Mexico Catch-up

Back from Mexico. BA business class is crap compared to Virgin. And Richard Branson is not paying me to say that. Ate fried cactus and corn fungus ravioli. Watched Knocked-Up on the plane, as well as that thing about that Scot who broke some world cycling record, starring Jonny Lee Miller (yum. Wonder if he ever wakes up and thinks, my God, I was married to Angelina Jolie? Am I alone in finding the Scots accent sexy? Does this explain why I think Gordon Brown is a better prime minister than Tony Blair?), and something about Chinese refugees planting an allotment somewhere Oop North. Tried to watch Brokeback Mountain but kept falling asleep. The whole thing is just like Ang Lee's big gay fantasy that a couple of hunky straight cowboys will turn out to be secretly up for guy-on-guy rumpy-pumpy. Watched Harry Potter on the way back, which blended seamlessly into all the films before. Also tried to watch that Edith Piaf biopic, but fell asleep.

Woke up the other day and realised I was probably more than halfway through the journey of My Life. In honour of this, I decided, like Gerard Depardieu in Green Card, to EAT LIFE. So I'm going to see that Terracotta Army exhibish at the British Museum tomorrow with Mo. Ha! Take that, all you drug-taking, sex-with-strangers-having, volcano-climbing, fun-lovin' youngsters!

Fried cactus! That must've been messy to make I imagine - with the water in it hissing and spitting. I hate the word biopic. It reminds me of a medieval medical instrument.

Your ability to carpe diem never ceases to amaze. Emboldened by the though of the endless hours of queuing fun that lie ahead of you and Mo, think I'll have an afternoon nap.

I also find Scottish accent sexy although I might have problems deciphering the accent.

Must be fall. Time of new beginnings and all that. We're off to the Museum today too. Titanic artifacts. We have a reservation, so I don't expect to stand in line.

I agree with your thoughts on Virgin - I flew with them to New York and Hong Kong (my only two trips ever out of Europe!) and found them superb even in pleb class.
As for Scottish Accents, check out Gregory's Girl for some of the best ever!

Word verification - Topyub - I like it when they give you something that should be on Call My Bluff:-)

Gregories girl
Only people half way through their life would remember dreaming about Claire Grogan.

Its quite strange that you wee ninies talk about a scots accent. Which Scots accent Glasgow, Inverness, Aberdeen or the best of all because its what I have one from Edinburgh. I would say that it is only those from this fair city that completly and properley innuciate the language from the south.

But you make a point fbt, any scots accent is so superior to the nazzle grunting of Birmingham, or that shrill testicles in hand whine of Liverpool.

As for going to the British Museum for a dose of Terracota, why didnt you see the real thing in China when you were here.

By the way there werea brace of lesbians on my bus today groping each other, one looked like a fella the other a girl, I was not aroused or discusted just fascinated.

What about Stanley Baxter? His accent was far superior to Claire Grogan's ;-)

962 - you have a Scots accent! you are suddenly so much more attractive to me. Do you also look like Jonny Lee Miller?

Troika - chance would be a fine thing. You would think that people who travel business class, as well as being richer, would also be more attractive, than the hoi polloi. But sadly it is not so.

Hey - how come I'm out of the top 10?

you haven't said anything for ages and your blog is a mystifying selection of ads.

Blogger 962 said...

Like Mr fumier my blog was hijacked after I had closed it down
Spike says this is normal and thats why you get the ads

However I am on the move and after 17 years will be leaving HK for new climbs.

Before I do I will resurect 962 actually I may do that very soon.

I will now return to wooing Penelope, what a woman, no ribs or hip bones sticking out and a generous helping of body.

But most of all its the eyes

Can I be the only one to find the thought of Phiz getting knocked up on the plane strangely exciting?

Business class is oddly sexy, what with all these total strangers sleeping in comfy semi-private beds in close proximity. You'd think there'd be a whole lot more shagging going on. But not so (at least none that I spotted / participated in). This is probably not unrelated to the fact that we are all so unattractive.
