There’s not much in the news today other that Paul Weller (I think that’s what they said on the news, although they might have said ‘poor weather’).
All I managed to see on the news today were a load of weather presenters standing ankle-deep in snow in sub-zero temperatures just to show us what snow looks like. No doubt it irritates them more when it’s baking hot sunshine and they have to stand indoors in their suits and it makes you wonder why these great forecasters never spotted that this would happen in their career.
I suppose with all the fuss and chaos that has been caused it is easy to forget that is all because of a bit of snow, 2 atoms of hydrogen covenantly bonded to an atom of oxygen that grinds the entire country to a halt and dominates every rolling channel news.
The editor of the BBC News Channel finally said enough was enough today and he started playing clips from Barrack Obama’s Presidential Inauguration – I mean, that happened about 4 years ago for God’s sake! He must have been desperate if he put a re-run of that on the news…
One story that did catch my eye today was Prince Harry claiming that he shot at a weekly music magazine whist he was in Afghanistan – I then listened to the story again on the radio and it turned out that he shot at an enemy, not an NME (things confused me even further in terms of this story when the news reporter also talked about Harry using a ‘full magazine’ of bullets).
To be fair, the news story could have had the headline, ‘Soldier Does Things That Soldiers Do’ (or ‘I’m Really Sorry, But We’re Reporting This Even Though It Isn’t Anything To Do With The Snow’) and I suppose that it’s reassuring to see that Prince Harry is just a normal soldier and fitting in seamlessly with rest of the armed forces – although apparently getting him to keep his clothes on is said to be difficult.
Whilst Prince Harry not having any clothes on is one thing, apparently on his first day he was told to go and put his uniform on and all hell broke loose as he got confused and put his, ‘fancy dress’ military uniform on…
The exact reason for his posting to Afghanistan is slightly unknown, although it’s thought that he was only there in the first place to appear as a special guest on Ross Kemp’s next show. (Apparently Kemp’s will also be doing a new show in 2013 about his change of career where he’s going to start working as a film critic; his first assignment is to review a Leonardo Di Caprio film from the early 2000’s – it’s called Ross Kemp on Gangs… of New York…).
Additionally though, the army were forced to make special adjustments because Harry was there. One tank was modified specifically for Harry being there – it didn’t have any special armour or anything, they just had to fill it with suncream and then dispense it out of the turret to save Harry from burning more than an American flag on the streets of Syria.
Nonetheless, the mature way he’s managed to handle things has drawn many comments, The Queen said he was doing a great job; The Duke of Edinburgh said he was a credit to the country, but it was a shame he hadn’t injured more foreigners; his Dad said that he was incredibly proud of him… and Prince Charles also said a few words…
More #TweetsNowtOnTV and this time Jimbo (@JimboStudios) and (@CFishTank) spent their 14o characters tweeting all about luxuries!
Spa Day – I once went for a spa day. I bought a newspaper, a packet of chocolate fingers and a lottery ticket
Champagne – the England football team don’t drink much of this
The Ritz – is really expensive for a cracker biscuit
Holiday Home – lots of celebrities have these but Jimmy Savile had a camper van, he said it helped him feel young
Fur Coat – Animal rights campaigners don’t like these. I think it’s because they are too expensive
Motorboat – I was offered a cheap one these because the motor was broken, it’s on sale now

A Tag Heuer watch: I lost mine – I was going to look for it, but I didn’t have the time…

Chanel No. 5 – make high quality perfume – but the television programmes they show are awful
Extra thick toilet paper – some people think it’s important – although I don’t have a roll for it in my bathroom…
Offshore bank accounts – these are held by numerous wealthy people – and the dogs of football managers…
The American Express Black Card – is a credit card for wealthy people, like footballers – but John Terry hates them…
Being driven by a chauffeur: is a great luxury – as long as he isn’t drunk and heading through a tunnel in Paris
Polo: is a game played on horses – I think you have to hit a ball through a hole on a minty sweet

