Knowledge pursues me but I am faster.......

If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with bullshit.......

.......One day, we will look back on this, laugh nervously, and change the subject…

Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.

Shoot London (Update)

(viewed 1366 times)
The tickets came today! ... lots of time to sort things out ... teams, team names etc ... last year's teams will know a thing or two ... Nige, I hear has a strategy ... however ..,

My team will be a fun one,
Wisecrackers to a man,
Nige might have a strategy,
But I'll have a punning clan!

.. really looking forward to this, lots of fun ... and the chance to meet up with Mobloggers old and new ... :)

We'll be shooting, up in London ...

Well, I have been handed the baton and am now organising the Moblog teams for Shoot London this year ... Nige has emailed loads of folk and SLG has already flagged it on her blog with great results :) ... we now have 5 teams booked ... these are the peeps who said they would like to take part:

(in no particular order)

Filbert Fox
Baggie Boy
JC 1000000
(Geo and Chris I have added even though they are away at the moment and can't respond, but given they participated last year and really enjoyed it I am sure they would want to be included, if they are free)

(if you have had a change of mind or just can't make it after all, no worries, just let me know (as soon as possible and I should be able to fill the places with other mobloggers or family and friends .. I am lucky enough to live very close to the venue) ... it is really good to see some new faces in the list :)

... if you are interested and would like to take part please let me know, if you can't fit into a team then there is a free event running alongside it, OK, no free beer etc, but you can still join in the fun and mobloggers will be meeting in a pub somewhere after the event ... This invite is open to all, you don't have to compete, just come along and have a good time :)

(Hope I have got this right, Nige) ...

Teams have already been paid for upfront, so you can pay me on the day ...
�£12.50 per person ... teams, and team names can be sorted nearer to the time ... I will keep you updated on my blog ... erm, think that's all for the present ..

For OJ ......

Today is St David's day,
Let's raise a frothy flagon,
OJ has donned national dress
And Nige has 'red drag on'

.....sorry about the atrocious pun ... couldn't help myself ....

Swamprose is going nuts ......

Swamprose is going nuts
Trapped in her own snow storm,
So I'm sending her cosy vibes
In the hope it'll keep her warm .....

... and sane (though I must say I do love the slightly crazy lady, and wouldn't change any aspect of her!)

Done in response to this post

So February was Kiss Month .......

So February was Kiss Month
(I went along with that)
I'm a bit of a romantic
Despite my cynic's hat.

Alfie and Judo Jule,
Posted the month's first kiss,
A lovely Moblog couple
That are difficult to miss!

With Ninjacodevicar,
A pint (because he's parched)
And me on the piano,
'killing' the wedding march,

Any thought of nuputials
Are bound to be dismissed,
In my humble opinion,
You are better getting pi**ed!

.......... actually, I am a great big softie really :)
