At last they invent a sat nav for Elby


Elby the Beserk said...

But I LIKE getting lost! Especially deep in Somerset Hillbilly country :-)

Philipa said...

Funny Vid. But any such sat-nav would go out the window if it didn't have an off function on Bob's voice.

If they invented one for me it would have to be PH's voice wouldn't it? - 'well anyone with any sense would take the train but as you're bottomlessly stupid you deserve to get lost, in fact I wish you would.'

I'll stick with my Navman.

Pip, this blog is a PH free zone :-)

idle said...

Don't go canoeing down the river Frome through the hillbilly country, elby.

We don't want you 'squealin like a pig'.

Elby is considering taking up the banjo, Idle.

Got Calfy back from her flying visit to Italy and she is playing us the Duckworth Lewis Method. Excellent album. You got it Idle?

idle said...

I haven't bought it, lil, but I've heard a few songs. But it is on spotify and I will listen to it today between considering employment, picking up the idle dog after an op at the vet, and communing with nature.

idle said...

Okay, I've listened to it.

On first take, like a lot of Divine Comedy stuff, it seems pleasant but lightweight, with the odd novelty number thrown in. Having said that, several Divine Comedy albums rewarded second and third listenings much more than one would have imagined, and turned into favourites. I am less sure about this album.

I met Mr Miandad, too. A memorable dinner at a client's flat in the late 80s. Not as memorable as meeting Imran for dinner in Lahore, though. There are great batsman (Javed Miandad was unquestionably a great batsman), and then there are cricketing Gods. Imran was the latter. What a personality; pity his political ambitions have come (predictably, in that crooked country) to nothing.

Lils - it's the tail-gater's and morons sign that does it...!

I just checked here for a few titles, and had to end up with...

1) Crash on the Levee (down in the flood).
2) Dirt Road Blues.
3) Highway 61 revisted (again; twice, and yet again...)

and my favourite, which may make you look forward to the weekend...

4) Baby let me follow you down...

Don't say I didn't warn you! ;0)

I totally agree with you Lil, if anyone is'bottomly stupid' it is PH.
He's really insulted Pippy with his crass comments, pompous opinionated prig he is. So there!
We've got Sat nav and it sure is useful and most accurate.
A nice lady tells us where to go and DT, ever the gentleman, always thanks her, when she's finished giving us directions!
I think he secretly enjoyed being bossed about by a woman.


lilith said...

Idle, I think it's another grower. Calfy has been using the drip drip technique to introduce me to it and I find myself singing it these days.

Of COURSE you have met Mr Miandad, as well as the lush Mr Khan. Is there anyone of note you haven't met? If so put it right immediately! Blimey.

Trubes, I think a lot of men secretly enjoy being bossed by their women. I can't be bothered to boss a man. If he wants to be bossed he should, as you suggest, get a sat nav (or stay with his mother.) I have enough trouble motivating myself.

idle said...

I appear to have dropped something on this comment thread. Two things, actually.

And now if you'll escuse me lil, we are off to drinks with .........

not telling.

lilith said...

Yes, Idle, careless of you, but I will look after them, until we meet again...:-)
