Barack Obama is the 44th President of the United States of America.

I am beyond happy.

Just wish I was still blogging.

This’ll be on one of those lists soon

The Weakest Link, BBC UK version, broadcast on Thursday 15 February 2007.

Anne (bleugh) Robinson: What “h” precedes “be thy name” in the Lord’s Prayer?

Contestant: Howard.

Anne: Sorry?

Contestant: Howard.

Anne (smirking): Hallowed.

Poor Marco.

Trolley crush

Actually, it’s called Valentine Crush but I’ve been playing it solidly for an hour (and for chunks of time before that) and my eyes are playing tricks on me and the hearts now look more like men’s trolleys than anything else.

But ever generous, I had to share the pain joy, go play Valentine Crush yourselves. [Via MetaFilter Projects.]

Hang on a cotton pickin’ minute

I just spent 10 minutes or so completing a survey on current music trends (and I didn’t mention Cilla Black once!) in the vain hope of being in the draw to win an iRiver only to get to the end and realise that not once did I get asked for an email address or any means of notifying me when if I win. Harrumph.

The survey is being run by My Voice for Channel 4 Radio. The hyperlink in the publicity email that led me there does contain a long string of letters and digits, but since that was three lines long and no longer worked as a hyperlink, I used the alternative link. Maybe the identifier is in the unclickable link. Time to go cook supper then.

Yes, another one! From the wonderful Overhead in the Office’s most popular page:

Right Next to the ‘Irony’ Button

Customer, trying to use his debit card: I gotta push “English”? “Spanish” shouldn’t be an option. If they can’t speak no English, they ain’t got no business being here. Where’s the “yes” button at?

Cashier: It’s the button that says “yes” on it.

From the IMDB review of The Hunted:

They also answer that age-old question “who’d win a fight between a middle-aged ex-athlete with a few months of kendo training and a ninja who’s just lost an arm and leg”?

I am such a pudding

Pun intended.

I’ve been sat here in front of the screen, finding it hard to deal with the bitter taste of rejection. Bowled over and grateful to the Stock Xchng community for sharing an unending supply of wonderful photos for banners, designs, cd covers, I suddenly got the idea to contribute a few photos. Not that they’re particularly good but might have been useful to someone writing about baking cakes or puddings. Or eggs.
