      I’m just tucking into a Bombay Sapphire as we speak, still at work so I must sack myself in the morning.

        Greenalls over here. Been a while since I hooked into the gin. Tell your boss to get fucked.

        • Yeah, then draw a cock and balls on someones head. Or get out a razor and go eyebrow hunting.

    Happy new year everyone.

  • P1LL

    I hope that you will all have peace, love and harmony in your life in 2013

  • As I report for duty this morning, what do I see? Poulson passed out against the server. Someone’s written “Sysop” on his forehead with a marker.

    Happy New Year indeed! :)

    There’s no point in me wishing you anything, because 2013 will end up
    being what you make of it yourself, alongside things you (and I) can’t
    do anything about.

    Happiness, success and prosperity, and overcoming adversity, none of
    these things are given with hopes and wishes. Blogs and tweets and
    status updates today won’t change your future.

    Look for good, and do good, and your 2013 will be better than it otherwise would have been.

    2013 is another opportunity to enjoy life and share life.

    Your 2013 is up to nature, it is up to country wide and world wide
    influences, it is up to your community and your family. And it’s up to

    Ultimately your 2013 will be what you make of it.


  • Happy New Year to all. No hangover for me this morning. I am well aware that my powers of recovery have diminished with age, and take the necessary steps to avoid hangovers most of the time!

    May 2013 be a bumper year for all, and especially for the Slater clan.

    Health & happiness to all. Best wishes for 2013…

    Sheep and uncle Matt wish a very happy new year to all Tory bros and remind them that they are one year away from grabbing power.
