My name is Karl and I am a cabbie living with my elderly Auntie since the break-up with my girlfriend. I live and work around Ladbroke Grove in London, struggling to get my life back on track. My closest companion is the voice in my head, a crotchety, misanthropic alter-ego who takes the form of my inner self. He is an uncensored true version of me who says what he really thinks without the risk of offending others. As I attempt to muddle my way through life, the voice appears periodically to guide, criticise and dispense his unorthodox philosophy of life. He’s a pain in the arse and often lands me in a whole lot of trouble. These are my thoughts…
Today I thought we would share a story with you that we saw on Facebook recently. You know those annoying stories which people post that are usually made up and annoy most of the people who read them. Like us, I am sure you are fed up of reading some of those holier than thou posts and are now wondering why we would put one on Jammy Toast – let me tell you this one is different. It actually has a worthwhile message and puts a smile on your face right at the end. Forgive me if you have read it before, I just thought it contained a great message to share with you all…
Davidd has let me use today’s post to make a little personal appeal because I am having a little quandary. You see, although I love being at Jammy Toast with my other Flat Friend, Great Uncle Bimbo and all the Renault Bears, I do feel a little left out. Everyone makes me feel at home but I only have one friend of my own kind. Everyone here is a Renault bear – I would really like more flat friends or maybe a little love interest in my life as I am beginning to get a little lonely.
Latest rumours suggest that the cast of the hit sitcom Friends are to reunite for a two-hour special, according to US broadcaster NBC. The actors behind Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler and Ross have all signed up for the special – a tribute to director James Burrows. Burrows helmed numerous episodes of the programme and has just celebrated directing his 1,000th TV programme. But NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt suggested the six Friends may not appear together.
Iremember very clearly this time five years ago, I was a few days away from my 30th birthday and headed over to New York to celebrate. It was going to be the most exciting time and something that would create memories forever, 30 and in NY — what more could a girl ask for? It didn’t go quite to plan and although it was a good trip and I have some nice memories of the city that never sleeps (and is that so true) I never got to meet Prince Charming or have that birthday kiss I longed for. I did get to see the monkeys that jump into the pools in Central Park though, which was GREAT.
Today we are doing a favour for one of our Friends. Sadie, who is from Bromborough, is away at Leeds University studying Mathematics. Or at least she will be if she survives Freshers Week and getting drunk pretty much every night. Unfortunately, the other night she got drunk and left her laptop on logged into the Bears Blog. This was too much of a temptation for her friend Nicola (who was also very drunk!) and so Nicola started posting messages on the blog saying; “I am a knobhead”. Because it was on Sadie’s laptop and she had left it logged on it appeared as though the messages were in fact from Sadie calling herself a knobhead!
As Eric began his second day with us this morning, it became apparent that he has made friends with a particular Bear by the name of Ernie. Now some of you might think there is nothing out of the ordinary in that, but then that would probably be because you are too young to remember Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise.
We all go through life doing our own thing day in day out. We have our own little circle of friends that we spend time with and our outer circle who we may not spend time with but are still close friends with and who we love all the same. I have a heavy heart at the moment, my outer circle is missing a number of people who I love and miss, these people have been in my life for a number of years now and without them at times things would of been unbearable, I miss them dreadfully.
