The book has gone people...

Chris Evans | 16:05 UK time, Thursday, 27 August 2009

...no more changes, no more anything. It's at the printers, it's being printed, it will be ready to rock into the warehouses in a fortnight and be available soon after to pass over on the way to the Ant n Dec offering. Ha ha.

Had a million ideas after meeting up with Will last night and was ready to rock this morning but had a camera crew around from the Saturday Telegraph magazine so had to not eat instead as well as have an emergency work out to shed whatever adipose was willing to leave my body in time for the shoot at midday.

The timing of the workout was crucial because it also had to be in enough time for me not to have a red puffy face afterwards.

All very panicky - the best thing to do I suppose is to just lead a healthy life in the first place so I don't have to put myself through this mangle every time someone wants to take a snapshot of me vizog.

Soon I will be diffuse once again just like the old days. Well maybe not - it's just that I had a deal with myself to use the word diffuse as it came up in the crossie last night.

Alright now I can eat. Let me at that fridge.

    ARF for one and all on the blog has to be All you need is love - a great rousing beginning to the show

    luv

    Failing that Christophe please play Blackbird as start of ARF for my son and daughter-in-law who have been married a whole month today!! My son sings it often and did so at their reception xx

  • Comment number 14.

    Chris,

    You are really too hard on yourself - I think you are looking the best you have ever looked. I see a lovely guy - a happy man, who is in love, and is loved by his wife, so much. I do believe that when Tash blogged here, she said she couldn't live without you. Can't say better than that!

    So, the book is done and dusted. Just relax and let us do the rest, i.e. put you on the top of the best sellers' list!

    Mike: welcome to the blog - you will love it here. Thought your post was excellent!

    Billie: (from previous blog) sorry, I was at the Post Office, fighting for my life with a new ticket system! But, I know from experience that it's a weird feeling when you send a comment and absolutely no-one replies! It just works out that way sometimes, honestly!

    Yo CLP Dude And Yo Ter ALL Blog Dudes....

    Bingo Star ere....

    CLP - Make Up!!!!!!!!!!!! 'ow many years ave yer been on TV???? AYE?????
    And yuv still noot learned the secret of all the male gods of tv!!!!!!
    In fact a getta little feeling Wrightie might enhance 'imself for the R2 wemcam!!!!!!!!
    CLP boy.... remember the Bingo Star advice and am sure that all tv make up artists would say this.... 'if yer a bloke, ter appear on TV... yuv gotta take abit of a leaf outta the rule boook of male TVs who don't appear on tv.... aka use abitta make up ter enhance ones areas!!!!!!'
    No need ter wear womens attire though.... thankfully!!!!!
    Noot that ave goot anything against womens clothes - no offence ter all female bloggers or any TV bloggers who might be arooound.... but a think it's abit weird ter wear womens clothes if yer a bloke.... unless yer off tv and doing a pantomime!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ALL - Most interesting topics on the Matty Barrister shoe, sorry show terdee!!!! (In for Jerr Vine again!!!)
    Firstly 'e waz discussing people/ kids clinging onter the back of trucks etc!!!!
    A remember an incident in Manchester when a waz driving me 44 tonne tanker.
    A came onter off the M60 and waz waiting at the end of the slip road waiting ter pull onter the roundabout. In fact the very same junction where a recently 'ad ter defend mesen in court for someone trying ter sue me for an accident that never 'appened!!! (some blog dudes might remember a writted about it on thiz very blog).
    A waz waiting ter pull out onter the roundabout, just about ter move off, when a noticed a group of teenagers instead of going around me rig... duck under it between the tractor unit and the tanker a waz pulling!!!!
    Absolutely mad... if i'd pulled off at speed... and they 'ad goot caught underneath... well 44 tonnes of truck..... i'd would just crush a 'uman being.... MAD!!!!!

    Az for the second article... on a more light 'earted note.... A 'ear a swingers club iz opening in a town and there's alotta fuss about it.... Don't see the problem mesen with a quality golf practice area!!!!

    GOURANGA TER ALL SWINGERS OF YER CLUBS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    PS CLP - For ARF.... 'ow about Manic Street Preachers and Motorcycle Emptineeess!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Don't say CLP, a don't give yer quality ARF recommendations ter play me small part in 'elping ter keep yer show..... LARGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    PPS All this talk of tree surgeons.... reminds me of me tree surgeon joke!!!!!!!!

  • Comment number 19.

    I sent a e-mail to the Vine show but it wasn;t read out. I saw a woman ont top of tractor loaded with Hay and was swaying from side to side. She found it very funny but there was nothing holding it all together. don't think she would of found it so funny if she toppled over and fell off on the road into an unsuspecting car. People can be very silly at times.

    Anyway loving the show Chris.

