MadTV: The journal

Chavs nil, Mad three.

I had quite a weekend (yes I know I'm writing about it on Wednesday but I didn't feel like blogging before this).

I took Friday off and just enjoyed myself swaning around the back lanes on my Bandit 400 and looking at bike shops. The weather was lovely.

Saturday I rode down to Hemel Hempstead (75 miles away) to look at a Kawasaki Z750 I'd found on Bike Trader. I've never ridden the little 4 that far before and I must say she did very well - even on the M1 on the way home.

The Z750 in Hemel was superb:
Black (black ones are fasterer).
950 miles (not even quite run in!).
£300 Meta alarm/immobiliser system (I get to press a blipper thingy).
Tyres have puncture sealant in them (peace of mind).
Lovely BT012 tyres.
Handles like a BMX.
Pulls like a train!
Plus the guy (who was really nice) was selling it way below list price. I loved it as soon as I pulled away on it. It's just right for me, very comfy and confidence inspiring.

So on Sunday morning Andy (thanks Andy) drove me down to Hemel, I handed over a wad of cash and rode home on a mad kwak! I am now a two bike owner!

The end of the weekend was just as exciting it turns out. I got home that evening and had to figure out how to store two bikes at the back of my house. I put the new Z behind the house and chained the Bandit under a cover in the driveway. Later as my paranoia overcame me I decided to look out of the driveway window just to check on the Bandit. It was there but I could hear shouting from the street, which turned out to be three youths pushing an, obviously stolen, motorbike as fast as they could run. Heroically I decided not to give chase (I had no shoes on) and called the Police. An hour later a policeman turned up on my door. They'd caught the offenders and retrieved the bike! Result. All thanks to me. They also annoyed me no end by taking a statement at eleven o'clock at night and then ringing me back at one thirty in the morning. But I'm chuffed I helped catch some bike stealing pond-life.

Yes, don't let your hero status cloud your reckoning of the fundamental physical laws, man.


I'm thinking of inertia here. You do the same. :)

way to go Maddy...geeze can you come stay with me for a time.. could use a watchdog...
after having the cartag stolen on thurs (some time between 2am when I went to bed and 6am when daughter was leaving for work)
the window broken out of the car and stereo taken fri (sometime between 3am when i went to bed and 6am when daugher was leaving for work)
and alas on sat as if they hadn't done enough damage.. the gas cap broken off and all the gas siphoned out of tank (and mind they did this while I was dutifully on guard..lol (for heaven sake people gas prices are on the decline again)
So I really could use such a hero such as yourself so that i can once more have peaceful nights of sleep.

Finally got around to fixing the CSS so that the comment backgrounds work in IE and Firefox. Of course this doesn't explain why it doesn't work in f^%£"*g Opera. Grrr.

LOL - you're such a stinker! And here I had a nice maple-y soap with your name on it ready to send out... nope, not anymore... I think I'll send it someone who thinks I'm mean and obnoxious;)

Mad
Yeah, I completely see your logic there. I think you're nice so you'll give it to someone who thinks you're mean...Yes. .o0(She is nice though)

vanessa
just kiddin' - I haven't even made it yet! :P How's that for mean? lol In all honesty though, I do have all the ingredients, and it WAS inspired by you so I'll begrudgingly send you a bar when they cure - how's that? ;)

Mad
Sounds lovely Pix... um what are they going to cure? The common cold? .o0(Something inspired by me! How cool's that? I wonder if this means Mounty soap is next?)
Date Added: 23/09/2005

vanessa
Curing just gives you a harder bar that last longer... gentler too. Mounty soap? Um... I don't think sooooo... what would it smell like? A horse?
Date Added: 23/09/2005

Mad
Duh! It'd smell of Mounties of course. :D

vanessa
Hmmmm... I think that would require some hands-on research dontcha think? ;)

Bike stealing filthy chav scum, well done for stopping them.
At least it wasn't a Z750 they were nicking.

