Just a few pithy items…

But first…
Dulltown, UK: Today’s two words that are difficult to say when glued together are: spam queue, spam queue, spam queue, spam queue…

Excuses for being late. No. 360.
I’m sorry I’m late, but I was delayed by an outbreak of St Elmo’s fire. (St E’s F)

A single overheard remark:
‘I had to go for a really gross scan…’

Today’s old record that it would be really uncool to like is Hungry Like the Wolf by Duran Duran. (HLTW)

He had a mouth that had been shaped by many many years of saying the word ‘no’.

Yes, I know, it is a bit odd isn’t it?
What is Dave?
Well, the way I always start my daily blog off with:
But first… and then:
Dulltown, UK: Today’s…

Then, for some reason, I fence that section off with a row of those >>>>>> things.
I have always done it… I suppose this part, this preface, might be there to compensate for my lack of confidence in the writing of the main body of the post – perhaps if people don’t like the main thing at least they’ve had an amusing little titbit at the beginning – like a tasty starter, ahead of a pretty dull meal?…
