Image



I think I need a new image.
At the Baftas I noticed that Dev Patel had gone all floppy haired and informal which apparently sent the women ( and many of the men) in the room wild with desire. 
Eddie Redmayne donned a white tux and looked very 1950s and even Steven Fry, who usually looks like a bag of coal in a suit , scrubbed up well enough to lead the charge against Trump's references to the overrated Meryl Streep.
The Prof has a new twitter profile photo. ( see above)
It shrieks professional & Individual 
If I had one there would be a gravy stain on the shirt and egg in my beard.
Unprofessional & Individual 

It's time to change!
And so......Before I take neighbour Trevor to the doctor's surgery this morning I 've made an effort...it's the turning of a new leaf!
I've washed my face and combed my hair! I've put on clean jeans and a jumper spring fresh from airing on the bathroom radiator. I've brushed my teeth and have put shoes on instead of my crocs with the holes in the sole
And feeling fairly dapper strode out to get myself a coffee from the kitchen

.....and promptly stood in a pile of George's bile sick lurking by the fridge

  1. Seems like you made a great effort, John! (As for the pile of sick - you can't win it all in one day!)

  2. Oh, you had me so excited for you! At least your face is still washed, your hair is still combed, and your teeth are still brushed.

  4. My beloved is very dapper, whereas I tend to look like a sack of shit tied up ugly, hey ho, he still loves me as I'm sure the Prof loves you.

  5. Thank goodness you weren't wearing your Crocs-with-a-hole-in-the-sole! Will you change back into more informal attire before venturing into the Ukranian Village again?

  6. Never mind - you tried, but you should know by now that animals will always bring you down to earth !

  8. Well unless it splashed at least you only have to change your shoes ;-)

    I need to make more of an effort too ... but the dogs, Ginger and the chickens don't seem to mind the holey jeans and soup splashed jumper :-)

  9. Oh I was so excited but at least the top part of you is fresh and clean. You sure made a great effort John and we all love the individual "you". We're going out to a Valentine's dinner with a group of friends tomorrow night. It will be a first in four months that I'm out of khaki shorts (darned several times and places) and tee-shirt. I will be wearing my bling again!

  15. All your efforts to be smarter seem to be instantly jinxed. Especially by your incontinent furry lodgers! But you're always smart enough on the important occasions, so why worry?

  16. If you smarten up your image, people might start to think you are gay.

  18. Well done that man, did you have your Pj's under those freshly laundered clothes. There is one consolation to your encounter of dog puke, if you had your holey crocks on you would have had wet feet!

  19. You can`t be held responsible for damage done to your new image by a poor sick little doggie. But, the next time you clean up, we want visual proof ie a photo.

  20. I think you should get dressed up smart everyday and just wear a forensic suit over your clothes until you need to go out on show! :)

  21. All is well except the shoes. Such a small percentage of one's dress. I think you should treat yourself to a spare pair at once. And, you must know they make crocs to look like anything, including wing tips.

    ReplyDelete
  22. What about those disposable overshoes you wear in ICU? Couldn't you always carry a spare pair around in your pocket?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Nothing like treading in a fresh pile of puke/shite etc to bring you down to earth. At least you had shoes on - try it in bare feet. Gross

  24. Give Cruze Hairdressing in Rhyl a try. They'll give you an image make-over. I suggest blonde highlights and the growth of mutton chop sideburns. You could raffle off your beard and tash on "Going Gently", raising much needed funds for St Kentigern Hospice.

  25. there are some things that just can't be changed.

  26. John, you remind me of me. I'm the kind of person who can get in a huff & decide to leave the scene instead of arguing & stomp off right into the door frame.
    I love your blog, and all of you who 'live' there.

  28. Murphy's Law - if something can go wrong it will. This is why I rarely wash the floors; as soon as I do I end up knocking over a gallon of sweet drink or one of the cats pukes from one end to the other! Now I "spot wash" them instead.

  29. Being out of character always involves a certain amount of Karma?

  30. My childhood pooch (Toby) used to lay a sneaky turd in the kitchen, then pull my mums slippers over it to hide the evidence. There are few things funnier than a very fat lady skidding across the kitchen on a raft of terrier turd!
