Gooooooooood evening (in a very cheesy style!) – just finished covering for Ross’ NE1’s Anthems show on NE1fm (incidentally). Show went well, lots of interaction from the listeners tonight and a fabulous show had by all (me)
I think I have an addiction to Twix chocolate bars, how nice are they? I’ve had a load of them recently, but not too many, remember – I’m loosing weight not gaining it! & I like Dr. Pepper – lots and lots and lots and lots and lots… you get the idea!
The show was good today, had some tickets to give away, gone in less then a minute after we announced em! Apart from that, the usual chaos ensued, Dan made lots of cups of tea and I kept to my rigmarole of not actually finishing a cup yet. Tis quite a bad habit, you just have to look at my desk at work, sometimes you need to shave the cup, before you can use it again. – If you leave it really long, like on a bank holiday weekend, sometimes it smells really bad!
Currently at work, I’ve got a lot of balooons about, and lots of pointless poo in my little tray thingy under my monitor for keeping little thingys in. Incidentally, I am in Manchester from Monday to Thursday of next week. I somehow get the feeling that I will be requiring my stab-proof vest, my chastity belt, a small pouch of gypsy tears, and a small, but not too small, lightly bruised banana.
For some reason I have had the urge recently, to eat a cucumber sandwich. I very much do like cucumber, especially when it is encapsulated into a sandwich containing wafer-thin lightly salted ham – in preferebly a light white bun with a little spreading of butter. I am going to make some bread in my bread maker tomorrow.
I’ve also been left the crippling task looking after someones Greenhouse. This may not appear to be a particularily difficult task, but the things that could go wrong surely outweigh the things that could go wrong. I just hope their Tomatoes do not perish under my care.
Anyway, I will be off soon to bed as I have had a long day putting up with Alistair MacDonald, and listening to him tell me about his life. I think I could summarise by simply saying, it is like a large piece of what could only appear to be blank, grey slightly moist, paper, & with that, I leave you in the trusted hands of the man they call Dan.
What a week, so busy this week I had to have a few days out! So I took Wd & Thursday off and sorted a load of stuff out that I’d been putting off for weeks – so then, you ask, what on earth has been happening this week?
I took some time out from the radio this week mainly, spent a lot of time here lately so I decided it is time to step back and let the show go on (lol) – I’m in on weekends now and occasional weeknights if I have to fix anything! That’s not mentioning the weekly Wednesday meeting which I still goto.
In other news, the Kanned Weekend is still going good, on weekends, on NE1fm. We’ve had a good pair of shows this weekend with a few people remarking about it – so as long as people are talking about it I’m a happy man.
On the VW Golf front, all is not good. I now have no passenger mirror eother – that was removed by a Transit van. I got his details but it looks like it’s going to be close to £200 for a new one.
Then there’s the rain, that caused no end of problems last night – I drove straight into this huge flood without even seeing it (rain was so heavy and my wipers were on uBer fast) – some water came in the side of the doors and did a good job at ripping some big plastic undertray off the car – it made a hell of a noise when it came off – and in the pouring rain – Ross climbed under the car and ripped it off. Sorted. I just hope that is the end of bad luck on the car front, it costs a bloody fortune to keep that thing going!
So, July 1st now – and dinner time here I come!
