I Am What I Am

I have been busy. Last week I appeared on This Morning [with Fearne and Phil], and I sang with Tony Christie. I then had my lunch interrupted by Dominic Cooper. I wouldn't have minded but I was scoffing on a rather tasty blueberry muffin at the time. I then went to see La Cage Aux Folles at the Playhouse in Northumberland Avenue. Then I had an Italian. It's all go....
[Obviously the hippy thing didn't happen]

BEAST said...

Blimey
Your the Paris Hilton of North Kent

Scarlet-Blue said...

Will you be singing with Tony Christie at Glastonbury this week as well? I might see you there. I'll be the one with the green wellies.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Jekand: I'll be there if I have a backstage pass... and I'll be wearing my Andy Warhol print wellies.

Geoff said...

Can we have Alan Titchmarsh doing All That Jazz next?

Dave said...

I had a dream that I was back in North Kent last night. I was quite glad to wake up and discover I wasn't.

PI said...

Do give us warning next time dear.
John can be quite moving when he tries - if a bit jerky:)

Lulu LaBonne said...

I want to know more about the Italian

Scarlet-Blue said...

Geoff: Quite frankly I'm looking for requests for me to do all that jazz... I can do jazz hands, you know. Alan only grows strawsberries in his bowler and doesn't know how to write sex scenes.

Dave: I'll have you know that the people of north Kent are charming, so long as you remember to mind your 'F's and 'C's.

Pat: I like John. He knows how to enjoy himself. He'll be in the show from September, so I might go again... it really was brilliant!

Lulu: Well spotted!

John Barrowman is the only all-singing all-dancing artise I know who can make sequinned lycra shriek with embarrassment...

I lived in North Kent for 22 years, which was quite long enough, thank you. I believe you get less than that for murder these days.

xl said...

Is he one of MJ's House Boys?

Chairman Bill said...

Which Italian was that then? Not Berlusconi I trust!

Sarah said...

What hippy thing?...do you mean you ate too much pasta and now you have a fat arse? or hippy as in trendy? or hippy as in pass the spliff??

KAZ said...

OOh Dominic Cooper - very nice! Much better than a blueberry muffin.

MJ said...

I am relieved to hear you've chosen the wellies over the Beavers.

jekandhyd said...

You are almost certainly above this, but we currently have a vacancy for a chanteusse in our punk bluegrass ensemble. The audition piece is Grandfather's Clock. Could you be tempted? Also, I will be Mother Goose this year and have to deliver a rendition of "I'm Just a Girl That Can't Say No", and I would be very grateful for any tips you could give me.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Whirly: Now, now, don't be cruel!

Dave: See above!

Mr XL: He most certainly could be... he is a bit of a drama queen. I think he could give MJ a run for her money!

Mr Chairman: Sshhhh... no. My legs are sealed.

Sarah: Keep up Sarah! You've obviously lost the plot!
Apologies, you've been away, so you have an excuse.

Kaz: He is quite cute and looked older than he did in Mamma Mia. I have him on video on my phone... but alas, not on speed dial.

MJ: I will love my Beavers in private. They have become my dirty secret.

Mr Jekand: Now you may as well know, I AM free for panto this year. I have already played a kangaroo, a witch and...er... Humpty Dumpty and Alice in Wonderland. I do all my own stunts. I'll get my agent to call you.

CyberPete said...

I LOVE John!

I want him, can I please have him?

eroswings said...

It's Capt John Harkness!

Wow! What a busy bee you've been! But that's why you're sweet like honey.

Madame DeFarge said...

Were that my own week so full of touches of fame. This is a world beyond my ken, constrained as I am by the corridors of power. Does saying 'excuse me' to William Hague match up to your excitement?

Crabbers said...

As the said ,Dave happy not to be there ! In quite way I am not of "Kent"

Scarlet-Blue said...

Pete: I shall deliver him to you, gift wrapped... or possibly send you a DVD?

Mr Swings: Yep, it was a very odd day! And please keep up your sweet talkin' - I like it.

Madame D: William Hague reminds me of Mike Yarwood impersonating Harold Wilson. Isn't this odd?

Crabbers: Oh Crabbers!!! Kent is the garden of England - even the northerly bits! Enough of this Kent bashing - it has been bashed enough!

Crabiers Oh! Kent est le jardin de l'Angleterre - et même le nord bits! Assez de cette Kent bashing - il a été bashed suffit!

Crabbers said...

It is fair!! Let us be fair play! His orchards and his grapevines and also splendid castles, His landscapes are green, his sheep bleat in fields, and the rain falls slowly... No!!... I should not get stuck in the mud, weather is very nice sometimes and even very warm, only the torrential rain arrives when they expect it least...

For "La cage aux folles " written by Jean Poiret in 1973 she was seen by a million spectators! It is nothing!?

My preferred passage;
ALBIN: (staring Georges indicator curved under the pain): What there is?
GEORGE: I received the melba toast in full breast! You are only a sow!
ALBIN: I broke my melba toast!
GEORGE: You have to face the event. To say to you " has just happened to me a hard blow, I have just broken my melba toast, but I am still young, I am going to go back up the slope ". Your tea now. Show I how you drink. That marks a man, the way he(it) which drinks! (Albin takes her cup) go! Swallow I that! Very virile! (Albin drinks with infinitely grace) that as virility, it is Catherine Deneuve! Make I John Wayne! Imitate John Wayne, descendant of his horse to Rio bravo, entering the saloon and taking the tea for sound four hours.

Since finished, I no longer takes toast!!

CyberPete said...

Nice hint Miss Scarlet!

I'm so very sorry. I promise to send it soon.

You know, when the big one points at S and the little one points at oon...

BEAST said...

Enough of this Kent bashing - it has been bashed enough!

Oh I think not , I have two words for you Herne Bay
***shudders***

Dave said...

I still think of myself as being a Man of Kent.

I just wouldn't want to live there.

Gadjo Dilo said...

The first couple of notes sounded a bit dodgey and he looked a bit "straight", but then he got into his stride. Oil give it foive.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Crabbers: I'm sure toast won't make you tilt at an angle.. or walk like John Wayne.
I thought toast was supposed to put hairs on your chest? Well, it does in Kent [all of Kent, not just the northerly bits].

Je suis sûr que toast ne vous rendre à un angle d'inclinaison .. ou de marcher comme John Wayne.
Je pensais que toast est censé mettre les cheveux sur votre poitrine? Eh bien, il ne fait, dans le Kent [tous de Kent, et pas seulement le nord bits].

Peteybunnykins: Blimey you lot are all getting cryptic...
I shall wait for a hand to rest on my oon then...

Mr Beastie: Ramsgate! See I can be rude too..

Dave: True, it's a good pub, but I wouldn't want to live there either.

Gadj: Very good Kent accent..! I try very hard to straighten my vowels, but they still go full circle... for the record I pronounce 'are' and 'our' exactly the same way. [R]
