NCT annoys blogger.

Right, I'm off to bring my car for the NCT test. Frankly I object to this sort of malarky. Why do I have to pay the fucking government to have my car checked out? It's 5 years old for Christ's sake. Bah!
Also, how did that fucking creep Mitt Romney win his party's presidential primary in the US state of Michigan? Do people not fucking read? Are they unaware of his nasty-assed wafflings. Do folk not learn?
Crank crank crank.

NCT update:

Apparently my emissions are too high and I need to replace the rubbers on my clutch and brake pedals because it is a bit worn.
Now I have to go back before Feb 15th. Gah!

Good Luck to your car!! It's not very hard to pass. I drive an 11 year old "old" Mini Mayfair, she is my pride and joy, I almost cried watching them rattle her in Deansmange, but she passed - yahoo! The thing that I disagree with is because I imported my car from the UK and it is a '97 reg, it should technically be NCT'd in '08, but I brought it there when I got it last year and they only certed it "roadworthy" until April this year, it's just a money thing, €50 a pop, scabby wankers!

I'm guessing the effects of the health wagon are wearing off today then, FMC?

Holy crap better check if the Lancer is due an NCT when I'm home. That's if it can even get to Deansgrange considering a Moldovan 'drove into' my brother the other day, although I'm doubting his version of events...

It could be worse, you could have shin splints like me... :-(

A good idea in principal but as with everything in this country is has been twisted into nothing more than a money making racket. They seem to favor failing people on headlights. Dickheads.

If you have ever driven on front of someone with badly adjusted headlights you would want them to fail them too.

Very annoying, badly adjusted headlights. Adjust your rearview to dazzle position and put on fog light, that'll get the message across.

Mitt Romney makes me blood boil. "Freedom requires religion just as religion requires freedom"

What an ass. I don't require religion and I feel pretty free, thank you very much.

I ranted about this before.

Suck it up FMC. There are just some things you can't change so not worth getting twisted about.

I despise the amount of coverage the US Presidential race is getting here. Yes, we will be affected by it but again there's fuck all we can do about it. Half of the candidates are nut cases in some way or another and unfortunately a lot of Americans like nut cases.

I'll cross my fingers on the day (doing it now for the car).

I'm sucking, I"m sucking. Lemons mostly.
Lou, shin splints are the Devil's smegma, I used to get them a lot when I started running first. Fortunately they lesson the more you trundle along and some good stretching before a run lslows their development. Sorry about your car, family can be smegmaish too on occasion.

BBB, I suppose we can't really talk about anyone else's elections when we re-elected that crooked belligerent huckster Bertie for a second time.

That Mitt Romney is about as dumb as a post, and as appealing. That religion quote makes my blood boil too. How dare he? Well, he's an idiot, that's how he dares.

Car problems are indeed the devil's smegma. I just got my truck back after the 'check engine' light came on for absolutely no reason. Don't get me wrong, I'm GLAD there was nothing wrong, but I don't need the scare!

Yeah but at least some of Bertie’s views are plausible, that Mormon Romney is a nutter, if his campaign portrays him as a mentaler can you imagine what he’d be like in office. Come on Hillary !!!

Glad your trucks okay Miss Rabbit, I'm just waiting for the garage to call me back to see what they can do about my emission problem. This would happen the same month Puddy and her sodding ears have pretty much depleted my bank account.*





*pets Puddy, 'don't worry oldie cat, you're worth it.'

The upside of Mitt Romney or Mike Huckabee winning the Republican nomination is that either one of them running against any of the Democratic candidates would much more likely result in a Democratic win than if McCain made it to the general election. If not, well, then we get our very own theocracy, and one of you Irish had better open up two spots on your sofa or floor for me and my husband next January.

Correct me if I"m wrong but isn't Mormonism another of those made up religions? Made up by a farmer called Joe Smith in 1830, who saw angels and believed in magic underpants?
I'm willing to lay odds that in a few more years there will be scientologists running for election. And worse, people will vote for them.
By the by, anyone see Tom Cruise's latest crazy video, that chap is dolally.

You know what I always wanted to know (You probably don’t but I’m going to ponder aloud anyway). You know how we have say the more traditional religions like Jewish, Catholicism, Presbyterian etc. How come religions such as Muslim, Mormons, Scientology (I mean come fucking on a Hollywood director), Take That oitis and the likes were not just deemed cults? Clearly these people are brainwashed, I know the likes of the Catholic Church where guilty of this for some time but it evolved and its followers continue to drop like flies. How are these new religions continuing to grow? Has free will finally come around and bit the arse off us. If you have a void that needs filling do some charity work.

