Christmas Is Coming

24 Aug

The X-Factor is back.

Don’t get me wrong – I’m a late convert, and I love it; but it’s a kind of modern advent calendar, because we know it will end just before Christmas – just enough before Christmas to allow the winner to have the Christmas Number One.

And The Winner Is

I couldn’t make up my mind between Matt and Rebecca all through this series of The X Factor so I was happy Matt won, but I found myself rooting for Rebecca in the final show.  She’s going to have a great career whatever happens, so I doubt she’ll be too disappointed at coming second.  Such a classy girl; look at her in her first audition:

She was never less than beautifully dressed, but didn’t give the impression that she was obsessed with her looks.  A lovely girl, inside and out.

No Spoilers Allowed

Just watched the season finale of Dexter and I am shocked and appalled.  I did not see that coming.  It was the same for last Monday’s Spooks: completely unexpected behaviour by a certain character.  All I need now is for Wagner to stay in this week’s X Factor and I’ll have my own little trinity hit.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m sorry, but I can’t tell you: I don’t mind teasers but I hate spoilers.  A certain sister-in-law once told me the ending of a 1980s’ mini-series:


‘Let me just tell you this…’

‘…No, I don’t want to know…’

‘…Yes, but she dies.’


Another sister-in-law told me who copped it in Titanic.

Come to think of it, maybe it’s not spoilers I don’t like, but sisters-in-law.*
