Piccadilly Circus


It seems that a lot of you still don't like Twitter.
So I'm going to tweet right here on the blog again

Tweet 4:

People who visit my home - Kev, Doctors, Carers, District Nurses, Social workers, Macmillan nurses, Physiotherapist, Chiropodist, Do gooders, Anorexic Anne from no 22, Scintillating friends, Sad lads, Jazz fan.

And I'm supposed to be a loner!

Tweet 5:

I support Spain usually instead of Gerard and Rooney.
But I stand to win £100 if Holland win (tenner at 10 to one)


Tweet 6:

We live practically next door to Sainsbury's - look what's on BOGOF.
Back the van up Rog!

Q: Do you like Kipling?

Have some fresh raspberries from my garden.

I'm sure they'd go well with Battenberg. And a pint of cream. And a little ice cream.

Blogger Kerrie said...

Wow ,I love a good BOGOFF. You are also lucky to have Scintillating friends,I will send mine round as they are a bit ropey and could do with some good influence and some Battenburg.

11:47 am  
Blogger Rog said...

I wondered who Bogged Off with all the Bloody Battenberg!

Your flat does sound a little Crowded House. People Falling at Your Feet in your Private Universe - It's Only Natural.

You could have invented a new Web 3.0 phenomenan - Blog Tweeting. BLEETING!!!!

PS Wasn't "Anorexic Anne from No 22" an early Beatles B-Side to stop Ringo from grumbling?

Do these mini Battenberg come with real marzipan?

YO! I've had a bet on Holland to win (10 to 1) since the group stages!
Great minds etc.

MacMillan nurses?? Hope those girls are just passing through
Take care.

I still get palpitations at the memory of Neekens, Cruyff, Yoengblood and co.But the Spanish footwork is fancy.What to do!What to do!
If you've got the bandwidth, this might take your mind off it for a while

Bleeting. Twogging. God! I love this place.

Everywhere I go, it seems that standards started slipping once I left the country.

How are you supposed to live up to your reputation as an Idler, if you've got this constant stream of visitors?

I will let you off as long as you confirm you've got a large comfy chair that you hold court from, rattling your empty glass, making your visitors run around after your every whim.

If Rog suggests your hairstyle is more like Pineapple Head, I'll happily slap him for you.

Blogger The Poet Laura-eate said...

Must admit I'm one of those who never got into Twitter and have no idea what it's about or how to follow anyone on it. Thanks for sharing your tweets on the blog Kaz - my, what a procession of visitors to your door! Sounds like you've got more folk waiting attendance than the Queen at the moment!

I love that you are eating that (revolting but) gorgeous cake.

Blogger Vicus Scurra said...

I am distressed to find you promoting the cause of marzipan. It is an abomination, and 36th in the list of "God's cock-ups".

12:05 pm  
Blogger Arabella said...

Thank you Kaz. I wouldn't have tried tweeting if it hadn't been for your request, so stuck in the mud am I.
There isn't much cake there but plenty of Geoff and Betty excellent one-liners.

Yesterday I found Tunnocks Teacakes in an old sweet shop in Shropshire - made me think of Garfer.

2:46 pm

We are back from Nottingham just in time to cheer on the Dutch. You'll get your money, Kaz.

I gave up Mr Kiplings cakes as they made me talk very nasally.

Hope you're quids in with Holland, but not the most exciting game so far. Hope all well.

Were you overcome with emotion at the Spanish win this afternoon?

I hope you celebrated with some bubbly.

It's hot and sticky here. I'm told it's the same back home. I should have just stayed put.

I did weird things to the toast while half-watching the game instead of getting breakfast.
Sorry about your hundred quid, Kaz, but I expect you're really pleased with the result.

Hello Kaz, it's called "Copernicium" this new element. Wonder whether they'll find some more.

Blogger Zig said...

ah here I am late for the party and doing no good - but I could do with borrowing a do gooder to do the cleaning, have you a spare?

Shame about your money, but that'll teach you for doubting Paul. I had money on Villa scoring the first goal - even though I wanted the Cloggies to win. It was rubbish though wasn't it?

If you dissolve marzipan in gin it makes something not dissimilar to napalm.

Happy Wednesday.

Do you need more supplies?

I brought you some freshly picked mangos and avocados from my brother's garden.

I'll leave the bottle of rum on the table. Sip it, don't knock it back. It's the good stuff.

There was a Battenberg pun on 'I'm Sorry I haven't a Clue' this week and now it's featuring in the novel I'm reading: 'The Clothes on their Backs' by Linda Grant.
Dramatic piano music.

Yeay View

Have you battenburged?

Thanks Dave sounds fab

So kind - but my Battenburg is fir me alone o and one piece for you.

Bleeting - I shall patent it

Mago It tastes real? WHAT OTHER SORT IS THERE?


do-gooding sad jazz chiropodist???
Ta for the warning.

Chair = bed Roses - Laura do you think her maj is a loner?

Pete gorgeous cake - don't tell MJ

Vicus: What do you use to stick your icing with?

Geoff wrong

Kevin forget the stout - save it for Ena - I'll have the butty.

Madame: chuffed for SPAIN.


........ Linda Grant??

Have you read 'Still Here' Arabella?
I though it was excellent.

Sounds like Heathrow Airport round at your house. I certainly wouldn't let any jazz fans past the front door. Can't you get them to form an orderly queue and put a "Half day closing" sign up in the window when you get fed up of them all?

Regards to you and Kev, anyway.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Some of us have been doing a silly little writing analysis (it's Dave's fault-he started it!) and I thought I'd chuck your hat in the ring. It says you write like James Joyce. Which is about even money, along with some bloke called David Wallace.(Who might have had a dog called Grommit.)

Now that I've buggered your day with that...I'll go.

Me again. It's Saturday.

As you don't FB, I had a thrill this morning.

Ho hum...that's the downside to staying in the tropics.

Hope you're enjoying your battenburgs.

Hi Kaz, happy Sunday.
Not to sure about the cucumber baskets with the marzipan Rog is flogging.
I think it may work with a melon.

Ugh. It's Monday morning.

I think Monday sucks. Whatever you're doing, where ever you are.


A bit like how I feel about Rog's cucumber and marzipan baskets. I would ask if he's pregnant, but having seen him round Dave's, I know this isn't the case.

Dear Kaz,
Those Kiples & bits must be covered in crack because they look like mini pieces of house insulation?

I came back to the blogosphere to see how you're doing? You seem to be as funny as ever, trade costumes with one of those do-gooders traipsing back and forth and sneak off to Spain.

I'm stuck on Facebook? On top of all my other shortcomings, apparently Sloth has managed to take over the gang...I don't know how Sloth beat out Lust and Envy?

Come over and visit me..
it's infinitely more annoying than Twitter and Blogger, but it's so easy.
