Alice Cooper and The Jam

Saturday, January 12 2013

  This dream took place in my old home town, outside the parade of shops opposite my junior school.  Between the two is a strip of grass, ringed by a foot high metal post. The shop of interest is the Chinese takeaway. It used to be a chip shop in those days. I was fresh out of prison. My crime? Who knows. I was hungry, so headed for the chip shop where I knew I could get some decent food.  Once inside it soon became apparent that it was now a sushi bar. What to do? There was

Lords Cricket Ground

Sunday, June 3 2012

I was at Lords Cricket Ground, getting ready to take the first delivery of the afternoon for my team. I had placed one of the bails on the stumps and events seemed to be taking a lot longer than usual. There were a few cries of 'hurry up' and shouts of encouragement to get started again. Then I noticed I had my batting gloves under an arm. Better put them on and get started! As I was slipping on my gloves I then saw I still had a light coat on. So off came the gloves and then I struggled

Watching a game of cricket

Wednesday, August 16 2006

I was watching cricket game at a ground while working - and the boss and I were told off because we were being spied on on two previous occasions for not concentrating on our work. An orange folder was produced to back up this statement with details. During the game itself, the score was 300 for 5 and a batsman was clean bowled. I tried, but couldn't get the bail to balance back on top of the stumps. Later, I was told that this was because I had spilt a little chocolate onto the stump g

Run out at the cricket match

Thursday, March 10 2005

I was playing cricket and got myself run out after not backing up the batter's quick single after playing the ball to mid wicket. A feature of the run out was just how slow I was in setting off for the other crease.

The orange cricket ball explosion

Thursday, June 3 2004

Playing cricket with an orange at the clinic where I work. There was no wicket, but one had been chalked on the floor. I was rubbing the ball against my trousers to keep the shine on one side (as you do in cricket, in case anyone is wondering) , and then an argument broke out at the chalk stumps. I thenbowled the ball and it exploded all over the batsman in an juicy mess!

WG Grace

Monday, May 3 2004

WG Grace had to dribble a cricket ball with his bat around an athletics track, up a bank and to the end of a field to score a goal? When I said he would never have done it as the Australians chasing him would have caught him, somebody pointed out he was even quicker. The radio was taken from my office that I was sharing, so I sulked and spent my time tidying my desk very slowly. I find some razors and think about shaving while I should be working.

Cricket Scoreboard and the doctors

Sunday, December 14 2003

Scoreboard operator at the Oval Cricket Ground running up and down the scoreboard, defying gravity. Showing off. Wrong score on board so he climbs outside and stands on the top rung of a ladder to alter the number and makes me feel ill with this stunt. How can he climb like a mountaineer? Batsman scores 365 for a world record score. Went to the doctors but it was me who ended up giving the diagnosis to him in an adjoining waiting room!

I've been watching too much Alan Partridge!

Tuesday, July 8 2003

There is a cricket match going on, but some idiot is setting off bombs. A player or two have been killed and their bodies have been scattered at all corners of the ground. A live broadcast of the match has to avoid showing any scenes that might cause distress to viewers. An agressive player who approached an opponent told him in a menacing tone:'do you want to smell my cheese?'
