Jermaine Jenas saying yesterday on the BBC website saying that playing all those games over Xmas means you are constantly in pain.Then adding you had to watch what you ate,getting enough sleep and doing more gym work rather than time out on the training field. Really??

I was listening to a podcast where the comedian Milton Jones went to Uganda where he went to visit a school for former child soldiers who were kidnapped from school and forced to fight and when they returned to their homes most of their familly had been killed and the community did not accept them back as they had been forced to kill people.

Thats painful Jermaine, not running around a football pitch for 90 minutes three times in a week earning shed loads of money then going back to your homes and spending thousands of pounds on things like clothes and making me take pity on you because you were not allowed to have a xmas dinner.

I am currently "resting", however my other half is still working. Most nights she announces she has set her alarm ( like I give a flying one, or indeed need one as I wake up early). When the alarm goes off, she eventually stops it, and then goes back to sleep.

Not the best is it? Fascinating how words surface in terms of usage, spread and then sink without trace. Wouldn't be too upset if this one spent more time with Davy Jones (the one with the locker, not the Monkee ..... although.....).

Some re-surface. Cool is a good example. Hip in the 60's, not so much in the 70's? but reborn in the modern 20's.

What is a shark tank, other than something you can store a shark in.

not had any Geico spam, although when I had hooky US stream, they were advertised by Max Branning from Eastenders.

Shark Tank is a USA Dragons den. I keep getting emails about shite that was "fought over by the sharks" Kohl's cash is another and Liberty Insurance. They keep getting through Googles Spam filters. Nasty Links on them. Report and move on is all I do

Twiggy 05-01-2022 02:02 PM

With Google's help...it seems to means falling arse over tit or wasted/knackered...but I also have no idea how it's used. My personal word hate at the moment is " longing" as in I'm not longing you"..( I'm not putting you off").

It's a message my daughter received from a prospective husband..which immediately gave me a less than favourable impression. Is longing actually a cool word to be used by a 30 something man?

My lad & I are doing the 92. We had tickets for games at Wycombe, Forest Green & Everton before Christmas - all postponed due to Covid.

Wycombe & Forest Green have already refunded me the costs of the tickets. Everton say that 'a member of the Fan Services team will respond to you within 28 working days to ensure we can gather as much information as possible relating to your query'

Maybe, the Nectar app tells me every week that if I manage to find a pint in J Sainsburys i'll get 40 points but i've not seen one since about October.

Hedgehog 06-01-2022 05:57 PM

I went to the supermarket yesterday morning. A lot of empty shelves.

Also a lot of boxes of stuff just sitting on the floor waiting to be put onto shelves. I can only assume it is due to COVID depleted distribution services and market shelf stackers.

BTW, this doesn't annoy me, just sort of following up on some posts above.

Problem is that the FCA hammer the company and them if it isn't done. Yet, despite that look at the fines handed out to HSBC and Lloyds relatively recently and how they allowed money laundering to happen - one example large amounts of cash accepted in black bin bags, so something isn't right.

Blimey, you're a bit young to have an Avenger. Mine was from 1973 and I got rid of it in about 1993. It was an amazing car, built like a tank but it had started to rot in places. You could see the road through the floor when driving. Mine was a reddish-orange colour. Might have been called flame red. I think that they generally came in the colour of your car or mine or at least they were the most popular.

Yeah, it was my next door neighbour's. Me/my Dad bought it off him in about 1988 - it was 15 years old & it had done 16k miles.:D

I wrote it off in an M6 blow out on the way to Anfield in 1991 but my Dad had it back on the road about a week later. Used to call it 'The Blue Flash' :p

No it is is utter utter utter utter shite. I can’t honestly explain how shite it is and how unfunny it is. I recon they are either bringing in an audience that is hand picked based around their ability to not be able to tie shoe laces or they are drugging them.

Along similar lines I had a white Mk I Cortina. One day I went to the parts department at Bristol Street Motors in Bromley for some reason.

When I came out I got back in my car, started the engine, and suddenly noticed a cushion on the passenger seat... funny, I think to myself. Took a bit better look around and realized it wasn't my white Ford Cortina. Mine was a couple of cars down the street.

Pretty embarrassing, but I don't think anybody saw me!

The audience are actually CGI-generated and the laughter is canned. Even though it is free, the press gangs were still unable to muster up any interest.

I saw him interviewed once. He was explaining that real Irish mammies would never laugh at themselves if the part was played by a woman. I sort of get that, but that is literally the only comic device in the whole sorry shitshow. A 30 second end of the pier sketch at best, stretched out for over 10 years. Desperate.

Do you work for Metro Bank by any chance?
They do that every month. 4 mind numbing irrelevant non role specific learning written by a 4 year old.

How can a TV series annoy you? Wouldn’t you just, erm, not watch it?

I agree, it does seem to be a little far fetched as to how the universe came into existence

Only one I'd give a tick to would be Grace and Frankie out of that lot.

Last short TV comedy series that made me LOL was Wellington Paranormal... The NZ police spoof thing. Oh Afterlife was really good.


Back on track, Whats bloody annoyed me recently and still is, is the fact they've built a 19 Storey Building up the road from me, right in front of our local Mobile Phone Tower.... hence I have to go outside to make a clear phone call now after years of having a very good signal here.

Hopefully they put the tower on top of the new building.

Costs 350 AUD or more to get a signal booster for the home dammit.

All of them. I think he just googled 'comedy series' and cut and pasted.

Plus Gold has turned into a grumpy old git. Probably hung around with me too much :D

I find I never lose gloves when they are attached to my hands. One can only assume you were not waring them at the time young man. Which in turn begs the question why you had them on your person. Sorry to quiz you so thoroughly on the point.

It is fair point you raise and I accept I am the only one to blame.

My story is....

I left my home this morning, it was cold and a sleeting and a snowing, to make the short 10 minute walk to my local Co-Op to get cigs.. I had my gloves on throughout, having bought the cigs (and table water crackers and blueberry muffins) I left the store.

I was about to embark on my 12 minute walk home(it is an uphill return journey) when I saw a taxi sat outside giving me the eye.. 2 mins and home or 12 minutes in the cold accompanied by sleet and snow?

I took the gloves off when the driver arrived at my address to fish out from my pocket the fare.....

I owe you a pint Rich, have just retrieved the sodden glove from the road in almost the exact spot I exited the taxi.

Offer of pint gladly accepted.

A possible solution is to try the old solution of one glove each end of a piece of elastic round the neck and down the sleeves. It worked for me 60 years ago.

We found some of those not long ago that we used to have for the kids. Actually brought a tear to my eye. We’ve kept them for the grandkids :D
