Utterly Pointless Lists!

We all make lists don't we? Things to do, shopping, things to buy and so on and so on. But be honest how many pointless lists do we all make? There seems to be a huge increase on British TV of the 'Top 100 TV Adverts' or 'The Top 100 All time Great Love Songs, Movie Moments, the number of top 100's is a whole endless list in itself. So in this evening's moment of boredom I decided to start composing my own utterly pointless lists, it'll fill up a space in the sidebar if nothing else! I really can't be bothered to list 100 of anything so I think I'll stick to top 10's. So in the true spirit of the season here's my first (of no doubt many) Top 10's.

My Top 10 Worse Possible Xmas Presents

1. Anything bought 'In 10 easy instalments' from a newspaper or newspaper colour supplement. (For that matter, anything bought from a newspaper or newspaper Sunday Supplement)

2. Collectables. (With the possible exception of Star Wars or Bad Taste Bears)

3. Tea Towel

4. Fake designer labels, (smell-a-like perfumes, fake designer watches etc)

5. A Celine Dion CD

6. An England Rugby shirt

7. A Self Help Book/CD/DVD

8. Anything that smells of Magnolia, Rose, Sandalwood or Lily Of The Valley

9. A Calendar with picture of cute fluffy kittens/puppies/ponies etc etc.

10. Real Fur

Decades of easy peace may go their way and tide, and time may drift us far apart but you who have shared our savage yesterday will hold the highest places in our heart

And whilst I'm on the whole war thing, I found this. I know it's a member of my family but I found it in a box of old photo's and there's no one left alive who might know who it was. I thought it was a good pic though, and worth sharing.

So... following the whole coffee and keyboard incident one of my speakers decided to give up as well, although in true style the day the nice man came out to fix it the speaker sprang back to life. He fitted a new one anyway, just in case. So this is what a Mac looks like on the inside - scary, and very dusty!

The inability to get more than twenty hours sleep in a day

Staying with the same human for more than six weeks

A condition only observed in other creatures

Canned food with wings but no can

A tiny vicious dragon

A large hairy overgrown flea

That annoying time inbetween naps

Something which must be taken at 30-minute intervals

A feeling one can only truly have for oneself

A possible portal to utopia which must be explored and guarded

An activity carried out by mankind to maintain catkind in comfort

No known definition.
