After my Grandparents left on Boxing Day we didn't really do anything much. We just lazed around mostly. Yesterday I woke with stupid stomach cramp/spasm things again. Looks like those dumb Metamucil tablet things aren't helping. Maybe I need to try for a bit longer yet. I went back to sleep for a while, then when I got up we went down to Camberwell to have a look in the shops (still too crazy to go to Chadstone yet). I found a second-hand copy of "Singstar Party" for 26 bucks which was cool! Now I have "Singstar" and "Singstar 80s" and "Singstar Party". The only one I don't have yet is "Singstar Pop". I'll probably buy that soon too. I hope they bring out some other versions as well! Then we went to JB and discovered the DVDs of "At Last the 1948 Show" and "Do Not Adjust Your Set" which of course we bought!
We had some lunch at Georges then came back home. We watched the Dr Who Christmas Special (which we had, ahem, borrowed from someone over the internet) Then we played my new Singstar Party for a while. Trent doesn't really like the Singstar games much - mostly because it's the only game ever invented that I can actually beat him at! Then when our voices started to hurt from singing too much we played Buzz! for a while instead. We had dinner and watched "At Last the 1948 Show" until bedtime. It was very cute. Funny to see a lot of the seeds for later Goodies and Python sketches. And they all look so young in it!
Today we have started to do a bit of housework. General stuff like washing dishes and clothes. It really never ends. Kind of feels like my life revolves around housework at the moment. If I get really enthused I may even start trying to pack later on today.
I love At Last the 1948 Show, how good is it?! I was freaked out the first time I saw it, because I had previously written and performed a skit very much like "The Psychiatrist", and something very similar to "Thief in the Library". My friends were freaked out as to how close it was too! You can link almost every sketch from the DVD with other shows that group of people have done. There's one there - I think it's called "Topic: Freedom of Speech" that was copied word for word in Marty with John Junkin. I'm just going on now... awesome show though...
Actually, what's even freakier is we did a show with a skit in it and then a week later Rove had it on his show... it was freaky until we found out later that one of our cast members had been catching up with some of his writers, and was telling them what we were doing. So they stole our ideas. There was some serious fist shaking done in their direction.
The main cast is Tim with John Cleese and Graham Chapman (who of course went on to Monty Python) and Marty Feldman. Also Aimee MacDonald. Bill does make an appearance in one or two episodes. I don't think Graeme is in it at all though.
Hey RatDog. Yeah I swear by the dissolving Mylanta tablets. They can work wonders sometimes. I've also had Buscopan reccomended to me. Just been trying it lately and it seems like it helps but hard to tell just yet.
Hi daftbird - uh-oh! I hope I didn't send the message to someone else! Maybe I didn't send it to anyone and just deleted it by mistake or something. Oh well, it was just me whinging on about my tummy troubles and different possible remadies. You're not missing much
