Yep !! It’s nearly half the way through 2009. We will all be starting to look at what we are going to do/buy/want at Christmas. Depressing isn’t it !!
So what’s happened since last time. Well not much really. Eldest lad is classed as ‘single’ on his facebook profile. He says they are just having a break for a while, and to be fair she did come to see his play and he did go for a meal with her and her family. He went out at 8pm last night, to go to the local fair, saying that he would not be late home. At 01:30am, Mrs H asked if he was home. So I had to txt him to ask where he was. ‘Staying at R****’s tonight. She is a friend from the drama group. Make of that what you will.
Talking of the play. The local drama group did an outstanding performance of Alan Bennett’s ‘Wind in the Willows’. He played the part of Ratty and it was excellent. He was on stage most of the evening, had the most lines and was prompting when they got it wrong. A real star.
I was asked to do some the promotional material, so it was my design for the tickets, posters and such. I was given a mention in the programme and a T-shirt for my efforts. I wonder if I will get asked again. If I am, I’ll have to get the details direct from the group, rather than hearing it second hand. It should stop any misunderstandings.
I’m getting a bit sick of hearing about Michael Jackson (not going to tag this). Okay he was a brilliant singer, excellent song-writer, fantastic dancer and an all round brilliant performer. On the downside, you only have to look at all those thousands of ‘X-Factor’ and ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ failures that the guy ‘inspired. They would not have been so humiliated had they not looked up to Jacko. And lets face it, away from his music, he was very weird.
I’ll tell you what makes me laugh at the moment, Celebrity Masterchef. It is how the Beeb describe the ‘celebrities’ . They get described as ex this and ex that. For example, this week, ‘Wendy Peters – Ex Coronation Street actress’. As if that is all she has ever done in her life was to play ‘Cilla’, when in fact she is a highly accomplished and well respected actor/actress.
That’s all for now.
