New Pope

Without One Before to look at I don't really know what to think about the Pope situation. Presumably Sarah has battened down the hatches and is waiting for the Apocalypse.

Oh well, Ratzinger got in, and he is Benedict the 16th. Pretty underwhelming name.

I did like the white smoke thing. Nice and dramatic, although red may have stood out better against the -ahem- white sky.

This is where Planet Llew departs from Earth... over on my site they drew names out of a hat & Kiwi Tom Williams became Pope Victor Hilarius.

Horror is the correct response to the Pope situation.

I woke up in the early hours of this morning shaking uncontrollably and after swathing myself in woollen garments turned on the telly to the sight of the bells ringing and then the terribly disappointing announcement. And then I spent the next 4 hours in the grip of a bout of vomiting and diarrhoea.

Of course that may be attributable to a stomach bug and not the actual holy spirit trying to warn me that the end of times was imminent.

So you're alive then?

Oh poor sarah. Easier really to not give a shit about who the pope is I think.

And I hope you feel better soon. There are lots of nasty lurgies around I think. All the boys in this house are crook.
