    I think you're probably right. But it's still not funny.

    I practically hung up on you because pretty much the first thing you said was you had to go, I thought you were saying it wasn't a great time for a conversation but texted you "have a great time :-)" to try to make it clear there were no hard feelings. I don't think it's fair to imagine I'm being bitter if I don't get in touch for four weeks when you haven't initiated one conversation with me in the last six months. If you want to link the slow-down to a particular event, then tbh my vanity was more wounded by your reaction to Captain Bert (I was definitely a bit grumpy about that!!) and I'd say the neverending stuff with BoD and Cloud was also a huge demoralising factor. But look, think how unresponsive/unavailable you've been since Summer - I couldn't keep trying that often for ever, it's not fair to attack me for getting in touch less when you kept rebuffing my attempts to be friends. You're rewriting history when you suggest that we could have been friends all along if I'd just acted like it, which isn't fair when you resisted all my attempts to reconnect for so long, wouldn't make time to catch up, wouldn't see me, etc.. I don't think it's fair for you to imagine unflattering reasons to explain why I slowed down when there are so many perfectly reasonable ones. I absolutely *was* bitter last year, but only because you had so much of my time for so long when you needed it and then refused point blank to make quality time for me on Skype when you no longer did. That seemed a bit much when you and I had only bonded in the first place because you were stuck in a one-sided friendship, I couldn't believe you'd do that to me after a year and a half. But I've not been carrying a grudge over that since my birthday, I've just been really anxious to be mates again.

    That was a smashing time, Paul encouraged me to go scrub some gussets which is a memory I'll always hold dear.

    It was great! It's fantastic Ed remember every detail of an episode shot almost 33 years ago.

    Guest appearances of Ruby Wax and Mr. Flibble were a nice surprise.

    I hope they'll do more soon.

    I'm so disappointed that I missed all the fun. Did Talkie Toaster make an appearance?

    I was wondering Cloud, what do you think Mike Rolls would be doing during lockdown?

    Well he would be drinking his drink of chouce (black sambuca) in his own home as he can't go to the pub, also a lot of online games, likely spunking his magic. Also i would wager molesting girls remotely using non stop text messages.
