OK then. There's a free exclusive "Weekend Warrior" thread to the first person who can deduce the origins of Feline Rower #1's official name of "Cally".

(2 such threads for all wrong answers!)

As a clue, it's far less cultured than Bart and potentially even less cultured than Slapshot.


You call that cultured..... Blake's 7, showin your age mate!!

Literary inspirations, well, you can't aim too high, might have gone for Chekov or Shostikovich but no other bugger can pronounce the characters names.


EDIT.... i'm sensing some boy hood crush on SR's behalf

***Crap joke alert***

The cat was named after the character in Blake's 7 rather than anyone in Star Trek

***End of crap joke alert***

I actually wanted to call beast "Galois" after my favourite mathematician.

(Sad story - Galois was something of an eccentric. Produced a huge body of work in his teens that no-one understood at the time. Fell in love with the daughter of the Mayor of Paris. Felt compelled to challenge a love rival to a duel. Stayed up all the night before writing up a small fraction of his work. Too tired the next day to shoot straight and paid the price, dying aged 21. Some of his work on Group Theory was ultimately used "for real" for the first time in the development of the atom bomb.)

Not quite so sad was that I was over-ruled and Cally was the name, inspired indeed by Blake's 7. I did have a bit of a thing for Cally at the time, but with hindsight, Jenna was more my type, or maybe, given my attraction to scary women, Servalan would have been more my cup of tea. Smile

I suppose the odd Dr Who assistant was attractive, Leela of the Sevateem, Louise Jamieson in a leotard was erm "inspirational" to a young teenage chap mind you so was Liz Sladen.

Back "on topic", for a while...

No cycling for a while I suspect. I was -15.5C in our part of the world this morning on the school run.

Could be time to dust down Mrs SR's old skis and do a bit of XC ski training on the loop round our village which is currently 1 mile of sheet ice. Smile

Definitely YES on this one! But my fav recent companion was the companion to the 10th Dr Who.  Martha.

A 'normal’ young beautiful woman with brains.  Also (and Ms G agrees with me on this one) a role model to young female viewers.

Tenth Dr Who and Martha

I've stopped now for the Winter as last year I made the mistake of carrying on and slipping on a patch of black ice. Ended up in casualty with two broken ribs. Not a good start to the festive season!
