Michael McIntyre – A comedians take on holidays!

It’s lovely to have a holiday.

People start thinking about them.

“Going to go anywhere nice?”

Kind of a stupid question.

“I’m going to lock myself in the loo(!) Of course I’m going somewhere nice!”

We like to go away for two weeks.

That’s standard.

Two weeks.

But we come back after two weeks and say, “The weather was good, the hotel was lovely.” “How long did you go for?”

“Two weeks.”

10 days is enough.

After 10 days, you just want to get back to your shit life. Read the rest of this entry »

Getting fit after the holidays!

I’ve been thinking about getting my shit together for a while and getting myself into shape. Motivated in part by the articles David Corder owner of the Perfect Fit Wellness Center has provided us, what better time than to tie it in with the whole New Year resolution thing – something I don’t normally do as nobody ever seems to make them stick – including myself! However, this time I’m damn well going to do it – and in order to make myself look a complete ass if I don’t (and thus provide some motivation) I intend to do it publicly on here… Warts and all if necessary!

As someone who used to be a nightclub bouncer, visit the gym regular, spend their vacations walking up and down mountains, a martial artist (Judo and Thai Boxing), and squash player three times a week I’ve really let myself go over the past 6 or 7 years – it’s like I never did all that!

Had enough of kids…?

If you are reading this on the 25th December you are probably here because you’ve had enough of kids. Here’s an idea to shut them up!

It’s obviously a fake, but for those of us with kids it sure has been tempting at times…

The kids have had enough attention and money squandered on them – enjoy the quiet whilst you are here and have a look through some of the latest gadgets!

Sick of the kids asking if it’s Christmas?

santaEasy – send them to this website and tell them to keep refreshing the page – they have no excuse to ask you again all day!

To hell with the kids why not spend your time more productively looking at the latest gadgets and treat yourself instead!

Don’t buy Christmas presents…

It will probably make me sound like some kind of Scrooge character – but, apart from my kids (and my dad this year who’s staying with us) I don’t buy Christmas presents. It seems like a total waste of money to me – and I’m more that a little tired of all the holiday marketing that seems to start earlier and earlier each year. I tell people not to buy for me but some still do – but I insist if they must that they don’t spend much money.

My wife and I since we met don’t buy anything for each other either at Christmas  or birthdays  and haven’t since we met. What’s the point, it’s OUR money we are spending and we just prefer to buy what we want and need, when we want and need it. A nice meal and each other company is usually as far as we go with most celebrations of any kind…

Back to the holidays… they have just become so over-commercialized it’s beyond belief. It seems that people all over the world get themselves into financial difficulties because of the intense pressure to spend placed on them by stores and their own family as they feel the need to equal the spend of better off family members.
