This is a side blog, we CAN NOT follow back.
We’re busy doing nothing
working the whole day through
trying to find lots of things not to do
We’re busy going nowhere
isn’t it just a crime
We’d like to be unhappy but…
we never do have the time!
MARTIN: Oh, Douglas, I thought of another one this morning.
DOUGLAS: Oh yes?
CAROLYN: What are you doing this time?
DOUGLAS: Books that sound more interesting with the final letter knocked off.
CAROLYN: What have you got so far?
DOUGLAS: “Of Mice and Me” and “Three Men in a Boa”.
CAROLYN: Ah, ah: “Far from the Madding Crow”.
DOUGLAS: Oh, very good, we’ll have that, and what’s your new one, Martin?
MARTIN: (proudly) “The Hound of the Baskerville”. (pause) I’ve taken the s off!
DOUGLAS: Almost good. Certainly better than when you took the s off “The Mill on the Floss”, to make “The Mill on the Flos”.
okay when Martin said the “The Hound of the Baskerville”, I lost it, it was just to perfect. God Bless You Captain Creiff, John Finnemore, and Benedict Cumberbatch.

No. Not in the mood today. No no.
Too sad to do anything. Went straight back to happy Fitton days instead.
Off to have an Arthur Shappey moment in the bathtub.
*quietly crying in the corner*
Wanted to listen to Just a Minute to cheer me up, but that´s another BBC series. BBC series never end well.
Don´t expect anything funny from me in the next days.
Only a couple more weeks until the new series of Cabin Pressure airs.
