Out of Flunter

Completely out of flunter. And it’s all because of the Ashes. Play didn’t start until midnight, UK time, and I promised myself that I would watch for maybe an hour or so before going to bed, but seldom managed to tear myself from the telly before 3am.

After five nights of this, I was feeling somewhat zombiefied. I held on last night willing Strauss to declare, but finally gave up with England 505-1 and a draw a certain outcome. Good match though.

On top of that, I’ve also been enjoying I’m a Celebrity — Get Me Out of Here for the first time ever. The trials haven’t been quite as gross and the celebs not quite so much up their own backsides.

I especially like fellow Mancunian, Shaun Ryder, for his wonderful Jack Duckworth memorial performance and Stacey Solomon who I hadn’t heard of before, but I swear is the reincarnation of Joyce Grenfell with an estuary accent.

    Oh Good Lord! Watching “I’m a Celebrity”? You sad, sad man. I thought you were better than that old chap! But I must say that Linford Christie has risen in my estimation as a result of this programme. Don’t you abhor the programme’s cruel disregard for the rights of small creatures which should be cherished and respected as much as large mammals in my view. What about that crazy Gillian? As mad as a Man U fan!…Of course I have never watched the programme.

    Not my cup of tea as rule, as I’m sure it isn’t yours, but you can’t help but read the newspaper reviews can you? And the added bonus must be that Gillian McKeith never works on tv again!
