I feel there has been a sudden tendency to 'gratuitous attention grabbing' titles in recent threads by some of our gentlemen
A 'classic' though the movie one must admit
Ha..I photographed 2 white teddy bears hugging at Christmas. We put them on the top of the tree instead of an angel. Just goes to show that under our rough 'attention grabbing' exteriors we are big softies at heart. Your colours are spot on. This is another advert for monitor calibration. The second shot does remind me I must use my English Heritage membership more often. And I will be most disappointed if you tell me that you don't have a jumper to match the rainbow ones that the teddies are sporting.
Is that a Marks and Spencer settee? Scrub that.... I can see another Today thread materialising and I couldn't bear that.
oh I dunno that & Rob's anagrams have kept me entertained for a week while it's rained torrential non stop for a week and schools out....better than monopoly
Hee hee. If he was in church and not on the sofa, the one with the bright red ribbon could have been called Gladly. "Singing" "Gladly the cross eyed bear."
Whatever gives you the impression we are eccentric. Now since you are singling out the mad prof from the time team what about Phil with his skin tight shorts and a pheasants feather in his trilby. Actually if you go to any country show in the UK or anywhere near a horse you will see the same fashion sense. I turned away from the British country side for five minutes and when I turned back everyone was wearing cowboy hats and waxed dust coats. What is all that about? In the middle of a cattle drive in Montana yes but in Hereford town centre...I don't think so. I reckon Phil is part Aussie. The bottom half is certainly Australian and the top half is British yokel. The rainbow jumpers are fine. I can see Johnny Lydon wearing one of these.is this just English eccentricity
The Teddy sweaters were knitted by my wife. If you would like one, and they still run the bare-bones of a postal service to the North of England (pained me to say that), I will dig her up from the garden and prod her with the size 10 knitting needles. It's no trouble.
How I love life...
What was your question? Oh, yeah, jumpers. Spare wool from a wool shop in town. Needed using, and no one was going to buy it. Bears need jumpers, and we have to save the planet.
My comedic influeces: The Goons, Monty Python, The Young Ones, Absolutely Fabulous, Carry on movies, Black Adder. I'm going to see Billy Connelly in a couple of weeks - I can't wait. I saw Dawn and French last (?) year. My literary influences: Ian Rankin, Val McDermid, Iris Murdoch, Reginald Hill, Douglas Adams, Margery Allingham, EF Benson, Elizabeth Bowen, Jasper Fforde, PD James, Alexander McCall Smith, Ian McEwan, George Orwell and on it goes. My musical influences: The Smiths, Morrissey, New Order, Joy Division, David Bowie, The Stranglers, Sex Pistols, Buzzcocks, Arctic Monkeys, The Clash, The Cure...
And then there is my ancestry: English, Irish and Scottish. Not sure whether there is any Welsh blood in me.
We are exceedingly normal in comparison. Aren't we Kay? We don't have any strange habits.
How funny - I used to listen in class in my final year of school to the Goon Show on the radio with a secret ear bud and cable......no wi-fi or i-pods for me, but I was obviously way cool before my time...
no-one else at my all girls glove & hat wearing establishment understood me.....I had WW for William Wordsworth as my hero as well, whilst they alas were lusting after the original Starsky & Hutch!!
they didn't get the whole ride a skateboard call yourself Kevin thing either.....strange
And as for the girls from Ab/Fab....Bubble!!!
actually I am having an evil snicker here as we speak - assigning our forum chaps to characters from the shows you have mentioned
I think he means Aus bought its culture 2nd hand at a car boot sale in Milton Keynes......runs for cover....still running.what do you mean cultural void?
Now what other nationality could I have said that about on an internet forum....you have a very similar sense of humour and we love you upsidedowners to bits really
Is that a confession? I really think you should be selling that to the Daily Star!(I had that Tony Robinson in the back of my cab last week...)
Believe me you would know. Strange urges to sing when in hilly country, wishing you were Charlotte Church's mum every time you see her, fetishes for blue overalls and wellies...it goes on. You would just know.Not sure whether there is any Welsh blood in me.
Thats not eccentricity that is the Conservative/Lib Dem alliance.Wallace and Gromit, Shaun the Sheep
Better idea - you'll love this Rob - you can be a character from Dr Who. I was going to say you could be Dr Who but that would just blow your mind.
And there are no Charlenes that I know in Australia - it was all made up for TV.
