A pyjama-ed blog today in reaction to the hurried mornings of Tuesday and Wednesday. I can take it easy till Denzil Washington wants me to interview him at 2pm. He knows I'm busy and can't give him that long but he knows he has to fit in with the Drivetime schedule. I know he's oscar nominated again but that doesn't mean his 3 word Thursday can jump to the head of the queue-oh no. He might offer 'watch my movie' or 'need another oscar' but that can wait behind 'zumba class tonight' and 'eaten more cake'. He knows the rules, hopefully I won't need to explain them to him again. Hollywood eh?


Book club is back! The first choice of the 2013 is Rubberneckers by Belinda Bauer, a splendid thriller and you can read more on this site and download a free section to sample. Belinda on the show on the 28th January.


Today we need your oldies please on 30 YEARS OF BREAKFAST TV. Remarkably I think, the best morning show that the UK produced was that first one with Frank Bough, Selina Scott, Russel Grant et al. They got it right first time! TVAM and everything else since has never quite matched that show and we've never made anything to match what the Americans manage everyday. Anyway radio is still the only place to be of a morning (or any other time of day) and breakfast tv has never overtaken the importance of the breakfast radio shows. But breakfast tv tunes please for tonight's show...


Nige is doing a haggis in something or other and I might join Sally in her veggie option. Have a robust and sturdy Thursday. See you after 5.

    CE's comment this morning on James Arthur - "Why sing a song when you can moan it?" - made me chuckle

    Good morning all - no snow yet but it is very grey ad the sky looks 'heavy' - could be soon..........

    Florence - no need to apologise for the misnaming by the DT Lord! It just amused me that it happened when I was checking where the mentions came from - usually I'd have been none the wiser!
    Love the photos of the dogs and the cup cake - would be a shame to eat it!

    Oh, the weather outside is frightful.
    But the fire is so delightful,
    But since we've a place to go,

    OH NOT SNOW, OH NOT SNOW, OH NOT SNOW!!!

    Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

    I was up late last evening baking mince pies and its turkey for Sunday dinner.

    Crackers?

    Yeah!

    Happy Days :)

    Especially for Amelia, a picture of my dogs in the corn stubble a few months ago.

    #105 Jilly - am loving the adverb 'Quiz Mistressity' - or is the phrase an abstract noun?
    *ponders*

    Had a fine evening, thanks all. Thought folks might be scared off by the forecast of proper snow [to be honest it's been very non-snowy and non-dramatic here in S Wilts all week] but there were plenty of punters just yearning to have their brain cells stretched by Pub factoids and trivia. Enjoyed myself thoroughly and all the better for not having too much in way of alcoholic drinkage.


    Gazza - the answers are The Nags Head & 1545 [you'll have to work out why and how that can be the answer] x

    Am extremely entertained by mensh mix-ups and stunt doubles. And the bass baritone Umming.

    See y'all tomorrow. I have, potentially, a ... day off! Would love an ARFO - s'been AGES since I had one of those them things ...


    :^)
