Here's another way to pass the night watch on the flight deck.
Have some fun with Google. Type in "[your name here] needs" and let google tell you what it is you need. Post the top ten, or just the funny ones.
Vila needs (my comment in brackets):
- More of this string band fever. (All right then. I don't know about the fever bit but I like guitars.)
- watching. (Hey, I'm not that bad!)
- psychotherapy. (No thanks, I had enough of that when they were trying to readjust me.)
- to survive. (I'll second that!)
- help in Freedom City. (How'd they know I'm on my way there? But yes, it's probably true. I'll take Kerril with me.)
- some new jokes. (Who is this? Orac? Look, I was starting you off at primary school level, I'll have you know.)
- a woman to cheer him up. (Got one, thanks!)
- walkies. (Look, I'm only puppy-like. And the only time I ever wore a collar wasn't very pleasant.)
- pushing. (I do not. I'll do it if no one else can, but I've never seen the point of work for work's sake.)
- something very obvious explained to him. (Yeah? Like what?)
