The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

It’s The “Kitchen Sink” Post …

So it’s almost Easter and because …

[1] I’m travelling
[2] my fucking laptop has decided to die on me. AGAIN
[3] I need to get a load of stuff finished before Friday
[4] I’m going to be pulled from geographic pillar to geographic post for the next week
[5] I’m soooooooooooooooooo religious [well I am when it relates to choccie eating]

… this is going to be my last blogpost till mid-next week.

Now because I know you need your daily dose of timewasting, I thought I’d write a long blog post covering 5 times as much shit as I normally do. No need to thank me, it’s just the kinda guy I am.

First of all, for all of you doing the A[P]SOTW assignment, don’t forget it has to be in by next Wednesday …

I’ve not had many questions so either you’re all busy beavering away on your persuasive arguments or simply can’t be arsed to do it.

The other thing is ….

Well actually there is no other thing, you see I’ve just got off another bloody plane … I’m tired … I’m hungry … I’m immensly pissed off I’ve had to write this post on a hotel laptop because my bloody computer has failed FOR THE THIRD TIME IN LESS THAN 6 MONTHS [do you hear me Jonathan? What about you Bazza?] … so instead of bringing the mood down at this important religious time [ahem] I’ll just bid you all a toptastic Easter and leave you with – if you’re a small minded media or marketing person – the scariest video you’ll see since War Games. Or that Colgate thing from last Friday.

Jesus this post is shit isn’t it. Just think – it’s a few minutes of your life you’ll never get back.



So lets put you – and this post – out of its misery by saying bye and that I’ll see you next Thursday, unless [1] I’ve had a chocolate induced coma and am currently residing in hospital or [2] I’ve had a technology-frustioning heart attack and am currently tied up in ECG machines.

We’ll see, happy munching …

for people who dont know rob i should mention the rough looking fucker actually is annoyingly neat and fucking tidy which is why his “kitchen sink” post only contains 2 items where in the fucking normal world they’d be at least 40.

i guess we should be grateful for small mercies because this post bored the fuck out of me within 3 words but that could also be because ive had to endure listening to the miserable bastard go on about his fucking fucked computer for the last 5 hours without him taking a bastard breath.

my ear is bleeding, my head hurts, i have an office full of guys who look like they want to quit and theres a days work that hasnt been done because mr fucking drama queen demanded attention. if campbell was a rock star hed make van halen and their “no brown smarties” (racist fuckers) look like the most accomodating fuckers on the planet.

you lot might get away from his ranting wank for a week but think of us poor bastards. happy easter? youre having a fucking laugh aren’t you?

I don’t know why you’re complaining to me Robert, there’s no way it was one of our products that let you down.

(It wasn’t was it?)

Comment by Bazza

the cheeky bastard is calling your company a bunch of fucking cowboys baz. dont let the fucker get away with that, piss him off by giving me a load of new free stuff. thatll wipe the smarmy smile off the fuckers face. serious. when should i expect the lorry to turn up?

I think chocolate might be the perfect medicine for you Robert. I have a secret stash of “Brit” Dairy Milk (thanks to Sarah’s Mum) so pop over later and you can have one. But don’t tell Andy. 🙂

Comment by Jemma King

the moral of the fucking story is asking nicely gets you more dairy milk than bullying but only if the person doing the asking is a hot and clever babe. fucking sexism if you ask me

Again …. a post I read with time I never had 🙂

Comment by PC

If I’m “investing” time by reading this blog, I am limiting the possibilities of screwing up elsewhere. It’s the only justification I can come up with.

By same token – if we read then the author has to devote more time to writing and we are doing the world a favour.

People people… can we please join the collective hug for Marcus on the ‘Kindness’ post.
