Scarf Fever
Starbuck [18:07] Comments: 8 []

Now that cold weather is sweeping the UK, I've taken to wearing a scarf at work. It's causing me grief.

If its not concerned people asking me whether I'm "feeling OK", its people thinking its some sort of dubious fashion statement.

[adopts theatrical articulation] Don't these people realise that its NICE to wear a piece of cloth around one's neck when its chilly...

Scarves are cool. Not too woolly though...

Uhm.. Are you a lifeguard?

Heh, I see what you mean. I think. But no. And I don't wear Lifeguard either. But am I a stand-up comic turned TV presenter with whom the British tabloids have an unhealthy fixation? Perhaps...

Now if someone would just pull that one tight around Russell Brand's neck...very, very tight!

I used to have a silvery silky one that I purchased in a Jumble Sale and used to tug it (the scarf I mean) like I was Nobody's Ghost!

THIS Nobody's Ghost? Starring No Place Like Home's William Gaunt? Man, you must have a long memory...

I don't even know what these words I'm writing are all about, and that's saying something!

Incidentally, the title at the top was "Scarf Fever" because I thought it sounded a bit like some tropical disease. Having now internetted this up, the word I was thinking of was Swarfega, the heavy-duty hand cleaner. Oops.
