In big news, the head of the EU Commission threatened to throw a chair at Steve Ballmer, and Microsoft has thus capitulated to the terms of their settlement, which I suggested some years ago. I want my cut.
I think, without being too facetious, that the best way to cure obesity is to have another world war. I can hear them now: "No more chocolate milk with your lunch, dahling. Don't you know there's a war on?"
"Dan Whatsit and his preposterously awful Leonardo book are actually relevant to our theme. I usually last longer with any best-selling novel, however pathetic, than I did with his. But in his case I knew from the very first word that this was a writer of absolutely zero interest, insight, wit, understanding or ability. A blunderer of monumental incompetence. The first word, can you credit it, is 'renowned'. 'Renowned symbologist Henry Titfeather '.' or something equally drivelling, that's how this dreadful book opens. How do you begin to explain to someone that you just don't start a fictional story by telling your readers that your character is 'renowned'? You show it, you don't tell it." – Stephen Fry
New York – Harry Potter fans, the rumours are true: Albus Dumbledore, master wizard and Headmaster of Hogwarts, is gay.
JK Rowling, author of the mega-selling fantasy series that ended last summer, outed the beloved character on Friday night while appearing before a full house at Carnegie Hall.
Apparently, studies have shown that cough medicine is ineffective in children, and in some cases harmful. I'm sure that those cases would be the self-medicating kind. I remember when my brother self-medicated with a red-coloured cough mixture which he referred to as "red Coke".
Hang on … that was box wine, it wasn't cough mixture …
I digress. I think it's a good thing to give children alcohol. It helps them sleep better, and if you're that kind of person, it's also a good marinade.
Apparently there's some big match tonight. Meanwhile, my husband and I will be watching High School Musical 2, which I taped last night.
Good luck to the rugby players, and no flak from the supporters please – I'm not a fan.
An artist called Cosimo Cavallaro, who happens to have a picture of a burning piano on his home page (just to put things in context), is causing a lot of consternation regarding a chocolate sculpture of Jesus in the buff.
I had a look at the picture, and I'd say artistically speaking, it's not that great. The statue of David is much better. And also naked.
I wonder if this is not just a way to get people to look at naked statues?
My i-mate K-JAM's touch-screen died about two weeks ago. I am busy transferring everything back to my P900, which fortunately I didn't get rid of last year, so that I can send the K-JAM in for repairs. Hopefully it's nothing serious, because I actually like the K-JAM.
