Either those captions are deliberately transposed for comic effect, or you owe us a "sing-a-long."

Funnily enough Andrew has been known to wear a kilt.

The bizarre thing is, ever since I spotted this resemblance, I've not been able to shift it from my head; so that whenever I read any of Andrew's columns, I can't help but imagine them being read aloud in Archie's voice. Sort of like the way that, once someone's pointed out to you that Natalie Portman's face looks as though it has been applied to a huge block-shaped head, you can never look at Padme the same way again. (This must be one of rather few similarities between Andrew Rilstone and Natalie Portman.)

You know, the more I look at that picture of you, the more I think you look like a possible Doctor. (Assuming you're in the picture above... I could be wrong, of course). Do you own a long scarf, by any chance? Or an umbrella with a question-mark handle?

Andrew Rilstone said...

Fantastic!

I also thought Ronin wasn't as good as Leon.

Deus Ex Machina indeed, 8mm was a dead dodgy film.

I brought the 'Return of the King' in Sainsburys though for under a tenner, its quite good.

Actually with hindsight I should have read the original blog instead of posting things like some stupid inebriate on a saturday, wot would warnie have said?

That was Mary Poppins, Helen, I have just read your comment.

And now for something completely sensible. Michael Nymans 'Facing Goya' the opera is a lot like 'That Hideous Strength' set to music.
It goes down a treat wif the merrydown.

I shall simply pretend it was not me tommorrow and blame the cat.

Okay so I haven't got a cat but the point is if i had one its prolly like Aslan and will wipe the slate clean, so there.

Dear Ms Rilstone, if you were Aslan's friend you would delete all these messages, else I'll tell Douglas Greesham 2000.

From Caitlin Moran, "5 children's TV characters I'd shag" ("Alpha Mummy," Times Online, 13 November 2007), http://timesonline.typepad.com/alphamummy/2007/11/childrens-tv-ch.html:

'... (1) Archie from Balamory. I love a man who looks like he regularly enters a room full of tipsy revellers, saying “I’ve heated up some samosas! And there’s a dip, too!” Ratty pink jumper, pink castle, obsession with making robots out of yoghurt pots - Archie would soon forget it all if he were getting regular all-night lovin’ from me. What’s the story in Balamory? It’s that Archie’s buying me expensive underwear, throwing me onto his four-poster bed and saying “Oh blimey!"...'

Do't, England, do't.
