DVD producers.  When I fork out my hard earned for some boxed set or other, it is  through Amazon, Play.com or some other legitimate vendor.  I have never bought any DVDs from a chinese bloke carrying a large holdall, though I have been approached by many.  In light of this why, whenever I load the DVD, is my living room polluted with your protracted, patronosing piffle about the evils of pirated DVDs.  Just feck off.

Why won't my sodding router fit back in the shitting box, as if using the damn thing isn't confusing enough (pingfuckits galore).

My radio alarm clock has died  :'(

I've had it almost 18 years and it had a klaxon alarm that was one of the few things that can wake me. 

Ever tried a vibrating one?  They're surprisingly hard to ignore...
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Trust me it's not the good sort of buzzing ;).  It's more like having a woodpecker attached to your HEAD very early in the morning!

You'd need some way of programming the alarm time.  Maybe a cockerel...

It would have to be a randy woodpecker.  They only drum in the mating season.

Bit disappointed by the Brecon Bike Bus.... I'll explain.

I fancy doing the Taff Trail from Brecon to Cardiff. My plan was to drive to Brecon and do the 55 mile route and then get the bus back to Brecon. I had considered getting the train to Cardiff but on a Sunday (the only day the bike bus runs) the first train doesn't get me to Cardiff until after Noon and of course, there isn't a station in Brecon.

So, is my plan a goer... nope as it seems the Bike Bus only runs from Brecon to Cardiff in the late afternoon and not in the morning when I would like to use it.

Sigh. I suppose I could cycle from Cardiff to Brecon and then get the bike bus back but its up hill that way. :(

Note to self: do not read the motor sport new on the BBC's red button thingie until after you've watched the Superstock TT >:(  However nice it was that Michael Dunlop won after the bad luck he'd been having.
