Ohmigosh it's Awesome

Two exclamations guaranteed to have me throwing things at the TV.

I love Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. But the people who have their homes rebuilt ALWAYS say them.

Are people in the US really so scared of say "Oh my god"? Do they really feel awe when they see their new home?

Once per show I could probably tolerate, but we are talking about every minute or two. AAAARRRGGHHH!

Rocketman

An absolute all-time favourite.





































Sadly, as well as being unwatermarked, this is an incomplete album but has this bonus:

Proud Flesh

Such a weird episode. I mean, do rich people with a power complex really kill off their own sons?

Some great performances though.

Why?

Whenever I go to the doctor's they try to prescribe me with something that comes in capsule form. I usually spot it, and ask them to give me the drug in an alternative form. Today I missed it, and ended up with some capsules that are supposed to line my stomach against the anti-inflammatories I have to take.

Gelatine is made from the boiled down bones and hooves of cows, calves, pigs, and as such is not something vegetarians want to take in any form. Many desserts have gelatine in, making say, a fruit trifle into a non-vegetarian dish. who really wants beef or pork in their desserts? But at least they aren't something we need to take.

Why don't drug companies realise that they are making their medicines inaccessible not just to beggies, but to Hindus, Jews, Muslims? There are perfectly viable alternatives. I don't even understand why Holland and Barrett, a major health food chain, sells its alternative medicines in veggie and non-veggie forms. What a waste of money - non-veggies can take the veggie ones. But at least tha is better than only having gelatine capsules, 'cos veggies just can't take them.

There are a few million of us in Britain alone. Why don't manufacturers and supermarkets notice us.

***By the way, the supermarket chain Asda has only veggie capsules (apart from things like cod liver oil which it would be pointless to use them for) and is the only company I know that actually has a Vegetarian symbol on its toothpaste. Even I never thought of that one before I saw it***

The Narrows Interview

Alternatively known as "The Fidget". Vincent just can't keep still! At first he is almost off-screen to the right, so they move the camera, and he nearly wriggles out of shot again!

Just in case you hadn't realised, my copy arrived today, nice and promptly, so there is a big smile on my face.

Probability











































Anyone remember Lilly? She briefly touched us with her wonderful pictures, including a great calendar, a few years ago. She used some of my pictures to make this collage for JoJo. I know the front one is from Phantom, but I have a feeling the repeated pose behind is from this episode. Any advance on that?
