Then I could bore you senseless by talking about cars, thereby killing the thread most effectively.
Or even better, I could compare the pros and cons of long-obsolete Mac models.
I have powers of stultifying boredom you people can't begin to imagine.

Hah! Your fascination with history is a worthy weapon in the thread-killing war, but my fascinations with both botany and paleology are not to be sneezed at.

My fascination with the endless variety of pollen is to be sneezed at.

Maybe I should just use this Thread™ as my own personal blog. As absolutely nothing of interest ever happens to me - something I share in common with the vast majority of bloggers - I suspect that you'd all get bored very soon.

How about we try to solve Pi to an infinite number of decimal places?

In simplest terms, conventional lifting surfaces on an aircraft operate via suction. Air passing over the curved upper portion is accellerated to a speed faster than air passing under the flat lower portion, thus creating an upward vacuum and thereby, lift.

I can bore you to death with child-raising tips and breathing instructions for barbershop singing, recipes for healthy food, and my idea of the best way of teaching kids fractions.
Ha! I bet you'll leave this thread alone if I did that.

Tuesday 1st August, 2006

Well, I've finally decided to start my own blog on this little group of networked computers collectively known as the internet. Now, I realise that the vast majority of blogs are full of inane rubbish - I mean, come on, who's actually interested in what I had for dinner this evening? - but I suspect that my posts won't be very long if I don't mention all the little, uninteresting aspects of my life. Feel free to email me if you have any comments, but don't reply, as I'm far too lazy to actually read the comments section. So, without further ado, welcome to my life. In the words of any number of trashy works of fiction...

DEAR DIARY,


I actually didn't do a huge amount today.
Now, I know what you're thinking - lazy student on holiday and all that - but it's unfortunately true.

I woke up at 10:27, which, thinking about it, is actually fairly late, though I still felt like I hadn't had much sleep. Breakfast, shower and dressing followed, and then I was ready to fritter away the time remaining before lunch. Which wasn't much, because I'm good at taking ages to get ready. In fact, I may actually have been late for lunch, but my memory is going and I already can't remember.

And so to the afternoon. A diet of video gaming would await me, surely, after spending hours trying to work out why my external hard drive wasn't working yesterday. What would it be? Serious Sam II? Project Snowblind?

In fact, it was neither. Tax return information to be dealt with, so I spent the afternoon unsuccessfully looking for a piece of paper. Oh well, the required information is bound to turn up at some point. Probably about five minutes after the deadline passes.

Dinner this evening: jacket potato with warm tomato sauce, bacon and cheese. Tasty, though I still feel a little peckish. Not much chocolate left in the house, though.

That's all for today. Love and kisses to the both of you who made it to the end of today's blog post. You don't know how much that means to me.

Mmmm. I'm so looking forward to really get to know you Robsie. Today I was so relieved that you had a proper dinner and that you weren't able to stuff yourself with Kit Kats. I bet Mrs Lacey has hidden them well now when she's discovered your worst vice.


EDIT: Was that a kiss?!
Hurry Jaz, if your quick enough you get the other one!

Oh, don't be silly. It's hardly like I'm going to share anything remotely personal about myself on a public blog, so you're not really going to get anything that you wouldn't have got if you'd just asked me...

On the contrary, there are no Kit Kats in the house. The advantage of being at home is that I don't have to pay for most of my chocolate. The disadvantage is that my mother buys a lot less of it than I do.

Can I just check something? ARe you lot really trying to hold a "most boring" contest with an accountant?

Did I ever tell you about the time someone sent me their accounts data and they'd already run the year end routine so I couldn't print off a trial balance but it was OK because I realised that I could get a trial balance if I just searched the audit trail for the Ledger Year End journals and then I could run a transactional trial balance that was filtered by date and the transaction numbers just before the year end journals but that wasn't the end of it because then I had to look for entries made after the year end journals that were dated before the year end to adjust in my journals when I put the whole thing on our accounts production program to make sure that I was using the correct figures for preparing the accounts and it's a good thing i did that because they had put their opening balance journals on after they'd run the year end routine which meant all of my opening balances would have been wrong if I hadn't journaled all those post year end entries and then my accounts wouldn't have added up properly which is a bad thing.

We all had a good laugh about that one I can tell you.

EDIT By the way, am I alone in finding dead people sexy?
Not really. Just responding to Relek.

Yawn, you could bore the feathers off of a duck. I think you should win.

By the way, yes, you are the only one that finds the dead sexy.
