Yes I’m back.
Yes, you can say I had a mini-holiday type of thing.
Yes, I know that makes my blog post of a couple of weeks ago utterly rubbish [or more rubbish than usual] so just get over it.
Anyway, let’s get on with some more rubbish shall we?
Well screw you, I’m going to anyway.
I am not sure if you have noticed, but this blog is full of piss, vinegar, insults and ranting.
Sure, you lot contribute 75% of those attributes, but it’s still a fact.
Because of this, I thought I’d up the game a little bit by adding a dash of sophistication.
Yes, this blog is going posh. [Sort-of. Temporarily]
How? Well recently I was reading The Times newspaper and spotted a letter that I thought was worthy of sharing.
Yes, I know I’m the sort of person The Times would rather NOT read their paper, but as far as I know, it’s still a free country and I’ll read what I want thank-you-very-much.
Anyway, amongst all the self important ranting – the sort of self-important ranting that makes this blog look like calmness personified [albeit from the Jeremy Kyle school of intellectualism] – I spotted a letter that, in just a couple of lines, managed to capture the best of English humour and character at the same time.

Vienna may well be the city with the best quality of living in the world (“Spluttering London lags behind in global race”, 19 Feb), but before everyone moves here they should know that my thrice-weekly rubbish collection was 20 minutes late today.

Yes, I know it has nothing to do with anything, but it made me smile and given it’s a Monday, we need all the positivity we can get … especially as tomorrow this blog returns to rubbish.
