When I say "Somebody Shoot Me!"...
nezangel
...I don't mean it!

Was driving home from work yesterday when I suddenly heard a very loud CRACK - so loud my ears were ringing and my head tingling with shock - thought I'd been shot or something!  A window in my car was shattered and I'm guessing it was because I'd been driving past a woman mowing her lawn and the blades must have thrown a stone out of something - talk about bad luck (I should be used to having crap luck by now but I'm not!)  Anyway, my poor car Micky will be getting fixed on Sunday, I have to pay 60 excess on my insurance though, just when I'm trying to save up for a new car too as Micky has an oil problem which would cost more than he's worth to fix.  Innit marvellous! 

Anyway, for some reason I've been thinking a lot today about when I first got into the Goodies, not that anyone's interested but I don't force you to read this drivel!  I'm in a rambling mood so beware!

I am slightly too young to remember them when they were originally on (& of course the Beeb never repeat them so I grew up knowing nothing about them except I once saw a clip of Michael Aspel getting attacked by Twinkle when I was young and laughed my socks off at it and one of my brothers had 'Father Christmas Do Not Touch Me' which I loved!  My brothers are a fair bit older than me and have always gone on about how much I'd have loved the Goodies - teasing gits!  My bloke Jon (who's also a fair bit older than me) often mentioned that it's my kind of humour too so for my birthday in July 2004 he got me the first dvd - this was (apart from my cat the year after) the best present in the world! 
The reason being, the day before my birthday, out of the blue I got made redundant - no warning, nothing!  I had already booked my birthday off work so spent that day moping about being thoroughly depressed and looking in the Jobcentre for work.  That night I watched the Goodies DVD and from the instant the menu screen came up I was smiling, I forgot my depression, my problems - all my cares just went away and I laughed so much I was aching!  Over the next month or so until I found & started a new job (the one I am stuck in now!) whenever I got down I just put the DVD on and it was instant happiness.  That's why I love the Goodies so much, not only do they make me laugh and appeal to my silly nature but they also helped me through a horrible time and to this day the DVD's can always be relied on to cheer me up if I'm feeling blue. 

Well, sorry about the essay but I wanted to put down just why the Goodies are special to me.

cheers

I am one of the lucky ones, although it took me years to realise it.  I grew up in desert N.S.W and we only had two T.V. chanels.  One was dodgy e.g. neighbours ten years after it started, prisoner, M.A.S.H. etc.  And then we had the A.B.C. The Goodies was played everynight at 6, I think, for 12 years. Took it for granted.  Now you can't get them anywhere.  It makes me laugh that we've seen it more than you guys.
