Update - Jan 18/06

Last night I went to the pub with the complete intention of having one pint and a bit of salad - being back to catch the 8:30 pm Corrie Street.

4 Strongbows later found me at Buddha Palace giving my order for fried rice and a deep fried crab claw via the restraurant's cell phone to the delivery guy/owner because the cashier/cook who was holding down the fort didn't speak English. (Delivery guy/Owner then repeats the order back to cashier cook in Cantonese.)

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanyway....I got back home to JUST catch the 10:30 pm show from Alberta.

I was a bit drunk so you'll excuse me if I forget any bits. (It's always New Years Eve in my world.)

Nobody Loves Me, Quite Like You Do.

Stepford Shel has decided to believe Charlie about Dev paying someone to beat him up. When Sunita and Dev walked into the pub, Shel starts right in on about Dev's evilness. (BTW - Jason who knows who did the real beating emains quiet during this whole song and dance)

Then right out of Planet Weird, Shel accuses Sunita of being brainwashed by Dev. Sunita calls Shel stupid and asks where the strong independant Shel of long ago went.

Well, pull out the saucers of milk boys, cause Shel leaps over the bar and BAM! It's cat fight central! The men folk seperate the girls before any major damage or nail breaks occur.

As a Writer, I Get So Worked Up that I Have to Watch My Blood Sugar Levels. Hand over the Bickies.

Gandalf continues to woo Audrey. (I dont' get it either,kids....she can't be that lonely.)

He attends the Weatherfield Book club as a guest speaker and immediately starts in on Ken. He looks at Ken and says, 'The Angry Young Man becomes Slightly Peeved Old Man' (Jacqueline laughs, Jacqueline laughs.)

Oh yeah, Norris walks in on Gandalf while he is hard away at work creating his next masterpiece. Except maybe Gandalf wasn't so much working as sleeping while a TAPE recording of typing noises is playing.

Good on ya, Gandalf! As a techincal writer, I've had to resort to this technique myself.

More than once.

Sally Forth!

Sally kissed and made up with both Rosie and Rita. And she did a nice job of apologizing for the 'You never had a family, Rita' comment. All seems forgiven.

Baldwin Blues

Adam is back from Scotland and has moved in with Mike and Penny. (I forgot this's whenever I hear about relatives moving in, I black out.)

Mike is pleased as punch that he's thrown off University and is getting ready to groom him for his eventual rise to the Baldwin throne. This means that he wants to leave the factory to Adam. Not Danny, Adam. And oh by the way, Danny, make sure you teach our Adam the ropes.

Danny pissssssssssssssed!

Diggery Doo

But DAMN don't his baked goods look fine? I'm getting hungry just watching this show now.

So did Galdalf get a leg over Audrey? (shudder) Because she showed up at Emily's with his tie. He'd left it in her car.

Lori said...

Great write up,, alcohol does you well!

Vanity, thy name is Norris.

The man who readily bursts everyone else's dream balloon is so thrilled to be Gandalf's buddy, he'll believe anything -- even the writer's block tape recording alibi.

Everyone knows when you get writer's block, you eat a pound of chocolate. Or play mindless computer games. Or talk on the phone to your sister for three hours.

That's what I do, anyway.

Addy said...

Great write up! Thanks again to MJ for letting me know about this site!!! Happy Corrie watching!

Jackie said...

Thank goodness for you write-ups! I can't believe it, it's been TWO NIGHTS in A ROW that I have missed Cornie! (I know, I'm filled with shame). If it wasn't for this blog, and comeing her to check out what's going on, I think that I might have a melt down!

And really, Audry? She hasn't caught on yet? And if Gandaulf really has writters block, why does he need so much paper???

I don't think so Gandalf got a leg over on Audrey, I think he took his tie off in the Rovers - plus there is some Shakepearean quote about alcohol and desire and ability (or lack thereof) that I can't remember right now. Must have killed off those brain cells in a pub somewhere...

Pamer said...

That quote is from Henry VII

" It provokes and unprovokes; it provokes the desire, but it takes away the performance: therefore much drink may be said to be an equivocator with lechery: it makes him, and it mars him; it sets him on, and it takes him off. "

Nerdy Jacqueline quotes Macbeth

Macbet: What three things does drink especially provoke?

Port: Marry, sir, nose-painting, sleep and urine. Lechery, sir, it provokes, and unprovokes; it provokes the desire, but it takes away the performance; therefore, much drink may be said to be an equivocator with lechery: it makes him, and it mars him; it sets him on, and it takes him off; it persuades him, and disheartens him; makes him stand to, and not stand to; in conclusion, equivocates him in a sleep, and, giving him the lie, leaves him.

My cat Sharky barfed yesterday which made me think of some lines from that Scottish play as well - 'out out damned spot'

MJ said...

Papasmurf: I'm waiting for Sharky to get his own blog.

papasmurf said...

I asked Sharky about writing a blog, but with the 22 hours a day spent sleeping, licking of the nether regions, and furniture shredding, there is no time left for blogging. And of course, the lack of opposable thumbs is an issue as well.
