Five reasons why I blog?

Sarah has very kindly blogged me with this t’internet meme:
write five reasons for blogging.

So, I have to think up five reasons? Not just “because I can”?

OK then:

1: Because I can ;¬)
2: I like to write, although I’m often too busy to do so. I’ve been especially lazy with my blogging this year and keep meaning to write more here
3: I like to share the occasional photo of mine here. Same for shite jokes that I get sent
4: It’s nice having an internet presence, a homepage. It’s definitely better to have a blog than some crappy “my homepage” self-written HTML nightmare with spinning GIFs and obnoxious backgrounds. And huge MIDI files that take a week to download before playing loud, annoying tunes that stick in your head
5: If I didn’t blog then my family would never know what I’m getting up to!

OK, got to find 5 more people to send this to.

Toxie – just to annoy him
Aine – one of my favourite bloggers
Morgaine – been following her and Aine around the internet for a while!
Barefoot Boo – would like to see her posting again
Bigmouth Strikes Again – Journo and amusing blogger.

There you go. All done

Comments broken

For some reason my comments have stopped working. It appears that I have a database issue as I keep getting the following error:

Comment save failed with Insertion test failed on SQL error Duplicate entry '24589' for key 1

Not looking good. I’m going to have a search and see if there’s a way to fix it.

*edit*

Fix was easy – just had to login to my control panel and repair the tables. It’d got a bit off-set at some point. All OK now (probably)

Paddy, Mick & the Pigs

Paddy and Mick, two Irishmen, went out one day and each bought a pig. When they got home, Paddy turned to Mick and said, “Mick, me ol’ mate, how we gonna tell who owns which fookin’ pig?”

Mick says “Well Paddy, I’ll cut one a ta’ ears off my pig, and ten we can tell ’em apart”

“Ah tat’d be grand” says Paddy.

This worked fine until a couple of weeks later when Paddy stormed into the house. “Mick” he said “Your fookin’ pig has chewed the ear offa my fookin’ pig. Now we got two fookin’ pigs with only one ear each. How we gonna tell who owns which pig?”

“Well Paddy” said Mick “I’ll cut ta other ear off my fookin’ pig. Ten we’ll av two fookin’ pigs and only one of them will avan ear”

“Ah tat’d be grand” says Paddy.

Again this worked fine until a couple of weeks later when Paddy again stormed into the house. “Mick” he said “Your fookin’ pig has chewed the other ear offa my fookin’ pig. Now we got two fookin’ pigs with no fookin’ ears! How we gonna tell who owns which pig?”

“Ah tis serious, Paddy” said Mick “I’ll tell ya what I’ll do. I’ll cut ta tail offa my fookin’ pig, ten we’ll av two fookin’ pigs with no fookin’ ears and only one fookin’ tail.”

“Ah tat’d be grand” says Paddy.

Another couple of weeks went by, and you guessed it, Paddy stormed into the house once more.

“Mick!” shouted Paddy. “Your fookin’ pig has chewed the fookin’ tail offa my fookin’ pig and now we got two fookin’ pigs with no fookin’ ears and no fookin’ tails! How the fook are we ever gonna tell ’em apart?!”

“Ah fook it!” says Mick “How’s about you have the black one, and I’ll have the white one”
