By a rather odd memory lapse, despite having been keeping tabs on Troubled Diva’s Comic Relief Blogger’s Disco (which will be VERY popular having now been linked from the Observer Blog), Red Nose Day has kinda snuck up on me.
It has snuck up on Louise as well, as evidenced by her response to the usual Friday morning question of
“what are we doing tonight?”
“Well Comic Relief is on, you don’t want to watch it, do you?”
“Oh crap, I’d forgotten!”
I should pause at this juncture and point out that it was my beloved wife who suggested Disco Inferno for the aforementioned Blogger’s Disco, just so the record is straight. I digress.
What’ll actually happen tonight is that we’ll open a bottle of wine, or two, and watch some of the hilarity unfold. Under duress of course, I mean it’s just NOT the done thing to have all this goodwill and charity shoved down our throats, is it?
Mind you, and maybe it’s just me, but there is a distinct lack of “red events” going on today. Not a thing to be seen whilst wandering to get my lunch, nor on the train this morning, .. bar two ladies with red highlights, hardly the comedy highlight of the day (that honour goes to a co-worker who.. well it was a whole left hand, right hand mix up, long story).
In saying that, it is worth remembering that it’s all for charity. So don’t let the enforced humour stop you from donating. Hey, if anything tonight manages to top Lee Evans in the recent Tsunami Comic Aid gig, then they’ll have earned their donation money.
