That’s it

No more bad news,

We quit that bit.

You can take it,

because that’s it.

No more, all we want

to do now is hug and kiss

and smile and laugh

and look and paint

and draw and eat

and read and love

and kiss and smile some more.

1. What is your favourite sport?

My favourite sport is ice skating, if I’m a spectator.  I don’t really good at sport.  I like kicking balls around, and playing tennis against a wall, basket ball, gymnastics.  Me and my husband are not team sports people, or rule rememberers, so we do our own things.

3. What has been a special moment for you so far in 2015?

Probably getting married, that was special.

4. What is your favourite quote?

“Perry: Go. Sleep badly. Any questions, hesitate to call.

Harry: Bad.

Perry: Excuse me?

Harry: Sleep bad. Otherwise it makes it seem like the mechanism that allows you to sleep…

Perry: What, fuckhead? Who taught you grammar? Badly’s an adverb. Get out. Vanish.”

And also, from a real person, say I like the one from Oscar Wilde about, “be yourself cos everyone else is taken, ” I also like: the one from Winston Churchill where he says success is just repeatedly failing.  “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”

5. What was your favourite class when still at school?

History, because there was an incredibly sexy teacher.

6. Anything you had wished to have learned earlier?

I really don’t know.  I try not to have regrets.  I wish I hadn’t given away my dvd box set of the X Files.  I wish I can learn to not be angry, and – oo, no, I’ve got one!!

I wish I had practised flexibility consistently so that I could do the splits now.

7. What musical instrument have you tried to play?

TRIED TO PLAY: Recorder, trombone, piano, saxaphone, violin and drums.  I vaguely succeeded at the first one.

When we grow up

When I grow up (or, someday in the future, maybe when I’ve got my own house)

I am going to:

  1. Learn to play the piano.


  1. Make Macaroni and vegan cheese


  1. Live in Europe


  1. Dress up in fancy dress

That’s all I’ve got so far.  I’ll get back to you.


Rewriting Pirates of the Caribbean

Ok, walk with me people.   Think about Pirates of the Caribbean.


Which, I loved, by the way.  Forget the sequels.  First one: You’ve had all the stuff about stuff, you’re in the basement, Jack and Will are sword fighting, remember?  (I wouldn’t have that poor donkey in the remake.) 


Anyway, in this remake, the two of them would be sword fighting, and then, suddenly, they realise that they shouldn’t be fighting, but kissing!


Of course they should.  They fall into a passionate embrace and it is very romantic.


The rest of the film could continue, as they are both caring, and so they will still want to rescue what’s her name.


But the romance is between Will and Jack, and they live happily ever after in a boat.


See, it makes more sense this way to me.  I would believe it more.  There’s hate between Will and Jack, and hate is fire, and fire is passion, and passion is love.  Any who, that’s what I think.
