For some reason I am reminded of Mrs Shadow's mentioning that she wanted a big "statement piece" on the wall in our hall way

Through the wonder of the Interweb I ordered one and while she was away I put it up. 

I maintain it is entirely her fault for failing to specify what she wanted which is why when you go down our stairs you are currently faced with this:

Apparently not what she wanted. 

Oh my! That brings back nice memories. Wooden raquets. Whatever happened to them?

My first thought was, "Gee those trees are really close to the baseline.

I feel your pain. We should not lose sight of the real victim here, you offer a genuinely helpful suggestion and are met with a barrage of abuse and vitriol. 

Thanks Shadow, your concern for me means a lot.

The delivery driver for my suit has to do 63 drops before mine and the parcel was loaded onto his van at 0616 this morning.  Happy I'm not doing that job...

Well, your parcel is in the tender hands of Yodel, so he'll probably do half a dozen deliveries, chuck the rest into a canal and bunk off for the rest of the day, reporting that he couldn't deliver them.

The Isle of Dogs in London is more densely packed in terms of population than Tokyo and just falls short of Hong Kong population density.

I know you was only trying to be helpful Bob. I took your advice  and suggested that in future she should bake double the amount. Mrs Moose didn't take the suggestion in quite the spirit it was intended, informing me of the location of the #*%*ing kitchen, what #*%*ing ingredients to use and to make them my #*%*ing self next #*%*ing time.

 

Go ahead, then hide them.

I was doing a house clearance with a friend for a few quid, and the deceased owner of the house had 20 wood racquets, he also had 7 lawn mowers in his garage, all of them serviceable!

I just changed the lock on the door of my flat, as it had jammed solid.

Thankfully the jam happened while the door was unlocked, so I could get in and out while waiting for the replacement to come, but that's a lot of screwdriver work.

I was trying to lock our front door this morning while holding my work bag, a flask and a radio at the same time- after broddling about for a few mins I realised my wifes key was in the other side

My lunch today was a punnet of grapes and half a block of cheese.

I went for the rib of beef, pint and a half of Golden Muddler and a shared sticky toffee pudding.

I had a light lunch as we were supposed to be off out tonight to one of those rubbish chain restaurants, Ask, as the wife wants to see her friend who is in the area for the weekend.  I griped about her choice of microwaved frozen stuff "restaurant" and the wife said "well, you don't have to come along", clearly thinking I'd buckle to be nice to her friend.  I'm now dropping her off at 6 then probably going to get myself an Indian takeaway or pizza and watch a good movie in peace :)

I had a lamb tikka balti with naan and rice for dinner. I had onion bhaji for starter.

I think my missus would doubt her chances of getting me there at all, let alone call my bluff.

Just when I was enjoying Quora.com, they banned me because of their "real names" policy. How did they know that Elvis Kardashian wasn't my real name? I couldn't be bothered explaining that I had used that name because I find hyphenated surnames pretentious and thus didn't use my full name, Elvis Farmduck-Kardashian. I got back on by editing my profile to James Tedesco.

I like to use an odd name when I sign up to new sites so when the spam starts arriving in my mailbox for Elvis Kardashian I can just add the name to my spam filter.

And cold shoulder for breakfast?

Nah, she's used to me after all these years...  I put up with her shopping habits, she puts up with my grumpy surliness at anything to do with socialising with people I'm not fond of, especially in food restaurants where they microwave frozen food and charge fresh food premium prices.

What other kind of restaurants do you frequent then ?

I’m not prejudiced, I hate everybody equally
