Quoth the Raven

“Insert Flap ‘A’ and Throw Away” by S. J. Perleman is genius!!

Many of times have I thrown a tool to create a new job of plastering the wall, javelined the whipper snipper (weed wacker for those who like wacking off weeds), hammer thrown the lawn mower, went Judo on a shrub, sprinted from a burning washing machine, dived into the pool to save the creepy crawly (suction thingy that cleans bottom of pools) from the kids toy car… Fuck me, its the damned Olympics when doing household crap.

My pet hate is finding that you are short of supplies, to which I curse the heavens so badly Hades has an earthquake. Swapping those temporary clips to hold shelves together with 100mm nails, adding brackets to support the flimsy cheap chipboard shelving, even used araldite to ensure the thin backing doesn’t warp and peal off.

Anyways, go have a read of John’s post…

Oh and John B, you drive a screw in…
