Thanks, chaps. Unfortunately, my work is so specialised that there's hardly even a formal application process to get a job - it's mostly down to who you know. There are only three companies in the country that employ people for any length of time, and they're all in the doldrums. The one I'm at (the...

But why do you think you deserve more redundancy money than someone who has been flipping burgers for the same amount of time? It's just slightly deflating to realise that your employer sees you as blue-collar labour when you always saw yourself as a white-collar pro. But - as a Quentin T. characte...

Out on ear

I've just been made redundant. Any gems of advice from anyone? They're offering two weeks pay for each year of service, which apparently is much the same as I'd get if I'd been flipping burgers for the last nine years. This is annoying, since I work in TV in what I've always considered a skilled and...

What have we here? It smells of beer
And looks like strawberry jam.
Hush hush, my dear, it is your pa
Run over by a tram.

That's not a prophesy. I just like it.

Dr Foster went to Gloucester

In a shower of rain.
He stepped in a puddle
Right up to his middle
And never went there again.

I always knew nursery rhymes were actually coded prophesies about the future.

I didn't even any notice any criticism of Mary Poppins... Stay off the drugs, Pete. I agree with your appreciation of Dick Van Dyke, by the way. That bit where the doddery banker guy takes about a minute to negotiate a six inch step is comedy genius. It's always great when kids' film carry profound ...

Can I be the male lead? I have no acting experience but I like drugs and kissing/battering teenage girls.

Too right. Smug bstard planet-burners. Roll on Congestion Charging.

Having said that, I do sometimes go to the cinema with a Chorlton mate who insists on driving into town in his massive gas-guzzler and paying £6 to park it in the NCP.

As far as I can tell, he posted a glowing review of the film Mary Poppins, which seems out of character with his usual lad-about-town persona. I think he's embarrassed himself by inadvertantly saying something sincere.

If you're really working class you shouldn't need to move house. And working class people born in Chorlton can hardly complain about their house-value shooting up.

I'm loving the whole Paris Hilton saga - it's like a delux version of Brat Camp. We're just getting to the bit where the wretched brat has finally been broken by the first and only implacable authority figure in her life, and is beginning to realise that uncrossable boundaries are maybe not such a b...

They've expended considerable resources to make it so. whipping the world up into a frenzy is better than ...
