Did you know that the sign '&' is called an ampersand? This is the kind of revelation that keeps geeks like myself happy for hours.



So anyway...
Here's a question to which I need a wholeheartedly
English, eccentric response.
It has come to my attention that those who are really getting on in my company have something in common. A decidedly outr hobby. Clearly I need one.
Your suggestions please.
It can be anything as long as it isn't going to cost me an arm, a leg, a marriage or a spell in prison! Although something with a risk element wouldn't be beyond my consideration.
Do your worst.
My destiny is in your hands.

Well you're certainly not borrowing any of my big hats ...

I know (!) You could collect all the broken England car flags that seem to litter the verges and central reservations of our roads at the mo.

Don't thank me for this superb idea - I guess I'm just gifted creatively ...

Join a morris side!!! seriously! it's fun, you get fit, and people think you're compleeeetely crazy. You get to dance in the sun and drink beer, you get to bash big sticks and stamp in clogs to fabulous music, and you get to wear crazy costumes. Abslutely nothing more fun than morris :)

there once was a geezer called Tiro,
who was late in receiving his giro,
he scrawled in the sand,
a quick ampersand,
so Cicero gave him a biro.
