It's that time of year when you have to open the windows and let the flies in. Flies - doncha love 'em? With their flying about and landing near ya and their superfast metabolism so when you try to swat them it's like they got a fortnight to get out of the way when they see ya! They're so cocky! Enough about flies, let us turn our thoughts to more cheerful things. Like spiders! Spiders catch flies - good for them! I killed a fly the other day, I am so tough. I haven't had one since, I think they know that I'm a ruthless killer now and keep away. I was watching Michael Palin in the Sahara earlier, he wasn't getting bothered by flies earlier as far as I could tell. I watched until the bit where I'd switched on, like the old movies, 'this is where we came in,' a reference they youngsters won't get now. It was before my time, but in case you don't know what happened was they used to go into films at any point and leave when it came around again. Perhaps if you were inclined to want to start at the beginning in those days your parents would think you were a bit funny and send you to the doctor, I don't know, nor do I know when it became the norm to watch them from the start, nor when cinemas stopped permitting the old slackness. UK History still has about 3 adverts a month on heavy rotation, at the moment i hate Tesco car insurance, confused.com and the Citroen C3, especially with their supposedly technically clever advert which is just creepy because The Fonz's electronically transplanted head doesn't quite fit the substitute body correctly. Anne went home this morning but I'll be down there on Tuesday, so I'll only get a little bit of peace, I mean despair. Excuse I, I have to go fetch my chicken hunter. Tally ho!
