Welcome to the wonderful world of Me!!

"You're independent - and a logical analytical thinker.

You love learning and ideas... and know things no one else does.

Bored by small talk, you refuse to participate in boring conversations.

You are open minded. A visionary. You understand the world and may change it."
"http://www.blogthings.com/whatnumberareyouquiz/">What Number Are You?

will that show up, i wonder?

so many of these quizzes and all fascnating in their own way...  will they tell us something about ourselves...

Just spoke to Lynnie - discussing James tonight...  after the 'how are you's"...  How he never remembers names of his fans - unless he spends time with them, like the stewards at JMLive or they somehow impact on his life...  there's just too many of us.   He DOES remember faces and no matter how good an actor he is, there is no mistaking the glint of recognition - 'Hey, darlin' /baby/honey/girl or whatever", he says with that sweet smile...  He has seen some of us often enough over the last few years, to know who are the long-term fans, who try to go to all the Cons we can.   Damn near ruined me financially but bloody worth it.
Problem of course is that i can't make it to LA this year.   i would kill to go and when my darling friend offered to pay my flights, my resolve to sort my finances out first - faltered for a moment before sense said, 'hold it, you're still beyond broke and need to get back on track' and i thanked her but managed to say no.  Fuckin' near killed me...

i have been living vicariously on the excitement of friends who are going, the shopping and the trip planning - who is sharing with whom, when are you leaving, how long are you staying - damn, i can't think of a question for James or any of the other Guests... who are they again, and all that...  Queen Mary is some serious Art Deco and the dresses have reflected that where possible but at the end of the day you dress as best you can.   i do have a couple of things he hasn't seen but not terrifically dressy, just going out to dinner with friends stuff - not 'picture with James in a tux' dressy...  i'd have had to go to velvet pants&long skirt with some fancy tops, i haven't worn with him yet...
Lynnie has promised piccies of everything (bless her wonderful generous heart) and my sweet Susie is going to try and get James to do a photo for me and we have ideas on that - if it comes off, i will post it for you all to see.  Can't wait...  How did i deserve such wonderful friends....  i really love you guys...  *who did that remind me of?!!*

Thank the gods, it is the weekend at last  - the last four days have been murderous busy - and i said to the Deputy GM 'have you smelled the new towels?  yes, nice and fluffy but they smell like you have shoved your face into a bowl of industrial solvent...'    We need some better detergent from the laundry...   He fell about laughing....
Lots of people going off on holiday just now, getting some rest in before Christmas - our wedding season is in full swing..  THREE weddings on tomorrow...  that has to be a record...  even if one is tiny... i'm shagged and not in a good way...  that is one of the problems with my job, trying to fit everyone in...  ah me...
Cousin Ralph & Anna have finally got their new house...
i'll write again soon

Don't wear yourself out, try to get some rest...you'll be up at all hours next weekend reading reports and early picture posts. You're a good example for me, I'm walking around like Eeyore.
THREE weddings - OMG!!!!! There is a program on TV here called Whose Wedding Is It Anyway - about the adventures and mishaps of couples, their families, the wedding planners, caterers etc, it is hilarious to watch, but I'd hate to have to live through one of them....Once was plenty for me,,and I did it without a planner-it was a really nice celebration.

Anyway, we'll be back again next year;>)

Hi babe
Gad, i hope so! i mean i lust and long to see James again, like we all do but i really would love to see you all again. i miss that. Kinda getting used to seeing everyone who matters at least once a year, this year is bit like a desert... But we will eat Chinese again, dear Sami - this time i will make my own way and not wait for some effwitted local to guide me!! although we did pretty good in Bristol...
Fancy another Live Tour 2007??
i sent Himber a Best Wishes email - told him to get James recording and for him to arrange a new Tour for Album #2 - "My Fans Are Patient" or should that be 'patients'? LOL
later, girl...

Sorry you can't make it this time but I admire your self discipline. Maybe we'll get a UK tour next year :)

And the reports are always fun.

Lack of money is sure a discipline but one i could do without.... lol
i was severely tested when one of my lovely girls offered to pay the airfares but last time i checked it would have cost me £88 to travel by train just to Kings X, after 9am this morning or £114 at 6am!! and i just. don't. have. it.
Heartbreaking but true... *sighs* but we will meet again and as i said to Sami - have put the word on Himber for a Tour next year... we'll see when BUT it will happen....
Take care, pet
