|01:55 am - Insolvency, comedy and mystery|
Networking question: does anyone have any contacts with anyone in the (British government's) Insolvency Service? I saw some posts there advertised in the local newspaper and am keen to find out more about what it's like to work there as a prelude to possible application.
Do go and read ericklendl - he's written some spectacularly funny bad romantic doggerel and Tolkeinesque sonnets. In a vaguely similar vein, new Radio 4 comedy show The 99p Challenge had a particularly silly round this week, challenging the panellists to act as councillors at the Council of Middle Earth. So if you want to hear what they reported from their parishoners, other than for the installation of further CCTV in Mordor, do go and listen. (It's a little over eighteen minutes through the show.)
Finally, a paranoia question; the answers aren't particularly interesting, it's the line of thinking that applies generally. Do you think that I am using any LiveJournal filters to write things for subsections of my Friends list in which you (you personally) have not been included? Does the fact that I am even asking this question affect your opinion on this matter?
Current Mood: optimistic

Contacts with the British gov't? I'd tell you, but then I'd have to kill you. :x
Yay bad V-Day poetry! Am advertising for Erick as well. :) *snicker* Shall have to check out this show. Thanks for the link!
LJ filters -- I'd guess probably not. Your entries cover a wide range of topics, so I assume that what you say, you say to everyone. Particularly since I seldom see that ickle lock icon in your posts. Then again, maybe I just don't get to see those posts very often... *eyes you suspiciously* (just kidding) Final answer? No. Does the question influence my answer? Nah. I think you're trying to trick your faithful readers
into revealing how they do friends-protected posts. Very clever, Mishter Bond. :p
Be swift - the current 99p Challenge will expire on Tuesday, only to be replaced by a new one. To be fair, the new one will almost certainly be very funny in its own way, just that way will probably have less to do with LOTR. (But a half-minute Potter pastiche before last week's opening credits and a LOTR-themed round this week - a rich vein of good comic material for the future, I hope.)
Actually, that's a lie. Neither episode has been all that funny, really, but they've just had their moments.
