Yesterday I was reading a blog that listed things to post on your blog. Top of the list was A List. Frankly I thought that was a bit of a cheat.
In a mood I stormed off to watch telly where Lenny Henry was living by an open sewer in Africa. It was awful. They made Angela Rippon live in a slum and I cried. Not about Angela as she was quite cheerful, but about the slum. Obviously no one should have to live like that. (Not even Angela, despite her rubbish skating in this year's Dancing On Ice Prelims). So I cried. Then Lenny cried. Then the man running the sewer cried. And he was the only one that had the right to as the rest of us don't live there.
So, anyway I was ashamed of being cross about The List Debacle and decided to cheer up.
And do a list.
Or if people like them, possibly more. Based on previous quality standards on this blog, they're not likely to be big, funny or clever but I'm going to to my best as I think we need a bit of pluck in These Difficult Times. What do you think? Do let me know won't you?
First off though, don't panic. In case it looks as if I've become almost Americanly positive, obviously I will be providing other far less positive lists.
Yes. Phew wees all round.
For example, I am quite looking forward to Things I Am Disappointed With But Haven't Done Anything About. That could be quite a long one. Also, Observations About The Weather By A Stranger That I Pretend To Be Amazed At In Order To Be Polite. Again, potentially long.
Anyway, I shall try to do my best for morale and seeing as we won't have any libraries, it will, at least, be something to read.
For now though, here is a link to Comic Relief so you don't have to sit in a bucket of baked beans and can just click through and give them some money.
Please do. It's bad enough people have to live in a slum, without them being sent people off of Eastenders who will insist on a hug. Erch.
