Time of my life

Posted by Dawn Jones on August 8, 2007

Having a great time

I’m having the time of life in Rome. I’m so exciting someone should make a film of me. I’m like the opening credits of a Melanie Griffiths film circa 85.

love & light,

Wham Fisted

Posted by Ian Jones on August 8, 2007

cestus

A heavy Cestus is a novel and exciting option for a warrior character, and
an easy enough modification to an unarmoured figure: Thin strips of crepe
paper wetted onto the arm are then impregnated with cryanacrylate for
permanence.

I’ve done this almost as many times as I’ve turned flails into
manrikigusari. But that’s much harder.

61: Lost in the Colosseum

Posted by Jonti Bloom on August 7, 2007

Dawn thinks she’s being followed. I said “Hello, what do you think I’ve been doing here all this time”.

Not funny apparently.

59: Money for Nothing

Posted by Jonti Bloom on August 5, 2007

This is genuine. Not one of these fake scenes from those lightweight documentaries which are everywhere at the moment.

Wet cardy

Posted by Ian Jones on August 4, 2007

Drying

A wet cardy is very refreshing in this Italian heat wave. If clammy.

57: Fonzi Duplo

Posted by Jonti Bloom on August 3, 2007

Italy really is Jonti Bloom’s spiritual home:

– The best cars
– The best food
– The best clothes
– The best women
– The best football

And it’s acceptable for you to live with your mum past the age of 30.

Every step you take

Posted by Dawn Jones on August 3, 2007

Watching you watching me

I think we’re being followed.

I have been stalked several times in the past. Once solely for complementing a man on his posture.

The warning signs are back – I can literally feel eyes burning into me. Its either unwanted attention or I’m being constantly branded by a very sly cow poke.

Love & light,

Dawn x

Wargamer’s food of choice

Posted by Ian Jones on August 3, 2007

Pizza is the wargamer’s food of choice. Toga Pizza, the takeaway nearest our shop, eventually named our preferred choice “The Orc’s Bucket”, – 15″ thick crust with extra cheese, extra onions, sweetcorn, ham, jalapeño, blutwurst, prawns, carrot and melted marshmallow.

Am hungry now.

56B: Magpie

Posted by Jonti Bloom on August 2, 2007

Always a sensitive film-maker and seeker of truth, I feel that I may be touching sensitive areas. And paying for quite a lot.

56A: Post Mortem

Posted by Jonti Bloom on August 2, 2007

She’s washing that man right out of her car…and Ian’s in accident and emergency.

Seascape

Posted by The Joneses on August 2, 2007

Dawn a la plage

Everytime I raise my hands to type I’m swept away on a wave of nausea.

Everytime I think I’ve found a rock to cling to it turns out to be a carrot.

Love & light

55: I’ve been Carston Whelk

Posted by Jonti Bloom on August 1, 2007

Appropriate karaoke songs for this moment:
– Should I stay or should I go?
– He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother
– Living on a prayer
– Stuck in the middle with you
– Anything by Chas and Dave

As the . . .

Posted by Dawn Jones on August 1, 2007

final fanfare’s closing notes hang heavy in the air, the performer rides the well deserved wave of adoring applause and with a grin bids a fond “thank you, good night & god bless”.

Love & light,

54: Wicker Roof

Posted by Jonti Bloom on July 31, 2007

Glad to be leaving Spain behind, though worried about Carston’s friend. Do you recall Theroux ever putting himself in this much jeopardy? Thought not…
