Robbie, Christian and My Real Life My Name is Earl Moment

Chris Evans | 10:01 UK time, Wednesday, 21 October 2009

They say, you should never go back, but there I was this morning returning to the place I used to call home - Number 1 Golden Square - the home of Absolute Radio nee Virgin Radio.

The lovely Christian O' Connell invited me on his show to have a chat, and the hour just whizzed by - for us at least.

Everyone's so good nowadays, Christian, George Lamb, Simon Amstell. I feel the industry is really on fire at the moment and for all the right reasons.

And you know, going back was no great shakes, I felt a deep sense of nostalgia this morning and none of it felt bad. In fact, there was a definite lightness about my shoulders - who would have thought ?

Me boook is officially at Number 2 in the best seller list by the way. I bet my old English teacher can't believe it ! Thanks everyone.

Have a great day - already at work, first official brekkie show meeting at ten o'clock absolutely right now. Exciting.

    Chris, I was so looking forward to this interview, I decided to not go to gym first thing and instead, I sat in my car to hear it so I wouldn't get interrupted. It was great. It was so interesting, for those who missed it, i'd recommend trying to catch it on the podcast. It must have been quite weird being there after everything that happened.

    Have a great day one and all

    Just in case anyone missed the end of the last blog...

    We were discussing, finding what day of the year you were born on and throwing it into a search engine to see who could come up with the best claim to fame on the day they were born.

    Please carry on, has been interesting so far.

    Morning All,

    I did it again and posted this on yesterday's blog!!

    Loved the shed chat last night!
    On the day I was born President Johnson signed an executive order abolishing the draft exemption for childless married men between the ages of 19 and 26 apparently - riveting stuff!! And Sonny and Cher were No. 1 with I Got You Babe, which obviously my mother was singing at the time!

    Happy Wednesday!
    It's true, you should never go back. Tried that with a job and an ex girlfriend - both ended unhappily (I think that's spelt wrong?!). It's never the same again.


  • Comment number 8.

    Well done on being number 2 Chris, that's not bad going for a first timer!

    I am a Friday's Child myself, but it would appear the only event on the day of my birth was an American event - The National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act signed into law by U.S. President Lyndon Johnson. Couldn't find anything else!

    Am back on here now, couldn't get on for a few days but found my way eventually. My middle man has had the dreaded flu but is back at school now. Fingers crossed for the rest of us as we're away next week in Wales for a family gathering and I don't think passing flu around is on the agenda!!!

    Think I posted this on a couple of years ago but just found it again and it made me laugh (hope it gets past the Mods, I have taken out a couple of the more risque ones!):

    Economic Models explained with cows

    SOCIALISM: You have 2 cows, and you give one to your neighbour

    COMMUNISM: You have 2 cows. The State takes both and gives you some milk.

    FASCISM: You have 2 cows. The State takes both and sells you some milk.

    NAZISM: You have 2 cows. The State takes both and shoots you.

    BUREAUCRATISM: You have 2 cows. The State takes both, shoots one, milks the other, then throws the milk away...

    TRADITIONAL CAPITALISM: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.
    Your herd multiplies, and the economy grows. You sell them and retire on
    the income.

    SURREALISM: You have two giraffes. The government requires you to take harmonica lessons

    AN AMERICAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You sell one, and force the
    other to produce the milk of four cows. Later, you hire a consultant to
    analyse why the cow has dropped dead.

    ENRON VENTURE CAPITALISM: You have two cows. You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax exemption for five cows. The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island Company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company. The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with option on one more. Sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States, leaving you with nine cows. No balance sheet provided with the
    release. The public buys your bull.

    THE ANDERSEN MODEL: You have two cows. You shred them.

    A FRENCH CORPORATION: You have two cows. You go on strike, organise a riot, and block the roads,because you want three cows.

    A JAPANESE CORPORATION: You have two cows. You redesign them so they are
    one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk.
    You then create a clever cow cartoon image called 'cowkimon' and market it worldwide.

    A GERMAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You re-engineer them so they live for 100 years, eat once a month, and milk themselves.

    AN ITALIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows, but you don't know where they
    are. You decide to have lunch.

