Welcome to Occupied Iraq

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena was freed by her captors on Friday but U.S. forces in Iraq mistakenly opened fire on the convoy taking her to safety, wounding her and killing an Italian secret service agent.

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, one of President Bush's staunchest supporters in Iraq, immediately summoned the American ambassador, demanding explanations and declaring someone had to take responsibility. Full Story

From the Archives:::: Ali G's Harvard Address

If you haven't already heard about him, Ali G is the bad boy rapper straight outta Staines in the UK, near Windsor, where the queen lives. He may live with his Nana in the suburbs and has spent more time in Drive thru's than in Drive by's, but he intends to change the world.

Talking to the great and the good about the issues that really matter, Ali is the only interviewer prepared to ask the really difficult questions like "what was it like to walk on the sun?" to Buzz Aldrin or asking the ex head of the FBI to cast his mind back to the grassy knoll and ask "who really shot JR?".

Last year he addressed the students at the Harvard University and I've got to say it was one of the funniest speeches you can ever imagine - This bloke is a genius. I can't locate on the net a video of that address but here's a complete transcript... DO CHECK IT OUT YOU'RE GONNA LUV THIS.

For those who hate their flatmates

I've just updated my links on the side bar... the new ones are marked with ***. Do check them out.

There are so many blogs about people who don't get along or outright hate their room/flatmates. If you can't stand them, do something about it innit. Sittin on ur chair typing on ur keyboard telling the whole world and not actually getting off your fat arse and doing something about it won't help.

Here's to give u a start.


1. Insist that you are a vegetarian and protest anytime your roommate eats meat. Then leave "Slim Jim" wrappers on the floor and lie on the bed holding your stomach every time your roommate walks in. If he/she asks about the wrappers, say you know nothing about them.

2. Get some hair. Disperse it around your roommate's head while he/she is asleep. Keep a pair of scissors by your bed. Snicker at your roommate every morning.

3. Every time your roommate walks in yell, "Hooray! You're back!" as loud as you can and dance around the room for five minutes. Afterwards, keep looking at your watch and saying, "Shouldn't you be going now?"

4. Trash the room when your roommate's not around. Then leave and wait for him/her to come home.then act surprised. Say, "Uh-oh, it looks like, they, were here again."

5. Every time you see your roommate yell, "You jerk" and kick him/her in the stomach. Then immediately buy him/her some ice cream.

6. Set your roommate's bed on fire. Apologize and explain that you've been cold lately.

7. Put your glasses on before you go to bed. Take them off as soon as you wake up. If your roommate asks, explain that they are Magic Dream Glasses. Complain that you've been having terrible nightmares.

8. Eat lots of "Lucky Charms." Pick out all the yellow moons and stockpile them in the closet. If your roommate inquires, explain that visitors are coming, but you can't say anything more, or you'll have to face the consequences.

9. Set up meetings with your roommate's faculty advisor. Inquire about his/her academic potential. Take lots of notes, and then give your roommate a full report. Insist that he/she do the same.

10. "Drink" a raw egg for breakfast every morning. Explain that you are in training. Eat a dozen donuts every night.

11. Every Thursday, pack up everything you own and tell your roommate you're going home. Come back in an hour and explain that no one was home. Unpack everything and go to sleep.

12. Every time you wake up, start yelling, "Help! Where the hell am I?!?", then run around the room for a few minutes. Then go back to bed. If your roommate asks, say you don't know what he/she is talking about.

13. Draw a tiny, black spot on your arm. Make it bigger every day. Look at it and say, "It's spreading, it's spreading."

14. Buy a McDonald's "Happy Meal" for lunch every day. Eat the straw and the napkin. Throw everything else away.

15. Buy a plant. Sleep with it at night. Talk to it. After a few weeks, start to argue with it loudly. Then yell, "I can't live in the same room with you," storm out of the room and slam the door. Get rid of the plant, but keep the pot. Refuse to discuss the plant ever again.

16. Buy a Jack-In-The-Box. Every day, turn the handle until the clown pops out. Scream continuously for ten minutes.

17. Hang up pictures of chickens all over the room. If your roommate eats eggs, yell at him/her and call him/her a cannibal.

18. Buy some knives. Sharpen them every night. While you're doing so, look at your roommate and mutter, "Soon, soon..."

19. Lock the door while your roommate is out. When he/she comes back and tries to unlock it, yell, "Don't come in, I'm naked!" Keep this up for several hours. When you finally let your roommate in, immediately take off all of your clothes, and ignore your roommate.

20. Bring in potential "new" roommates from around campus. Give them tours of the room and the building. Have them ask about your roommate in front of him/her, and reply, "Oh, him/her? He/she won't be here much longer."

This is enough for today. I'll post some more ways tomorrow, meanwhile if you've got any bright and creative ideas, do share.

Baros: I didn't threaten to walk out

Why the f**k was Baros on the bench in Cardiff? A half fit Kewell was given the nod ahead of a Baros and its left not only him but many others wondering what was Rafa's thinking behind that!? More so bcuz we lost 3-2 and could have done better had Baros been in the starting line up.

