*pondering whether Jason Statham ::sigh:: would act in movie about the escapades of a gay, bus-driving, time-travelling superhero*
Oh, hello there. Umm, what was I going to talk about. *mumble, mumble* Oh, right. Those ridicu-, errr, awesome ideas that Clare got for her story. Here they are:
1. the setting~
A double decker bus. Look what I found when I was avoiding work today by trawling for pics of a sexy double decker bus. It’s David Tennant! *Back in Sean’s good book. YAY!*
A chip butty. Yummy! Guess what Kris will be having for dinner. *Nom, nom, nom.*
3. another character~
A Bobby. How can that idea possibly be interesting?? Yowser. Okay, I’m with you now.
4. a conflict~
If Number 10 Downing Street really is a portal to another world? I’m so glad that there are other believers out there. The proof is in photographs like this where they have to pretend the place is under quarantine. *rolls eyes* As if!
From Reuters/Stefan Wermuth.
5. a phrase~
“But I’m the only gay in the village.” I’m a fan. What can I say. 🙂
6. an object to be mentioned in the story somewhere~
A butterfly net. A butterfly net??? *mutterbunchofweirdosmutter*
O_O Holy Cow. Where’s my net??
Over to you now, Clare. *tick, tick, tick* Shall we say Thursday 18 June? *tick, tick, tick* Great! Oh, and we’ll talk about that script idea for Jason later. 🙂
May the Muse be with you.
*Is that Kris’ new catch cry for these story things?* *I like it.* *Well, it’s not really anything new, is it.* *No, but let’s face it. She’s no creative genius is sh-… She’s watching, isn’t she??* *Gotta go.* *Oh sheeeeeiiittt….*
*searches for inspiration*
*goes looking for chocolate*
I'll be in touch! Honest!! 🙂
This method of author torture needs its own BDSM genre…. LOL
A double-decker bus, a butterfly net and 'I'm the only gay in the village'.
*pats Clare's hand*
You have my sympathies… I would say we were evil but….it's so much fun reading the finished product 🙂
Nah, you're still in the bad books.
Good luck, Clare! I have complete faith in you.
Clare: *mmmm, chocolate*
Ooooh, author/reader BDSM sub-genre. I could go for that. LOL.
Orannia: That would be 'we' exclusive of me/Kris, right??
Sean: You're Irish, aren't you? *Friggin grudge holders. The lot of 'em!*
Heeeeeeeee!! Can't wait for this, even if I only got one of my choices. How could you not vote for Yorkshire Puddings? *pouts*.
The butterfly net got in!!!!
I'm a very happy Mumma.
But Jen… chip buttys!!! Altho I did want to see what Clare could do with a Time Team dig. LOL.
HA!!! I told you the Mumma was evuuulll!!
Clare, it's not only K Z's fault, but the Mumma's. They're so mean.
Okay, call me a puritanical Canadian but that sandwich looks AWFUL. My god, could it be any more unhealthy? Oh wait, deep fry it now and slather it with gravy. (Oh wait, now its starting to sound rather delicious.)
I can't believe traffic cone didn't get in. The versatility of those things is amazing. They are the next big thing.
Good luck Clare, I think you'll need it but I have faith in your abilities.
The bread in that picture is not processed enough for a proper chip buttie. And for goodness sake, everyone knows you have HP sauce in them, not tomato. Philistines.
Wow what a collection of ideas! Clare I hope your inspiration hat is HUGE! lol
Kris – you actually eat those chip butty's. oh gross.
WTF with that sammich? Because there aren't enough carbs in the bread or fries alone? I think that's actually worse than Domino's pasta in a bread bowl.
my sincerest condolences Clare *g*
But Kris, fries on bread?? Next time you are going to throw in the fried mars bar?
Ingrid: I went to the NY state fair once (the smell of grease was overwhelming) but a very popular item was deep fried twinkies (on a stick of course) with chocolate sauce on them. Like a twinkie isn't unhealthy enough, lets dip them in batter and deep fry them. Yum. (gag) My daughter showed me deep fried oreos on the internet. Seems if you can eat it, you can deep fry it.
