“Kind man creates toad hats…”  Hmmm,  “kind,” not the first                                                 adjective that came into my head, to be honest.

    thanks sleeps for the info…Londoners certainly have a long standing reputation of looking out for each other in times of crisis.
    Admirable trait.

  2. justamentalpatient says :

    I would argue that it’s not just London, at least a British thing and, hopefully, a human thing.
    Canadians certainly did their bit for those stranded by the attacks on the twin towers and pentagon.

    Yey for meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    (ta, justypops)

    Well I don’t want to lower the tone and say how rubbish humans can be but I remember stories from the Bowl thing in New orleans after Katrina.

    Yes, they were desperate people but some acts carried out there were not for immediate self-preservation of themselves and their families.

    Meanwhile in chez Chow:

    H is complaining loudly about some smelly boys in her class wearing deodorant.

    It’s not the boys she’s moaning about, it’s the Lynx effect.

  6. polly says :

    Human beings are a mixed lot Sleeps. I think that’s probably the most accurate statement.

  7. polly says :

    There was no sprinkler system in the building, but apparently there weren’t even working fire alarms inty. And the one set of stairs rapidly filled with smoke.

    Absolutely terrible, may end up the RBKC has managed to kill more people than all the terrorist attacks this year combined. And utterly avoidable.

    I did say hopefully, sleeps.

    Often wonder if we can ever be a decent species, but humans are an odd bunch.

  9. polly says :

    Tim Farron resigns as Fib Dem leader and ascends straight to heaven….

  10. justamentalpatient says :


    A thread zapped on the stinson hunter FB page after someone pointed out the restrictions on publicly naming minors accused of a crime.

    Some worryingly thick people in this town.

  11. polly says :

    I notice the Guardian today has guidance on how to shop for clothes online and how to sew on a button.

  12. Sleepychow says :

    I bet there are many methods of sewing buttons. I can think of at least three straight off.

    There’s the up and under, the criss-cross, and the ………………….. oh, I was hoofing it and now you all see I’m not quite so clever.

  13. interiorbc says :

    no working fire alarms polly? oh dear gawd!

  14. polly says :

    That’s the terrible thing Inty. It would probably have been possible to evacuate most people safely, but there were no working fire alarms and they were told to stay put until it was too late.

    “Why ‘thinking like a lesbian’ can improve a woman’s chances of an orgasm”

    What if you already are a lesbian oh Daily Mail?

  16. Sleepychow says :

    Is that a guy thinking like a lesbian or a gal?

    Don’t answer that.

  17. Sleepychow says :

    In a similar tower block, run by the same people, some of the tenants have their own smoke alarms but there’s no main building ones. Stairs etc.

  18. Sleepychow says :

    “It’s not the boys she’s moaning about, it’s the Lynx effect.”

    There’s an ad campaign in there somewhere:
    “Make all the squeaky girls go ick and stay away from you. The Lynx Effect. “

  19. Sleepychow says :

    I remember when the G had an article about how to wash your hair.

    Sounds silly but it was a little informative.

    Oh, and the one about how to poo.

  20. Sleepychow says :

    Snacking research in Mancland. £40 for chatting about biscuits:

    Hmm. I wonder if it’s for Fox’s and McVities … ?

  21. xenium1 says :

    A fantastic & moving portrait of Billy Connolly just finished here. So, the Beeb can do something well… 🙂

  22. justamentalpatient says :

    Lesbians think in a certain way?

    I’d like to know how that works, ‘cos I haven’t got a fucking clue, and I am one!

  23. Sleepychow says :

    Good, Xen. Nice to hear.

    I’m off to stare at the moving wallpaper now with an icy glass of Pinot.

    W**k meeting tomorrow.
    I know boss spoke to other two ladies who are unhappy at being bossed around by 4th form girl and they are looking forward to it all being settled. Other 4 w**kers involved have not got a clue what the meeting is about but have their own ideas they want to put forward. I doubt this will happen.

    Bit strange that they haven’t questioned what the meeting’s about …

    oh well

  24. Sleepychow says :

    You obviously don’t subscribe to Lesbian Monthly which keeps all lesbians up to date on how all lesbians ought to be thinking.

    Shame on you, you not-proper lesbian.
    :huge squoink:


  25. justamentalpatient says :

    I don’t even have a copy of the Gay Agenda.

    Wouldn’t mind if I’d let my membership lapse, but the lack of aftercare these days mean it’s going to be hell when my Gaydar needs to be updated.

    *saunters off to hit on a str8 lass*

  26. interiorbc says :

    So, in pursuit of article I clicked on the Daily Mail…learned my lesson, good grief, the headlines (and sub headlines come to that)…

  27. Tybo says :

    sewing on buttons has to be done widdershins, from the top left hole, with no diagonals or else they soon fall off due to the thread curse of Gwyneth Ap Paltrow

    To be honest, Sleeps, I thought everyone knew that.

  28. justamentalpatient says :

    Oh, inty. You poor thing. Never, ever, click on the Mail without grinding your lions.

    Or summat.

  29. interiorbc says :

    never again justa…my eyes hurt after that, lol.
