  1. *considers West Ham*

    I guess you haven't had a good cry in a long time.

  2. *Smiles at no 23* :0)

    I'd completely forgotten 'A Zed and Two Noughts' even though I knew I'd seen it and it was Peter Greenaway.

    imdb says its 'A post modern film about life and decay'.

    You obviously made the right decision.

  3. Frank Skinner was in hospital recently to have a small mole removed from his penis.

    He declares it will be the absolute last time he shags a mole.

  4. MJ - I had a cry when we won the play offs. Then when we survived relegation. I can only see tears of boredom for the foreseeable future.

    Kaz - The best thing about Greenaway's films is the music by Michael Nyman. Best listened to on CD.

    Murph - Yesterday he looked like he was on his way to the dentist. Maybe he's got veneereal disease.

  5. My uncle once made a pass at my mum, his wife's sister.

    Also 2, 15, 35 & 38

  6. Yes - I cry when people win I like win or when there is a standing ovation. And I saw Frank Skinner last Friday in Soho - looking a bit smug as usual. Oddly - I saw David Baddiel the day before - looking not smug but rather roly poly.

  7. Beth - The cabinets depress me even more than the triffid-like geraniums. I keep my eyes glued to the screen.

    Romo - I think I saw David Quantick today. Would David Quantick have an ipod? Frank looked really pissed off when I saw him.
