  1. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    To be fair, the poo train's engine is seriously bangin'
  2. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    You, sir, are a legend! I can (vaguely) recall a similar episode that happened to me one year at Glasto. The year is a little bit hazy, but I think it was probably 2014, as that's the only time I've been solo, and I don't remember having to endure any withering looks of pity and embarrassment the next morning. It may well have been on my way back to my tent after the efests meet. I was ambling through the market areas, somewhere between William's Green and Pyramid, I think, when I heard what sounded to me like some catchy electro tune. I paused, to let my brain absorb it, and found my limbs moving in time, so I went with it. As I was a little worse for wear, it wasn't long before I needed to pause and get my breath back, and that's when I noticed the refuse truck reversing behind me.

    Ooh, we just had a power cut! Got the house lit by candles just before the lights came back on. Bit disappointed now, it looked rather nice! Ophelia seems to be causing a bit of a stir Thanks, @dizzymoo. I'm going to be working for Lidl. Not particularly glamorous, and unlikely to make me rich, but it'll be good to interact with adult humans for a change! You're quite right, by the way, a tomato is a berry, as are aubergines and cucumbers. Don't think I'd make wine out of any of them, though!

    I'm also going Iberian! It's my mother in law's 70th next month, but she decided that rather than having a party, she'd like a family holiday. We've booked a villa about an hour east of Malaga, for the in laws, their 3 daughters plus partners, and the 5 grandchildren. Should be good timing for me, a chance to relax and refresh before I start my new job a few days after we get back Whereabouts on Mallorca are you headed? Only been there once myself, to Cala Marçal, but it was a lovely trip.

    We're heading off on hollibobs next weekend, too Where are you off to?

    I'm guessing you might be thinking of Parsley the lion, Yog.

    Good point, digger! How about this: A gin-sozzled ginger cat, singing the Hallelujah chorus, and then falling over a wheelbarrow.
  8. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    You can talk about it being made of oranges as much as you like, but it is clearly a ginger cat, and that's just about as 'lucy' as you can get. The only thing I can think of, that would've made it more 'lucy', is if it'd been made animatronic, and was singing the Hallelujah chorus! xx

    Not sure that's a sentence I ever expected to read!
  10. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    I have to agree on the eyes subject. I think they would remove the element of doubt, and make it far more 'safe'. I also, however, have to disagree with you too, Yog. As Mrs gumby has been a social worker for 15 years, I am fully aware that if someone contacted social services complaining about the disturbing nature of a fruit-and-vegetable tortoise, not only would they be told (politely) to fuck right off, it would be the basis of office jokes for at least a decade.

    That's a photo of what we actually made this afternoon. FML!
  12. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Evening all Quick question: what the hell has happened to Harvest festival? When I was at school, we chucked a tin of beans and some super noodles in the collection basket. For gumby jr's first harvest, we've been asked to make an animal sculpture (ffs!) from fruit or vegetables. A whole Sunday afternoon spent on this crap!

    Love you to bits, Yog!
