Jerry Springer the Opera

Posted 09-01-2005 at 10:13 by Acrylic-bob (Madder Lake is my favorite colour)

Jerry Springer the Opera. BBC2, Saturday 8th Jan 10pm-12 Midnight.

I thought it was low, vulgar, gratuitously offensive and in execrable taste.
I loved every seedy, scandalous second!
The performances were gutsy and punchy and the staging was quite good too. Sadly though, the music and the lyrics were not in any way memorable. It was a performance that owed more to burlesque and pantomime than anything else and, for some reason, put me in mind of medieval mystery plays. As satire and musical theatre it works very well indeed, but as opera it fell flat on itís a*se, sitting uneasily between the two genres and merely nodding its head in the direction of opera from time to time. I suppose using Actors who can sing,...

All over

Posted 04-01-2005 at 17:25 by lettie

Have finally dismantled the tree and took down all my cards. It's funny how bare the living room looks without them. I should really have enjoyed my last day of freedom before going back to work, but due to the fact that I have been enjoying all my other days off I have got nowt done and the house looked like a pig sty. Today has been a major cleaning up and sorting out day. I haven't had time to itch. Found out that my little nephew has acquired headlice. These were discovered on New Year's day. My mum told me yesterday and I've been itching ever since. despite ploughing through my hair I cannot find the cause of the itch, so it is psychological itching. May call round and see my niece tonight. Think I'll ring my sister first just to make...

Sleepless in Accy

Posted 02-01-2005 at 05:28 by lettie

Woe is me. Decided to opt for an early night last night as I felt that NY Eve and the night shifts had finally caught up with me. Needless to say I had a good sleep, but was wide awake at 4am!!! That's the thing I hate about nights. It takes me ages to get back into day mode. Some boffin in America did some research a few years ago pertaining to shift workers. Somehow he managed to calculate that working shifts knocks about 5 years off your life. I didn't need a boffin to tell me that. Looking on the bright side, they'll be the last 5 years, when you can't remember your name or control your bladder and you wish you were dead anyway!!

Off out today for high tea with the Accy webbers. Going out for a meal with Sparky first, which...

Days off... Yipeee!!!

Posted 31-12-2004 at 08:52 by lettie

I now have a few days off and I'm so glad. Work hasn't been a bit christmassy this year, despite what one of my colleagues said in the telegraph. The atmosphere has been very subdued due to an unforseen tragedy and the recent loss of a colleague. Decided to stay up all day yesterday after my night shift. I would normally go to bed for 3 or 4 hours then get up at lunchtime, but I always end up feeling very hungover for the rest of the afternoon, so I thought I would try to stay up and just have an early night. What a mistake that was. I went into town in the morning and took the dog out. By lunchtime I was starting to feel very nauseas. I ended up having a couple of hours kip in the afternoon. When I got up I managed a shower and that was it,...
