The only tinfoil available is in the bottom of the oven covered in strange brown and yellow stuff. Is cling film any good?

One of my cats is sat on the desk in front of me.

I'm going to kick it out very shortly when I go to bed. It will spend the night in the kitchen with its brother.. the kids don't like them to go outside in case they get the poo kicked out of them.

It's alright chaps - most of the brown and yellow stuff came off with a bit of a scrape. My wife says I must sleep in the spare bedroom though. She took the turnip off me as well.

Bollix!! that Lord of the Rings was on cable last night so I taped it, the scart plug must have been loose, zip all but noise on the tape,

One was to mean to go and see it at the cinema.

Had use of a 14 inch Celestron for a while UL730, still never managed to ever see much on Mars.
Was using a 80mm f18 refractor last night,

Ha!, in Salford one could be burned at the stake for owning a instrument such as a telescope.

Even though most of the indigenous inhabitants wouldn't be able to spell "telescope", humping one outdoors would certainly invite the wrath of the Ordsall Moral Majority..................

Tell me Mr Casablanc, does a pub rejoicing under the name of The Clews still exist in Salford?.
In ones younger days one led a life of complete dissolution and debaunchery, one has frequented the lowest dives it is possible for the inoccents on PPRuNe to imagine, one has drank deeply in pubs with floors of pounded earth, walls fashioned from cow dung, and shrunken human heads hanging from smokey rafters.
One has caroused with wimin of the easiest virtue it is possible for a female of the specise to possess and drank foul intoxicating beverages from dirty Jam jars in a thousand low dives in every corner of this earth from Pernambuco to the Keeling isles, but one has never ever seen a lower dirtier scruffier pit of iniquity than the afore mentioned Clews.

When stress of work and tempis fugit
strains your compis mentis and it frays ya,
take a load off, take a plane
and take a break and holiday in Malaysia.

* * *


to take the chance to scratch a Rossco might
not reveal a swarthy Muscovite
one's weapon of choice is neither sword nor sabre
but turning verse as a Celt would toss a caber.

* * *

Oohhh! I scream

for ice cream

make my tongue go

vibrato

the taste buds alto

salivitato per

uno grande gelato.






* * * des penses impromptu sur le petit isle * * *

Alas, Mr Draper, I know of no such hostelry.

Perhaps you're confusing it with another den of hellish iniquity or, perish the thought, could it have been in Manchester???

You may be right Mr Casablanc , it was a while back, the Ludites were marching thru the streets a lot in Slaford then as I recal.

Funnily enough, I'm off on holiday to Malaysia in 10 days' time, visiting family, doing a bit of diving, buying some new clothes that I don't have to shorten by six inches...

There is a boutique in Seremban that sells batik sarongs, for statuesquely challenged, both waterproof and suitable for wearing at the Chinese Mooncake Festival. Canít remember what itís called though. This snippet must qualify as totally pointless and surely keeps the thread on track?

Mr D. has 232 posts on this thread, and is clearly the most prolific contributor.

I am in 11th position with 24 contributions (now 25).

(and yes, UL230, you have got the general idea)
