Low ceilings, high expectations and some thoughts on people who use filler to cover up screws…

Still slow progess on the bus front. But we’ve begun to make a bit of progess on the air vents.
What we’ve learned recently:
1. This is not a bus but a patchwork quilt of wood, tin, nails, rivets, screws, glue and despair…
2. Filler must have been cheap when it was being constructed
3. That heater vent likes where it is… and it is refusing to go anywhere.
4. The air vent’s connected to the roof… and the back wall…
5. That back wall is made of wood.
6. Crowbars are fun
7. Rubber flooring is not fun

Our enthusiasm is waning a little but we’ll get there. I refuse to be defeated by a 12m hunk of steel, fiber glass and ply.
I think Brent feels the same way… and the kids? Well they just want to hang out on the bus no matter what state it’s  in.
We’re done for the night but tomorrow I’ll be back there blindly poking at filler in the hopes of discovering a screw or a rivet somewhere in there.

Thinking about it only makes it worse…

Need the entirety of modern life related back to a Mitchell and Webb sketch? No me neither, but if you did David Mitchell has you covered.
Don’t get me wrong, I am an unashamed sychophant when it comes to his writing…and it takes alot of self referential segues before I start to cringe. But the glass has shattered, and I have reached that point where every reference is so glaringly dissociated from the rest of the text that it may as well have neon lights surrounding it. I’m sure that this is what many people reading his books expect, the little mid rant nod and wink, just to remind them that “he’s on tv, you know”.
And he and the people who have worked with him on Peep Show and That Mitchell and Webb Look have much to be proud of, but I don’t personally need my hand held, I’m aware I’m reading a book… and I’m quite fine with that.
That little quarm aside I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of rants collumns, and it was lovely to read fresh (for me at least) material from David Mitchell. I giggled… a lot.
Read this book… It’s at the Albury Library in the non fiction section… or you could like buy it or something…
P.S. Working without spellcheck again… pardon any errors please and thank you
