Pump It Or Bump It   Leave a comment

Of all the Advent themed marketing ploys I have been spammed with this season, this is the one that makes me giggle most:

 

Pump It Or Bump It Original

Hummers Galore   Leave a comment

This made me laugh so abruptly it made me spit a hot, milky liquid out (grow up…I was having tea).  Good eye on the jHavelina HHH harriette that spotted this:

hummers galore

DT #308, 4 November 2014 (Jacob’s Creek Shiraz Cabernet)   Leave a comment

Jacob's Creek Shiraz Cabernet

Like being back in Athens, GA: a bottle of wine, a foreign Sunday paper half read, a box of Goody’s, and Car Talk blaring on the radio

 

“Our Humility”
Say Tom and Ray Magliozzi
“Is what makes us great.”

Name: Jacob’s Creek Shiraz Cabernet
Type: red wine
Venue: house

Review/notes: Off early to get stitches removed I picked up the bottles on the way home from the GP.  The lurgy lingers, so I didn’t run back to the house and, instead, thought about our dear, departed Tappet brother and all his lunacy.  Arriving home, I downloaded the most recent episode of Car Talk (they stopped making new ones in 2012, but continue to put old episodes on each week, such is their popularity).  The topics ranged from nose picking to the merits of buying a limousine to replacing a clutch unsuccessfully and what noise cancelling methods can disguise your shoddy work (hint: get a louder stereo).  One woman wanted to, rather than go in to get a repair redone, try a more ‘holistic’ approach; “oh, you want a pressure point…take your finger and poke it in the mechanic’s chest while chanting ‘I’m not paying for this twice.'”

Next week, Ray is putting out his personal favourite clips…I’m looking forward to ‘The Best of Tommy.’ Oh, the haiku fit the format better but I really tried to fit the great man’s personal motto in: Non Impediti Ratione Cogitationis.

Swindon and Community Policing   Leave a comment

Swindon DIY policing

The Big Society — the idea that everyone should pitch in to do the things, like library work and teaching adult literacy, that we used to depend on competent professionals to do –seems to have creeped into law enforcement and crime investigations.  As a victim, please retrieve one of the conveniently distributed Evidence Bags and deposit blood samples and any shards of glass or other pieces of makeshift weaponry you can find.  Bring this to the Magistrate’s Court and wait patiently to register your items before continuing on to A&E down the hospital.  Thank you for helping Swindon and Britain become better places to live for everyone.

Debowe Mocne

While advice is free,
You might consider leaving
A pie un-eaten.

Name: Dębowe Mocne
Type: pilsner
Venue: walking up Eastcott Hill, Swindon

Review/notes: Delicious and £1.39 at the Brunel Newstand, ice-cold on a sunny and warm afternoon.  What’s not to like?  Well, I’ll tell you what: some fat cow tutted as I walked by enjoying my harmless bevvie.  I mumbled, “hmmm?” while arching an eyebrow her way and lowering the bottle from my lips.  “You lot will never assimilate, drinking in public in the middle of the day, ” she explained.  “Madam, I’m on my holiday and I am not going to apologise for having a legal drink.”  “Oh,” she choked out, “I didn’t realise you were an American,” admitting a prejudice aimed at Poles that I already suspected.  “That’s alright, love.  I’ll just let you get back to your Gregg’s sausage roll.”  A few steps away she laughed and said, “I don’t have any sausage rolls.”  “Perhaps,” I shouted back, turning to walk backwards and still uphill, “but I’m sure you will, soon.”

Two Weeks As The Voice of Swindon on Twitter!   2 comments

denis of swindon icon

There is a Twitter project called “People of Swindon” that gives control of their account to a new local tweeter for one week every week.  They were recruiting new voices and I applied as I am going to be mostly anchored in Swindon for the next couple of weeks (burning off residual vacation time before the end-of-month deadline).

Yeah, we want people from Swindon to talk up the town...just not YOU.

Yeah, we want people from Swindon to talk up the town…just not YOU.

By way of a vetting process, they must have read my Twitter account or this blog because they never even bothered to reply to my email, despite giving some previous “[name] of Swindon” tweeters a second go.

No matter…for those of you that enjoy Twitter (and who doesn’t?), I shall do the job in spite of their misgivings starting when I leave work Friday (12 September 2014).  Do tune in.

Dead Letter Office Shiraz

Over in Gorse Hill
They’re doing it Doggie Style.
And, for all to see.

Name: Dead Letter Office Shiraz
Type: red wine
Venue: house

Review/notes: Remarkable wine.  On clearance at Co-op, but actually worth the full price.

We were out on Cricklade today and I spotted a pet grooming shop that cracked me up.
