Room Lovely, Look You.

Recommended Posts

I have recently been pondering the amount of negativity over in the Room 101 thread, and thought it was about time that we had somewhere to post those things we quite like. The title of the thread only came to me when I watched Stephen Fry on the BBC version of Room 101 this weekend, and he wanted to put Room 101 itself into Room 101, as it was all a bit negative. He proposed creating a Room Lovely, into which he put Macintosh computers and Kathy Burke.

So, this is a place where you can list some of the things that you quite like.

Eg, that gentle glugging sound that a wine bottle makes when you're pouring the first glass, but before any wine has come out.

Also, when lorry drivers thank each other by indicating right, then left then right again after one has overtaken the other.

I'd like to put Room 101 into Room Lovely. Without that where else can one vent ones fury at the likes of Anthea Turner and Jamie Oliver?

 

Also, whilst I'm at it can I put in the cold side of a pillow, laughing so much you cry, walking in fresh snow and eventually obtaining meaningful results from experiments that have become so tedious that after the nth repeat you have lost the will to live.

I saw that too :lol:

 

What would I put into Room Lovely?

 

Coca cola and crisps obviously... What? Stop looking at me like that.

 

Okay for my real entries for Room Lovely:

  1. The Chinese take away up the road.
  2. Telly programs on forensics (including CSI and Dexter).
  3. Modern telecommunications like mobile telephones and tinterweb (uhm... the internet).

[*]The Chinese take away up the road.

 

I'm a fan of Chinese food but after reading a recent documentary I learned in a majority of restaurants 'the cola ' is fried.

 

I don't trust my local Chinese restaurant near me. Do you trust yours?

 

I advise the cheap way out which will not only save you money, but it will save you from heart attacks, strokes and diabetes.

 

Order a Water!

 

Peace,

Banshees, shut your ignorant drooling cake-hole, there's a good chap. I and quite a few others now have you on ignore, so please use your regular identity.

Tizer, not the new fangled one, the ORIGINAL Tizer that they have now ruined. :skull:

My life, up to the age of 19, the best years ever.

Galaxy Chocolate bars

1968 Dodge Chargers

The smell of cut grass in the Summer.

The English countryside, still the best.

Ron Jeremy- There is hope for the ugly

Laurel and Hardy

The odd S***ff

This one can run and run.

A glass of milk & a chocolate digestive before going to bed.

 

Playing the winning shot after an almighty rally in a game of Badminton.

 

Hearing "What A Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong being played.

 

 

 

 

 

These are a few of my favourite things.

Sky's Gillette Soccer Saturday, with the godlike Jeff Stelling. Yes, I'm like a pig in shite spending two hours watching Paul Merson or Phil Thompson shouting "oooohhh no, 'e's missed an open goal!!!" as they gaze at an unseen TV monitor, and I'm only ever so slightly embarrassed to admit it.

Well that makes two of us.

Im afraid it is a ritual if Im not working. I make bloody sure that Im laying, prone, on the Sofa listening to the finest TV anchor man in the country. Stelling is class.

Everything has to fit around it, luckily Lady FN is quite a fan of it too.

That makes 3 of us. I never thought I'd be peas-in-a-pod with Saturday-afternoon couch spuds 'arry and the missus, but (when I had Sky, which I don't these days) I used to wait with bated breath (almost, twixt-spliff) for the Hartlepool score. I recall when they got sent down (forget which season, it was fairly recently), and the gradually-unfolding drama of Jeff Stelling's personal tragedy was the best entertainment on telly for years!

And, whilst I'm here and vaguely on-topic, Soccer AM. Lovely.

Make that a quartet.

 

Stelling, all by himself, made a relatively household name of an obscure Scottish lower division striker in Kenny Deuchar.

 

I also watched Soccer Saturday to see if we'd be promoted to the Championship vs Leicester in 2005. I well remember Stelling's introduction... "There's been a crucial goal at the Walkers Stadium..."

 

 

Ray Stubbs, on the other hand, should be banished to the hell that is Room 101's dungeon for inept, fat, incompetent smug w**nkers.

The glorious "take" after casting to a rising fish

The adrenalin rush from a big fish on the line

The endorphin buzz after a tough gym session

The first pint at a rugby international

A good sing song

Fishing huts

Cobwebs dripping with dew

Chewing the fat with mates

Any newt anywhere

 

Lots of smells: bacon butties, geranium leaves, salt air at the seaside, candy floss, wax polish, the metallic smell of rain

 

 

..... and thick, tasty gravy

Once again Madame, exquisite taste.

I do find, however, that unless they are thoroughly cooked for at least 1hr 30mins at 200 degrees celsius, they can be a little tough on the palette.

The average American sports fan cannot quite grasp the concept of Soccer Saturday. The basic premise is, "Oh no, we won't be showing any of the action, not for several hours." And it's not even live commentary of any of the matches. It's a bunch of ex players, many of whom are only semi-literate, watching the games on telly and then shouting about what you've just missed.

 

Right up there with golf on the radio and ball-by-ball updates on Test cricket as the lamest means of following a sport.

I'm going to add to the chorus of approval for Jeff Stelling - he really is the business!

I've not seen Soocer Saturday for a bit as I don't have Sky and Virgin have taken Sky Sports off. Instead I either have to go through the interminable Score on BBC Interactive with 'Eeyore' Palmer and co....

 

...or watch a match via Sopcast @ 3pm on a Saturday!

 

(mum's the word) :skull:

As one of life's Skyless minions all this Jeff Stelling talk is over my head. Spare a thought for us terrestrials. It's like a clique within a clique. It's a bit sad in fact that any TV programme should feature in a thread about the best things in life.

 

I haven't felt so excluded since we were the last family down our street to get BBC2 and I had to listen to everybody else going on about Rowan and Martin's Laugh In.

 

"Very eenteresting, but stupid!" I even know the catch phrases but never saw it. How sad is that?

Be careful, my pet. Remember your lordship is not exactly enjoying a surplus of body parts as it is.

Pate, this company's chicken liver, tequila & cranberry pate is heaven.

Cognac.

Bookshops, I love the smell of new books and can happily spend hours browsing in bookshops.

Xmas trees, I love to sit with a glass of wine with just the tree lights on.

Snow, it thrills me every time I go outside and everywhere is covered in a thick blanket of snow.

Toby Stephens as Mr. Rochester in Jane Eyre, a girl can dream :skull: .
