Never Mind the Bollocks

Right! EMV’s in the UK. Jet-lagged at 5am. London’s getting ready for the games. Let’s see how many ideas for Drops this city has to offer, and whether they’re any good.

Best line heard so far, yesterday in a restaurant: ‘Can I clear your plate or are you still finished.’ Random observation: Youngish guys here seem to like wearing colorful, super bright tiny shorts. We’re talking neon shades (I saw green, orange and red) and a foot off the knee, with perhaps collared shirt tucked in and a rockabilly. Wow.

Moving along, I thought I’d take the chance to set up the week a bit. I’m going thematic. This week’s Drops are all going to be Quirky and Humorous. Those are the catch words for the next set of five, starting later today, with a Drop I’m just finishing off called Banter. That would be #36. Look out for it in a few hours.

It’s a sunny morning in London. Wishing you a wicked good day, wherever in the world you are.

    Nice.
    Looking forward to the quirks and funnies

  2. Enjoy a little Anarchy in the UK, EMV! You should try and come to Scotland for the contrast. We don’t have men in neon shorts, we have real men in kilts!

      I don’t know that that’s necessarily a plus – the shorts aren’t going to fly up and give you a shock in a stiff breeze… :p

      I did see a waiter in a cafe in Edinburgh wearing a neon orange kilt once, though. That was quite something for the eyes. Definitely had the legs for it.
