Clive on the Beeb's coverage just tried to say the Queen popping her clogs had made announcements about the cost of living crisis insignificant. Quickly corrected by his colleague to overshadow-ing rather than being more important.
I don't know how they can keep this sombre tone of voice going on the news. I've got the BBC News feed on in the background while I'm cooking, and I keep thinking it's switched to Just A Minute on Radio 4. The way - they ennunciate - everything - clearly - in monotone - to show - how sad - we all are. It's ludicrous.

Mr Wonderstuff: Chopper gang reporting in together ZX-Spectrum 48k. Always wanted a Grifter though.

EMarkM: I had friends with Grifters and Commandos. I had a Rancho (I think: I can't find it online this morning!), though, which I suspect was a cheaper version. I never had a Chopper, but did have the Budgie

zagibu: But coming back to the PE teacher topic...my PE teacher kept a pair of extra gay short shorts from the 70ies in his bag for people who "forgot" their sports bag at home. I had to wear them many times.

zagibu: Well I can't deny that a small, somewhat female part in me enjoyed flaunting my thin, pale, hairless teenage legs in their full glorious length in front of the whole crew. Thankfully it was before the camera phone era.
