I was doing my postie round this morning &, whilst listening to the radio, the topic of Captain Pugwash came on. The presenters were talking about the innuendo that can be seen in kids TV cartoons & yep, Captain Pugwash came up!

I don’t think the escapades of Captain Pugwash made it out of the UK, & if I’m honest, I’m not even sure it was made here to begin with. But the cast of certain character names was hilarious…The three that stand out are…Sea-man Stains, Master-Bates & of course Roger the Cabin Boy! I mean come on, how did those names get past the censor commission. Bloody glad they did though as that is classic innuendo right there 🙂

The thing that had me smiling & laughing most this morning, was that one of the presenters didn’t get the innuendo in Roger The Cabin Boy. Specifically & I quote “Really? I didn’t know roger meant that!”. While all the other presenters were laughing at this in the background, one of his female colleagues had to write it down on a piece of paper for him.

The cutest thing is, the innuendo would go right over the heads of kids & is just fun for ‘adults’.

Anyway, I thought I had to share it. Let me know of innuendo laden kids programmes where you’re from.

I only realised later on that I may have scared some people on my round…cut to me with a demonic gurning like grin on my face, asking a customer to sign a package I had for them 😉

I’ve noticed quite a few bloggers, myself included, are struggling with writing. So I checked out WP’s inspiration for writing suggestions & stumbled across this simple one. Go to page 82 of the current book you’re reading & fit in the 3rd full sentence into a post. Now I think they meant to fit in creatively, but I’m just going to type it in as a sentence all on it’s own.

The book I’m reading is the the one pictured above & the sentence is “After unfolding his laptop on top of the console, the screen instantly bringing up Janus’s ammonite icon, he used a coil of optic cable to plug into a nearby port, then waited a second until the icon started blinking.”

Sheesh that sounds real dull doesn’t it. Especially as the sentence preceding that is “He fired again, here and there, sending others scurrying for cover, then sat down and opened his briefcase.” I like the casualness of shooting at people and then calmly sitting downing & opening a briefcase. It just sounds like he’s a bad ass.

Well that is my post. Probably my most random, pointless & dullest post all rolled into one.

Enjoy your Sunday. I’m going out with the wife to a local Mexican Tavern for some brunch. Mmmmmm full English. You truly can’t beat a Full English Breakfast. I’m hoping being in a Mexican establishment my goatee will not look so out of place 😀

Hmmm I’ve come to realise blogging is like going to the gym. The minute you fall out of the routine of doing it, it’s soooo hard to get back into it!

I will try to do it. Please bare with me.

Does anyone have any good blog challenges that may help?

I fear this will not be a much read, liked or commented post as it’s to do with football & as most of the bloggers I know are women well that pretty much is all I have to say. What do you think I’m getting at with that comment, discuss?

My football team Everton FC usually start their season very slowly & only get going by Christmas time. Form alone in the second part of the season in the last three years have had us finishing in the top 4 of the Premier League each time. This year however we have got out of the gates as well as I can remember. We’re currently sitting 4th in league & playing really good football.

So yes Everton FC is what I’m excited for.

By the way “NIL SATIS NISI OPTIMUM” (Club motto) translates to “NOTHING BUT THE BEST IS GOOD ENOUGH”

Got this image off Google & wish graffiti in general was as good as this.

1. I like my new job. This is a new feeling to me & is weird 🙂





Hmmm I really can’t think of anything else. I’m a big believer in if you like something then enjoy it, it’s not a problem. So that kind of outlook takes away the weirdness factor.

Oh well at least I’ve posted!

This isn’t something I think of much, but I guess I wouldn’t mind living in a real busy city like New York. I wouldn’t want to do it for long. Maybe a few years would be enough.

Short & simple
