Well not actually me on the telly but me on the telly as in talking about it. One day I WILL be on the telly. I’m hoping for Top Gear presenter, replacing Louise on Something for the Weekend, or maybe the new Jeremy Kyle only less exploitative of poor thick people and not a tw*t.
Anywho, I nicked this from http://deannap.tumblr.com/ Thanks!
- The Mighty Boosh
- The IT Crowd
- True Blood
Who’s your favourite character in 2?
Vince Noir. Played by Noel Fielding, my future sailor husband.
What’s your favourite episode of 4?
Well it’s got to be the more recent Street Countdown.
What’s your favourite season of 5?
I’ve read the books but I’m only on Season Two of the show at the moment. However, I predict Season Three will be my favourite beacuse Alcide comes into it. How shallow of me *sniggers and rubs thighs a la Vic Reeves*
How long have you watched 1?
When did it start? *Consults Wikipedia*…. 2006
How did you become interested in 3?
I liked her in other comedies and something about her manner makes me laugh very hard. You can follow her on Twitter too @mermhart. She’s currently writing the second series. Best scene was when she can’t cancel her gym membership and threatens to wee in the ball pool. I failed to find the clip. Brownie point for whoever can.
Who’s your favourite actor in 4?
Richard Ayoade who plays Moss. His facial expressions crack me up. He’s also Saboo in The Mighty Boosh, or for the purposes of this blogging malarkey, number 2.
Which show do you prefer? 1, 2, or 5?
Far too tough to call. I love them all in their own special way.
Which show have you seen more episodes of; 1 or 3
1 because there have been more episodes.
If you could be anyone from 4, who would you be?
I’d be Jen so I could work with Moss and Roy.
How would you kill off your favourite character in 1?
Owen was my favourite and he’s already been killed off
Would a 3/4 crossover work?
Oh yes, I’m sure it would.
Pair two characters in 1 that would make an unlikely, but strangely okay couple.
It’s pretty much anything goes at Torchwood anyway so any combo would work.
Has 5 inspired you in any way?
Yes. When I grow up I want to be a vampire and bite people.
Overall, which show has a better cast? 3 or 5?
5. True Blood, lots of fit people.
Which has better theme music, 2 or 4?
True Blood- I wanna do bad things with you!
I must go now, got some telly to watch before the IT Crowd is on the telly and before I watch True Blood Season Two Episode 3 not exactly on the telly but on this here laptop. Then I’ll sleep so I can wake up and watch some telly.

Doctor Marten’s Doctor Marten’s Doctor Marten’s Boots.
Anyone remember this on the Young Ones??
My first Docs were when I was 14 and into Grunge. Tie dye skirts, big baggy Nirvana T-shirts and of course my big Docs. Unfortunately for me they were like boats on my feet as I was (am) size 7, short and skinny. But I loved them. I even loved them despite the fact that initially I had to rub leather softener into them so they didn’t rub too much. Me and my friends all had Docs, some black, some colourful, some with funky laces. Nothing is like the ones you can get today though. I still look at them and get excited. The funky ones I would love but I use age as an excuse not to. Check these out!
About three years ago I bought some Doc Marten’s sandal/flip flops, not quite as cool as the boots. I ordered them and they didn’t arrive. A few months later my Stepdad found them behind the fence! They had delivered to my old address. Luckily they were well wrapped and they served me well. However they have been recently made redundant (‘current climate and all that!). My FitFlops have taken their place. Sorry Mr Marten but they are much more comfortable.
So maybe in the winter I will treat myself to some Docs again. Maybe these. Not until FitFlop season is over though
When I was young(er) we had an Amiga 500 and these are the games I’m going to reminisce about for your blogreading pleasure.
My whole family loved and played this game. How our joystick lasted I don’t know because for this one you really had to be speedy on that button. I would insert a joke here but it would most likely be wholly inapproriate regarding my skills with a joystick.
My Mom used to babysit for my best friend Stella and her sister and we would play this before school whilst I ate Marmite toast.
Probably the first game that I spent hours at a time on.
4) Speedball II
5) Alien Breed
My Stepdad Tom loved this one. It was very exciting!
6) Flimbo’s Quest
A bit cutesy but I loved a good platform game.
7) Ikari Warriors
Couldn’t decide between this and International Karate!
You can keep your X Boxes and Playstations, Amiga games will always be the best : )
To begin, for those of you that may not know me so well, I hate shopping, in particular, clothes shopping, and if we’re getting pedantic, shoe shopping. Despite my gender I cannot see why people would enjoy it. I like having new things like shoes but I can’t get excited about the process. Shopping in general annoys me and my gender annoys me by conforming to the idea that we should all be shopping obsessed. Don’t get me started on sales, (untidy, disordered nervous breakdown inducing horror scenes).
Anyway, after my positive experience choosing my new running shoes at the specialist running shop I was surely on a roll. Hence on Thursday I found myself toddling off to the Cloggs shop in the Bull Ring to choose some FitFlops. I’d already looked at some on their website. They promise great things and they fit well into my current ‘try and get fit and toned and eat healthy’ regime.
I had two whole staff members to help me choose. Two! Usually in shops I have to lurk around people to try to ascertain whether they actually work there or not and then embarrass myself when it turns out they are just browsing on their lunchbreak. I chose quite quickly the Rebel FitFlops. They have metal studs on them and so of course they are very me.
I was concerned that they may rub me and blister because my feet can be a bit rubbish with new shoes. However, so far so good. They are really quite comfy and yesterday my feet still did not hurt, despite giving them a pounding around Solihull and the supermarket. Now I’m just hoping that my buttocks and thighs of steel will suddenly emerge and I’ll look like Nell McAndrew, or Cheryl Cole with bigger boobs. Or just me but toned will do.
I’ve just blogged about shoes!
Week Four Monday 28th June 2010
…and so week four begins.
1) Exercise more – I have run. Like Forrest Gump. I’ve ran to see Mom and Tom and my in laws and round the block. I am trying to see how far I can go without stopping to walk. On Saturday when JB got home we went to have a walk around the lake at Coton Park near Kingsbury Water Park which was really nice despite being bitten to buggery.
On Sunday JB was at work so rather that sitting in bed watching Something for the Weekend I got up and ran to see Mom and Tom. At 9 in the morning! On a Sunday! My brother Joe was in bed (fair enough for an 18 year old) but my brother Rick had come round too as he is cycling more and was going for a ride. Me, Mom, Tom and Rick walked to Elmdon Park and then Rick went off for a bike ride. We walked all around the top of the park and did two miles. Not bad considering it was the hottest day of the year. Unfortunately the cross on the back of my Sport’s bra gave me stupid tan lines. I’m hoping to up my running and maybe think about doing another more structured sport too when I’m fitter.
2) Eat Healthier – I’m doing well on this one. I don’t really feel like I’m depriving myself and it’s good not to feel bloated from gorging myself. If anything some days I am not eating enough points because I am eating a lot of fruit and veg. I soon remedy that with a Curly Wurly and some milk though.
3) Lose weight – I have lost another 2lbs so I have lost a total of 5lb in three weeks. Not bad. Another 1lb next week and I’ll have reached my 5% goal.
My goals for the coming week are to keep at it with the running, Wii Fit when I am too tired and continue to walk rather than drive whenever possible.
Run Forrest Run.
