If You Can’t Say Anything Nice… (Room 101)

Wednesday, 11 February 2015

  Vehemently defying the old adage “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”, I’ll be going back onto Room 101 this Friday evening, to say MORE horrid things about stuff I don’t like.

  On my last visit to that excellent show, I ranted about nudity in gyms, gimmicky tea and hotel room windows that don’t open. But I looked into my dark heart and found other things that are INCREDIBLY ANNOYING, so I accepted an invitation to go back and sound off about them - with host Frank Skinner and fellow guests Warwick Davies and Dr Christian Jessen.

  The programme is this Friday evening at 8.30pm on BBC One. But here’s a preview someone’s put up on YouTube of one of my selections. As I remember, this was a bit of a controversial choice with the studio audience at the time…

I quite agree Vicky but as an expert in the Scottish accent would you not agree that Bond was more fun when Sir Sean played him? Eh Mish Moneypenny?

Watched the show tonight. Your spot on about the bracelets. Bane of my Girlfriends life.

One of the best episodes I’ve seen - a great chemistry of contestants. Please tell me where you got that gorgeous purple dress, please?

We recently visited the Gough Square home of the extraordinary Dr Samuel Johnson.  He described himself as

“a hardened and shameless tea-drinker, who has, for twenty years, diluted his meals with only the infusion of this fascinating plant; whose kettle has scarcely time to cool; who with tea amuses the evening, with tea solaces the midnight, and, with tea, welcomes the morning.”

and claimed
Tea’s proper use is to amuse the idle, and relax the studious, and dilute the full meals of those who cannot use exercise, and will not use abstinence.

Thought you might like these quotes - can get on a teatowel, too :)

Lubomir, I don’t think Vicky will play headsup with you online, if that’s what you’re asking ;)
