No, paintings, tat and ice cream. Only so much that you want.
I was too young to develop an opinion; there wasn't anything else on that i know
of, I certainly wouldn't want to rewatch them. Or the bow with 'a present from
Work has gone back to the level that i can manage - time to go for tea, do some
xmas shopping and read the funny emails doing the rounds.

Exactedly, as Waldemar Januscak would (and did) say.
Mock me not in my frail dotage. You young people today, no respect for us auld
uns. If it wasn't for us the world wouldn't be what it is today ..... Bugger!
Didn't think that one through.
How can that be? I thought all employers these days operated on the basis of
giving everyone more than they can possibly cope with but just not enough so
that they top themselves (apart from busy periods when extra effort will be
required). You're welcome to the Crimbo shopping. One of the reasons why I try
to cultivate strangers and enemies rather than friends is so I don't have to
make much of an effort at this time of year.

if you say, or he does, or did.
There is a film out of the Magic Roundabout. Apart from the fact that it would
be a crime to redo it, it is apparently absolutely rubbish. Don't mess with
perfection i say.
An office, you know, works to completely different rules to the catering
business. That is why around crimbo, you are busy and we are not. You are
feeding us at our parties!!!

I do and he did.
They should have used the Jasper Carrott song as the script of the film. That
might have made it worth watching.
Thank you for reminding me of that joyous fact. You also forgot to mention that
when you are not busy you go to parties and when we are not busy we get fired.
Sounds like a cushy number at your place, any jobs going?

Ashley, yes. Shall i put a word in?

Pity the Beeb insisted on playing Funky Moped instead. Just think how the
course of world history might have been changed if the yoof of yesterday had had
their minds opened to that version of events rather than the official MR line
they followed on the TV!
Ta but hang on just a mo. Fings may be about to happen elstwhere. Many rivers
but only one sea to cross.

Can't remember it acshually, i did like Dougal though; Blue Peter made a good
version with wool and a toilet roll tube.
ooh how exciting. I have found a glitch in my party/work combination. If you
don't drink enough generally and then over do it on the annual party you suffer
the next morning. Thank goodness for spell checker....

Glorified bog-brush or some such was, I think, the phrase Florence used to
describe Dougal in the song, if I dismember rightly.
Good lord, what an interesting discovery. Perhaps you could get a government
grant to research it further. I must admit I would never have thought that the
spell-checker would work as a hangover cure!
