fun


>I did have my weekend fun all planned earlier but blogger as we all know wouldn’t let us play.

However to get us going here is what the Royal Wedding would have been like if the couple had gone South to Scotland’s oldest University from the Granite City of Aberdeen.

On that note all the best to my friend Kristian Chapman who is standing in the by election for the Dyce, Bucksburn and Danestone by election in Aberdeen.

Of course if it were in Aberdeen we made not have got a long enough look at Princess Beatrice’s hat and then the legend that follows would not have come to be.

People may or may not have complained that while I was running Yes! operations here in Northern Ireland there was a serious lack of gratuitous male chest exposure. Fear not my female followers and fellow gay compadres the wait is over.

The delay in this Friday fun being posted, may or may not have been due to a major c*** up by a programmer at Blogger.

>It is Children in Need tonight on BBC1 and BBC2. There was one year I recall not actually watching the programme, the reason was a valid one I was at the old BBC Scotland headquarters on Queen Margaret Road, Glasgow and my partner at the time had volunteered to help out behind the scenes.

However, to get us in the mode for this years what better way that last year’s official single, which in the best tradition of charity singles brought together a whole gumult of stars, in this case plasticine, or celluloid or computer animations. Well done to Peter Kay for coming up with the concept.

>Happy Birthday today to Allison Jannay probably best known to all my readers as Claudia Jean “C.J.” Cregg the Whitehouse Press Secretary who becomes Chief of Staff in the Bartlett administration on The West Wing.

So every birthday needs a song, or at least a little lip-synch. What do you mean you haven’t seen C.J. do the Jackal.

She also played herself in Studio 60 On the Sunset Strip as Allison Jannay star of the West Wing. Many of the stars of the new show made comment on her being C.J. which is especially funny when it comes from Timothy Busfield (Cal Shanley S60 – Danny Concannon WW) , Bradley Whitford (Danny Tripp S60 – Josh Lyman WW) or Matthew Perry (Matt Albie S60 – Joe Quincey WW).

Of course there was a lot of poker playing scenes in The West Wing so what happens when the stars actually play on TV, for real. Well Richard Schiff has an Allison Jannay shaped space on his charm bracelet.

… but diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

The news this morning that Greggs are to start selling croissants as part of its breakfast range, despite a challenging market conditions, got this song going in my head.

Of course as a former employee of Gerald Ratner I’m musing the fact that if M&S sandwiches lasted longer than some of the Ratner’s products, will Greggs next start branching out into the jewellery business. The lose of the local H. Samuel branch here in Bangor indicates that this too is currently a challenging market.

So today as David Cameron makes his closing remarks to the Conservative conference will we hear him say:

“Our country is facing tough financial times. I suggest we look at history. Bretton Woods, the gold standard, the great depression. That is why today I’m instruction Gideon, … err, I mean the Chancellor to tie sterling to the Gregg’s sausage roll standard. One pound will be the equivalent of two of Gregg’s finest.”

Or then again maybe not.

It is Google‘s twelve birthday today. But before you cheer too loudly a word of warning that means that next year the world’s leading search engine with be a teenager and we all know what they are like.

So here are the top 10 things you won’t be able to ask Google in 365 days time.

10. Restaurants – Unless it has a drive through, a bucket of chicken, or a golden arch you’ll not find it. The fast food van outside the school will get 3 Michelin stars whereas the Fat Duck will be just ‘Bleugh!’
9. Medical advice – You’ll only get the really disgusting stuff, if you looking up how to cure a common cold you’ll not find it.
8. Clothes – Will return you things you ‘wouldn’t leave the house wearing that!’ at least that is what you’d be thinking.
7. Gay – will just return anything uncool
6. Politics – BOOOORING!
5. Drink – Alcopops, Strong Cider or Buckfast. Hard luck all you wine, whisk(e)y or real ale connoisseurs
4. Education – Meh!
3. News – Very few teenagers when asked about the news will give you the latest goings on outside of X-Factor, Britain’s Got Talent or whats in Heat or Zoo. So move over Paxman it’ll all be Perez Hilton.
2. Directions – Teenagers have great fun in misdirecting motorists. Therefore Google maps will soon be inoperative.
1. Sex – Like a typical teenager it will run off in embarrassment if you are older than it. If you are fellow teen you will get misinformation or boosting of knowing more than it actually does. Therefore porn will not be searchable, unless you take your laptop under the duvet.

Now on the 27 September next year don’t say I didn’t warn you.
