Things I have discovered in the last few days

ashes to ashes, david sylvian, hard rock cafe, maureen starkey

Vintage Marmalade with Brandy is one of the most heavenly substances known to man.

L’Oreal are evil. They put lead and plastic in their [allegedly] semi-permanent hair dye, don’t list them on the box and Miss Peelpants is thus finding it difficult to achieve her new ideal hair-do in the style of Maureen Starkey. Boo hiss.

Maureen Starkey is the best Beatle-wife.

I have no navigational skills whatsoever.

Venus and Mars are both in my Seventh House at the moment, apparently. I don’t really know what this means, but it sounds scary.

Hard Rock Cafe Pina Coladas are the third most heavenly substance known to man (after the aforementioned marmalade and Cinnabons). I already knew this, but it needed reiterating after Friday night.

Actually perhaps David Sylvian is the most heavenly substance known to man? Or, rather, woman.

Everyone else in the world meets David Tennant and I don’t. I was in Cardiff, it was the perfect time for the Gods to throw me a Tennant. Grumble.

Proper costumed guides who can stay in character are brilliant. And I never have any questions when someone asks if anyone has any questions. Why?

Ashes to Ashes writers are evil geniuses.

Having your back painted with acrylics is really rather lovely.

Anyway. I am now returned from my adventures and will be bringing you some gorgeous new listings as soon as possible!

In honour of the new series of Ashes to Ashes starting tonight (I’m currently pausing for a moment to resist the urge to bounce around….oh what the hell, bounce bounce bounce!) here are some random early Eighties images….if you like that kind of thing!

Mmmmm…..gratuitous soggy Durans shot…..
