And Then Exciting TV...

I’ve been glued to the TV watching the reporting of the local elections. You to? Yes? There really are other old folk out there as sad as wot I be then? Tell you what, if nothing else, it shows how little they have to broadcast if they make something as mundane as this into something that’s just rolling and rolling and rolling.

It does, however, make a break for me from my other exciting hobby of noting down the registration numbers of all the busses I see. Hay, that’s not as easy as it sounds as I also have to make a notation against each number so as  to differentiate between the number belonging to coaches or double-decker{‘}s, okay? {My spell chequer insisted on having one of they hateful little sticky-down tadpole lookin’ thingies between the ‘r’ and the ‘s’. We’ve - there’s another – and another – been here many times before. Is it ‘decker is’? The decker belonging to? English grammar and punctuation. Don’ you just love it? Something else to explore in detail, yeah, right, this afternoon.}

In other media news, and please don’t say I didn’t warn you, there was a bit on the BBC local radio this morning, ahead of the promised hot bit of weather we may get, saying that young ladies shouldn’t think about getting a tan at all owing to the ‘alarming’ rise in skin cancer amongst the young, but should only go out lathered in sun block and wearing long sleeved baggy tops and hats with really big floppy-down brims. Oh, and sun glasses. We’re getting there eh? More nudge, nudge or wot?

You then need to get over to Oldrighty and check out the photo, heading the article, of the  man supposedly in charge of our country. Does that not scare you? Please tell me it’s been Photo-shopped. Please.