    A RUSSIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You count them and learn you have five cows. You count them again and learn you have 42 cows. You count them again and learn you have 2 cows. You stop counting cows and open another bottle of vodka.

    A SWISS CORPORATION: You have 5000 cows. None of them belong to you. You
    charge the owners for storing them.

    A CHINESE CORPORATION: You have two cows. You have 300 people milking them. You claim that you have full employment, and high bovine productivity, and arrest the newsman who reported the real situation.

    AN INDIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You worship them.

    A BRITISH CORPORATION: You have two cows. Both are mad.

    IRAQI CORPORATION: Everyone thinks you have lots of cows. You tell them
    that you have none. No-one believes you, so they bomb you and invade your country. You still have no cows, but at least now you are
    part of a Democracy....

    AUSTRALIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. Business seems pretty good. You close the office and go for a few beers to celebrate.

    Big Chief CLP

    Good on ye, big boy . . .

    All up with the lark over here as well - sun is shining over the Lagan and all is right with the world . .

    Right - big apology here -

    INWYT arrived in the Boyle houshold on Oct 1 yet only this week I've actually got around to reading it properly . . .what with a Cookery for Men class, gym, weddings and general hoo-ha to be dealt with (usually involving LovesYoungDream), me-time has been a precious commodity of late . .

    But I have to say, its a very refreshing read so far . . honest and humble in the extreme (havent got to the later years, yet . . . )

    Have a great hump-day y'all . . .

    Great blog today. I would love to have been a fly on the wall at your meeting this morning!

    Cheryl is right - your zest for life is so infectious. In fact, you have given me a bit of a shake, and I just might tackle "those jobs" that I have been avoiding!

    And with regard to the book: you are welcome!

    MTF: had a wee look on the JLL thingy. He was 21, but he married his 13 year old cousin .... not good!

    Daisy: brilliant post! Found myself totally identifying with the Russian Corporation!

  • Comment number 21.

    Beez....shortbread way to good for th birds, just enjoy!!

    Ranty Pants alert.....

    I'm being held captive today, and possibly tomorrow.....waiting for the boy's b'day pressies to turn up.....should have been here on Monday!

    Have just phoned them and got the old 'there wasn't anyone in' line for yesterday......I was here, and as I pointed out they didn't leave a card if they did call.

    Now I've done call centre stuff, so I know the lines to use (I didn't last long, I was telling people the real reason!)......but surely if it wasn't on the van, or they ran out of time it makes more sense to say that?? why can't they just tell the truth?

    Sorry.....one of my biggest pet hates!


    p.s. the boy is talking in his sleep......it's soooooo cute!

  • Comment number 22.

    Daisy you missed out the latest addition to the cow analogy - The banker state - you have 2 cows you fatten them up you mortgage the milk production. They make you very rich. They die and you get the rest of the country to keep you in the manner to which you have become accustomed.

    So, imagine Alan Carr, add a bit of Graham Norton and a soupcon (with a soft c) of Julian Clary. All crossed with Rowan Atkinson's shop assistant in Love Actually .....

    That just about sums up the delightful fella that sold me a new hair-dryer at lunchtime.

    Camper than a row of tents at a Scouts convention. I thought he was auditioning for one of the Ugly Sisters in the local AmDram panto! It was all I could do not to yell "He's behind you" in the middle of the shop!

    Made my day that has!!

    Phewww, just pulled me head out of the oven, did I miss anything??

    Yes, its that gruelling task of oven cleaning again and the 50 quid I have saved yet again, will go towards a weeks hire of a deckchair on the promenade at Aberystwyth.

    So if you see someone in a bright yellow sou'Wester and macintosh,sitting in said deckchair, I will understand if you cross over and speed up slightly!!

    Glad you can use enclosed from postie Deevs, did it arrive in tact??

    Bit of a dab hand with the sellotape, so hopefully yes.

    Next job, before I go to work, kitchen floor, life is just one domestic thrill after another.


  • Comment number 31.


    All in one piece. Unlike the one I managed to smash to smithereens at the weekend! Thank you again x x x

    Oven cleaners: Mr Deevs has actually AGREED that I can get someone in to professionally clean our oven!! Hurrah!!!!!

