Might as well laugh - Father Ted

I've not been in much of a mood to write recently. I've been taking it easy, thinking about a lot, and trying to relax and have a laugh. I came across a load of Father Ted episodes as part of the "having a laugh" efforts. If you've never seen Father Ted it's an excellent Irish comedy about a bunch of priests. It's fantastic.

Here's a link with a load of episodes you can watch. Enjoy :)

Be sure to check out Season 2 Episode 3: Tentacles of Doom - it's one of the best.

And we're back

I have an interesting story to tell but unfortunately I will not be going into much detail - for legal reasons.

I recently lost my job. I was forced out - fired - ostensibly for disagreeing with my boss over the subject of faith. He felt, as a catholic, it was absolutely fine for him to express a sincere distaste of all things Arab on the grounds of religion. I mentioned that I was an atheist and decided to defend my opinion in further conversation. Of course, this meant thoroughly undermining his own brand of fantasy.

So anyway, he decided he wanted me gone and gone I am, but since you can't sack someone for their religion, or lack thereof, especially when you are a high ranking executive of a multinational who has just spewed forth a whole load of anti-Muslim rhetoric based on nothing whatsoever than your own catholic bullshit then they had to make me leave quietly. Quietly I left, and I shall remain quiet so as not to get my arse sued off, but I think it is quite safe to relay the very basics of the story. This is now done.

So, I am now unemployed and to be perfectly honest quite relieved to no longer be suffering that particular job and it is also the first time I have lost my job for atheism. What a beautiful and interesting life we lead here still stuck in the dark ages of the planet of the apes.