Tam that sounds… eeh not so nice
Fries mars bar is a scottish “delicacy”
I rather have fries with mayo or sateh sauce and bread with old dutch cheese. Not together!
You are all bloody strange. There's a cutie dressed up as a butterfly and you all focus on the chipp butty?? Granted it IS delicious, but… umm, hello, mostly nekkid prettie with nipple rings prancing around in a butterfly costume?? WTF people! Your priorities are just WRONG!!!
Must have been dinner time *g*
*checks time one message * Yup, it was
*getting out scales to weigh up food vs butterfly boy*
Umm, no. You're still all odd.
Ok I'm stuck on Emmy saying that Domino's has pasta in a bread bowl. WTF? roflmao! That's nice right.
Kris – see I think it's because we've come to expect the butterfly men and while they are extra uber-delish that chip butty is disturbing. Therefore it is the nightmare we can't get out of our heads. (I'm making it up as I go along, is it working?) lol
Are you saying that you are getting tired of my pretties, Tracy?? I can stop posting them if you are.
I had NO idea what a “chip butty” was (kind of sounded to me like an ass/arse with acne scabs), which is why I didn't vote for it. But I still say marmite should be in the story somewhere.
(Oh please, Clare! You have no idea how that evil ooze traumatized me when I was in England. I sacrificed a quarter of my taste buds, and sanity, when I politely ate it. Another quarter was surrendered to some flippin' Lancashire pepper pot devil stew or whatever the hell it was. I need vindication!)
Oh, BTW, are we speaking yet? 😉
Kris, your avatar is really starting to sniggle me out. On my monitor, I can only see the silhouette topped by a rosy tangle … which is, believe me, creepy in the extreme. And I still haven't gotten over that picture of CJ.
Just letting you know you'll be getting a bill from my therapist.
I had NO idea what a “chip butty” was (kind of sounded to me like an ass/arse with acne scabs)
My husband thinks there's something seriously wrong with me since I've been laughing for the last 5 minutes over this. That is just too damned funny.
Krs – Don't you dare stop posting your pretties…just in this instance he got a tad overshadowed by the french fry thing I can't believe you actually eat. You really eat that?
*wondering how K Z could possibly think that the fact the avator disturbs her is incentive for changing it*
*therapist bill vs messing with K Z's head*
Tracy: Both pretties and chip butties are yummy. They will stay.
I adore Little Britain and the Banksy pic. I have it above my bed. ;p
I got the pic for a friend of mine for Christmas one year. I've never seen him laugh so hard. 🙂
Tell me do you speak Anne?? My baby brother and I do to each other all the time. Besides getting very odd looks from people, it drives the family nuts. LOL.
These comments are a story in themselves *teehee*.
I can tell you, the chip butty is much appreciated, I can't understand why so many of your super-sensitive visitors find it repulsive *lmao*. There is *nothing* like the taste of chips on melting butter and – as Jen says – on thin white processed bread. That's what's made Britian great, you know (and my waistline).
And I was wondering how long before someone mentioned fried Mars bars – well done, Ingrid! LOL
I'm struggling with the Little Britain phrase because I don't like the series but *hey*, sacrifices must be made for Art.
KZ – of course we're talking again, sweetcheeks. I've sent you a special, bumper pot of marmite as a gift for you to treasure. *smirk*
You don't put sauce on a chip butty! What is wrong with you people?
Lots of butter and salt, and just the chips.
And Kris, be careful of what could arrive in your mailbox. *nods*
“I can't understand why so many of your super-sensitive visitors find it repulsive.”
They're very strange people, Clare. I bet all of them are saying they think it looks disgusting, but are secretly wishing they weren't on diets at the moment.
“But *hey*, sacrifices must be made for Art.”
See Clare. Now you are getting into the spirit of things. *GRIN*
Don't listen to Sean. Think ketchup and lots of it!!
Sean: It takes someone with Irish DNA to recognise another is all I'm saying. 🙂
