Bagpuss - yawn

Oh dear.

I appear to be turning into Bagpuss.

That is to say, my day seems to consist of giving big yawns. Occasionally punctuated by short bursts of work.

This is not conducive to productivity.
Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop


...I spent a large chunk of the last week watching assorted episodes of Jonathan Creek, and of course over the weekend we had QI and its XL version. Then last night, I was looking for something to watch and decided, on the grounds that I'd like something fun, lighthearted, and possibly a tad romantic, to go for Bob and Rose.

The connection didn't really strike me until just now, but basically, yeah, I seem to be on a bit of an Alan Davies phase.


(I'll never forget the time I was in the audience for a studio recording for a HIGNFY he was in, and I was near the front and as the evening wore on - for those who don't know, it takes about two-and-a-half hours to record the material for a 30 minute episode - I was getting increasingly knackered and yawned and he pointed at me and said, "there's a bloke in the front row yawning!" ISTR that bit made it in the finished programme, but thankfully I didn't...)
