Well, to me it feels rather strange to watch an Hogmany special on the first of December, I think it is much better on the first of January, after all, it's about the new year starting, but that's maybe just me!
And it's not my short memory, I'm far too busy to check all the thread, so I hadn't read it!
I agree with Flu here. Hogmanay is about New Year, not Christmas. And I think that during the boring month of January, it would be nice to have the 'cheerful ' Hogmany episode to look at. . After all, this thread is just about bringing us together for a fun chat .
Sorry, Maddie, I missed that you had volunteered for the December epi, too! I never had a chance to watch the October Favorite episode, so I had just glanced at the previous replies before replying myself. But I looked back, and on page 2, Reply #34 of the October Favorite thread, you did indeed say you had an idea for the December discussion. And it was on page 1, reply #13 of this thread that Paul had suggested the Hogmanay Special for January. I would like to see the Hogmanay Special (and my Golly ;D in the spooky Library scene ) again, but it doesn't matter to me in which month we see it...but, December would be great if you'd still like to do it Maddie!
Thanks for offering to switch months, Flu.

Yes, I suggested the Hogmanay one for January as that is when it occurs! However I don't really care and I had forgotten that Maddie wanted to do one for December - I am afraid my memory isnot what it used to be!!
Can someone please clarify the outcome of the above discussion for my addled mind! As I understand it now: Maddie is going to do the December one and Flu the January one; but which episode is each doing? Is Maddie doing the Haogmanay one in December or is Flu doing it in January? And is epi 2:5 to be done in the other spot?
As I say, I am confused but I am sure someone can sort it out, although I still feel that the Hogmanay epi should be after Christmas rather than before?

Same for me Paul, but I didn't know it meant that much to Maddie! So if she agrees, we'll have the Hogmany special at the beginning of December and my choice, 2:5, somewhere at the beginning of January!

[Modify] [Delete] Karina,
I think Paul meant that it was you who gave the idea for the monthly favourite episode, so it should be you then to give the epi for the month November.
I have an idea for the month December but I think we all wil chose the same epi then
I know that Maddie says the matter closed, but as it seems that I am being blamed for the misunderstanding I thought I should pass one final remark as maybe it has been my my misinterpretation of Maddie's message (reproduced above, being the only one that I could find in the October thread) in which I understood that she was only hinting at a topic (which I didn't think of as I thought that the Hogmanay one would be good for January) rather than actually intending to do it - my mistake.
In view of the fact that:
Maddie had intended offering the Hogmanay episode in December and Flu apparently does not mind which month she has
I would like to give an administrator's decision (like HG with the farmers):
Maddie to use the Hogamany episode in December and Flu to use [2:5] in January.
I hope everyone will be happy with my decision - otherwise .......
I shall (like HG) have to send the sheep to a slaughter house in Glasgow ...... LOL
LOL Paul Well if it's HG who gives me an order I will follow it without any doubts ;D
I just told you in a PM that it's all okay so for December the Hogmany epi. I only want to give you all a bit more time before we gonna start up the discussion. So it wont be the first week of December but in week 50 starting on 10th December Then we will all be a bit more in Christmas mood, the Tree will be yet in our living room, with some luck the first Christmas Cards will arrive. Thé moment to start watching Christmas and Hogmany films and series
Hope this is okay for everyone now ?
And I heard that Paul doesn't have the dvd with the Hogmany epi so I ask for a volunteer to make some screencaps out of it, which is always fun to see on the board. I can't do it myself, sorry for that.
And Flu, the New Year will start then with your choice, but I suppose you got yet a PM about it ?
However I believe that I do have a VHS Tape I made of it some years ago which I shall try to dig out from the archives!! I might even copy it on to a DVD - part of my plan 'B' !!! This way I can 'kill two birds with one stone' as they say!!
I am glad that this has been resolved and I look forward to 10th December - wow! nearly the end of another year and the board still going strong!!
Ah, yes, of course! Thanks, Flu and Maddie! I've seen that moniker on the board before and knew who it was in reference to, but seeing only the initials HG threw me! I didn't know that it was something Lexie had called Archie, I thought someone had just made it up--now that makes even more sense!!
I have the Hogmanay Special on dvd and would not mind doing the screen caps--I'll just have to train my eye to see the 'action' that's going on and not the 'scenery' as most of my caps are focussed on the house, regardless of what the actors are doing in the shot! So, please let me know if you'd like me to do them.