Cruise is apparently going nuts because that was a video that was only supposed to be shown to fellow nutcases *ahem* scientologists. I just love the expression 'wild and wooly'. Need to work it into a sentence somehow today...

FMC you're right, I'm just not stretching enough. Will be from now on!

I DO think they're all cults, it's just they've been around longer so they're taken as 'norm' by many.
I mean I've NEVER understood how slicing the foreskin of a perfectly healthy baby is anything other than a vicious assault on a defenseless child. And confession? Give me a break. Covering your hair because it brings you closer to god, who theoretically gave you the damn hair in the first place. Celibacy? Nonsense.
I was raised catholic and sent to a catholic boarding school and from the youngest of ages I always thought it was all hocus pocus. Still do.

Yes Lou, stretch them babies out and good luck to you!

regarding mormonism, i was good friends with a girl who's family is mormon (she was a lesbian, so banned from the church) and i have NEVER met a nicer bunch of people in my life. sure, i don't agree with their religion, but they were literally 'the perfect family'. in fact, i've met a lot of mormons and you just can't hate them after talking to them - just feel bad that such nice people believe what they do.

interestingly, south park does some fairly factual skits on both scientology and mormonism - worth the watch (www.stansdad.com)

as for the election, i'm jealous that the UK gets decent coverage, even if you all are sick of it. we get sweet fuck-all for news here in montana. to be honest, (barring rigged elections and another florida debacle) i would be *very* surprised to see a republican candidate in office. our house is pulling for obama all the way... as are some republican households in our neighborhood. we'll convert them all soon enough ;)

I wouldn't hate anyone because of their religion, nor doubt their basis goodness or niceness, but I do question the loopier aspects of their beliefs.

Blogger daisy mae said...

ah sorry 'bout that, FMC - i throw the word hate around a little too loosely. i couldn't hate someone based strictly off their religion. but knowing someone's religious beliefs has a tendency (either good or bad) to make me more skeptical of what they're saying.

Cate, unfortunatly my car is so low down that when I do the "dazzle position" the stupid bastards with the shitty headlights don't get the desired dazzle effect. The last time I put on the fogs the bastards put on their full beams so now I just get out of the car and pint frantically at their lights, I may look stupid but hell, it gives me some satisfaction.

Miss Cat Newbie is Jewish, from Israel by affliction and not choice (I hope). You seriously put the wind up me I rang him and gave him a piece of my mind. His reply was, “Ok, ok calm down now, lets take this one step at a time, are we pregnant?” after I assured him we most certainly were not, he said “Ohhhh phew, do some work” then he hung up. Rest assured mutilating any future son’s ding-a-ling is out. Fucking perves. And Muslims, don’t get me started, any religion formed by a man claiming to be a prophet so he could justify colonizing other countries and wreaking a reign of terror on it’s inhabitants is simply a pragmatic wanker and not a disciple of Allah. If you believe in God, fine, but infringing on the free will of others in the name of your God, fuck off with yourself. I do think this new “grab a God trend” is down to a lack of fulfilment in the lives of the easily lead. Look at Tom, has everything he could ever wish for what’s left only to find God.

Aren't most religions started by some man somewhere or other? Certainly christianity was and the muslim faith is, so is the jewish faith.
Seems women get a raw deal in most religions. We're not chaste enough, or spiritual enough, we bleed, we're fertile, why damn us all we're practically just 'helpmates'.

Many of the older, polytheistic 'pagan' religions regarded women as being divine due to their ability to create life.
Modern witchcraft also places alot of importance on women.

Go back to the days of the druids, I say.

Or we could just take a sort of secular look at things and do away with hocus pocus all together.
Either way, I have cheered my self. I am watching Black Books on You Tube and tee-heeing like my demented Auntie when she thinks she's got one over on the neighbours. Yes I should be working, buy yah boo sucks, it will have to wait until after dinner.

Cults are the price we pay for the absence of football, the PS2 and the WII in the lives of men in times past. They had nothing to occupy their time with so went about creating farcical religions. Men are the ruination of civilized society they are perpetrators of most crimes against humanity. When I am Queen, they will be kept in the wardrobe for the breathing season and off course nightly fun and frolics.
