As long time readers may now towards the end of last year I did a series of posts based on the discussion boards of a certain LDS website . I haven't visited this site in a while but I thought I might try to see what they were saying after the announcement of the new 1st Presidency for our church. Well decided to visit was my first mistake, actually reading anything was my second I don't know what it is about this site but it seems to bring out the worst in church members.
There was one thread about the new presidency. The person who started the thread said words to the effect of that although President Monson was the traditional choice for president, he didn't know if his choice of counselors were traditional. So he asked if people thought President Monson had gone with a traditional choice or was trying some new and innonative. At which point I stopped reading appalled by this thread which seemed bad even by this sites standards. " traditional or innonative" it makes it sound like that he was picking a football team!
Well never let it be said that eastenders is struggling for storylines. In their latest " not attempting to push the boundaries of taste and cause a media frenzy in order to boost our ratings, honest" storyline a wife whose husband cheated on her will seduce him, drug him, then bury him alive in the woods in a coffin. See that happens all the time in soaps doesn't it? In fact I'm sure no one will raise a eyelid over the fact she's driving round with a coffin on the backseat of her car!
I got to drive Grumpys car into work today as he was taking mine to get some new tires. I was actually impressed with my last set of tires as they lasted a lot longer then we thought they would considering we got a warning at my last MOT. I think grumpy was glad as well that they were actually replaced this time as I think he had enough of taking my car in only to be told that there was no point to replace them yet.
I stopped to get petrol yesterday to discover valentines dispalys are even taking over the petrol stations. Is there no way to escape this day which is only good for people in relationships and only serves to make people who aren't in relationships even more painfully aware of this fact? Hmmm?? The petrol station I stopped at, did have quite cheap fuel. it was "Only" £1.02 a litre. which works out at something like $7.72 a galleon in US prices. I remember when eighty pence seemed like a lot.
