HAPPY CHRISTMAS

Posted in Derren's Posts

Posted by Derren Brown December 26, 2009 at 1:53 am

Rather tired and dreamy and overstuffed after a long and lovely day of great food, company and wine. And the JJ Abrams Star Trek on the home cinema. I hope you’ve all had a lovely one. For those not following me on Twitter – I have been away filming a documentary and then on holiday, so apologies for my recent poor turnout on the blog.

I do hope you’ve enjoyed your Christmas days, or indeed are still enjoying them for our far distant friends. Tra-la and ho ho ho.

Just finished watching Star Trek with the parents myself. Dad enjoyed it greatly, mom fell asleep.

Hope you and your crew had a wonderful Christmas and that the new year brings you all fortunes galore.

Night, Derren. Hope you enjoyed your Christmas ^-^

๐Ÿ˜ฎ ! Star Trek!! I saw that the day I saw Enigma in Glasgow! It was the big tall CineWorld just across the road from where you were signing stuff after the show ;p

It’s a great movie. I’m also glad Zachary Quinto didn’t behave too much like Sylar instead of Spock >.<

And a very Merry Christmas to you too, Derren! I too had a wonderful day full of over-eating and over-drinking (what else?) The gifts I received were lovely too. Just a beautiful day all round. ๐Ÿ™‚

Can I also say (although I did post this on Twitter) a big THANK YOU for some of the replies etc, you’ve sent to me there. I don’t think you realise just what an @reply can make someone feel when they receive one. Just a ‘thank you’ or the DM you sent me, made me so immensely happy that I thought I’d die from it. You’re so kind, generous, thoughtful and incredibly giving, no wonder your followers on Twitter are growing & growing. I thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for that, & for making 2009 bearable at times.
Oh, and I am still so glad you liked the xmas vid! ๐Ÿ˜‰

You’re all wonderful, the entire DB crew.
Love you all,

Hope you had a Merry Christmas and you have a Happy New Year. Hoping the temptation to do a few party tricks wasn’t too painful.

I got your ‘Tricks of the Mind’ book this year and I can’t wait too read it !

Have a good 2010,

Oh, you get dreamy after that? You don’t sound dreamy right now, far from that. Or your dreamy isn’t my dreamy. Possible. Anyhow, glad you enjoyed your days.

Now, let’s get rid of that stuffed feeling and dreamy stuff … let’s get alive. People should not spoil their body cells too much. After all … it is there to carry us around … and without mind control … it wont get up and do something at all anymore. Luckily most do get fed up with those days .. would not want those days to be each single day in life … however pleasant those days might have felt … contrasts …

I hate 3 sundays in a row .. disgusting … it sucks all life out of me … this hanging around in this complete nothing … man … I almost faint … therefor .. mind control … not DVB’s type … but mine.

star trek . now that is what I call a typical X-mas movie … It gives so muh the correct atmosphere … brings people into the right X-mas spirit …

I saw .. Eine frau in Berlin and Affinity and Merry War. All not that great. Now there’s left Cold Mountain (it does have Jude Law in it, @ Kidman but other than that .. not sure … maybe tomorrow then .. ).

The bed sort of speaks to me right now but I’ll stay up a little longer… after all .. it is X-mas … TV sucks, but there a whole lot of X-mas movies (all not my type, there is a limit to what I can take X-mas-wise). .

What is X-mas .or Christmas .. We stuff turkeys and stuff ourselves with turkeys … hm … who’s gonna eat us?

Let’s dream about next year’s X-mas .. maybe it will be even better than this year’s.

Oh well … let’s sing another carol then …

First time I’ve blogged (if that’s the right word). Just started to watch DB; the last series on C4 was fascinating on a few different levels I thought…. Felt like I really got the the main messages behind the show stuff.

Anyway, Merry XMas; here’s to a Wonderful 2010!!!!

Merry Christmas Derren!
My good times of Christmas have been enhanced and lengthened by the gift of a certain book, I wonder if any one here has heard of it: Derren Brown – Tricks of the Mind.
๐Ÿ˜›
Seriously, though, fantastic writing skills there.

Christmas this year was much better than the past couple of years. Parents let me have my own little Yule tree in my room, which was really sweet of them. ๐Ÿ™‚ Got gifts of a new phone (which I used to post a message on here!,) DVD of ‘Dracula’ (1931, with Bela Lugosi…creepiest one of them all!,) and a smashing new book by one of my favourite authors….No, sorry, it’s not ‘Tricks of the Mind’, it’s ‘Sovereign’ by C.J. Sansom. ๐Ÿ˜€ Then ate way too much chocolate, and woke up feeling sick.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New to everyone on and behind the blog (particularly D.B., who I will be seeing next year!)

Having hounded the lovely Phillis my two Enigma posters arrived safely in sunny Bristol and one will be off to Oxford with Toby on his return there tomorrow and the other in my luggage to Bangkok as a late Xmas gift for Will. Thanks for making my Xmas present decisions so easy! All the best for 2010 and continued success.

Lots of merriment right back at you…we too enjoyed the trek, along with the day the earth stood still, all those angels and demons and a terminator or two in our cinema room…..fantastic way to enjoy the festivities. Looking forward to 2010, especially March 2010 at the Bristol Hippodrome….! whoop! x
