I spent ยฃ44 on a radio the other week and it's already broken down. I kind of expected better from Sony.

The radio still plays, but the screen has stopped showing any information, so you have to "guess" what radio station you're tuned into.

I need a new radio, because I can't sit here working in silence all day, but I can't really afford another ยฃ44 at this point in my life.

Look at these beautiful visualisations of (US) radio stations and their service areas - more interesting than it sounds:

I took out a student package for my mobile phone to save money, but now I get all the marketing crap aimed at 18-year-old idiots.

Do I want a "free Love Island style water bottle"? Why yes, yes I do.

Today's the day I get my new boiler and get to put the heating on again ๐Ÿ˜ฐ

A neighbour whose house backs onto mine has a dog, which she kicks out of the house every morning for it to do its business.

Unfortunately, the dog is called Abi.

So every morning, if I'm still in bed at 7:30, I hear "Abi! Go on! Out!"

Clothes shopping online. The website still has "Christmas Jumpers" as a prominent option on the menu.

I can imagine them sitting at Asos HQ going "hmm, Christmas jumper sales have gone down quite a bit in the past few weeks, what's with that?"

Sultans of Ping F.C. - Where's Me Jumper

"My brother knows Karl Marx
He met him eating mushrooms in the people's park
He said, "What do you think about my manifesto?"
"I like your manifesto, put it to the test-o"
Took it straight down to meet the anarchist party
I met a groovy guy, he was arty-farty
He said, "I know a little Latin: anicus anicae"
Said, "I don't know what it means," he said, "Neither do I"

I should have looked up the meaning of the name Abigail before I, er, changed my name.

According to Wikipedia, it's Hebrew for "my father's joy". Ironic, considering how he feels about me being trans.

There's a house near my house with an alarm that goes off all. the. time.

If you want to start robbing houses, surely that's the one you'd start with.

Think about it, it's the perfect crime. You break in, the alarm goes off, no one goes "hey, that house alarm is going off, must investigate!". They just go "that bloody alarm", close the window and go back to sleep. ๐Ÿšจ

Better get transitioning to save the UK high street.

They're really hammering "join the police" ads on the radio. You've got until 20 January to apply, apparently. In case you want to be a tool of the state oppressor etc etc
