Right you fucker, I'm going to do the washing up.
Well 04 has arrived with a bit of a whimper; we had planned a quiet night in a pub with a log fire and a pool table. We got ready and left the house at twenty past eight. We were back less than five minutes later after braving blizzard conditions and wading through two inches of freezing slush. Out of our house, across the road and under the bridge only to find the fucking pub shut. We legged it back home, got changed and watched TV for the rest of the night. Jools Holland again.
We watched Withnail and I the other night (cheers Nick). It was fucking class, Richard E Grant should be the next James Bond and he should play it in the style of Withnail. "Blowfelt, you terrible cunt !"
03 was an odd year. Very busy with the shop, so it passed really quickly. Governments pushing the boundaries of piss-taking to as yet unheard of levels and TV, continuing it's downward spiral into a bottomless pit of shite aimed at the lowest common denominator. LCD is an apt name for the new telly you buy this year.
I have never really been a proponent of new years resolutions, although this year I will make a concerted effort to watch as little TV as is humanly possible. I have my OU, I have loads of books to read and at least two computers to build. Oh, and I have work and the shop to fit in somewhere.
I hope you all have a happy and healthy 04.
Chin chin !
