If any of you resident in the UK were listening to Virgin Radio at 6.40am this morning, you may have heard an American lady explaining why Sean Connery is her hero. Well, that was my wife. She was chosen to compete head to head in a competition with a fellow listener, and talk for 30 seconds which went exactly like this.
Sean Connery is number one in my league of extraordinary gentlemen. His smouldering accent leaves me shaken, not stirred, and that smile puts me in double O seventh heaven. I'd give a lot more money than a penny to be in his company, but my Doctor might say no. Ah well, he's just another medicine man, and you only live twice after all. Sean is a real gem and, just like diamonds, he's forever.
As she's been blessed with a glorious singing voice, she sang the last five words and was delighted to hear the DJ declare, "Brilliant! You've won" So, we will soon be taking delivery of a 32" Panasonic LCD TV which will be a very nice replacement for our second hand 28" Samsung tube TV which was about on its last legs. She also won a year's subscription to Sky HD which we won't be able to take advantage of as we live in a 'listed' building, which means that absurd regulations state we are not allowed to put a satellite dish on the building. Anyway, I'm thrilled by her success and winning an HD ready set means I will be able to hook up a Blu Ray player when cash flow (and price reductions) permit.
Today also saw the arrival of my rental copy of THE THIRD MOTHER; a film which seemed to carry its own curse as this title was lost in the post when my rental company despatched a copy to me last week. Unfortunately, work commitments and various chores make it likely that it will be Friday or Saturday evening before I get chance to view it (and even that depends on how much sleep I get, thanks to noisy tenants in the apartment just two foot above our heads). Needless to say, I look forward to watching Dario's latest film and also to finally reading what others think of it.
