...... this is very bad. In fact it's excrutiating ...... but I said I'd do it so I am. Remind me never to film a draw EVER AGAIN!! It's so bad that I wanted to scrap it and do it again in silent movie mode, but RGH said that would be cheating. So I didn't.
A few things though .....
- I strongly recommend that you skip this horrendous clip and scroll straight down to the winners.
- I don't normally sound like that.
- I do really.
- I'm not normally such a nag.
- I am really.
- I'm so embarrassed I may never be able to blog again.
- Not really.
- But nearly.
- You may want to have some loud music playing while viewing.
- Or you could skip right down through this, as previously mentioned.
- You have been warned ......
Updated to add : Phew! I think .... it finally worked. I chopped 20 seconds off the beginning (luckily for you) but it's still 3 minutes and 14 seconds of home movie. Bad home movie. I wouldn't bother watching it if I was you.
Sorry if your number wasn't picked (it's all RGH's fault!) and if it was, can you please mail a forwarding address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll post your prize off on Wednesday.
