The Simon Day performing at the Mill Road Winter festival isn't that Simon Day.

Yet that was enough time to hatch maggots for raining down on you.

About 3 or 4 days, so yep.

Applying the inverse flounce rule, with a bit of luck he’ll be back soon. Serious about leaving? Just stop posting and never look back. Delete my account = see you tomorrow. I say this as someone who’s flounced hard at least once in my CaB history. You hurt the ones you love.

I took a week off CaB and my screen time decreased 48% which is good (or bad, depending on how you look at it...)

Back in a less active capacity now so we’ll see how that goes.

I only come in here when I'm at work, & then only nights & weekends. which is why there's these bursts of activity & then silence. I have a week off every month... a week off everything, pretty much... when I'm in madrid with the mrs & kids. couldn't cope otherwise.

I enjoy reading all three of you's posts.

I take breaks as well, usually when I'm on a break I stay away from the news as well. Have to recharge my soul.

Judge Rinder pronounces his surname rin-der rather than like the fat on bacon.

Just makes him more preposterous if anything.

I don't know if this is obvious (or even true), but Teen Moth earlier made a bid for inclusion in this thread by telling me that the origin of the phrase "break a leg" stems, not from theatrical performances, but from theatrical auditions; and by telling somebody to "break a leg" you're hoping they'll end up... IN THE CAST.

This was floating around the internet a couple of weeks ago and seems absolutely dubious.

I broke my leg once and ended up in The Cast. There must have been around 200 of us in that thing. Side by side, our legs were adjoined with bandages and plaster.
When we tried walking it looked like a dance routine from a Busby Berkeley film.

It was only fairly recently I realised, possibly after some googling, the Gregorian calendar wasn't devised on 0/1AD.

I'm an apathetic-agnostic/apathetic-athiest (apathiest?) so fuck knows why I never really questioned it.

Why though?  She doesn’t use pens.

I've spent my whole life thinking that ostriches lived in Australia among the kangaroos, drop-bears and bogans. Now Richard Osman informs me they're native to Africa.

I also thought it was spelled 'ostritch' until my browser's spellchecker flagged it just now.

She uses crayons, not pens.

I’m asking why her first name is a reference to pens when she never uses pens.

The theme is equivocal on this point - Penny herself does not possess any superhuman abilities. All of her power is derived from her magic crayons. If she were to use a normal crayon or, indeed, a pen, whatever it was she drew would not walk, talk, come to life, or create 'lots of bother'. This seems screamingly obvious if you consider that she likely needs to complete forms etc without everything coming off the page to the perpetual amazement of Dennis. Therefore she must have a pen. This matter is now closed.

The 'clunk' in 'clunk-click' refers to the closure of the car door and is not a component of the seat belt bucklement.
