I have recently been pondering the amount of negativity over in the Room 101 thread, and thought it was about time that we had somewhere to post those things we quite like. The title of the thread only came to me when I watched Stephen Fry on the BBC version of Room 101 this weekend, and he wanted to put Room 101 itself into Room 101, as it was all a bit negative. He proposed creating a Room Lovely, into which he put Macintosh computers and Kathy Burke.

So, this is a place where you can list some of the things that you quite like.

Eg, that gentle glugging sound that a wine bottle makes when you're pouring the first glass, but before any wine has come out.

Also, when lorry drivers thank each other by indicating right, then left then right again after one has overtaken the other.
When you're younger, you can eat what you like, drink what you like and still climb into your 26 inch waist trousers and zip them closed. Then you reach that age, 24, 25, when your muscles give up, they wave a little white flag and then without any warning at all, you're suddenly a fat bastard.

I'd like to put Room 101 into Room Lovely. Without that where else can one vent ones fury at the likes of Anthea Turner and Jamie Oliver?

Also, whilst I'm at it can I put in the cold side of a pillow, laughing so much you cry, walking in fresh snow and eventually obtaining meaningful results from experiments that have become so tedious that after the nth repeat you have lost the will to live.

I saw that too :lol:

What would I put into Room Lovely?

Coca cola and crisps obviously... What? Stop looking at me like that.

Okay for my real entries for Room Lovely:
  • The Chinese take away up the road.
  • Telly programs on forensics (including CSI and Dexter).
  • Modern telecommunications like mobile telephones and tinterweb (uhm... the internet).

[*]The Chinese take away up the road.

I'm a fan of Chinese food but after reading a recent documentary I learned in a majority of restaurants 'the cola ' is fried.

I don't trust my local Chinese restaurant near me. Do you trust yours?

I advise the cheap way out which will not only save you money, but it will save you from heart attacks, strokes and diabetes.

Order a Water!

Things that make me happy:

Saturday Mornings
Otters, seals, penguins etc
Celebrities with pancreatic cancer
Sometimes when we see the eyes- those horrible times when we see the eyes,eyes that ... that have no soul - then we know a darkness.

A glass of milk & a chocolate digestive before going to bed.

Hearing "What A Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong being played.





These are a few of my favourite things.

Sky's Gillette Soccer Saturday, with the godlike Jeff Stelling. Yes, I'm like a pig in shite spending two hours watching Paul Merson or Phil Thompson shouting "oooohhh no, 'e's missed an open goal!!!" as they gaze at an unseen TV monitor, and I'm only ever so slightly embarrassed to admit it.

why, you little...

Well that makes two of us.
Im afraid it is a ritual if Im not working. I make bloody sure that Im laying, prone, on the Sofa listening to the finest TV anchor man in the country. Stelling is class.
Everything has to fit around it, luckily Lady FN is quite a fan of it too.

That makes 3 of us. I never thought I'd be peas-in-a-pod with Saturday-afternoon couch spuds 'arry and the missus, but (when I had Sky, which I don't these days) I used to wait with bated breath (almost, twixt-spliff) for the Hartlepool score. I recall when they got sent down (forget which season, it was fairly recently), and the gradually-unfolding drama of Jeff Stelling's personal tragedy was the best entertainment on telly for years!
And, whilst I'm here and vaguely on-topic, Soccer AM. Lovely.

Make that a quartet.

Stelling, all by himself, made a relatively household name of an obscure Scottish lower division striker in Kenny Deuchar.

I also watched Soccer Saturday to see if we'd be promoted to the Championship vs Leicester in 2005. I well remember Stelling's introduction... "There's been a crucial goal at the Walkers Stadium..."


Ray Stubbs, on the other hand, should be banished to the hell that is Room 101's dungeon for inept, fat, incompetent smug w**nkers.

The glorious "take" after casting to a rising fish
The adrenalin rush from a big fish on the line
The endorphin buzz after a tough gym session
The first pint at a rugby international
A good sing song
Fishing huts
Cobwebs dripping with dew
Chewing the fat with mates
Any newt anywhere

Lots of smells: bacon butties, geranium leaves, salt air at the seaside, candy floss, wax polish, the metallic smell of rain


..... and thick, tasty gravy
Ring down the curtain, the farce is over

Once again Madame, exquisite taste.
I do find, however, that unless they are thoroughly cooked for at least 1hr 30mins at 200 degrees celsius, they can be a little tough on the palette.
