Tonight was the Greetland and Stainland branch quiz night. click here for fascinating Lib Demmery )

Other stuff:
  • There was an amusing bit of advice for Jobseekers in the local rag today. It said that 9/10 jobs are now advertised online, and if you don't have access to the internet you can get free access at your local UK Online centre. To find your local UK online centre, log on to

  • The Geeka Chicas poll is on Trek captains this month. Look to the right sidebar of the linked page and VOTE JANEWAY!

  • Stephen Tall wants me to do a meme. He wants me to name seven reasons why I joined the Lib Dems. There's only one, really. I was drunk, and Mat signed me up, after months of trying to persuade me. I'm bloody glad he did, though. Before I joined, I felt the way a lot of people feel - there's nothing I can do to change things, they're all the same, we'd have been better off if Guy Fawkes hadn't been so cack-handed, etc. etc. et bloody cetera. Now I know I can make a difference, because I have done. I've helped to formulate policy. I've met and spoken to and argued with national political figures. I've helped a winning presidential campaign, and I've become a press and communications officer. None of it has made me any money - the gravy train doesn't seem to stop at Lib Dem stations - but that doesn't matter, because this isn't about me. Well, it is, but it's about you as well. It's about making life that bit less grindingly sucky for ALL of us. And I have a fire in my belly that I can do something about that. So yeah, there was only one reason why I joined. But there's a multitude why I RENEWED.

And now, it's definitely time for bed. I need to digest all this rhubarb. TTYL, lovely bloggy people.

Header Bar.

Right, my task for monday is going to be to make myself a nice header bar for the new blog. There are many things I would want to reference, and I have some ideas as to style and content, but I wondered what images you guys would suggest I include?

Please leave a comment with your suggestions for images that you think epitomise me.
