Wanted: Time Machine. Any condition. Cash waiting...

What does this lever do?...Oh shiiittt!
There just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day just lately. A mountain of stuff needs to be done and it has all arrived at the same time.

The garden needs weeding (urgently), the orchard needs mowing, the chicks need a new coop (urgently), I have orders for CGI's and for bits of furniture (££'s needed urgently), and I'm not even going to mention all the fishing that needs doing (v. urgently).

So I'm looking through the workshop to see if I have enough cogs, old spoons and assorted crap with which to build a time machine so I can get it all done. Maybe get it all done last year so I can have this year off.

Now there's a thought....

A TARDIS, Chris.. you need a TARDIS..not just some old silly clunker, old-time time machine.
And when you get your TARDIS built, pop over to New Mexico, in the past, and pick me up. I'm looking to relocate....desperately!
Good Luck!

Knowing my luck Meggs, I'd get there when you were about 3 years old!

Why you wanna relocate?

I made one in metal-work and science at school when I was 9 years old. That was two years ago. Talk about wasted youth.

They make a cheap version of the Tardis in blue plastic. They had about 2000 in Glastonbury this year. They are called the 'Turdis'.

Chris said...

The major problem with a Tardis, Tom, which is small on the outside but infinitely large on the inside is - how the hell do you furnish it?

One or two candlesticks just won't cut the mustard...

I hear ya. My garden is calling me, but I have some real work to tend first (you know, the type that I actually get paid for, so I should probably do it).
BTW, I looked up that Robin Hood race - you live in England?

Chris said...

Sure do Lisa, in Robin Hood's old tree actually.

It's irritating when real life gets in the way of proper work like gardening isn't it...

Chris, I'm trying to work out what CGI's are 'cos I'm thick. 'Chris's Great Inventions?' No? 'Candlesticks, Good Imitations?' I give up!
Hope you make lots of cash and then you can pay somebody else to do it all for you. Have a good weekend!
