Got the wife a Kindle , rather impressive , although i still prefer books.
On afternoon shift for the big day THANKFULLY all the kids are landing with wives girlfriends , not a fan of any of them to be honest ..
The mrs has been dropping hints all day and giving me the come on, it's been 4 months, i'm shitting it....St John Ambulance on standby.
The kids, or the wives and girlfriends?
Agree with you on real books rather than a Kindle, maybe it's because I spend all day sat in front of the computer anyway, but can't think of anything worse than having to read books on a screen too.
Anyway , heres the famous vid from top of the pops ...
Some daft bugger got Jockie Wilson instead of Jackie ...
Happy families, eh?
Have a good Christmas anyway, with the kids if nothing else
Swoop, for me at least, price wouldn't make much of a difference. I don't tend to read all that much, when I do I'm usually happy enough to just pick something up from 2nd hand/charity bookshops. Did recently buy a couple of new books (new as in not 2nd hand, not new as in recently published) off Amazon, just checked the price I paid against the Kindle price, they're 23p cheaper on Kindle
I've just been adjusting the presents under the tree and two of mine have made a 'chinking' sound like the coming together of glass which I'm presuming is alcohlol of some kind, if not I'm going to be very upset
I was at my sisters last night and her hubby mentioned he cooks the christmas dinner as do I, when i asked him what he was cooking he started realing off frozen veg, aunt bessies and bisto ffs. he seemed a bit shocked when I took the piss out of him.
Have MTV classic on at the moment Wins, they're playing the 40 greatest Christmas songs of all time, soft cnut i am.
, I'd have thought it would have nailed number 1.
lets see where the Pogues and Kirsty end up.
Terry Pratchetts stuff the same
I know you can obviously do both, but using a Kindle requires a large-ish initial expense of buying the equipment in the first place, which paper books don't require. Not knocking the Kindle, but there's no way I personally would get anywhere near enough use out of it to justify buying one, even if I did want to spend more hours than I already do staring at a screen.
Just going for a shower before I go out
Have a good one all
merry christmas lads xxxxxxxx
