Buses are weird and The Little Chris Moyles Show

Post categories:

Dom | 15:31 UK time, Wednesday, 30 August 2006

Hello blog fans

Dominic here again. Firstly, apologies for offending tree lovers with my last blog. It seems chopping down stuff didn't play well in the online eco community. So sorry again.

Anyway, this week, it's all about the joys of driving a massive patrol-gussling 4x4...

Only joking of course!

It does lead nicely onto my chosen subject area this week - I need to buy a second hand car.

This is because at the moment my wife has our only car and I'm forced to take a train home followed by a bus. I'm currently writing this at the back of said bus.

Now I don't mind buses, but in my experience people who use them are either a) very old or b) a bit odd. So I'd rather not be part of that and drive.

I'm debating what car to buy, but I don't want to spend more than about £480. This does limit my choice somewhat but hey ho, what the heck!

Right, I have to go now. Just before I do that, listen out for a special something on Friday's show.

Say no more! See you all soon. Goodbye.

PS - spotted this on the internet - it's rather good. Watch it below...

Deary me. Schalke keeper Manuel Neuer gifts Chelsea the perfect start as a cross-cum-shot from Florent Malouda squirts through his legs.

PS keep up the good work , luv the show

take the bus you lazy ba... yeah lol. London has enough cars in it already, its pointless adding another to the collection and clogging up the streets more - just think how much more expensive running a car is.

Hi Dom. Seeing as Chris has ignored (wise man) or has not read my various emails (sad as they were quite witty!), I'd just like to let you know that your jingle for the travel reports is lacking a "C". Bizarre but true so you have something like "BB new & improved..." etc.
Whilst I'm here I let you know a few of the other things I've been thinking of... (get ready!)
A few weeks ago on the Podcast, Carrie was on about a Jack Russell that got on the bus everyday to eat sausages at a pub. The photo that accompanied it was quite clearly a SHEEPDOG. Also, dogs (apart from the ones for the blind) are not allowed on buses are they? And unaccompanied? Would the driver really allow that? But I digress! Do Geordies have "Why-eye Pods"? Just a thought.
As a final point, how about Aled teaching you guys some basic Welsh? That would be fun... "Learn Welsh With Aled" or "101 things to do with your Sheep"!
That's it. All the best. Chris (from sunny Spain... just to rub it in if it's raining over there!)

Another weird video!!!i happened to be on the same website bored out of my mind when i spotted I Predict a Diet. It seems someone went to the great effort of makin a video to accompany Chris Moyles' version of the kaiser cheifs song. Just a bit odd if you ask me....might be worth a look if at the present moment you're lacking a life

Perhaps paying the bus driver 50 quid to get off the bus and hand it over to you.

Surely it would be a childhood dream of yours to be a bus driver, or to get arrested, or to get hit over the head by an old womans shopping bag.

So by stealing the bus you can do ALL THREE in just one go!!

Why does it say 'Complain about this post' after every comment? Is this a specific command?

Is Dom any relation to the 'Don't Get Done, Get Dom' TV guy? They are both bald and work for the BBC. And are called Dom.

Hi Dom,

I have to object that there are some old and odd people on buses but some of us can't drive and have to use the Bus.

I live in south London and hate getting the 122 as it has the most weirdos on it but other routes are ok.

The 89, P4 and 484 are among my favourites.

Looking forward to your next post.
