3:34 pm - Racetrack

Originally uploaded by Lorna Babes.

Me, Zander, Fraz, Shev, Mat & David went to Knockhill tonight to watch the stock car racing. It was really as a trip for Zander's 21st (tomorrow!) and it was such a fun night.

Lots of bumps, crahes and excitement! I've posted some pics over on flickr but only the ones of the people there. For pictures of the action you'll need to wait on Fraz & Shev to get posting!

Night Night!

11:28 am - John Smeaton for First Minister!
Following on from the John Smeaton mania, I thought these were pretty funny:

Once a cobra bit John Smeaton’s leg. After five days of excruciating pain, the cobra died.

John Smeaton does not dodge bullets. Bullets dodge John Smeaton

Every night before the bogeyman goes to bed, he checks his closet for John Smeaton.

John Smeaton doesn’t read books. He stares them down until he gets the information he wants.

It was once believed that John actually lost a fight to a terrorist, but that is a lie, created by John himself to lure more terrorists to him

John Smeaton isn’t afraid of the dark…the dark is afraid of John Smeaton.

John Smeaton can strangle you with a cordless phone.

John Smeaton won a game of connect 4 in 2 moves.

“If you wake up tomorrow, it’ll be because John Smeaton allowed you to”

Death once had a near-John Smeaton experience.

Most men wear superman pyjamas. Superman wears John Smeaton pyjamas.

John Smeaton plays Russian roulette with a fully loaded revolver… and wins

Time waits for no man……. except John Smeaton, who comes & go’s all he likes.

John Smeaton can believe it’s not butter.

When Smeaton peels an onion, the onion greets.

Smeaton's calander goes straight from 31st of March to the 2nd of April……No one fools the Smeaton!

3:58 pm - Christmas in Zambia
Needing some favours here:

1) Does anyone have any Christmas DVDs I can take to Zambia with me? I'm especially looking for:
a) It's a wonderful life
b) White Christmas
c) Driving Home for Christmas
d) Miracle on 34th Street

2) Can everyone write a card for Babs and pass it to me by next weekend? I think it would be nice if she had lots of cards to open on Christmas day.

Thanks guys,

10:51 am - True friendship consists not in the multitude of friends, but in their worth and value
I just got prezzies from the International Officers for going away! I didn't know a thing about it so it was quite a surprise. I got the worst case scenario 'travel' book (the one I bought for Colin last year), a funky christmas pen for writing in my travel journal and $100.00 :-) man, that's so nice of them. Think I'm gonna weep.

I'm dead today. I've not been to bed before 2am all week so averaging 4-5 hours a night is just not enough. Weird thing is, my skin goes really funny when I've not had enough sleep. Fortunatley I've just got the kids meeting tonight as there's no 2nd half and I'm not involved with the play rehersals (praise God!!).

Poor Beesley is still sick and has cabin fever. I have plans to break him out of his prison tomorrow at some point though!

You know the black cart river beside the M8 near the airport? we'll Ive been watching it for a few days - it was getting dangerously close to bursting and today I noted with glee that it has burst it's banks! hurrah! Shev would be excited.

Interesting fact for the day:
If the population of China walked past you, 8 abreast, the line would never end because of the rate of reproduction.


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”- John 1:1-2, 14

3:20 am - Sony Bravia Advert

I'm sure all of you have seen the Sony Bravia bouncing balls advert yeah?

Well GMS told me about a new one they had filmed in Glasgow. Until now I could only see amature video of the making of it.

Until today! I found it! Go watch, it's cool but not as good as the bouncing balls!

1:58 am - One Year On

Scene after doubledecker bus bomb
Originally uploaded by Antarctic Lemur.

Man, it really doesn't seem like a year since the London bombings. I remember vividly being in work and hearing about it and then the long day waiting on more details as to what had really happened.

I was walking down Byres Rd the other day and began to wonder what it would be like if something happened right there and then -Everyone just going about their normal every day business. I couldn't begin to imagin how you could get your life back together after something like that.

10:48 am - Let's all laugh at......

The England open top bus going back into the garage :-)

10:50 am - Just for fun
What's Your Brazilian World Cup Name?


I'm Speao - RUBBISH!! But if I put in Lorna Jane Speirs I get 'Speinhosa' which is much better!

Put in other peoples names to see what they would be, it's very amusing!

I like it how they shorten Kathryn McKenzie-Smith to 'Kio'

And another thing.....


Here's a guy who applied for the Middlesborough managers job - made me smile

10:35 am - Begging Again!
So... does anyone have one of these really wee cheap FM scan radios I can have? the kind of thing you get free from Viking Direct or whatever. Jo at work is looking for one she can use when out walking - if you have headphones with it then even better!

Let me know!

10:31 am - Footie Update

ok, transfers have now been done and my team looks as follows:

GK G Buffon ITA
DF R Ferdinand ENG
W Gallas FRA
DF R Carlos BRA
MD T Rosicky CZE
MD D Beckham ENG
MD D De Rossi ITA

I have 2 transfers left but I'm keeping them up my sleeve in case anyone gets injured in the near future. 

Thanks for the advice!

8:44 am - Football Crazy
Need some help with my fantasy league. At the moment I have the following players:

G Buffon ITA
DF R Ferdinand ENG
DF W Gallas FRA
DF M Baszczynski POL
DF R Carlos BRA
MD D Beckham ENG
MD Z Zidane FRA
MD D De Rossi ITA
ST A Shevchenko UKR
ST M Klose GER

The ones in bold are the ones I think I want to get rid of - but I need some ideas of who to add in? 

Im thinking change Shevchenko for Ronaldinho? Have fallen out of love with Ronaldo because he failed to get me any points on Tuesday! I've not got many transfers left so this has to be my last lot before the next phase I think.

Help me out guys, I need to do it before 12.00 today.

11:15 am - Pimping
So Pimp My Snack has been threatened with a lawsuit for using the words "Pimp My" which appear to be owned by someone already *sheesh*

Read about it here:


The website now becomes www.pimpTHATsnack.co.uk - boooo, that's nowhere near as good.
