Strictly 2014

Posted: Yesterday at 13:55

I'd like to see either Caroline or Frankie win.

Also, why was there no demonstration show dance this year?  That's one of the very best things on strictly that I look forward to - last year I had to watch it twice as it was so incredible.

I agree that Charleston is a genre of it's own and frankly it's my most favourite dance, followed a close second by the jive (which I note, with sadness, is not a dance to feature in the final).  I reckon if Caroline nails her Charleston again, she'll win - a brave statement, but just putting it out there.

Can't wait to see the show dances - hope they are spectacular.

Question Time's exciting tonight.

I usually love watching question time, but last night's was a pile of shite and I had to admit defeat and turn it off. 

Why on earth Russell Brand was on there is totally beyond me - I mean he's a two bit gobby comedian who adds nothing of use or significance!!  Utter numpty made himself look really dim.

Cool, lucky you Chomski - I'd love to go!! 

I really do think it was the right result - everyone has had a poor cha cha - it's a crap dance at the end of the day, as is the rumba, it's a shame she's out but I guess that's the luck of the draw and even a dancer as good as Pixie is couldn't make a cha cha look good.

Instead of talking about destroying badly behaved dogs carte blanche, try discussing making owners go to dog training classes with their hounds.  Because ultimately its not the dogs who are at fault


Beth Roberts wrote (see)

For dogs, I would imagine they only chase runners as they are 'running' - it's an instinct thing - prey generally runs away......


Er...yes it is the dogs fault, it's their natural instinct. We eradicated natural wolves in this country hundreds of years ago because they were dangerous and replaced them with man made ones - just as dangerous.


There's no such thing as canine eugenics!

Errr no it's not Lardarse - it's the owner who lets the dog chase that is at fault, not the dog.  Stop trolling off logical knowledgable comments.

Nope didn't see it coming either, but I do think it was Pixie's worst dance and based on the other performances on Saturday it was the right result, she just wasn't as good as everyone else. 


Xmas party

Posted: 03/12/2014 at 12:54

Our works party is a bit weird - it starts at midday with a meal and then there's karaoke and a disco which finishes at 5pm.  It's just odd having a disco in the day time. 

Normally I don't go, but this year I don't have enough days holiday left to be off, so I'm going under duress.  It's crap and I hate watching the female sales reps basically whore themselves out for a free drink from a's embarrassing and degrading to women in general!!  So, I'm not dressing up (you should see some of the dogs dinners there), I'm going in my suit like all of the male members of staff do and then I'm shooting off early to meet the other half at a swanky hotel I have booked and a night out round the chrimbo markets!  At least the evening out after the staff party will be enjoyable.............

For me, most of the dances were a bit lacklustre this week.  The only one which made me go 'wow' was Caroline's Charleston - it was fabulous.

Poor Jake had a mare - but really...???  Zorba the Greek for an Argentine Tango.....who comes up with this stuff and what were they thinking? It was a travesty.  I actually thought they would be in the bottom two with Sunetra.

Simon's waltz was nice, it was tidy and his posture was good - I think it's harder for the male celebs as they have to lead, so although Frankie was moaning that she waltzed in week one, she's really only got to look pretty and let Kevin lead her.

The group waltz will be interesting, mainly from a floor craft perspective - will it spam their heads??

Hoping that all of the other dances will be better on Saturday too, as to be honest, the best part of week 10 was Riverdance in the results show - now they really did make me go wow!!!

It's frankly embarrassing!!  The tesco down the road from where I work was closed by the police this morning as a woman was injured when a TV fell on her - apparently she was fighting over it with someone else!!!!!!!! 

Muppets and numpties, the lot of them!!  Reminds me why I avoid the shops at all costs.
