Just Like a Woman

On Saturday K8 the Gr8 mentioned a Blog Gender Analyzer (http://www.genderanalyzer.com/), where you type in a blog address and it tells you whether the blog is written by a man or a woman. I entered mine and was informed that there is a 77% chance that I am a woman.

Clearly therefore I am not posting enough pictures of Yelena Isinbayeva

or Maria Sharapova

Clearly also I am not using the words poo, tit, bum or fart enough. Fear not, all of these flaws will be remedied from now on.

Yesterday, though, I forsook the delights of the Manchester derby followed by Chelsea v Arsenal to spend the afternoon at bowling-then-pizza with eight 12-year old girls. Then came back home and ooh’d and aah’d at the bracelets, nail stuff, etc that Tingirl was given by these girls. And then, because it was her birthday, when she put on “The Winner Takes it All – the Story of Abba” I didn’t flee to the kitchen to blog, but stayed and watched it with her – and really enjoyed it.

So I don’t dare take the test again today.

Take Two

First the Medical Cards, then the Income Levy. Despite what Batt O’Keeffe says, the Education cuts will be next to go. It’s not just the teachers who are angry, it’s the parents as well, and he can’t fight everyone.

So this Budget was effectively like a first serve in tennis. If it gets in, well and good, but if there’s anything wrong with it you just forget about it and start again. They’ll head off now and have the details cleared up by, well, December, when the Budget was meant to take place in the first place.

And yes, I’m including a picture of Maria Sharapova. Not gratuitously. I just want to make sure you know it’s Lawn Tennis and not Table Tennis that I’m talking about.

Because there’s no second serve in Table Tennis. So that would be silly.