There were reports in the tabloids the next day that he wasn't happy after being left on the bench and wants to quit (I dont blame him). However, more recent news reports suggest he's denied threatening to walk out, but hasn't ruled out a move at the end of the season depending on how he's treated by Rafa.

Here's the story in full

Re: Sorry People

Thanks to everyone of you for your show of support. You lot were right... things are looking much much better than they were two days ago.

The thing was, I've changed my whole life around for one person and I mean REALLY changed it around completely. Those who've read my 101s will have some idea of what sort of things I was into just a year ago. Anyone would love to be able to do all that. I loved it, didnt have no complaints.

Then I met her. And that was it for me you know. I'd never thought I'd be THAT crazy about someone but then she's worth it all. Not only she's the most beautiful girl I've ever seen, I just can't find a fault with her no matter how hard I try. I used to think perfection is a load of bull and there aint nothing thats perfect. Until I met her.

And then we had this argument a couple of days ago... looked like it would be for the best if we parted ways... I suggested that to her... She was hurt and so was I... And then we talked things over today and realised there wasn't a problem in the first place!

So, its my advice to anyone who wants it, when you find someone who genuinely cares about you and is ready to accept you just the way you are, hold on to em. Don't let it go, don't give up, fight for it cuz............ its worth it in the end.

I'm gonna hold on to Henna cuz I know with my history I'm unlikely to get someone like her. She's gorgeous, she's sexy, she's intelligent, she's funny, she's got a filthy mind and she's the most honest person I've ever known. In short, she's everything I've ever dreamed of. I'm like a kid in a candy shop :)

Okay, I won't bore you with this anymore, and since things are back to normal, let me announce that yours truly has been 'chosen' (after I applied, obviously) to write for the Official London Blog!!!!

I dont know yet what I'm gonna be rambling about but I did come up with this cool bio for myself... you can see it when you click my name...

'ear me now, dan iz da new mcdaddy of west london whoz traded a life of drugs, booze, hoes, limos and private jets for a career in advertising for a prestigious business mag (yawn....) and iz starting to regret the decision... A die hard liverpool supporter with strong views on world politics and keen interest in the dark side of ppl, he iz sure to keep you hookd on dis blog from now on.

Checkout badtomsmullet's post. He's posted a link to some chick's website he claims to have slept with. And now her guest book is filled with entries like:

'There is some forum geek claiming to have slept with you.On this forum he claims you are the most minging girl he has slept with, and is basically hoping people will turn round & say, "She's not too minging, so you must be a stud". Cynical is me, sad is him... Who's the fool? He insists that you have a bucket fanny. Pelvic floor exercises would sort that out, if you do indeed have a loose end that needs tying up. You could trim your bush whilst you're working in the area... From what I've been told. Its a rough ride for you.

Out of the mouth of Fans

This will be a regular feature now, as some of my co-forummers in a football forum come up with some of the most imaginative stuff on a host of subjects. Here's a selection from the past 24 hours.

On last night's game:

'If you are Chelsea, then welldone, but make the most, as you will not win a quarter of what Liverppol, Man Utd or Arsenal have. Make the most out of your win as when Abromovich f***s off you can look back at your Carling Cup with pride. PRICK! ' - wevegot4

'liverpool still have 28 more trophies then chelsea. you can always gloat about that if you like lads.' - FOREVER MAYBE

'HA HA! STEVIE O'G. apparently mourinho is holding on to an extra winners medal to give the lad when he moves south. He earned it.' - Jimmy Woo

Gerrard reflects on Cup agony.

Steven Gerrard has insisted his Liverpool team-mates must pick themselves up from their Cup Final disappointment and 'stay strong' for the rest of the season.

Gerrard admitted he was devastated after scoring the own goal ten minutes from time which got Chelsea back into the game and led to them winning 3-2 in extra time. But he says the Reds must now forget about their Cardiff frustrations and ensure they have something to celebrate at the end of the season.

He said: "We just have to pick ourselves up now and play for other things. It's a tough day for us but we have to get over it. "We scored early, maybe too early, and then tried to run the clock down. We were ten minutes away from winning the Cup ourselves but credit to Chelsea, they played well.

"It's obviously very painful for me to score the own goal. It's been a bad day for me and the team but we have to pick ourselves up now and stay strong."

Classic Quotes from the Oscars

The coverage on the Oscars would be all over the media anyway for the next few days, so I won't bore you lot with discussing it here as well. Instead, I've digged up some of the memorable Oscar quotes from the past, as the The Academy Awards always throws up some pearls of wisdom from the great and the good of Hollywood

"I feel like Adam when he said to Eve, 'Back up, I don't know how big this gets.'" - Robin Williams, before opening an envelope for best supporting actress at the 71st Academy Awards.

"Welcome to the Academy Awards, a glittering two hours of entertainment, spread out over four hours. For those of you taping this on Betamax, you're under arrest." - The late Johnny Carson at the 1979 bash.

