Aggie and Shuggie 17

 

Ah, as Shuggie ere agin. Oor Jim's still aff oan is vishun quest or whiteffer so Ah thought Ah'd fill in fer im an dae a wee refyoo af too thoosanan-eight. Whit cun Ah say aboot thas year? It were pish whit wi credit crunchies an raisin prices, Ah've hud tae resort tae takin books outa oor locul library masel. Sad days. But it wasne aw doom un gloom an 08. At least Americcy goat a shiny new pressydent – Ah think that Lewis bloke frae Hamilton'll dae a great joab noo e's dun wi gokeart racin. Oh an we aw goat t'see tha Deark Knight filum – tha wis no bad. Pity that bloke whit played The Joker had t'go an kick the bucket. Stull, e went oot wi a bang. Mibbe eel get a post-dated Oascar next year. An then t'feenish the year in style did the prince o tha dramaitic ………. pause no go an shuffle aff thas mortal coil oan Chrismas Eve. Tha wis affie sad. Stull, at least BBC4 wull proabably huv a retrospectacle ur sumhin. That'll be gud. Summat tae luk forrad tae.

Anywise Ah've goat the muther un faither aff a hangower thus mornin an Ah needs tae get sobert up so Ah cun enjoy ma swally t'night so Ah'll leaf it thur an wish yes aw a haepy and proasperus too thoosanan-nine … jist dinne get yer opes up, eh? Noo ye’ll ave t’hexcuse me – Ah’ve a hurgent call t’make oan the porcelin tellingbone.

Thanks for starting the New Year with a laugh (or two or three or more). Begin as you expect to continue!

Happy New Years!

Aggie and Shuggie , happy new year. I'm fortunate to have been one your topics for 2008.

Jim, I wish you all the best, May you be more successful this 2009. If you publish your second book. I'll buy. Happy new year!

Jim, I'm slightly concerned by the schizophrenic nature of your Aggie and Shuggie posts, lol!
Happy New Year, I look forward to reading you in 2009.

Jim Murdoch said...

Happy 2009 to one and all. I'll be back in the driving seat on Monday marginally refreshed unlike Shuggie who is so refreshed it's just not true.

Dave King said...

Difficult for one hung-over to comment on another in the same condition. I'm sure I shall see it as brilliant as ever, all in good time. In the meanwhile, a very good New Year to all three of you.

Thanks for filling in for Jim, Shuggie and Aggie, and Happy New Year to you. Looking forward to hearing from Jim again, and I'll bet your spell checker will be relieved as well.

Dave, Jasko, Susan and Terry - Happy New Year to all of you. Normal service - or at least what passes for normal around here - will be resumed on Monday.

The use of 'Vision Quest' is very funny :)

Yeah, Ken, and my spirit guide is a horny backed toad called Eric.
