Snip snip snippets.

The dodgy box seems to be kaput. It's had a good run, but is only leaving me with RTE One and, irony of ironies, Setanta Ireland now.

Johnny says he won't fix it for me, which means he will, but maybe I'm better off away from King Of Queens and Frasier re-runs. OK, I'll have a little cry if I miss any Liverpool games, but if it means watching five series of Six Feet Under all over again it will have been worth it.

Since I started this blog I've done reviews of the year in December. Musing on this year's categories. I'll probably just re-hash last year's and throw in a section on blogs just for the bejaysus of it.

I'm working the 3-11 again. Last night's beer is still playing away in the gut, we had the work Cris Kindle or however you spell it. Maybe it's kringle. Meh. A good night, hadn't been out for the last week, so it was good to sit about the freeness of the liquor.

And where was it you went last night for your work do?

Radge said...

That would have been MacTurcaills, Darren. Not a place to be bragged about.

Terence McDanger said...

Certainly not the carbery at any rate! Ha ha!

Sigh! Overworn lunch time complaints getting me down.

Radge said...

Their chicken curry does be nice on occasion it does be.

narocroc said...

Aha, my box of dodginess has ceased to be also. Have RTE 1 & 2, TV3 and BBC 1 & 2. Like being back in the 80's all over again.

I wonder if it's curable?

Radge said...

I'm in work at the moment so I'm not sure, Na Roc Roc, but you might log on to fixya.com ... Could be something there.

Susan said...

Working 3-11, and I've just sat down to the blogs at 10:15, so you're nearly through it.

Weird...that cheers *me* up. Must be one of those 'sympathy symptoms' that caregivers and expectant fathers get?

Ah well. If you're going out tonight, have one for me?

Radge said...

Not long left Susan.

Terence just left the office too. We thought about a pint but will save ourselves for tomorrow evening.

I heard NTL got in some goodwillhunting type genius to scribble in a new encryption code so that they could finally defeat the dodgy boxes. This could be a myth but I have had a few panic filled phone calls from dodgy box owners about watching the liverpool arsenal game in my house.

In honor of the holidays and it's hectic garbage...I mean merriness, have a toast of friendship in my absence. And no, I don't mean the kind with jam. ;)

Radge said...

Red - I'd be in a similar state, but I'm working for the game tomorrow anyway so I'll see it in here.

Hope - Thanks!

Swingboy said...

It's Kris Kringle. I think.

Radge said...

Swingboy - Elmo told me tonight that Kris Kringle is Santa, but Kris Kindle is the present thing, but she also claims to know everything. Bloody siblings.

Dodgy box alive and kicking again. Thank Jeebus. Got a code from the mate of mine who supplied it and it worked a treat. Give me a shout if you need it i can pass it on. Might do the trick for you too?
