Hi, it’s Green. As you know, we lost contact with Grey’s travel around Australia during the upheavals here at the Greenygrey, but there was an exciting development today when we located Grey through its Werewolf of Oz blog.
New Theme for Werewolf of Oz
We picked it up because it has a bright new theme, so it was able to reach our blogoscope, There is good news on the blog, as it seems that Grey and its travel companions had been having trouble with a Lord of the Rings Smeagal-Gollum style nuisance, but they have now snagged Smiggin in one of its own holes.
Hi, it’s Green. On behalf of all at the Greenygrey we would like to congratulate Dastardly and Muttley for winning the contest to inspire the colour of the volunteer uniforms in the London Olympics 2012.

The news was broken by the Londonist, and they also provided the photo with the inspiration and models together that is copied below.
Although we congratulate both inspirations, we only like Muttley.
Hi it’s Wolfgang. No, our headline is not a breakfast, lunch or brunch menu, it’s to do with a couple of intriguing greenygrey questions I’ve been mulling over. And the mull refers to thinking rather than drinking; it’s a bit early for a that traditional Christmas tipple.
Greenygrey Weather: Chicken or Egg First Type Dilemma
With greenygrey weather dominating much of Britain and Europe at the moment, with green and grey joined as one for most of the last few days, I was wondering if such greenygrey weather preceded the greenygrey, or if the greenygrey was created before such green and grey weather.
I didn’t get very far I’m afraid, and it will have to remain an unexplained greenygrey mystery.
Why Pea Souper?
And it also got me wondering why foggy weather received the name ‘pea-souper’ back in the 19th century, as it looks more grey and mushroomy than green and peay.
Hi, it’s Green. I watched a great documentary by Rich Hall this week about American road movies, and it brought back memories of our Greenygrey Rambles across North America, which became an epic fantasy road book; when I was of course still one half of a full muddled superpower filled vegetarian werewolf with Grey.
Rich Hall’s Continental Drifters
The road movies documentary not only reminded me of my rambles with Grey, but also Grey’s solo rambles in Oz, which have reached epic proportions after over a year on the road.
Rich Hall does a pretty good job describing and analysing American road movies, although I was disappointed Thunderbolt and Lightfoot was not included, as I think it was a better film and fit than some of the movies included.
Watching Rich Hall’s Continental Drifters
Rich Hall’s Continental Drifters is available on BBC iplayer in the UK until 29th November. It seems to be streaming on other sites if you are in other parts of the world or reading this after that date.
