You're looking at a screen-grab from a video I made in 1991 of
a house I once lived in nearly 20 years before.  Helping me that day
was my identical twin brother, GEORGE, who, thanks to my mum,
dressed exactly the same as me from a young age.  "You're identical
twins - so you should dress identical!" she'd say, with less than
perfect grammar.  (That's me at the front, incidentally.)

It came in handy whenever we got up to individual mischief
as teenagers, because the police could never charge either of us as
they simply didn't know which one was the culprit.  Ah, what fun!  I
remember once challenging six guys to a fight - then running 'round
the corner of the lockups (where George was waiting) when three
of them chased me.  Me and my brother then set about them, and
they staggered back to their pals, saying "It's an ambush -
there's two of them!" 

Of course, the above is all a total figment of my imagination
(apart from making a video of my old house), invented purely for
the purpose of seeing how much nonsense I can write and hopefully
provide a chuckle for you in the process.  Next time, I'll relate how I
single-handedly saved the world from the threat of destruction by a
megalomaniac bent on global domination - and let my best pal
JAMES BOND take all the credit.

  Hey!  Where'd everybody go?


(Okay, so I lied about the twin.  Would you
believe he's my Life Model Decoy?)

You'd make a good Bond Villain. Just saying hope I don't give you any ideas....

World domination has long been an ambition of mine, PS, so relax - I had that idea some time ago.

I have always suspected that you were a mutant! Now I know! You're Duplicate Kid!
( Hey, weren't you in the Legion Of Super-Heroes? )

I've certainly been called a mutant before, JP, 'though I don't think it was meant as a compliment. (And she was no great shakes herself.)
