On an almost daily basis, I receive an email from a different misfortunate Eastern European sexpot begging for financial aid to help her and her poor, misfortunate family in these tough economic times. In exchange for my largess, they also extend an invitation to join them in their freezing little village where they will express their gratitude. I think it's time to take them up on the offer.
This is Elena, she lives with her mother and 7-year-old daughter in Russia, she found my email address on the internet apparently. My beloved Elena is currently suffering through one of the coldest ever Russian winters and all she wants is a portable stove heater to heat her daughter and old mother.
She says I can send her one if I want but that it would actually be cheaper just to send her the €192 and she'll buy it herself. Already she's looking to save me a little money, what a darling!
She lives 200km from moscow and it's meant to be very cold but I'll send the money for the heater on ahead, so by the time I arrive to take my place as the patriarch of my new Russian family, herself and the mother should have the thing installed and on full blast.
Anyway it may be a while before you see any more updates here as Elena says there's no electricity in her village. That has left me a little confused about how she got my email address and had access to the internet but I suppose only a true fool searches for reason in the ways of love.

My fellow Leaderite Alan Owens has been nominated for the Irish blog awards while still only in his blogging infancy.
Leaving aside the highly contentious issue of my non-inclusion on the shortlist, let me offer my hearty congratulations to Alan and of course to the elders of the local blogging community, most notably Bock and Squid but most, most notably Dick.
The full list of nominees is available here.

However, the genre got an shot in the arm last week with the emergence of this little legend. Already he's better than 99.99999% of his peers. His debut album, "Satan's soother" is due out in the first quarter of 2009. Enjoy!

My friend Steve and I were joint custodians of Jeremy for many joyful months. Never once did he complain about having to be kept in a frying pan when we washed his bowl. Nor did he mind when we accidentally dropped the odd household item into his home.
Not one sign of jealousy did he show when we introduced him to his new brother, Superhans. In fact, he almost jumped out on to the floor such was his excitement at greeting his new bowlmate.
And now he's gone and Bolton's still banging out the hits.
I swear, it's times like these I start to doubt whether Xenu really did bring billions of people to Earth in spacecraft resembling Douglas DC-8 airliners, stacked them around volcanoes and detonated hydrogen bombs in the volcanoes.
Here's a picture of Jez from back in the good ol' days (with Steve in the background).
And here's a classy silhouette pic I took of Jeremy while he watched TV, oh how he loved the soaps.
