You had me at suicidal, demon-possesed, cliff-jumping pigs

In other news…

…Randy Bumgardner (who is a real person) has a blog and a photo courtesy of the US State Department. It makes you wonder how many other names Mr and Mrs Bumgardner discussed before they decided that Randy had a nice ring to it. Also, when Heinrich and Gretchen Baumgartner arrived at Ellis Island all those years ago and were told that it was Bumgardner or nothing, how long did it take them to decide not to get back on the boat ?

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même jambon…

So, a couple of weeks a go one of the guys on my team at work starts complaining that his other half keeps making him ham and mustard sandwiches for lunch…every day…same thing…and he’s not getting a lot of sympathy from the guys who make or buy their own lunch and rightly so. I mean, his other half works too and she’s taking time out each night or morning or whatever to make him lunch. Anyway, a week later and no change at which point opinion start’s to come around. He should drop some hints about fancying something diffferent. But, he doesn’t want to hurt her feelings and it sounds like her feelings are easily hurt so…dilemma. The third week rolls around and now there is a general consensus that something has to be said. So over the weekend he finally dropped some hints. Now I don’t know if her feelings were hurt or not but he arrived at work this morning with a ham and mustard baguette.

Essex Wildlife…carpeting the A12 one fox at a time

I am continually amazed by the sheer volume of roadkill on the A12 between the M25 and Colchester. Some days I think I could walk the entire route without ever stepping on tarmac…just hopping from carcass to carcass. I’d need a good pair of wellies obviously 🙂
