doldrums

well, from the last post it is obvious I was very much at home to Mr Wallow on my birthday. Now, however, it's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new post.

(and time to say welcome to the blogosphere, leflange, even if your huge crush on Kevin Pietersen is a little disturbing. )

despite the sad death of ronnie barker causing a mild rush in the normally serene newsroom, things continue quiet. everyone talks about the silly season of august, but in some ways i think october is worse. party conferences must be the dullest thing on earth unless you're there, and even the papers seem to be flagging slightly, now that Kate Moss has locked herself away in America and Pete Doherty has refused to provide them with any more 'drug taker takes drugs' stories. Even the PA wire seems to have less surveys than usual, and only one showbiz story - the scoop that Dannii Minogue says Kylie is recovering 'very gracefully' from breast cancer. There was a brief flurry of excitement when we thought Jade Goody was going to be done for shoplifting a £16 belt, but no, she was released without charge.

the only slightly exciting news is that my friend P and I have decided to take poledancing classes upon my return to the Big Smoke. It was a toss-up with Spanish classes, but in the end I thought, 'What's going to be more impressive at parties? Asking the way to the breadshop in a popular world language, or being able to put my leg behind my head?'

And before you start, it's totally compatible with being a feminist because it's, like, empowering. Like the Spice Girls were.

It's more of a crush than an obsession

Pole-dancing? Great! Next time, if we do actually make it into Reflex (because you flash your boobs at the bouncer *earlier* in the evening this time), you can show us how it is done!
