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

We'll have to think of something a bit more convincing, won't we?

It isn't one of our good days. In the midst of despair I go and get myself a cup of tea. Frog's already had the same idea.

"Greugh."

"I agree."

"Sigh..."

"It's shit, isn't it?"

Then Frog has an awful epiphany:

"We're just marking time before retirement, aren't we?"

Come on Kevin. There's a lot more to it than that. Do I have to get Albert Camus back over there and do his party piece for you again?

'Allo Kevin - Tom said you wanted to hear something, 'ow you say, existential. oui?

La lutte elle-même vers les sommets suffit à remplir un cœur d'homme. Il faut imaginer Sisyphe heureux

Having an epiphany, whatever its nature, can be a greatly stimulating and re-energising experience, it could bouy Frog up for at least a couple more weeks.

Ah - look on the bright side though, that'll be EARLY retirement!

Pat said...

It's that time of year - for me anyway - when one feels a bit rudderless. It passes:)

'When having an Epiphany
It's really best to make some tea.'
So... you did the best thing. How about that. xx

Oh god. And to expand we're all just marking time in our wasted pointless lives till we die alone and unloved in some uncomfortable home with the tv blaring and where all the "nurses" don't speak English.

(Creeping off now to commit Topiary-kari with sharp shears)

Moo!

Major: hello again old boy! You did, didn't you?

Albert: I've heard it all before. What did you say last time?

"J'étais distrait, à un moment crucial par un ballon de plage qui avait été jeté dans les gradins et la chose la poste je savais, c'est que la balle était à l'arrière du filet."

I rest my case.

Gadjo: less than a minute...

Macy: we're too young, they'll make us work until we're 75!

Pat: twenty years for me so far...

Ladybird World Mum: there's a lot to be said for instinct

Ms. Cow: you've been listening to Radio 4 consumer affairs programmes again, haven't you?
