Pointless things I have done

December 2nd, 2008

In my life I’ve done many pointless things, sometimes shamefully so. Among these you can include many of the videos we have made, the countless times I have completely dismantled the Lego ambulance Kev gave me and put it back together again, and the time I went to Tesco in my slippers.

This week I’ll be performing an exercise in pointlessness to put them all in the shade. I’m getting up at 5.30 on Friday morning and driving six hours north to Preston, where I will spend most of Friday and Saturday before coming home. Why? Because the Preston Bypass is turning 50 years old and I plan to be there.

It’s not going to notice if I miss the event because it’s a road, and in fact, it was completely rebuilt in 1995 so it’s not physically the same road any more either. But I will be there all the same and I’m sinking a rather alarming amount of money into the venture to travel there and back and stay over.

How pointless is your life? Share your pointless tales here, my friends, and weep with me.

    I do have to say, that that is about the most pointelss and shamfully sad thing I have ever heard anyone say… ever. And I even listen to what politicains say.

    That makes me swell with pride. At least I have accomplished SOMETHING.

    What are you going to do there? Take it some jelly and a cake?

  • 4. Chris  |  December 2nd, 2008 at 13:20

    Yes, and rub it into the surface.

    For two days.

    While crying.

    Oh, ok then. That makes it all OK.

    Can I just ask why we have a shoddy McDonalds sign up next to the website name? 😛

    Ian is at a Pensions Presentation meeting right now – bearing in mind we are most likely to be made redundant in the New Year, that seems fairly pointless to me.

    Here here!

    Also I will regail my son with your tale of shod so that he too can visit the site in perhaps twenty years time.

    I’m glad you’re all so proud of me. It brings a tear to my ear and a bogey to my nose.

    *blows nose*

    You’re always blowing your nose. Haven’t you had a cold for the last like twenty years?

  • 11. Chris  |  December 11th, 2008 at 15:00

    Yes. Nice and nippy, that’s how I like it.

    GET A JOB PILGRIM!
