Just some smallish items…

But first…
Dulltown, UK: Today’s carefully selected fish names are: the Armored searobin, the Clingfish, the Glowlight danio, the Houndshark, and the Sand stargazer.

Excuses for being late. No. 381.
I’m sorry I’m late, but I needed to dust the slats of my Venetian blinds.

A single overheard remark:
‘And I was left at Stamford Bridge with a duck…’ (SB)

‘Anyway, I’m planning a film on the life of the 19th c. French poet Jean Nicolas Arthur Rimbaud.’
‘Oh yes, and who are you hoping to get to star as Rimbaud?’
‘Oh, Sylvester Stallone of course…’
‘Ah, right…’

An old record that it would be really cool to like is that 1960s early environmentally aware song Fresh Garbage by Spirit – it has some really catchy riffs and timings in it – it’s very sixties.

‘Oh great wise and pithy one, what is the secret of life?’
‘The secret of life is – not to measure everything in money my dear friend.’

So, the number of really interesting spam items I get turning up in my comments box dear reader, is, I’m afraid, reducing. I don’t know what I can do to attract more. Still, here’s a short, but pithy one – it seems to be from someone called Delle:
Both boys jumped up and down eaɡer

to know find out hoԝ to make God happy.
Oh, thank you for getting in touch Delle – I always appreciate religious references in spam items I receive – reading this is just like being invited into your lovely home, and being in the warm bosom of your family. Please send me more things like this – they really make me squirm – but squirm in a good way – isn’t squirm a great word Delle?

Yes, I’m thinking of changing my name to Lester Wurrius.
(I have a funny feeling I may have had this name before…)

A single overheard (possibly misheard) remark:
‘You can’t go looking for flamingos with pineapples Carl…’

      Hm… alright then…
      Oh, twangy guitars… one of them I see was Rick Derringer – he turned up playing with the great Cyndi Lauper in the 1980s.
      And speaking of money…

        Yes, it does, but now Cindy appears on tv touting the latest drugs for some kind of disfiguring skin condition, the gist of which is that money can’t buy everything……but it can get you some good drugs.
