Me and my big mouth

Last week I happened to mention where the toilet rolls had disappeared to. The fact that half the development team are off sick and the other half are coughing, sneezing and spluttering in the office might explain where the bog rolls went.

Come Monday morning and this is the office toilet.

Should last a few weeks.

Oh, and don’t ask why there’s a vacuum cleaner in the toilet 😛

You crazy Dutch bastard

My Dutch friends birthday is coming up this month, and like last year he’s saving up for his usual treat. Normal people would go for a meal. Or maybe weekend away. Not my crazy dutch friend, he’s going for a slightly different approach to celebrating by going to, in his words, a whorehouse.

Last year he sent me a link to pick one for him, but that Polish girl is no longer there haha

He’s also translating the site for me, two new girls have started and they are in “testing.” What? How? A thousand questions in my head.

It’s another world compared to the stuff prudish attitudes the UK has to sex.

But he’s made the day fly by so thank you, my crazy Dutch bastard 😀

Amazing coloured photos of the four Romanov daughters

I’ve just been reading Helen Rappaport’s excellent book Four Sisters again, about the four daughters of the last Tsar of Russia.

While doing some research on the interweb, I found this stunning image of the Grand Duchesses Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia.

P.S. Just after I published this post, I noticed that this image is the actually the front cover of the current edition of the book. Whoops! One of the problems with using an eReader.

David Bowie, 1947-2016

Days after the passing of Lemmy, 2016 continues to be a shit year with the passing of David Bowie after an 18 month battle with cancer.

Absolutely gutted, and it takes his passing and an eight hour marathon of his music on my iTunes today to realise just how brilliant he was over five decades.

But just like it was listening to the lyrics of Freddie Mercury on the Innuendo album after he died, listening to his last single Lazarus it makes me wonder how the hell we didn’t get the message before.

He’ll be sadly missed, and like Lemmy, we’ll never see his like again.

I’ve been listening to this track too much today, but it’s an amazing performance from the Old Grey Whistle Test.

R.I.P Ziggy and Major Tom
