Tell It To Al
It's summer time and the SU Crew are all planning their hols. Last year under the iron fist of pocket sized dictator Sumpter they all got on a bus and went to a quarry in Cornwall for two weeks sweaty hard labour. 1992 looks much more cheerful 'cos big Al' has told everyone to go away for the whole summer courtesy of the mag. But where will they go?
"I'm off to South America to save the rainforests." Yes, Big Al' has some big ideas about his holidays. The fact that he eats ten Burger Mac 'best South American beef' burgers every day and runs a tropical hardwood furniture shop in his spare time doesn't disturb him in the least. "I'm willing to give up my entire livelihood to save the world from an environmental disaster," he said yesterday over an alligator sandwich with golden eagle egg mayonnaise on top.
Steve has few pleasures in life, which is just as well 'cos they're all very expensive and a little risky to say the least. His latest and greatest holiday idea to date is being locked up for a month with a bevy of lovely ladies, a truck load 'o heavy metal muzik and a large, inflatable banana in the fantasy castle at EuroDisney. He hasn't got around to explaining why he wants to include the last item yet but we're all waiting patiently, if a little worriedly by for the answer.
Matthew wants to go to Jamaica for his summer holidays. "I love the flora and fauna of the Caribbean islands and reggae music is simply the best." The only problem is that, because Matthew is so new on the SU Crew Big Al' is going to make him stay behind and look after the magazine and his hardwood furniture shop while everyone else is on holidays. However Matthew reckons that if he can move the whole magazine to Jamaica he can publish it from there. Best of luck Matt.
Yvette wants a holiday in a Star Trek 'The Next Generation' Holodeck, "one of those big rooms on the new Enterprise where you can set up your own hologram holiday scenario and start or stop it as you wish." In fact Yvette wants to get her hands on all the yummy men that one of these machines can create, then just as they're about to fall In love with her, she can make them disappear. Don't you know that's cruel Yvette? "Do I look as if I care!"
Tina doesn't ask for much either. Her fantasy holiday is a trip to the moon. She says she wants to experience zero gravity, have her face pressed to the window of a space craft and watch the earth move below. She has applied for several space programmes but unfortunately the only one she was accepted for was in the Soviet Union which was subsequently axed because of the revolution. Or so she says.
