Number 1: The KLF

I've been a bit negative recently, so this is number 1 in an occasional series of things that make me happy.

What Time Is Love America

Playing guitars, in armour, in a storm, on a viking longboat, the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu remind us what time love is:

Justified and Ancient

They're justified, ancient, ride an icecream van (make mine a 99 please), and persuaded Tammy Wynette to get involved in their silliness. I like to sing this one at my local karaoke haunt.

Doctorin' the Tardis

An early appearance under the name "The Timelords". This was my first exposure to Drummond and Cauty. An odd blend of The Glitter Band and the old Who theme.

Why I hate weddings

I had a long post planned, but it boils down to this:

A reading was given at the wedding I attended today about how the Bible sees marriage. Apparently the main thing it has to say (according to this reading) is that if there is an argument between husband and wife, and they cannot reach an agreement, then the wife must submit to her husband.

As an Equality and Diversity Adviser I was appalled. But it was my friends wedding, and I had to bite my tongue and seethe.

Aside: As a grumpy singleton who keeps getting wedding invites, I'm considering buying a ruined wedding dress and some toy spiders so I can attend as Miss Havisham

Bitchy rant

Well it turns out my ex isn't a useless cow, she's actually a lying bitch.

She was the one wanting to get back with me, but her track record of unreliability has been a major barrier.

I decided to give her a second chance and invited her to join me at a friends wedding. She was very excited.

And then, mere days before, she cancelled saying she had to work at short notice.

For most people this would be unfortunate but believable, but given her history, I was less than charitable and ignored her texts.

Sounds harsh maybe, but saying nothing was better than saying what was on my mind...

And then this morning I check Facebook, and see pictures of her out drinking with her mates on the night she was apparently working.

And people wonder why I am always so bitter and cynical...
