Autumn Look 2007


I have stumbled on this new look and I have to say I am quite taken with it. The pavement clears before me, I get rapid, deferential treatment in shops and on the road. I expect there are all sorts of other advantages to going around looking like this but I haven't figured them all out yet.

When I was a kid all the women in Tooting High Street used to look like that every Saturday morning. Just had their hair done, full of curlers, getting ready for an evening on the town. Plus ca change...

Like the shades very much - how were your hols?

Lilith said...

Nomad, I was thinking of trying it out at the Bingo..

TT, they were good. Missed Boyfriend, so they were a couple of days too long...Camping with friends, and their children, people I only see once or twice a year. Gert Lush. Lots of sunshine. Felt like cheating! I mean, sunshine + camping ???

Lilith said...

I am glad you like the shades TT...I am worried they are a little passe...ie not BIG enough...

Nice teeth.

Hope you had a great time, Lilith.

Missed you.

Lilith said...

And they are all me own E-K! Thanks. I missed you too.

None other than King (then Prince) Abdullah of Jordan gave me one of those headcoverings when we were at Sandhurst togther, along with the black thingy that sits on top of the bonce and keeps it all under control.

I wore it with confidence for years but stopped when lady idle told me I looked like Yasser Arafat.

Lilith said...

Splendid Idle!

My Yasser Arafat story is that my Ex used his picture as a cursor on his PC until his Jewish girlfriend told him not to. He has been doing whatever she tells him ever since (even though they broke up three years ago!)

You couldn't possibly be as plain as Mr Arafat, Idle. Mdme Idle was just being cruel to get her point across ie. that if she had wanted a Saudi Prince she would have married one.

Lilith: Check Trubes new site and comment please ! Is that really you ?

idle said...

Kind of you, Lilith. I'm a dasher really.

But the dishcloth and black thingy reappear tomorrow night at a dance for which the theme is 1001 Nights.

If the camera doesn't break I might post a piccy.

Carrying an egg and pretending to sneeze while defty crushing it allowing albumen to flow freely onto your fingers always gets you a seat on the train.
Screaming and clutching your fist to your eye whilst opening a sachet of tomato ketchup clears a good space if you are attending an open air Misumnmer Nightts Dream or prom.
...and vinegar is really good for putting on chips ( handy tip)

Lilith said...

Trubes, you have to enable comments so that we can comment!

Newmania, you're brilliant!

Oh Lillith....mercy!!

Mermaid of Moorgate said...

AND you never need fear a wet tea cup again as you will always have a ready made drying implement

Lilith said...

Quite so Mermaid! All spillages can be immediately taken care of, and that pesky windscreen mist. If there is a dropout at the school nativity play I can provide a replacement costume for the understudy...oh the advantages!

Scroblene said...

Lilith - great to have you back after your field experience!

Merms beat me to it about drying up, which either means that neither of us have washing up machines (we don't), or that we are inextricably linked to 'T cloths - R - Us' home sales warehouse for alternative uses of implements in the home...

Did you get bitten at all (by mosquitos not persons...)?

Lilith said...

Oh Scroblene! We got Little Dog yesterday. It is mayhem here. Blissful mayhem.

No mossies on camp trip, but lots here...someone must have an old tyre full of water nearby...

The Splund said...

Hi Lilith - love the blog (sorry, coming over all steve wright there).. re the mozzies - the Splund's fortified enclave is infested with the ghastly little brutes as well at the moment.. guess it must be something to do with the wet summer. have fun with Little Dog
