On a
roll. Facing
the right

way. Touch
& go.
Go local,

mandrake. Butter
no parsnips.
'Were the

right people
recognised?' Mount

Simonize the
auditor's attention
span. Close

production. 'Did
not set
out' a

roster of
talking heads.
Spleen vent

operational. Operating
on three
little pigs.

A load
of old. . . .

Hiccup or
decadence? In
art name

and/or defamed
divine. An
auto pen

deliberates. Three
stroke zilch.
Recruitment is

zoned. Hardens
on impact.

Rerouted pedestrian
flow an
'offensive act',

or so
they say
so. Acting

offensive. A
'pushy broad'.
Indulge that

bulge. 'He's
not a
man.' On

the brink.

Only a
few books.
Standing on

a sword.
Couple deny.
X claims

Y. Z
shuts up.
'Must have

access to
Xmas.' Cancelled
due to

lack of
interest. 'How
do they

cope?' By
selling themselves
and food.

Coy boy
toy. People
in a

queue. Lancelot
fails. A
big pointing

finger. Safety
fears wipe
billions off.

An obvious
gesture pushes
buttons. Flamethrower

blamed. Toy

Promo revamp
Rumpelstiltskin. Torn
off a

strip. Judges
defend the
terror. Leadership

he craves.
'Why I
wrote the

sickest of
situations.' Music
is in

place. 'Fully
entitled to
insist on

the proper
limits.' Do

They gull
themselves and
seek a

reparation. Somersault
to meet
the dawn;

dance attendance
on the
second beat.

Skip departure;
settle to
a comfortable

Calcium that
sticks. Pile
it on

folks! Required
for special
study. Humiliation

to end
the day.
'The real

threat to
the life
of the

nation.' At
home with
the shameless.

'Do we
know why
it attracts

millions?' What
drove me
out. The

private brand
zero. Star
affixed to

tree. Complete
with fake
bomb. No

end to
grumpy torture.

'I reserve
my right
to be

rude.' Too
big for
her home.

Returns to
her beginnings.
Decision is

close. A
budget forward.

The 'greatest
generation' as
catastrophe. Police

stopped style
attack. 'Is
my mother

trying to
kill me?'
A former

legal giant.
'A little
too much

in evidence.'
Baton Santa.

Defy the
prophets of
gloom. Room

to stray
further. Father
figures. Wins

libel victory
in pieces.
Blowing up

on Margate
Sands. 'I
don't like

guns.' Butter
reviewers. He

rest of

Not only
is there
no. 'Bloody

do-gooder.' The
law would
ever be

applied. Pegs
child. Boosts
appeal. Ballet

to the
masses died.

Row row
row yr
boat. Push

yr body
to breaking
point. Uncoverable

tracks. Over-
zealous fall
guy. New

deep cuts
run out
of parking

lot. An
editor at
large. A

Home Office.
Made-to-measure suit
of armour.

Whizzkids try
a. Hearts
desire. Expressible

fire. Burning
higher. Absentee
mire. (Try

harder.) Bones
inspire. Licensed
flier. Burgeoning

spire. Lamentable
nadir. Enough.

Sunday, December 12, 2004

Week after
writing. Fraud
probes. Strike

moves. Fears
could prompt
a shake-

up law.
Grown concern.
'Don't stick

your gun
here, probe.'
Face got

serious. Heard
your feedback.

Saturday, December 11, 2004

Resources increased
from day
one. 'A

huge change,
a change
they rejected.'

Chance to
sack chilled.
Ally handed

jail. Faces
attack spots.
'You will

never get
to heaven
with a

broken heart.'
It could
take two.

'Where we
had that
picnic.' Inner

sun. Sun-
damaged. Sent
apart. A

party piece
followed. Aid
for growing

boys. Risks
follow video
to safety

first. Origami
bombs. Your

Children of
the nude
foray. Knot

not prurient.
A new
round. Freeze

consideration. Deride
daily fog
after hours

in a
minibus. 'In
my office

all weak.'

Thursday, December 02, 2004

Falling towards
being lifted
away. Set

theory. Acting
socks. 'Did
you no

wrong'. 'Perhaps
you have
already a

set.' Women
stop writing.
'There just

isn't any
juice, I
