The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


If You Thought Your Monday Was Bad Before …

… imagine how it will be when you realise there are people out there that ‘urgently’ need to buy a 2.15 million euro car and tell the World via a Linkedin status update.

But it gets worse.

Because the person in desperate need of those uber-expensive wheels is a supercar dealer which means there’s someone out there who is willing to pay him even more than the 2.15 million euros he’s offering to buy the car.

And I thought I’d been impetuous and gratuitous buying a 15RMB croissant this morning.

BUT DON’T GET TOO DOWN

Yes, I know I’ve pushed you to the edge of despair.

Yes, I know you’re questioning what you’re doing with your life.

Yes, I know you’re close to giving it all up and waiting to die.

But I have salvation.

Because there will be no more blog posts till Thursday.

And if you think that’s good news, wait till I tell you why.

Because I’m going to a NIKE conference and I will have to join in the activities.

In other words, I will have to play sport.

Move my body in ways that don’t just involve stretching for a coffee.

And wear shoes, not Birkenstocks.

See, your Monday isn’t so bad after all.

Bastards.

A free holiday to follow last weeks free holiday? Best planning you’ve ever done.

Comment by DH

I’m up for a Cannes effectiveness award.

Comment by Rob

By being away from work so much, you ensure that the output is much more effective. Your victory is assured.

Comment by John

What do you mean you bought a croissant this morning? It’s 6am isn’t it there? Unless you sleep buy, I’m guessing this was written in advance of positing again. So maybe you’re not going to a nike conference and maybe you will have posts before thursday. I wish I hadn’t thought about this, it’s more depressing than Mr Ferrari man.

Comment by DH

he would have sent jill out to get it. you should know by now he never does his own fucking dirty work.

Comment by andy@cynic

Good point.

Comment by DH

I was up at 3:30am attending to a child who decided he had enough being ill and wanted to play. An early (early) morning croissant was a necessity, not a luxury.

Comment by Rob

If I had a ferrari, I’d expect hotter chicks than the woman in the photo.

Comment by Billy Whizz

Brand devalue.

Comment by Pete

You’d be disappointed.

Comment by John

I’d expect the Police by your side if you were claiming you owned a Ferrari.

Comment by Rob

I’m sure you’ll find your greatness.

Comment by John

find your lamest.

Comment by andy@cynic

Will Thursdays post be you in your shiny new Ferrari?

Comment by Rob (other one)

Kind of. But no. Sadly.

Comment by Rob

Can’t Jill give you a note to take, ‘excusing’ you from games?

Comment by Ian Gee

It only shows the power of ferrari brand. If someone want to buy it so urgent it means that he isn’t doing it for himself but for someone else – for his “audience”. They have to know that he has got ferrari.

Comment by Albert

Funny that Ferrari are now rich playboys car, rather than the race drivers car. Not sure if that’s the power of the brand or the decline of it.

Comment by DH

That’s very planner of you Dave.

Comment by Pete

Except they always were.

Comment by John

True, but the perception of the brand is now skewed much more in favor of playboys than engineering excellence and racing drivers.

Comment by Pete

Hmm. Couldn’t that be said about all supercars?

And is that a US-based view? F1 still seems quite popular elsewhere and the tifosi are always in evidence.

Comment by John

who gives a fuck. you have a days rest from campbells wank and youre arguing about a fucking car. you sad fucking twats.

Comment by andy@cynic

Comment by Rob (other one)

the fucker is never gone, he always comes back.

Comment by andy@cynic

Not seeing a new post this evening/your morning means my monday ended up being pretty cool. You were right Rob. Well done.

Comment by DH

News just in – a man from Nottingham has been sighted practising his dunking technique.

Comment by John

Fair enough. Dunking takes practice.
If you leave the biscuit in the tea too long, it breaks off …
