notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

Touche Tosser

When I was in primary school I sat next to a pillock who used to lie continually. He told me he was once given a trophy by the then extremely popular English comedian Lenny Henry engraved with "To Chris, the Funniest Dude I have Ever Met". Chris never made anyone in the class laugh, and when I went to his house once and asked to see it I was told that it currently resided in the basement and it was too dangerous to get to it.

He also tried to make me believe that he had gone horse riding once (his first time), and due to some error he had had to ride this wild unbroken steed that no-one who worked at the stables would even ride. Chris gallantly tamed this fuming stallion, even though it reared up in an attempt to dislodge him. He had received an award for this as well, which also was in the basement. I pointed out that the bravery, courage and verve exhibited by Chris in his little tussle with the bronco should've been more than enough to conquer a few boxes of his mother's china and a big globe, but I was obviously wrong.

Chris also told a number of us that if we were at school in Japan or China we would learn how to eat with chopsticks instead of maths and science. I eventually shouted at Chris to shut up once in the middle of class and was moved.


It appears I may owe the gimp a partial apology.

Phony.
