It looks like a MIGHTY small towel too. I think I'd better decline.

Oh, how nice! He's got a laddy at the door now. Must be the lady's day off. I may come to visit, if I get to see Pshrynk as well as a cuuuute laddy!

You can change that, you know. If you're after a title, I suggest asking within this thread. I'm sure there'd be a billion suggestions (maybe even one you'd actually use ).

No, no, please don't go into my pantry. Didn't you see the warning signs and flashing lights and hazard symbols? The Party's menu "ingredients" are currently being "prepared" there, and the ingredients tend to get their panties in a bunch during preparation - fractious Oortwhale and angry Irukandji do not make pleasant companions in confined spaces.

And Zany Carter Deluxe ingredients.
You know, I really can explain the Zany Carter Deluxe's ingredients if you wish. In this particular manifestation of reality, in purely earthly climes, the recipe is quite simple and not outlandish at all, though, of course, still totally zany and practically essential as a spa drink.

To dry I just lay out in the front driveway in the sun, or, of it's cool, on a Saturnian RingBearskin rug before my library fireplace's craterous opening into bowels of the Inferno. Either just makes me feel tingly all over.

Of course, I still know where my towel is.

One of my favourite songs is the Split Enz song, Poor Boy...

My love is alien, I picked her up by chance
She speaks to me in ultra-high frequency
The radio band of gold
Gonna listen til I grow old

What more can a poor boy do?
What more can a poor boy do?

The crackle of the radio
The message in the evening sky
You're looking at an interplanetary Romeo
I'm never gonna see her face
between us there's too much space

What more can a poor boy do?
What more can a poor boy do?


The version from the ENZSO album (with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra) is brilliant. (Also, it's sung by Dave Dobbyn who wrote, and sang with the Herbs, my favourite happy song and the main song from the soundtrack of the movie version of my favourite childhood comic strip...but I digress...). Then again, that whole ENZSO album is luscious (you've got to love it when they blend in spoon-playing with an orchestra).

Cheers,
Marc

Cheers,
Marc

I truly was not referring to you in the first half of that sentence. And since its not the 'other' photo, nor the second.

Wait, I don't get it?
