Some smallish items…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s honoured guests are the Brad Pitt lookalike triplets, Ted, Lance, and Bertie.

Excuses for being late. No. 227.
I’m sorry I’m late, but I had to clean my tape heads and pinch wheel.

A single overheard remark:
‘He’s grapefruit daft!…’

‘What’s that flappity-flappity sound?’
‘Where’s it coming from?’
‘Oh, it’s that goth lad over there – it’s just his ankle-length black leather coat flapping in the wind.’
‘Ah, right…’

The local Dulltown accent:
‘A dirt mind…’ – I don’t mind.

Someone once said that I was the second best blues guitarist in Hull – but they wouldn’t tell me who the best one was….

‘I’ve got a great idea for a really innovative scene in your film…’
‘Oh?… What’s that then?’
‘It’s the scene where the professor, or the head detective, or the spy boss, is addressing his colleagues in front of a screen where images are being projected…’
‘Oh yes? I’ve seen that in films quite often – it’s good… So, what’s your great idea?’
‘Well, this time we don’t have the person stand in front of the screen with the image appearing on his or her face, or shirt, or jacket… They stand to one side so the people can see the screen…’
‘No, no, that’s not very dramatic is it? We couldn’t have that!… People like the pictures moving about on the person’s face, and shirt, and jacket – it looks clever!…’
‘Oh, alright then… It was just a thought…’

Aha! An item of spam in my comments box. This one is from someone called smifaq:
‘You will should allot a large area when you’re
to obtain a recliner sofa. Generally sofas can be found in many sizes and shapes so it is possible to choose the one that best accommodates your room. The fact is, not only you might get a sectional sleeper or loveseats, but in addition some new ideas as an example sectionals creating a constructed-in chaise seat…
Keep in mind that they are easily damages by ordinary bleaches and fabric softeners…’
Well thank you smifaq, I will certainly bear in mind what you have said.

I’m thinking of changing my name to Timon Money.

A single overheard remark:
‘There was a really splendid spreadentation…’
