Fuck Facebook & Google Reader

Sod work and chickens and housework and visitors.

Damn and blast gardens and lists and dogs and diets.

To hell with killer sudoku and Big Brother.

How would a body ever get time to blog?

You should take up a hobby ;-)

I was thinking of taking up quilting but where would i find the time? And my Singer has rusted from lack of use.

You know, if you were to actually have visitors sod chickens, and blog about it, you could probably get enough traffic to pay for some blogads, thereby gaining enough scratch to pay for a housemaid, freeing you for more Sudoku and gardening.

I wouldn't have any idea about where to begin the chicken-sodding procedure, though. You can probably Google it...

I'm intrigued now. What does 'sod' mean in the United States?

El Capitan said...

Hehehe... It means squares of lawn turf, mostly. I was using the "anglican" form, though. I lift bits of BritSpeak from your comedians (Eddie Izzard, Lenny Henry, Rowan Atkinson) when the mood is upon me...

F'rinstance, "sod off" comes right out of watching Blackadder! Ex. - Baldrick isn't given any sort of first name until this third series, when he speculates that it might be "Sodoff", since in childhood when he said to the other guttersnipes, "Hello, my name's Baldrick," they would reply, "Yes, we know. Sod off, Baldrick!" A diplomatic Blackadder opts to record him as "S. Baldrick"

I wonder if 'sod' or 'sod off' comes from wishing the abusee dead as in 'under the sod'.
