    Hi Stu, I laughed out loud at this post and even more at your last post about the train ticket police. I know EXACTLY how that felt as I’ve been caught in my own mistake before as well, and they really know how to make you feel like the only liear and jerk who ever rode a train. My heartfelt sympathies, and the only consolation both you and I can have is that we aren’t the only ones!

    Take care, Val

    Thats like…the best entry you’ve ever done.

    But shame on you for forgetting Remembebrance Day…

    I think it is quite freaky that I also choked on my juice, considering my best friend in a completely different continent (Melissa!!!!) also choked on her juice. Weird.

    *Ahem* Silly English Stu, you spelled ‘from’ wrong…

    How much are you going to pay me :p

    You’re back on there. I have to sort that list out properly later on.

    By the way, do you know your template is not displaying properly in FireFox Marycub?

  12. James says:

    I don’t get it either.
