I´m a bit of magazine addict. I bought this one because I fancied the free gift - sunglasses to cover most of my face.

Could a mag with Sandra bullock on the cover be all that bad?


Sandra was a cunning trick to get common folk to part from their money.

So what´s the new Tatler like?

It helps
if you have a hyphenated name, especially if it´s Parker - Bowles. Emma Parker- Bowles is on page 62 singing the praises of the new Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder - max speed 196mph, 2 seater convertible - costs 131K. Tom Parker - Bowles is on page 68 telling us how to cook mackerel.
There´s barely room for all the hyphenated names on the party page. Thank Goodness Will Young is there to save space.

Then there´s Selina (Slinky) Tollemache (p77) who is going to be the next big pop sensation. She tells us that her success is thanks to perseverance and courage. Nothing to do with being the daughter of Lord and lady Tollemeache then. James Blunt look out!

I could go on.

Woman´s Own it ain´t. To misquote Joanna Lumley - you´ve got to be posh to be in the Tatler.

You should have asked me, I would have told you not to be sucked in. Why do you think I am here?

Go out and buy Socialist Worker and Viz as your penance.

pete - totally wrong. It´s Tracey Cholmley-Majoribanks

nic: Because mugs like me like Sandra Bullock - and she´s got married to a sort of hells Angel.

vicus: Sorry, I´ll ask you next time.
Would Woman´s Weekly do instead? Or perhaps he ´new style´ New Statesman.

"Sandra was a cunning trick to get common folk to part from their money."

same thing over here Kaz... I think I've learned, and then they offer a BIG headline on the cover, and you buy the mag... and then there is no story to back it up.

no more thank you.. I will do my reading on the blogs!

della: At our age we should know better. You can find anything you need in the blogs - except free gifts. But then again ´there´s no such thing as a FREE gift´ is there?

If you use the Tatler to wrap your fish 'n chips in people think you're dead posh. Or just silly.

Or you could be just FAT!
I love fish and chips more than chocolate but - the calories!
I don´t thinks Posh would indulge even if they were wrapped in the Tatler.
