It seems like only yesterday, but apparently it was three years ago that I mentioned an interesting trend in spam comments: the insulting spam. Well, I was once again having a quick look through the spam and came across this gem:
of course like your website but you have to take
a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very bothersome
to inform the reality however I’ll surely come back
Line breaks are as found in the original. Now I’ll be the first to admit to the occasional typo, and the occasional bit of unintentional damage caused by auto-correct, but I have to say I find it very bothersome to inform the spammer that they really need to take a look at the grammar in their attempts to get backlinks…

 For instance, that started to come out as “damit”
Despite having slept for a few hours yesterday afternoon, I was tired enough for bed at 10pm or thereabouts to be a Good Thing last night. And apart from waking up briefly, I slept through to almost 7am. And then went to sleep again, waking up properly at some time after 9am.
I’ve had a mostly relaxed day, apart from doing a pile of ironing. Now all I’ve got to do is pack my bags…
Oh, and my weight will have to remain a mystery for a bit.
After yesterday’s photo-deficient report, here’s one I did earlier. This is a detail from the Stan Laurel statue in Bishop Aukland

 Note to self: when past self decides that future self can do the ironing next weekend, past self should bear in mind that future self might possibly have a case of the lurgy and not be appreciative of having to do two lots of ironing.
