85: Taste test

Posted by michaeljk on August 31, 2007

A celebrity sibling, well at least in Germany. I still can’t work out if that’s a wink or a tick.

Private Pelvus

Posted by Dawn Jones on August 31, 2007

Wim Pelvus

Just got back from Wim’s. He didn’t want the camera there as he explained that (being a famous face) he’s fiercely protective of his privacy.

He doesn’t need everyone knowing he’s got 14 bathrooms in his house, none of which have a toilet.

It’s no-one’s business that he has a separate wing for Suggs memorabilia. And as for who he lives with – let’s just say I know what Yazz is up to nowadays.

Love & Light

Beautiful Thingstätte

Posted by Ian Jones on August 31, 2007


Walking in the park in Heidelberg I saw some local lads doing some live action role-playing in a big amphitheatre.

They spoke a bit of English and explained it was a homebrewed system based on Hero Wars, Norse Mythology and something that sounded like Gnosticism.

They were waiting for a fat lad who was going to be a frost giant and had even sprinkled salt on the ground, to emulate Winter.

I’d have joined in, but there was no time to haft a weapon as I was meant to be slogan-hunting.

84b: Is that him?

I’m never sure if an isolated car park is the ideal place to meet a stranger.

I Sauce Sense

Posted by Dawn Jones on August 30, 2007

I love sauce. Ask anyone. Last time I did a big shop, I bought pickle. I knew then that condiments would play a key role in my life. I love being proved right.

Love & Light,

Dawn x

White Dwarf Star

Posted by Ian Jones on August 30, 2007


I’m not sure I could handle being famous, with my face up everywhere and everybody pouring sauce out of it.

At best, I might be able to handle renown, like if I got a role-playing supplement published. Fingers crossed.

84a: Sourcing Wim

Posted by michaeljk on August 30, 2007

If Ian hadn’t have bought those trousers where would we be?

A kind twist of fate – yes, but I’m not sitting next to him in the car if those trousers retain their charge.

83: Recharged

Posted by michaeljk on August 29, 2007

Ian’s been behaving very strangely since the prison visit. This could make for some interesting material.

Carpe Diem

Posted by Dawn Jones on August 29, 2007

The experience with Bibi has taught me a great deal.

From this day on I will genuinely value and celebrate my freedom.

I will begin by having a facial, a large gateau and watching Braveheart dubbed in German.

Love and light,

Dawn x

Clothes make the man.

Although ironically most man’s clothes are made by women and children in hot countries nowadays.

Still I find catalogue shopping easy and convenient.

Documentary tip #4

– A Documentary film maker is sometimes denied entry.
– Improvise – always carry radio mics and get a great visual.

I’ve done many things in my life but I’ve never judged a book by its cover. I hope you won’t either – you’ll miss out on some top reads.

Love & Light,

Dawn x

NB – When I wrote this originally, I meant book as a metaphor for person/stranger. Looking back this is also good advice when taken literally.

Flop Drop

Posted by Ian Jones on August 28, 2007



Those flip flops have been through a lot. I’ve been wearing them since Paris. I nearly lost one rummaging for cardboard in Bilbao. Carston spilt paella on one. They got all oily on the beach in Termoli. They have run, jumped, clambered and clung to places I never thought I’d even walk in.

I don’t know whether to struggle on with the left one, or let that go as well. It reminds me of my Dad Who Brought Me Up when my Mum died. It looks forlorn and brave and broken all at once.

It seems wrong for them to be apart.

81: Call it fate

Posted by michaeljk on August 26, 2007

My last memory of riding on a ski lift didn’t have a happy ending.
1989 – School trip to the Isle of Wight to see the Needles, I saw it as a perfect opportunity to ask a girl out. When she declined we spent the remaining 15 mins in silence.
