A festive (ish) Christmas Eve podcast. It was supposed to be a festive (ish) Christmas Eve’s Eve podcast, but since it’s the holidays the washer / dryer broken down last night. Instead of recording the show I was taking apart a large electrical appliance and poking at its insides as if I had any idea about what was going on in there.

So you get a Christmas Eve show. Hope you’re having a good one. I’m basically trying to figure out how to deal with a bucket full of dirty cloth nappies. Merry Christmas!

I was going to say that I forgot what it was like having a child at nursery, bringing every possible illness and infection back to the home. But I never forgot. I just blanked it out. So, today, I’m choked with the cold and surviving on generic brand Lemsip. Or rather “Max Strength Cold and Flu Relief Lemon Flavour Power for Oral Suspension”. Yum.

Anyway, because of that and other reasons. with the exception of the introduction this is a chat free show. Check out the list below for links to where you can buy and download all the tracks featured. Hopefully next week my head will be back to normal and a proper show will be possible once more.

Seeing as how many of my old computers and games consoles don’t work too well with modern TVs I was excited to see a 22 inch Sony Trinitron going for free on Facebook.

Went around to collect it and it turned out that it was a 29 inch monster. Nearly broke myself and the women who I collected it from getting it down the stairs and into the passenger seat of our (tiny) car. The service manual I found on the internet says that it’s 43kg… that’s nearly 100 lbs.

So, the TV sat in the car for days and days until I bit the bullet and hired a moving trolley to get it into the house. Good news is that it works. Now for a bit of Sonic…
