I just replied to a woman on YouTube:

Excuse my impertinence, but do you wobble when prodded?

I never used to say things like that. I used to say sensible things. I think the ghost of eccentricity is finally taking possession.

Did I ever post the story of Rockliffe beach and the Christian Scientist? I think I probably did, and repeating old posts is worse than being eccentric.

I was given a Christmas present yesterday. Diligent palpation of the wrapping indicates an oval bottle with a knobbly top, and it’s driving me nuts. This is a new one on my pretty extensive database of bottle recognition.

Can you believe that the word currently trending on Oxford Dictionaries Online is octopus? That’s truly bizarre.
