My typically in-depth analysis of the French election results


Does anyone else immediately think of some kind of knitted cover for sarcastic comments?

(the pic is linky)


Oh well.

Err, OK, it seems you've just highlighted an empty line...

Hi, I suppose.

Strange empty-line-highlighting type person.

Er, wait, bugger - I can't say that now, can I? Now I've added that invisiblogging tag, empty-line-highlighting probably isn't such a strange thing to do. Well, not unless you hadn't figured out what that meant, of course. In which case, I reiterate: Weirdo.

Erm, anyway, there were other meanderings here earlier. Now there aren't. Although, I suppose, relative to the previous meanderings, these could also be called "other meanderings". But that would just be confusing. And irrelevant, because the other other meanderings don't exist anymore. Which is probably best for all of us. They only complicated things. Not like these meanderings at all.

So, yes, this invisiblogging thing. Basically, I just figure it could be fun. Less so if no-one notices, though; hence the tag, the existence of which rendered those other other meanderings confusing. Hence their removal. And their replacement with these clearly far less confusing meanderings.

Er, right, anyhow:

Watch this space :)

And all the other ones...

Excellent piece of kitsch. I'd buy it. Oddly enough, I've just made a foray into the weird world of crochet - there are some excellent toilet roll covers out there.

Belief is everything.

Ooh, I did wonder about that big empty space, and now I am wondering no more.

'Sarkozy' made me laugh, too.

gives a new meaning to 'read between the lines', but it's also fun to hide complete short stories in the code for your website...

>>between the lines<<

Yep, that's exactly what I sort of vaguely plan to do.

>>Belief is everything<<

In so many, many ways.

Such as this:

Happiness = self delusion in the face of reality.

And this:

"I will not apologise for removing Saddam Hussein. I will not apologise for the conflict. I believe it was right then, is right now and essential for the wider security of that region and the world."


"If our critics are wrong, if we are right as I believe with every fibre of instinct and conviction I have that we are, and we do not act, then we will have hesitated in the face of this menace when we should have given leadership; that is something history will not forgive."

And this:

"I can only tell you I believed the intelligence we had at the time. It is absurd to say in respect of any intelligence that it is infallible, but if you ask me what I believe, I believe the intelligence was correct."

Nice to have a prime minister who believes in things, isn't it?

(Erm, just in case anyone really did want serious and political).

Thanks. I spent ages looking for the perfect Sarkozy.
