twelve part time jobs

eleven guys all ouph-ing,

ten heartbeats beating,

nine pumped up teammates,

eight busty porn mags,

seven punch per punches,

six bowls of ramen,


four blu-ray discs,

three headaches,

two limiters,

and a sweet coffee jelly dessert!

Happy Holidays, Everyone!

David Tennant and Ben Miller

They play brothers in What We Did On Our Holiday, and I seem to have a healthy supply of photos with the two of them together from the past few years.  Looks like fun!

David’s just an incredible actor, isn’t he?  He’s absolutely brilliant.  I had lots of rows with him in the film which was great fun.  A lot of the film is improvised, so that was especially good fun because he’s also very, very funny. He’s got a really wicked sense of humor, and he’s very sharp and he’s very quick as well.  You watch him acting and you think, “God David Tennant’s good, isn’t he?”

I loved rowing with David Tennant, it was really good fun because he always had a better comeback than I did - whatever I said, he would top it and that’s the kind of argument you want to have, where the other person won’t back down.  He was just fantastic.

PHOTOS - Festive Throwback Thursday: David Tennant & Catherine Tate In Nan’s Christmas Carol 

Today’s festive collection of photos comes from David Tennant’s appearance as a ghost in the 2009 Catherine Tate Show special Nan’s Christmas Carol.

Originally shown on BBC One on Christmas Day 2009, the show focused on just one of Catherine’s comic creations, foul mouthed pensioner Joannie Taylor, aka Nan.

The comic retelling of the Dickens classic A Christmas Carol saw Joan casting her northern relatives out on the street on Christmas Eve after which she is visited by four ghosts overnight: her dead husband Jake (Dominic Coleman), the Ghost of Christmas Past (Ben Miller), the Ghost of Christmas Present (David Tennant) and the Ghost of Christmas Future (Roger Lloyd-Pack). David Tennant’s Ghost is a flamboyant, metrosexual blend of Russell Brand and Serge from Kasabian, wearing Giorgio Armani and Paul Smith, he’s “…up to the minute, constantly changing, ever evolving yet always on trend.” Needless to say, Nan is far from impressed.

my nan told me at christmas that her cousin was married to the actress pauline quirke, as if this was not something that I needed to know about. 25 years have passed with not one mention of this. until a few years ago I had always believed I was related to a woman who had died trying to save people from a house fire, memorialized with a fountain at the museum gardens in bethnal green. that is one of many now-thought-to-be complete fantasies originating with one of my great granddads. not a lie that there was a woman and a fountain, but that she was a relation of ours. but I am ex-related by marriage to pauline quirke.

also, I’m convinced 99% that the actor who plays (? idk, been a while since I’ve seen it) lee carter in eastenders was in my reception class. there were about 10 of us in that class and he’d left by the end of year 1, which is why there is an element of mystery, but I have the class photo with the boy I believe to be him.
