Tagged - Yet A-fricking-gain

This last month seems to have been very interesting in regards to tags, questionnaires and general memes that float around on the internet. And they all seem to have landed here. Interesting...

This is - I swear - the last I will do for 2006. No more in the coming week-and-a-bit, I shall save any other taggage until at least January 1st. I know there's not been much actual content of late, but dammit, I've been busy! We re-re-did the computer room last night, so my new desk is in place. Dickhead - I mean, Person X now has a new computer, phoned for help this morning to which I took great pleasure in saying "Can't help, go phone PC World.." bwhahaha

So anyway - here we have several rather long meme/tag/wotsit thingies. Do them or don't. All the cool people are doing them ;)

OK ...very good that you saved a life (no 149 I think) but hopefully number 150 wasn't the cause.
