Come Fly with me



Come fly with me, lets fly lets fly away



'Woman upgraded after dying in economy during flight from Delhi to London' - Reuters.







If you can use, some exotic booze
Theres a bar in far bombay



'A British Airways passenger travelling first class has described how he woke up on a long-haul flight to find that cabin crew had placed a corpse in his row. The body of a woman in her seventies, who died after the plane left Delhi for Heathrow, was carried by cabin staff from economy to first class, where there was more space. Her body was propped up in a seat, using pillows. The woman's daughter accompanied the corpse, and spent the rest of the journey wailing in grief - The Times.

Come fly with me, well fly well fly away



"I remember looking at this frail, sparrow-like woman and thinking she was very ill. She kept slipping under the seatbelt and moving about with the motion of the plane. When I asked what was going on I was shocked to hear she was dead" - BA passenger Paul Trinder.


Its perfect, for a flying honeymoon - they say
Come fly with me, well fly well fly away !!!!!

PACK UP AND FLY AWAAAAAAAAY !

There seems to be confusion over the subject of Tory leader David Cameron's new hair.

Hairdresser to the stars, Roger Craig, said on Radio 4's Today Programme yesterday: "It's a huge step to change your parting. I've always kept mine on the right and have always been led to believe that real men put their parting on the right-hand side. It's a bit more feminine on the left side - I think most ladies part on the left side."

Social commentator Peter York said on BBC 2's The daily Politics: "Cameron doesn't look like a Tory Toff any more, he now looks like a City lad. A parting on the left is more manly." Enough!!!

Well, Pee is tousled haired, so he doesn't have any parting !!!
I love you xxx

electro-kevin said...

An upgrade for a relative too hmm ?

I'm definitely taking a terminally ill OAP whenever I fly now.

eliza said...

Hi Kev
If you want, I'll take you with me to Cuba next month to visit uncle Fidel ! I hear he's going to go upstairs soon, so I'll take him with me on the flight back to England !!!

CoralPoetry said...

Hi,

If you had a tracker installed at your blog you would see that I have been directed here many times from Ellee Seymour’s blog where you posted a message into her condolences post.

“I COULD NOT SURVIVE SUCH A TRAGEDY.”

It’s OK, though, cause there are a few thousand versions of Ellee Seymour, plus a few more thousand versions of David Anthony, plus a few zillion versions of you. I don’t mind at all. Just happy to meet another one.

Regards,
Coral

Newmania said...

Coral I know absolutely nothing about computers and I did not understand what you were saying .Sorry , you sound friendly enough..I think and you are very welcome to say anything you like here .

( In what sense are there zillions of me..sounds great for the world I must say..I could do with two or three myself )

Rach said...

I usually make that my motto wherever possible. Thanks for visiting my blog

Newmania said...

Allo Rach......quite pretty isn`t she....and a bit down at the momen I`d go and console her....that when they are weak and suggestible yuk yuk .

nick drew said...

Mania I recall some weeks ago you writing that cyber-stalking might become a problem

so what does that make you?!

do you roam the ether with your damsel-in-distress-signal detector?

(where do I buy one?)

Seriously Rach, as utterly hackneyed as this sounds, when I was *ahem* about your age I was thoroughly shafted at work, out on my ear. Someone told me then: this will turn out to be the best thing that could happen to you. They received a fairly bitter churchillian response.

But it was true.

Newmania said...

Nice post Nick , except for the negative comments about me. I have also had a carreer with ups and downs and pretty much had to start again a couple of years ago.

I think you can always find a way tio make a living but I am battling with the fact that I willl never achieve anyhting beyond that in my working life.


The difficult thing is to keep taking any interest at all....

nick drew said...

I will buy you a drink or three (sound of moths escaping) and give you some career advice

then you can turn out like me...

The Ludingtonian said...

I think you can always find a way tio make a living but I am battling with the fact that I willl never achieve anyhting beyond that in my working life.

And here I thought I was the only one.

I'm the same age as you, N, and am also dealing with the increasingly obvious reality that I will never be rich or wildly successful or a household name. The world, in fact, is not my oyster. The best I can hope for is to get out alive, and even that is looking unlikely in the long run.

Heart Of Darkness said...

I said to my friend - "so now you've got to die to get upgraded - a short skirt isn't enough?" and she laughed and laughed and laughed - and changed into jeans for her next flight... :)

Thanks for the comment on my blog, BTW!

electro-kevin said...

I think you're turning into a right 'magnet' by the look of it N.

Keep your hair tousled.

I am looking forward to flying to Spain with David Allen (BA, of course!). When he's asleep, he looks dead (as you will discover if you visit my blog). We'll start off in economy and land up in business class. I've already planned it.

Ms Smack said...

ugh, how unfortunate that her daughter should have that as a lasting memory of her mother.

Poor dear.

LOL @ kevin 'keep your hair tousled'

Margorie said...

