Funny and insightful post on Tomato Nation about the etiquette of being a grown-up.
A certain grace period for the development of basic consideration and self-sufficiency is assumed, but once you have turned 25, the grace period is over, and starring in a film in your head in which you walk the earth alone is no longer considered a valid lifestyle choice, but rather grounds for exclusion from social occasions.
I think I’m mostly fine on these things.

Sod Tarvuism I’m converting to Barvuism.

Just had a customer at the cinema who wished to buy tickets but had forgotten her membership card with which she could get a discount off the price. So I asked her name so that I could search the members database to find her, she replied “wily, spelt W-i-l-l-e-y.”
I thought interesting as that’s not how I’d pronounce that surname and it put me in mind of the apocryphal quote attributed to cricket commentator Brian Johnston in regards to the West Indian bowler Michael Holding.
“The bowler’s Holding, the batsman’s Willey.”
And through his Wikipedia entry I find the following YouTube video of what is regarded as the best bowled over of Test cricket ever.
