Heh! Almost as bad as Bono and his prattling about a bird with a leaf in her mouth. It's beak, you daft leather-trousered muppet! Beak!

Edit: Just watched the bird with thumbs, so cute! I'm a fool for an ugly baby bird and this was a prime example. Strangely though I have a total aversion to Rod Stewart, who looks as much like a baby seagull as anyone ever has.

Not you! Bono! Anyway, I'm sure you'd never be tempted to try on any of his ill-advised get-ups

(Don't be alarmed by the swift reply, I'm not stalking you. Was just on updating previous post )

Ah Bono. I bought that Zooropa cd. I still don't know what it's about. Let me try to figure that out now.

Ack!! I may never eat cake again - that is just wrong on so many levels. And why is he wearing a bow-tie and a Mexican hat?? Now that is an 'ill-advised get up'.

Although.... 'U2 plays Marriachi' might actually make 'Where the streets have no name' bearable - or at least amusing. Very Happy

You're right about the bearded vulture, when I actually went and looked at baby seagulls they look nothing like him. There's a baby bird somewhere that he reminds me of though...whilst I was looking I found these three which sort of fit the bill but unfortunately they caught sight of the Bono Cake and were horribly traumatised

Well thank you very much. As I sit here nibbling my bug cake how the hell am I supposed to choose between "I heart Bono" and "Mrs Bono" knickers?
They are both so absolutely perfect..... Confused

I think Bono actually wears the "I heart Bono" knickers, in a special leather version natch. Imagine the squeaking noise when he's prancing about. And thus he is never able to creep up on someone (luckily)

I've not seen Little Voice, heard good things about it though. I have to watch a film in french tonight to keep up with my adult education classmates :/ I wouldn't mind but in my experience french films always have no proper endings and leave me feeling I've wasted 2 hours of my life. In french. The only exception to this is A Town Called Panic, an animated, extremely surreal comedy which made me laugh till I cried. It's still on now and then on Film4 - I heartily recommend it. (It does have subtitles in english but you hardly need them, a bit like Magic Roundabout)

I won't imagine a squeaking Bono, I just won't!

Greenthumb-Little Voice was a good film indeed! I enjoyed Ewan McGregor's pigeon fancier.

Unomusette- I am going to have to look for A Town Called Panic. Which French film did you have to see the other night?

I went on a Cillian Murphy film fest this week and saw Red Lights and Intermission. Anyone seen those?

I've not seen either of those films, sorry. I'm not really a huge fan of films, I've recorded loads from the telly but never get round to watching them. The last one I saw was Skeleton Key which had a really good ending and made you think back over the whole thing and see it differently. It did have that dreadful woman Kate Hudson in it, who's currently latched on to my rightful husband (Matthew Bellamy out of Muse), but all in all I quite enjoyed it.

A Town Called Panic is a massive laugh, here's a link to the trailer
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3uG8LLuVPQ
Edit: actually you can watch the whole film from there, there's a link on the right hand side, 2nd one down

The french film I had to watch was The Big Picture, it was about a man who accidentally killed his wife's lover, took on his identity and started a new life. Must confess I fell asleep half way through (well, after a bottle of red wine it was quite a strain trying to make sense of it - they spoke spectactularly fast and even the subtitles couldn't keep up). If you are going to watch french films I must warn you against Home and Private Fears in Public Places. No obvious endings at all and a total waste of everyone's time. The second one is quite pretty to look at though, Paris in the snow, and it does have some funny moments.

Mmm...who mentioned red wine?....slurp...well it is Christmas....

I record loads too, but who has the time to see them all? I am quite happy to have 2 good recommendations (Skeleton Key and A Town Called Panic) though Wink

Watched Velvet Goldmine last night. Took me ages to get around to that one! That one came out when I was 16 or so!

Ah Matt Bellamy, yes. Who could have foreseen they would be a couple? It is bizarre. I never pass up a chance to dvr a Muse concert, I get transfixed watching him play guitar, and then I ponder how I can love music so much yet have no talent for instruments Smile

Dat's all right, though. Bit of butter loaf cake will cheer us up.

Butter...loaf...cake... OMGZZ, sounds delicious, a holy trinity of yumminess in fact. Send some over if there's any left please, I'm starving. And because it's nearly Christmas surely no calories will stick?

Sorry. Wink

French films that aren't all angst and existentialism - how about 'Les Visiteurs' ? (not the vile US remake)

^bwaaahahahahaaaaa! So true! Poor Bono, good thing he'll never read any of this. Just hope nobody on HIS website is dissing the divine Neil


Haven't come across Les Visiteurs - will keep an eye out for it. Currently watching Nigel Slater and feeling increasingly peckish. Nearly tea time
Very Happy

Right, so you take me for a cannibal is that it? Nearest I'd get would be gnawing the limbs off a gingerbread man. I could just go one of them now in fact, and all I have is some elderly digestive biscuits. Le sigh.

Never mind - home made chilli later and a bucket or so of cheap french red wine. And NO french films, huzzah!

Do you? Well you have him and I'll have his kitchen and garden stuffed with yummy things then. After all, he won't be needing them if you're keeping him busy and it's too fab to leave to the spiders. I might leave you some tasty nibbles for when you come up for air...... Wink

Ooo, ta for the butter loaf cake *stuffs face with cake happily* Scrumptious.

Loved that Heston series, it was massively clever. But in his new one he insists on making enormous versions of things which is just plain weird. I might be slightly adventurous this Chrimbo and try baking a big ham in coca cola. It's meant to be lovely but that's when a professional does it - lord knows the oddity that'll emerge from my oven....

Darn it! My useless hotmail didn't tell me you'd posted that so I missed the reindeer cookies, how very vexing!

Hope it was a good chrimbo and new year all round - I did try the ham in coca cola and it was a huge success, really yummy and highly recommended (and best of all, dead easy to make). I was a bit disappointed though about how much the ham shrank while it was boiling, it lost about half its body weight. So that's my first bleat of the year.

I'm off to try and make up for the lost reindeer cookies with beer and crisps, it's a hard job but someone has to do it.
