Trivia, Tats and a little teasing

Part Two – Trivia & Sign Language

A quick shout out to Justin-Paul and Anton, two Ale Stars regulars who are also readers of this blog. And very god blokes they are too. Although Anton and his unwavering support for the North Melbourne Kangaroos is, at times a little questionable! See above. I also wanted to take the opportunity to thank them for helping to get a laugh on the night.

Justin-Paul ‘signs’ for Anton and, as I’ve said here before, when Shandy is hosting, J-P has to translate from Scottish into English and then into Auslan. On Tuesday they were not only seated behind me, making it more difficult to lip-read, but they also had to cope with me throwing in made-up words like ‘perfuncturolate’ – just to see J-P bruise his hands trying to finger-spell it, then watch as Anton asked him to spell it again, then Justin from the Taphouse explaining that it was a made-up word! Thanks for your understanding guys.
