Sounds yummy, Wotsit.

....I'm now seeing John Major. I don't especially want to see John Major.....
Im getting spitting image and PEAS!
SVT - regarding weight, we are clearly ying and yang. You have lost and I have gained. I seem to recall this happening the other way around before. I think we need to negotiate a midpoint.
I was also channelling Spitting Image and John Major there.
In other news, queries were raised about the date of Outlaw next year and I have posted this on the thread on tri - so just cutting and pasting it over....
Yup - I'm channelling Spitting Image too..
Same question is arising around Roth, but I would hazard that most RD's will try to avoid clashing with the Olympics. At least, I hope they do!
Nay one tell the diffrence...........
Ah, Spitting Image. I never thought it'd be 'classic comedy' one day.
Mouse - I'm not sure whether this helps with our weight-balancing but I'm going to lose well over a stone before I'm vaguely happy, probably closer to two. So if you don't want to gain that much, you'll have to see if you can cancel me out somehow. I think.
I can hear SVT, but I can't see him. Ah, there. Must have turned sideways. Well done sir
I loved spitting image, but I still have horrors over the thought of the dribbling labour politician... who was he?
Their musical numbers were often quite good. I remember a very good approximation of Suede doing a song about circular music trends. The chorus started "Are you getting old, or are we sh!te?"...
I dont really remember watching Spitting Image at the time, but I know most of the classic sketches.
I think I might have rehomed a bit of the spare weight, mostly on my thighs, from all this cycling. My combats never used to be this snug. Never mind, I'm sure after 900miles in 11 days, I'll happily abandon cycling for the rest of the year and it'll get bored and leave.
We've been to cheery remembrance service this afternoon. 84 years old I think, married for over 60 years, kids and grandkids and a short terminal decline. I think thats a pretty good innings, personally.
Wotsit - will you feed us yumminess like that when we come and stay? Please, please, please?!?!
Fly - I promise I will make cake. But not chocolatey stuff as I know you've not bovvered.
And special dietary requests?
Morning Min.........Morning Peeps.
I got 6/7! I am quite shocked, because the only one I didnt know was the one I got wrong. Erm... I mean, I didnt guess the answers to 2 or 3 questions, which I usually have to do.
Wotsit - I dont like chocolate or ice-cream. Other than that, we require copious amounts of homecooked yumminess - so pretty much what you normally make every day! I dont know about bassy. If asked, he will probably try to persuade you to wash his underwear, so probably best not to risk it...
I finished my book this morning. It was very well written, but incredibly depressing in it's swathing toll of carnage and unfairness and maiming and death of the majority of the characters. But it was set in early 80s India, so I should have known better than to expect a heartwarming tale of prosperity and the triumph of good over evil I suppose!
The novelty of not having to go to work has well and truly worn off now.
"A Fine Balance" by Rohinton Mistry. Its a better Indian epic than the fairly awful "Shantaram" by Gregory David Roberts which became rather hard work after about 300 pages. But if you want a proper good India novel, I thought "Sacred Games" by Vikram Chandra was brilliant.
So now I have 3 left in my To Read pile - one is about the war in the Pacific, one is about the Congo (the river, not the DRC) and the other is about the Vietnam war. But I havent decided which to read next. I have book club tonight though (for which I did not actually read the book we are supposed to be discussing!!) so I might wait and see what the next book is for that before deciding.
My extremely busy morning seems to have fizzled out into 2hrs 50 minsworth of cancellations...
