Crush and her character names…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s heraldic term is ‘gambeson’: a quilted undergarment worn with chain mail.
I stopped wearing my chain mail a few weeks ago, the itchiness of the gambeson on hot days made it thoroughly unbearable.

The last time Veronica Crush, (writer from the glory days of the Hull Surrealist League, now living in New York with tall tree surgeon and heir to a multimillion dollar fortune, Monty Tick) sent me one of her odd ‘stories’, I found a piece of paper in the envelope which I suspect she had included accidentally. It is a handwritten list in pencil of possible character names for her to select from to feature in her future writing.
Hm, I might Google a few of these to see if they could turn out to be real people…

Grace Swaythe, Teddy Moil-Coil, Larry Parker Pork,
Lord Arthur Backle, Marion N Yonn, Dandy Fargoe-Dix,
Doug Upshot, Tammy Lassoon, Clarissa List,
Pamela Jayne Tarr, Joanne Deep, Vince Beautiman,
Bobby Tussle, Steven Sleeve-Hoof, Gideon Damp,
Madge Topping, Barny McLush, Peregrin Hoot-Boom,
Zoe Mow, P J Tarrango, Captain Jellojo Bocks,
Darlene Feece, Queenie Templeforte, Cubby Hagenstasse,
William S Lartay, Bo Lampowder, ‘Crazy’ Roderick,
Tubby Snayke, Clive Wuman, Penelope Gull,
Sandra Palm, Sir Ed Trammel, Theo Modo.

Gosh, I hope Veronica isn’t going to be upset by my publishing these before she’s had the chance to use them. Still, I’m sure she can easily come up with a few new ones, it can’t be that difficult…
