As you may well know I am not the person to ask about the latest showbiz news. However, for Radio we were asked to discuss something showbizzy, and we stumbled upon Lauren Goodger’s weight issues. And voila: le wild podcast.
First person talking is Kirsty Bruce, Second is Graeme Aitken and lastly is me.
How do you feel about the media’s permanent weight issues? Let me know!
Now, before you think I’ve made some life-changing decisions, hear me out. Have you heard of Mil Millington? I hadn’t until I stumbled upon it. That was 3 years ago I think and every now and again I go back and have a read through his website, which is HILARIOUS. No matter whether you’re single or living with someone, there’s always something you can relate to. So without further ado, please click this link and enjoy the random ravings of Mil Millington and Margret.
Here’s some examples:
I came home from work on Friday and, as I wearily opened the door into the house, Second Born, Peter, heard me entering and poked his head out of the living room.
‘Hello, Papa – I’ve missed you,’ he shouts. From within the living room Margret’s voice calls out to him ‘No you haven’t, Peter.’
Whether her cutting our son’s hair comes under ‘money-saving skill’ or ‘therapy in the making’. Continue reading
I never knew food could divide people the way it can.
INTRO: I feel slightly bad for publishing this now because events have been cleared up. However, my amazing female intuition tells me that even though current conflicts have been resolved, they will return and they will harass us (and by us I mean me) just as bad. So I’m publishing.
I didn’t want to come clean about my feelings bang on the face of the internet so I hid it in one of its many chin folds (in my head the internet is a fat black lady). I have also taken into consideration the mood you might find yourself in. This means that if you feel like reading a heavily sarcastic yet superbly optimistic story, you would choose to click J’adore and if you feel like an accusing, yet no less an accurate summary of factual events, you click J’accuse. They will guide you to some PDF files containing the story of your chosing.
Finally: If any of my flatmates end up here and read these, my excuse is: none. I’m a journalist, it’s what I do. But it is exagerrated…
Here’s something to listen to while you read.
Hasn’t this world developed a funny sense of priority? There are all sorts of things happening around us; the question of whether Palestine will be allowed to join the UN, the stories on how the scandalous Berlusconi might finally be giving up his position of power and the continued rise of violence in good old Britain itself. But it is getting surprisingly hard to find all these things in the new ‘layout’ of today’s newspapers.
Since page 3 girls have long lost their factor of scandal, a new factor has completely overthrown the media: the X factor. But it isn’t just that show alone that particularly makes me want to throw yoghurt on anyone who is in control of how much ‘talent show contestants’ cover the pages. They seem to multiply, like cockroaches. And like any pest, no matter how hard you try to kill one down, another 3 will pop up from out of no-where. Continue reading
