Cable ties, cable ties

To be sung to the tune of 'Edelweiss'

Cable Ties, Cable Ties
Used for tying up cables
Small and white, ties them tight
Use in your roof or your gables

And so on. Suggestions for further verses will be... er, ignored, probably.

The first one - why bother?

I woke up this morning (dah der dah dah dum)... sorry, the blues is upon me.

It occurred to me that during the course of a working day in my office we spout an incredible amount of random garbage, and occasionally some of it can be quite funny. "Why not", I reasoned, "start a blog. The internet is awash with them, surely my collection of nonsense will stand out like a shiny thing in a dark place". And so here we are.

My vision is as follows: a list entitled "Things we have mostly been talking about", and rants pertaining to things that make me want to rant. I'll probably get bored within the week, but hey, maybe some kindly publisher will happen upon my writings and give me a six-figure book deal. Mmm-hmm.
