Jim "private jet" Douglas
Being a bloody stinking yuppie, our Jim just had to go on the piste, that's skiing to you. He's bought his dayglo green and purple salopettes, got some mirrored raybans and applied some of that gungy white zinc stuff to his kisser and now he's ready for a mega pose on the top of a snowy slope. God, what a poser, I hope he breaks both legs.
Garth "where's me backpack man" Sumpter
Garfy baby has decided it's time to find himself (maan), so he's booked into a Kibbutz in the Himalayas for the summer. He's bough himself some loon pants and a string of love beads and a pack of josticks, and is now practicing his spaced-out Hippie look (maaaaaaan).
Oz "a nice quiet break" Browne
Oz decided to go for a peaceful holiday so the team recommended an 18-30's trip to Benidorm. He's hoping to meet some interesting chums and a better class of girlie (fool). He's just heard he's sharing a room with his predecessor Tim 'lagered up' Noonan and 25 of his mates. Rather you than me, matey.
Poor old Al. She did all the ringing round for the others and booked up their vacations and the rotten sods have spent all the cash in the holiday kitty and left her with nothing. She's currently on the blower to her Auntie Vi, who says she's welcome to stay at her 'smashing' caravan on Canvey Isle, with her and Uncle Eric, as long as she doesn't mind sleeping with their incontinent Wire-haired Terrier. Al can hardly wait.
