Sainsburys Robot Tills


So, we went to the new Sainsburys near our office and there were no check out girls! Now Agent Triple P tends to spend a lot of time selecting his checkout girl but now they are all going to be replaced by these automatic, robotic horrors.

For a start we can't see the writing on their piddling little screens. Then there is about ten stages you have to go through to buy anything. It takes much longer than having a nice girlie. And we didn't get a receipt. It's just like the cursed online check-in at airports. How can you get an upgrade if you can't flirt with the check-in girl.

Progress? Humbug! We will stick to Tesco Metro from now on!

Kate Beckinsale 2

The answer is yes!

A few more rather fine pictures of Kate to add to yesterday's sample. One of these is my favourite as it demonstrates triumphally that she passes the critical Agent Triple P "does she look good in a vest?" test.

Kate went to Oxford where she read French and Russian but dropped out after her year abroad (in Paris) having already made five films including Much Ado About Nothing where she was completely luminous.

That's it Kate! you don't need them!

Apparently she really hates wearing knickers. Well, we think we hate her wearing them too.

Kate Beckinsale

We had a very long missive from HMS today, giving us a review of the DVD capability of his new Playstation 3. To be honest it was really aimed at Agent DVD and we were merely copied in. This is just as well as he lost us about half way through.

One of the DVDs he was testing on his new set up was Underworld, with Kate Beckinsale; an actress he appears to approve of.

Now we approve of Kate Beckinsale as well, despite only having seen her in Pearl Harbor (which we rather enjoyed-after all what's not to like in Kate Beckinsale and Jennifer Garner in nurses' uniforms) and Van Helsing, which was rather less satisfactory.

Surprisingly, we have not watched Underworld, even though we have the DVD of both it and the sequel.

However, it rather sounds like the sort of film we might enjoy but we need to find a clear evening when we can watch it in one go rather than in our usual disjointed fashion.

Anyway, here are a few High Definition photographs of Miss Beckinsale.

We find her much more attractive than Keira Knightley but then maybe that is because, whilst slender, she has proved that she can put weight on (10lbs for Van Helsing, 20lbs for The Aviator) and attain a more Agent Triple P approved figure.

Lost Babes: Ayshea Brough

Just a very, very nice outfit in almost every way.

Whilst watching UFO recently HMS seemed to be particularly taken by what he referred to as a "gratuitous" shot of an actress walking towards the film studio which served as cover for SHADO HQ. Agent Triple P doesn't really understand the term "gratuitous" when it comes to anything to do with young women on the screen.

The actress in question was Ayshea Brough who was also presenter of children's TV pop show Lift Off from 1969 to 1974. She recorded some songs of her own but they failed to make any impression in the charts and she moved to Beverly Hills in the eighties where she worked as an interior designer. Now 60 she is a property developer and lives in Grantham, Lincolnshire.

One of a whole host of lovelies from this Gerry Anderson show which we are sure we will return to in the future.

Lost Babes: Gabrielle Drake

The sexiest purple wig in TV history

We had a most enjoyable lunch with HMS today who has given us much to ponder on as regards future content of this blog. He mentioned that he had been watching Gerry Anderson's paranoid classic UFO. Agent Triple P caught an episode of this too, recently, and was much taken by Gabrielle Drake as Lt Gay Ellis.

Nice boots

Is the Chicken Tikka done yet?

So young, so cute!

Oh my goodness!

Fancy a shag?

So young, so perky!

She isn't really a lost babe as she still turns up in the occasional TV drama even now, appearing in Heartbeat in 2006.

She has never looked finer than in her bacofoil outfit and purple wig as the commander of Moonbase (although her character was later demoted for having a fling with one of her interceptor pilots and sent back to Earth). Back on Earth, and working at SHADO HQ, she had to forego her purple wig, however.

These pictures showcasing her undeniable charms come from Au Pair Girls (1972) directed by Val Guest (who directed one of our favourite films: When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth). Although you can buy Au Pair Girls on DVD you can't get When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth.  Something very wrong there.

Gabrielle was born in Lahore, Pakistan in 1944 and now lives in a converted Abbey in the Midlands. Her brother was tragic sixties hippy singer songwriter Nick Drake

Gabrielle in her forties-possibly even more attractive!

We were in Forbidden Planet this week and they had a Lt Gay Ellis doll! A bargain at £29.99!

Gabrielle today. Still very, very attractive!
