All Day Breakfasts - Done Badly.

After waking up at the crack of noon on a Sunday with a tongue like the sole of an Arabs sandal. Struggling out the front the door in search of that Panacea the All Day Breakfast.

Only to find that nobody told the cook that rationing stopped 50 years ago and Dick Turpin is working on the till.

I would gladly pay a bit more for a 5 star Fry OR Fry Economy class but not both. How can Scotland do its best dish so badly?

recently everything stresses me out. We're shooting a film at the mo, and one of the locations is my flat. I co-wrote it, and i was in on the decision to use this place, but the place is just a shithole, and will be for a good few days yet. :(

We've got all sorts of lighting equipment about the place, i can't walk around in my underwear, and there's one member of the crew i've just taken a dislike to, so all this is stressing me, as if the stress of making a film wasn't enough. There were cashflow problems, locations cancelling, all sorts. Stress-tastic.

I got it out today by grouching at two 15-year olds on the bus though. They were sitting in the seats for mothers with buggies, and the one on the driver side of the bus already had a buggy in it, and a woman got on with her buggy... She could get her buggy in the bay for it, but she had to stand in the aisle holding the buggy in, which is less than ideal, and these little shits couldn't have not noticed, but sat there. I asked them to move to empty seats further up the bus, but they just smirked at me. Arses. A little more gentle persuasion and they moved though. Methinks they were being so awkward because the woman and her baby were dark-skinned. And because the lads were scum.

They take a beautiful place and do their damnedest to stop you from just enjoying it

That's no way to talk about vertically-challenged people! Besides, I believe the preferred term is 'munchkins.' ;>

Then you don't want to go to Strone, near Sandbank, Dunoon, where they have a Midge Lane. Now I wonder what inspired that name?

Support your local industry, try http://www.itchease.co.uk/

No, haven't tried it, but wish I had some.

Had a quick search and found Midge Hall and Midgehole, both east of Blackpool, so probably safer to visit :)

Women who ... (got a few for this one...)

1. Have bobbed hair - i get majorly creeped out by this.

2. Collect small pointless china ornaments. I generally hate ornaments on the whole, but the small glazed china pieces of expensive tat just.....ARGHHHH gimme a hammer !!!

3. Wear too much makeup. What are you scared of? Someone seeing what you look like?

Bobbed hair...well... I thought about this, and I think it is maybe just TOOOOO obbsessively anal. Too perfect. Too, don't touch me. Kindof like "don't kiss me, you might smudge my lipstick" ... that sort of thing.

And it does my head in.

Go on... post a picture of Amelie and we'll see what happens.

Purely for scientific research of course, not entertainment honest. :D

Let me try for something a bit bigger than usual, Global Warming.

As the numbers get refined, more scientists are beginning to drop their support for this concept, however the government sees it as a nice little ongoing earner, being able to tack words like "environmental protection TAX" on to the end of it, knowing that they can shame any opposition into silence with a challenge of not caring about the environment.

There's a couple of girls at the gym with this bobbed hair. 'working out' with 1kg dumbells for 10 mins then buggering off, or stand in front of the mirror 'checking' THEMSELVES out. Wait aminute, some of the guys are kinda like that too.
