D: In which A combines news and music.
A: I think all news should be delivered musically.
D: So, should dirges accompany bad news and magical themes accompany happy news?
A: Other way around, really – you know just to see if people are paying attention.
D: You make no sense.
A: It’s Saturday sillies, D. I’m not supposed to. Plus, I’m on my third cup of high-test coffee. There will be no sense-making today.
D: Good to know. You don’t actually have that theme song on your phone, do you?
A: No. And that’s probably a good thing. That was The Boy’s contribution to today’s show.
D: Although, it does get me thinking. . .
A: Don’t think, D. Let’s dance instead.
D: You know who loves Bowie, A?
A: Helena. Helena loves Bowie.
D: Too right, and you know what’s going on with Helena today?
D: Right again – Do you know why?
A: Okay, I said I was a little over-caffeinated, not in need of having lines fed to me! Helena’s successful Kickstarter is over in just three hours (go – preorder now if you haven’t! There are some excellent incentives) today, and to celebrate, she and Jim Squires will be answering questions all afternoon on Ask FM.
D: And how do you plan on celebrating?
A: Well, first by joining her, and second, by putting the lime in the coconut.
D: Are those gorillas?
D: Gorillas singing and playing instruments, singing about putting the lime in the coconut?
A: Again, yes.
D: This isn’t silly Saturday. This is surreal Saturday.
A: What, you never let your hair down?
D: Very droll, A.
A: So you’re telling me you’ve never gone full monty?
D: A! What a question to ask – you’re going to make a grown warrior blush.
A: Not bloody likely. Answer the question, Druid.
D: Does going bare in the basin count?
A: In this case, yes. Totally. Speaking of natives. . .
D: This is more of your belated St. Patrick’s Day tribute, isn’t it?
A: What? I love me some Christy, D.
D: Wasn’t there supposed to be news in here?
A: Ah, yes, so there was – thank you, D. In Middle-Earth News, Gandalf needs help. He has a lot on his mind and if he doesn’t find what he’s looking for, I fear–
D: Seriously, A?
A: What? It’s hysterical (And many thanks to Perry for posting that and making my Friday – I’m a lurker on her site, and it just made me smile).
D: . . .
A: Almost as hysterical as this Oakentoon.
D: Are you quite finished?
D: Finally, I was—
A: Oh, wait! There’s middle-earth madness going on now.
D: . . .
A: Because, you know, it’s basketball season – I think – and people are betting on stuff, but I don’t know anything about basketball, so voting on Middle-Earth matchups seems so much more entertaining.
D: You know, A . . . I think. . .
D: Hang on, I’m getting there. I think that you should put this in your pipe and smoke it.
A: That is not the Eddie Izzard clip I listened to in the car.
D: No. No it is not.
A: This one is better.
D: Yes. Yes, it is.
A: And with that, I think our Saturday Sillies are over.
A: Well, in the blogosphere. . . for now.
D: And with that threat, we bid you all a fond adieu.
A: Thank you for reading, everyone and have a great weekend!
