June 20, 2005
Right, this has been bugging me for ages (well, as long as the new Vanish Oxiclean advert has been on telly).
I have gotten bored of searching Google, because lots of people use "red rag to a bull" as a turn of phrase.
However, I'm pretty sure that bulls only see in black and white and that if you held up any colour sheet and waved it about that it would get aggravated. The red is just for effect.
In which case, the Oxiclean advert is all wrong, because it would still be agitated by a white sheet being waved at it and the red spilt on the trousers would make no odds.
They have so many James Bond seasons, and I've interviewed two bond girls on BBC Coventry and Warwickshire don'tcha know ( I really need to remember all these things when making a CV). However, my favourite Bond will always be this dude:
Incidentally, though that pic is gone, it's Roger Moore
So, I can't go on one outing this week because of the possiblity of vivas and I can't go on t'other because no room in car and I would be gatecrashing somewhat. Thing is, I like Alton Towers so much and am so itching to go, that I'm sorely tempted to be a loner and just go on me own…unless anyone wants to come of course?
I can't really go after the end of this week because it will either be full of school chiddlers when I'm available, or on a saturday spare from my job which will also be chock full and queuing for rides in summer does not a happy Shall make.
