    hah - Blaney doesn't really drink any more himself - it'd be a tall
    order for him to get me drunk before he passed out.
    even less likely, I think.

    Not a thick Dalston one like what he's got.

    (The Older Gentleman) wrote in
    was that when it switched from Young Mr Wotsit to Middle Aged Mr Wotsit. It
    certainly got less interesting after that.

    The transition was particularly clumsy, although I can see how a marriage
    of convenience can do that to someone.

    I've got a backlog of recorded stuff to watch so I doubt I'll bother next

    nah, just not as much as I was expecting going on past "performance".

    I reckon the Blane had about 1.5 bottles of wine in the 2 weeks I was
    there. Me, something like 2.5 in the same time - which has made me
    feel pretty damn healthy, all things being relative.
    hah - I reckon I could have had[1] the manageress[2] in the "Game
    Zone" shop we were in where Blaney was buying some weak-ass child-
    friendly Wii games; I was explaining to her my dire and urgent need
    for a US-sourced PS3 Network Card "Top Up" and she was lapping up my
    tales of "how cool London, Engerland was, despite it's annoying lack
    of support for Region 1 PS3 content".

    [1] she hand-wrote a Colorado Springs telephone number on the back of
    the receipt for said Network Card top-up; I've not had the balls to
    check yet whether it's a personal number or just the number of the

    [2] general note to "GAME" et al. in the UK: hire reasonably fit
    chicks as manageresses in your geek-emporiums - you *will* sell more

    Yeah, can do, even if it means turning up in a suit.
