My point is this: I fancy a nap. In my bed. But there's washing on the line that is not yet dry. It will be if the weather holds off but chances are if I nap now the clouds will see the so very nearly dry washing and go for it. The clouds are very threatening. Why do they feel the need to do this? We all know what black clouds entail. They could just politely announce (in a John Le Mesurier voice Mr. Perkins?) 'Hello, we're here. We may rain on you shortly. We do apologise but after all that is our job.' No need for threats. Unless clouds are chavs and can't help it. Maybe they should be burberry clouds so there's no denying their true intent.
Nipped to see middle daughter Charlie after today's show. She's 14 today. She was dressed as half a chicken.
Sat next to the most fragrant chap on the bus home. Took me the whole journey to work out what the aroma was. I'm still not totally sure but I think it was Thornton's Viennese Truffles.
The clouds have obviously taken offence at my chav comment and are throwing water at the washing. Back in a mo.
During the show while a song is playing I usually have at least another 4 other songs lined up ready to go. Some sit there for the duration and still never get played. As I get towards the end of the show though and I'm trying to work out timings to get the outro music in and the news played at bang on ten these tunes are whittled down til there's just the song playing and the outro music cued up. This almost had disastrous consequences today. Razor Blade Alley (Madness) was playing, Two Wounded Bird's Midnight Wave was ready to go after, which would have took me nicely to 9:57 and 35 seconds. Perfect timing for Egyptian Reggae. BUT my Madness CD packed up on me. I'm a tad upset about that. Midnight Wave was too short to fill the gap. Thankfully I still had Pond's Giant Tortoise lined up, I was just about to save it for another day. Too ,long a song but it filled a hole so to speak. Basically all this is leading up to an apology for the calamitous end to today's show.
Oh and if anyone's questioning the inclusion of The Darkness today blame their No.1 fan JJ the shoe seller.
Hopefully Tom Harking tonight as Rovers start their Capital One Cup campaign at home to Rochdale. STOP PRESS!! I've just this very second received an email saying no goal music tonight so no Tom Harking, just cheering.
Rain's stopped. Back to the original dilemma.
