MY ABSCESS, that I had on my left thigh and barely mentioned has gone down pretty nicely without bursting (mine never burst, my immune system, aparently, is too strong) they just sink down. Faintly disappointingly as no pus to ooze, explode, mop etc. but all in all far healthier. The top of my leg was bright red at one point. Hmmm...
Gremlins in a tube: yes! I picked up the Maltesers tubie this morning, had to put my hand the other end in case I laugh and that is enough to make them blindly bolt out the other end, believe me... and cooed into it, "Hello! Hello! Come out you baby gremlins!" and two nervous little faces appeared, two pink quivering noses, one atop the other (they seem to love sleeping double-decker). This was Bashful and Itchy. Big Momma Spherical, being superior (and I suspect she is their literal mother) sleeps separately and imperiously in the granary (ie the cardboard box into which they disgorge all their wild birdseed) and would go bananas if I dared disturb her peace... So in the end Sergeant Itchy emerged to investigate and ran over my hands for a while. So tiny I must get a photo to show you. Meanwhile have a click on this and note how tiny is the robbie in scale with the toilet tube. Tiny tiny pompom-pingers. Maybe the original L Roborovski founder of the dwarf hamster brand in 1910 or thereabouts lost the pompom off his wooly hat on one deep siberian expedition only to see it racing about with legs on and a little pink nose and hiding under bushes... a closer look and hey!... it was Bashful and Itchy's great great to the power of a hundred ancestors ~~ wahey!...
My main video of the day comes from the dark days of the 1980s when Britain had a mere 4 television channels and computers were glorified pocket calculators. It's the peerless Adventure Game!! Take a look at this for a blast from the past in ancient computer graphics. And also how crap most BBC TV used to be... stage actors treating the studio as if it were live theatre (lots of OTT expressions and voice projection) and so on and so on... Which begs me to pose the question: what was 80s TV like in YOUR part of the world? How many channels did you get? Is it true you Australians had channels 1, 2, 3 and 9... but no 6, 7 or 8??! Plus what was the worst programme of all time (apart from the delicious Prisoner: Cell Block H!?!
Also, to perk up your stately Sunday I've two clips of Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie starring in The Simple Life: Interns
1. Vacuuming up a corpse
2. Burger King employees!
