Away, of course

Your humble Devil is, alas, away from his keyboard, merely snatching a few minutes in an internet... well... pub, actually, in the piccareque village of Meribel.

Thanks to the generosity of his pater, your humble Devil is happily skiing down slopes and generally exercising muscles that he never knew he had. Normal service should be resumed sometime around next Monday...

Have fun, you chaps; give The Gobblin' King a kicking from me: I'm sure that he deserves it. "Dual premiership" indeed...

you are such a twat. everything you've had has been courtesy of pater. so why don't you grow up and be your own man (old etonian style of course). form your own opinions and stop thinking shock value is good value.

That would be one of those more constructive comments then.

Unless, Angel's Restaurant, you're his sister, "everything you've had has been courtesy of pater" is a classic case of not knowing what the fuck you're talking about. And put away the class warrior shit, it's not 1970.

I don't give a monkey's toss if he's skiing on his dime or his old man's. I'm just relieved he's finally let us know where he is. We were worried...

My fist of flounce said...

Indeed we were - all this stuff about the Legiaslation and Regulatory Reform Act and no Devil to put the barbs in the government's proverbials.

Angel's Reestaurant, given the angst in your reaction I'm sure my views have more in common with yours than those of DK. However, just because he can't see or contact you doesn't give you an excuse to be rude. If DK makes you feel that uncomfortable, go somewhere else.

Apologies for offence - obviously i read him because I'm interested but sometimes (often) he IS a twat as I've said to his face on occasion. Still it was drink fuelled and I do know better......

Bugger, don't have admin rights, can't delete anything, even if it is against his comments policy.


Hmm. As he's away, anyone care to suggest something I should post? Maybe something about how great the EU and the Scottish Parliament is?

Angel's Restaurant

What a truly graceless individual you are.

Scenes you never saw in Ancient Greece:

Telecleides: "Socrates, I consider that your theories encapsulate all of the modern dangers inherent in contemporary thought and literature."

Socrates: "I bet your dad bought you that chiton."

MatGB said...

Talecleides: "Why yes, yes he did. Here, have some hemlock."

Katy Newton said...

Socrates: "Argh.. gurgle."

*thud*

Devil's Kitchen said...

Amused as to Angel's Restaurant's identity now! Yes, pater darling has helped me a lot of the way, but only because I have also tried to help myself. He has cut my brother off precisely because he makes no effort to do so. It's a contract, if you like.

As to being a twat, well, aren't we all from time to time...?

Devil's Kitchen said...

BTW, MatGB and Katy; you should be a double-act; I laughed like a maniac at that Grecian exchange...!

DK

MatGB said...

I'd offer, but she lives in London and is limiting herself to co-religionists...

Besides, hemlock references are something I need to throw around at least once a month, reputation to maintain...

Katy Newton said...

Actually, there's been a bit of a policy change on that front, Mat. (The coreligionists thing, not the living in London thing. I am still largin' it in the Big Smoke, as 50 "Fiddy" Cent would say.)

Glad you're unwinding, DK. Don't let anyone suggest to you that hiking down the mountain is a pleasant alternative to the ski lift. It is always a lie and I have the itemised calls to Swiss Air Rescue on my mobile to prove it.
