alliteration
95 magnify
Hi Folks,

After yesterdays unfortunate distraction, I now return to the prose I intended to blog yesterday....

I recently met up with an old and dear friend at the pub last week. Its one of my old pals from my brass band days. I don't see so much of him these days now that I'm not playing any more (although I'm still considering returning to my musical past - cue Marty's procrastination traits - ooer).Image Anyway, we had a really good chat over a few beers and put the world to right - something we frequently used to do. Thinking about Alan, it reminded me of his wit and humour that has rubbed off on me over the years. Being brass players, we subscribed to being heavy critics of rival bands and music in general. One of Alan's favorite phrases of (what is decribed as Alliteration) - is: -

" A Cornucopias Cacophony of Crap!"
Image
This phrase would frequently be used to describe some musical delectation witnessed by Alan and myself, of which Alan would have rather dubious opinions.

I can remember one evening some years ago, sitting in the pub (as very usual) having a competition to alternately think of three world alliteration phrases using every letter of the alphabet. They did not have to make sense. The challenge was to use as many large and obscure words as possible in order to come up with the funniest phrase. (nothing got near the one above). Thinking back to that little exercise, here is one I've just come up with: -

"An
apocalyptic anachronym of alliteration"


It's a fun game to play amongst friends.


BTW. For those of you that think my spelling is rather good, I have to confess that I'm a dreadful fraud, having used an online dictionary http://dictionary.reference.com

Other stuff.....


Went shopping a Asda today and finally purchased a cross cut shredder (procrastination temporarily aborted). I love shredders. They appeal to me in the same vein as laminators and bubble wrap! Is there no end to the temporary OCD I suffer from from time to time LOL Image

Night shift tonight, so plenty of time to catch up with everything you guys have written on your blogs. With love and blessings to all.
