A man pretending to be a horse.
Mikey and I are going to attempt a podcast, maybe this weekend. We haven’t got the faintest idea. We also haven’t got any equipment (bar a 12 year old Compaq mic), any software (bar FIFA 09 on Xbox), or any idea what we’re doing. If it goes well, we’ll stick it on here and on Mikey’s blog (or the ‘I hate o2 website’ as it’s rapidly becoming). Any...
OCD & Apple
I bought an Ipod the other week. One of those 120 gig ones, forsaking the ever sexy ‘Touch’ because of it’s capacity-to-wealth proportion, and a poor chap like me would fill 8 gig in no time at all. I’ve got a PSP as well, and that (if I bought an 8 gig memory card) would perform most of the tasks I would want the Touch to do. Unfortunately, I have now developed a severe...
Some people in crash helmets. We went quad biking yesterday, but in all of the photos and most of the videos there are no quads, so you’ll have to take my word. It was brilliant, I came second (in our ‘heat’) but in the best way possible, only losing due to one shoddy corner. KG dressed up as a human cannonball, and Abi looked the most professional of the lot of us. Must go again...
A selection of us are going quad biking tomorrow, so hopefully in less than 24 hours this feeble site will be plastered with videos and pictures of us covered in muck and falling off with hilarous results. Of the group, I think only myself and 2 others have ever quadded before , so the possibility of chaos is there. Hopefully, this post will serve as notice to Mikey to sort his video thingy out...
Away From Home
You know when they inflate a bouncy castle? It’s just sort of folded up, and doesn’t look very good but it grows and grows and shows more and more promise as it goes on? Glanford Park, Scunthorpe United’s ground, is like a bouncy castle. I fired up the Mondeo on Tuesday night to visit North Lincolnshire to see ‘The Mighty Boro’ play Scunthorpe, or ‘the...
I intend to do some live (live!) Twittering from sunny Scunny today, however I may forget or not be able to due to my limited mobile phone. So, apologies in advance then. Anyway; http://www.twitter.com/petetong79 if I remember and am able.
It starts again tomorrow. 8 months or so of Jamie-fucking-Redknapp spouting shite on a Sunday afternoon, and sometimes trying to crawl up Ruud Gullit’s arse on a Wednesday. Now we (Boro, that is) is no longer part of the self proclaimed greatest league on earth, who, if anyone, should I bothered about? I’d had the idea of picking an official timeisshort team for this season. I...

The Curse of the Extra Letterss
Like the rest of the developed world, I use Facebook. Unfortunately, so do the mentally undeveloped. Can someone please explain to me what the attraction of the extra letterss on thee endd of wordss is forrr? I can’t work it out. Are these people too slow to remember to release their fingers from the keyboard? Do they type as a three-toed sloth might, in lumbering, clumsy prods at random...

That’s me finding out what mercury vapour is. D’oh!
What Twitter Was Made For
The other day, someone had the amazing idea of making football team supporting singers. For example, Sporting Lisbon Jovi, Fiorentina Turner, Bjork City, Manfred Mann-sfield Town and the Galatasaray-ghteous Brothers. My absolute favourite though was the brilliant Gloria Leicesterfan.

Just Getting Older
It’s nine o’clock I’m getting tired I’m sick of all my records And the clothes I bought today Am I cracking up Or just getting older? (Oasis, Just Getting Older) God, the reports that Noel Gallagher lost it post-Morning Glory were massively wide of the mark weren’t they? Anyway, I turned 30 the other day. I’d been quite stressed about this (since I was 21...

Can’t be real, can it? Can someone confirm or deny for me please? Thanks!

This is kind of where I live on the net. Unfunny puns and grammar correcting abounds. But come look! Sometimes I (we) are funny.
Uh-oh. Looks like Mikey (my brother) has got a blog sorted out first. I’m gonna have to go public now, aren’t I? I will keep these ramblings to myself for now, one or two design issues first.
Difficult First Post
Hiya. This is a new blog, by me. I used to be part of the Burnley Wallet, which shut down recently. I quite liked the whole blogging thing, so I wanted to do my own, regardless of how unattended it might be. I suppose I should tell you a bit about me? God this is hard. I like music. I like intelligent films. I like fatty food. I like ‘videogames’ (hngh). I don’t like to blog on...
