You Couldn't Make This Up...

So far it's been a bad day. I’ve sliced myself open, flooded a kitchen with washing power, been attacked by a dog, and a gentleman traveller from the Indian subcontinent pissed on my leg. This is the absolute truth, just not necessarily the right order.

The man was using some bushes near Bangor station to relieve himself. He must have thought he had a few minutes alone and didn’t see me approaching from the path. The bushes caught most of the stream. I caught the rest. I was untypically calm about it and the chap was very apologetic. Half an hour later, on my way back from town, I was attacked by a dog who came rushing out of somebody’s garden and tackled my right ankle. I wonder if he could smell urine on my shoes which he destroyed. My right shin is covered with fang marks.

I got home and spilled a full box of washing power over the kitchen.

The I cut my finger open trying to fix the TV aerial.

I’m not having a good day.

Chip, take comfort, old son, in the certain knowledge that tomorrow will be worse.

Piss on one's shoes is not good - and worse when it isn't even your own (women know this from crouching down behind hedges and foot slipping on wet grass etc etc). But you could cheer yourself up with a good deed for the day. I want to know how you manage to post images without that blasted line framing the piccy; wadya do to your html??

Graf... So far the shoes are having a better day but thanks for the pessimism. Wouldn't want to get too optimistic.


Mopsa, to answer your question: to get rid of the line, find this in your Blogger template:

.post img {
padding:4px;
border:1px solid #4c4c4c;

And change the border from 1px to 0px.

.post img {
padding:4px;
border:0px solid #4c4c4c;

That should do it for you.

Chip! You are a Bangor star. Sew a nice gold one on the front of Monday's thong. I will see it glint from across the Severn.

seems to me you could sue any number of people for your Saturday of Shame, and come out ahead in the long run.

We all have had days like that. Well, not so much the getting pissed on. But close to that.
