Please Enter Your PIN

I have a problem with Sky+. Now, you cannot playback a programme before the watershed if it was recorded after the watershed, without entering your PIN number.

I can't remember my PIN number so I phone my seven year old who is at some party or other at his nan's.

"You really are a forgetful old fucker," he says. "How many fucking times do I have to tell you, the numbers are the same as my fucking birthday: 1011."

"Oh, Christ. Happy birthday, son," I say.

"It's a bit fucking late now," he says.

Geoff's Thumb Rating: Thumb down.


  1. A touching scene. What a lovely family-unit you must all be.

  2. Dear Geoff,

    Something else that is arguably a bit fucking late is this notification that sadly I’ve had to delete Toasty’s Futon. BUT it should reappear by the end of the month at a slightly different URL, and there will in the end be a full archive attached, so all is not lost. I’ll keep you posted.

    Would have included you in my round-robin email to all the people who’ve linked to the Futon, but can’t seem to find an email address on your site. (Now why didn’t I think of that?)

    Best regards,

    T. Lundqvist (Mrs)

    Look forward to seeing the Futon again.

    In a fit of gregariousness I have now acquired a new email address for the use of bloggers and their families. I will email you to test it out.
