Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
TIM’s Mid Week Miniature
This weeks figure is another Hasslefree miniature of a young lady who goes by the name of “Pulse”.
One of the nice things about Christmas is it provides a certain amount of solitude which allows me to get some modelling done with fewer interruptions. I find that if I shout out “You can’t come in!” the wife and kids think I am wrapping Christmas presents.
New Year New Job?
It’s early days but I am thinking about going back to work. For £100 an hour I will pose as a couples therapist and tell your spouse they are wrong about everything. If you think you could benefit from this service please contact me via this blog.
The Perfect Gift?
I asked She Who Must Be Obeyed if she had any idea what she might like for Christmas. “Something Silk” she replied. Knowing my luck I’m sure to have gotten the wrong colour!
This week TIM has been watching …
The sharp eyed amoungst you may have noticed that I have reversed the order between “watching” and “listening” this week. There is a reason for it.
This year Marks and Spencer produced a Christmas TV advert featuring the song “Jump Around” by the “House of Pain”. It’s a catchy tune and therefore a catchy advert and it has had me and my kids performing the moves. Badly in their case, expertly in mine!
I then pointed out to both of them that several years ago there was a TV advert using the same track involving Monks and church bells. If I ever put together my top ten adverts this would be one. Thanks to YouTube I was able to show them the advert.
The links to both are below. I will leave you to decide which one you prefer.
This week TIM has been listening to …
“Jump Around” by the House of Pain.
Needless to say following on from the above it was appropriate to listen to the official version.
As next Wednesday is Christmas Day this will be my last mid-week post for 2019 (I aim to put up a final post for the year on Saturday). Hopefully I will put a mid-week post up on New Years Day subject to how hung over I am from the night before. In the meanwhile have a Merry Christmas one and all and a Happy New Year.
Until next time.
