Mexborough in the news (well, sort of!)

October 30, 2009

Here is the lovely Ben Shepard on GMTV this morning, bigging up my home town πŸ™‚

Of course it is no surprise that he doesn’t know where Mexborough is, but its nice that he thinks it sounds great, if only he knew!


Black Diamonds

NaBloPoMo July 08 Day 23

A couple of months ago, Lenor started airing a TV commercial for Black Diamond and Lotus Flower scented fabric conditioner.

I was all like, wtf is a black diamond, how can you smell a diamond? I even went as far as to Twitter about it.

So now, it seems I have an apology to make, just maybe since the Lenor bottle does show an actual (clear) Diamond, so maybe they don’t know either.

I give you, Black Diamonds……..

….. yeah, they are a variety of Plum! Who knew?

On last weeks flight to Cyprus we were treated to the movie Enchanted. I didn’t watch it all, I only managed a few minutes and switched off around the bit where the animals are helping clean the apartment. I couldn’t stand to watch any more, even though I have always had an eye for Patrick Dempsey, going way back to seeing him on VHS in Catholic Boys aka Heaven Help Us. This may also have been the first movie I saw Andrew McCarthy in, unless I saw St. Elmos Fire first, whatever, I had the biggest crush on them both!

Come to mention Andrew McCarthy (I did didn’t I) I’m still surprised that The Sight wasn’t picked up for a full series.

Eeerrrmmm, so, where was I?

Oh yes, on the return flight we had the pleasure of watching August Rush which I have to say was very nice little movie.

It took a few minutes to figure out a few things, “is that him grown up?”, “no its still him now”, “is that his Mum?”, “no, at least I dont think so, hang on, maybe it is.”, “Who did he used to be?”, “Oh, urm, give me a minute, oh its the boy from Willy Wonka.” After that it’s all magical moments whenever the boy is playing an instrument, the guitar stuff is particularly good.

So, blah blah blah, it’s a nice movie and amongst the cast it features Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Can I just say his name again?

Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Can I also say thanks for reading the whole of this post? It almost makes it legit that I was really just looking far a reason to post this.

(Warning : Gratuitous boy tit ahead, look away now!)

Yeah I know this is taken from the The Tudors which I haven’t watched yet, but he doesn’t get his tits out during August Rush πŸ™‚

Thanks again πŸ™‚

About last night.

January 23, 2008

Heath Ledger died last night, we saw it on the news just before going to bed.

How sad that every news bulletin so far has only mentioned his role as a gay cowboy.

Me and Paul both liked his films and we both were equally shocked to hear the news, I’m sure he’ll be missed by many.

I especially liked how he and I both had Heath in our names πŸ™‚

In a statement issued today, I said β€œObviously, my thoughts are with his family at this sad time.”
