There is no U in Humour; An alternate version of M's office. A lot of in house references for FBF. May wasn't pleasant, hopefully June will be a fresh start and I'll be back on the writing wagon.
"Saltzman," Bond said.
M ground her teeth as Bond somehow managed to miss another gear he was mercilessly thrashing the classic cars gear box. The harsh metallic grinding and the smell of burning clutch nauseated her. So much so she was relived to see the flash from the missile launcher. They had been on the road for an hour but only managed to make a few miles. Bond it would appear wasn't good at roundabouts. Left hand turns. Right Hand turns. Traffic lights. Nor straightaways.
'Pick a bloody gear' she murmured watching dispassionately as the smoke trial of the missile rushed towards her.
'Sorry ma'ma.' Bond replied flatly, 'the cars I normally drive are posher.' He fiddle with the controls trying to turn off the wipers streaking dirtily across the windscreen.
A red light flashed on the dash accompanied by warning beep. Bond forgot trying to turn off the wipers squinting ponderously at the warning light. AMS (Anti-Missile System).
Where the hell did that come from Bond wondered regretting his decision not to read the 1965 DB5 owners manual. Instead he bet the manual right after he won the vintage beast on what had turned out to be losing hand of poker. He had thought the car was good luck so he couldn't possibly lose even with a 7-2 off suit. Tragic but it was too late now for regrets. Was "AMS" German for clutch? He cursed under his breath as the intensity of the warning grew. Almost too late he flicked the corresponding switch, a blinding burst of phosphorous light shot skyward intercepting the Lockheed Martin FGM-148 Javelin (R).
'Blimey!' exclaimed Bond witnessing the resulting explosion.
M let out a breath she wasn't aware she was holding. Uncertain if she had cause to be relieved she only knew she would live to Die Another Day.

I was going to take them to Q's (Bond insisting Boothroyd is Q not B). For the big reveal the DB5 has the drop cloth pulled off it Bond's heart sinks, 'it's been repossessed' he says'
Anyway it all got too long and needed to be cut short.

I was trying to go for Queer Eye kind of deal. I doubt anybody remembers how big that was. Don't think I did that well with it someone I know thought I was say Craig was gay, not at all. Kind of the opposite.
