Well, what a silly old Hector I have been. I left home on 27th December for Cyprus by way of Basel and Gatwick, where a night was to be spent, and indeed was spent, in the Pod hotel known to the uninitiated as the Yotel Gatwick. which is my home from home on many occasions. That however may well have been where I left my iPad charger and three-pin adapter. Whether it was or not, by the time we got to Budapest (delays, I'll spare you the TRAVEL CHAOS AND MISERY bollocks) I hadn't got it, so rapid and I hope temporary death of iPad and extremely limited opportunities for online activity without it. All I can say is that it has been character building to have to go without. Sig other has a netbook, which in fact I bought him for Christmas 2008 and which he let me use from time to time during our lovely few days in (mostly) sunny Cyprus, an island I love very much and which is MINE, but I do not like it (the netbook). Screen too small, and how am I supposed to manage without all that lovely finger activity (hem hem). So, anyway, thank you to all the bloggers who have given me fun and pleasure in 2010, most of you know who you are, but if not then I am sorry I did not tell you, you were always on my mind, really you were.
So, have a wonderful 2011, wouldn't it be nice if the media, especially the Guardianista wing of it, did not flip a stupid button in otherwise sensible people's brains. I will leave you with this. Elections, democracy, all of that jivin' around (prize for the song reference there) apparently BAD. Yes, really. So let's put a stop to them. Yes, NOW. Before The People start getting Ideas.
