The Scots, they love me

  • In case you missed it, I am "excellent" according Jenny "Absentee".

  • In that sort of tangential way in which my mind works, I was reminded today that I mean to buy this book.

  • And while I'm on the topic of Scots, they are apparently miserable. Perhaps this is because of the flying ants.

  • I need to learn to be a better liar. Today, I found myself vying for a promotion within the hallowed halls of my employer. My boss said: "To be honest, Chris, I just can't see your really enjoying this job. I think you might hate it."
    "You may be right," I said.

  • I wonder how one gets a job as a political joke writer.

  • Meet the toughest guy on the beach.

  • Eh? What's this about?

  • Man, here's a mystery: What could possibly have caused this explosion?
