Haven't done one of these for a while. I had a busy summer with ma n' pa over and then things at work got horrendously busy too. I liked this week's theme in spite of initial reservations that it is waaaaaay tooooooo broad and that the old lags amongst you will remember Dorian's "sonic tonic" list many moons ago. The theme threw up some wonderful suggestions and, applying my own rule that these have to be songs that make me jig up and down, I have selected ten of the vimmiest tunes I know. All of these songs have been there for me at various times in my life when I have just needed an extra kick. Well, it's better than OD-ing on Red Bull!
Question to go. I daren't actually count the days but I know we're only a kick in the pants off Christmas (that's that Geordie expression again Toffee - it means 'not very far from'). Frogprince and I are sorted present-wise. I shall kiss a tearful goodbye to our old and faithful cathode ray tube telly which has served us splendidly over the years and we will invest in a not too large but hopefully beautiful HD flat screen fuck off model. Well with all the fillums I watch and Frogprince's documentaries we really have to get round to it. Some time. I just hope it doesn't conk out on us after three years whereas the old one has given brilliant service. And over to you. Now's the time. For all your loved ones who may be, even as I type, scratching their heads and whizzing frantically round Amazon trying NOT to buy whatever TV chef cookbook is at number one.. WHAT DO YOU REALLY WANT FOR CHRISTMAS? And what will you probably be getting....?
