Fotos of Hairy Fadges

Readers: Oh. We were expecting photographs of... well, you know.

Blogista: Yes. I too feel disappointed. Cheated, even. Though it is true that 'fadge' can refer to flat Irish potato cakes, inter alia.

Readers: They aren't even hairy.

Blogista: Is there no end to our misfortune?

Are You..?

Are you
  • just past your 54th birthday?
  • long-term unemployed?
  • recovering from multiple fractures to the right shoulder?
  • insomniac?
  • only sober because you couldn't be arsed today to go down Tesco for the daily bottle of Famous Grouse?
  • possessed of assets totalling a mere £750 in this world?
  • too depressed to write to your nephews and nieces thanking them for their lovely birthday cards?
  • having to look up 'possess' and 'niece' because your brain is so corroded that your spelling is suspect?
If so you get no sympathy from me, unless you've just broken your other arm trying to get out of the bath. I nearly did just now. My heart goes out to you.
