Okay... some of you may remember - because it was *terribly* interesting - the saga of my PS4 console delivery back in 2013. To jog your memories, this was that time when DPD delivered my console stuff to a different-numbered house on a different street, informing me that my kit was at "a house with a fountain in the garden". The delivery driver that day was named "Ricky".


Just been advised that Ricky is delivering my parcel today :fp: . Could this be an opportunity for Ricky to put things right? Or am I gonna be out searching my area for water features at midnight?

Kidnap him and get him to complete an elaborate series of dangerous tasks in order to obtain redemption.

Then glitterbomb him.

Follow it on the website and you will get a time slot and a how long until your delivery. They have an app too which gives you alerts 30and 15 minutes before delivery

According to the website, Ricky will be arriving between 10:36 and 11:36. Perhaps the other DPD delivery guy was a Ricky impersonator?!?

DPD are trolling me :x :lol: .

The status changed to "Sorry, we were unable to deliver your parcel as there was no one present to sign for the delivery; we left calling card number xxxxxx" :shock: ... and I raced downstairs to find no card :x . But then Ricky drove up with the parcel :toot: .

ive had good experiences with DPD. it really comes down to whether the driver has a brain or not.
considering Ricky shares his name with another more famous Ricky, im not confident youre going to get your parcel jawa :'(

In the story of Jawa's life, who would we cast?

Cast members:

Jawafour:
Jawafive:
Male neighbour:
Female neighbour:
Ricky the rubbish DPD delivery guy:
Angry swarm of wasps:

Director:

(Jawa, can you advise who else might need to be on this? Doesn't matter if it ends up being a small/tight cast - I imagine it being a gritty piece so perhaps a small ensemble is better.)

Had one of those Monday mornings. The S hook on my toilet (the bit that connects the handle to flush to the cistern) somehow came off...the little stick thing slipping into the cistern. For a while I was thinking I'd have to call the plumber...but after much contemplation (well, 5 minutes...) I partially drained the water and used a Dyson V8 to suck it back up again, grabbing it in the process. :datass:

:o ... :lol: . I reckon we'd be able to cast entirely from within GRcade... we have enough characters to suit the roles :toot: .

KK *is* Mario :toot: .