    Hi Michm

  • Comment number 22.

    cheers ChrissieSagain!

    As far photo shoots go Chris ( does he read these? hope so) i used to always love it when you appeared in the paper with your crazy ginge hairstyle bouncing outta control ,or when you turned up on tv in random clothing that looked liked you had just thrown it together,...classic! it worked ,but wouldnt for anyone else but worked for you.

    I bet theres some great photos in the book.

    As im new to this group, i feel that bingo star may be a daily blogger with lots of intresting things to say, with a intresting way of typing, takes me abit longer to read tho!

    Was Willlllllllllll on the show the other day, because i missed yesterdays and saw his picture on blog yesterday?
    peace

    Hi Chris & Everyone
    I am a first time blogger too. Been reading the blog for ages and thought I'd get involved now that I'm on maternity leave again and have more time on my hands?!?!? Wierd, thought I'd have less time with 2 babbers to run around after....
    My suggestion for Beatles All Request Friday is For No-One as it's my favourite Beatles choon, but Paperback Writer is an excellent suggestion.
    Any hoo, best get on with some washing - there's plenty of it now my little bilge is with us - she manages to spew over a wide area - how do babies do that??

    he did not need to bother he ok as he is!!!

  • Comment number 28.

    Billie: I just about escaped with my life from the Post Office. New ticket system - you get a number, mill around for a lifetime and then eventually someone serves you. Mad!

    Michmel: yep, some people are nutters. Every single morning on my way to work, I encounter at least half a dozen drivers who would appear to be fed up with life!

    Mike: I can assure you that Chris reads this blog, and he replies to it sometimes in ways that will astound you!

    Shelster: welcome. Babies are such fun, aren't they!

    Bingo: genius as always, what more can I say?!

    Right, I am off home - looking forward to washing the floors to clean up all the mud MrS dragged in this morning, five minutes before we had to leave the house!

    Everyone seems pretty cool here.
    im off work at the moment with an injured ankle after a footy match, so i got the little extra time. Have to say , i dont mind as the pain killers are good and it gives me time do talk to yourselves.

    hey Chris, if you do read this ....v.cool if you do! i have a question for ya

    Will you be doing any book signings in stores and where? maybe southampton?

    Also if so, would it be too cheeky to as you to sign my copy of "Ginger Nuts" by Howard Johnson ..aswell as "its not what you think"
    Reason being,at the time it was the only Biography i could find of you at the time ( around 6 years ago).

    ....Cheeky or Not so cheeky?

    Ah Chris, you look lovely, isn't vanity a deadly sin? (says she who blew half the house on cosmetics, creams, "product", highights, to name just a few, in the run up to the nuptials). Anyway, can't wait to read the book.X

    Thanks to everyone who sent good wishes to Boleynteen. We got her a couple of Friends DVDs (they're all in to them at the moment!) and I've given her some clothes money like you Debs - she's into charity-shop surfing (sorry, vintage!) so a little goes a long way. However sh'e still out with her mates so she doesn't know yet. And we're having champers tonight, pink, and her favourite meal, spaghetti carbonara, while we watch The Full Monty!

    Welcome to the newbies, and glad you found your way to the NEW BLOG Billie! Hi Chrissie and Beezer and all others. This blog is truly lovely.

    Chris - I read the book ginger-nuts as like Mike (and freak or unique) as I wanted to hear all about it. Can't wait for the 'real deal' on Oct 1st. Good to see Wiiiillll yesterday too.

    Ah well Christoff dear heart, don't diffuse yourself too thinly bless you. Keep enough back for your little chap and your lovely missus, they-and you-deserve that.

    And for goodness' sake stop fussin' about your lack of perfection. None of us is. And the person who thinks he or she is, is the person furthest away.

    Ooo. I'm 'ard.

    Any road up. Enough a bein' nice. Greetings from a warm but blustery Dublin; have been chargin' round like the proverbial blue a**ed fly since silly o'clock this morning and shall be doing so all weekend. Am a bit diffuse meself at the minute. Or should that be profuse. Or obtuse. Or puce. Yep, puce. Face like a red mullet, you think you've got problems, Lambie Pie.

    Can't make up me mind re. ARF; Octopus' Garden still gets a vote.

    But maybe, from over t' Irish Sea,

    PS. I love You?

    Or better still...

    Paperback Writer?..

    Hurrah.

    Another good day. it's so weird (oh dear tried that 3 times!) being en France & yet watching English TV and being able to blog!! I have just whizzed through so can't send personal responses but great to see what everyone is up to.
    Can I just ask ( cos obviously missed it) why Beatles ARF? (grew up with Beatles!!)

    Puff - R2 are having a Beatles Bank Holiday Weekend and ARF is an all Beatles affair.

    Deevs, with a new dress!
