We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

No form of entertainment, no matter how sordid or debased it may be shall ever take the place of Her Majesty's Commissioners of Income Tax

"How's tomorrow's big day looking?" I ask Maybelle. "It's sorted," she says, though the sincerity of her words are compromised as she rolls her eyes, bites her lip and hisses something about "... mince pies!"

I ask Bronwyn the same question. She lets out a deep sigh. "We'll get there and we'll do it because we always do."

I ask Frog and he says: "Like always, we don't know what the fuck we're supposed to be doing and nobody seems to much care. We'll make it up as we go along as per usual and they'll say it was a great success because enough kids turned up and nobody was actually sick on the carpet. And this time next month it will all have been forgotten about."

Unfortunately, they're dead right. They'll deliver a fun event despite not knowing what it's for or what the Library Service wants to get out of it and Policy Team will think it was a splendid thing for all the time that they care to think of it. What a waste of resources and opportunity.

Cow thinks she'll come to this shindig.

Mince pies, just her favorite.

And since nobody's running it, there's no agenda, and no activities arranged, it is RIPE for takeover of the Topiary World Domination Platform.

Subversive Moo!

Definitely. Though anybody could take us over and we'd be none the wiser. In fact it would explain much if they already had.

Given the government's emphasis on under-fives and t'Internet it's only a matter of time before one of us does it Ellis.

Just in case I need to know in the future... how did they escape it?
