New Year's Honours

I always think I should disapprove of the Honours List, somehow, but I can't muster up the energy. So, instead:

Congratulations, Sir Pterry!


Other honours of note: John Martyn - excellent! May You Never is one of my favourite songs. Ben Summerskill, the Chief Executive of Stonewall got an OBE - nice to see him being recognised. And Lewis Hamilton and Robert Plant.

Less impressive, in my eyes, are the honours for Sara Payne and her Sarah's Law campaigning, and for the people behind Mothers Against Murder and Aggression. Who appear to have acronymised themselves as MAMAA, and not MAMA as any sensible organisation would have done. Weird. And also the honours for what seems like half of the British Olympic team. (I'm sorry, "Team GB".) Imagine what it'll be like in 2012...

You're just being obtuse about the acronym. The RSFTPOCTA, anyone?

..No, that's my point! People usually don't use the little words in the acronyms, and this lot are, even though it actually makes their acronym worse.

Congratulations to him indeed... and also to Michael Chance on his CBE. I was pleased to see his name there. :-)

Oh, cool! I saw somebody else's post raising a glass to Terry Pratchett, but I had no idea why :) That's awesome!
