An Interesting Winter Break

If you are upset with the present you got, or the 2 inches of snow outside your house is annoying you, have a look at the blog over at Insomniacmedic 'Christmas Tear' and at the vimeo video over at  http://vimeo.com/18213768

As we used to say in the Cub Scouts pledge back in the 70s - '...and think of others before ourselves'

You Know Whats Amazing

Seriously, you know what is amazing, and I do too.

And this blogger and the ad at the top her page are, as we in the UK say, 'The Bee's Knees'.

I don't think I'm giving anything away when I mention that she is in the videos at the top of the page. So go here to see what The Adventures of Chopper Chick are all about.

Too Rude By Far

People have been complaining recently of just how rude and base today's comedy has become. As a fan of comedy greats such as The Two Ronnies and Morecombe & Wise I'd like to disagree.

One of the UK's most admired comedians, the late Spike Milligan, created the sketch below. And tell me that it is not racist - please!!

Arm Your Lego Men With More Realistic Weapons

Seriously, what a great possibility; arming your Lego men with more realistic weapons. No more need to turn a megaphone around or try and break off a part of a ladder - BrickArms now make serious weapons for serious Lego enthusiasts. I think my 1 1/2 year old son might be getting some of these after he gets his scalextric set on his next birthday... ahem.....

Is Your Company's Social Networking Policy Illegal?

Having been a member of the emergency services for nearly a decade I follow many blogs about, and by, EMS and related subjects.

I was thus surprised to see the article below on the subject of Facebook and twitter freedom for all!

Is Your Social Networking Policy Illegal?

 The argument for chatting about employers and superiors on Facebook? 

The National Labor Relations Act protects employees' right to discuss their working conditions, it decreed, and it didn't matter whether they did so around a water cooler or over Facebook.

It looks like it'll be an interesting discussion.

Discussion in comments - be polite!!

unusually Nice

Coming from a sarcastic and caustic workplace myself, I was happy to stumble across this website that has one reason to exist; to be nice.

If you know anyone who is hurt, emotionally, physically or even mentally, this site can bring a smile to their face.

The Postcard Project

Go there and have a look - trust me - it's worth it.

Heartbreak Blue Suede Graceland

I love Elvis. He died a long time before I knew who he was.

My parents didn't even like him. My Dad preferred classical music and my Mum? Well, sadly, she is a Cliff Richard fan - for her sins.

For me Elvis summed up what a singer is all about; a wide variety of vocal talent, the ability to convince people you can act in a film and, of course, funky hair.

And now Cirque De Soleil have come up with a new show for him;

With a new album that ROCKS!! Yeah baby!!

May I humbly suggest you go listen to the quite amazing music they created?

You have Got To Be Cheating Me!

I always enjoy shouting at other drivers as I make my way into work (Yay!) so I doubly grin when I sit down with my coffee and open my Google Reader to see a blog post from PassiveAggressiveNotes.com - they're all about people being 'polite' in very offensive ways.

Me likey - me likey alot!

And today's submission really made me grin from ear to ear. Go over there and read the note and the explanation.

Please stop feeding the homeless

May Well Lose a few Followers Here...

Back to Blogging

Its been a while and I missed you folks.

My life is beginning to fit around my new job and life is looking good. I don't want to jinx it or anything so that's all I'm gonna say about that.

My new job does involve a further commute than I had before, which in fact was going from the kitchen to the study, so I have had a chance to look at the other drivers on the road and their behaviour.

Please take into account that I was a police driver for 9 years and thus, when I 'call a spade a spade' - it is in fact with a few years and hundreds of thousands of miles under my belt.

Women really are bad drivers

Whenever I see a car weaving in the road or reverse parking for 3 minutes, I just know its going to be a female driver out there, embarrassing their gender even more, and 9/10 I am right.

I think the main reason that women are such hideously bad at getting from A to B is that they don't realize that the name of the game is not to get from A to B. It is to travel as efficiently as possible between the 2 points.

Please, when you stay in the overtaking lane for the whole freeway trip, it may save you time doing that annoying 'overtaking' thing but it just turns you into a 50mph barrier for the majority of other vehicles.

Your mirrors are for looking in. See if there are drivers behind you and around you. Note where you are in the flow of traffic and oblige the lunatic in the green Honda Civic by moving into the driving lane of the freeway. Please.

Eddie Izzard speaks frankly

I've been a fan of Eddie Izzard for many years, dating back to when he was on the stand up circuit in the UK in the early '90s. 

I have some of his shows on DVD including Dress to Kill and Live at Wembley.

He is a quite humorous young chap.

So I was very happy to stumble across a blog entry over at Dyslexia Untied about Eddie having a frank and open talk about his dyslexia.

Dyslexia: Eddie Izzard talks to the BBC about Creativity

Quite an interesting little read.  And a great blog!

Who Am I?

Who am I?

First of all I'm not Jean Valles Jean -  just in case you were wondering.

Instead of actually telling you who I am I thought I'd just give you a few pictures from some of my favorite blogs (in no particular order) - and you can further fill the picture in your mind as to who Jumblerant really is:

 HAWSEPIPER: The Longest Climb

The Adventures of Chopper Chick!

Corn, beans, spent brass, an empty page and a deadline

 The AnarchAngel

Boobs, Injuries & Dr. Pepper

Funny Signs of the Times

I do love the demotivators website - I mean come on, the website 'despair.com' doesn't capture it enough!

I love the fake ones even more;

We meet again!

Yes, it's been a while, but I've been busy with work, baby and a bit more work.

I'm not complaining, I love the baby and I really enjoy the work and the atmosphere at the office. It just doesn't leave me much time to do anything else.

So here goes:

Some interesting Star Wars pictures;
