I met John Lloyd a couple of weeks ago, and would very much like to find out how I go about this. Please let me know! Many thanks.

Does the casting couch still exist in these enlightened times?

No comment ...

But quite how elves are appointed in shrouded in the mysteries of something called the Very Odd Ritual Indeed, and if I were to say much more than that then they'd cut my pointy ear off.

It's been rumoured that making lots of interesting posts to these forums can help, so I'd try that one if I were you. There are other ways, but you really Do Not Want To Know.

I think Kat has decided on attempting the Very Odd Ritual Indeed.

Suze - Does your use of capitals above demonstrate that you're related to Paddington Bear and perhaps have ancesters in darkest Peru?

PS: Does the ritual involve loud banging, vacuuming and Celine Dione? (thanks google)

I would have thought it was Thomas the Tank Engine, and therefore exist on a mystical vaguely nonexistent island off the coast of Britain.

Oh - I thought that only applied to Really Useful Engines?

Yeah - confirmed in the OED.

But Awdry always uses capitals in phrases, I'll open up my big special shiny T-t-T-E collection to any page...

...and I think you're right. Very Useful Engines, or Very Naughty Engines etc. etc.

Does this mean that Suze's Peruvian Ancestry is still a go-er?

If I told you that I would, as they say, have to kill you.

But I can confirm that it does not involve Celine Dion ...

Excellent - that narrows it down a bit...
