About Me

No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play. I will 'bite the hand that feeds' to remind it why it feeds.

W is for WTF

We asked the Horticulture department to line-in the boundary on the cricket field, I say 'field' over 'pitch' as the grass is so long getting a ball out to the boundary can only be accomplished hitting-out with high balls, risking a catch!

They gave us a five-a-side football pitch running parallel with the wicket!

What can you do? If you don't laugh, you'll cry!!

And it's indelible!

hmm would be nice to see it from above... almost as walking the god around before school and finding that some idiots had flipped their car in the rugby pitch (also our chricket pitch)

well I should tell you that I went up to see if anyone was inside, but I didn't so I wont. if they are stuck it's their own fault.

fortunately a teacher did check and there was nobody in their, though it would have been nice to tell them how stupid they were.

Good grief!

What's worse - the all-weather wicket was only laid a week ago tomorrow!
