Talking Bollocks

Nigel on a previous Welsh visit

Now I feel I must put the record straight now, after my somewhat unfair cut and pasting of Nigel's now infamous email of yesterday.
Despite his somewhat flowery language and snotty nosed  (tongue in cheek) on line demands, Nigel has been, as always, an easy, relaxed and welcomed guest to chez "Bwthyn-y-llan,
Last night , was a case in point.....after treating every dog to an individually wrapped doggy chews, he presented Chris with a bag of onion rings ( Chris would drop his draws for such a little treat) and kindly gave me a box of chocs ! (sod the diet!!!!)..we all sat down to a nice meal.....and as bottle after bottle of wine was finished off Chris left us to debate the most important subjects of the day
These included.....

* Discussing the kind of new Television programmes that Kirsty Allsop could front....
* The role of porn in mainstream cinema,
* Comparing the size and effectiveness of hand held weaponry from Star Trek and Blakes 7
* why are so many people affronted by art when they don't have to view or experience it?
* Alfred Hitchcock and French New Wave cinema

I could go on ( we did go on!) and as usual it was an evening that two middle aged men acted like schoolboys.
Thank you Nigel for coming, it was fun

  1. There is nothing finer in life John than an evening of fine wine and fine dining and talking complete and utter bollocks....it is very good for the soul. Glad you had a wonderful time.

  3. Any dried sparrows involved? (we're talking Pirates of Caribbean here). I love the idea of Chris dropping his drawers for something as easily attainable as onion rings.

  4. Does Chris read your blog...just asking! Talking complete and utter bollocks is FUN (especially when aided by the bottles of wine)...though now it's mainly to myself (with no alcohol) since Don is no longer here to experience and enjoy my wit (or is that craziness)!

  5. No not at all 'borrocks' (for the sake of my reputation I'm going Japanese) John, sounds like a really great boys night in x

  6. I think it's great when you and a friend can just chew the fat and be yourselves.

  7. "Why are so many people affronted by art when they don't have to view or experience it?" Absolutely. And maybe if they tried to understand it instead of ranting and raving, who knows, they might even get some pleasure out of it.

    Glad you put the record straight. I had this unfortunate image of a tyrannical guest terrorising the entire neighbourhood.

  13. Spending the evening taking bollaux (Canadians do it in two languages!) with a bottle of wine is fun....even with friends!

  19. Remember when you broke your toe John? How did you know it was broken...and what did you do about it?
    Yesterday, I smashed my toe against a stair riser (don't ask). It really hurt when I did it but then subsided. I had things to do, so stuck a shoe on and got on with my day. Well, after about an hour and a half it hurt like hell. I dashed home and sat with foot up all night. Let's just say it took some Tylenol 3 with codeine to get through the night. Today...no pain, but very swollen. Do I bother to go for the xray?

  20. Where's the pic of Chris dropping his draws? You promised me bollocks, dammit!

    I've dropped mine for less than a bag of onion rings. Ssh, don't tell Chuckles.

  21. Isn't is wonderful how easy the conversation flows with wine.

  22. re Kirsty Allsop. She may be a Lord's daughter, but until she can grasp the difference between 'Manège and Ménage, I don't think she should be allowed out to find homes for those who can't find their own. Especially not for those who have 'orses!

    Grip over.

  23. For 'grip' please read 'gripe'.

  24. Is that a Welshie we can see? Always good to find more in the country.

  25. That sounds like a fantastic evening, relaxing with an old friend.

  26. It couldn't have been so great an evening if you can remember what you talked about!

    ReplyDelete
  27. So, did Chris drop his drawers or did he get a free pass?

    ReplyDelete
  28. You have made a great attempt to "cover" for Nigel but the picture says it all! He's got the devil in him. Surprised your house wasn't surrounded by chanting hill farmers with burning torches!

  29. Yes sounds like enormous bollocks to me...
