Zooming Through The Greenery In My Brand New Leopard Costume

And, no — I haven't forgotten about Conan. He whoops. He leaps. He makes himself sick...

First of all, you have six fingers??

Second of all, I wish my train rides were that entertaining.

Or, if I were ever to take a train ride, I would hope it would be that entertaining.

I think you and my husband are eerily similar in your ability to find normal people very entertaining.

How many more times can I use the word entertaining? Apparently along with lots of blood I lost lots of vocabulary. Or brain cells. Or both.

Very fun, this.

In like a flash on the extra finger gag...

As for normal people — they should be on TV.

I think we're going to need a weekly installment or the drawing.

"tackling 9 down with aplomb--and a pen" and "what a pong!" Heh.

I cannot make out more than 2/3 of what you wrote, but that's an improvement on my part. Not on your writing's part, you will note.

You have an amazingly wierd brain, Whirlio.

I used to commute on the Muni in San Francisco. Between foul odors, the crazy bum who kept grabbing my hat and the guy brandishing a gun one lovely evening, I had more adventures than I cared to...

By the way, imagining you swooping about the garden in leopardy leotards. *smiling*

The peek inside your head is fantastically...erm, discombobulated.

It occurs to me that you may have a penchant for animals and free-floating body parts. Wonder what Freud would say about that?

I'm glad you gave us an update on Conan. I've been worried that you may have eaten him.

Whirlochre said...

Hey, MIS, you're right. I do have a thing for free-floating body parts.

With cryogenics being so expensive, I'm hoping that in the future, scientists will be able to graft on new body parts from people's imaginations. We'll all have faster cars too...

I was hoping for a drawing of the pink socks, in black and white, of course. Thought I saw them on the right-hand side, but I don't think so.

So you drew this on the train, huh?

If I'd been sitting in the car, I'd have pestered you to talk to me so I could see the drawings up close - but you guys don't talk on trains, and then you'd have thought I was a nut. Which, you have to say, is really kind of funny, huh?

Whirlochre said...

The socks will return, in conjunction with my stripey jim-jams, I hope.

As for talking on trains, it's not that we don't do it, but I think most Brits prefer to curl up with a book or newspaper and let the world roll by — apart from the annoying twats with mobile phones who insist on opening their window on the world and dangling their gooleys from the lintel.

I had some guy behind me today arranging an ad hoc business meeting and though I've learned to filter this sort of stuff out, he did seem unusually loud. When I disembarked, he was still chopsing away, and as the people ahead of me peeled their raised eyebrows from the ceiling of the carriage, I realied I was not alone in my miffedness.

"and dangling their gooleys from the lintel"

Oh I say! I haven't seen that on an English train old boy.

Be funny if I did, though.

PS I love the drawing.