"If there's one thing that actor’s know - other than that there weren’t any WMDs (weapons of mass destruction) - it's that there is no such thing as best in acting." - Sean Penn.

"Despite what the Wall Street Journal says, our awards are the best-kept secret in America, with the possible exception of what George W. Bush did in the Seventies." - Billy Crystal gets political in 2003.

"I voted for Seabiscuit, because I thought that was the most realistic horse costume I had ever seen in my life." - Billy Crystal, again, commenting on the Costume Design award given to Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King.

"Do you know that people are moving to New Zealand just to be thanked?" - Billy Crystal, after Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King won yet another award.

"I think you oughtta give me an Oscar just for attendance." - Long-time Oscar host Bob Hope in 1986.

"For the first time, you can actually see the losers turn green." - Bob Hope, hosting the first "in-colour" televised Oscar ceremony in 1965.

"Every time an Oscar is given out, an agent gets his wings." - Kathy Bates at the 2003 Academy Awards.

"One day you're filling out applications to be a waiter, and the next you're nominated for an Oscar. This business is crazy." - Alec Baldwin's response to being nominated for a best supporting actor Oscar for The Cooler in 2004.

"I hope to God I don't win an Oscar. It would really depress me if I did." - Dustin Hoffman before losing the best actor award to Rod Steiger in 1967.

"The only way to find the best actor would be to let everybody play Hamlet and let the best man win." - Humphrey Bogart in 1951. The year he won best actor for The African Queen.

"Babe: Pig in the City. Wasn't that the Linda Tripp Story?" - Whoopi Goldberg, hosting the 1999 Academy Awards.

"The Oscar is the most valuable, but least expensive, item of world-wide public relations ever invented by any industry." - Frank Capra, upon winning best director in 1936 for Mr Deeds Goes To Town.

"I'd like to thank Jack Nicholson or making being in a mental institution like being in a mental institution. I loved being hated by you" - Louise Fletcher, picking up her best actress award in 1976 for One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.

"I'm thrilled, happy, delighted - sober!" - Maureen Stapleton, as she was awarded best supporting actress for Reds.

"Not nearly as exciting as it would be if I were acknowledged as one of the greatest lays in the world." - It's Maureen Stapleton again, when she was later asked by the press how it felt to be recognized as one of the greatest actresses in the world.

"Whoever Keyser Soze is, I can tell you he is going to get gloriously drunk tonight." - Kevin Spacey accepts best supporting actor in 1995 and makes reference to his Usual Suspects alter-ego.

"I would like to be Jupiter and kidnap everybody and take them to the firmament and make love to everybody". It could only be Roberto Benigni, winner for Life Is Beautiful.

"The first time I didn't feel it but this time I feel it and I can't deny the fact that you like me - right now, you like me!" - Sally Field in 1985 as she gets the best actress award in 1984 for Places In The Heart.

I came in to work today wearing my red liverpool top.

The office of 'The most prestigious international business magazine', where you only see people in Armani suits wearing Prada ties. And its not like in England where people recognise your club shirts. Here, its just a 'red t-shirt' with a 'beer company's logo on it'.

Needless to say I've been getting weird looks all day. The boss has had a word, very casually without making it sound like it was a big deal but still. I just think this is discrimination. I'm only supporting my club for gods sakes! Afterall the are playing a CUP FINAL today!

But to them its just a 'bright red t-shirt' that violates the dress code.

Anyways, fuck it. I'm headin off to the pub in an hour with my mate who supports Chelski. Who ever wins will be paying for dinner later tonight. I've been saying to him all week that Liverpool are gonna kick Chelski's butt 5-0.

Lets hope that happens!

America has a history of imposing and supporting un-democtratic regimes if it suits them. 51% of yanks actually think Bush's only trying to 'being democracy to the middle east'.

Only in america you'll get such an overwhelming majority of the electorate so ignorant of the outside world. I repeat: If Bush was a leader of a European country, he'd be facing the War Crimes tribunal alongwith Slobbo.

Personally, I don't think americans have the cojones to do another monumental cockup.

I am Stuart Hughes, a world news producer with BBC News based in west London.

I grew up in the Welsh capital, Cardiff, before moving to the Midlands to study English and American literature at Birmingham University.

After six months of voluntary work with the Iona Community in the Scottish Hebrides I returned to the Land of My Fathers in 1994 and began freelancing for BBC Wales.

I moved to London in 1997, working first for BBC Radio News and then for BBC World Newsgathering.

On April 2nd 2003, while covering the Iraq War in the Kurdish north of the country, I stepped on an anti-personnel landmine. My colleague Kaveh Golestan was killed in the incident.

Five days later, my right leg was amputated below the knee.

I returned to work after six months of rehab and I'm now back on the road, covering events in countries such as Iran, Greece and Cambodia.

Since my accident I've also become an anti-landmine campaigner and a patron of the Mines Advisory Group.
