Well Red Nose Day is all over and done with for another year. Quite frankly, I did my utmost best to avoid it like as much as possible yesterday. For starters, I didn't wear a red nose, or do anything silly with my hair and/or face yesterday. Although I bought myself two Red Nose Day 2019 T-shirts from TK Maxx (one with Mickey Mouse on and one with Eeyore on), I didn't wear either of those at all yesterday. Still I can wear those ordinarily in the summer. I didn't even one of my older Red Nose Day or Sport Relief T-shirts yesterday either.
Furthermore, just like in 2017, I didn't bother watching ANY part of the Red Nose Day 2019 TV show on BBC One last night (before or after the news). Nor did I watch any part of Comic Relief Does University Challenge from 22:00 to 22:35 on BBC Two. Having slavishly watched the Red Nose Day TV shows every odd-numbered year from 2003 to 2015, and each time, found them predominantly a load of stupidity and tommyrot, with hardly any pop songs, I made the firm decision not to watch it last night. The content of those years, particularly 2013 and 2015, was enough to put me off wanting to watch, in whole or in part, the Red Nose Day TV show in 2017, and again this year (2019). Having not watched this year's show, I can't express an opinion on it. That also explains why I wasn't here expressing my likes and dislikes about the acts / sketches that appeared as the evening progressed, and why I wasn't posting the amounts raised by, for example, TK Maxx (from the sale of RND 2019 T-shirts), Sainsbury's (from the sale of red noses, wristbands, etc) or the national running totals which must have been announced from time to time. Nonetheless, I've since looked through this thread, and noticed Josh posted the amounts raised by British Airways, TK Maxx, Sainsbury's, etc, and national running totals; thank you for doing so.
This morning I found out from the Comic Relief website and BBC Red Nose Day page that the official end-of-night total was £63,548,668. Well done to all those who helped raise that much money.
I wonder what TumbleTower has found to watch instead tonight?
Nothing actually. In fact I didn't power up my TV or video recorder at all yesterday. I'm very selective in my viewing.
