Calling out around the World…

Yet another woefully incorrect answer on ‘Pointless’ yesterday.  Given the category ‘Any UK Top 40 chart single by George Michael prior to 2011’ the only song they could categorically say was (ahem) correct was….  “that duet he did with Elton John – Dancing in the Street”


Now if that isn’t an image we’d all like to think of before we go to sleep at night then I don’t know what is. 

At this stage I would usually include some kind of doctored image cobbled together on photoshop of old George & Big Elt triping the light fantastic gaily through the streets of Hampstead, possibly on their way for a stroll on the Heath.  However with SOPA & PIPA on the rise I’d better not in case I get WordPress shut down!



Feeling a little underappreciated TBH but at least I’m still alive

All hail to Drew & Lloyd of ‘Pointless‘ fame for gaining their own appreciation page on Farcebook (nothing to do with me, although I did think about it). 

Please tell me though that Lloyd (who clearly wasn’t in our recent KS2 lesson on internet security safety, but perhaps should have been) only has 852 friends since he was on the show and not before.!/profile.php?id=556632919&sk=wall

I don’t think I’ve even met 852 people in my life!

Loving that fact that today’s episode had, at one point, at least 2 sets of comedy characters from  the French & Saunders Show’.  Brilliant!   I love that glint in Alexander Armstrong’s eye (which we all know means; “Not a feckin hope in hell pal” when he says “Let’s see if it’s up there shall we?”


It also came to pass in a discussion recently that is nothing to do with ‘Pointless’ at all, that apparently the average woman has slept with 6 men in her life.  

The number 27 was flouted in this discussion by persons who shall remain nameless (it wasn’t me FYI).  I am nothing if not totally average!   I counted up and even if you count missed opportunities, near misses,  or partners I’m aware I could have had but turned down for a variety of reasons, varying from shallow aesthetics to crippling self-doubt, preoccupation with shame issues and a massive body complex, I still only could have managed 13!

Perhaps I should have got out more, or drunk more, or taken more drugs (or less maybe). 

With my luck I’ll still probably die of cervical cancer or a latent dose of something or other lurking beneath my undercarriage for the last 22 years.

Speaking of death.. Good news… Princess Diana’s ghost has been spotted in a stained glass window in a Glaswegian church.  After all – it’s the first place I’d think of for Lady Di to visit on a day trip back to the here and now.  FFS!


TBH I think her afterlife might be better spent floating round the Pont de l’Alma in Paris whispering “Clunk Click Every Trip” at passing Fiat Unos.

Who am I?   Louie Spence?    That teacher bird from ‘Fame’?    Johnny Castle?  FFS!

Ga Gung Ga Gung Ga Gung
Loving todays episode of ‘Pointless’.  How PC of the Beeb to show an Inclusion & Diversity Special.  Lloyd & Drew?  Holy Moly!  Here’s hoping that on Monday they get categories along the lines of: Folk Singers, styles of courderoy trousers or the Norwegian Leather Industry.   And as for the dude who said ‘Oliver’ was an Oscar Wilde play!   Feckin heck!
