Shrugus Shoulderus (Sean Connery)

Lost a fiver today.


It’s alright, don’t feel sorry for me. It was my own fault. Fell out my pocket. Not got a Clouseau where it went. Like Cato the Younger I took this hit with a resigned Hardy look at the fourth wall and remembered the famous Roman quote by Marcus Porcius Cato Uticensis “What’s for you will never go by you.” Though I’m sure it was originally in Latin,

Quid Leatherus testamus numquam Cheerioyou.

  1. Fine musical review on TDS, Bearsy. as for here not always am I stoically-minded. Let me explain. Losing a fiver was nothing compared to losing my Word Press password. There have been numerous instances, BA being the latest casualty, where organisations and websites are hacked and online details compromised. The solution, so they say, is to regularly change passwords. Duly doing what I’m told I methodically alter my log-ins. The problem is, and I’m sure many others are in the same hovercraft, there are so many different websites that need a password it’s easy to forget the odd one or two. After all, you’re not meant to write them down!

    Titanically disastrously I forgot my WP password. The e-mail recovery solution was no use either as I had forgotten my Google check-in boarding pass. Two accounts and both frozen in time. The result of a high turnover of codes. I tried all the combinations and usual names I’d used in the past. Typing in all the numbers and capitals and fancy symbols. Nothing. As a last resort I was going to create a new account until I persevered and managed to fluke one of the passwords. So I’m back in town. Just think of all those magnificent blogs I could have written in the last few months. Time to play Our Tune again.

  2. Too many Catos. It never paid to have a common name, as WS pointed out in Julius Cæsar:

    Truly, my name is Cinna.
    First Citizen
    Tear him to pieces; he’s a conspirator.
    I am Cinna the poet, I am Cinna the poet.
    Fourth Citizen
    Tear him for his bad verses, tear him for his bad verses.

    See what I mean?
