December the 14th

Eddie Mair | 09:51 UK time, Thursday, 14 December 2006

I don't think it's my place to pass judgement on anyone. But - I though this picture was on the creepy side. Curbie Firetank supplied it...with these words...

"Eddie and Co - I thought this would make an interesting, if sinister addition to the PM "advent snapalendar" I took it last January in Finland [where it is pretty much always christmas]. Still can't decide if it's a freak of nature, or a snow'n'pine installation by some crazy Fin, well it was minus 50C [if you count the 'wind chill'] and that does things to people's minds, apparently ! Regards and Winterval greetings, Curbie."

In fact now I look at it again, I think this guy used to be freeze-framed at the end of at least one series of Star Trek.

    Nice strapline Aunt D.

    Oh dear, I'm being fiendishly fast with the posting it seems. Erm, what else to say today?

    Eddie - you could have used the word "weird" here, to good effect. If you were confident about spelling it, of course... Did you use "creepy" as a safer alternative? Is it time I went to work & stopped messing about here? YES. Oh joy unbounded. Christmas Carol, here I come. Look out, Leeds!

    Still no Wednesday newsletter, and still no apology. Well, there is one: I’m sorry to keep going on about this.

    That's too creepy for words. But really interesting picture. I'm tempted to turn it into a Christmas card for folk I'm not too keen on!

    Dr. H, I have never subscribed to the newsletter. Sometimes I catch Eddie's trailer at 4:30, which by all accounts has the same contents.

    See if you can unsubscribe, then start again. Perhaps there's a limited list and you've fallen off the bottom. Remember the counter. No, don't. Other blogs still have it, and it doesn't work there either.