Things I like and wanted to share part 2!
I love this programme, but its one of them TV programmes I get into and watch religiously for a couple of months and then not bother with for a while. Not quite sure why I like it, it used to scare me to death as a kid especially the eerie music. One of the first episodes I remember watching is where someone was bludgeoned with a cricket bat, I think I was probably about 8 at the time. I know what your thinking, watching programmes like that when you were only 8 years old!! But I wasn’t always allowed to watch programmes like that at 8 years old, so when I wasnt allowed, I just put some porn on. Only joking…that wasnt until I was at least 9. (joking again). Now I have written the word “Porn” in the same paragraph as Midsomer murders I’m sure that this webpage will get some hits from some fans who are searching for “Midsomer Murder Porn”. Or even worse “Murder Porn”. Neither of which I recommend of course unless you want to be investigated by real life detectives. I now realise that this section of Things I Like hasn’t really had much to do with Midsomer Murders at all. But anyway…I like it.
Fancy Dress and Halloween
Now by fancy dress I mean, nights out and Halloween, not in the bedroom fancy dress. Believe me I’m not the type to dress as a fireman, kick down the bedroom door and whip out my hose pipe. A friend once told me that Halloween was her Christmas. She was into gothic and emo type stuff so it didn’t surprise me but since I have got older Halloween has definitely got more fun and I would now go as far as agreeing with what that girl told me. it’s better than Christmas. I don’t get as many sweets or chocolate but it’s so much fun to buy a ridiculously over the top fancy dress costume and go partying. It’s one night when you don’t have to actually worry about what your wearing…unless of course your Prince Harry and dress as a Nazi or you foolishly ordered a Jimmy Savile fancy dress costume. Certainly don’t go knocking on doors dressed as Jimmy Savile this Halloween. Now over the last few years I have dressed as a Clown, Jester, Thunderbird, Darth Vader and last year Edward Scissorhands. With my group of friends there’s also a secrecy over who will be dressed as what in order for their to be an element of surprise. This resulted one year in myself and friend both turning up as Thunderbirds. Which actually and fortunately worked out quite well as we were different Thunderbirds (Scott and was Virgil). The only thing not so great about Halloween is when it’s time to go the toilet. It doesn’t look great in the toilets when your out at a pub and there’s Darth Vader stood at the urinal with his jumpsuit round his ancles….espcially when he turns to you and says “I am your father”.
By this I don’t mean I am a fan of radical Islamic cleric Abu Hamza…although I do like how he replaced his hand with a hook. Although we may share the same passion for my favourite ever film, Hook. Hook released in 1991 starring Robin Williams was based on the story of Peter Pan and how he left Neverland and grew up into an adult forgetting all about his past adventures as Peter Pan. Years later Hook tracks down Peter Pan in the real world and steals his kids. Rather than the police dealing with it (as in most child abduction cases) Tinkerbell drags Peter Pan back off to Neverland for a battle with Hook to win back his kids. It’s bloody brilliant and I can never get tired of watching it, unless of course I watch it too much. As a kid the film made me feel like I didn’t want to ever grow up, but now I’m a grown up the film makes me want to be a kid again and go back to Neverland. This is pretty clever really because my parents would always say to me “just wait until you’re in the real world” so technically when you’re a kid, your living in Neverland!
Young ginger balls has… well… proved he’s got ginger balls by the sounds of it.
I once remember meeting Prince Harry whilst I was coming out of a public toilet and there were 2 people queuing ahead of him. I said to him, “you’re third in line to the throne”.
That anecdote is obviously a load of tripe, but the point stands that Prince Harry was photographed with his clothes off in a Las Vegas hotel, the city which is the doyen of gaming world when people play black jack, roulette and, apparently, strip billiards.
I used to play the odd bit of billiards when I was younger on my miniature snooker table (what a rebel) and I remember that one of the key components to scoring was to get the two balls to cannon against each other – I’m rather hoping this wasn’t a part of strip billiards.
Speculation was rife in the media with many commentators… erm… well… commentating, obviously. One breaking headline on BBC News channel advised that the photograph was “believed to be taken with a camera”. Presumably this information was there just to clarify in case anyone thought the pictures were taken using a piece of shortbread.
After the pictures had been placed on the internet (pictures of naked people on the internet, whatever next). The Sun then decided to take a bold post-Leveson Inquiry move to publish them claiming that it would be “perverse not to” – which could potentially mean that the people who aren’t printing naked photos are perverts?
Nonetheless, I can kind of sympathise with Prince Harry and the magnification of that is placed on most events in his personal life. For his part, Prince Harry has said that he wants a quiet few days and he’ll be spending some time with his family… and Prince Charles…
