A treat and some puzzles for the Mistress

Last night I had a surprise guest who brought me a delicious Thai feast - red duck curry and green chicken curry and a bottle of wine. Despite the red and green theme the surprise guest was not Father Christmas, which was just as well as I strongly oppose Christmas in July. What a “sucky”, as Melbourne teens used to say, concept.

The guest was not only a surprise but also a mystery for she claims to only go by the name of Lady. So to paraphrase the great troubadour, John Swan, i'd like to say, Lady, what's your name, may I thank you for the treat and talk to you of things inane.

Speaking of Swanee, well, i have just learnt that one of my friends, another wannabe senior, natch, who has retired to Western NSW, has become an acquaintance of Swanee's half brother Barnsey. Not that Barnsey lives in the country any more but this 40 year old retiree (? ridiculous, I know) met Barnsey through a friend a month or so ago while visiting Sydney . I guess Barnsey needs some new pals after leaving the southern highlands for Sydney. Lots of people left that area after Maggie T and Dickie Z split. Now said retiree catches up with the B during his visits to Sydney and recently spent a lot of time hanging out with B chez B and watching the world cup soccer. Retiree thinks Barnsey is tops. I don't know what to think - when in doubt snigger and blog.

Personally I just like seeing this picture of a woollen humpty

Mistress Bel said...

yes, let's just bring it back to you for once, dear Hump.

Personally I must say myself if you don't mind that it is an astonishingly accurate and adorable portrait.

You are indeed one lucky bastard.

On the subject of Barnesy, I must say I am greatly enjoying Don Walker's new album. I never really cared about Don Walker before. Now I do - I won't say deeply - but it's a great album.

Greg and I told Shane about Hunters and Collectors the other day. You'd think his parents would of told him but no.

Send DW some fancy cigars and brandy, his favourite vices.

You shouldn't of told shane about H&C, he was conceived to fro your arms around me and it's liable to trigger some heavy rockin' (to and throw that is).

Now Mark Seymour will have to put out an avo on Shane. No offence, Shane, but you do like to stalk a pop star and heckle at shows.

Was the penis an isosceles or an equilateral I forget

Shane is the original Dr Heckle and Mr Jive

Mistress Bel said...

Yes, indeed with a fixation on Percy's Progress thrown in for good measure. He is positively a Renaissance man.

But enough of Shane, let's get back to you.

I've been admiring that Hump portrait again and couldn't help but notice that little parcel on Hump's left, a brick or hump's dump?

You need to focus on the main game

Mistress Bel said...

Ohwuh. I do so focus on the main game, i'm always being accused of going under the radar.
