A funny thing on the way home from the shops

Well would you believe it. There I was getting off the tram after meeting my other half for lunch, lo and behold a guy stops me. A guy with a microphone and a friend with a tv camera, no less. He asked if I spoke English, which of course I do, well as best you can being from Essex. So asked me a couple of questions regarding a local building and then filmed me walking down the road. I so wish I was carrying something designer instead of Coop and C&A bags. But there you have it, if it goes to air I will be a CNN star

And you didn't ask when it would be on air??? Or was that just because you didn't wear something designer...

I can quite understand why they chose you though, if you were dressed like your Avator!

Re: A funny thing on the way home from the shops

Ha ha, its a news item on CNN and to be honest I didn't even think to ask. I don't actually own anything designer so couldn't ask to run home and change . Least I had some makeup on. Might not even make it to air, but was a bit of excitement in my day. Suppose I really represent what I am so that's the good thing, the view of the ordinary housewife going about her daily business.

Re: A funny thing on the way home from the shops

I am organizing a porn film for your 40th. They have just filmed the intro.
The rest involves 10 guys coming round tonight, a large table and something called Branston.

I swear...

Re: A funny thing on the way home from the shops

Well thanks boys for derailing my thread, UTH being the main culprit as usual

It was a most serious news item don't you know. Just hope they don't edit me or I could be in trouble

But anyhow, if you happen to watch CNN and see a blonde girlie dressed all in black, walking along with my super trendy C&A and Coop bags, trying not to look at the camera that will be me.

Bit better than my last TV appearance which was on Most Haunted Live, and no I wasn't a witch or pretend ghost

Oh and I am not a cockerney when you hear me speak either!
