"Structure comes first"

Horlicks.

Function first. Form after.

"Hmmm that's nice what we've built. Shall we make it into a mosque or a multi-storey car-park?"

Horlicks, indeed.
Bovril, almost.

She's good, though, don't you reckon?

So - what are WE going to write?

Hey.

Actually logged in to regret writing that last post. She is good. It's writing not architecture. It doesn't need to follow the same logical construction process. and so doesn't matter what order it comes in so long as the end-product is good. Which seems to be the case. She's not you is she? Or Lion?

She's not me. This I can assure you, hand on wotsit.

Lion is interesting. I'd never considered that possibility. Maybe because she'd have to be inventing origins, and (surely most improbably) her sexuality. She'd also be presenting a character with a lot of angst while really being a don't-give-a-f*ck-kind-of-person.

Most of all, she writes a lot better than Lion (you listening, sweets?)

So I don't think so.

Anyway, you still didn't say what we're going to write.

Dunno.

Suggest it's funny.

Pilot for BBC sitcom.

Then again, why do it here. Why not get paid?

New York, Monaco or Gleadless?

Yeah, I saw it before. It's a bit disconcerting, 'cos nearly everyone in it looks like someone I already know.

(Elects not to make any un-gallant Don't-Fancy-Yours-Much-Type comments)

And why do so many hootooers seem to wear glasses? You don't suppose we might all be stereotypes, do you?

Yeah best keep quiet on that front. We haven't raised our ugly purple heads yet. Problem is. You can find a phot that reflects your true dorkiness, and that's it. Robert is your Mother's Brother. Or. You can dig out one that was accidentally taken through gauze (as Nanette Newman once said to me) that catches a chink of poor light and makes you look half decent. But then you pitch up in RL at the meet and everyone is dissapointed. What to do? Let them know I'm plug-ugly now. Or pretend I'm Brad Pitt's better looking older brother and let them down with a bang later?

Just between you and me, and the thousands of adoring fans who regularly dampen their undergarments in rapture at our repartee, there IS a picture of me on the internet.

Just one that I know of.

And rather low res, and in a group consisting of ten people.

Five of whom are wearing dresses, which (might) narrow it down a bit.

Fancy a game of Guess the Freak?

I'll see if I can find a link...

Photo. Tricky. Could easily add insult to injury here. I'd have to say that based on the jauntiness of your Dad and the youth of your children, you're not the fellah on the right. Possibly ruling out the next one in too. That leaves me the three on the left. The short one with the loads of hair ain't got specs. I took that as a clue. Although he's a little scruffy a la DNA. Then the one on the absolute left was my first chice but he seems a little too earnest, too clean, too pleased with his award to be you. Good teeth though. You seem to possess more 'cool' in your virtual life. He looks like he'd have finished his in-laws spare room 8 years ago. So that leaves the one at the back to the left. With the tasche. Sort of pleased, sort of embarrassed by the whole thing. Dunno mate. I'm dreading posting myself up. Ain't got a scanner and can only think of one occasion I've been www'd in the local press.

Trout. Off to find a scanner.

I am so cool and enigmatic.
They've removed the page, so now only you know how incredibly good-looking and full of stature I am.
Those poor women...

(they've replaced it with a much better picture of the earnest-looking guy with the good teeth, btw. If you fancy him, I could arrange an introduction, though I should tell you that he's a Middlesborough supportersmiley - erm)
