A potential life-changing event

Strange what some people think is important eh? Speaking to partner's brother:

Me: "US election next week."


Him: "Yeah. It's the 2nd of November eh?"


Me: "Eh no... the fourth."


Him: "So it is. I've got something important in my diary for the second though."


*thinks for a minute*

Him: "Oh yeah... the new series of Top Gear starts on the second!"


I thought he was joking until I got this text from him: "Flatmate has gone for a shower so she doesn't disturb me. Girlfriend isn't allowed to come over until 9pm after it is finished... naturally this is overshadowing election a little.

Clarkson for Prime Minister anyone?

It's an act of cruelty putting TG on at the same time as the Strictly results. I expect there's going to be ructions in some households.

Me, I like both shows, had no idea TG was back tonight and am only just back from sunny and cold Glenrothes.......

Seemingly TG showed Clarkson's big crash into the brick wall (which was deliberate) where he got severely hurt.

Far more important than the US elections!

Yeah... it was tremendously funny. Driving the lorries when Hammond's car fell out the back of the van. Great stuff! (Though I should point out that this blog does not condone crashing lorries through walls).

How was Glenrothes Caron? If you had to put a tenner on someone (as has been suggested in the press...) who'd you put it on?

Glenrothes has had several consecutive days of gorgeous sunshine.

I shall miss that drive up the A92, even if I won't miss the fortune it's costing me in petrol.....

I've only ever placed one bet in my life - on Willie Rennie to win Dunfermline.

All I know about Glenrothes is that it's going to be close.....
