Not Doctor Ted, arriving at a computer screen near you soon, possibly.


Feeling the rashly self- hyped ,self-induced ,weighty burden of expectation surrounding my forthcoming play/story /Tv series/Hollywood blockbuster, 'Doctor Ted' ,I have decided to subtly distance my masterpiece totally from any unfavourable comparison to the much loved hit TV series, 'Father Ted', by changing the name to' Not Doctor Ted or anything like Father Ted the smash hit Tv series' This is, after all , just a blog, not RTE or the BBC and things are by the very nature of the medium supposed to be here today gone tomorrow , mere candy floss, vinegar and rain soaked fish and chip paper for the transient ethereal ethernet times we drift through, gutterbound and forgettable. So it would be silly to put any pressure on myself,particularly in my present weakened state, balanced on the cusp of feeling the steel of the blade of the grim reaper(and I don't mean Mary Harney) 'Not Doctor Ted or anything like Father Ted the smash hit Tv series' remains though a true masterpiece and is without doubt the greatest piece of wrting of any kind produced since the dawn of time.


Shite, I think I may have done it again.

The visual suggests Dr. Todd, as in Sweeney.

since before the dawn of time more like, dont sell yourself short.. Uiscebot

Such a fascinating collection of prescriptive remedies! As a steady rain falls outside my window, cleansing my spirit with tranquility, I calmly wait with great anticipation for your explanation of these medicinal tools. Jeanne

wv: gintili: He drank the gintili realized the uisce served as the better healer. Jeanne

wow, can't wait, gonna buy some popcorn and everything. Mrs Niamh


Good to see you back on EEjity form.. and with such an aesthetically pleasing hammer!...
Look forward to hearing not dr ted or anything like father ted..... will it have a nurse in it, not nurse Doyle or anything like mrs Doyle?.. with a catch phrase like; "won't you have a little internal... aaahhh, gowannn... you will.. just a little internal.. or maybe an intra-veinous..."..
You can have merchandise and everything! The Wonderful Watercats

So glad you're back! Was feeling real mean for teasing about man 'flu when you've clearly been REALLY poorly man. It's funny what dark moments it takes for us to appreciate the light in the littlest things isn't it? Hope you hold that beauty in your heart & continue to get your strength back.x Sara


I think we have the makings of a great piece of artwork here, TFE. Just look at the colours and the form! This one will be a hit at the gallery, to be sure.

Self exploratory surgery is best performed drunk ,so I'll leave it for now,Steven.Enjoying the med though, thanks :)

Like your style Uiscebot, keep away from them coppers now!

Janey Mac I feel calm just listening to you, Jeanne,and I love the idea of the coyotes singing along to your oboe(Stinging fly) can you really play that and the harp? such talent! :)


Hey ,Mrs Niamh, forget the popcorn just make sure you get the everything -and plenty of it ! :)
Oh, and a drink or ten might help.

Yes, Watercats, it is indeed a very anaesthetically pleasing hammer - a real knockout!Your script is far better than mine already!By the way i put the(deseved) 'wonderful' in front of watercats they are too modest to be so presumptuous. :)

So right, sara, the tiniest pin prick of light is blinding in the depths of darkness :)Thank you.

Hey ,Kat, you makin' an offer? :)

Hello ArtSparker, now THAT'S funny! :))

No toothache, thanks Weaver,I pulled all my teeth out with the pliers:)

Cool, Willow, cool! :)

We are eagerly awaiting your masterpiece and as I am probably the oldest of your bloggy friends I am taking it upon myself to forbid you to put yourself under any sort of pressure. The only reason for you writing anything right now, is that it provides occupational therapy and gives you pleasure.

Niamh B said...

everything sounds good, and yes that sure was the most messed up comment list I've ever read. Ya eejit!!

Enjoyed Dr Ted though, totally lived up to all the hype.

Jeanne Iris said...

Thanks, TFE...Yes,I do play the oboe and harp, both made of rosewood. Oh, and yes, occasionally, the coyotes really do howl when I play...don't know if that's a good sign or not. : )
