‘Cos the play’s the thing… innit?

The swords arrived in pristine order. So well packed in fact, it felt criminal to destroy the artistry…

Cos Playing is my thing

WTF! Clicky, that’s a personal, private photo and you’ve… *squint* …You’ve fucking numbered it! You cheeky bastard! Oh my fucking word…

I don’t care, that photo is a joke; I look awful…

Click…

Thoughtful man and I were having cross words, this moaning... I told Leg Iron about it...

roobee and leg iron sword chat

Moanings when we have to do something or go anywhere are the wurst; we have very different ideas about time Thoughtful Man and I...

We'd had a couple of skirmishes... steely words on steely words but I'd managed to wear him down with my cheeriness until...

Roobee brings glad tidings

So I went upstairs to get ready to go out and it was as I was brushing my teeth that I noticed:
1. My hair looked kinda wild and curly in the bathroom mirror...

2. I had a red face and baggy eyes...

3. I was wearing a stripe up my arm...

4. I was wearing yellow... sorta...

And then I remembered No.5...

Roobee loves The Princess Bride

So I plucked a sword from the boys' bedroom wall and went downstairs to pose for him...à la The Bride...

I must have got him a good one across the gut because he was holding his sides...

… you are the absolute pits! No, Clicky, it’s just not on posting my photo like that… what the fuck are you laughing at now?

  1. The photo is either:

    1. Clicky’s pre-emptive evidence of suspect #1, should he suffer an early demise via an edged object.

    Or

    2. A casting still for the lead role, for a remake of Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai.

      1. I doubt any ‘remake’ can match the Yul Brynner-led Magnificent Seven, especially its Elmer Bernstein theme. One of my favourite movie+theme combinations.

        Heck, even the Japanese original is a bloody good movie. Akira Kurosawa’s work influenced many western directors.
