd like religion to disappear right this second and all the religious people to stop being religious, but that's not going to happen so I'm happy if any of them that are bigoted become less bigoted. Less good news if you're a gay woman, however, as if Tony Blair has any problem with the Catholic church I don't think he's ever mentioned it. Perhaps when he goes recruiting in a women's mag.
that's all from me for now
see you around
