Mrs. Brown’s Mischievous Call from BBC One’s Mrs. Brown’s Boys Christmas Special, 2012.
What’s on your mind?
Merriness, Suzanne! Hope you had a happy Christmas and get a nice rest and some cozy comfort as we approach the New Year.
hey dearie — i had fun at jen’s yesterday and have done nothing today other than one load of laundry. how was your day?
I had fun with my daughter and son-in-law and the twins for Christmas Eve and morning…. and then a nice dinner on Christmas Day with my dad. Today was a catch up day….. car wash, got eyeglasses fixed, moved some money, new battery for a hand-held phone with some help at Radio Shack, new roll of stamps. Getting errands done can sometimes feel enormously satisfying!
oh it can be very satisfying! esp when ya don’t forget anything on that errand list *laughing*
mrs brown’s other phone call
I do so much driving that my car was a mess…. and I had to take my dad to the ER twice over the past several weeks. I was so embarrassed that he had to get rides in my dirty car. But maybe that’s the twist…. now that it’s clean and shiny, he won’t need any more trips to the ER. He seems to be doing well….. which gave me the time to take my car for a spruce up.
I’ve heard of the ‘sandwich generation’ but I think I’m the ‘super sandwich generation.’ My dad needed care and my son-in-law was having a minor surgery and the grandboys needed to get to pre-school……… I was maxi-managing. Thankfully some of my daughter’s friends stepped in to take the boys to school on surgery morning. I’m tough and resilient, but medical schedules can be an undoing!
i’m sorry to hear ya had to take him to the er but it is good news that he’s doing well.
a triple decker of a sandwich for sure dearie… at least. thank goodness for the friends who took the boys to school.
Aloha, Suz and lln pups…!
I hope all had a joyous Noel…! ;-)
aloha tut — how’s paradise tonight?
Aloha, Tut. How’s your Holiday weather? We’re in the 70s+ at my California beach, and no one is complaining!
iirc i featured a longer clip of mrs brown’s bikini wax up top a few years ago
Sunrise on Christmas Morning at my daughter’s new abode offered a view of the Pacific that was so grand. Beautiful colors and views of the Channel Islands. Lovely, spiritual.
Hi all. Hope everyone had a great xmas.
Hey, tuez, good to see you!
hey tuez — how was your day?
It started off with gorgeous weather and then the rain set in with a vengeance this evening….! Your weather maps looked pretty fugly, M’dear…!
hey ppd — how’s the monterey bay area tonight?
Good to see you too. I’m not up this late much anymore, but I miss you guys.
high was 34.5 — tis currently 33.4 and still very foggy. humidity is running 98% so if the temps drop a wee bit more, gonna be freezing fog
missed you too tuez
Still hoping for rain, Suzzz – how’s everything up north tonight?
Today wasn’t bad. Yesterday however.
hoping for rain too — this isn’t good
I certainly miss ya, tuez…! ;-)
oy… hope it wasn’t too horid tuez
PPDCUS, is the Monterey Bay getting some of the warmth we’re getting in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties?
*wow* So all that moisture is hitting B.C., but, not the PNW…! 8-(
edit: That doesn’t bode well, come Spring or Summer…!
yeah… we could use some rain — not as badly as ca but we’re close to being as bad. my big fear is a pineapple express is gonna hit norcal with too much water for the ground to handle and then there will be landslides etc.
The only thing good about xmas is that the spetic tank is working again
Record high on Tuesday while we were bell ringing for Salvation Army
Well, hey, that’s a win!
yay!!! that is something to be thankful for indeed
You’re too funny.
hey ce — how’s cleveland tonight?
other mrs brown
I’m in southeast PA until Saturday morning. Will be In Philadelphia tomorrow night. Cold and clear here.
Hi! Merry Christmas to you. Too hard to type on iPhone and too late to stay. Will check in soon.
i knew that — sorry for my brain fart. how was your drive?
Godfather II just won’t end. Night everyone.
g’nite ce — happy dreams
Happy travels, Christine…! ;-)
Have ya been following Gnome de plume’s journey’s in the Seychelles…?
Even I’m jealous…! ;-)
Okay serious question. Want to submit resume for job that corresponds to life but not work. Is it ok to write killer cover letter and include education but exclude work history, which is irrelevant anyway?
Sweet dreams, CE…!
oh jeez, tuez i don’t know the answer to that. i’ve never applied for a job where i needed to do a resume. back in the day, i filled out an application at the pd
So tomorrow, Suz, my main mission will be obtaining an external keyboard…! *sigh*
should be a fairly easy search tut — keyboards are now easily available at all sortsa stores. they now make them with a usb plugin but i’m so old school that my emergency keyboard has the old kinda desktop plug so i’ve got an adaptor in case i want to plug it into my laptop
What irks me the most is that it’s my own damn fault, Suz…! ;-)
see what i mean about being old school — never even thought of that
Thinking about it for my FB & Google chats, tuez, I’d inadvertently spilled water on my laptop keyboard, so I have to use the on screen keyboard to peck out my responses…!
sorry to be fading early tonight pups but i am… thank you for letting me hang out with ya tonight
g’nite all — happy dreams. its only 364 days until christmas and people already have decorations up
Can I ask one more dumb question? Does anyone have any idea why I can’t get youtube to work? Netflix works fine, other vids work fine but youtube, not happening. This crosses platforms so i did cold boot modem and router.
Sweet dreams, Suz…!
Night, suzzzz …. Be well
That bites, tuez, I just watched Suz’s clip, and the Better Half was aghast at the cheeky Brits(I was rolling)…! ;-)
