So Oprah’s monkey woman got my blog stats through the roof. It was my most popular blog so far. So as mentioned at the end of the last blog this one is the Swedish lesbians fighting with sausage rolls blog. So its off to Sayers in Stockholm we go. If only eh. So Friday was another day with Charlotte and we went swimming again. Just a few beers in the evening and I watched the second episode of the remake of V which I have downloaded. I loved the original mini series back in the 1980’s. Who can forget the bit when the baby was born and it had a tongue like a lizard. Although the TV series afterwards was no were near as good. I am very impressed with the remake and look forward to the next two episodes before it takes a break for the winter olympics. It keeps to a rough storyline of the original but has a modern slant on things and the special effects are so much better. It also moves along at a faster pace for modern TV viewers. For those interested it is going to be on the sci fi channel in the UK in early 2010 and hopefully in HD. Here is a little taster clip.
So another lazy saturday as well. I had all good intentions of going to the gym today and jog around Sefton park tomorrow but a groin strain during footy has put that plan to rest. I am a doubt for the Man City game next weekend and Rafa’s injury crisis deepens. I was about to have a nice double brandy (a toast of celebration) when I heard some news yesterday but it wasnt true in the end. A misconstrued text message announcing the passing of a beloved pet has sparked a flurry of diplomatic activity in Canada. Transport Minister John Baird sent a message reading: “Thatcher has died”. Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper was soon informed that 84-year-old former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher had passed away. But it was actually Mr Baird’s beloved cat, named after his political heroine, who had died. Oh well never mind. That story reminded me of a friends father who when Mrs Thatcher resigned framed the front page of the echo and hung it in his toilet so that every time we went for a shit he could have a smile.
So I am expecting the ratings for x-factor to plummet tonight after all you die hard fans have said you are gonna boycott it as it if fixed and unreal (Ahem !!!!) On the plus side though when you watch it you can have an extra treat. The calorie counts used as the foundation for diet plans and healthy-eating guidance for the past 18 years may be wrong, a report suggests. The recommended daily intake of calories could be increased by up to 16%, a draft report by the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition said. A 16% increase would mean that adults could safely consume an extra 400 calories a day, equivalent to an average sized cheeseburger. Just need the recommended number of alcohol units that can be consumed to be increased and its a happy christmas all around. This could kick start the economy out of recession as we all grab some extra food and have a few extra bevvies. Oh come to think of it I have been doing that for the last 10 years.
Down to a mates tonight for some beers, sport and gaming. Its the modern day equivalent of cavemen going hunting. So instead of my fur and club its a purple Adidas trackie top and some wii remotes and off to Colins I go. Captain cavvvvvvvvvee mannnnnnnnnnn. Some of my views have been classed as being from the caveman era. I might one day publish my thesis entitled “The rise of women and the drop in standards of society” its a complicated theory and not as sexist as you think.
