    “I’ve always been a highly sexual person, and I’m going a bit nuts. I got turned on going to B&Q yesterday. ”

    This has to be a made up letter shurely? Still a cue for a song.

    “I’ve spoken with him about it and he just laughs nervously.”

    I can see his point….

    Unbelievably the sun is shining today.

    Hey Fings ! Nice one, the endless wheel of time, which is an illusion, and we don’t know what time is. Most puzzling.

    Maybe time is an illusion resulting from movement, which is a tricky concept as we are used to thinking of movement as something that happens in time. So that’s probably not right – like I said, we don’t understand time so there’s no chance a comment like this one on CiFU is going to find an answer 🙂

    In the meantime (hoho, there might be a pun there or something), it’s sunny today, off to find a paper to read !

    Happy birthday, Fings. xxx

    Speaking of footy, ’twas a nice start to the Premiership season, eh? Arsenal won. Chelski lost.

    And in Scotland – where we’re on the second week – Celtic won again & The Huns lost. Je je.

    Barça v Real Madrid in the 1st leg of the Supercopa de España tonight. And it’s live on Sky. Yay!

    Off to Morrisons in the sun…

    “A rogue seagull ripped off a man’s right testicle as he sunbathed naked in his back garden, it has emerged.

    Experts say the fearsome bird mistook the man’s exposed privates as a couple of birds eggs and dropped in for a tasty snack.

    As the man – who has not been named – dozed on his patio in his detached home near Ipswich, the seagull swooped from the sky, and with one bite of its beak ripped away the right testicle.

    He woke screaming in agony, and saw the bird flying away with one of his ‘crown jewels’ wedged in its yellow beak.

    His wife called an ambulance, and staff at Ipswich Hospital’s accident and emergency department had to patch him up, and give him a course of antibiotics to prevent infection.

    A hospital source said: “Nobody could quite believe it when the poor chap was brought in. There was a lot of blood and he was in agony, but he will feel better in a few weeks.”

    Happy birthday, Fings. Hope you’re having/have had a lovely day.

  14. neartheclocktower says :

    Just had a look at ff. Couldn’t possibly comment! 🙂

  15. polly says :

    Ouch, to say the least Emms. The moral of this story is only sunbathe nude well inland.

    Winning, Clocks?

    Are you watching the ida de la Supercopa tonight? We’ve got it on Sky here. Am gonna get all nervous as per – though I’ll have some beer to calm me down.

    Just organised for my mate & I to stay in Ribes while we’re over. Will mostly be in Barcelona though & will be up for a wee meet if you like, Clocks. (And I can sign that book for you. 😉 )

  17. neartheclocktower says :

    Xen, as I said, I couldn’t possibly comment.

    I haven’t checked if the Supercopa is on any of the channels we’ve got. Will have a look.

    Great news. Yes, let’s meet up. I haven’t finished that book yet – well it’s a such a long volume 😉 OK, I’m rationing the stories in between reading Watership Down.

    Happy birthday, Fings.
    Emms, a friend had told me about the seagull story on LJ. I wondered if they could be trained to do it on command. There are some members of the government I’d like to try this on. That’s assuming they have anything for the gulls to make off with.

    Anyone in particular in mind Nuits? I have to say the resistible rise of Jacob Rees Mogg is concerning….

  21. polly says :

    Very good comment on the Graun (for once a well deserved pick)

    “Much is made of the assertion that men may not have the upbringing or emotional literacy to talk about their feelings. Commentators and onlookers frequently say “If only he had asked for help…” “Why didn’t he tell us how he was feeling…” “Men need to learn how to talk about their feelings…”

    What is missed by all these observations is that for a man (or woman) to be able to talk about their mental health, there must be someone prepared to listen – and the pre-conceived conventions about men not discussing their mental health may make those around them uncomfortable and unwilling to participate. Possibly.”

    All the stuff about ‘opening up’ about mental health makes the rather bizarre assumption that everyone is surrounded by a hoard of sympathetic people desperate to help. Which is rarely the case I suspect. It’s what’s so irritating about that ‘time to change’ bollox.

  22. polly says :

    There’s a whole string of excellent responses as well. Here if you fancy a read.

    Happy Birthday Fings

    Sorry I’m a bit late today.

    Polly – He’s one. Boris is another. As is Dr Fox, whom I would certainly be in favour of hunting with dogs; not to mention Messrs Farage and Trump…
    I console myself with fantasising about letting my latest pin-up boy and friends sort them out… Boris does have a passing physical resemblance to Louis XVI, after all… ;-D

    Bru, you and some of the others may fancy this:

    There are some wonderful costume ones, if you rummage through the list!

    A favourite song, with a wonderful rather Sarah Waters-ish video:

    Time To Change is just UKGOV bollocks run by R****** and National M***. Money for nothing.

  29. justamentalpatient says :

    Hope you had a lovely day with dogfing (but not like that), fings.
    Happy birthday, chick.

    Something weird last night: couldn’t post…

  33. Sleepychow says :

    You’re welcome, birthday girl.

    Where’s the cake?

    Ah …

    *someone* must’ve eaten it before it got on CU.

    Never mind.
