Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

Double Dose

Weren't we just the lucky ones last night? At 8pm Hallmark showed The Pilgrim





Then at 11pm, Channel 5 showed Gemini.



I don't remember seeing it advertised, so I'm really glad I caught it.

Tomorrow was on Yesterday

A handy selection



A game of threes.

Marvellous Malignant

Last night we had another opportunity to watch Malignant. Does anybody ever tire of seeing these episodes? I could watch so many of them over and over again.

I know these scenes are popular, so I thought I'd treat us all to a viewing.






Now wipe that smile off your face, Vixen!

I'm a Sadist!

This Friday, autistic little Ben (of the Phil Collins Gorilla-drums ad) turns 13. Somehow in the Maths lesson we got to discussing how next year his birthday will be on Sunday. "No, Saturday," says Ben. So I explain about Leap Years. Ben starts desperately trying to explain what's "right", frantic that I should understand what he's saying, that his birthday is on Saturday next year. He sobs, tears roll down his cheeks. Others haven't heard about Leap Years either, but they get it. I explain about the lost days when Britain changed to the Gregorian Calendar from the Julian Calendar in the 18th Century, a couple of hundred years after the rest of Europe (nothing new there then), and how people rioted because they thought they had lost those days out of their lives. I tell them how it was necessary for there to be extra days every four years to keep the dates in time with the seasons. I say that this happens in years divisible by 4, except in century years, which have to be divisible by 400. Someone else says they always coincide with Olympics years.

Ben was inconsolable. What a cruel teacher!

Recycled Chinoiserie

This was on last night (as was Grow, only later and on another channel. Two lots of Bobby in one night!)

The second and third slideshows are two of my favourite Bobby scenes.

SOS

If any of you know or remember Bryde, please go to her blog to offer her support. She has just been diagnosed with a form of breast cancer. I'm sure she would like to know people are sending her good thoughts.

Her blog address is http://celticbairdsblog.blogspot.com/

Post 1200

It only seems like 200 posts ago that I made my 1000th post. What better way to celebrate this new milestone than with a VERY Sound Body?





Anyone remember Lilly, who did this great collage for JoJo from a couple of my very ordinary captures?

Belated Christmas Joke

Our deputy head told a joke in assembly today. He was doing a pseudo-scientific debunking of Santa (I have two boys in my class who are 13 this week and still believe in Santa), but finished up with: "Does Santa exist? - Of course he does. He's magic." Anyway, he showed a cartoon slide of Rudolph, and then asked if anyone knew the name of the reindeer that runs behind Rudolph. No? He's called Bruno. Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, Bruno the Brown-nosed Reindeer. He runs behind Rudolph, and he runs as fast as Rudolph, but he can't stop as quickly..."

(Staff doubled up and in tears, 80 special needs kids looking baffled.)

Season 3 Bobby

A couple of recycled slideshows from Undaunted Mettle.



A few stills, too.

Don't you?



It's an obvious marriage, really, isn't it?

That middle finger is SO long, it's impossible NOT to imagine things about it, if you follow my meaning. Certainly puts a smile on my face!
