yes, you are in the right place, really....

...don't touch that mouse.

I once lay in bed and watched an episode of "dude, pimp my ride", (tipsy and too lazy to turn over). Have you seen it? Some poor girl was relying on her clapped out vehicle to ferry her clapped out Granny to and from her clinic appointments. The car was an embarrassment, body panels were held on with chewing gum and string, it was clunky, rusty and generally a mess - people who saw it would point and laugh, and think "poor girl".

And then some kind hearted soul took pity on her and took her decrepit rust bucket and transformed it into a thing of beauty (at least in the eyes of the girl).

When she saw her new transport for the first time she laughed, she screamed, she peed herself a little and generally had hysterics.....and I thought "what a pratt".

Well, you see that girl - that's me that is!!

I went to sleep last night with my rust bucket safely parked in it's normal state of decrepitude, and woke up this morning to This!! The blog elf visited me while I was asleep.

Thank you Ginger, I have to go change my trousers, I've had a little accident....

Deadly Female said...

Sexy sexy sexy Mr Fish!!! Kind of threw me for a couple of minutes there but I gathered my thoughts and read a little and calmed down. It's Friday night and I apologise if you end up on my random email list tonight. Had some wine and all is fine *giggles* xx

Oh and I realise I've had too much wine becuase your word verification thingy looks like it could be a real word...

Deranged Doctor said...

Colin, Colin, very... swashbuckling, I say. But the important thing is to notice how all the females seem to love the new style! Definitely a keeper.

Jenn said...

Oui...je suis bien. C'est le weekend..eh? C'est tout bien.



(We might be about to surpass my memory of the French language...I can understand much more than I can speak/write.)

Aims said...

I love it. It looks great. Suits you. I was too drunk to send emails last night!! Had a blast tho! Maybe I'll send some emails later!

Jenn said...

Sadly - the only espaƱol I've practiced is in Tiajuana = Yo no quiero mas....over and over again. That was after way too many tequila poppers.

Latin? ;-)

Amerloc said...

So impressive that I had to take a peak at the code. Very, very nicely done. Congratulations to both you and Ginger on your collaboration.

Sandra said...

Is this Jack the Ripper prowling the streets of Whitechaple? Or do I have a twisted outlook on things? I love it, very swank.

Aims said...

Sandra - I'm thinking Jack the Ripper too!

Aims said...

Have you sobered up yet Colin??!!!
