Arrggghhh, I'm being internet stalked by a mad Russian woman who talks like a fax machine! Who's also far, far too close to her brother!

It's true!!! Luckily she can't get a visa to visit the UK, however I'm sure she'll be waiting for me again in Paris in 2005, just like she was this year and in 2001. Scary scary woman!

I haven't a clue what you're talking about, Mr Davaar, but I am pleased that your eyelashes are in good shape.

To determine the gender of a giant tortoise, turn it on its back. If male, it will have a groove on its underside. (Don't forget to turn it back the right way up when you've finished.)

The fairy tern does not build a nest, but lays its single egg on a bare branch. Sometimes it gets blown off in strong winds, so it has to start all over again.

Chocolate snowballs are best kept in the fridge, they give a sort of crunch when one bites into em, then melt in a most pleasing way in ones gob.
One has just eaten two .

Hmmm, I see that there's a GOM Christmas special planned for the festive season.

To forestall the rash of posts that will doubtless result, here's my prediction about what will be covered:

Crass commercialisation
Spoilt kids
Company parties/dancing
Decorations/trees appearing at the end of September
Dried up/tasteless/everlasting turkey (with optional gripe about carving)
Unwanted sweaters/socks/ties/slippers
Round robin letters
Shopping
TV repeats of Wizard of Oz/Sound of Music/White Christmas
Slade/Wizzard/Cliff Richard
Pine needles all over the floor

See? Now we don't need to mention the subject again and can get on with enjoying ourselves.

I'm sort of enjoying myself, I'm half-cut and the bloke I went drinking with at lunch has just sent me an emailing offering me a job...woooo hooooo. All I need to do now is pull a porn-star on the way home and it's been an OK day!

Beware of Xmas job offers.

He'll be giving yer a white beard, and red hat and tunic as 'work overalls'. Or antlers and a red nose. Either way, Xmas job're to be avoided.

"Well?"

Mr Draper, are you referring to the person who offered him the job or the porn star?

when you see the guy again
I'm hoping he's referring to the job offer - if TC's hoping to meet a male porn star then I'm in trouble

SG

Looks like you have been some time without accessing JB, most of the topics you mentionned have been making the rounds recently.

Leave JB for a fortnight and you miss the essential things of life

SG was forced to go to the Seychelles and lounge about on coral sand in the sun, and plodge in the Blue Green warm Indian ocean and has had to forgo JB forra week or two, poor SG downright crool I calls it.



Not seen Blue Peter for years, caught a bit of it tonight, buggah me!!! they got a Geordie presenter who wudda thunk it,
Val Singleton wudda had a fit of the vapours and fled out into the Blue Peter Garden and stayed until the Geordie had been captured and subdued.


One notes that as yet nobody has answered ones question from page 25 re the French Onion Men.

Mr Draper, it is just not right that a Draper question go ignored. Not right at all.

North of the Wall they were not known as "French Onion Men", but as "Ingin Johnnies". I thought they came from Spain, but that just goes to show, or whatever.

They were never seen, not by me at any rate, actually to ride the bicycles, which were an early form of the half-ton truck, for transport of goods not under the Warsaw Convention, more specifically "ingins".

The last Ingin Johnny I saw was at Kingswells in Aberdeenshire, circa 1950. He spoke fluent English. No, truth to tell he did not: he spoke fluent Aiberday-uhn. I am not bad at the Scottish dialects, but he was a real test of my ability. He surely undersood the psychology of commerce and marketing. I expect yours had the Geordiesprach.

A propos your comments on another thread about incomers' blending, I remember from about thirty years ago an immigrant from the Sub-Continent, possibly via East Africa post Idi Amin, who settled in Lewis. After a few years, by which time he was fluent in Gaelic, he ran for the County Council, and was elected.

There may be a lesson here for some.

I seem to recal them knocking about the streets much later than that,Mr Davaar, they used to do a roaring trade around the doors here,one suspects they offered the ladies more than dark skinned onions.
One alus felt a tad sorry forrem, its a hell of a peddle from Normandy to Tyneside, with bundles of onions hung round yer neck, especialy as most of there bikes looked a tad clapped out to say the least, I seen the Viet Cong pushing sacks of rice up the Ho Chi Min trail on better looking machines.



Of course exotic fruits such as French Onions are to be had in any corner vegtable shop now, one suspects that singaporegirl could just have wandered down the High St and purchased a Coco de Mer from the greengrocers instead of having to traips all the way to the Seychelles for one.


For botanically illiterate Prooners, the CocoDe Mer is a very rare coconut shaped like a arse.