THERE IS MOUNTING EVIDENCE THAT HERTS COUNCIL ARE ON A MAJOR LAND GRAB EXERCISE AND THEY ARE PREPARED TO BEND THE LAW INTO ANY SHAPE THEY CHOOSE TO GET WHAT THEY WANT.
THE EXPLOSION AND HERTFORDSHIRES QUOTA FOR 6,000 NEW HOMES IN THE DACORUM AREA MAY BE LINKED. AFTER ALL, THE RESIDENT HAVE BEEN COMPLAINING FOR AGES THAT THEY CAN SMELL PETROL FUMES. LET ME PUT IT THIS WAY: YOU SMELL GAS, YOU CALL THE GAS BOARD AND THE MATTER IS TREATED WITH GREAT URGENCY AS YOUR HOUSE COULD EXPLOD. EVEN AN IDIOT (WHICH HERTS COUNCIL CLEARLY ARE NOT) WOULD ALLOW PETROL FUME REPORTS TO GO UNADDRESSED. EVEN CHILDREN KNOW THAT PETROL FUMES ARE HIGHLY INFLAMABLE AND WILL EXPLODE ALL THE WAY BACK TO THEIR SCOURCE. SO DID THE COUNCIL ALLOW AN EXPLOSION TO GET THE LAND? ITS CLEAR THE DEPOT WONT BE REBUILT AND ITS A PRETTY CONVENIENT SOLUTION TO AQUIRING MORE BUILDING LAND AT A CRUCIAL TIME FOR HERTS COUNCIL. IF YOU THINK THAT IS FAR FETCHED CONSIDER THAT THEY HAVE 'LAND GRABBED' BOVINGDON FIRE STATION STRAIGHT AFTER THE EXPLOSION, ALSO CONSIDER THIS: THERE ARE PLANS UNDERWAY TO SIEZE THE LAND HELD BY WENDY FAIR MARKETS IN BOVINGDON UNDER THE NEW CRIMINAL EARNINGS SIEZURE LAWS. THE DIRECTORS OF BOVINGDON MARKET HAVE BEEN ARRESTED UNDER ORDER OF HERTS COUNTY COUNCIL BY THE POLICE AND CHARGED WITH MONEY LAUNDERING BY WAY OF ALLEGEDLY ALLOWING PIRATED GOODS TO BE SOLD ON THE MARKET. THIS WOULD MEAN A HUGE LAND GRAB FOR HERTS COUNCIL. THERE IS ENOUGH ROOM FOR HUNDREDS OF HOUSES AND ENOUGH LEFT OVER FOR YET ANOTHER "ESSENTIAL" GIANT SHOPPING CENTRE.
WHAT REALLY STINKS ABOUT THIS AMAZINGLY CRAFTY LAND GRAB IS THAT A FEW PEOPLE WHO WERE SELLING PIRATES AT THE MARKET HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH WENDY FAIR AND INSTEAD OF BEING TAKEN TO COURT SEPERATLY THEY ARE ALL GOING TO BE TRIED AS A GROUP. THIS SLY MOVE ENSURES THAT THEY ALL APPEAR TO GIVE EVIDENCE AGAINST ONE ANOTHER IN THEIR DEFENCES. THIS IS A FIRST IN BRITISH LAW HISTORY. ADD TO THIS THE FACT THAT HERTFORDSHIRE COUNCIL HAVE CLAIMED THEY HAVE 180 WITNESS STATEMENTS AGAINST THE STALL HOLDERS AND WENDY FAIR MARKETS AND YOU BEGIN TO WONDER WHY 180 WITNESSES WOULD BE NEEDED FOR ANY TRIAL WHATSOEVER LET ALONE THE HIGH TREASON OF SELLING SOME PIRATE GOODS AT A MARKET.
IT GETS WORSE: THERE IS FACTUALLY NO COMPLAINANT AGAINST THESE PEOPLE CONCERNING ANY PIRACY OF COPYRIGHT OR TRADEMARKS YET THE COUNCIL HAVE BOUGHT A PROSECUTION. ITS A BIT LIKE SOMEONE PINCHING SOMETHING FROM YOU ANDF YOU JUST DONT BOTHER PERSUING IT AND THEN THE COUNCIL COME ALONG ARREST THAT PERSON UNDER CRIMINAL LAW AND HAVE ALL THEIR ASSETS SIEZED AND AWARDED TO THE COUNCIL. YES THEY AWARD ANY SIEZURES TO THEMSELVES. AND IT STILL GETS WORSE: BELIEVE IT OR NOT THE PROCEEDS SIEZED BEFORE PROSECUTION ARE SHARED 50 - 50 BETWEEN THE POLICE AND HERTFORDSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL. YEP THE NEO NAZIS HAVE LANDED!

THE COUNCIL ARE TAKING AWAY ALL THE AMENITIES
The Pavillion GONE
The Boxmoor Arts Centre GONE
The Paddling Pool Gone
The Council Closed the paddling Pool because it cost them £17,000 a year
THE LAND GRAB AND ITS METHODS ARE TRULY AMAZING!
