post christmas bloat
my belly is awash with homecooked food, and Chocolate Kimberlys and Tayto cheese and onion crisps. The latter two foodstuffs are both Irish only and I hold them both in the same esteem as I would a close family member. They are just as much a part of coming home as everything else.
I have been mainly eating, snoozing on the sofa and reading Russell Brand's 'My Booky Wook'. It is brilliantly written as you would expect as the man has a vocabulary that rivals the girl who approves the words in Countdown. My favourite word learnt has been 'recalcitrant' which means 'willfuly disobedient'.
I have been an avid listener to Russell's radio 2 podcasts and his 6music ones before that. It's funny when you listen to a radio show every week, especially Russells, as all he does is laugh and mess around with his mates Matt Morgan and Gee. I feel like I know each character really well just from hearing them chinwag every week so it make the book much more exciting. I also ran into Mr. Matt Morgan himself in a pub last week and had to restrain myself from asking a million questions. I will endeavour to get both Matt and Russell into Switch one sunday evening in 2008 so we can all quiz them on their depraved antics.
Chris if you are reading this please can you put a link to Russell Brand's podcast so the lovely readers have a clue what I'm talking about.
I'll be back next sunday with Grimmy to catch up. In the meantime Happy christmas everyone and three cheers for Grimmy who did an amazing job on his own last week....xxxx
