The Roof is on Fire...

Arrived home on Saturday evening to see a whole heap of smoke coming from down in the valley. Not just the usual smog-inducing coal smoke, but a real column of filthy black smoke. I was tempted to ring 111, but I couldn't quite work out what street it was on, and I figured with that much smoke surely someone else would have called first. It was slightly disarming about how slow the arrival of the first appliance was. The Willowbank station is not that many blocks away, and it's permanently manned. Pretty gutting for those involved I'd imagine.

Whedon needs the waterbed the m.......r's cashed, cash m.......r cash.

I wonder if anyone still has that tape, lol.

Looks like it was a serious blaze but I didn't see anything about it in the digital Oddity, what was the story?

I don't know about the tape, but the Single Woman's Guide to Sex somehow came into my possession. I blame the subversive one...

The digital edition of the ODT is a bitch. It's on Page 5 of August 22. I struggle with connectivity, so I can't provide a link at the moment...
