A numerical meme (all we like sheep…)
Via, evidently, everyballyone.
 
FOUR NAMES YOU GO BY:
  1. Gervase
  2. Wemyss
  3. A school and university nickname that nothing could induce me to reveal
  4. With irony, under protest, and to my considerable embarrassment, ‘Squire’
 
THREE THINGS YOU ARE WEARING RIGHT NOW:
  1. Grey flannel bags
  2. A tattersall shirt I’m specially fond of
  3. A Very Necessary woollen jumper

THREE THINGS YOU WANT VERY BADLY AT THE MOMENT:
  1. More tea
  2. Luncheon, which cannot now be long delayed
  3. For the Clumbers to leave off plaguing me w/r/t luncheon
 
THREE THINGS YOU DID LAST NIGHT:
  1. Odd, I smell rather of smoke. Could it have been Bonfire Night?
  2. Wrote
  3. Read
 
THREE PEOPLE YOU LAST RANG UP:
  1. The butcher

  3. Uncle George
THREE THINGS YOU ARE GOING TO DO TOMORROW:
  1. Read

  3. Have a word with the estate agent w/r/t some property I’m flogging. It’s mad to have things simply sitting about being otiose and no good to anyone

THREE OF YOUR FAVOURITE DRINKS:
  1. Tea, preferably Ceylon

From now on, obviously, I shall call you "Squire". :)

"Tales from the stave" really is very good radio - though I've missed a lot of this series, alas.

Did you know there's a beverage with (literally) your name on it?

A propos nothing at all, I had occasion to visit a proper liquor store last week, to buy a birthday present for a good acquaintance. Imagine my surprise when I discovered "Wemyss" among the rarer (and more expensive) malt whiskies!

Why is my first thought: isn't Gervase the first name of this well know British comedian?

And my second is you must be really close to your butcher and greengrocers if you've exchanged telephone numbers. Why no love for your fishmonger or baker?
