Look it's that time again already and look how the advertisers let us know it

Well. I don't care if he is in the Shrek films. He's no Dame Shirley, is he?

Although hats off, the advert is very well done. It makes you wonder how much all these things cost though. Have you seen the one for perfume where Kate Winslet hugs some chap on a bridge? How many suitcases of cash did they have to show her to do that then, eh? I could of done that. Hello! Hug. Smell nice. Easy. Although I bet I wouldn't shift as many bottles as Our Kate.

Still, it's all gravy. And turkey stuffing. If you can't go just a smidgen over the top at this time of year, then when can you. Although I should point out it is still November.

And of course, how else could they have spent the cash?

(HRRRNNKK!! Warning! Guilt-inducing seasonal celeb-fest ahead!)

Look at me being all "ethical" n stuff. I've off-set this post, you know. OkayIhaven'treallythat'salie.

But don't get me wrong. I properly LOVE this time of year, and think it's no bad thing we can let loose*, have some fun, splurge a bit and buy each other nice things. And legitimately turn up to work with hangovers. And dried vomit on our shirts. And wear bits of slightly forlorn looking tinsel. But karma, peoples, karma. All things in balance.

Oh dear. I do talk a lot of w*nk sometimes.

ANYWAY. So It's gonna be a bit quite on here** for the next week. Darhlings! Parties to go to. Family to see. Drinks to attend. Guests to make a complete tit of myself in front of. Scrabble to play. And don't get me started on the shopping... because I certainly haven't.

BUT. Only for a week or so, because then there's something a bit festive, a little bit spesh, a bit shiny (maybe) happening.

Watch this space...

PS: This post made me snort tea out of my nose. In a good way.

* Sorry. It's all the satsumas.
** Probably. I mean I can't promise that if I find something to rant about I won't get happy with the keyboard.

Ms Murphy: Bonkers, but we love her

Roisin, love. You're amazing. Too few people throw legendary moves like The Robot or The Running Man into their pop videos these days.

We salute you!

I saw Su Pollard yesterday. At the station.


That is all. Carry on.

Right. I've had too much red wine in various parts of London this week to even consider going out this evening. Especially if I'm to have any kind of weekend.

So. Just about to get a takeaway...


I hope you peoples aren't using the t'internet to cheat. I really do. I would be sooooo disappointed.

Mystery Movie Quote of the Evening:

"I had just been dismissed from University after delivering a brilliant lecture on the aggressive influence of German philosophy on rock'n'roll entitled 'You, Kant, Always Get What You Want.' At 26, my academic career was over, I had never kissed a boy, and I was still sleeping with mom.".

Come on you grunters. Answers on a comment.

And a Shiney Bonus Point if you can tell me what one of the characters has hidden in their tooth....

I've been Chavved by Steve Jobs

I've just downloaded the newest version of iChoons.


My puny PhotoShop skillz aside - HELLO!?? RINGTONES? What next - "cute" trading cards? Is Apple slowly turning iTunes into some kind of second Facebook?

Humph. I'm not happy. I can't imagine Penelope Keith or Emily Blunt or Alain de Botton downloading RINGTONES, so there's an end to it. Begone, Jobs. I love you, but BEGONE I say.

Talking of which, Arsebook looks quite cool. My my. I am getting curmudgeonly in my old age.

I knew one day I would become cornered by organised religion. All they had to do was put in wurds i understands...

I have found the Wurd. And the Wurd is "HAI!"
