the stolen shrub is sweetest

So, yes, this week's strip. The stolen shrub is sweetest. Every word of it is absolutely true, of course. Just look at the keep left sign, if unconvinced. The monsters under the bed may have had a bit of an Ocean Odyssey makeover.

Sunny lunchhour brings accessories joy: one lady has simple earrings of a blue glass bead wrapped with shiny copper wire; another has a rucksack printed with a picture of rucksacks pretending to be mountains.

The tragedy of "sort by most interesting" strikes: I was only looking for Scorpions on Flickr.

This tiny mouse is included for damiancugley: It clicks with the thumb! To here the finger mouse which becomes small.

Some of you may be interested in the Dave McKean retrospective on at Banbury museum. It's open office hours on Saturday and 10.30-4.30 on Sunday and admittance is free -- until June 18. The museum's an easy walk from the station (or you could always go by boat...)

Also, spambot dotcommahyphen clearly knows me:

everybody wins!

vinegar-faced safe-cracker quasi estimation

(or at any rate is reading my blog)

in my hoodie and docs. Yay verily, I move like a shadow. A clumsy, noisy shadow.

ha ha , fab!

Heh heh, gardening ninja indeed. Inspired!

Oh, can't you carry on doing that just sometimes? We could form the Ninja Assassin Gardener's club.

well, if you fancy it
Guerilla gardening is already a phenomenon. Been on the culture show and everything.

Re: well, if you fancy it
No reason not to start up a splinter group. The New Garden Remodelling Army, or something.

Might do a post. Something to do over the summer hols, innit?

And I love your spambot. Several of the lines could describe me at the moment. (Though, while I am sometimes blue-headed, I'm not Bez)

vinegar-faced safe-cracker?
It was "jaw-cracking blue-headed" that clinched it for me.

Is that the new inks? They look lovely!
7th Jun, 2006 15:42 (UTC)
No, that's computer colouring. There'll be some stuff with the new inks soon, though.

I've been hearing from the selfsame spambot. My favourite element was "narrow-laced Neo-egyptian north-northeast new-looking palette knife". How did it know I had one of those?

Ninja Gardener was already taken.

I will go, then, for Batshit Englander.

Reminder to self: install bat boxes

The cable is not entwined! Conveyance compact!
9th Jun, 2006 10:49 (UTC)
I shall interpret that as a compliment. :) Thanks

Awwww. You soppy thing, you.

That Dave McKean thing is interesting. Can't make it this weekend, wonder if a can persuade someone to take a day trip next weekend?

Saturday's out
But I could make the Sunday -- last day! What do you think?
