"smitten beyond recognition"..... Very good prof. Another 2 have 'snuck up' for no reason at all. Wonder who the culprit(s) is/are (said in a very sarcastic way). I'm looking for you when I'm next in Dudlaaaaay or Tipton, and I'll make sure the last few syllables in my sentence rise to a crescendo on a par with MJ's wailing in the BITF version of C'mon. :)

Not guilty M'lud! I've strictly been on the plus side. Anyone who sticks by their local team through thick and thin gets no smite from me!

The annoying tendency actually has a name ... the 'antipodean rising inflection' ... from youthful lips it is marginally less annoying than ending every single sentence and statement with 'like' or ' know what I mean?' or 'yeah' ... know what I mean?

Fifers(that's people from the Kingdom of, not players of the flute type instrument) are also prone to end every sentence on a rising inflection as if they were asking a question.....ken? So, any secret east of Scotland connections young Rob??

He's back   :)  :)   :)


No East Scotland connections, though I did meet AH at the Renfrew Ferry once. Now I know the Renfrew Ferry is not East Scotland, but I got so lost, I was nearer Aberdeen than Glagow!!

And funnily enough, whilst driving last night, not thinking about it as such, but it came to me in a flash of inspiration. The Welsh do this ending a sentence with rise in tone and they always end the sentence with a question....don't they?  ;)

The annoying plethora of i-Phones and similar devices being used to photograph/video live performances these days. It's a real distraction when you're looking over the heads of other spectators and these little screens pop up all over the place.

That pi$$we me off too but was at Joe Cockers latest tour and if anyone put a phone or camera up for more than a few seconds the stewards were aiming laser beams at them, think it would only spoil the picture while aimed at.

This time of year it's the tw*ts who drive around with their fog lights on as well as their headlights. Tw*ts!

Martin, be careful, Mr Woolfe doesn't like excesive use of the Tw*t word.  He's commented on how often I've used it in the past.  But what a fine resonance the word has.
