Boll and I are handing Peacock Towers over to friends as we head north. We may be tweeting but won’t be blogging. Normal Peacockshock services will resume in 2011. We wish you a Moggy Christmas and a Fluffy New Year.
I’m presenting It Was A Dark And Stormy Night (rpt) about the mad Victorian novelist behind that line (with Hertford and Knebworth connections) on BBC Radio 4 at 11.30 pm GMT on Thursday 23 December. Listen, or I’ll arrange for you to be haunted.
A BAA chap just apologised on the radio for the fact that Heathrow Airport’s virtually shut thanks to a bit of snow. He added that they were doing their best to rectify this, ‘going forward’.
Business people are always ‘going forward’ I’ve noticed, even if they’re going backwards.
Do they say, ‘I’m reversing the car, going forward’ I wonder?
Probably, going forward.
Anyway, as I write, Heathrow’s still at a standstill, going forward.
I must stop this, going forward.
