It has been a while, but she is back.
The view from there is pretty amazing, she said.
And yes you can send her.
I have had this plan for a very long time, and I don’t know why it took me this long. Next Saturday at 9.30am (blimey that’s early!) I would keep away from anywhere close to Pimlico if I were you.
The answer is no. Too much Bill is a contradictio in terminus.
I was going to write a one line post today:
“The only successful marriage I had was me and my work.”
Because I really don’t have much of a life at the moment. I am juggling between finishing our short film (we spend the whole weekend on it again – except for the 3 hour Pirate break – but we are getting there), rewriting my script and then there is my full time job. We are clinging on to the fact that the deadline for the short is the 11th of February, we will probably fall into hibernation for a week or two after that – but after that we will slowly get our life back.
As a result the energy to write lively blog posts is fairly low at the moment, I apologize.
Good I remembered that I have 2 reviews of The Girl In The Cafe that were due to be posted. So go and read them, one is from Laura in London, the other one from Marcello in Dubai.
A big Thank you to both of them for placing another marker on the map.
Everyone is welcome.
Before you start – I know that you write SCRIPT with a T in the end. I think this really stresses the point of this post: memory overload.
I promise, that soon, when I have cleaned up a bit in my head, I will write some proper posts again. Maybe. Probably.
In the mean time listen to this beautiful piece of music.
It is film music. Of course it is, it’s from Serendipity and it is magical.
It’s called January Rain (it is by David Gray) which is a pretty appropiate title if you live in London.[audio:012008.mp3]
They are Scottish.
They are from Glasgow.
They have been around for quite a while.
I am always late in discovering delicious music like this.
When I heard this song for the first time today I had to run to my drawing pad.
In between dancing I draw the frog.
I have also listened to The Murders in the Rue Morgue – Read by Bill Nighy.
I wish I could hear Bill say “Loge du concierge” 24 hours a day.
Yes I love his hat.
But his message was really more important.
I hope it didn’t snow under in the hat talk.
Here’s the song. Clean the room. Start dancing.
Tomorrow is my last day at work.
Sound no longer available.
Was this the really the best I could come up with for a post?
But you’re the funny little frog in my throat.
I hope you stick around for a while.
“Davy …., wow, how is New York? I look so much forward to see you again.”
“New York is fantastic, you are going to love it, trust me. And I had a great sailing trip, I’ll tell you all about it when you get here.”
“I can’t wait… I …”
“But as your editor …”
“Ehrm yes ?”
“I know you don’t really do Christmas, but for your readers …”
“You need to wish them a Merry Christmas.”
Not in my wildest dreams could I have dreamed of such a large geographical area being covered by this DVD. It’s one of my best Christmas presents. And people are still signing up, the last location being Lancaster in the UK. You’re very welcome to join if you like.
Thanks to all of you who are participating.
The fog seems to clear up on Monday, according to the BBC. That’s another great Christmas present. The third one is already in New York.
I stepped in to order something to eat, stood in front of him, trying to find the words as he makes me nervous since he started talking, and I remembered that I had no money. I had spent my last cash on stamps.
I just licked at a lot of them, and they taste nasty, but they are put on the envelopes. Airmail labels are put on them and I just personally delivered them in the mailbox. If you happen to be in South Croydon, you can hear them. Twenty giggling and exited girls together in a red mailbox, eager to go travelling.
I would love to hear if they have arrived safely in a comment here. And take good care of them when they do, they giggle a lot, but they are good company.
When they will arrive?
I have no idea.
It’s written in the wind.
Just a little reminder that it is your very last chance to get hold of an exclusive limited edition The Girl postcard (without spelling errors!).
Go here : I want yours, do you want mine?
Update : sold out :-) !
Both Lawless Heart (in the replay after a long time – this is a very nice British film – I wonder if it ever made it to other countries, but very recommended) and The Girl In The Cafe (what the heck I felt I needed to concentrate on slightly different things – things are a bit, uhm, mad here, and so was I, so why not, it helped) on my TV screen this evening was nearly too much to handle. Luckily there are always ways to calm down again, but I am afraid you are the ones to suffer.
(After a talk with my editor – I modified this post slightly and deleted the other one, we didn’t like it the way it was. I think I need a break from writing here, a short one, will be back as soon as we come up with something decent to write. That might be tomorrow or the day after, or, since I am planning to visit The Cafe tonight, already tonight. You never know when inspiration comes to you, but I am sure it will.)
On of my Girl cards is featured on the Go-Cards frontpage. This is actually one of my personal favourites.
So – how cool ! (Apart from the fact that they have misspelled my last name, but what’s in a name anyway.)
You can send her as an e-card, but the picture is a bit small if you ask me.
I have been working on some London Girl cards lately too, some of them might popup here some time.
And yes, it’s all about Love, Actually. Love + Rock.
