Who Ate The Pie At Night...

As a break from the Martian, I ended up spending the last couple of evenings sculpting a clay caricature of Sir Patrick Moore, telly's mad octogenarian stargazer, for the weekly Challenge on the inestimable b3ta website.

It was nice to have a task with a clear (and near!) deadline, forcing me to get off my arse and do something! And the feedback on b3ta has been nice too...

This was a comic (one picture): Man standing at the window, gazing at the stars, when his wife asks him with cynial look upon her face: "So you say you know, what message the stars bear for us ?" while the stars in the sky clearly form the words "To hell with you!" (translated, so...).
Nice sculpture !

Cheers, chaps!

Peopleingorillasuits, I'll get back to you by email soon about the stuff we discussed - been off work recently due to oyster-induced food poisoning. Bastards (the oysters, that is...).

Whoo-hoo!

We don't see enough of Sir Patrick this side of the pond. Do you suppose Michael York added a drop or two of the Noted Astronomer to his performance as Austin Powers' daft boss?
