I've had some job interviews recently, and BigOne is aware of the process. She was asking me about previous jobs I have had. I was telling her about the very first job I had. I was a paperboy. There was one house I massively disliked delivering to, as it had a long gravel drive and a huge ill tempered Alsatian dog that heard the approach across the stones. I really hated that part of the round, but the £7.50 a week was worth it. Anyway, it all resolved itself one summer's morning. I had opened the gate with the usual trepidation, and was making my way gingerly up the drive, being as quiet as I could. Heel and toe, heel and toe, go very slow, heel and toe. I approached the porch, Saturday Grauniad in hand, expecting the usual cacophony, but through the window I saw the dog playing the piano. That's when I knew it's Bach was worse than its bite.

I leant Mali my “Air on the G String” on vinyl, but he damaged it. I took revenge by similarly damaging his “Tocatta and Fugue in D Minor”.

You scratch my Bach; I’ll scratch yours!

Reminds me of that time I was planning to go to a fancy dress party with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone. The theme of the party was famous composers, I planned to go as Beethoven, Sly said he wanted to be Mozart and Arnold said "I'll be Bach"

Decided I was not enjoying the November darkness so got out my Christmas lights and wrapped them around my banister to provide a +1 seasonal jollity bonus.

It pains me to say it but Malia's tip about avoiding tangles by wrapping them around cardboard before storage actually worked!

We were talking about something similar yesterday, with people playing The Game, and apparently I’ve just lost because I thought of it and so have you now and blah blah blah. So with Whammaggeddon, because it’s an ace song so you should just pop it on play on December 1st, get it out of the way and then you can bop along all December :D

We heard Shakin’ Stevens Merry Christmas Everyone in the wild on Wednesday. We’ve been playing it for weeks, obviously, but we always hold that when you hear Shaky in the wild Christmas PROPERLY kicks off.

Jem is away for a couple of days close to Christmas, and our usual doggie daycare place closes until January at the end of this week, so I've decided to try and get away for a two night trip to York while Jem is away... taking the dog with me.

What could possibly go wrong? ;)
