This morning's celebrity cameo

by Suw on October 1, 2003

Eddie Izzard. I dreamt I was attempting to break the record for distance travelled in a hot air balloon over land, except I hit a tree and the balloon came down outside some old public* school building. The balloon was owned by Eddie Izzard, who was none too chuffed that I'd holed it.

I'll apologise to him next week.

*For those of you who don't understand the UK schooling system, public schools are private, i.e. require you to pay fees for the attendance and ritutal humiliation of your children. Private schools are also private, but state schools are public and therefore free so long as you don't think too hard about how much you pay in taxes.

Dreamt last night that I was the world authority on Tintin books and that I was over in France showing my multi-lingual collection of antique Herge books to the amazed crowds.

(I do actually have one from 1950 in French: “Le Pays De L'Or Noir” the one where Johnson and Johnson turn green and grow long hair. It's what inspried me to learn French). I now collect one from every country I go to in thge language of that country. It's a good way of learning the language (and getting some interesting swearwords and exclamations from Captain Haddock – Crancod Ceinewydd!.)

Hwyl! Nwdls

I can just see the title of your first best-seller already – Captain Haddock's Handy Exclamations.

It'll make you a mint, you know it.
