This will make no sense if you don't know what a Womble is.

Andy: I once went to Wimbledon Common.
Julie: You once went to a Womble con*?
Andy: No - Wimbledon Common. I was a kid, my parents were driving past it, so we stopped and spent an hour looking for Wombles. Did you ever see the Wombles?
Julie: Yes. But they seemed like a public health message from the eighties**.
Andy: You mean like Captain Planet?
Julie: No - Captain Planet was cool, because it had superheroes in it***.
Andy: So the Wombles would have been better with superpowers? But they had awesome adventures!
Julie: All they did was find different rubbish each week and build stuff out of it. They had the power of MacGyver.
Andy: I am so putting this on Livejournal.*****


*This would be awesome though.
**Seventies, actually. But the distant past all looks the same to the youth of today****.
***And apparently a computer game for the Amiga that Julie played to death.
****Apparently now I won't be getting any duvet tonight.
*****Paraphrasing, obviously.
******This note isn't actually attached to anything. I just like the triangle shape the notes are making.