    And just had a spending spree on his credit card for niece and nephews birthday prezzies - one day apart in November - ugh! You know you're getting old when their birthday/christmas wish list means absolutely nothing to you!

    OK, here's one for you .....

    I've just taken 2 decongestion tabs to see me through the afternoon and I noticed that on the packet there is Braille. Now, provided said blind person picks the packet up the right way round, they will know that it's a cold remedy they are taking. BUT..... what if they read the box upside down?? All those little bumps of Braille could give that person an altogether different set of instructions as to what to do with the enclosed pharmaceuticals!

    Howya chaps from Terra Firma once again.

    Ah Christoff yous will always be N0.1 on MY bestsellers' list yous awful eejit. And hear hear Deev, I was thinking the exact same thing as your opening comment as I read today's blog. I well remember that our CLP used to get a load of flak for 'gloating' about his success. Which rather betrayed the ignorance of those who bandied this around; on the contrary, CLp has never forgotten his roots or the contribution to his privileged lifestyle by those around him. Even at the height of his bonkersness, his attitude, to me, was always the 'Chase your dreams' one that I always try to insipre in the GD and others. There are few things more carcinogenic to the spirit than the 'Don't get ideas above your station' attitude.

    So these days and at my greatly advanced stage in life, the said GD now quotes this back to me and lifts me up with inspiration and encouragement. Hey, I swear she thinks there's NOTHING I can't do, bless her; and so now I find myself plunging in where my previous angels have feared to tread, and moving beyond most of those people who have pulled me back. You have to do this. Ergo I now have much more self-belief than I ever had, but a lifetime of conditioning is hard to overcome. It's a shame it's taken me this long to think I'm capable of anything other than being the family eejit.

    But I bet I'll still mess up the Twitter. Even though the GD and the ex-hubby say it's the perfect vehicle for me; me bein' bang in between a Twit and a Nutter.

    Ok. Mountain a washin' to do, by the crin where's me crampons.


  • Comment number 37.

    Has anyone noticed today's missive from Chris reads "Robbie, Christian and My Real Life My Name is Earl Moment" .........

    There is no mention of Robbie though???

    Assuming there was to be some musings regarding Mr Robbie Williams, can I say I started to watch it on the red button this morning and was nearly late on the school work run, will be watching again tonight me thinks!

    Bingo Travel News - A forgoot ter mention a 'ad a most interesting weekend.... a ended up Sundee night at 10.30pm..... standing in a pitch black country lane in the middle of nowhere talking ter a fully grown cow..... 100% TRUE!!!!!!!!!
    Yes az usual it waz all 'appening in the life of Bingo Star!!!!!
    A waz driving down a country lane, in rural cheshire, on me way 'ome from work when suddenly a found an escaped cow standing in the middle of the road!!!!!
    So a pulled over.... banged me 'azard lights on and goot out ter try and ge tit back inter the adjacent field before it goot 'it by a car!!!!!
    Ave noot dealt much with cows before.... well noot the four legged variety.... so a goot out and started trying ter usher it down the road..... all at the same time being watched by about a 'erd of 50 standing in the field all mooing loudly!!!!!!
    She just stoood there and loooked at me.... with a blank loook.... reminded me of going inter the 'otel for a job the other week (see joke yesterdee)!!!!
    Any way.... a made a connection... and she started ter move.... be it very slowly!!!!!
    The only problem a didn't now, know, 'ow the 'eck a waz gonna get 'er inter the field without opening the gate and all the other escaping!!!!!
    Luckily the farmer, on 'earing all the mooing late at night, arrived and took over the 'erding operation of the single cow!!!!!!!

    Ave goot anoother story involving an animal from the week before too but it's too embarressing ter tell.... so am keeping stum!!!!!
    All i'll say..... it's all 'appening dee and neet down those quiet country lanes!!!!!

    X-FACTOR - My goodneeess.... a saw the Chezza Cole and whatta performance!!!!! A don't now, know, why the press ave been aving a go at 'er!!!!
    They always build em up ter knock em down!!!!
    It's obvious The Cole can sing az she goot through the comp a few years a go ter get inter Girls Aloud!!!!!
    Give 'er a break.... and a ain't talkin' KitKats!!!!
    'er new song iz very difficult ter sing live az it's so 'ighly produced in the studio... all those sound effects and a song continually going from 'igh ter low vocals... a good tune!!!!!