Bloody Paul Trinder. If he was that concerned, he could've asked for the original seats of corpse+daughter. And he was apparently concerned that corpse would start decomposing and give off a foul smell. Surely it doesn't take that long to fly to Delhi?!

Newmania said...

Margarie that is a different take on it isn`t it . Is this Trinder famous then ? never heard of him...but then I have only just worked out who " Pete Doherty " is and I am far from certain I understand now

I remember there was a superb sick / funny sketch in the Kentucky fried Movie called " Bring the dead back into the community " ....There were happy helpers in matching sweat shirts teaching corpses archery...and so on . It you think what they were getting at it was cruel beyond belief.


Guilty Laugh Department eeeek

Newmania said...

Hi Miss Smack I love seeing you here ....I notice tyou have been a lazy moo on your blog recently though and it wopuld appear that the last date you had was a bit of a false dawn

Newmania said...

Hi Heart Of Darkness... I suppose that is a reference to the Conrad Story. I have read some Conrad but to be honest more from a sense of duty thann much else. Have you read , the " Secret Sharer
"? I think that was one I enjoyed .

The narative structure of Heart of darkness is good though the way the story is told by the sick man on the leporous boat in the Thames

Newmania said...

NickI look forward to your advice . My plan at the moment is to open up a lucrative carreer in Local Politics ...I am certain that I can get myself onto some planning commitee and sell my favours like a heartless whore.

Its a plan anyway..and I don`t see why not we are moving to a Conservative area anyway...for the schools mostly...( You seem to have ended up ok to me anyway)

Newmania said...

Ludington i have enjopyed youir comments recently and i sense a kindred spirit in some ways .

BTW I am certain that I have heard that tale of the organist before

EF Benson?...sounds familiar anyway

Newmania said...

KEV- I see you nosing around all over the place I thought you would find that your unique Kev views and ( appalling ) gags would be popular

God knows why you are bashful about it Drew is prepared to inflict some of theb worst rhymes you will ever see on unsuspecting bystanders " Cruel amd Unusual " Is the phrase that leaps to mind

Nietzsche said that to make someone feel shame was the worst thing you could do to them

(but his theories of shame did not have to reckon with the monumental shamelessness of Cherie B)

eliza said...

Hitch- xxx (giggle)
Peeeeeeee... who are these ladies you're talking to? What about me?
Keeev, as long as your... pu. is tousled that's ok by me !!! (giggle) xxx

Margorie said...

Mr N, I haven't seen that Kentucky thing. Nothing wrong with having a guilty laugh, but my (lapsed) Catholic guilt often comes back and bites me on the bum afterwards. I blame my mother.

I have no idea who Trinder is really, I just read the article few days ago and thought 'what an utter arsehole'. I bet he's a serial-complainer.

Newmania said...

Eliza I have always thought you were a bit of a mystery , your peoms were sometimes not bad at all and at other times I am almost certain that you are not serious . Typical woman you never know where you are with the cunning minxes...

Newmania said...

Nietzsche said that to make someone feel shame was the worst thing you could do to them



I take it you were not in charge of interrogation during your glorious miliatary career Nick. Offered a choice between shame and elwectrodes attached to my my dangly bits I `ll " take the Shame ".


On the other hand I remember reading somewhere , it might have been Orwell ,that some Englishmen would quite literally rather die than face social embarrasment. I just about imagine that.

Newmania said...

Margorie-Catholic guilt often comes back and bites me on the bum afterwards. I blame my mother.



I find that blaming my mother is usually a safe option . it is all her fault ...(and i `m going right back to the kennedy assasination here....scary woman)

mutleythedog said...

I have known several corpses that could fly e.g Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Being dead is not necessarily an obstacle to enjoying flying. In politically correct parlance by the way we Zombies prefer being referred to as "differently dead". By the way Mother Teresa was an old friend of mine before anyone takes offence- I know she would have enjoyed the joke, the old dear!

Newmania said...

Thats briliant Mutley , some where in North London a little Broker screeched like a baboon , for all I know you heard

electro-kevin said...

Hey - looks like parteeee time here ! Anyone brought the vodka ???

Newmania said...

I sometimes wonder if I imagined it but there was a time when I could go out , enjoy myself and not drink , it was when I was very young.

Hi Kev...I `m filing clippings planning another long rumination on life the Universe and everything. With all this putting the world to rights how can it stay so bloddy disgracefully wrong eh ?

Its not right

The Ludingtonian said...

N -

Well, I thought the organist schtick was mine. Have pootled over to Wikipedia to correct my woeful ignorance of popular literature, I'm still none the wiser.

However, I shall have to take your word for it. So not only will I not be rich, famous, etc. and so forth (see above), it seems I also cannot be unplagiarisingly witty. Slough of Despond, not waving but drowning...

OK Lud pretty good , the sort of thing that people used to say " Good enought for Punch " about ,in fact
