Subject: BS: Mornington Crescent - just the ticket
From: Mr Red
Date: 04 Sep 04 - 04:24 AM

If you wanted to go to the live show you are probably too late. I just logged on to a venue (for the second time to see where my seat is) and the site is locked-out - probably overload.

HOWEVER - I logged-on at 7=59am (ready for the 8=00 start) and got to the ticket page, which is actually a payment agency and able to cope with these things. I refreshed until 9 am and - BINGO the "book this event" link went live and --------- Yippeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

So I start from Tunbridge Wells (but not till Dec)

your move...................

Word is there will be a live show originating from Honolulu in the very near future. First move is Kuhio Beach to Diamond Head--you have to time the surf breaks carefully.

As long as it isn't like the one in Weymouth, Dorset. They built a subway system to get across the busy main road to the sea. Trouble is, it doesn't actually take you to the sea, just further along the same side of the busy main road!

Presumably, if you miss the surf break then the next stop is Easter Island?

Mornington Crescent is far too urban for me, I much prefer the new rural version "Macclesfield". Remembering, of course, that the M6 is now out of bounds due to last year's disturbances at the Watford Gap services and roadworks have led to a contraflow system being introduced on the A5 north of Tamworth.

I'm starting from KETTERING.

No need to take God's Wonderful. The many lovely branches of the LMS can transport you anywhere in the known universe as it is well known that this railway specialises in time travel. Legend has it that one train once got as far as Leicester. However, this has never been verified as no one else has ever bothered to try and go there.

I once called a girlfriend Pershore lips
Etrury (sic) sounds a bit potty to me.

I don't think we properly finished with the Mull of Kintyre and I certainly missed rolling in from the sea.

I got you all in a neck lock there - Crinan Canal

I finished with the Mull of Kintyre years ago at the request (sic) of her father and his shotgun. Look what you've done Mr Red, you've made me (sic)now, it must be all this water.

I assume that by using the Crinan Canal you are on the Vital Spark, and heading for Loch Neck.

Waiting for a bus in Telford.

For those not familiar with Tamworth - it is pronounced Winc't and definitely the ass end of Tam'th which is - sort of populated with - Brum rejects - the ones that were spared from Redditch.

Wait! Has Macclesfield been abandonded? Is the Pope a member of a religious organisation? Has the North Sea really been closed due to roadworks at Mablethorpe and resurfacing around Cromer.

Managed to get away from the gravitational pull of Dorking and, using the Windsor 'effect', have been propelled to Uttoxeter.

Two well dressed young men who, strangely, called themselves elders, called at my house once. My ex answered the door and asked them what they wanted. They replied we're Mormons. My ex replied "no thanks, I've already got one"!!!!

Ouch Micca. That felt like a clip round the ear. So for good measure try ARTLENOCK. I would advise seeking a native Northants speaker for this one. Sadly Dr Beeching closed the station but there are occasional buses.

Giok. Tynbrum Upper or Lower depends on whether you are going to Oban (via Connell Bridge) or Fort William, Mind you the Gunter Grass reference suggests Danzig (Gdansk) which would be a suitably bizarre change of direction to the game.