    Hurrah Deev; and there's plenty out there wit your name on 'em, hun.

    I'm thinkin' OVER the knee for yourself? If ever there was an over-the-knee top bird it's the Rock Deevster. If yous feel a bit Danny La Rue, try some of the flatter heel ones, even I can get away with them. It's a bit like the rule of cleavage out, pins covered; and vice-versa.

    Incidentally, did anyone see Jo Brand on Graham Norton the other night? Had me in a right aul dilemma at first, since I have a huge girl-crush on Jo and also love Jackie Collins. Never read any of her books, like; not really my scene, but love the woman; but I staunchly refuse to watch anything with the ex-missus Andre, such is my disdain. So I watched it with me left eye shut but I have to say I felt KP seemed, just for once, a little intimidated by two REAL top birds.

    And I have to say. The last time I saw a sight like that was when me tube a black oil-paint burst in me satchel and went all over me jelly babies.

    Oh dear, that's me never goin' to Heaven. Forgive me for I am a dorty sinner with bad thoughts.

    AW Christophe, it's FAB when you can lay old ghosts to rest and it'll only ever hold good memories for you now you've extinguished the bad stuff by going back.

    Bingo.I'd be your friend if i was on FB.I'm sure you will have lots of friends soon.

    Hope everyone's had a good day.

    Hmm Hells that's a tough one. I'm thinkin' maybe they get 3 each?

    But I'd be takin' the money on that one.

    By the way Hells are yous twitterin'?

    Actually, jokin' apart, I'd HATE the responsibility of bein' anybody's phone-a-friend; just imagine the guilt if you got it wrong. Ew. Damian sarkily says I have to be his on account that I know EVERYthing in the WHOLE world, and naturally I have agreed to THAT. Because 'e'd never get past the Fastest Finger First for pickin' 'is nose.

    Just listening to Chris talking to Dermot O'Leary. I think they are both lovely.

    I agree Clodagh, If you were the friend, and gave wrong answer, it would
    be awful.Not sure i would want to do it.

    Hi MC,

    Three days is pretty good. I've adopted the old - sound so certain about it that that they daren't question you until you're long gone!



  • Comment number 83.

    Howya Rips!!

    Ah bless. Am not worthy.

    Yes indeed, Gerry Ryan; that's why I said the latter part of the show; the first part was heartbreaking. That's the thing about said show. One minute it has you disconsolate, listening to some heart-wrenching tales which have you transfixed and filled with compassion, then you'll get a caller with words of encouragement and usually offering practical help, then someone else with a tale along the same lines but with an optimistic outcome; and then, it turns on a pin-head and has you chokin' with laughter. Genius.

    Well, see you sortly; am off to refill me horn and compose a song to counteract Les Lacs de Connemara specially for them cheese-eatin' surrender-monkeys.


  • Comment number 84.

    Hiya Rips,

    Yep , or as soon as someone answers, just say , i was just going to say that.

    Hi CSN - I usually have that effect on here. Enjoy.



  • Comment number 88.

    Damn right Rips. Yous don't want to be Hee hee-in' like a big girl anywhere near Damian. He's partial to a bit of an aul rugger-bugger if yous get me drift.


  • Comment number 89.

    Evening peeps.
    Rips you weren't on the underground at Westminster station today about 2.15'ish were you??

  • Comment number 90.


    Yes, thought that was great advice, and I'm all for "feed " a cold too!

    Maltesers and Minstrels, should see me through !

    Hope you and yours are ok now


  • Comment number 91.

    Oo Crumps I think that's a bit harsh. Callin' Rips a Doppelganger, just because 'e's got ickle short legs an' a wet nose. More of a big softie aul Labrador I'd say.

    Just what the North Wales Constabulary said in their recent letter, Crumps.

    Chris, I go back regularly and don't feel nostalgic a bit, just nice to see everyone I valued. Your book so deserves to be at No. 2, it's a great, honest, interesting read - can't wait for the next one.
