Last year Razzi wrote his End of Year Address and so this year I thought I would bully my way in and write mine. As the years pass by I do find that I get more and more sentimental. Ask Chimpton, I blubber at anything these days be it films, news or just thoughts jumping around in my head. For some unknown reason I just seem to get sentimental more of the time. I actually got choked up recently when a youth stood up on a bus to give an elderly lady his seat. It was just a basic gesture of kindness and there I was holding back, maybe not the tears, but definitely the feelings and this has been happening so much more frequently recently. When it first happened I thought it was a temporary thing and that my spirits would eventually re-harden returning me to my previous toughened, cynical state. I am still waiting.
First of all, I know its not thursday but everything is up the pole with christmas && tha so have wrote this for Davidd && i dont know what day hes gonna post it on.. I think from now on it is better if I dont have a set day && i just write me stuff && Davidd can post if when he likes cos it gets confusin tryin to do it for thursdays.. Sometimes things happen like on a friday && i have to wait a week to tell yas.. It’s better if i write about stuff when it happens && then leave it up to the boss when he wants to put it on here.. So anyways, I hope yas all had a great christmas && didn’t get too drunk && that && yas are all looking forward to new year — I’m not because I’ve been in agony!!
There is nothing we love more here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite…
For a while I thought Granny was going to get through December without performing any of her Grannyisms worth reporting on. It has been a very quiet month where Granny is concerned mostly because she hasn’t been well – contracting flu – and locking herself away so as not to pass it on to the rest of us. With hindsight I suppose it was too much to ask that she would go a whole month without causing mayhem and pandemonium – this time with a Christmas theme to it. With Christmas nearly upon us, Granny started writing lists and asking everyone if there was anything we wanted or needed. We were to let her know early so that things weren’t being rushed at the last minute.
Today we are going to ask everyone who visits Jammy Toast to just “Talk Shit” for the day. We ask that anyone who visits Jammy Toast leaves a comment on just about any subject they choose. Funny or sad, true or false, real or fake; we don’t give a shit as long as it is entertaining and doesn’t really hurt anyone. We ask you to do this because we are too busy to think of anything else to post – hopefully everyone will like the freedom to whine and bitch. The rules are pretty simple to explain – basically, anything goes!
Here at Jammy Toast we have been friends with Paddington Bear and his creator, Michael Bond, for some time now. Unfortunately, the author of Paddington Bear died in 2017 but his legacy still lives on as a new BBC documentary follows his life in “Man Behind The Bear”. Among the pudding and pies, turkey with all the trimmings, one Christmas dining table this year could well have featured marmalade sandwiches. The big day is not only Jesus’s traditional birthday, it is also Paddington’s. Paddington is like the Queen, he has two birthdays. June and December 25th are Paddington’s birthdays.
Normally on Christmas day at around 3pm we all gather round the telly and watch the Queen’s speech. She usually makes sense about what has happened during the previous twelve months or what is going to happen during the year ahead. This year however, there is a large elephant in the room as far as the Royal Family are concerned. Perhaps this year we should spare the Queen’s blushes and not rely on her in light of the events surrounding Prince Andrew’s year. Unfortunately, we haven’t got our own Queen anymore as she thinks all things Jammy Toast are embarrassing – grown-ups and teddy bears, etc. – so asking her to do a Queen’s speech like in days of old is out of the question. I often ask Chimpton to help Eddie write things for us but it never happens, so that is her and Eddie out of the question. It only leaves me to perhaps come up with a Christmas Day speech to the Toasters. So here goes…
