Merry Xmas!!



I’d just like to wish a merry Xmas and happy new year to everyone who bothers to pass by.
2006 Has been a great year for me, and I’ve had loads of great feed­back from blog­gers, in itself a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion.
Next Year sees me touring with Mr Ferry, and then my book comes out, which I will be sup­porting with an exten­sive tour of my one man show.
Hope to see you there.
Cheers!
xx
Guy

    Dear Guy,
    Merry Xmas!
    And best wishes for 2007.
    Hope to see you next year in North America on your one-​​man show!

    Much love,

    Hell, if I’d known you were touring with Brian Ferry I’d have bought a ticket!

    Have a won­derful Christmas.

    Hello GP,

    I don’t cel­e­brate xmas myself but I appre­ciate the sen­ti­ment. In my house we observe Festivus every Dec23rd. We gather the family together and dec­o­rate a pole. Each person grabs the pole and then airs their griev­ances towards the others in the family. Then the head of the family is beaten down to the ground. We then have dinner and burn the pole.

    Sounds Scotish huh!?

    Anyway, Happy Festivus!

    Hello Guy,

    It now being 00:10 Christmas Day in cold, rainy Sydney,

    Please accept with no oblig­a­tion, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an envi­ron­men­tally con­scious, socially respon­sible, low stress, non-​​addictive, gender neu­tral cel­e­bra­tion of the winter sol­stice hol­iday, prac­ticed with the most enjoy­able tra­di­tions of reli­gious per­sua­sion or sec­ular prac­tices of your choice with respect for the religious/​secular per­sua­sions and/​or tra­di­tions of others, or their choice not to prac­tice reli­gious or sec­ular tra­di­tions at all.

    I also wish you a fis­cally suc­cessful, per­son­ally ful­filling and med­ically uncom­pli­cated recog­ni­tion of the onset of the gen­er­ally accepted Gregorian cal­endar year 2007, but not without due respect for the cal­en­dars of choice of other cul­tures whose con­tri­bu­tions to society have helped make our country great and without regard to the race, creed, colour, age, phys­ical ability, reli­gious faith or sexual pref­er­ence of the wishee.

    By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms: This greeting is sub­ject to clar­i­fi­ca­tion or with­drawal. It is freely trans­fer­able with no alter­ation to the orig­inal greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actu­ally imple­ment any of the wishes for her/​himself or others and is void where pro­hib­ited by law, and is revo­cable at the sole dis­cre­tion of the wisher. This wish is war­ranted to per­form as expected within the usual appli­ca­tion of good tid­ings for a period of one year or until the issuance
    of a sub­se­quent hol­iday greeting, whichever comes first, and war­ranty is lim­ited to replace­ment of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole dis­cre­tion of the wisher.

    No trees were harmed in the sending of this mes­sage.

    Its Xmas Day in Britain here at last!!! I wish you, Sir Guy, a very merry Christmas, and I wish your family, and as well, the great blog­gers of this site, a healthy, merry christmas.

    I’m ever so so sorry to bother you Mr. Pratt but I do have one ques­tion.

    It has come to the atten­tion that Brain Ferry is per­forming at Princess Diana’s Mermorial Gig at the New Wembley Stadium. Basically, all I want to know is, will you be there along­side him buddy?

    All my wishes,
    Simon J (Happy Days!)

  10. Marcus Buick - December 26, 2006 7:29 PM

    Well a Merry Chistmas and very Happy New Year to you too Guy. 2006 has been a very spe­cial year for me due par­tially (and in no small part) to you Guy Pratt. Here’s a large, tall, cold pint for ya mate!! Keep up the fan­tastic work…many of us will be watching for you in 2007! Cheers!

    All My Best,

    Marcus

    PEACEHAPPINESSHEALTH and HUGE GRINS FOR 2007
    For you, your imme­diate and extended family!

    I would love to see you per­form in any form or venue here in the States and there are many others who would as well — It would be delightful — Any plans?
    When is your book being released in America?
    Wishing you all smiles,
    Nance

  12. Simon J - December 31, 2006 5:34 PM

    Have a Great New Year Guy, and everyone who visits the blog. All the best,

    Happy Days,
    Simon J

  13. gabriel - December 31, 2006 8:37 PM

    all my best wishes to every­body , I hope that all your desire will be release.…

    peace for everyone and let all good the feeling , vibra­tion and music talking.…

  14. Brian Slater - December 31, 2006 9:57 PM

    Happy Holidays to you all. I espe­cially want to wish a pros­perous 2007 as well. I feel this year will be the best of them all!!!

    Look for­ward to more info on the tour, Mr. Pratt.… in due time I’m sure.

  15. Gabrielle Childers - January 1, 2007 10:42 PM

    Well Guy, I’d just typed up a long, semi-​​articulate/​clever post and then man­aged to delete it somehow. I know, it’s like ‘the BIG fish that got away’ … me, artic­u­late and clever? Who do I think I am, Rudders or Angelo?

    Soooo, the gen­eral gist of my missing mes­sage was to wish you and yours a fab­u­lous and happy new year! I’d also like to thank you for your part in making the last year one I’ll remember always. I don’t know if we can top it, but we can sure try, eh?!!

    Also, I (along with your many Irregular friends) am anx­iously awaiting the release of your book and the promised tour of North America that will follow. Having had 6 (SIX!!!) years of Bush and cronies, we are des­per­ately in need of your joc­u­larity! Not that there wasn’t a ton of unin­tended humor as a result of Bush et al, but once you’ve stopped laughing at their stu­pidity you have to sit down and cry!! Come and tickle our funny bones Guy … we need a man like you right about now.

    Peace and love!
    Gabrielle

  16. Gabrielle Childers - January 1, 2007 10:53 PM

    Back again …

    I wanted to con­grat­u­late you on your ARIA Hall of Fame award. Sounds like a multi-​​purpose sort of award too what with it being pointy and heavy to boot.

    Also the Bryan Ferry gig sounds like it will be a blast. Great musi­cians and all plus Bob Dylan songs? How could you go wrong? Right now it appears that you’re only touring the UK plus a few European cities, but if you bring it to the states I’d surely be up for the gig!!

    Goodnight and good luck, as they say.

    Peace,
    Gabrielle
