Miscellaneous UPDATES

So no new fans for Ginger then!

‘Toss the Twat’ T shirts and mugs available soon.

As promised in the comments box, I sent an e mail to Stuart Maconie on Sat morning. It directed him to the post and the comments in particular.

So far only an automated reply - BUT statcounter recorded two separate visits from the BBC. Then - on his afternoon show he played ‘All along the Watchtower’. Uninterrupted of course.

OK - so it was probably coincidence but I like to think it was just for ME.

Sorting out my old papers today, I came across a Guardian article (8th Sept) listing some bizarre Christmas presents. It included my Big Maoi Tissue dispenser that was such a hit in ‘Kaz helps you out’.

The article was by ‘Anna Pickard’ whose fabulous blog is ‘Little red Boat’. Sorry Anna - I didn’t copy. Just ‘cos I buy the Guardian doesn’t mean I actually read it.

In July, I pointed out (maiow) that Madonna always wears long sleeves. Was she hiding flabby arms? According to the Daily Mail (no I do not read it) she’s found a solution to the problem.

Or could they have photoshopped on a bit of Arnie?

The Happy ending got even happier. According to yesterday’s Metro ‘TakeThat’ are now top of all FIVE available charts (including downloads). This is apparently unprecedented in chart history.

OK - so you couldn’t give a toss!

Atters, Macca and Morrisey are fighting it out for the Living Idol. None of my faves is left - shows what I know.

Kev?? We need to talk again…..soon!

You are a pro-active genius Kaz! I hope one of your BBC hits was the Ginger Tosser himself - put me down for a size 1 TTT T-Shirt with 4 leg-holes and an arsehole (that's the picture of Evans, of course).
Maconie he the Man! Sage Not Ginger!

I don’t know what all the fuss is about, I for one think Chris Evans is a great presenter who single handedly has changed the face of Radio and Tv in this country. He has brought joy and happiness to millions of lonely people who otherwise may well have contemplated ending it all. Thumbs up Chris (And the rest of your hand if you can fit it.)
P.S. I may have got some of that the wrong way round.

Murph: Genius? Moi?
Oh well - go on then.
Your name's on the T shirt list.

P.S. Bloody Beta is not letting me comment on your site.

Nic: Not natural is it?
Neither on Madge nor on Arnie?
I prefer a nice wimp myself.

Dave: Did you bite your tongue when it was in your cheek?
I bet you do that often.
P.S. See P.S. on Murph re Bastard Beta!

Oh, I thought it was just me that was having problems leaving a comment on Murph's blog. I thought perhaps I'd been banned.

Judging by the picture, Madonna is turning into one of those WWF wrestlers. Mind you, I have terrible issues with my bingo wings, so I don't want to pass judgment on another woman's upper arms.

Poor Murph - he'll be wimpering away there thinking nobody loves him. Glad I didn't go Beta!

Bingo wings is a new one - I call them 'Bette Middlers' from some act she did sometime or other.

I've just tried to post a comment on Vicus' site. No luck.

I think we're all going to have to join up with Beta Blogger.

Beta the devil you don't know.

Don't migrate to beta-blogger unless your'e forced to. If you want to comment on beta-sites {and blogger is not letting people at the moment [which may be a temporary thing]} try getting a separate google ID - just ask someone whom you know has a gmail address to invite you. Then you can keep the two IDs separate. If you integrate the two IDs you'll end up with old comments being tagged as anonymous.

Hope that lot makes some sense -- its past my bedtime!

Yes, sign up to the beta and come over to the dark side. It's actually alright once it gets going (as with most things in life, I find).

Blogger KAZ said...

Geoff: I think it should be renamed *Beta Blocker*.
Though it sent my blood pressure sky high yesterday when I was trying to post witty comments.

Gerald: That makes pefect sense. I'll wait as long as I can.
Beta means trial version doesn't it?
Remember Betamax?

Nora: Gets going is fine - stops going isn't!
But I've always fancied the dark side.

If you want to send comments to a Beta Blogger blog and it allows anonymous comments, you can click on the "other" option and leave your blogger "name" and URL. It'll accept the comment then. It's not possible if the blog doesn't allow anonymous comments. Otherwise, apparently you have to wait until someone who has a g-mail account invites you to sign up with Google. The only other option is to go over the The Dark Side of Beta Blogger. Evil, pure evil, that's what it is.

Blogger Murph said...

Can I come back in from this window ledge then?

9:42 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

Betty: I was still using Windows 98 until 2002 - So no beta blogging for me until I'm forced at gun point.

Murph: You poor little dog. Come back in immediately.
You only missed a few hilarious(?) comments

Don't cross me off your Christmas card list yet Kaz, the bugs post was intended for someone else and my goof comment was only a joke. You think me that unkind? Bhaa humbug

The really galling thing about not being able to post comments on beta is that people will hijack those blogs they can post on in order to comment on other weblogs. So you'll post what you think is a rather witty and sophisticated little post, and people will keep popping up and saying things like, "Hey, Murph, love the blog!"

By the way, if my milkman is reading I would like an extra pint tomorrow please. And shut the gate this time.

Oh and mum, I got dad a beard trimmer for christmas. Hint that he has to grow a shaggy beard between now and december 25th, but be subtle.

Anyone from tesco online reading? If so, I ordered bananas, not banana-flavoured cough medicine.

Aunty Joan, I've lost your address, so merry Christmas and thanks for the tank top!

And Kaz - can't believe you've not heard of bingo wings! Round our way you get a free pair with every tray of chips and gravy.

Hey Murph, Love the Blog!!!!

10:09 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Dave: Your card is in the post.
I apologised on your latest post because it has taken me about 2 days to learn how to get through to Beta. Thanks Betty!

Gary: You are sooo naughty.
I'm coming over to yours now to ask Santa for a 'Leo Sayer' CD for Christmas.

No Bingo wings for me thanks - I'm vegetarian.

Oh my God - that dog slipped in through the cat flap whilst I was writing my comment.
