Our mission

Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

Passing Shadows

The ShadowLands is currently battling the flu, which may slow us down for a few days. In the meantime:

* Some years ago, KFC launched a summer advertising campaign in Australia for a "Cricketer's Box" meal apparently unaware that cricketers refer to this piece of apparatus as a "box". Now we are seeing another advertising campaign with the potential for cultural misunderstandings.

* Life is awesome in Pyongyang, with dancing parties being the order of the day.

* A dumber than usual Price is Right contestant.

* Scroll down to see how to win Prince of Peugeot.

So mini? You think you are some kind of a computer expert because you managed to reinstall Windows once!
I'm not alone having difficulty reading with MM's blog at times, and have no problem with any other.
Don't be so condescending you puffed up conceited arshole!

Well wishes.
Margo will have to get another 'woman in three times a week'? ;)'

"... you puffed up conceited ars[e]hole ..."
Not being a Windows expert, I have no idea what you might be inferring.

Lots of things happening and MM has flu, while the Bolta has tagged along to Israel with Julia and Peter - the latter must be wondering about his timing too!
Back to work tomorrow MM?

If I were a dog they would have put me down, but am slowly on the improve. Posting to recover slowly.

That advertizing campaign should provide much amusement there in Oz. Considering the use of slang in Strine there will be unfortunate cultural misunderstandings in any attempt to communicate between English speakers and Strine speakers.
