WHY are Mersey Ferries so utterly USELESS? Last Saturday, I wanted a simple crossing to Liverpool, but I was given a compulsory "cruise" (yeah right!) down the Mersey estuary as far as New Brighton.
What the hell is the point of the ferries going to New Brighton if they no longer let passengers disembark there?
The "cruise" came with a running commentary about the sewage works on Bootle docks plus a load of tourism crap about the awful, desperate museums run by Merseytravel, the ones that feature displays about extraterrestrials and an old Nazi submarine.
I'VE only been on Facebook for a few weeks - and already I'm thinking of having a cull of my female "friends" because some of them are being so very dull. Let me explain...
On the Facebook home page where one's "friends" post their "status" i.e. statements of how they are feeling or what they are doing, so many of the thoughts expressed are mind-numingly banal.
And "yes" those are mainly the ones from women "friends" I've somehow acquired.
"Stop the World - I Want to Get Off" is a cliché, I must admit, and also the name of one of those hideous, middlebrow stage musicals.
But right now that expression sums up exactly how I feel. Our modern world of information overload and false imperatives is just ... too much. So tiring and BORING!
Please, you extraterrestrials, land here, and change things!
Otherwise, take me away from Earth and let me try living on your world.
