A Number of Exciting Developments!

1) Bully Diary.

Blonde Colleague: You remember Lovely But Stupid? Remember that 'bully diary' she used to keep?

Me: Mmmmm.

Anyone reading who is curious about the Lovely But Stupid colleague I used to work with can get up-to-date with her here:

I can't be arsed trying to remember how to do a 'proper' link so make do.

As her name suggested, she wasn't the brightest and was quite often 'teased' about it - she had the idea of keeping a diary of said teasing to present to Human Resources at some unspecified point in the future and getting everyone sacked. No-one really knew if she was joking or not.

Blonde Colleague: You know she started to put it online?

Me: [Suddenly alert] What?

BC: Yeah. Some sort of blog-thing or something. Very Dry set it up for her.

Me: Mmmmm.

Someone I knew started a blog! Mostly about the place that I spend forty hours a week in! Mental!

The blog itself takes about 45 seconds in total to read, doesn't cast anyone in a good light and is here:

Difficult to believe that she is describing a professional workplace, I know. And odd that she didn't mention the incident at the Christmas party. Anyway. How mad is that?

2) Something Faintly Worthy Of Comment Is Actually Happening To Me At The Minute!

Normally I'm just a bit bored, think of something odd that happened about three months ago and tap away in the off-chance that something readable occurs.

But no! A REALLY STUPID situation has arisen, is ungoing, unresolved and a bit bizarre! Now!

And I really don't know if I should write about as I don't know in advance how it'll end - which bothers me. And it's feasible it may end with me getting my face kicked off by a man three times my size. Which will be a rubbish 'punch-line'.


3) I Make a Small Discovery!

I find a USB memory stick thing that I haven't used for ages. In it are a number of blog posts from three years ago that I never used. How exciting!

But another dilemma. I am not sure if they should ever see the light of day because:

a) Some are actually quite sad. And as everyone knows, 'sad' = 'boring'

b) Some are actually quite personal and this is 'not that sort of blog'.

c) Some will make many - myself included - fear for my mental health.

d) Some are actually a bit depressing. See a).


Anyway. I'm off for a lie down after all the 'excitement'.

Dear god, you can't dangle Something Exciting to and fro and not tell! Espcially if it does involve a possible beating. Come on... you know you want to.

Reading through Lovely But Stupid's riviting blog leaves me in no doubt. Your identity is Ange.

Hello Em.

I'd just hate to have to a 'I wonder what will happen next' post only for 'what happens next' being a visit to the dentist.

We'll see how I feel.

And I'm pleased to say I don't appear in her blog at all. I'm often accused of bullying (bizarrely - I have the intimidating physique of a paperclip) but I like to think I'm a little more sophisticated.

WTF is a hairy Fage???...and do I really need to know?...or want to...

So you've only just started to fear for your mental health?

...and I thought you were quick on the uptake...;-)

Just in case I was missing out after all these years I just said to the wifey "You've a hairy fage"

She has no idea.

That's allright then.

FD: I'm sure you can guess.

Seriously though - one in particular was the incoherent stuttering of a lunatic. I don't even remember writing it. Brrr.

Bloody hell. That was a bit like pinball.

I think therefore I am.

I blog therefore I'm mental.


Best thing to do with a 'What happened next' post is leave it for a seriously long time. Then, when you do post it, you'll create a ripple of 'Something must have happened to him, some time ago - back when his nose was part of his face, and when he had two ears', amongst your readers of the future. That would be a good ripple, albeit with the quiet undertow of hyper-violence.

'Mind how you go', I guess.

Wow! Hope all the excitement doesn't keep you awake at nights!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who was mystified by "hairy Fage". It must be something really special - it's capitalized and everything.

I agree with what Elsa Findlay said.

Also, what is wrong with getting your head kicked in as a punchline? Not that I want you to, but there's definite comic/dramatic potential.

Too much excitement. Good thing I'm already lying down. Now I'll just close my eyes for a while.

Do hurry back though. The suspense of all the excitement might be more than a lie down can remedy.

Shane: Erm. Alright Chief. And I'm sure you're right but I'll just wait to see how this pans out I think. Fairly sure I know the outcome now though.

Elsa: ?

PB: It isn't. Nothing much does at the minute to be honest. Thank fuck.

J: It's obviously a phrase peculiar to the North of England but I'm sure you can work it out.

Jay: Sure you're right - it would just be a bit of an anti-climax to something that, on reflection, isn't that interesting anyway. I'm just over-excited that something stupid is occuring NOW as opposed to me thinking about it weeks later and realising how stupid it was.

Ellie: I'm sure you'll manage.

Seriously though. No-one is interested in the Lost Posts? Are they like DVD special features that no-one can be arsed to watch? Grrr.

I won't manage without The Lost Posts (please let them be nothing like Lost ... if they are ... lose them again).

Hurry up and post. You entertain me (and others). I mean that in a good way. x

1) i cringed at the bully diary

2) hurrah! (as long as it doesn't involve painful happenings to your face)

3) i'm sure your dedicated readers are happy to take the rough with the smooth.

Ellie: Thank you. Not sure about the 'Lost Posts' but I'm about to do some tiresome 'attention seeking'.

C: Hello you.

1)The 'bully diary' is perhaps one of the funniest things I've read in some time so I am officially a 'bad person'. If you knew her you would laugh also.

2)It's not as interesting as you would have thought.

3)\I'm unsure but I'm going to find out.
