a brief hiatus of a week
Hia and tus yerself here darlin'
Beyond even Hoffman creepy, yet there's art, life and emotion still there.

Thanks for your comments and links.
Must consult Hawking re the brevity of weekness.
Or the brevity of gravity etc.

Takes me back to "My Word" and my mentors, Dennis Norden and Fwank Muir.
"B. Rafferty is the sole halfwit."

"My Word" was compulsory listening for all the boyntons in "My House", Mr. S, with the pun-showdown the best. Also the way that the applause apparently graded the pun automatically - always sounded like rain to me, heavy showers meaning a clear winner.
and some more quotes on brevity

The siren voices of Dilys Powell and Anne Scott-James silkenly wafting out of the bakelite AWA P76 could set a young lad's barely visible hormones a'racing.
"Talk polysyllabic to me Dilys, don't spare me. Have your wicked etymological way with me. Give me your word!"

I preferred the sound of Dennis to Dylis m'self.
(DN must have one of the best voices for ironic nuance (and/or common variety pun)?)

"ironic nuance", a sadly neglected, powerful art.
When was the last time someone on "Big Brother" or "The Footy Show" ... sorry, I was being Pollyanna-ery and nostalgically foolish.

But we endorse Pollyanna Nostalgia for neglected art 100% on this site.
There's no fool like an old school pollyanna but at least she's polysyllabic.

O God Sedge. For so long I thought I was flawed.
Now someone else has admitted to the sheer lascivious glory of those wondrous english feminine polysyllables.
Sometimes they even came from someone called Polly, when I would be quite undone.
