An extra hour...

Well it sounds like a warzone outside which means it must nearly be November 5th and Guy Fawkes Night. I forgot the clocks went back today which means I am an hour ahead of myself. I have used the extra time very constructively. I cleaned my room ( This actually took half of Saturday too, I am such a slut.)

I have also burned a CD for the hold music at work. I thought I'd do a compilation of cheesey model/looks related songs:

1. James Blunt -Your Beautiful

2. Xtina-Beautiful

3. Scissor Sisters-Filthy Gorgeous

4.Kratwerk-The Model


It then gets a bit random:

6. Dreamgirls (from the show) Well the models are a bit like "dream girls"

7. Olivia Newton John-Xanadu. I chose this because sometimes people are a bit cross about waiting on hold and this always seems to make people smile and sing slong.

8. Mary J Blige-No More Drama. I sometimes feel that our models/clients/bookers should listen to this and think about their actions.

9.Julie Andrews-My Favourite Things. I have no idea why I thought this would be funny.

10. Lisa Stansfield - All Woman. Because our girls are!!!

11. Kid Creole-I'm A Wonderful Thing, Baby. Male model anthem methinks!

12. Judy Garland-Over The Rainbow. It's camp, it's about following your dreams.

13. Irene Cara- Fame. "Because fame costs and right here is where you start paying"

Yes, I know. I should get out more

Simon Hobart

I received an email this morning with the news that Simon Hobart died at the weekend. Simon was an early crush of mine and also the man behind the Indie gay scene in London. His nights have been the source of much fun, snogs, bad dancing, hangovers and even a relationship or two!

He will be greatly missed.

Surely they can do better

Friday night: I am meeting Aussie Sharon Stone, Miss Dior and Neurotic Olly. They have decided to try a new bar. Some bright spark has come up with a classy and amusing name: Free Willy. *sighs* It's in the former Buddha Bar, which looks like a railway carriage and never managed to attract the punters. Still, it will be good to see the boys as it seems to have been ages.

Flattie has a new mobile. It's the Sony Ericksson with camera/memory stick/music player. Someone is jealous.

Should I be worried about Bird Flu? The newspapers are talking about it endlessly. I mean, we humans have pharmacies stocked with Lemsip, Vicks and Olbas Oil. These things are not available to chickens, no wonder they feel poorly.

On Friday I went to see Texas with Cosgrove and Fox. We missed the first half hour, but what we saw was brilliant. Sharleen was on fiesty form. She sang all our favourites and we all sang along. I didn't realise how popular they were with The Lesbians. There were loads of gurlz in the crowd and Sharleen flirted outrageously. Through Fox's connections we ended up having aftershow drinks. Sharleen Spitieri comes up to my nipple level, very tiny. They all were quite little. We got a taxi down to The Brewers and saw Tan, Mac, Rob Kent, Twin Paul and Flattie's latest conquest, Simon. Simon proceeded to tell me that there was some sexual chemistry going on between Rob Kent and I, and that we should stop larking around and get it on. I think Rob was a bit shocked, especially as he has been going on dates with Iain Mac. Potentially very messy.

Saturday: New cushions to match the gay wallpaper. New landline phone. Flat starting to look less like a squat. Johns come round. We drink lots of wine.

Sunday: Laundry. Sexy Roger is in town for three weeks. We meet for drinks and food. I try not to dribble when I talk to him. He tells me dirty stories. I almost choke on my drink when he declares that my farts smell of lube. (I can assure you reader, they do not.) We are all disturbed by the news that someone was gay bashed and murdered on Clapham Common on Friday night. Horrible.

F**king typical

Story of my life...This was the guy I arranged a date with at the weekend,
( we snogged at a bar on Sunday) I asked him to send a picture (to make sure I
recognised him) He did. He was Ok, but not amazing, but I thought what the heck, I sent him one of me and....

...I thought that you were someone else from Sunday. I was quite drunk.
I'm very sorry and have enjoyed chatting with you but I met someone
earlier and thought that you were he.

Biggest apologies but thought I'd let you know now rather than wait
until Saturday and then come up with some excuse.

Sorry again and hope that you don't think I'm a complete bastard it was
an honest mistake,

I know there is an eclipse today, it seems to have been playing tricks with technology all weekend. I tried to get the iMac to work on saturday but the connection wasn't working so I assumed that my broadband had been set up. Out came the Wanadoo box and I followed the set up instructions only to get half way through and discover that my account has not actually been activated. Still, the new modem looks pretty.

I lost my mobile phone. I think it fell out of my pocket in the cab on the way home. I took out insurance so it's not a total disaster, but I had hoped to swop my Nokia for a flashy new Sony Ericsson. Unfortunately it doesn't work like that and I have to stick with the Nokia. Looks like tomorrow will be spent typing in numbers!
