This is an ‘html-only’ version of Scribblings with no database behind it. This means it is not possible to search it. I am working on a new version with which I am hoping to eventually put back into the main site. The new version is here but please note that there is no link directly back to the main site.

More Diana madness

Ohmegod, I’ve just discovered that on 1 July there’s to be a concert to mark what would have been the 46th birthday of Diana Spencer, the rich parasite and socialite who died in a car smash in Paris in 1997.

This year was going to be bad enough already with the 10th anniversary of Diana’s death coming up in August and the inquest into her death finally about to get underway1. Now we’ll also have to put up with the rich rock stars with who she surrounded herself recounting all the usual drivel about how Diana was kind to her cat. The grief market will no doubt go into overdrive again selling mawkish mugs and plates. How on earth can I avoid this nonsense this time?2

1 Quite why an inquest is needed is beyond me. If you’re so dumb as to travel in a car with a drunk driver without even wearing a seatbelt then there’s a pretty good chance of you ending up dead. Isn’t there?

2 I published this piece on my website three days after Diana’s death. My sentiments haven’t changed since although my writing ability has probably got worse.

An apology

Since moving the site to a new server Scribblings is not as easy to find your way around as it used to be. It used to depend on a script and a database on the server but is currently served as ‘flat html’.

I have some ideas about how to make it a bit easier but they depend on writing another script. I hope to get around to it ‘eventually’.
