Since the whole phone hacking thing I've noticed that the gossip feeds have gone eerily quiet, which means that either the publishers are being cautious, or everyone in the entertainment industry is behaving themselves.
Well, everyone except that wicked Sooty
, of course. Of all the British celebs to end up in the shame files, I never figured the next one would be Sooty: Sooty apologises for Paul Daniels pizza-throwing injury
It was this quote in particular that had me doubled over in mirth, but I really think you need to have grown up watching the Goodies puppet government episode
, alas, but I was rotflmao to within an inch of my life. "Sweep said Sooty was so shocked by it all that he was speechless afterwards."
Snort. Giggle. Wheeze. Yes, I am five. I've been behaving like a five year old week. I'd like to blame the nightly roadworks. There's just something about prolonged sleep deprivation (and hormones) that just makes everything more extreme.
[Update: Sooty read my guffawing tweets and replied with an unhappy face. No, really. I have distressed Sooty with my tittering and I'm sorry. I am a bad, bad person. But seriously, Sooty's on Twitter? I live in a strange, strange world - and I can show you the official reply if ye dinnae believe me.]
Anyhoo, trying to be cheerful, I note with delight that someone has at last shown young Matty
how to wear a hat and wear it well
. Either that or he's finally got his hands on one of my favourite books, City of Shadows
, from the Police and Justice museum. I have a signed copy from the book launch - smug.
Certainly looks like it anyway. Kind of reminds me of George Sanders
, too. Yes, they've been playing the old 40s Saint
fillums on 7TWO in the wee small hours. J' Adore.
Forties Saint is so damn arch and tricksy and amoral. I just love those flicks to bits.( more: love never dies )
