In between scrawling drabbles, I thought I ought to give you some

Fresh Squeezings From the veins of the Internet

And today's meme is a simple one: answer me a question! Should I go to MPH or the Bike show this year? MPH is more of a spectacle, but the bike show is more fun, I think. In both cases I reckon I could wangle a room with my brother; one of them my brother will want to go to, the other my dad. What do you guys reckon?

Hir feed isn't truncated - or at least it isn't when read in Google Reader... I suspect it's a DW issue...

Looks fine to me - if you look, it has a summary followed by the full text - exactly as mine does - http://andrewhickey.info/feed is exactly the same format, and I know my settings are to have the feed be full text...

And indeed, looking at http://jazzhandssrsbsnss-feed.dreamwidth.org/ the full articles are there as well. Might be something to do with your reading page...

And just the other I said if there was going to be a poll putting us ahead of Labour it would have happened by now. Delighted to be proved wrong, even if it is only a post-Conference bounce.

Mind you, I'm not sure I entirely trust that BBC story:
It is the first time Labour have been in third place since February 1982, when they were on 33% compared to 34% for the Liberal-SDP Alliance.
That would have left at most 33% for Thatcher's Tories, and Labour in joint second at worst.

No, that looks about right, Thatcher was in serious trouble in the very early 80s, big recession, etc--she bought reelection with the Falklands. Studied '83 at close level as part of the degree, some very weird stuff going on in the poll.

Hang on, no they couldn't have been in 3rd place if they were beating Thatcher, but the alliance did top 50% at one point in the polling cycle.

I've found the bike show disappointing recently - unless it's got loads better, I'm going to have to say MPG, in an entirely unexpected reversal from me.
