skylarking: (sue kitty cat)
~ Old people rock. A Saga cruise is chased by pirates and the passengers patiently wait until their ship has outrun them then go back to finish their meals. Keep calm and carry on indeed. I bet there were WI members on that ship.

~ I've been channelling Mary Stewart for the last couple of days. In The Secret Garden she says that when she was in India, before she met Dickon and the 'Creatures', if she had a headache she made sure that everyone else had one too and felt that this was perfectly right. I've had a headache for the last couple of days and, being the reasonable adult that I am, I've been tempted to stamp around shouting, "I have a headache! Everyone should feel sorry for me and bring me tea and a blankie! At once! Arggh!"
Where is the calming influence of Dickon and the robin when you need it? Or at the very least a bloody good Indian Head Massage?

~ I like the pub Bungalow and Bears, there are comfy sofas, nice staff and the macaroni and cheese (with bacon on top for £1 extra) is fantastic. The toilets also have really entertaining graffiti, including poetry by William Blake. I did notice that it had fallen from its usual standard last time I was in there: stall I was in had "Love you're c**t" scrawled on it. Now, I don't mind the profanity but the grammatical error bothers me. If I'd been carrying a red pen I might have had to correct it.

Wise Words
