Still Here

Well another xmas bites the dust. Managed to take in a fair few movies

Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban - Usual carry on
Chronicles of Riddick - Not bad, enjoyable
Miracle - Good show but fell asleep
Love Actually - Good show, seen it in the flicks but it was the first movie to get a premiere in my cinema, full house it was too!
Kilnaskully - Watched the whole series on DVD, very good......Go on the Dan
Bo-Selecta - Season 3 and Ho, Ho, Ho Selecta - Excellent as always

So thats it. Might take in some more later on. Sick of food and drink at this stage. My alcohol intake has been very low (thankfully) but Ive made up for it in other ways.

Like a child I was up at six on Xmas morning and dragged herself up in the process. After opening presents and getting some sleep twas off visiting till 1, and then the onslaught of food and drink (kinda) began. Xmas telly was absolute shite, shite and even more shite, never seen it so bad.

Anyways alot done, more to do. Laters!

Christmas Week

Well we're all into the final countdown to Christmas. Do people actually give a shit about it anymore...oh you dont, OK. Its my first Xmas in the new house and its supposed to be fun, people tell me. Well there aint no dancing clowns crashing through the window. So far its a hassle to get a turkey thats not the size of a small hippo. I must admit it doesnt feel like Christmas at all at all. Then again what is Christmas supposed to feel like. Santy Claus methinks!!! and thats it. Although we bought one of the Santa Pet suits for the dog. It looks cool, but hes shitless when its on.

We're trying to nail down alot on the show for our final week before we take a few days off. Santa WILL arrive this week on the show and you dont want to miss that, and of course we will be having the second celebrity christmas throughout the week. You'll never know who might drop by.

My christmas shopping is 47% done (dont ask how I got 47%) and the only chance Im going to get to do the rest of it is Xmas eve. Great no lie in this Friday. Im planning on being in town by 9am and out of it by 11am. Most of the stores say they'll close by 5.30 / 6, but by that time some of the staff are shagging each other on the counter and are closed up. So get in there early. My plans for the Christmas day are to visit the families in the morning and be home by 11 ish and cook up the turkey and whatever else. Stuffed by 3 and constipated by 3.15. Of course the other christmas day tradition is to watch shit loads of TV. Well there is SHIT loads on alright. Nothing much. A day of Jamie Oliver on UK Food. Might be good for an hour. Hopefully he'll be cooking a turkey. Then by 7pm its time for a turkey sandwich, great!

Well now is right. I havent been on here in quite a while. Ive been really busy with work and of course that feckin christmas thing thats going on. I did manage to take in 4 hours of the extended edition of Return of the King last week, wow really added to the movie. Tomorrow morning Im off to review Lemony Snicket, which Ive been waiting for ages for. Then the ol Red Xmas party Friday night.

Last night was a late one, didnt get home till quite late, after 3 to be precise. Working on an ol Santa sketch. Im sure most of you remember it from last year when we had Psycho Santa.

Xmas carry on

Well, we got around to it on Saturday afternoon. Bought a feckin big ol Christmas tree. We had to hack off a bit from the top as it was too tall, and we're now out of more have to be bought over the next few days. Decorating the tree and the mess was a pain in the ass but what harm its getting there.

I must admit I have yet to get in the Xmas spirit. Probably not in the frame of mind yet as this is the first year in the new house. Hoo Haa!

Friday, December 03, 2004

Hi folks. Man its been a busy few days, been writing a new sketch for Xmas and its taking longer than I thought. Steve Guttenberg (Mahoney from Police Academy amongst many other movies) on next week, Keith Barry, Terri Irwin and god only knows what else. So its looking to be a helluva windup towards Xmas.

One of the stranger things to ever happen on air, happened last night. Well besides not having proper contact with VJ (tech issue, small thing but frustrated the crap outta me) this lady rang in and offered to cover him in yogurt and lick it off and then........yeah theres more...straddle him. Twas truly bizarre, but very entertaining judging by all the texts from people after she got off the air.

The weekend is here...thank god!!!!! Granted Ill be writing for a bit of it. For the rest of it, Christmas tree buying...........first time for everything I suppose. First Xmas in the new house, first time to buy a Xmas tree etc.etc.etc.etc............................etc.etc.

I robot will be on sale later on, so no doubt more money spent on DVDs :) Thats about it really................So I should drop by over the weekend!!!!
