Long term blue cat readers may remember my closest friend (heretofor referred to as 'B.M.') as having extremely long hair, to the extent that in the course of one evening she had to be untangled from a hedge, a chair and a bench, only to send a text later that night to tell me that she had got caught up once again whilst preparing for bed and had fallen over. Keep in mind also this post, and you can practically see the vectors colliding.
Went to a leaving party thing for a friend who's off to India for four months (don't know why), and managed to have the following conversation approximately three and a half half seconds after entering the building and walking past some candles.
ME: What's that smell?
B.M.: My hair's on fire.
ME: Is it?
ME: Because it seems more the sort of thing I'd do.
B.M.: No no, I really have set my hair on fire.
The smell of burnt hair is now wafting across the room, causing people (some of whom I haven't seen in about ten years) to grab handfuls of their own hair and stare in puzzlement. Apart from Tarkus, who's bald now, but has a beautiful wife, so it balances out.
B.M.: It's out now.
B.M.: Although look, I can pull out great handfuls of hair!
ME: Probably stop then.
Later I sit in a side room, staring at a widescreen television, which for some kerazee! reason has been installed sideways. Wonder Woman is hanging from a helicopter. Sideways. Even with the sound off, it's an arresting image.
GW2 now scheduled for 31st March, according to the very good British Sitcom Guide, and C4 are starting to put up teaser trailers, the first few of which have already started floating about the net, free for the finding. The writers got to be involved in these (I think the ad people who were supposed to be doing them got scared), and there should be some rather nifty posters coming along later as well.
