    I don’t care for TWL that much, but I have a certain fondness for women with British (and Aussie) accents.  It’s the Anglophile in me you know.

    Ha!  Thanks, Andy.  You can add former Mod-wannabee to my list of crimes too.    Still got me scoot, still got me parka, still think The Who is the finest band ever.

    Hahahaha!

    I actually have two parkas.  One that I totally trashed from wearing it so much and riding me scoot in the rain, and one that I got about 8 years ago that was totally NEW!  It was a genuine US Army Fishtail Parka that must have been in storage for years.  No bullet holes even (my first one had a sewed up bullet hole).

    I don’t wear it though.

    Then there’s the Union Jack jacket I had made. It was, of course, based on Pete Townsend’s Union Jack Jacket.  This was when I was still “working” on being a rock-n-roll star.

    Ooooh, and I could hear the Aussie-lilt in your voice when you said that, Ms. Raena.

    Only if you send us the complete collections of I’m Sorry I’ll Read That Again and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue. I’ve become addicted to those shows, particularly when they do “Late Arrivals at the XXX Ball”.

    Here are a couple examples from “Late Arrivals at the Australian Ball” (hey to Raena), which I choose only because I listened to that ISIHAC episode last night:

    Mr. and Mrs. Abong, and their son, Bill Abong.
    Mr. and Mrs. Zingmatilda, and their son, Walt Zingmatilda.

    (Okay a few more; this is addicting.)

    Mr. and Mrs. Erreef, and their wonderful son, Great Barry Erreef.
    Mr. and Mrs. Kangaroodownsport, and their son, Jaime Kangaroodownsport

    So Andy, just send those tapes and you have a deal.
