Hurrah for the Bill Bailey songs! And all the other songs! And if only I can convince my father that it is good to be legal, I shall download them and listen to them always, like a fish.

PS. Am feeling surrealist.

I didn't realise the anthems were quite this good. The music alone mihgt tempt me to join.. unfortunately I don't fit the demographic in the slightest other than this.

But really, why wasn't the Bright Eyes mentioned? Or Rufus!?

Who sings 'Frankly Mr Shankly'??? And where is 'Mr Bad Example'??? Honestly...

Frankly Mr Shankly is a Smiths song, and I am very much ashamed of you for not knowing that.

*Deeply ashamed*
However, have never heard a smiths song, bought a smiths album, etc, and therefore can probably, possibly, conceivably, be forgiven. Yes?

It makes it worse. So very, very much worse.

I am ashamed of you, Zazzi. No true PBL ever admits to ignorance, on any level of any subject. You are, for example, familiar with the sixteenth century iron industry, my own area of expertise. Ahem.

I know more about the sixteenth century iron industry than those who... erm... worked in it. And more than you, too.
And, of course, I do know everything, I'm just a little bit rusty on Smiths songs. But I do know everything about them. Of course.
And I presume that you, then, know all about the subliminally satanist messages in the bible, MY area of expertise. Oh, and the development of the dry-fly over the last century, specifically those of chalk streams of Hampshire. Yesyes.

WHATEVER. I am here as the messenger of an important, um, message, and that is that you must all read 'At swim, two boys', because it is wonderful and gay and contains the following exchange.

"Damn it all, MacMorrough, are you telling me that you are an unspeakable of the Oscar Wilde sort?

"If you mean am I Irish, then the answer is yes."

I fully intend to read it, purely on the basis that it has added to my favourite euphemism ever.
Who's it by again?

Jamie O'Neill. It is a wonderful phrase, sis't it?

'Tis a wonderful phrase. Indeed. And, JE, what are you doing on our occasional day? As I have nothing to do... We could meet up, be bohemian, I could wear my only black poloneck... We COULD go to the electric cinema (I knew that would draw you in...)

You lot don't fancy fetching and carrying for moi, who will be stuck in school playing with light, then?

A pity.

Frankly, I wouldn't mind, as I have nothing better to do... But I haven't exactly signed up for the school play... but if that doesn't matter, you never know, I could just turn up...

That you could. Bring money. I expect you at 9 am sharp.

Or not...

Blogger Juliet Evans said...

Is not good idea, as school play very boring. Will get back to you re tomorrow, Z, since parents currently convinced that have pneumonia.

10:14 AM  
Blogger zazzi said...

How much money?
And will call you, JE.
K, I expect you to teach me all about lighting, so that when it comes to do my play, I shall be an EXPERT!

12:37 PM  
Blogger zazzi said...

I hung up on you fi-irst, JE!
And K, I will be there at nine, with money, but will leave at 12 to meet JE in the broadway to be Bohemian. Is that ok? Will you be able to cope without me until four? Be strong, bear up.

You're actually coming? O..k... umm.. it ought to be fine. Tis the dress rehearsal though. Keep a low profile.

Will do my best to keep a low profile - will hide behind you while you whisper thngs like 'press this switch to modulate the white filter on the G37XY'. And I will nod knowingly.

You clearly have no conception of the SADNES of Z's life, K.

1:44 PM  
Blogger zazzi said...

actually, cannot come after all, K, am v sorry, am busy - parents...
Can still come though, JE, at 12:30.
Well, I guess it's a good thing, I'd probably be thrown out anyway...

Just generally.

My blog has been updated, you just can't see it :p

If you're that desperate; a tip...

It's on livejournal, and the username is my usual one.

Hah, and I bet you can't remember what that is now.
