Sooo funny this week, I had to share this with you – if you're a Ralph from Honora Pearls fan, don't miss this clip!
Watch out for a couple of other recent funnies on air in next week's blog!
Also this week –
- Cine movies from the old days
- Sally Morgan with Craigy
- Cocktails with Rocker Nigel
- And Debbie gets 'Instyled!
What a fab weekend we had last weekend – our 18th Birthday celebrations bringing a bit of fever behind the scenes. So much that poor old Ralph – half way through his TSV day – got a bit crazy! He went so red I can't tell you – fancy saying that about 160cm pearls. You'd need the 230's for that! Haha!
Have been using my all-in-one Panasonic to transfer some old VHS's lately. One of them comes from 1981 – we used to go to Pontins on holiday and it takes you back to remember the old chalets pictured during this clip, doesn't it?
Behind me on the tandem is brother Glenn – yes the same brother featured on my blog last week at wakeboarding. And thank you for all your lovely comments about him – he's a lovely chap! Funny brother Derek pictured in the doorway at the end too – bless him! Where did you used to go on holiday in the 'old days'?
I got the original cine movies tranfered by a guy who added a kooky organ soundtrack, 'cos of course the old cine films were mute – seems weird that even into the early 80's people were still shooting with no sound, specially considering how technology has come along since then, eh? Now mum's given me a box full of the original films and I'd like to get them done again, minus the soundtrack! Have to find a place that does it I suppose! Any suggestions?
Also – loved my night out with pal Craigy – we went to see Sally Morgan in Richmond – another fab night of readings and interesting reactions. Whatever anyone says, she's really entertaining. And some spooky stuff once more – as you may know I'm well into all that stuff, and would stick up for her in any debate over how she does it – maybe there are some things that it'll take science another 50 years to 'prove'.
And anyway – some things we take for granted nowadays were poo-poo'd decades back. Who'd have thought at a sub-atomic level we're all mostly space – fields of potentiality – and that a particle of light acts differently depending on whether it's being observed! Hah! Yes OK, I'm a bit geeky when it comes to quantum physics, but believe me, there's a lot more to the 'unexplained' than we'll ever know! In any case, Sally's reading when my dad came through a couple of years back, was fun, even if you ARE a cynic! Here's a reminder if you missed it first time round!
My hair back then didn't look dissimilar from how the Instyler team did it for last week's TSV! I had some comments about how nice it looked and also about some of the funny faces I was pulling, so if you missed it, here's a selection. Now I've got an Instyler and am going to practice doing myself that way!
Had another nice friends night out with Rocker Nigel – went to a smashing Chinese in Soho, and had one of the best pina coladas ever! If it'd had crushed ice instead of whole chunks, I'd have been in heaven! Actually it's my favourite drink, and I can't help not yet being a grown up where alcoholic beverages are concerned.
It's my ambition to be knowledgeable about wine, but to be frank, I don't even like it that much! Craig was introduced to my alternative 'Malibu and pineapple' – on our night out, and he liked it too! The nearest thing to milkshake and smoothies I suppose! Lol. One day I'll take one of those wine courses – just to try to act my age! Maybe, anyway…
WATCH: Saw 'The Debt', with Helen Mirren and co. It was good, but only got about seven out of ten. Some great performances, but one too many 'coincidental' plot twists – I won't give it away, but if you see it too, put a review below and see if you agree. Loved the cinematography, the mood, the tension, the fear you really felt when you watch crucial scenes. Just let itself down by a few of those story twists. Shame, but glad I saw it.
I love the special teas they do there – including a jasmine one that opens up like a flower in the glass! Definitely recommended. As I say, come back next week for more about the actual concert I went to with LJ and co.
- New shoes show on Saturday – including – WIDE BOOTS! – Marta Jonsson Footwear comes to QVC including 10pm Saturday night – I wore them during my DIY hours midweek and they were soooo comfortable! (followed by the new EMU TSV Saturday night at midnight!)
Come back next week for some proper bloopers on air – including, if I can get it, the one that happened when a funny noise came out of the steam press iron just as I opened my mouth to talk!
Have a great week.
