Lawn Order

Had a good night out last night - ias and I went to see The Proclaimers at the Guildhall (while lovely auntie gnommi stayed in to make sure that the garklet wasn't going to trash the house).

On the drive back, we were just past the Shooting Star on Bevois Valley when a rather-the-worse-for-wear bloke started to amble into the road in front of us. I sounded the horn and braked. He, on the other hand, stood in the middle of the road with his arms spread to block our passage. Fine. I braked to a halt and beeped him again. He dropped his trousers, mooned us, then started flapping his knob at us.

At which point the two cycle-mounted police on the other side of the street (that I'd failed to notice) rode across and manhandled him out of the road without even dismounting. Priceless. It's good to see that our council tax is well-spent.

Oh for a Flip Video Camara!

It did briefly cross my mind that he might be a second-degree acquaintance.

He must've been rather surprised by that!

It wasn't something that we were expecting either. After getting over the giggles, I felt it only right to give them a round of applause.

Maybe they can reproduce them for this year's family christmas card.

The flapping was, uh, pretty vigorous, but it's not something that should be reproduced in a family publication.

On a random note... you know nmg and squirmelia but no one else I know... how does that work? :)

Umm. I think that Jodi and I are the odd ones; we've both moved about quite a bit (and hang around in the right nerdy circles), which is why we both know you.

Great. All we need now is some police presence on University road to truncheon the freshers over the head when they can't figure out that "little red man" means "don't step into the bloody road".

Also, the people who think that turning on their blinkenlichten allows them to just swerve into the cycle lane and stop.
