  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
bbc news by edith on 29 September 2004 11:51am
i got home at 2am this morning after a long night of drinking and i remembered to set my alarm at 8.30am to watch michael on bbc breakfast news.after sitting there watching the man who can talk to horses and terry prattchet (both surprisingly interesting) the man himself came on. nice ten min chat but he must be getting bored by people asking the same questions. but it was very nice to see him again. it seems that he may have cured my hangover!

Michael says that he had a long night last night too edith!! as there was a preview of himalaya for the cast and he was feeling a bit worse for wear after it - commnet made on snadi toksvig prog

did you hear michael swear on the bbc and then immediately repeat the same phrase without the word *Bloody* edith???

I did! Even my son noticed (he had to be at school an hour later today) I'd just finished my night shift but even 10 minutes is worth staying up for.

Re: bbc news by Diamond on 29 September 2004 6:47pm

He was on the BBC World Service's "Outlook" program late last night. It turns out that he was an elephant in a past life.
Too bad I couldn't watch the BBC, and see the man who could talk to horses and to Terry Pratchett. Anybody read that book "The Terry Pratchett Whisperer?"

Intrepid, you're funny! And well-grounded grammatically.

Thanks for noticing my joke, gwen! I'm extremely handsome, too.
