BLISTERING BLUE BARNACLES!
Yes it's a good Thursday after all. The boiler works, the coffee is fresh and we awake to news of record numbers of Drivetime listeners which is a lovely thing. Thank you for being there and thank you for being here too. Clearly bloggers are the creme de la creme, the vanguard, the hardcore (that's enough praise really). When it all works it's one heck of a show and we all have a great time being on the team. I'll buy the iced gems today.
Yesterday's show was memorable for the chat with Anthony Horowitz about Holmes and Tintin (how successful does one man have to be?) but also for the confession from 'Derek'. Who lied to his wife and children to get them to move. Who might have spent the night in the garden shed. It got the biggest response of any confession for a while and we will pass on any updates we receive.
Today it's another of Nigel's 'best of...' series and he's knocking off a prize winning spaghetti carbonara after 6. We are hoping Rebecca will be back today but that depends on how she's feeling. She won't want to miss the free biscuits however.
And tunes please for the arrival of the new TINTIN movie. It's had 'paid previews' this week but has now officially opened and you heard Anthony Horowitz yesterday saying he'd been signed up to write the next one. He's another fictional crime solver of course but now we celebrate all things BELGIUM, CAPTAIN HADDOCK, SNOWY, THOMPSON AND THOMSON. And PROFESSOR CALCULUS and anything else that occurs.
Have a quiet, modest, encouraging Thursday, see you after 5.
