Further to my post below

I took the 'horrible' test, and it made me laugh.

See the results...

I am Ebola. Hear Your Organs Squelch.
Which Horrible Affliction are you?
A Rum and Monkey disease.

Boredom

I got a bit bored at work, is a horrible day, raining and windy. I can't face going into town to buy a sandwich so thought, I would create an entry that is made up of links, don't know why really, I just thought it would give me something to do. All the same words link to the same link but no two different words link to the same site. I have chosen to add a link that was interesting after doing a google search on each of the words. This is possibly the saddest thing I have done, but I have a lot of time on my hands.

Daisy's day

Is Daisy Dunkeld's birthday today, she is one. Time flies by, doesn't seem possible that she can be one already, and that's coming from a warlord of time.

Happy birthday DD xxx

Time for another future cat

Have added another one to the list...

Time travel of sorts

Sometimes it would seem that elements of sandwiches can time travel, take for example, yesterday's bread, next weeks's ripe avacado, 3 days ago mozzarella, and last month's mayonnaise. How come they all managed to get into my sandwich today!?

Not sure I agree with these results...

According to this, I don't think I should be a warlord of time

More cats anyone?

Have added a few more links in the well loved cats section if you want to have a looksee. I've noticed that statistically cats seem to like names beginning with 'M', just something I thought I'd share with you.

Two things to do if you fancy

Come worship me and then visit my grave...

Thanks (I think) to Stuart for those.

It's not always a good idea

Sometimes it's not a good idea to go back in time, especially to Sat, 5 Mar 1994 00:20:20 GMT

I first saw this many years ago, and it's never nice to revisit it if I'm honest!

I couldn't resist

Had to become one of the in crowd after all

Pure evil, that's me!

you are nero
One of the most evil men alive. The last of the five Julio-Claudian emperors. He killed his own mother, tutor, and wife. Nero cared for no one and nothing, even dressing up at night to go and kill random people in the streets. It's said that he started the fire that burned Rometo the ground.

What Julio-Claudian Roman Emperor are you?

Time machine my arse!

Not really very good is it

Things have just got weird...

Are the contributors of this conversation people I know? There are names I recognise and topic seems to be very familiar...

I completely agree

While there are many people out there who purport to be time travellers, there are only actually a handful of Warlords of time. Well, I only know of five, myself and Chronomochron and his family of mini warlords but, as you can imagine, we can be anywhere at anytime so it's not surprising we don't bump into one another.

Oh by the way, Chronomochron is a bit of a megalomaniac and I don't agree with his use of time travel. His wife and kids are lovely though.

Anyone got a Dimensional Warp Generator?

Hope this chap managed to get what he was after

Practice for pool

As you know, I went to play pool with Stuart last night and you can read all about it on 9-ball blog. I must say I could have tinkered with time to get a bit more practice in, but that would be wrong on two counts:

1) Using my time travelling abilities for that would be abusing my position as Warlord of time

2) It gets tiring going back and forth all day squeezing in the extra hour here and there, by the time I'd got enough practice in, I would have done a 70 hour day.

Oh, and for all of those who ask, 'surely you can go back again and sleep it off?' the answer is yes, but then I wouldn't have time to put in the practice, so I would have to go back again to do that, savvy?

Victory's space trip

I think 'trip' is a very appropriate word for this little story

Well well well...

Stuart has invited me to join his and Satan's 9-Ball blog I am playing pool with Stuart tonight so will be posting there anon...

A dragon you say?

This is what I was (guess warlord wasn't an option), what about you?

Dragon Banner
You're a dragon. You're smart and cunning, and enjoy taking risks. Your need for independence is an advantage, but sometimes it alienates you from others. As far as *good* and *evil*, you're pretty neutral--but you may have something of a wicked streak.

Let that be a lesson to you all

Do not overclock your PC, it could be dangerous

We do have rules you know.

What a pickle

Am wondering whether I should find out how to reply to this and give them a hand. They must be feeling very desperate.
