Okay so not the top story of the night, but the strangest.
Fizz has figured out a way to find out how John is doing behind bars, so she buys a card and gets Lloyd to sign it in the hopes that John won’t send it back unopened. When Sally sees this, she has a few nasty words with Fizz on the street and continues the Fizz kvetching back in the factory, much to the annoyance of all and sundry.
Later, in a brownshirt-esque move, she lifts the book that Roy had given to Fizz and cuts it to shreds. Her reasoning is revenge because ‘John cares more about books than he does people’ – that’ll learn ‘im! (This being the same woman who moved mountains to get Rosie into ‘Awkhill’ because learning was the key to success.).
This move on Sally’s part for me was not just mean spirited, but really, kind of creepy.
One Flew Over the Cuculus Canorus’ Nest
Ramsey comes into the shop bearing gifts…namely a bottle of Norris’s favourite single malt scotch. Emily and Rita think this would be lovely to share with the church cakes Emily has brought in for one and all, but Norris denies enjoying the scotch and after a few nasty words to Ramsey goes off to the back in a huff.
Rita then calls for a break and the three head over to Emily’s house for a break and decide to dig into the cake that Emily had brought back for Norris. When Norris arrives and finds that a) Ramsey’s in da house b) His cake has been eaten and c) there is no room for him to do his ‘Soodooko’ he is OUTRAGED! Outraged enough that he wildly throws about latin and calls Ramsey a cuckoo.
Readers, it was a bit too much for the delicate nature of your correspondant, so I had to pause the PVR for a bit while I calmed down with some porridge and Austrian Christmas music.
Oh, and this Lame-o Storyline
The entire family is convinced that David arranged the break-in of Audrey’s house and he denies it completely. He gets so wrapped up in his arguement that he slips when someone asks how he could have done this to his own grandfather, by replying, ‘Look, I didn’t even know he was going to be there!’.
So once again David is being shunned by the family and Tina wants nothing to do with him.
Wash, rinse, repeat.
