and the angels laughed themselves to sleepI hate crowds. I like watching them from the outside but I don’t enjoy the actual experience of being one of the crew. Like sunning on the beach. Wedding receptions. But give me a camera or a bottle of scotch. And let me separate myself. And then I find them fascinating. One of my favourite films in this regard is Grand HotelĀ  with the very young Joan Crawford amongst other great stars.

Red Hair Green Grass2I was born with red hair. Orange actually. So was my sister. Both our parents had black hair. Which made us something like freaks. Red heads are generally not cute. They are different looking. And no red head that I know liked being a red head. As a child. Now that my hair has turned white, I sort of miss it.

The Duchess of IslingtonDoes everyone whose on American news programs have to shout? That’s what panel discussions are. And does everyone female ‘expert’ have to be under 35 and beautiful? CNN is like a pageant. And the guys are even prettier. Americans should see Rex Murphy. He’s ugly as sin and interesting as hell.
