If the chocolate in the fountain tastes bitter it's because it's been laced with my tears

I've been tidying out some of the folders on my laptop. I look at the odd bits of workings-out; the reports and recommendations; the outline plans and sketches for things we could do and deliver and I feel an overwhelming sense of misuse of purpose.

Looking at the service development and achievements at work over the past five years I could have just as usefully spent my time sitting atop a Belisha beacon with a bottle of vodka in my hand, singing bawdy songs at passing policemen.

if you switch the BElisha Beacon for a local graveyard, the drink to real ale, and the policeman to gravestones then I'd feel tempted to drop by for a pint sometime :-)

I have had a similar ephiphany recently regarding the past 5 years. I shall be bringing a cheeky red wine to the proceedings if I may join you?

Kevin, you have clearly been following my career with some close interest. Except I prefer bus shelters to Belisha beacons. Save people shouting 'You old Hore woman' at me.

You forget the crucial element of spondoola - when pay day comes round, where is the money coming from for that vital accessory in a bottle, if you spend the preceding fortnight perched on a Belisha beacon?

Macy said...

Well yes... but...FIVE YEARS on a BELISHA???

Oh Kevin,
"You're my mate, and I will stand by you!" - or so they sing, and yes, I will sing with you, bottle of vodka in one hand, Frank S. Thorn and his bear on the other (did you have this vodka-advertisement in GB too?) So much time wasted - Sláinte!

Wendy: this sounds very inviting.

Happy Frog and you: oh dear. By all means join us.

Madame DeF: so that's a bus shelter near a graveyard by a zebra crossing...

zmkc: I can't help thinking that paying some of our managers to sit on a Belisha beacon would be a better use of the public purse.

Macy: it's no worse than bad digs in Alloa.

Britta: it looks like we have the nucleus for a party!
