Just watched and thougherly enjoyed the movie Mrs Brown,the story of Queen Victoria and her Scotish servant John Brown, no huge exposions, no special effects, no car chases, no Dinosaurs or starships, no chattering AK 47s or chainguns, just a good script well photographed and well acted.
Interestingly evidence has come to light this year that Victoria may have married John Brown in secret.
Hmmmm ,the plot thickens

Singaporegirl’s Secretary:

That all came through, you know. Still; no prob. I gotta say your speed’s fantastic: no shorthand, straight to the machine. Zip-a-dee-doo-dah. The occasional slip in caps and punctuation, sure, but Hey! It hadn’t even been formatted yet.

She was naughty to say “stupid girl”, but it’s all aimed at me, really: “extended diversionary irrelevance”. Don’t be upset. Is she pretty when she’s mad? Not that I care, you understand. Just asking. No, I don’t suppose you would see it that way. It does not distract me for a minute. Not one. Well, maybe just one; that bit about the hair. Plenty, let me tell you, with just a little gleam at the back. A few silver threads, perhaps, among the gold. Anyway, many people think white is real neat. And on bald, which does not even enter the discussion, don’t forget Elijah: 2 Kings 2; 23, 24.

When She is talking with the other sloanies does She use expressions like “NOOU” and “NOCD”? I have a reason for asking.

Let’s keep this between us girls. She does not have to know I sent it.

Anon.


Mr D. She'll pass it on, of course.

Well Brown was one of the lower orders,but they after all have mongrel vigour, a few new genes in the melting pot (Brown Windsor soup no less) might have worked wonders.
Thank goodness he wasn't a left footer though, we couldn't have tolerated that.

.... can well-empathise, Herr Drapes, re: techomillodgickal revolt by said suicidal puter.
Has niece who re-formatted this steam-driven mostronsity Pre-Pprune days. Haven't tried opening two windows at once since....

.....
SG I accept your concession... on the proviso one's blanket- decisions re: catering trades reflect a more pragmatic and Shakespeare-esque flavour.. viz. a little learning is a dangerous thing....

. . . . . . Antipodean swans are, naturally, called simply swans down here.

. . .... . . have the recipe for jugged hare around s/where.... similar marinade to wot one uses for venison, actually.

. . . . in keeping with thread theme, didja know, Herr D., there's a slip-up on part of the photography in "Mrs. Brown"..? Look carefully in the background, when Billy and his brother are towelling off at the beach. You'll see a windsurfer scudding past in the distance.

. ...... .. Davaar...... any chance you could determine if SG's secretary has a sister.... ?

Drat. Mr Davaar has seen through my Eliza Doolittle front and exposed me as a charlatan. How ungentlemanly and non-U of him. It's only the middle classes who care about these things, you know: true nobs and oiks don't give a damn. (I note that Mr Draper passes no comment.)

Perhaps I should go for the Doctor Doolittle approach instead, and talk to the animals (present company accepted).

PS If you see an eastern European girl with a dog on a string hanging about begging, please don't give her anything. She'll only spend it on champagne, which she consumed in vast quantities at my house (but at least she'll be able to afford only NV now).

Hey Boy! What yew singin’ theah? Yew tell me sonny!
Yew singin’ blues for Singapore gal, li’l ol’ honey?
Yew say them eyes of blue, or mebbe brown, cryin’ real sad?
Account of what wuz done thar’ by an interferin’ cad;
A scrivening attorney, dull past all conception,
Peeping into innocent feminine deception.

Hot Dang! Boy! We gonna git him.
We gonna hit him.

She warn’t Charlotta the harlotta, the cowpuncher’s wicked moll,
Nor Charlatan the harlatan, nor any other scheming troll.
She wuz pore but she wuz honest; Well, honest more or less,
An’ none of youse is better, youse may as well confess.
Not Mr spork, nor Mr Risky, nor Mr Draper came to harm,
But that nameless Other went an’ raised a D. alarm.

We gonna have a trial, Boy. Yup: by heck.
We gonna hang him by the neck.

A interview with one of those Mitford Lassies on telly tonight Mr Davvar, she is dead now,so I suppose they must have interviewed her before she died.
That nice Mr Mosleys lady wife.
Will watch with interest.
That singapoegirl is prolly a tad right wing, those rich folks tend not to be socialist.

Yes, Mr D, but I'm a tad right-wing myself, and many pinkoes are indeed well heeled: Cripps, Strachey (commie for a while), Shawcross, Crossman, those Webbs, and so on. Here we had the rich (inherited) and pink (some say red) P E Trudeau, who rode around Montreal during the war on his Harley, wearing a Nazi helmet, and later bringing us the Canadian peso. Great fun. They get in the way of the lad o' pairts who is on his own. Had I but realised I'd have been in the USA long ago.

As for Lady Mosley, she was married to Sir Oswald. He was a fascist, at much the same time as Churchill expressed admiration of Mussolini and even Hitler. The "appeasers" are today represented as kow-towing to the European powers; but many of them did really hold right-wing views. More, I think, in the upper classes than in the lower. Anyway, the choice was, support: (a) Adolf and his concentration camps (the extermination camps came later) or (b) Uncle Joe and the Gulag. No one outside the systems knew much about either.

The Mitford I can't stand was Unity. Auschwitz defies, thank God, imagination, but her heartlessness does not, as she discussed, in the presence of the current (Jewish) occupants, how she would redecorate their Berlin apartment when she took occupancy .... after their eviction.

I am just a softy; too often, I fear, a bleeding heart: but she shot herself and to my mind it is a pity she made a hash of it. I have no sympathy.

WW2 sub periscopes used actual hair for the cross-hairs.

I had a haircut the other day, with a #2 comb. Fairly draughty now.

There are different cross-sectional shapes for each hair colour.

I had my barnet trimmed on Saturday too, it had been 30 days since the last one and it was far far too long, looks great now though.

Also, back to a boring snippet of info: The Ford Focus RS is a very fast car.

I'm getting a little hungry. Shall I go to the supermarket, or get something at home?

The problem is though that I'm not sure if I've that much to nibble back in the house. It might be easier to pop into the supermarket, since I have to go past it on the way home in anycase. Mind you, its lunchtime, and the queues can build up a bit which means it takes that much longer. Still, not as long as getting home and finding that there's not anything good to eat and having to go back to the supermarket that I passed on the way home to find I've nothing in the cupboards.

Mmmmm
