On the First Day of Christmas...

... my True Love didn't show up for the blind date but sent along a Pete Postlethwaite lookalike in his stead. He looked and sounded like him, even worked as a miner once but didn't have the charisma, talent or a job. He tried to hold my hand, persuade me to invite him back to mine for wine and whatever, bundle me into his car when I was parked only a few yards away and snog me on the street. I suspect he also attempted to follow me home but I took the precaution of going straight to Darbsters where I remained in the sanctuary of his sofa for the next 2 hours, my mobile phone switched off.
I'm not sure Pretender Pete liked me so much as simply couldn't resist the lure of the new specs.
In other news, my garage ceiling fell in.
This is Cherrypie, in hiding, decidedly Brassed Off.

Oh cool specs Cherry Pie. What an interesting date you had and life you live. You look very pretty Cherry Pie. Your smile is very contagious!

So Imposter Pete was mesmerized by that gorgeous smile, but you were less than enamoured...

I think I can guess what snogged means, but what's Darbster's? The local pub?

A snappy tale as usual, CP, although perhaps not the ending you might have hoped for...

At least your new glasses allowed you to see him for what he really was.

my reaction, cherrypie, is YUK. there are things definitely worse than no date, and this sounds like one of them.

ww's comments are quite witty today.

last(ly), you're looking quite fine!

Ahem. It's not the first day of Christmas yet, so it's clearly your own fault. Expectations set too high.

Nice glasses though.

OOOO you look like one of those posh lady newsreaders - very chic - no wonder he couldn't keep his intentions to himself! - I quite like Pete Poth, but not to touch ;o)

I am beginning to think that life in your part of the world is lived to different rules to those followed elsewhere. I saw little evidence of this on my recent visit, but was unable to visit the larger urban areas.
Is "my garage roof fell in" to be taken as it reads, or is there some bizarre euphemism in play?
I thought Dave was a little killjoy back there, but let's be kind and recognise that he is a professional.

Brassed off? did you say! Just enjoy this music and forget about Peter!
I hope he didn't go the Full Monty!

By the way, some birds appear to have built a nest in the top of your jacket. Thought I ought to mention it, befoer you go out. Could be embarrasing if you met anyone you were trying to impress.

Oh ugh. Blind dates. Thankfully you managed to get away unscathed.

I like the new specs, very nice! Sorry to hear about Imposter Pete :-( Still, chin up, next time it might be Imposter George Clooney/Johnny Depp/Sean Bean/Hunky bloke of your choice.

WW - Darbster is the nickname ( not of my choosing I hasten to add) of a very good friend of mine. You can read a bit more about him here

KJ - I thought you said you'd stop that

Dave - thank you for pedantically pointing that out.

Ziggi - I think I missed my vocation

Vicus - I inhabit the vast rural areas and have very little knowledge of the large urban areas either. That's why I have to make my own entertainment.
I'm still smarting a little that you didn't think to pop over for coffee.

Steg - It's a euphemism for " my garage roof really did fall in".

Ho Ho Hold on there Peter.

A Christmas Stalking!

Cream - it's one of my favourites. Thank you. And he didn't get further than a firm hand shake.

Dave - thank you once again for your helpful comment. I'm not sure what I have done to deserve such kindness.

Proper Pete - xxxxxxxx

Pamela - It was touch and go for a second.

H.A.L - Welcome. I like your way of thinking. Please continue to offer such sound advice.

You get all the best guys, CP. Why not share? You also get all the best specs. You bitch.

Hi Cherrypie! Just moved in to Blogworld road.

I thought the way you've summed up the blind date was very amusing. sounds like some of the nightmare dates I had (except for the tried to snog you part -- they never tried!). However, I also got my hubby through a blind date -- he never would have gotten the courage to ask me out if we'd never been set up!

Cheers!

Drat those new specs! Mind you, finding a place that's willing to grind lenses to fit your favourite old frames gets harder and harder it seems.
