Tommy I would LOVE a conversation as straightforward as that. I have a neighbour who walks past my house on a regular basis. I'm often out the front tinkering on cars but I've learnt to keep an eye out for him and disappear if I think he's near. Sometimes due the incredibly high velocity of his pace he catches me unaware. Sometimes I've literally been under a car and he has struck up a conversation with my lower legs without missing a beat. I'm fairly sure he's very experienced with people ducking away and making excuses so a victim stuck under a car probably made his day. I am sure he is deep in thought when he starts talking and just assumes that I know what he's been thinking about. His name is Alan.

Alan: Hey Kami which planet do you think is closest to Earth?

Me: What?

Alan: Which planet do you think is closest to Earth? I mean I always thought it was Venus right but actually there's a lot more to it than you first think. So what do you think?

Me: I dunno Alan it's not something I know much about. I think it is Venus but I'm not 100%

Alan: Ah well you'd be right there. But you'd also be wrong. See the Solar System orbits around and sometimes Mars is the closest and sometimes even Mercury can..

Me: FXXXXXXXXXCKING CXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXNT FXXXXXXXXXXXCK YOU BLUDGER BAAAASTAAARD!!!!!!!!

Alan: Yeah like sometimes like every few thousand years Mercury can be closest to Earth. Not many people know that.

Me: Hey Alan can you pass me that rag there I'm bleeding here.

Alan: And like you know the newsagent up there at the shops? Well I'm almost certain I won Lotto the other night but when I gave her the ticket she said I didn't win but when I saw the numbers in the paper they were MY NUMBERS. I always have the same numbers. I think it's because her husband is a Freemason. You know about Freemasons don't you Kami?

Me: Yes Alan you told me all about them a couple of weeks ago.

Alan: Well the thing about Freemasons is you can't trust them. They're a secret society working against the good of the people. My research..

Kami: Hey it's been great chatting with you Alan but I've got to take the wife to the shops soon.

Alan: Great!! I've gotta go to the shops too. Can I get a lift with you? We could get a coffee.

Kami: I don't drink coffee. Only P00FS and Continentals drink coffee.

Alan: (looking around critically): Will I be safe in one of your cars Kami? Let's face it. They do look like awful old bombs.

Kami: Please someone...Make it stop...

Good evening gents!

KAMI, Alan sounds like a nightmare - on the same lines as the cat-loving neighbour I have next door.
Some years ago, when I was looking after my mother 24/7, he'd 'nab' me when I went out to feed the birds - my only escape of the day.

So I had to take to filling the feeders up in the dark, past midnight, with a torch, to make sure I escaped his boring bloody incessant witterings.

I would imagine it'd be a bit difficult changing a propshaft past midnight with a torch, but it might be worth considering for your mental well-being!

- and talking of computers:

I have a massive mission to complete soon.

I have been with Virgin (which were then 'NTL')for my internet since 2004.

I think it was £15.95 for the service - certainly no more than £16.50 - per month when I first had it installed.
I have never had any other package, just the bloody wire coming into my house for the internet.

I am currently paying £36.95 a month for the exact same thing - and received an e-mail from Virgin last month telling me the charge would be £39.95 from next month.

Enough was finally e-bloody-nough and I've switched to Talk Talk for their fibre optic broadband at (guaranteed for 18 months) £23.50 per month.

However, I had the Talk Talk line installed last Wednesday (free of charge, even though I haven't had a telephone connection for approx 8 years) - and I still haven't plugged the bloody thing is, so wary am I of losing my marbles completely at trying to work out one wifi from another!

It will have to be attempted though, as it really makes no sense at all to try to save money by changing one internet company for another - and then paying for both of them!

I am steeling myself for the big 'plug-in' tomorrow.

You may never hear from me again!

I could have opened a pie shop.

I made a pie the other day, and if I say so myself, it was probably the best pie I've ever made - and my neighbour confirmed this by saying 'this is probably the best pie I've ever had in my life!'

You just know sometimes, when you're braising your beef and adding a soupcon of different ingredients that it's going to come out just great. Especially when you're rubbing-in your pastry and it's spot-on.

Just about my very earliest memory in life is watching Mount Eden win the 1971 Miracle Mile. The horse was from Western Australia and an absolute freak. It had terrible manners though and lost a lot of races from breaking stride and missing starts. If it ever started even it usually won. He's still considered to be one of Australia's greatest horses.

1971 Miracle Mile at Harold Park - Glebe - Sydney. I'm 7 years old. Everyone is talking about Mount Eden. The Trots were HUGE back then. When he blew the start everyone wrote him off. How can a horse lose that much ground over a sprint and still win? Impossible. Not only did he catch them up he flogged them in record time.

For those of you not used to harness racing: when Mount Eden sprints for home 600m out at Harold Park that is most unusual - he is really treating his opposition with contempt.

A plain grey one gets in the backyard and makes his amazing call until I come out and feed him. He gets about as close as 5 feet. I throw a ball of mince and he is off.
