  1. Thank God for your oh so beautifully warped mind of a rainy Sunday morning......

    Cheers Buddy!

    {walks off whistling cheerfully}

  2. It's great to catch up with the crew again - Roth's world is wonderfully rich and a joy to embrace :{D

  3. Once again, your exceptional imagination is amazing! This Abbey is wonderful...

  4. Hey Alistair! Warped mind? Hey, I don't make it up, I just write it down! But I'm delighted to have raised your Sunday.

    Hey Robbie! I know, they've been quiet of late. It always worries me when badgers are quiet, now I come to think. It's usually just then that the house subsides.

    Hey Kato! She's a trooper, it's true. I really need to find out more about her, and tell you a bit about her dad. Curious yet? Oh yeah.

    Thanks one and all! Indigo

  5. That is one clever woman. I'm concerned, however, that you left your friend iDifficult up a tree.

  6. The proof of degree of warped-ness {?} is that you don't even know that it's warped.

    And that's warped.

    But you did so thank you.

  7. Hey Blissed-Out! She never ceases to amaze me, it's true. Oh, and we did get 'Difficult back, but that's an entire story in itself.

    Hey Alistair! Oooh dear, that reminds me of my days studying statistics, where I was disturbed to discover that clustering of data points was an indicator of randomness. As someone wise once said, "There is order in the universe, but it is not at all what we had in mind."

    Thanks to you both! Indigo

  8. That was awesome. And much more succinct than the short I put up today.

    I wish I had neighbors and friends like you.

  9. Note to Self: Always take a break after reading Indigo, lest the next blog you read will be done in the same voice and pace.

  10. Hey Joshua!

    It was supposed to be really short (honestly!) but it never works out that way once I start enjoying myself; I have lack-of-brevity issues. Ladies, take note.

    As for my voice, I'm fascinated - who do I sound like?!

    Cheers matey! Indigo

  11. Honestly, I think I hear Matt Berry, though a bit more subdued than his character from THE IT CROWD. Unless you're from the North, and then it's definitely Christopher Eccleston. I'm pretty sure you're not Welsh, otherwise it would totally be Kai Owen's Rhys Williams from TORCHWOOD. At first I thought Sir Alec Guiness from MURDER BY DEATH, but that has a slower pace to it, so Matt Berry it is.

  12. Hey Joshua, these are awesome!

    Sir Alec Guinness? I've not gone by that name since, oh, since before you were born...

    Matt Berry is definitely from the right part of the country, tho my ears are pure Who-era Ecclestone. Of course, Berry's cultured diction pales by comparison to my own; I was trained at the BBC, and always wear a dinner jacket while I'm on the lavatory.

    But Matt Berry would make a good Roth when they make the movie, with the late Donnie Pleasance as 'Difficult, obviously. Michael Clark Duncan is a dead ringer for Bear, too.


  13. Hey Indigo!

    I've just set you and some others a wee challenge over at mine if you choose to accept it - not that it's impossible. Hopefully it will help introduce some new folk to your wee blog too.......

    Feel free to ignore it though if you don't have time/think it fits/canny be bothered etc etc.

  14. We lost the goddam squidrel again. Had to call in an airstrike and a bacon sandwich.

  15. Just to let you know that I've referred someone to this post to learn more about your badgers. Based on my post for today, they might want one, but I warned them away from American badgers as most that I've come into contact with are unreliable at best. Hopefully you can refer her to the more intelligent and reliable sort you seem to attract.

  16. Hey Alistair! Now, I know I replied to this comment, but there's nothing here. Hmmm, suspicious. But I will get around to it; thank you.

    Hey 'Difficult! They mixed up the bombs and sandwiches, then dropped the payload in the wrong place; Cheltenham has never looked so good.

    Hey Joshua, thank you. Your friend needs to check out Eurasian badgers, the brightest and best. Of course, the clan/colony/brock in my back garden are exceptional. May I also recommend this and this? Bless 'em.

    Thanks one and all! Indigo
