I didn't wash today, I may not wash tomorrow either

The greatest thing, well one of the great things, with being off this week is that I don't have to shave, wash, or in any way have to give a hairy monkeys bottom about how I look or even smell.

Ah the freedom!

I need not worry about the sock police, the fingernail inspectors, or any of the
comandantes of (personal) cleanliness.

Instead I get to sit here in my own filth with a beard like Gandalf and watch my fingers turn a lovely golden brown. It's very satisfying.

I only changed my shirt today because I got a whole load of last nights dinner down it. But I'm wearing this one tomorrow and maybe the day after too.


I did an interview for the BBC today, for their food magazine OLIVE. I didn't wash my face, I didn't brush my teeth, hell I didn't even get dressed. Thankfully for the good people at the BBC it was over the phone. My little feature thingy will be in June's edition, I'll probably remind you when it comes out.

If I remember. (Pfft you'll be getting commemorative badges done no doubt-LMM)

I was also contacted about doing a radio interview yesterday for the BBC. But I'm not so sure. The overlords pass the time of day with the radio on. They wouldn't take kindly to me airing my opinions over the airwaves. But still nice to be asked. I haven't said no, I'm ruminating (whilst stroking my beard)

Green Ink said...

That's great on the magazine coverage. But do you ever read your emails? :P

Green Ink said...

Ah, yes you do!

Manuel said...

green ink: cheers.....yes, yes I do....but not when LMM is here...she cuss's at me.....

fatmammycat said...

Darling so many congrats on the interviews. I have you and Gimmie and a few more Irish blogs down for a mention with the Trib, but I haven't heard nowt yet and I'm away for the weekend running, so if it DOES come out this weekend I cannot even tell you in advance. However I would just like to say that darling I read you every day and I love the blog, I love it like I like cheese. So enjoy the week off Manuel. You deserve it.

Manuel said...

FMC: how very very sweet of you to say so....I'll check the trib this weekend......I'm having lunch with our mutual friend tomorrow.....crikey..... drunk twice in the same week.....I couldn't cope....

bendersbetterbrother said...

Some smart hole will hear you on the radio and you'll be instantaneously outed unless they make your voice sound like Macy Gray. Well, more like Macy Gray. Only you know how being outed will impact on the job and the suits.
Nice to see mainstream media picking you up though.

Please wash and shave. And open the curtains and a window or two while you're at it. Has Ginger Gerry's soul parked itself in you or something? Ginger Gerry out, Smelly Manuelly in. Coincidence, I think not.

Manuel said...

BBB: bwahahahahaha actually my facial hair has a very red tinge to it......re the bbc thing you are of course correct.....the suits/jeans and shirts people wouldn't be happy.......I'll save it til I quit...

Green Ink said...

What FMC said, with little edible flowers on top.
Ah fuck. I just can't do food metaphors.

Old Knudsen said...

Interviewer: so you get people's food and complain about them on-line then?

Manuel: yes but in a witty way.

Interviewer: hmmm sure you do, now tell us about Old Knudsen.

You dirty wee man, start bragging when you haven't wiped yer arse for 2 weeks,(I'm on week 8)

Umm, ew?

Anonymous Boxer said...

I call this "Dirt Ball Day" in my life - I just tell myself 100 years ago daily showering was merely a dream... and then I go back to sleep.

Enjoy your free time!

MJ said...

Personal hygiene interferes with blogging time.

Carry on.

Rosie said...

surely LMM will put a stop to this slovenly behaviour? for the sake of her own health if not yours?

i did a radio interview in my knickers on tuesday. apparently i got it wrong, you're supposed to picture your audience in their knickers when you're nervous, not strip down to your own. i wonder could the listeners tell?

savannah said...

why are your fingers turning golden brown, sugar? *arched eyebrow*

dave said...

Savannah - That'll be the increase in Manuel rolling more ciggies than normal due to the extra free time. That drum tobacco with no filter plays havoc!

sheepworrier said...

I bet you sniff your armpits with a sense of satisfaction too, you dirty brute!

You should do the BBC interview in your best Julian Simmons impression.

conortje said...

ah man you reek, I can get it from here!

Gypsy said...

This is one of those occasions when I am grateful I live on the other side of the world. Poor LMM.

Mudflapgypsy said...

You'll be writing a bloody book next.
Yet more excuse to not wash and lie about in your underwear all day.

You are just sitting about feeling insecure and wanting the phone to ring with another journo who will hand on your every word.

Pull youerself together man, ring them first! ;-)

Mudflapgypsy said...

Ah fook, if I would only speck my chelling once in a while.

Conan Drumm said...

Famous AND smelly, are you sure you're not really old Knudie in disguise?

querniery of clernier said...

What is it with boys?

After 2 weeks you don't actually get any dirtier....it's true, not that I have tried it or anything....

Native Minnow said...

At least wash your socks. You don't want to smell like dirty feet, even if you're not showering.

Manuel said...

Greenie: no you cant but I get the point, cheers....

Knudsen: pfft! you wish.....on both accounts....

Camsavwin: you, from all the smoking....what were you thinking....

Boxer: ah happy days....

MJ: correct....

Rosie: she does and she has....knickers eh.....me too....eh I mean boxers....obviously....

Savannah: smoking!!

Dave: correct!

Sheepo: "and now on the well done fillet.....""

Conortje: manly eh?

Gypsy: yeah yeah you wish.....

Muddy: no, I'm staying under my rock waiting for them.....

Conan: bwahahahaha he wishes....

Quinny: it's true and you knows it....

Minnow: new pair everyday.....

INNER VOICES said...

a week off. how nice it is... enjoy! hope you at least get a drunk on once before ten a.m.

savannah said...

thank you, dave...i was a bit worried with the no washing, etc... ;-)

daisyfae said...

did a phone interview for a trade magazine in my undies while still in bed. since i was on the hotel phone (it had a cord!?!?!?) i couldn't go pee during the conversation. which i would have, if it hadn't been for the cord.

vacations = dirtball. enjoy it!

lorraine@italianfoodies said...
