Yes, I think so...

But first, notes on scoring - Correct letters are multiplied by the number of instances.  Therefore, scores would have been:

Kilman O x3 (30pts)
Teatime S x0 (-5)
Teatime T x4 (40pts)

Totals
Teatime: 35
Kilman: 30

Now for my guess at the solution -
Don't talk to me about life.

If correct, that would add 160 points to my score (20 for solving + 10 for each remaining blank)

Well, you guessed right, so whatever scores you said were the right ones :P

We could keep total scores, I guess, but I don't suppose any of us care who wins all that much.

Anyway, you're up.

Someone else can keep a running total if they want to, but I suspect you are right in no one caring all that much.

Need to make this a relatively easy one (I think).  Going out of town soon to visit the Vogons mentioned elsewhere, with whom, fortunately, we will not be spending Towel Day.  Internet service there is as speedy as Vogon bureaucracy.

Is it breaking the rules to have two sentences?
