End Of A Nera?

Bastards!

Did anyone ask me if I'd like to pop down for a free pint or two of Special?  Did they hell!  Could have been there in 7 hours.
 
Never did find out where you're doing your course in advanced cutting your fingers off and form filling, but if it's at Camborne, I think that's where my friend Patrick Lowry works.  I haven't been in touch for years but last I knew he was running the Arts Foundation course there, and may still be.  If you see him, say hello.
 
I've been trying to help Trevor to copy some MP3 files of his PC onto  CD as Cd audio, and I think I may have confused him more than a little in the process on account of having got it all completely wrong myself in the first place.  If he asks you, all he has to do (I think) is to tell Nero that he's making a music CD and Nero will do the rest.  Don't know how Nero finds the time, what with all that fiddling and making his horse a senator and general I, Claudius carryings on.  Not to mention being dead. 
 
And now, to achieve the closure I so badly need, I shall softly sing the abridged version of the lament for the empty barrel.  If anyone would like to join in, the tune is a bit like the one from that happy little Hungarian folk song "My Cow is Dead"
 
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom
 
(Chorus)
Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar
Doom Bar, Doom Bar
Doom Bar, Doom Bar
 
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom
 
(Chorus)
 
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom
 
(Chorus)
 
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom
 
(Chorus)
 
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom
 
(Chorus)
 
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom
 
(Chorus)
 
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom
 
(Chorus)
 
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom
 
(Chorus)
 
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom
 
(Chorus)
 
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom
 
(Chorus)
 
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom
 
(Chorus)
 
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom Bar
Doom Bar, Doom Bar, Doom

But the Reporting Team swear blind that they asked you. Well, to be precise, the morning after they were swearing and had gone blind!
 
Haven't been in the arts compound at t'school of mines yet but I have it on good authority that it is visually stunning and falling to pieces. Maybe they could submit for the next Turnip Prize contest (if they can just get the lights to go on and off when you use the switch)!
 
I will pass the message on to Trevor although I think he has been so traumatised by the MP3 incident that he has lost the will to live and recently attempted suicide by wine rack.
 
PS. It was Caligula who made his horse a Consul. Personally, given the state of modern politics, I am mystified as to what all the fuss was about.
 
PPS. Since we are ending on a musical note is there any truth in the rumour that Stevie Wonder is re-releasing one of his classic love songs in aid of hard-up barristers. Come on, sing everyone, ..... my Cherie amoral ....

That may very well be so, but that, ipso facto, does not alter the fact that Nero made his horse a senator.  He just kept quiet about it.  But I agree that some of this lot could have shown them a thing or two, e.g. Blair, Blair, Robinson, Vaz, Mandelson, Davies and Cook.  All set to replace the Trumpton Fire Brigade, given, of course, a wide ranging review of outmoded working practices and a full committment to modernisation and marketised service delivery against measured benchmark target indicators to provide sustainable and measurable end user value.

I suppose there is a degree of similarity. I mean, Caligula made his 'orse Consul of Rome and Tony Blair made his arse Deputy Prime Minister!
 
Final fling tonight at the Meat Draw. I've done nothing but one bloody buffet after another for a solid week. Today we had to do a lunchtime buffet in addition to prepping the stuff for the Meat Draw buffet tonight.
 
Got to try and get the last waltz sorted for the SSI Friday update so can't hang around.
 
The Reporting Team say "Y'all have a Crispy Hatmas and a Hippy Nude Ear". I think that's what they said. I think they've been at the sherry and mince pies again!
 
Have a Super Saturnalia,
 
Vampire The Buffet Slayer.
