    Quiz Time

    It's actually "Wombling through, I'll tune into you, you tune into me." It's a reference to some old CB radios that Bungo found on the common and Tobermory mended, thereby enabling me to communicate with Madam Cholet at the other end of the burrow whenever I want a nice horlicks before bedtime. (And that's not a euphemism btw)

    Quiz Time

    Boybands (exemplified by the 5 pretty boys sat in a row type like Westlife and Boyzone, but the lot of 'em really, going back to the bay city rollers) Anybody connected to Simon Cowell or Louis Walsh Any music produced by girl pop stars whose principal/sole talent lies in pouting in their undies in videos - Cheryl, Ariana and dozens of others in between (The videos themselves can stay, albeit on mute) 95% of reggae music 99% of disco music 100% of house music spice girls anything elton john has done in the last 40 years anything cliff richard has done in the last 60 years ..and Mud's Lonely this Christmas, which kept our 'Wombling Merry Christmas' from being the seasonal no 1 in 1974, and which rankles to this day.

    I wanted it to be one of those can join any time pools for those who missed out on the major dead pools, hence why I revealed my team now. You can join anytime if you want. This game looks fun. Does 'join at any time' run to '17 months after everyone else started' by any chance?

    Been To Any Good Gigs Lately?

    Took other half to see (ahem) Michael Buble the other night. Not really my thing but he's quite charismatic and does what he does pretty well, if you like that sort of thing. audience loved him although he lost them for a bit in the middle, told an anecdote about visiting Bournemouth and made a few mildly off colour remarks about old people which were received in silence - after all this time doesn't seem to have noticed that his fan base are not edgy teenagers but their parents (and in some ases grandparents). He got tham back on side well before the end though. Reasonable night out but given I had to pay Viagogo £350 for a pair of tickets won't be doing it again. In his 40s now and filling out a bit but obviously not going to be of interest to us professionally for decades.

    Guess The Song

    Yes, well done Toast, you win. The other hit was indeed the Stones' Ruby Tuesday and the successful British MOR band with two number ones that also had a minor hot with one of her songs was the New Seekers with 'Look what they've done to my song, Ma'.

    Overrated People

    And Emma Watson is indeed sufficiently drop dead gorgeous to play any role she chooses. She's in my 5 permissible infidelities (see 'Friends' episodes passim) along with Jenna Coleman, Madame Cholet, Anna Friel and Katharina Johnson-Thompson (scouse accent notwithstanding).
