Waste of bandwidth? Bah! Where else but TRRBATPSOIT can one find such a breadth, depth, and instensity of insightful and witty prose?

I prefer clear gel deodorant, because the white solid kind seems to collect a lot more shirt fuzzies.

The last two books I read, I read whilst on holiday. They were Centaur flight by Richard Spalding and In The Company of Hero's by Mike Durrant.

Last night I flicked on the stereo...played some Tuuuunneees and picked up a new book. 'Confessions of a Yakuza' - can't remember the author, but was quiet a good read. Thats the reason I'm knackered today...didn't put it down for ages.

I'm always pleasently suprised when I enjoy a book, I almost always expect to not like them so, when I do, it's a bonus.

Interestingly, Google returns,

And to my nephew Albert I leave the island what I won off Fatty Hagan in a poker game--

as the longest book title in the world.
One finds that a bit difficult to believe, one thinks one has seen a longer title than that.

One used to read voraciously, one could read three books, watch a documentry, carry on a telephone conversation and play chess at the same time, one needs all ones concentration to tie ones shoe laces now.

"A really good read, once you pick it up, you won't be able to put it down"

Always thought some unscrupulous publisher might impregnate the cover with superglue.

certainly not flappy, bringing light to the dark continent can do nothing but good.
Dammed cold here this AM as well, one had ones Canadian fur cap with ear muffs scarf and thermal gloves on during hound walking duty, the scarf is a much under appreciated peice of apparel by the way, splendid invention the scarf is.


PS, one has a irritating tickly cough, one is going to have to venture to the chemists forra cough bottle, one used to favour codeine linctus for such a malady but alas it is banned now, one will have to settle for a bottle of Old Scrotes cough hernia backache and flat feet, linctus

Will last year's female fashion of a loosely-knotted scarf return? Looks bloody dangerous, yer could easily get hung up on passing buses or accosted by footpads.

Again, grey, grisly, gloomy wx.

Indeed, especially as a device for absorbing excess mucous in one's motorcycling days.

Unfortunately it mutated into the tie, that most stupid of male garments, one that combines danger and discomfort in equal proportions, as well as the problem of knotting the damn thing so it a) does not drag on the ground and b) covers the gut.

As one whose "profession" often requires one, I
despise the @#$% things. And don't get me started on bowler hats.

**Rant ends**

Discount Grannies are interesting and neither pointless nor boring.

How many grannies can you get into a cart at once?

Mrs Q's coming here today. Terrible weather.

Tony is taking George to a pub. George doesn't drink. Waste of a trip.

The pisspot known as Binoculars has no objection whatever to the amount of bandwidth being consumed by this nonsense as long as other worthwhile threads are not closed down citing waste of bandwidth.

Wherever I have worked, if one was to leave a 10 note on ones desk, it would remain there until you picked it up again, be it hours or days.

Conversley, if one leaves a humble bic pen on ones desk whilst visiting the bog / photocopier / receptionist, it will have vanished as if abducted by some gigantic bic pen abducting alien spaceship.

....Just for Binos......

You seem a little tetchy today, pressure getting to you?

OK then, here in Lancashire its a very pleasant Autumn day, the sun is shinig and the temperature is now around 10 deg after a bit of a crisp start to the day.

I am going to Calais tomorrow on booze run.

PS with all its recent technical difficulties is PPRuNe not working north of the border as I have noticed that all our tartan posters have been absent the last couple of days. Perhaps the problem is more widespread as the English team don't seem to have received a 'Good Luck' message from Scotland either although the messages from Ireland and Wales got through OK.

quackbum - hope your ferry doesn't leave before 1100L.....

Holiday planning must be so much simpler if you're Scottish or Welsh - no need to get next year's sporting calender out to make sure you don't miss any major sporting events

One could just fancy being drenched in baby oil and locked naked in a sea chest with the Cheeky Girls, as this has a very low order of probability, one will have to settle forra cup of tea one supposes.
