Sleeping Bag & 65 Litre Rucksack Crisis!

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?


  1. Anyone want to shoot up on hypocrisy with me?

    Interesting how you point out that self-righteousness is the real opiate of the masses, whether delivered through the "needle" of religion, Conservative politics, American "patriotism" or other "respectable" disguises for selfish comtempt.

    Fuck, you're noble.

  2. And, Brazil poses almost no threat to American hegemony. They're being shot, one at a time, in the London tube, or else otherwise populating the grisly pages of

  3. Didn't know that about Brazil developing a nuclear programme, thanks for posting it. Haven't been on your blog for a bit and suddenly there's all this stuff about going on a big adventure - sounds interesting, hope it goes well!

  4. Please don't give the U.S. one more reason to invade Latin America. We've done that. The whole puppet regime and everything. You know, Castro is probably behind this just as Saddam was connected to 9/11.

  5. Rucksack? shouldn't you carry all your worldly goods wrapped in old sacking tied to the end of a stick like a proper cartoon hobo?

  6. Why couldn't Bush have picked an easier mark to mess with like Brazil rather than going after Iraq and Iran? Maybe if Bush Sr. had picked a fight with Brazil and only half finished it, we would be knee deep in sheep and grain farmers instead of camel herders right now.

  7. Jessica, you are truly an American I would be proud to stand together with like all our nations' propaganda wishes we'd do.
