Morning and shit.
It’s as good an ante meridiem routine as any, I suppose…
The rain that made waterfalls on Uluru is heading our way
along with some windy wind
and the temp is still hot
It’s a toss up whether to batten down the hatches or keep the windows open
Aha here comes the rain (cue song)
Right problem solved, the windows are now closed 🤔😊💦💧💦💧
Gin and tonic and shit anyone?
Hi Xen and Fing. I’m being cool and shit.
Cool bananas and shit, Bill *clink*
We’ve been watching the film The Five Pennies, with hepcats diggin’ it daddy-o, man, yeah… 😎
Hate to admit it but I’ve been enjoying Red Bull Soapbox Derby on Dave.
Watched some of that yesterday. Always see a bit at Xmas. Good clean fun…
Worlds Strongest Man for me.
Tradition and shit.
Woke up quite happy today Llagrande and been for a wee hike in the sun and fresh farmy-poo air.
Alongside my A&E badge I now have an Unblocking Toilet* badge.
I’m such a good girl guide and I’ll soon have an armful.
*polishes halo & shit*
*With many thanks to Wendy for the bag-around-a-mop method.
Scary dancing penguins on the telly (I’m not watching) and radio 2 blaring out everywhere.
Think I’ll take y’all to my room to charge you up.
*plod plod plod*
Much more understandable why one of our party is feeling rather emotional after a big chat last night.
Strange, when folk have problems they need to share but dimwits tell them to keep it to themselves.
Quite the opposite of “Let It Go”.
Luckily vokda oiled the vocal chords.
Hot with rain and wind sounds exciting, Fings.
Not too exciting I hope.
Dogfing will prolly enjoy it.
Read back now.
Sounds like we’ve all had a fairly mixed bag of xmasness but got through.*
*Unlike George. I wonder if this was his ploy to get Last Xmas to No.1 or if he just felt really left out by the other ones who left us in 2016 …
I did snip a bit yesterday.
Said dimwit really has a go at me for being veggie. He says eeurgh to anything without meat. If I did that about meat it would be totally unacceptable behaviour.
Anyhoo, it’s curry night and the ingredients weer being discussed. The main chef has forgotten to bring the recipes.
“Recipes?” says dimwit, questioning the plural.
“Yes, there were four” was the answer.
“Okay, so that’s one veggie and …. ”
“Why do you assume there has to be just one veggie?” snips I.
“Oh there are some nice veggie curries out there” says dimwit.
“Oh? Are there?” snips I. “You seem to have an [couldn’t remember the word “aversion] … ” and then the conversation strayed on as it always does.
He’s been snappy at G the whole time too.
“I know you’re stressed about getting off* so just go.”**
**translates to f*ck off
There’s a barrel of beer with my name on it.
It’d be rude not to …
I know I’m being a grumpy bum.
I’m using CU as an outlet.
Luv y’all. Wish you were here.
It sounds like you are fully justified in grumpy bumness, sleeps.
It’s really not that hard to provide for vegetablists. Twat!
Love the banner…busiest days of the year here…and shit…
I wouln’t spend next Yule with that personage if I was you, Sleeps.
Unless, of course they’re going to leave you a wad in their will.
Fancy is getting a fire going. We have a civilised sitting room now!
Sleeps, I’ve mostly opted out of x**s, had “the day” with an old friend down here then at home only to read an email from my oldest Yorkshire bezzie that her family had taken complete advantage of her and then from you someone’s going all out to be a plain a*se. Thought it was particularly bad no dinner was saved for you and presumably the child and parents you took to A&E. Sorry, lovely but have to say I would rather stay home alone than spend time with people like that. And my neighbour has announced on FB she’s had it with x**s and taken the tree down already. So much for the season of joy and goodwill …. and shit. xx
RIP Carrie Fisher
Damn. A smart, funny, talented woman.
Loved her Chelsea Bun headphones…
loved her in many films.
(but very much loved Star Wars…still do).
Watching DVD of Leonard Cohen at the O2 in 2008.
Let’s pretend 2016 didn’t happen.
Had a look at her filmography. Have only seen about 4 films she was in – & can’t really remember much about her in them.
I remember her more as an entertaining chat show guest really.
*I actually posted – then redacted – the words “My bad?” at the end of this post, but I don’t see how it should be… 😉
If you have not seen this, rent it or Netflix, Fisher is great in it, along with John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd:
The Blues Brothers, playing the abandoned fiancee. Marvellous.
She was the same age as me. Worrying.
Although I haven’t spent half of the last thirty-five years in rehab.
She was apparently a good script doctor xen…
indeed lagrand…it is worrying, however, one could get hit by a bus as it were, so there you go.
Same thought at the same time.
Incidentally, my mother was a big Debbie Reynolds fan. She wanted to call me Carrie after DB’s new baby. And my surname’s Fisher. You can imagine how that would have played out circa 1978. ‘What’s your name?’ ‘Carrie Fisher’ ‘Yeah, right, and I’m Han Solo’
Blues Brothers is one of the few films I’ve seen her in.
No wonder she gets shoved to the back of my mind when that particular classic features the likes of Aretha, Ray & John Lee… 🙂
A boat load of great cameos in that movie xen…
haha lagrand, we have a girl working here whose name is liz hurley…
oh yes, I was named after the daughter of a Hollywood persona in the fifties…not Carrie though…
Ha, I was barely even named. Well, I was then within weeks both parents went off both names and I hated the 2nd one so the name they’ve always called me (that I remember) was derivative. Makes me really hard to find on FB etc so there’s an up-side to everything. Unless you know the derivative, obvs (which I know a few of you do here). So, for instance, throughout all of my treatment I went by one name but the v clever nurses insisted on knowing if I was called anything else in case I got ill and wouldn’t respond to the one they called me (after all these years, I respond equally, I think, to the first and the derivative of the second, never been called the 2nd official one in 55 years that I remember). I must have been in the recovery room twice though and remember neither occasion, only being quite chipper on the trolley in a sort of collecting area waiting to go back to the ward, so lord knows what they called me.
Well, I know what I’m talking about. 😉
That sounds complicated 51, but as long as you know what you’re talking about 🙂
We gave the kids three names and they get called by their middle name, so along with their last name that makes four.
I tell them it hinders identity theft when they complain about it, although that wasn’t the reason at the time.
Aah, is that the Scottish thing of “Mac or Mc something”, Inty? My husband #1 had that, all 3 of the boys had the same, the 2 girls got their mother’s clan. Which was really odd as their dad was from Trinidad and we lived in Southampton. 😉 x
When we had the first one we didn’t know if we would be able to have anymore so being the first boy in the family he got all the names, including the ‘mac’thing.
Then we had the other two so we kept it the same.
There were a lot of names that hadn’t been used.
Although they all have family names they go by the names that we picked, which are their (first) middle one and totally their own.
All Scottish background though, old names.
