(An early birthday present from me to me*…)
Very cool video – with thanks to Neil Gaiman, for posting it on his blog.

Now, here’s a serious Quote Of The Day, by Nicola Barker, author of the wonderful Darkmans novel (and many more):
“I find writers boring. Writing is kind of a debased pastime, it’s one level above masturbation.”
I suppose I should file this under Quote Of The Day – even though I think the reviewer of the latest Spiderman movie has issues…*:
“He’s exhilarated by his changing body. The web-shooting hands are a masturbation metaphor. We get it.”
(Not so much once bitten, twice shy as once imagined…)
(All trees go pear-shaped without one…)
My Quote Of The Day, care of the Alan Partridge Construct:
“[Christenings] are a gentle form of waterboarding.”
What great timing…

Here’s something for you to take away the pain as fast as you can say, “Holland Hubris Hilariously Hammered Home”.

(Four weeks to the month you may mark),
But never as yet (’tis your Captain who speaks)
Have we caught the least glimpse of success!”
