Time for me to be off home, make way for the main man. I'll bugle a last post.

Thanks to Bryan for asking me to blogsit and to all of you commenters for contributing. It's been a lot of fun. We have chased away a horde of trannies with the help of the Wurzels and the Battleship Potemkin. We have tumbled off teeter-totters into the Quantum Flux. We have celebrated weighty Americans, lost to Kasparov, beaten University Challenge, thrown paint at an old man and cured Great Wakering. We have taken liquid lunches, won The X-Factor and (not) voted for Obama. We have been consoled by Gwyneth. We have learned nothing.

Ta ta.


  1. Well done, Brit. I thoroughly enjoyed your posts. Busyness at work and exhaustion at home being the ony reasons I didn't leave any comments.

  2. Every day in every way, award yourself a big bonus for a job well done, who's your odd looking replacement?

  3. Thanks, Brit. You are indeed a Brit.

  4. So long, farewell, auf widersehen etc.etc. A most excellent replacement, Brit.

  5. You were an excellent Replacement Bryan, Brit, even if you don't look like Winston Churchill.

    i can't help but think of the penultimate scene of Top Gun, Iceman & Maverick reunited at last:

    Iceman: You! You are still dangerous. You can be my wingman any time.

    Mav: Bullshit. You can be mine.

    You may ask why i mention this but i have no answer. It is, like a zen koan, beyond explanation.

  6. Great stint, Brit - what larks...

  7. Thanks all, and, thanks Elberry.

    Feast your eyes one last time on the paragraph breaks in the posts below, by the way. They're the last you'll see for a while.

  8. Good job, Brit -- you've really got the national wit. My favorite thing about all of you guys and why I'm always here.
