I'm sure the graphic novel is great, but I really didn't like Sin City [the film], so am anti the 300. Especially if you can hide playboy in it!

*strolls in, opens the curtains and french windows to reveal today's scenery (summer Alpine mountain landscape) and in doing so allows the warm breeze to clear away the lurid air of pornography that's hanging round the room*

*goes over to ice bucket, pops open a bottle of champagne, pours some glasses and passes them round the room*

*nods over towards the cans of Stella on ice if people would prefer them*

*goes outside to the hot tub, slides out of gown and slides in the water being careful not to spill a drop of the bubbly*

*Notices DM has used the only copy of the Guardian as a coffee mat for the dog bowl, grunts, and picks up Daily Mail*

*Staggered to notice that Carrington's prediction of blizzards for Monday is supported by same amateur publication, along with a gust of murderers blowing down from Scotland, a front of pick-pocketing immigrants from eastern Europe, and a hail of chavs. There is a 95% chance of hoodie*

*Somewhat startled, starts to fear strangers*

*finds self straining somewhat to see inside with eyes that have become accustomed to the bright sunshine outside*
*peers*
*leans in further*
*eyes adjust, and suddenly finds he appears to be staring at DM's bosom*

Oh! Er, sorry. Um...

*Eyes adjust more. Finds that it is in fact a copy of Razzle that has come to rest on her gently snoozing form, open at the centrefold*
*thinks: gosh, if I had a monocle I'd be adjusting it right now*
*thinks: I wonder whether I'd look silly in a monocle. And a top hat.*
*sighs*

ah well... another pleasure lost to the past.

Wakes up with a start, finds Mr Ant lying face down in cleavage. Picks up the mobile phone from coffee table to summon the Gendarmes.

Becomes aware of darling Mr Batdog growling in the corner. Recoils in horror as feisty Mr Batdog leaps onto the seat of Mr Ants trousers. Poor sweet Mr Ant runs to swimming pool with small dog attached to bottom and leaps in.

Smiles to self and admires red toe polish. Goes to changing room to collect some towels for the boys when they stop fighting. Heads out to swimming pool.

*pops head round the corner of the door*

everyone, there's been a mention of the forum in the Times today, so I would appreciate it if you could all please make sure the place is respectably tidy as there will probably be some new people popping by. Crystal please tuck those publications away somewhere, we don't want people thinking of this place as an empornium do we? Thanks.

*Recovers from laughing fit following Ant, BatDog, Dulwichmum episode. Decides to leave for the day, as not looking best, and wouldn't want to scare off new comers!

Stands up, grabs handbag, rummiges about looking for the telephone number of the local 'King of Botox', finds damp Mr Batdog sitting on cushion in bag. Locates phone number, begins dialing while running for door with small pet in one hand and enormous handbag in the other, wonders if she needs her hi-lights touched up also and perhaps a spray tan?

Walks elegantly into quiet room (looking remarably refreshed). Gestures to au pair who follows with Dyson vacuum cleaner and Marigolds. Plumps cushion on aubergine velvet armchair by the window. Scoops Batdog from enormous handbag, pets on head, kisses on nose and places on cushion. Leaves quietly as au pair gets on with tidying up.

Just helping DMs au pair finish up plumpling the cushions. Looks around contentadly. Thinks back to the first tiptoes that entered the room. Maybe Ill just curl up on the chez long in the corner and enjoy for a while.
