The ‘Recent cool stuff’ section of my links isn’t working properly, much to my annoyance, so I’ll just quickly blog about these two sites I’ve found.
The first is mildly interesting, it’s an anonymous online confessions service, where anyone can look at whats been ‘confessed’, but you don’t know who said it. Some are fairly shocking but most are just normal. It’s an interesting thing to read to pass the time if yu’re bored and also helps the vast majority of us realise that our lives aren’t that bad and we aren’t as screwed up as we thought we were. The address is rather nice too: grouphug.us

Now the next site I’ll mention is just plain fantastic, as can quickly be deduced from the address: thingsmygirlfriendandihavearguedabout.com [things-my-girlfriend-and-I-have-argued-about].
This guys humour is not just up my street, its standing outside my door bearing gifts in the form of chocolate covered treats. This I discovered this lunch time, and since then have decided must be only read with an empty mouth.
Not that it was a total disaster, but I narrowly avoided the embarrassing situation of spraying a partly masticated sandwhich all over, and in the vicinity of, my computer. This wouldn’t have been a cause of embarrassment simply becasue of the mess. No, It would also have been awkward when relating the particular passage that tickled me so, knowing full well that it would have been greeted with – at best – luke walm chuckles, and at worst blank stares, from the rest of the office.
If you’re that curious the section in question was as follows:

The Terror Of Lids: Yes, the rewards are high, but it’s a game where the price of defeat is savage. Sometimes Margret, after grunting with it herself for a collection of ‘hnggh’s, will hand me a bottle or a jar that has a screw top along with an impatient, ‘Open that for me.’ If the gods lie content in the skies above England at that moment, then what follows is a rapid flick of my wrist, a delightful ‘click-fshhhh’ gasp of surrender, and my handing the thing back to her FEELING LIKE A HERO OF NORSE LEGEND.

It of course goes on to tell of how this is so rarely the case.
