What KAZ did.

I drank:
Yes that is a world cup serviette and yes it is from Japan 2002. They were selling them off very cheap at Sainsburys.

I ate:

I watched:
‘Batman Begins‘ - not my usual sort of thing but I bought it recently in Fopp (RIP) because I‘m a very big fan of Christian Bale. It was very enjoyable - dark and dramatic with excellent acting.

The story starts when batman is a little boy and develops a bat phobia (thinks - does this mean that I’ll become ‘Frogwoman’?)

His dad is played by Linus Roache which means that Ken Barlow is Batman’s grandad!

All the Brits are there - Liam Neeson with a ridiculous hamster on his chin, Tom Wilkinson wasted as the villain Falcone and Michael Caine doing a perfect Michael Caine impression. Katie Holmes has a surprisingly strong presence as the token female. Please will someone have her surgically removed from Tom (he was 45 last week).

I read:
Julie Myerson’s latest - ‘the Story of You‘. I love Julie Myerson’s sensuous writing though this isn’t as good as ‘Something Might Happen’.

'The Colour’ by Rose Tremain about early settlers in New Zealand - it was recommended by friend B. Although I felt very engaged with the characters it was a bit of a lengthy saga. However, I’m glad I stayed with it to the end because it had a bit of a late (sexy) surgeAlexei Sayle’s ‘Barcelona Plates’ which I brought with me for obvious reasons. He’s a very talented and underrated writer. Every sentence is a witty gem of a comment on ‘the way we are’. I lay on my lounger LOLing.
The book is a collection of short stories and, like those rich alcoholic chocolate truffles you get at Christmas, you can’t really take too many at a time.

I listened to :

RAKsexy (well that‘s what it sounds like)
It’s a Catalan radio station playing non stop pop - mostly British singles of a certain vintage. They seem to have a special fondness for Terence Trent Darby and the Fine young Cannibals.

I was once on a one day acting course with Roland Gift before he was famous. We pretended to be trees.

Christian Bale? Really? I can't stand the bloke. Not since American Psycho.

Well - if I remember rightly - the straightlaced wife of the New Zealand settler/gold seeker meets this stocky Chinese guy. There follows erotica between her foot and his dick.
After this creative copulation they seem to settle into domesticity in a cave.

Tony:
No - the wine was Spanish - the World cup was Japanese. I have so many of those bloody serviettes they would stretch from here to Japan.

Geoff:
I am SOO jealous. He's georgeous.
Just think you could have been in that Sammy and Rosie film with Frances Barber getting her kit off.

sl:
(Welcome back)
I rewatched American Psycho recently. I hated it the first time - but thought it was excellent on second viewing.

mj:
Geoff and Roland baring anything on Monday morning is just too much excitement!

It all sounded delightful and relaxing anyway. The food pic is very nice.
Now the lovely image has been spoiled by images of Geoff & Mr Gift (Mr E. Gift?) baring their trunks and leaving.

I should say here that Geoff is not an old fruit. I can't say the same for Roland Gift.

NiC:
It was actually Terence Trent d'Arby wasn't it - he certainly fancied himself.
Strange what the Europeans like about Brits. They also love the Robster.

Speak for yourself Murph - I wouldn't say no to a bare trunk.

Betty:
Sounds like he's an old 'ham' though. And I'm not talking football here.

Blogger I, like the view said...

I though TTD was RIP in UK.

Mopsa:
Thanks for the award.
There'll soon be more dogs than humans over here.
But that's fine with me.

Aha, yes, I forgot the apostrophe...so it was. And where is he and his apostrophe now, eh?

Perhaps he has turned into a frog.

NiC:
It's princes who turn into frogs. I think Terence thought he was a prince - he was married to a posh woman and lived in a stately mansion.
How on earth do I know these things?

..what about the apostrophe? That looked a bit like a tadpole so maybe that turned into a frog?
