Didn´t dare to peek in yesterday as I had run out of hankies

The concluding session in my cycle of desensitisation treatments for embrace-ophobia

Shrink (more or less at the end of his tether): But you have had 3 dozen treatments now, you must have noticed SOME improvement.
With shaky hands, pulls out some pictures. Now look at these...
Shows G a picture of a sweet cuddly labrador puppy

G (barely looking at it, with a forced smile): How sweet... reminds me of lavatory paper

Pic of Nicolage Cage follows - plus an encouraging smile from the Shrink: He DOES have the same eyes as your work colleague....

G: Oh, give me a break! My work colleague is a bl***y womaniser! I´d rather become a nun - it takes more than a pair of blue eyes to make a man

Trying to keep his cool, Shrink produces a pic of Paddington Bear
G: THAT IS FOR KIDS - FOR HEAVEN´S SAKE - COME, COME, YOU CAN DO SO MUCH BETTER THAN THAT (!)

Shrink jumps up, hands to head, a crazed look in his eyes:You need high-dose desensitisation therapy, you hard-headed....

On the brink of a nervous breakdown, Shrink pulls out his last picture, whispering: Honey, don´t you think THIS deserves an embrace?



G: Oh well, perhaps a little one

Do NOT encourage me

Gosford Park Great film, a little weird though, if I may say so... I only have it on video (taped it ages ago), this pic must be from Special Features or so . I remember wanting to see the film because of Richard E Grant - the name Stephen Fry did not ring any bells at the time How things change (!) X-D

Completing the completely unintentional weeklong theme of Waistcoat!Stephen . . .



That blasted Stephen is nothing but a kiss up.

From the "Firing" sketch, Boffle season three, episode three.

This week's theme is going to be predictable. Sadly predictable.

Oh Fryphile, do you want us to be in tears all week long?
*grabs for the first packet of handkerchiefs*

(or is the sadness brought on by the gingery tinge to Stephen´s hair
Apologies to all "redheads" (and I like redheads...), but Ginger Stephen - unthinkable (cf. Clover sketch, OMG !!)

I think a ginger Stephen is a fabulous thought. Quite fabulous. Or not even ginger but bright copper. Then he'd be exactly like one of my favorite children's literature characters of all time, Martin from "Kees, The Admiral of Tulips." (He was a super-tall rake-thin Jesuit novice, two years older than the kid protagonist, seemed to know everything about everything, and every other word out of his chatty mouth was a lie except for his more outrageous claims - those always somehow turned out to be true.)

OH fond childhood memories (I just loved those Sams books! it is all about a little cobold turning up out of the blue, always being up to some mischief! and MEFFI, that little devil, is my all-time-favourite redhead) - do you still think a ginger Stephen is a fabulous thought (please focus on the hair (!) Sams is not exactly an oil painting )

Neither is Stephen, as far as he's concerned, so what's the problem?

I've known some seriously hot redheads. (Although none of them had the stereotypical temper. One of the sweetest, most genial fellows I know is bright orange.)

Ergo: Never judge someone by the colour of their hair One of my schoolmates had bright orange hair too (a bit like Pippi Langstrumpf) and was the calmest of creatures I have ever met. And she made up her own mathematical formulae which enabled her to solve a maths problem in half the time - even our maths teacher was impressed (now that´s genius!)

Isn´t it strange that certain colours of hair are associated with specific characteristics, like red hair - temper; blond - stupid (blond und blöd) and all the jokes that come with it (what is it when a blond woman dyes her hair - arificial intelligence - aaargh! I´ve heard them all) - but I have not heard of any unfavourable qualities/characteristics being ascribed to DARK HAIRED INDIVIDUALS? how come, or did I miss anything

D'you hear that odd whirring sound? Why, it's the entire Third Reich spinning in their collective graves!

I think us brunettes have got enough shit from the melanin-challenged over the ages - we're just getting some of our own back.
