  1. You know ,I normally never leave comments on websites, especially ones I merely stumble upon whilst looking for inspiration, or should that be cheats – yeah it should definitely be cheats, for a forthcoming essay. However, for once felt compelled to. Perhaps it was the fact that you too are a MAN U fan, fingers crossed that Ronaldo’s fit for the weekend, or perhaps it was the references to biscuits, which gave me fond memories of a rave in 1990, but more than likely it was Shawn. You see, I am writing a book, supposedly, in which one of the characters, Steve, gets caught by his mate dancing about in a pair of fishnets (small world eh!) with a hard-on that could break toffee, as we say in Scotland, but instead of Madonna it’s Joe Smooth’s Promised Land – which is, incidentally, a must have for any Spinner of fine tracks of 12″ Vinyl on Technics turntables!Anyway, probably telling my granny how to suck eggs…as we also say in Scotland!

    Keep it Celt,

    Paul AKA Big China.

  2. Mion: You’re right… I do have to update my list, among many things.

    Paul: Thanks for stopping in and for commenting. Good luck on your book, it sounds like my kinda tale! Any book with a dude wearing fishnets and rockin’ a hard on that can “break toffee” is top shelf in my opinion!! Cheers Paul!! Let me know if you get a site up, would love to read your stuff.

  3. Awesome list. You are almost exactly 3 years younger (almost as in if you were born 18 October) so you shouldn’t feel old. Actually you’re younger than my second sister but only by almost a year. 😉

    How are the little rugrats? They’d be what 4 now?

    So feel you on 41, 43, 46, 51, 56, 60 (definitely on this one only except for being a girl part – DNA dictated that one), 61, 62, 65, 67, 68. I don’t even go near 69 only because I have the most fucked up dreams that if they were analysed I’d probably be locked away with all the other sane people. Like the one I had the other day where I was walking down Wellington streets only to see a tornado hit a couple of blocks away, I got really excited because I’ve finally seen one (my one wish before I die is to see a tornado in real life – which may be how I die) but then the tornado turns into a Dalek and I got scared because I thought it’s going to destroy me but then I realised that it hasn’t fired on anyone yet and after mocking it trying to get it to shoot me I go to check it out and find that it’s nothing more than a mockup of a dalek? Yeah, analyse that.

    By all intensive purposes you’re the normal one here.
