Just round the girls’ house so can reply on a proper keyboard, hurrah!

I’m very glad they’ve rejected the plan to remove his cones. They’re a part of Glasgow’s street life.

It’s also had a side benefit of revealing to the word the anal tendencies of “Sandy Stoddart, the Queen’s sculptor in Scotland, [who] told the Herald: “Any move to end the tedious, unfunny, irreverent and strangely righteous addiction Glasgow has had to coning the Wellington statue I greet with warmth.

“The single most embarrassing thing about the culture of Glasgow has been the cone on the duke’s head. It is detestable.”

The single most embarrassing thing? So that’s worse than the sectarian zoning by religion? (I don’t want to start an argument, just trying to highlight Stoddart’s pompous, ridiculous attitude).

Years ago we used to use DEC VT220s - if you spilt coffee in them they always gave Keyboard Error 4 on startup. My support team had to go and replace them. Loads of time “No I never spilt anything on it. I don’t understand it.” You’d turn up to replace it and just pour half a cup of cold coffee out of it in front of them …

No, before anyone else sends me anymore flexiloquent emails suggesting that my colleague, Mr Looby, may not have a damaged keyboard, as claimed, but instead, rather damaged fingers which may or may not have been my doing.

Mr Looby’s electronic griffonage is as claimed. Nothing more.

As for Wellingtons somewhat amusing eccedentesiast features perched up there upon his stone cold quadrel, they are merely capped with Glaswegian humour. Humour, in Glasgow, is as iconic as the unique way in which we offer, sometimes too readily, the famous Glasgow smile.

looby, n.; pl. loobies. A lout; an awkward, stupid, clownish person

M / 60 / Bristol, "the most beautiful, interesting and distinguished city in England" -- John Betjeman [1961, source eludes me].

"Looby is a left-wing intellectual who is obsessed with a) women's clothes and b) tits." -- Joy of Bex.

WLTM literate woman, 40-65. Must have nice tits, a PhD, and an mdma factory in the shed, although the first on its own will do in the short term.

There are plenty of bastards who drink moderately. Of course, I don't consider them to be people. They are not our comrades.
Sergei Korovin, quoted in Pavel Krusanov, The Blue Book of the Alcoholic

I am here to change my life. I am here to force myself to change my life.
Chinese man I met during Freshers Week at Lancaster University, 2008

The more democratised art becomes, the more we recognise in it our own mediocrity.
James Meek

Tell me, why is it that even when we are enjoying music, for instance, or a beautiful evening, or a conversation in agreeable company, it all seems no more than a hint of some infinite felicity existing apart somewhere, rather than actual happiness – such, I mean, as we ourselves can really possess?
Turgenev, Fathers and Sons

I hate the iPod; I hate the idea that music is such a personal thing that you can just stick some earplugs in your ears and have an experience with music. Music is a social phenomenon.
Jeremy Wagner

La vie poetique has its pleasures, and readings--ideally a long way from home--are one of them. I can pretend to be George Szirtes.
George Szirtes

Using words well is a social virtue. Use 'fortuitous' once more to mean 'fortunate' and you move an English word another step towards the dustbin. If your mistake took hold, no-one who valued clarity would be able to use the word again.
John Whale

One good thing about being a Marxist is that you don't have to pretend to like work.
Terry Eagleton, What Is A Novel?, Lancaster University, 1 Feb 2010

The working man is a fucking loser.
