I had my work Christmas party last Friday night. I returned home just after 1:00 AM slightly under the weather but still able to stand up. When I turned on the TV, Bond was on a "mercy flight" in a helicopter about to attack Piz Gloria with the help of Draco's men. I managed to watch the rest of the film before crashing.
The film was part of a "Bond-a-thon" being shown on free-to-air TV
to coincide with the release of "Skyfall". Previously the films were being shown as a double-bill every Saturday night, the first starting at 6:30 PM and the second around 10:00 PM. But with Christmas coming up they changed the night and time of the films. So the schedule change resulted in "You Only Live Twice"starting at 8:30 PM and "OHMSS" starting at 11:00 PM. I'm really not sure how
many other people were still watching when the film finished just before 2:00 AM !
Over the weekend I managed to drop into Benn's Books in Bentleigh. There are no new Bond paperbacks I need at present but I still like looking at what's in stock. Benn's Books had some "Young Bonds".
