New Girl called in sick today, and I was dragged back from oblivion by a phone call at 10 am and asked to do the afternoon shift. Since I was not expecting this, I had quaffed a large portion of the Bailie Nicol Jarvie the night before, intending to spend Saturday recovering from it. Instead I was at work, and I’m at work again tomorrow.
I would have thought it a very bad idea to call in sick after one week in a new job. I’d have dragged myself bleeding to work until I felt secure. I’d even go in with a head full of sand and teeth so fuzzy I had to shave them. Oh wait, I just did that. We (myself and New Girl) are both in probationary periods, at the end of which they decide whether to keep us or not. She just lost some Brownie points but it’s not all bad news. I gained some.
This is why I am utterly knackered tonight and will sleep early even though I don’t start until 1 pm tomorrow. I have some recovering to catch up on immediately after a hair of the dog. Well, okay, probably half a pelt.
Nevertheless, I have not been entirely idle. I’ve been watching this story for comments. Most are sensibly of the opinion that the mother is deranged. Antismokers with an ounce of sense would stay well away from this one but as we have found, there aren’t many with as much sense as that. Sure enough, it didn’t take long for one to show up.
Just goes to prove, smoking does kill.

A child burned to death by his own mother, and the antis cannot resist making smartass comments because the child was smoking. The smoking overrides everything, the smokers must be eradicated by any means and if that means torching your own children, they are happy with it. The encouraging news is that he has been severely red-arrowed. It might mean some drones are finally waking up a little.
This is the Arnott legacy. One-fifth of the population are now legitimate hate targets for the mentally unstable and the eternally spiteful. They are even happy to see children burn in order to satisfy their spite. Anyone want to bring up Godwin now? Might as well, it’s obvious where this is going. Actually it’s not going there. It arrived there some time ago.
[slow handclap] Well done, Dreadful. Well done indeed. When do we start referring to you as Fuhrer? Don’t worry. We already have.
(On a lighter note – the red-lacquered white LED works so it’s now being Araldited into a tube. I’m also hoping to have the first part of Smoke Rider ready for Halloween, even if it’s just the head and torso. No 1/24th bike yet and when I do get one it’s going to need some serious modification, but I have found a way to avoid the ‘fibre out of the back of the head’ problem).
UPDATE More have turned up.
Although this is obviously terrible, what kind of messed up 9 year old smokes!?

They are all so very Righteous, aren’t they? Live life their way or your children will burn and they won’t care at all. These are not people I would knowingly associate with on any level and yet our government, all main parties including SNP, loves them.
Voting time is coming. Are you voting for more hate?
Or would you like to see a little less Nazism in the UK? Your choice.
