Perfect Numbers

by 3arn0wl

Garry Baldie used the digits he always used – and won a Godiva on the scratch cards;

Emily & Alistair (and Yan) have invited ᗡႱ & JD and Joe round for a meal. They reckon they’ve got the balance about right.

Antonín Biskup likes 1.61:1. He uses the proportions wherever he can;

Tom Bell gets excited by what he considers to be a perfect number – 362436;

And Justin thinks it’s the perfect date to go on a first date with Oli.

ᗡႱ‘s signed up for gym membership at Poppleton Leisure Centre – JD wants him to get a six-pack.

Poppy wants Andy to get a six-pack too – but he’s going to get his from the Flying Pig.

“Husband!” “Shepherd!” “Have you any wool?” “Yes Trish!” “Yes Em!” “Three bags full.” One for the dame, and one for the dame, and one for the dame who’s having a jolly long scarf knitted.

It’s the annual sheep shearing competition over @ Gawthrop Farm, and as usual Margot Lemon’s fleecing the flock.  A more unlikely sheep shearer are you likely to find,  as she stands there in her twinset and pearls,  doing a ewe a minute.

She’s not overly discriminatory though,  so I wouldn’t get too close:

  • ᗡႱ’s already had a number two,

Post hoc ergo propter hoc

When the Mayor of Poppleton cut the ribbon on Simon’s new ventureRe:Cycle – he had no idea how it would take off:

  • Emily Appleby brought in her unicycle and exchanged it for a bike trailer;

How Will coveted that pedalo. He’ll need some stabilizers though if he’s planning to attach the propeller to his glider!

Blessed are the geeks: for they shall inherit the Earth

Will was going to spend the day programming his new Raspberry – and when (after about a quarter of an hour) he realises he can’t do that, he’ll watch all six Star Wars films, one after another.

Justin Case’s cut some lilac to wear. He’s got a hard-boiled egg and treacle sandwiches in his packed lunch, which he’s going to eat at the cenotaph with Hugh.

ᗡႱ will be modeling his dressing gown and carrying his towel all day. He’s going to read the latest anthology of Vogon Love Poetry to JD later.

As for Ivy Newbrush, she’ll be playing Angry Birds at every opportunity.

Match Report

by 3arn0wl

The cricket season’s here again, and the Snodding & Sniffy side have challenged Chorley University’s First 11 to a match:

@ the crease

Harry Driver drove through the covers for a boundary;

Andy got caught L-B;

Oliver Over’s over’s over.  He’s out for a quack – ran out by Godwin Heal.  Captain Rupert, Lord Snodding’s had a good innings though. He’s got a century – looks like the 15th.

And @ tea, Crispin & Jonathan were two not out!

In the field

ᗡႱ bowled a maiden over;

Hugh Wood delivered a googly which Ray Burns blocked;

And Poppy was caught delivering a full toss behind the pavillion.

[I’ve absolutely no idea what any of this means]

You make me feel so young

Juan thought that the neatly-bordered wild flowers in the meadow section of Poppleton Park were looking particularly lush at the mohment.

J.W.’s been busy mowing and bagging up grass @ the church. It’s like the Forth bridge – as soon as he finishes, he has to start all over again.

And there was an incident in the Food Hall at Lewis’ & John’s earlier this morning, as an “unidentified item in the bagging area” transformed into a U.F.O. when Granny Smith flung the carrier bag expertly across the room.  Maybe her ‘shopping rage’ will catapult her into the Olympic Shot Put team.
