The balon d’or, complete farce as always. Mahrez above Aguero and Sterling, and Lewandowski only at 8, when he should be in the top 3 with Messi and Van Dijk.

Micro$oft does that as well. How hard is it to give you a UK English dictionary? Given that you can get them for Arapahoe, Tok Pisin and Scottish Gaelic.

Baubles. I bought a shed load of them, but they don't come pre-stringed ffs. I can't tell you how tedious it is. It's my first time doing a tree - my mum said it looks like something Brucie would've had the contestants do on The Generation Game with a time limit. I thought it'd be a masterpiece, just had no idea how much time people invested in such things.

I had an unpleasant experience in 1965 at Nursery School, York Road, Guildford. They were simpler times and meals were less exotic than today's offerings. At lunch, instead of mashed potato, we were given mashed swede. I thought the orangey dome of lukewarm veg looked a pleasant variation on the usual grey, lumpy spud but my taste buds weren't prepared for the over powering zing from the devil's favourite root vegetable.

Haven't touched one since. The vegetable, not the people.

I love swede. Mash it up with loads of butter and some white pepper, job done. Also the cooking juice is good for your gravy.

It does annoy me when some of the contestants on Pointless laugh in self piteous horror at the questions they’re being asked.

Some couples do this at the start of every single round. What did they expect on a quiz show, questions about their own life?

Just got a new iPad Air and encountered this stupid keyboard thing where half the words I type have numbers in them. It’s something to do with the keyboard which is supposed to make selecting n7mbers quicker. Trouble is I can’t type a fuffing sentence without having to edit out the numbers. I can5 even work out why it somet8mes presents a number and sometimes a letter.

If anyone knows how to get rid of i5 please shou5 because it’s driving me fuffing crazy.

on the newer iOS versions you can type numbers by sliding downward on the keys with your fingers. Do you have slippery fingers?

Brussel Sprouts.

Vile beyond belief. Whoever thought these things were actually edible???

To cook properly for Christmas, they should be put on to boil on Dec 1st. Remove from heat Christmas Eve and transfer directly to the bin.

I'm on the side of your nemesis I'm afraid.

I had to change for a south-west train today at Clapham but they're currently striking. Admittedly, it was a squeeze and I did have to really thrust myself into place; but once everyone was settled and the doors had closed and everyone was braced against the final leg into London, I happened to notice the bloke in front me was holding a smart phone at arms length. Now I'm sorry, but he could've made a bit more effort and brought his arm in a bit and foregone scrolling through whatever crap he was looking at for 10 minutes. If there was any sense of entitlement it was his, and all the other bodies belonging to the usual complacent faces you see on trains when you've newly boarded.

And don't get me started about (young) women's behaviour on trains. Talk about self-importance! If they're not sitting on the gang-side rather than by the window to put people off sitting next to them - the delicate darlings - they're leaving their bags on the other seat. The internet's given them a princess complex.

It's the same on the buses. We only have one entrance/exit, not two, so everyone crams themselves in as though the only way to survive the journey is to be within six inches of the driver so people cant get on or off but the back of the bus has no one standing in it

Indeed you have it easy in that respect.
My main bugbear with this guy was his inconsiderate "me me me" attitude. and whilst I too get annoyed by people not moving down the carriage, this was not one of those occasions. It was rush hour, there's a train every 60 seconds FFS and he could have walked 5 minutes to his station anyway.

I mean what is he going to say? “Brendan Rogers is having a crisis of confidence that will see them plummet to League Two and recklessly spend so much money that they end up in administration.”

Pointless statement and pointless news story.

So unlike SSN

My main bugbear with this guy was his inconsiderate "me me me" attitude. and whilst I too get annoyed by people not moving down the carriage, this was not one of those occasions. It was rush hour, there's a train every 60 seconds FFS and he could have walked 5 minutes to his station anyway.

Are you sure he wasn't coming from a connecting station?

I'll add a really annoying story using the metro...

Maybe a year or so ago, I waited about 4 trains to squeeze on to a carriage. Just coming into a station about two stop later there was the kind of shuffling that suggested people were looking to get off. At the station, I popped out the door to let those behind me out. No one got out - and two or three people pushed past me and stole my space.

As I tried to squueze back in, people started shouting about there being a pregnant womn in there - the shouters included Ms Shuffly Falso for the door, and Mr Pushy from the platform.

Needless to say I lost the plot and went fecking ballistic with loads of CSMs.

Never again will I move out the way like that...if you cant beat the herd, best to join them.

Now that was annoying.

More and more American terms are infecting English speakers here.

'Take out' instead of 'Take Away' (my Dad now says this and I pedantically do not accept it from him)
'Play Date' instead of just a kid going around someone's house
'Can I get'' instead of 'can I have'
'I was sick' instead of 'I was ill' - being sick is the act of vomiting not lying in bed with a cold.

You wait, it won't be long until we will be celebrating Thanksgiving, it is starting to be pumped into our consciousness in this country.

Where do you think Black Friday's came from.

Always thought The UK is missing a trick with not having Thanksgiving... it's not even a religious holiday. Only commercial problem that it is not a gift giving holiday (which makes it so palatable to me, but maybe not commerce), so that might explain the omission from The UK calendar.

Next up, 4th July - Independence Day... Brexit Day in the future maybe?

It's happening again... Service person coming (allegedly) between 7am and 9am this morning per their email.

It's now 10:25am and no sign, no messages, no phone calls... I had bloody plans this morning, which are now shot to hell. Wankers.
