New Face

I am often asked; sometimes asked; somebody asked me once, why I don't post more often. My response is, obviously "Bugger off and write your own blog you impudent wastrel." But my reason is nine-tenths indolence and one-tenth lack of time. In order to combat this I have invited, for occasional commentary on matters spiritual, a new addition to the team.

In a last ditch attempt to gazump Iain and find a new home on the Tory benches, I have managed to procure for the august pages of the Reptile a representative of the opposite sex. Too often has the clarion call of forthright good sense gone forth from this site without the necessary leavening of taste and sensibility that my new colleague will provide. So, in the spirit of inclusivity and modernity, I give you Token Bird.

It's not my fault, she chose it.

"somebody asked me once", indeed.

I see we are still on Flanders and Swann.

No doubt we will be hearing in due course that "it has long been [your] earnest wish" to do something or other....

Anyway, welcome to the "Token Bird". Two things we need to know:
1) Is she properly educated? Is she "one of us"?
2) What does she look like? You can't have a Token Bird if we aren't going to get a fetching bit of eye-candy.


Toodle Pip!

'Is she one of us' indeed. I think that's even more offensive than demanding some eye candy.

Thanks PG and Bint.

In case anyone was wondering, the deleted comment was my failed attempt at trying to upload a token bird picture into this comment box. Can anyone enlighten me as to how you do this?

Ah, all that 'proper' education gone to waste..

Bird, you need to upload your picture on your own blog's profile and then it will automatically appear when you comment.

Yippee - I have not been defeated by technology (thanks Bint)

PG - fyi, I am quite leggy and prone to red-eye in photographs.
