I need to paint a different picture of myself and in lock down I have not been able to wear a lab coat for ages. I haven’t been able to be a MouseDoctor, which is good news from the beasties, but as you all know I’m not a real doctor.
The orange COVID mask has cut off my circulation and it made my ear drop off:-). I have my artist outfit on as we are having to have a maker-over. I have given myself the option of a noose or a scalpel and a pair of scissors. I offered to “have the Snip” to save being hanged and banished. I used the COVID mask to cut off the circulation did the trick and I’m ready to send a present (See below if people want them) and my squeak has gone up a few octaves.
Sadly it has made me realise. I have now got to stick a fence stuck up my Jacksie too, as I will have to sit on the fence (Avoid making decisions) more and must remember to not “ ruffle any feathers” (Annoy someone).
When I agreed to post on the blog, I wanted to it to be entertaining for me to do it, I did not want to be the turgid “yes” person saying “everything is magic and we are all made out with stardust”. Throughout the blog there are things that probably only I and MD2 get and sometimes even MD2 has no idea what I am on about.
In contrast to instructions, I decided I wanted to say it how it is, and talk slang so you would get abit of an English lesson whilst learning MS. That is why I post links, as I know that Bricking-it (to be frightened) from the saying “defaecating/SH1ing bricks (meaning to be frightened) is not understood by non-British English speakers. It is not meant to be offensive but to bring abit of light heartedness to something that is not light hearted. However, sometimes I get it wrong and it is insensitive and we have to react.to the fall out.
As you can see we have a name change.
However, I know what it is like to change a name and indeed during lockdown I have actually done a deed poll and have officially changed my name to try avoid having clandestine meetings with border control officers around the World. Deep down I know it isn’t going to work and have been let down to some extent, I think he said ” I have been f-ing useless” by my MP as they have no sway over the Home Office.
As you can see we have started and the Bart’s blog and is gone
Since I was a young mouse I have had a far bit of fun and games with the Border Control and customs officers culminating in them looking up my Jacksie for drugs after a trip to Amsterdam to collect some monoclonal antibodies from the Univeristy of Hamsterjam. If you are a keen reader of Der Speigel and the Guardian you will know that I am, or should I say my name is, on the “Most wanted list” for the past decade. I have officially changed my name but I bet the system is so rubbish it does not make a difference….Can you guess what it is?
People who have read the “London Gazette” are excluded from the game, but there I was in print…..largely with people changing their name from George to Georgina after the real snip.
Anyway here’s a clue. If you are old enough…. you will get it….fiddle de de.
P.S. No it is not “On” so I would be called Mister-On….and yes there is a historical logic.
Anyway ProfG has asked me to send him details of the deed pole as we have to change names. He’s going to do the one that doesn’t cost money as we have none and to be clear this blog has no official linkm. I have advised against doing a deed poll Joe Lycett-style and having a dubious signature:-).
