Through His Eyes, Awkwardly



I've got this on Tamla Motown's 20 Mod Classics and I'd upload it for you were it not for that pesky box.net bandwidth issue.  Also, today I picked up my new varifocal lenses and I'm feeling woozy with them - this before I've touched a drop, too.

Onward, awkwardly onward, to the corner shop for Guinness.

  1. Hmmm - varifocals: I tried but failed, never got over the woozy stage.

    Hmmm - Diana Ross: I tried but failed. Liked plenty of the Supremes stuff and early Diana (I'm Still Waiting, Remember Me), but the older I get the more Diana's voice grates with me.

    Guinness: now that's another story.

  6. I never got any of that woozy thing last year when I got my first pair of varifocals or I was too depressed that I was officially middle aged to notice.

    Not a Supremes song that I am familiar with, I'm usually in Darcy's camp re Miss Ross, however I found that toi be a jaunty little number for a Friday evening. Cheers Mr H

  12. Talking of the big nosed bard from Barking,, he was excellent on Wednesday night even with a band and steel guitar in incongruous surroundings. And I got a new Brewing Up mug to replace the one I accidentally broke about 18 months ago but it is a slightly different and less easy on the eye design

  13. Sorry if you know this one already, but all the other jokes I know are dirty:

    Three logicians walk into a bar. The bartender asks if they would all like a drink. The first logician says "I'm not sure." The second logician says "I'm not sure." The third logician says "Yes."

  14. How many rare soul fans does it take to change a light bulb?

    Only one but 400 others will moan about it not being as good as the original

    1. That was FANTASTIC. I laughed for 10 minutes flat!.
      I raise you this one:

      How many jokes are there about music critics?

      Three. All the other ones are actually real life facts.

  15. I've got that 20 Mod Classics album, Vol.2 as well. They might have been Mod Revival cash-ins but they're bloody great albums.

    How many folk singers does it take to change a light bulb?

    Two. One to change the bulb and one to write a song about how good the old one was.

  17. 12:30 am - so just in time - afore Glo tugs the bell's end. Been a nice evening all told ... following a bit of a black dog of a week. A variety of drinks either side of Sandra Bullock dangling about in 3D Gravity. Film made me laugh out loud; but I don't think it was a comedy. Could be wrong.
    Rugby League World Cup Final tomorrow in Manchester. As it's Anzac-based, British neutrals will be even more beer-centric than normal. Consequently, I expect to be comotose by the time I reach a post-match Altrincham TravelTavern in the Timperley Sunset, where I'll unsuccessfully try to enforce the follow-on with an Eastern European chambermaid.
    Guinness and bed for me.
    I love you all.

  18. I'll stay for a nightcap with Dickie, as long as there are no more light bulb jokes
