On the 18th April 2006, I placed an order for two crucial parts of kit in preparation for The Big Adventure: this rucksack and this sleeping bag. As of this morning they had yet to arrive, cue a series of phone calls to Millets customer service department to see if I could get them in time for the beginning of (what I have been referring to as) the expedition.
After a stressful few hours the problem was resolved and I'll be picking up my precious goods tomorrow morning.
You'll all be glad to know that an ex-Fox News anchor has been named as Bush's press secretary and if I hear anyone say that Fox News is a mouthpiece for the GOP I'll get you in a headlock and as I strangle you slowly I'll tell you that Iran has no right to develop nuclear power because I SAY SO!
Speaking of Iran, (this is brilliant...but in a bad way and thanks to Cheeks for the heads up) if I were to tell you that despite signing the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, a country is opening a uranium-enrichment centre capable of developing the raw fuel for nuclear weapons, you'd be thinking: GODDAMN IT! LET'S GO KICK SOME ASS! And if I told you that although this nation claims that it can not and never will use its nuclear programme for non-peaceful activities, it is still keeping key elements of its enrichment facility hidden from international inspectors, you'd be thinking why aren't Bush and his pals wading in until they are neck deep in dead children?
Well, I'll tell you why, it's because the country in question is called Brazil.
Anyone want to shoot up on hypocrisy with me?
