Face? Book? Book? Face? Bovvered???

...I joined up, initially only to administer a bollocking to that student bedroom band who seem to think they can get away with calling themselves 'Cardiacs', then I saw that Meenie had been there first and delivered a classy little ass kicking, so I joined the proper Cardiacs facebook group...

...not posted owt yet though...

Our thoughts should be with those who have lost unreplaceable things through flooding...and have a long time to go before things are 'back to normal'... :(

Woah, canoe time baby. I like those kind of pictures, I imagine I would enjoy that, so long as I was insured. I don't want to go on facebook because it's probably just another one of these all garnish and no dinner, "look how many virtual friends I've got", shoulder rubbing cvnt-fests that I sign up to despite myself on the strength of everyone and their ganny telling me how good they are, and end up reading the inane ramblings of some random dropped bollock in the middle of the night, suddenly coming to, thinking to myself "What the FVCK am I doing?" and deleting my account.

i went down last night after i put that photo up-was a bit surreal-the bridge and the street with it was completly flooded and gushing like crazy-this morning i went down and thank god its gone down alot-police let me through over the bridge and the street but the water still came to the top of me wellies after i got over the bridge-looked at in some of the windows of buildings and like pet said-it is horrible to see theres a little piano shop and all the piano'a are screwed- also all of these buildings are century's old.
a mate took a photo with me in the water-if i get the photo i'll bung it on here sometime.
also another part of witney what used to be a 20 foot wide river now's turned into about 80ft-all the surrounding villages are f**ked as well-kinda strange as alot of the roads into witney are flooded-so in a way we're a bit marooned..all very odd?!
