And once again it's Monday, but before I get to the Choose-O, I have something I want to get off my chest so to speak.
Or should that be type?
Anyway, yesterday, I was happily spending the extra hour by wombling around the house making sure all the clocks were set to the correct new time when I thought it would prolly be a good idea to call The Speaking Clock to get the correct time.
Now I'm one of those people who are still upset that 'The Time' is now 'sponsored by Accurist' instead of just being 'will be'. I don't see why something that's perfectly good should be mucked about with and as the old saying goes, 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it'*
So I don't know if you can realize my surprize and indignation when I dialled 123 to be told the time by Tinker Bell.
What really irritates me about it is that not only is this 'Tinker Bell' sickeningly sweet and friendly**, but she has an American accent.
Disney has a lot to answer for IMO.

Anyhoo, now that I've finished my little rant, here are the choices for the Choose-O -


Answers in the usual place please, and while you're down there why not tell me what you did with your extra hour?

Additional, 12:32 hours. Does anybody know why my photo of Aristotle sitting on Dappy has been viewed nearly 9,000 recently?
Aristotle meets Dappy.
I know Aristotle is popular, but over 100 views a day?

*Flickr, take note!
**The original Tinker Bell was a twisted, homicidal fairy that was stalking Peter Pan. I really like the original Tinker Bell.
