    No Jean! No feedback! Sob! May as well get lobotomised and go and listen to the Whocast!

    Grumbles aside, bearable work as always.

    Bod be with you

    Let’s not be silly!! You know where Jean was and the feedback will be back to its lengthy best next time – we just had a running-out-of-time issue with this one. Sorry!

    Now who’s got a sense of humour failure!!!

    ….see, I’ve got a looooong memory.

    Only kidding. I’m a big boy, well too big, truth be told. As the old joke goes…. when I sit around the house, I sit AROUND the house.
    Where was Jean anyway, apart from Stratford, taking one for the nation. Ooer.
    Toodles (he says, keeping a sunny exterior whilst summoning the great Bodzilla)

    Sure you are a fella wyn? Tony seems to think you are a Lady.
    Anyway where was my letter from this week?
    I will post the full length here.

    Dear team,
    Try and abbreviate this letter why don’t you?

    All the best,

    Yes, apparently it was scientifically proven. Came as a shock to the missus to find out she was gay.

    Tried to be a woman before, gave it up, restrictive standards of personal hygiene. Stopped the operation 5 minutes it, so I’m left with a twoskin.
