So this is the 'Etch-a-Sketch' manifesto? Bored - shake it about....oh look, a new one?

god loves a backpeddler

Yawn. Who let Neil back in the house?


1. Yeah.
2. Don't understand.
3. Does it matter? Do you care? I don't.


I care lots - about whisky and things....


Learned to touch type 50 wpm at journo school. Plus 110 wpm shorthand.

Can't do either now.

It's the continental azerty keyboard wot dunnit for the touch typing. A mini tape recorder, meanwhile, shagged the shorthand.

Oh well.


I can sort-of-almost touchtype, simply by bashing the keys with three fingers super-super-fast and giving myself RSI. And doind the whole thing really-really loudly (as anyone who I have ever worked with has remarked). Does that count?


I agree on the typing thing. It means I can fanny about all day, then whip up copy in five minutes flat before my genius is applauded by all.

(Interestingly - or not - I didn't learn to touch-type in school, and taught myself at university, so while I'm quick, quick, quick, my fingers are technically not in the right places. I worked as a subtitler for a year while doing my post-grad, and became even speedier at that point, as well as making some comedy errors for all the region's viewers to see.)

    If you love Big Blogger in an almost entirely non-physical way then be a good sort and whack one of these attractive Big Blogger-themed thingies into your sidebar.

    Our Links

    Huge thanks go to Lucy Pepper for her wonderful illustrations.

    Plus, even though he's not blogging anymore, let's remember Watski for coming up with this godawful idea in the first place.

    AND, if you've got 300 years spare time on your hands you could use it to re-read the whole of the original 2005 Big Blogger event. Go on, I dare you.

    The only other place we should really link to is the official BIG BROTHER website. After all, they're the ones who bought the rights to the concept in the first place; we're just adjusting it for our own purposes. I'm sure they'll understand.

    So if you want intellectual stimulation and laughs-a-plenty, stay right where you are. However, if you want boredom, drudgery and maybe some tits and arse, go there instead.

    I know where I'm going. Okay, see you later...

    Legal Mumbo-Jumbo

    The idea may not be original but everything else on here is of our own making and 100% original. So don't go borrowing unless A) you link back to us, or B) you ask us really really nicely beforehand.
