crisis averted

I bought some and all is right in the world. well, world RBB anyhoo.

I think, to celebrate, we should all do a little dance.

if you can't dance, LEARN!

betty feels poorly. please send flowers.

ok, so that was unnecessary and hell, i have a rapidly being fought off cold and that's not actually what I want to blog about. I don't even want to tell you what i ate today (peanut butter, pink grapefruit, more cereal, canned soup, chocolate milk, lots of throat sweets).
i want to tell you a little story.
SO you're wandering along the street, holding hands with someone you are crazy about. you've just rented a dvd (Better than Chocolate, FYI) and bought Ben and Jerry's ice cream (cherry garcia.. mmmm pie). it's balmy, summery eveningish and you aren't really thinking about much apart from how cute she is and how much you are looking forward to curling up in bed with a tub and two spoons and vegging the night away.
and then some cunt comes and shatters the mood because they are looking for a fight and the fact that you happen to be minding your own business is utterly irrelevant. suddenly, what matters is that the person you happen to be holding hands with is the same gender as you and you stand to get the crap beaten out of you for that.
so, i did the sane thing. blanked her, walked away, ignored her shouting insults after us. i know this is the only rational reaction, because fuck, my life is worth more than turning up to a really important job interview or risking my girl getting hurt because i dont want to take some shit from a streethanging lowlife. but since then i have been quietly seething about it. why should i have to put up with shit like this? i mean fuck, i am very very good at not rising to bait when i know that i'm not going to win this. my brother is 6 years older than me and a lifetime of being wound up over stupid shit has taught me to chill out. but this... this Pisses Me Off.
so was I right? or would i have been totally within my rights to have turned around, caught her eye and winked a split second before i bust her jaw with a right hook?
i don't like hitting chicks. i box, and sometimes that's the nature of the game but at least then you're on a level footing. this chick would have stuck a knife in my back if she'd had one, but she doesnt understand the nature of serious rage combined with a fair amount of training in a boxing ring and a certain level of mass protective instinct.
i am still seething.

So. Kath and Kim have finally made it to the UK, as of tonight on Beeb2. yey! it can't be long before John Safran follows! here's hoping anyway. but in the meantime, learn how to knit a clanger. Courtesy of that venerated institute of learning, the University of Leicester. Now, if Oxford did stuff like that I certainly didnt come across it. How disappointing. Also note how the knitting instructions actually come from Oliver Postgate himself. he invented the clangers. cool. and if you don't know what clangers are, educate yourself here. Off you go.
