Inside the People’s Republic…

Little did the Quaequam Empire know that when it loftily issued this meme this morning that it would quickly be challenged with a number of other memes from various rogue states and be forced, in all grinchy conscience, to abide by them.

I’m quite smug about this desktop one. My desktop has the impersonal clutter-free air of a hotel room. Absolutely no underwear lying around on the floor of the People’s Republic, oh no. And withal carrying a faint air of sadness. As if I could hit the road at any time.


The reason for this is that I am too poor and wretched to own a computer, and so normally use the guest account on my flatmate’s. If I’d been blogging this over the road at the library you’d have had Better Haringey pinging all over the screen.

And with that pithy socio-economic observation, I tag:

Rob Knight

Jennie Rigg

Peter Black

Julian H

Rob Nolan

Show us yer desktop! (clearing it up first is cheating)



  1. Reduce everything so you have the desktop there and press Print Scrn. The open a blank Word doc and press paste. From here I just cheated it into Picture Manager somehow, I think by Saving As but someone else can probably tell you a far better way of doing this bit. Then upload to blog as a picture in whatever way is normal on Blogger.

    Oh dear. What have I done? Perhaps I should have stuck to tagging non-elected bloggers. I can see the Western Echo now: “Wales grinds to halt as entire Assembly faffs around with Picture Manager.”
