Bah Humbug!

Thankfully that's another Xmas period over....don't get me wrong, I like the festive season from a family point of view, but what with working night shift over the festivities, I got to see little cheer. It is amazing how alcohol fuels the eejits out there in MOPland to fall out with each other at this time of year when it is supposed to be goodwill to all men (and women).

A few days off now and I will be home on Hogmanay so I can put my happy face on at last and abuse alcohol wisely enough to just have a hangover to worry about. Unfortunately it will be late shift for me on the 1st and 2nd days of 2007, when no doubt the misuse of alcohol will rear its ugly head again and I will find myself acting as referee in familial and marital disputes over blindingly obviously trivial matters conducted by those whose brain cell is lonely and pickled to the point of complete failure.

My New Years resolution is to keep a balanced view on all this ..... and jail the lot of them!

You have been warned.

Happy new year.

let me tell you a funny story about new year.

20 years ago we lived in leicester, great place, and we had a large circle of friends. One of them was Jim. Now he was from scotland and he loved celebrating the new year.
Every year he and his wife Dooreen would go somewhere special for the new year. Anyway one night he was talking about all the places they had been, and very innoncently, I turned to him and said:
"You love mahogany, don't you?"

Neddless to say they all roared and it took me a few years to live that down!

Brilliant !!!! Can't wait for one of the boozed up eejits to repeat that classic malapropism (or shall we call it a Hulettism?)
