You know that it's a slow news day in the middle of the silly season when you find non-stories like this on the BBC News website.

Essentially, someone has found a 62 year-old ex-Pat Briton in New Zealand who is not Lord Lucan. He says he's not, the police say he's not but:

Neighbour Margaret Harris said she became convinced he was Lord Lucan after seeing a picture of the peer in an old magazine.

She told TVNZ: "I spotted this piece and I thought 'oh my God, don't tell me that's who he is?'.

"I'm sure that is who he is because he is trying to make out he's a very poor man; poor my foot."
So that's all right then.


Lord Lucan and Mr Woodgate

The silly season is upon us again; all the odd little bits of news get sieved to the surface to fill newspaper columns, inconsequential items like the Israeli pull out from Gaza hide behind the enormity of Madge falling off her horse on her birthday, the Torygraph reports Cthuloid wars in and around Antarctica (courtesy [livejournal.com profile] princeofcairo, via [livejournal.com profile] pax_draconis). Yesterday the Times ran an article about growing spare faces in jars for when you need a face lift. They refrained from making a pun on Eleanor Rigby.

Times has attoned for this by forgetting to publish its T2 supplement – the important bit with the crossword and stuff, not to mention the telly listings – today, which makes me feel as though I should get a rebate on my 55p.

In the meantime, the members of the Athenaeum Club’s Thursday night role-play group have started emailing around Mouseketeer theme tune parodies based around the name of Yours Truly, just because I asked for a head count of who’s attending tomorrow.

And it’s hot.

It’s going to be a long day.
