Naval Gazing

Yes, I picked a good day to be watching the ships go by from my study here on Ramsgate's East Cliff, what with 1800 jobs going at the Beeb, and my old ITV chums Ant and Dec getting it in the neck for fleecing the viewing public with their mechanical pig.

Unfortunately it does mean, however, that my own proposal for a prime time comeback, Dickie's Big Dosh Dial-Up, will have to be put on hold for a bit. Shame, really. Only today Mr Ceaucescu (no relation) emailed me to say he was putting the finishing touches on the studio at his uncle's cowshed just outside Plovdiv.

Who said Mr Ceaucescu (no relation)'s uncle lived in Romania?

Who said Mr Ceaucescu was no relation? He must be otherwise you wouldn't be able to spell it.

Eastcliff Richard said...

No, he's no relation to Mr Ceaucescu (RIP, former dictator of Romania). But, of course, he is related to his Uncle Bulgaria. Who's in Plovdiv. Which is in Bulgaria, not Romania.

Oh gawd, I'm off to have a little lie down.

Sorry ECR didn't mean to land you in it - but it is a Romanian surname!

No no, that's fine. Mr Ceaucescu (no relation) is Romanian. But his uncle lives near Plovdiv, which is in Bulgaria.

Anyone got a Neurofen?
