summer school

some of you young scamps may think you're on holiday now but the bona school never closes. we're at it all day and every night with barely enough time off for a round of crazy golf down the arnold palmer and a celebratory gin and it with the coarse pro.

so here's... g!

g is for

goolie ogle fakes
- why say sunglasses when this is so much easier


meaning jewelery. you know it's what gerald ratner would've used


meaning fancy

and back in the world of the slightly less limp wristed g is for

good gawd
as on 'oh my good gawd' as said by captain of industry arthur daley about ten times every episode of minder and even more in our house what with arthur being one of our all time favourite dodgy londoners of all time.
and i want membership of the winchester. ' vodka slimline please dave, and put it on the slate'.
we've recently ploughed through all of the sweeney and all but the last two serieses of minder and i can't recommend them enough.

and what with me still feeling a bit punky and angular this morning g can be for the gang of four as well.

gang of four - damaged goods

I will now think of you, in your tailored three-piece suit and cashmere coat, stepping out of your Jag or – later – pale primrose Daimler Sovereign Series 3, to utter the immortal words “the world is your lobster” before chasing your “nice little earners” while escaping the attentions of DS “Cheerful Charlie” Chisholm.
I’ve always fancied myself as a Terry “Terence” McCann figure. Handy with my fists, an eye for skirt but retaining a moral conscience in the face of dodgy dealings.

Thank you ally, thank you thank you thank you for the opportunity to hear Damaged Goods in its original version for the first time in nearly 30 years. Looks like I'll have to post the album version when I get round to Gang Of Four on Teenage Kicks...rats!
