Eh, I'd rather not have anything to do with that show, ever.

(I hope the comparisons with May end at hairstyles!)

Oooh, I'd love to get my hands on the UF single. I keep meaning to get aorund to getting a copy, but I'm lazy and forgetful and not so motivated with regards to U2 as I used to be.

I plan to watch the first episode to see just how shit it is, but that's it.

Well, do you drive really slowly?

Actually, the more I watch Top Gear, the more I realise Jeremy Clarkson's personality and my father's are worryingly similar. It's funny when it's on TV, but when you have to put up with it, it's more ... arseholish.

From GNW:

"What's the emblem of Adelaide's netball team?" "Tits."

Just made me think of our earlier conversation with Screwtape.

I had described to Ali, Ax and U-Wen that before I had a haircut it was more like Conspiracy of Hope era Bono. Is this making the image any stranger for you.

U2's dodgy b-side selections goes back pretty much to the start of their career!

I like Captain Slow!

Anyway May did a show about real ale, that'll up your alley?

Actually, I speed a lot - not too far over the limit (I hate speeding, and drink-driving, you know it's a big thing in the city too but coming from the country it killed a lot of people I knew, but anyway) and I also often react to things.

Your dad's like Clarkson? That's like the perfect combination of awesome and pain-in-the-arse.

I had to look that Bono era up.

Now to the best of my knowledge you wear funny black hats.
