...and the beat goes on...
Good luck Emmy - I'll think of you on my 8k plod
Kaz - how are you feeling, flower?
Good luck , Emmy.Here's a photo of Simon to inspire you
kaz, I hope you're feeling a bit better. ...'especially cos I'm about to email you 100 questions about camping etc in the Orkneys...* No, not me! *
Wassup Mausey?! Hey, wishing you the best of times in Milton Keynes this weekend Emmy - hope that gets through my computer's 'irony-filter'.
Simon - are you a flasher by any chance?
MM - Hopefully you are ok. I'm sure much of their rant is because they'll miss you. I know the barrage parents can dish out at times. My mum perfected the classic case of slagging the child off in front of her while praising their siblings, but reversing that when confronted with the other siblings. I think the two most common lines I got as a kid was "pick a window you're leaving" and "there must have been a mix up at the hospital as you're no kid of mine".
Kaz - Take it easy you. Although I do say that as someone who sneaked out to a football match two hours after getting out of hospital after getting my appendix removed when I was 16. The only time I've ever winced when the Bankies scored!
MM-Look in the mirror, are you proud of what you see, only you can truely judge yourself.
Eggy - I know that well!! Mine still does it most of the time...........I think just now is the only time I have ever been the 'perfect' daughter!
MM - You are a truly wonderful person, that your parents are disappointed to be losing to the other side of the world.........
Mausy - Balls to what your parents are saying. you're alright in my book.
RS - Hovis test. The adverts used to have the strap line 'as good now as it's always been'.
Weedy - I've got 'the stick' which is similar to the tigertail and it's pretty good, and has the advantage of being pretty portable.
One for the Caledonian massive:
Scuffle is too similar to rammie. Really should have a chibbing option for Strathclyde. Plus they spelt Polis wrong!
Taggart always made me laugh. Only posh folk got murdered and they sent round Maryhill CID! Really should have been some hiedcase up a tenement close from Possil.
I love 'Taggart'...comedy accents and all. My favourite take-off is an old ' Naked Video' (?) sketch where the original T was in a bar and the barmaid, trying to place his..er...particular accent asks ' What part of Glasgow are you actually from, Inspector Taggart?' and he answers....
And you're right, Eggy. All the corpses are pretty posh.We should be safe to walk the streets, then...
'spectacularly slow 22.4k for me. Infuriatingly, considering I was dressed for....Scotland in January, the sun came out and I was baking under my balaclava. The sea looked nice, though.
MM, they'll be studying flight schedule from Oz to Douglas...
They missed out stushie...

Eggy - I'm afraid I didn't understand a word of your last missive Off to Edinburgh just now.
That explains why you didn't understand a word....
Eggy - I'm afraid I didn't understand a word of your last missive
Iain - me too, so I ran it through Google translate and here's what pops out the other end
"Dogfight is too similar to Rammie. Indeed it should be possible chibbing Strathclyde. In addition, they policy with errors! Taggart always made me laugh. People just snob was murdered, and they sent round Maryhill CID! Some really mad building near Possil."
