If Only I Could Afford Them

I’m skint as always, but if I had a bucketload of cash for a spending spree on clothes this is what I’d get. My apologies for pinching your bandwidth to embed the images. And I understand copyrights, so please be forgiving. When I eventually have the cash you’ll get purchases from me.

Bit of an eclectic mix I guess. I do love good quality selvedge jeans, the quality of the denim run off the Toyota looms is pretty shit hot, plus the selvedge seam is so cool. As for the suits, we’ll I do have to admit that I feel like a fish out of water in them, but I do scrub up well. I just wish I had reason to look this kind of crisp all the time. But it’s not practical, running around after the DDs’ and doing school runs. Maybe if we had a car it would be different, but I’m less interested in cars than I am in clothes (also I think Mercs and  Beemers are for people who can’t think further than their nose, and Audi or a Lexus maybe).

And of course something for DW (again If I could afford it)

Again I’m being a bit naughty here, this is stuff I would love to get for DW. She is a sexy woman and I love her and her body to bits.

I suppose I should really add other stuff like Tops or Dresses, but I’ll save that for another day. I hope people don’t this is controlling or that I demand and control DWs’ wardrobe. That’s not the case, I think she would like this kind of stuff and she’d look great in it and it would boost her confidence. Anyway, knowing DW if I buy her a present she doens’t like it’ll just never get worn… hmmmm! perhaps this is where our money problems stem from.

About Monopoly (the game)

Monopoly, is actually a great learning tool. Yesteday, DD1 and I played it, but we did the hard version. Starting with no money and only collecting our “salary” once we passed go.

Before the first round ended we were both in debt, because of the chance cards. DD1 got a school fees bill (I found that rather ironic), and I got a tax bill (also ironic).

It gave me an opportunity to explain why pay is in arrears, the complication of debt, why she only got £50 rather than the £200 when she passed go.

We didn’t have any dice so we used coins in cup. One of us would shake the cup when it was our turn and which ever coins landed heads up, would be added together for the number of moves. So she got to practice addition. We used a 5p, 2p and 1p coins, so the maximum would be 8 moves on the board.

If you got 8 you had a second turn, three 8 in a row and you went to jail. If you got all tails you’d miss a turn.

We also had to wikipedia the road or street that we landed on and read it out, so that was a touch of literacy for her as well as the history and geography of London.

All in all, I think it was a successful use of Monopoly. It took so long (because there was a rule that you had to save £1000 before you could start buying), that we never got around to starting to buy.

So there is an opportunity, for housing economics, the purpose and use of saving and debt and bankruptcy. All in all a good learning tool.

Next, I may have to introduce her to Risk, to learn macro politics. As an aside, when I was a kid, my grandmother used to play a card game with me called “Bulls and Bears”, it was about the stock market, I wonder if I can find a copy.

Do you know what its like carrying an asleep child on the Tube during rush hour delays

Well, that was me. Youngest spark out on my shoulder, standing on a packed platform, loads of twenty something ‘tards pushing, shoving, tutting. Do you think this is my hobby, do you think I want to be doing this?

What a bunch of fuckers young Londoners are. Well I had petty revenge, kicked one woman’s heels out from under her, when she shoved past, tripped one bloke who pushed in hard and bag tugged a second who did something similar. Yeh! I was looking for a fight. Go on pick on the bloke carrying a young asleep kid, make yourself look like the specimen you are.

Years of schlepping on the central line has taught me how to be a quiet bastard. So next time you get off the tube and wonder how your bag is broken, it’s the old bloke with kids who owns a strap cutter.

I fucking hate London at times.

Bad number reportage The Telegraph – Have sex with 21 women decrease prostate cancer by 19%

What a shit bit of reporting. The Canadians ain’t showing themselves to be that bright either.

Fuck 21 birds and you decrease prostate cancer by 19%, but fuck blokes and there’s no change. So extending that logic I have 47 times less chance of getting prostate cancer, or negative 893% likelihood of my arse falling out of my pants, due to the volume of emotionally devoid casual sex, prior to meeting my wife and changing my emotional vacuum.

My own personal study of a sample size of 1 shows that breast cancer is highly likely in women who marry me, as I’ve only been married the once therefore that logic is correct as my sample population 100% was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Fucking newspapers and spurious maths. All this does is pander to the less able to think and prove their own nascent ideas.

I used to read the Telegraph now no longer.
