Am I boring you?

I'm feeling awfully dull at the moment. I'm wracking my brains for something interesting to blog about but, and let's face it, if you have to do that it's not worth doing.

So after yesterdays most boring posts ever - yes, they were just fillers - I've decided I'll be back when I've got something interesting to talk about, like why was Gabrielle wearing the biggest sunglasses in Europe while eating in a restaurant on Masterchef, or how much I really, really hate London cyclists and Addison Lee cab drivers and how the world is going to hell as everyone completely ignores traffic lights/lanes/their own safety just to get one over on their neighbour and how it'll all end in tears.

Or I could talk about how much I'm enjoying Extras second time around, more so than the the relentlessly gag-filled The Office, or how brilliant Suranne Jones was in Unforgiven, how much I'm looking forward to the return of Mad Men and Damages, how Morrissey's Hairdresser On Fire is my chanson du jour, why I'm enjoying everything Eighties, how Mrs F-C said I was unromantic for wanting Ralph Fiennes to have just moved on in The Reader, why I'm always tired, how Britain is just melting down bit by bit where there's no jobs, no money, no shops, no nothing, and why I feel itchy feet coming on.

I'm going for a lie down.

The guy cutting himself on masterchef, and Steve aka, 'worst cook we've ever had', were hilarious.

Five-Centres said...

Hello Dan. Yes, poor bloke and he seemed quite promising too. 'Worst cook' was really bad - boiled potatoes and fried bacon. Mmmm.

Simon said...

How about some more opinions on the celebrities you've met and hate? Always highly entertaining.

Five-Centres said...

I think really I've done that to death, Simon, though if I really think hard I'm sure there's some stones left unturned...

Sylvia Sims
Christine Stephen-Daley
Richard Wilson
Vic Reeves

Chris Hughes said...

Well, come on, we need to know more.

I can imagine Vic Reeves being a bit of a cock.

Phrases you love to hate is always a favourite. Although meeja pronunciation and 'Media Hair' are close seconds.
A Robert Peston/Jeremy Vine extended vowels rant may be what's needed to shake you from your ennui.

Five-Centres said...

Hmmm, not sure I've got enough to say about that OP, though I can't stand born-again Jezza and I object to Peston's strange delivery.

Okay, Chris. Vic Reeves is indeed a cock and quite rude. Wilfully bizarre and not at all funny. And the girth of the man you wouldn't believe until you see it for yourself.

Sylvia Sims hates journalists (when was the last time anyone went a-knocking at her door), chainsmokes, and I had to wait ages while she snored off a big lunch on the sofa. That said, once I'd won her over, she was charm itself.

Chris Hughes said...

Well, that's the F-C charm for you.

Are you looking forward to the new Clive Swift sitcom on BBC1...?

Five-Centres said...

How I laughed when I saw he was in that. I see only Jane Asher has done publicity. Funny that.

You could always do a post about your cat. Most other bloggers with pets manage to bludgeon everyone with amusing animal stories every two hours or so. But yours remains a beast of mystery.

Five-Centres said...

There's not much to say really, Kitten, except she's a bad girl and I adore her. She will remain a beast of mystery.
