Take That: ‘Williams can join us for a song’

Published by:

Boyband Take That are thrilled to be touring again next year with or without Robbie Williams
– but they insist he is welcome to join them for a song if he feels the urge.
The remaining foursome – Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Howard Donald
– will tour major UK stadiums for the reunion which marks 10 years since their split.
Even though Williams refused to rejoin the band which rocketed him to fame, he is starting to feel left out.
Orange says, “I spoke to Robbie a couple of times last week, he’s delighted for us and, I think, a bit wistful.”
Owen adds, “If he wants to come up and sing a song, he’s more than welcome.”

As if Robbie Williams would return to that bunch of washed out wannabe’s.

Who Says Men Don’t Remember Anniversaries?

Published by:

A woman awakes during the night to find that her husband was not in their bed. She puts on her robe and goes downstairs to look for him. She finds him sitting at the dinning room table with a cup of coffee in front of him. He appears deep in thought, just staring at the wall. She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip of coffee.
“What’s the matter, dear?” she whispers as she steps into the room, “Why are you down here at this time of night?”
The husband looks up, “Do you remember 20 years ago when we were dating, and you were only 18?” he asks solemnly.
The wife is touched to tears thinking that her husband is so caring and sensitive. “Yes, I do” she replies.
The husband pauses. The words are not coming easily. “Do you remember when your mother caught us behind the couch making love?”
“Yes, I remember.” says the wife, lowering herself into a chair beside him. The husband continues…”Do you remember when she shoved a shotgun in my face and said, “Either you marry my daughter, or I will send you to jail for 20 years?'”
“I remember that too.” she replies softly.
He wipes another tear from his cheek and says… “I would have gotten out today.”

External blogging client & MT 3.2

XML-RPC and Atom client setup
For those of you who use an external blogging client or anything that uses Movable Type’s XML-RPC or Atom APIs, you have to do one more step (detailed in the entry “Getting started with MT 3.2”) after upgrading to get your clients working again

  • Log into MT
  • Click on your username in the top navbar to go to your profile
  • Scroll down to the bottom where you see “API Password”
  • Input the password of your choice and save. For security reasons, it should be different from your normal password
  • Use that password in your client software

    SITE NOTICE

    Published by:

    I’m currently having my new MT templates made for me by www.stylegeek.net. This means that the layout of my site will change slightly.
    At present my MT templates have been altered to make MT look like my site but this means if I want to change the layout of my site I have to change the files outside of MT and the one’s inside MT as well. Once my new templates have been installed, my whole site will be configured from within MT and will cut down on administration time.
    During the change over some parts of my site might vanish for a while but once things have settled down, my site should return to normal.

    An Irishman’s been drinking

    Published by:

    An Irishman’s been drinking at a pub all night. The bartender finally says that the bar is closing. So the Irishman stands up to leave and falls flat on his face. He tries to stand one more time, same result. He figures he’ll crawl outside and get some fresh air and maybe that will sober him up. Once outside he stands up and falls flat on his face. So he decides to crawl the
    4 blocks to his home and when he arrives at the door, he stands up and falls flat on his face. He crawls through the door into his bedroom. When he reaches his bed, he tries one more time to stand up. This time he manages to pull himself upright but he quickly falls right into bed and is sound asleep as soon as his head hits the pillow. He awakens the next morning to his wife standing over him shouting loudly. “So, you’ve been out drinking again!!”
    “What makes you say that?” He asks as he puts on an innocent look. “The pub called, you left your wheelchair there again you thick twat!!”

    I’ve been Blue Witch’ed

    Published by:

    Last night I had great pleasure in meeting Blue Witch & Mr Blue Witch at one of their outdoor gatherings.
    I must admit I was a little nervous at first but after chatting to BW and guests from “blog land”, I started to feel at home and was totally amazed at BW’s Coven which is very cosy.
    We had a fab evening trying to find items in BW’s garden for the quiz, even with my bad spelling I managed to name a few object and yes, “near green house” is a perfectly good answer for N :o).
    While BW’s I had a nice little supprise, a little four legged person who BW looked after turned up, I thought he was lovely, really friend little chap and i never knew a little four legged person would like cheese :o).
    Thank you BW & Mr BW for a lovely evening, I hope we can do it again soon.
