A salutary reminder.

Yes, my fellow Brits, we are very crap at footie, but who cares about that when we live on what is possibly (still) the coolest lump of stone on this planet? Oh yes, my babies, for we have Time Lords and they rock!

We also have NEW! Top Gear and Reliant Robins! Oh good gracious me, I thought I was going to die, if not of suffocation then the massive haemorrhaging caused by the lolz - And new IT Crowd! and Rev starting tonight. It is, indeed, good to be alive. If only it would rain, just a bit (I know, I know, I'm never satisfied, me but my rain barrel is down to its last smelly dregs and there's only so much you can do with a watering can and a bit of leaky hose that was bought in 1972).

Yes! Oh YES!

Fry and Laurie reunited!

My current level of squee could crack glass and end wars  it is so very mighty. ::nods:: I just wish it was a proper show, you know, of the old type. I'd swap any proper Fry and Laurie one-off special for every episode made of House or (bloody) Kingdom (a pox on both).

Any chance of getting myself buried in a glacier

Yes, I am absurdly excited ::see icon:: (that's my excited face)

Someone please tell me this deeply pleasing vid is real and that I'm not hallucinating (for that would break my heart).

The internets. They burn...!

Dara O'Briain is currently tweeting to Ed Byrne about some slashfic he's been sent featuring the two of them.

"Ed threw his cigarette down and stubbed it out with his foot, his eyes leaving Dara, just for a second. Only a second, though"

I'm not posting the link. It's really poorly written, loads of clumsy "Irish" references e.g. "Looking shyly up from his pint of Guinness..."

And I find myself wondering, who amongst you is responsible for this outrage against taste and decency? No one's going home till the culprit owns up.

@daraobriain and @edbyrnecomedian - if you're on Twitter and feel the need.

Mired in cleaning

...taking a short break, I flip on Channel 4 and the afternoon film, Warlords of Atlantis where I find Michael Gothard! in a blonde wig and gorgeous silver frock, very Mary Quant.There's an awful lot of bronzed male thigh on show all over aamof, silvery Stig-like helmits and rubber sea-monsters and James Onedin! and Doug McClure!  Yea verily, the stupid is stupid and everything is very poor indeed and yet, I cannot look away!

Highly recommended.

But I must get back to my scrubbing, these cushions won't poof themselves.

And on 'Five Minutes' just being his usual wonderful self.

Riot at the Rite and Twitter-chat and yes, I am a bit bored, since you ask.

So, farewell then Coco...

There shall be no more fun with Conan and Leno fighting like a pair of strippers over a merkin@

I shall miss you, Conan, miss your freak stilt legs and albino complexion. how can it be that we'll see you no more (until you move to Fox next year)? You know, Jonathan Ross is leaving the BBC, there will be a comedy-chat sized hole in their schedules...

NBC. Nothing But C****@

The time has finally arrived for that biggest drinking binge in history and you may now flip.

::slips away to weep::

I haven't actually seen the last one yet, hopefully it will 'arrive' sometime this morning so no spoilers plz!

@ Not mine, blame Robin Wiliams
@ Not mine, blame Adam Sandler. I can't write the word, couldn't hear it for the massive, over-extended beep though, I'm sort of guessing it might have been something rude.

I wonder if anyone else is enjoying

the simply ENORMOUS wank-fest going on over at NBC quite as much as I am? 

INFO (For the British portion of my flist): the issue is basically over who is the bigger star - the current presenter of the Tonight Show (the delightful Conan O Brien who is pure comedy gold and the reason I 'acquire' the Tonight Show on a daily basis) and the former presenter of the Tonight Show, Jay Leno (used to be OK but well past his sell-by IM oh so HO - not to mention poor Jimmy Fallon who is piggie in the middle and getting getting totally shafted). Honestly people, even if you don't watch the shows or know the personalitites involved, go google because this is a glorious wank-storm of the purest kind with both sides bitching at each other on national TV, bwahahahaha!

Believe me, it's FANDOM WANK being played out on a massive stage and I'm loving it (and so is Ricky Gervais if Wednesday's show was anything to go by). Even Larry Saunders never came close to anything half so good.

If you love wank, you'll love this. ::makes shooing gestures. waves Conan-supporter flag::

Is it my imagination

Or is the delightful Stephen Fry channelling Jeremy Clarkson a bit in this lovely sketch?

Why yes, I am having a bit of trouble getting started on some work this morning and it's mainly down to this and  this and this.

And why oh why is every damn thing worth watching on the televizzing screens tonight, all on at the same damn time, hmm? Answer me that and stay fashionable.

Well I'll admit, I'm surprised

...No one's mentioned David Tennant's astonishing performance as Russell Brand, the Ghost of Christmas Present on the Catherine Tate show last night but there you go. Anyone listen to them on Radio 2 this morning then with the Most Holy Lord Bernard of Cribbins...?

Doctor Who was pure hilarious crack, I have rarely laughed so long or hard - which was good. Our home now has a new line, 'he ate it like The Master' - only used on the dog so far but we eagerly await the chances to broaden that scope.

So, good Christmas, everyone? We still have snow. Dad is going to 'dine' (the way The Skeletor Master 'dines') with his brothers today, he's been in the bathroom a mere 2 and a half hours but still hoping to have him at at least the underpants layer before my cousin comes to get him at 3.00.

Other than that, it's been relatively calm and unfraught. I now own an ipod and a goodly pile of DVD-based comedy and a bottie of delicious hard stuff. I'm now off to make sosmix rolls, please wish me well in my culinary endeavours and have a lovely Boxing Day all!

Did anyone notice...?

I watched Micro Men again (cause I liked it so much the first time) and realised, as the cast rolled, we had The Fifth Doctor, the second Arthur Dent and - Vila Restal? I admit, I didn't notice Michael Keating while I was watching the show, but there he is, in the cast - assuming it's the same one...? Anyone know? It's not in his imdb list.

Maybe I just need to watch it again. The fight in the pub was priceless.
