I have to confess to punching the air during the ten o’clock news last night at the news that prostate ,1602258,00.html”>Harriet Miers has withdrawn her name from the US Supreme Court shortlist (I was still a little over-emotional from what happened to the old Commie at the end of Spooks, don’t look at me like that!) .

This is obv a really hard day for me, I was super excited about being a Justice. I was looking at my very first blog post and it made me cry. But this day isn’t about me. Its about all of us. And I have to say… Thank You.

The bezzer made an interesting point in a comment on my last post:

I’m just glad Kate’s getting out of rehab because it gives the papers another excuse to print photos of her and therefore brighten up my commute. But that’s why Lola is a better lesbian than I’ll ever be.

My plans for tonight have just backed out on me – I was supposed to be buying the boy-bezzer dinner to celebrate his newly-aquired 23 years of age. I have an offer to go out in Paisley for what will undoubtedly be a couple of gins and a bag of chips on the way home before my Friday night televisual routine, but that means I’ll have to find a birthday present for him between here and the train station.

MOAR LYG:  no friend of mine;

Meh. Have a good weekend.

    it’s a hollow victory- she was rejected by the right wing of a right wing party for not being right wing enough, and would have only served as a lapdog to bushes mediocre right wing policies.

    I’m still alarmed at your readiness to go to Paisley- at night…*shudders*
