Absolutely Fabulous

Thursday, December 29th, 2005

Yesterday, I ate a bit of banana. This is highly unusual – I can’t stand bananas. Then I had some peanut butter, again – something I’m not usually that keen on. Then I had a bit of banana with some peanut butter smeared on it – double whammy! And I have to admit that it […]

Hit Music

Tuesday, December 27th, 2005

Have you voted yet? What am I talking about? My Review of the Year 2005 CD of course! And in a way of prompting/reminding you to send me YOUR five favourite tunes of the year, I’m taking the seasonal break to delve deep into my musical mind, and present my five favourite choons – the […]

I wouldn’t normally do this kind of thing …

Sunday, December 25th, 2005

… but it is christmas day, one on which I’m having to work, and I’m in the mood to do a sort of ‘hourly update’ thing. And thus … [08.00] I’m awake, which is annoying. Half an hour before I’d set my alarm to go off. Also annoying is the fact that I still feel […]


Saturday, December 24th, 2005

Final day of pre-christmas shopping then, although mainly it was to get some food in, and so – rather marvellously – I was one of the first few people through the doors of my local Sainsburys when it opened this morning. I whizzed round the almost empty aisles, congratulating myself heartily for not leaving it […]

Red Letter Day

Friday, December 23rd, 2005

Calm down … don’t get too excited, but the ticker is back! Which ticker? This one of course (Scroll down to the 5th May) which sits along the top edge of Studio 1, glowing its message out to all the southbound drivers and pedestrians of Wood Lane. It cost about �25,000 of your license fee […]

The shortest day, and the longest week

Wednesday, December 21st, 2005

Well here we go, it’s all on the up from here … the shortest day has arrived which means that even though you’ll notice it too late to avoid getting SAD in about mid-February, the daylight hours are actually technically getting longer from this point on, and just think – only 9 weeks until the […]

My Christmas 2005

Sunday, December 18th, 2005

Right! I’m there – at last! This time next week it will be Christmas day, and I am at last in ‘Christmas mode’. I have bought presents, cards, wrapping paper, came back, played Christmas tunes, wrapped presents – and even hung up a wreath on my front door. I’m not quite going as far as […]

Review of the Year 2005 : Your votes please!

Thursday, December 15th, 2005

So here we go then boys and girls, it’s done, it’s here, and it’s available to download. Actually, some lucky (!) people will be getting CD’s in the post from me – the equivalent of a christmas card from me this year, but if you’re not one of those, or you simply can’t be bothered […]

Today’s …

Sunday, December 11th, 2005

Today’s Confession: I think I might be developing a liking for James Blunt. Hush that shrill! He was on TV at the weekend with an acoustic set that he’d recorded here at work – “James Blunt at the BBC”, and I found myself getting really into it – especially a cover of the classic tune […]

Signs that it must be Christmas

Friday, December 9th, 2005

I saw the strangest thing on TV last night – or rather, it’s not that strange when you think about it but the first time you see it, it makes you think “Eh! What?”. Getting out of nightshifts and back into day mode is never easy, and so I’ve been up at 2, 3 and […]

Bling Bling Merrily on High ’05

Wednesday, December 7th, 2005

The BBC Sports Personality Of The Year award is the weekend – Sunday to be precise, when I’m in at work – meaning that there’ll be lots of stalking opportunities of all the famous sportsmen and women in the building. I’m kidding! (obviously), but it does make me laugh when I see that someone has […]

Micro Pod

Tuesday, December 6th, 2005

“That’s like Microsoft selling iPods isn’t it?” wrote Hywel in the previous comments. Couldn’t resist digging this out again, which has down the rounds before I know, but still makes me smile … This is of course stolen from the long running and excellent iPod site at which hosts a whole gallery of weird […]
