In some circles I frequent she is what is known as a gravy head,

My luxury item would be my PC


If I asked for miss Brook for her skills as a conversationalist she woule be disallowed as being useful.
I would request her for purely recreational reasons ;-D

The pendant was wrong - as pendants often are. Although people imagine desert islands to be tropical there is no reason why it has to be. An island in the Orkneys could be 'desert' if there was no one living there.

But then the gulls still don't go with the music, whose lyrics mention 'a tropical moon' (though they aren't sung on the version played).

[pedantic]Tropical moon is an astronomical term, and can therefore shine on any island, desert or not, in any part of the world.[/pedantic]

So the Outer Hebridean island of Mingulay is a desert island?

Hmmm, don't think I'd fancy being stranded there, with or without Kelly Brook :)

but I can't see any reference to this as an astronomical term, except perhaps with the archaic use of "moon" to mean "month". Do you have a source for this, mckeonj. (I ask because I'm interested in what it might mean, rather than to prolong the argument.)
