Things that make you go 'hmm'…

Happy holidays!

You might not have noticed, but it’s Christmas. Again. I have tried to ignore it but as lovely Jean Luc Picard in Star Trek once said ‘resistance is futile’ so here is my Christmas post. First my two favourite Christmas cartoons.



Yes, I know they are both essentially carrot jokes but I like them anyway.

I’m off up to London tomorrow to meet up with my boys and we are going to see my most favourite of comedians, Eddie Izzard. I am SO excited. I have wanted to see him for years and I thought I had missed my chance as he seemed to be concentrating on his film career at the expense of his stand up comedy. However, he is back! And I am going to see him! Yay!

However, as I’m going to be away for a few days and as it’s Christmas and it’s a busy time and as we are going to be spending Christmas with friends and  as I have been very bad at keeping my blog up to date and am feeling a bit jaded, I have decided to take a break from blogging for a week or so and will resume in the New Year. 

So, have a wonderfully jolly time with lots of love and merriness and plumptious Christmas good things. I wish you all an especially excellent New Year, may everything be as you would wish it to be.  In the meantime, here’s a little Christmas fun, courtesy of my hero, Eddie Izzard.

    Can it be I really once manage to be the first comment in row on YOUR blog, Diane? :D Maybe someone’s already posting while I’m still typing. I wish you a very happy holiday time and hope you’ll have a joyful start into a fun and sparkling new year!

    I got mail notice that you sent me some things on FB; will try to catch up after Christmas!

    WHAT?? I feel so…abandoned!! ;) Will you keep on FB and keep us posted on your whereabouts and make us envious of all the fun things you’ll be doing?

    Have a fantabulous time with your boys…uh, men!…and with Eddie! Learn a new swear word for me, please. My kids are tired of hearing the same cuss words from me. LOL!

    The second joke (the one with rabbit) was really funny. I was laughing. By the way, happy holidays and Merry Christmas.

    I like those comics you posted. Thank you!

    Merry Christmas :)

    I don’t like the thought of you being jaded …….. pull yourself together and get a grip woman! [I’ve tried this line before – I live in hope. Have a lovely break and come back feeling refreshed!]

    I love Eddie Izzard as well. I’ve seen most of my favourite comedians but Eddie still eludes me.

    I’m sure he’ll be hilarious.

    Have a great Xmas

    I adore Eddie! MY husband and I just crack up when we watch his old stuff. Have a great time!

    No borg queen?

    Now THERE was a sweetheart, possibly misunderstood and just looking for love.
