Intimations of mortality

It was bad enough having a leader of the Tory party who is younger than me (if only by a few months), but having a 37 year old as the new editor of the Daily Telegraph is not far from robbing me of the will to live.

Dont worry C , most of us are abject failures who live in shit houses and have crap sex lives.
Not me of course, I live in a mansion and have sex with beautiful women every night in my ferrari bed, then I jump into a huge pit of cocaine and field calls from the head of the CIA and Putin.

Lucky old you Peter.

And very gracious of you to take time out from your sybaritic existence to post here. Sounds more entertaining than Canon Sydney Smith's preference: "My idea of heaven is eating pates de foie gras to the sound of trumpets."

Actually im sat here in my captains chair in boxers and a t shirt working from home.
I know what you mean , its called a mid life crisis.
My current thing is to check out men of my age group (in a non gay way)on tv or in the newspapers and wonder if I look that old. Simon Cowell/sting /jonatnan ross give me hope others reduce me to deep depression.

just start reeading the daily mail.I do and it keeps me young and suitably right wingriggermortice  

Blogger Rigger Mortice said... 4:56 pm

still no sidebar BTW  

Blogger Croydonian said... 5:07 pm

WAY too much detail Peter. I think I look less battered than Mike Tyson, who is my exact contemporary.

RM - I read the Guardian to keep my blood pressure at suitable crisis pitch levesl. No links, no archives, nada? Are you using Internet Exporer or another browser? The sidebar seems to jump around in IE, judging from a test just now. If it doesn't appear at the top, it is lurking at the foot. Scroll down to find it and then it repositions itself. Maybe the blog needs an exorcism.

Mr mortice
if you click "post a comment" the side bar appears(for coments)
if its the normal sidebar that is missing then we will have to put that down to the fact that croydonian is of an age where simple ready formatted weblog formats are beyond him (i include myself in that group)

This is sobering news. I think I shall have my man iron The Telegraph twice each morning.

I think I shall have my man read it out to me while my personal trainer is giving me my morning workout.

I think I will continue to retrieve it from the letter box and peruse it in between brewing coffee and snorting at the Today programme.

Since we seem to have similar views on environmentalism, I thought you might enjoy the positive proof of global warming.

most interesting. remember that in the past you had to remove the nickers to see the bottom and now you have to do the opposite

A brave thought

and aren't the policemen looking young these days . . . timor mortis aside, is there any inside track on this whippersnapper? might he do something to reverse the DT decline or is dumbing down inevitable to reach a 'new generation' of readers?  

Blogger Croydonian said... 11:03 pm

PCZ - hello. I can't find out anything about the new bod at the DT.
