In today's news....

So here it is then, my first blog in ages.....So in the news today did you see the story about 18 year old Kerry Marshall who walked into a bank and pretended to be Katie Price and withdrew over £1,000 from the model's bank account....now I know what you are thinking, Kerry must look quite like Katie to pull off such a stunt...those blonde locks, big boobs, pretty face, pouting lips..............here she is:                                                                                                                                                            

...I really wish I was joking. How on earth did the member of staff think it was Katie Price? ...then again it was HSBC. This was a bank who stopped my card because I purchased a £50 pair of shoes. 

...Meanwhile the weigh loss pill used by Kim Kardashian goes on sale in the UK this week. It can burn 380 calories a DAY!! wow! I really hope Kim does not take an overdose of these pills, her family might come home and find a skeleton with some rather expensive hair extensions poking out of the skull.

Here is the woman in the USA who this week rang 911 to say 'I ate too much food' 

......I would be ringing the emergency services about your haircut, that is criminal.

So pleased that Prince Phillip is out of hospital....Imagine if he died over Christmas? Awful to think....I dont think I could bare a national day of mourning....I mean that would be another day we would not get the rubbish collected... its already over flowing as it is.

Cadbury's Chocolate are spending £6 million on making their bars 'stand up' because they feel that customers cant see them when they are shopping......that'll give the company a boost....(think about it)

Poor old Demi Moore, she is still really suffering from the break up with Ashton Kutcher. She has taken in three chihuahua puppies to take her mind off things. Awwwww bless. If you add up the ages of all three puppies, they are still older than her ex.

Meanwhile in other news: Christmas TV was rubbish!! I think the worst EVER this year....the films were pretty pants! ..however do you find yourself watching films on TV that you already own on DVD just because it 'feels different' ? ....thought so.

This and That

Odd neighbour

You know what, I really do have some very odd neighbours and as time goes on I feel I need to move for my own sanity and security!! So first let me explain about where I live. Its one of two brand new apartment blocks in a small town. Each building holding about 50 or so flats. Its really quite nice.

A few months ago I noticed a guy out in the car park , just wondering around picking up a bits of litter...nothing major. I thought to myself  'well that's nice of him, he wants to keep the place tidy'. Over time I found this gentleman doing more than picking up litter...for example most days he would go in the bin store and sort out the bins that were over flowing and spreading the rubbish into other bins.  Then i saw walking around with a clipboard with paper on it..almost checking things off as he was walking along. Now at this point may I say that the apartments already have a caretaker who comes each day. This 'new' guy was a resident in the building as i had seen him through a window on the bottom door.

I rang up the property management company to ask them who he was etc....they were not aware of anyone employed to do this duties! So since then I have seen this chap talk to some of the contractors who do work within the grounds.  Suddenly, he was out there with them digging up the grass, cutting tree's , trimming bushes  ?!!!! Even after the contractors had gone he had been continuing this 'work'!! He doesn't even change his clothes! he ALWAYS wears this baby blue polo shirt!  and over time, its been getting dirtier and gaining many holes! What is going on!?!  The contractors have been here pretty much everyday for the past two months and he is straight out there helping them.When they are not here, he is either doing more work around the grounds, or standing by the front door with paper work!? So , again I rang the property management company, and they have NO IDEA who he is. lol . ok this is really silly isn't it?

So lets call this guy 'Eddie' as I think that is his name.  This week Eddie has been helping out the contractors lay some new paving stones. I'm not sure who these guys think Eddie is? They either think he is the caretaker OR they know he isn't and they are getting an extra pair of hands for free!

Last week I saw Eddie cutting away some tree's at 8:30pm and I learn tonight he is doing some more work with the paving at 10:45pm!!!!! what is going on? Maybe I should ask him? Its so weird.

Wedding Dress

Kate Middleton's wedding dress is now on display at Buckingham Palace...good idea. most people missed it after spending the royal wedding staring at her sisters arse.

Amy Winehouse

Sad to hear about Amy this week. Interesting to see people leaving cans and bottles of vodka in memory of her...I wonder if that will be the trend of other celebrities who die? People leave them items that sum up their lives?..I would like to think when I die, people will leave a Nandos loyalty card and a Starbucks cup.

Others I have thought off...

Rupert Murdoch    - Mobile Phone and custard pies.

Angelina Jolie -  a huddle of Cambodian orphans 

Ryan Giggs....well, you wont be able to leave him anything or in fact mention he is dead

Film Shocks

A survey this week says that the film 'The Sixth Sense' holds the biggest shock in a film. Its where Bruce Wills's character is in fact dead (it was SO obvious though wasn't it?) . I don't agree, I thought it was Titantic....really did not see the boat sinking?

Katy Perry

Katie Perry has been spotted with blonde hair this week. This is after she accidentally dyed it ginger the other week. I thought it actually looked better ginger than blonde!  Here is her new hair below (she's the one in the middle, not the one with the white hat on).

Talking of the smurfs, I am right in thinking that Smurfette was the ONLY girl smurf? See if an STI went round the village, she wouldn't be able to show her face anywhere!. She'd be that embarrassed she'd turn purple

My first personal blog

So I have done tones of blogs for various radio stations I have worked for in the past 5 years. So lets see how this one goes!  I'll try share some personal observations from stuff I have seen or read within the week.
I'll also have a few bits of gossip on here with some celebrity interviews I get every so often as part of my job!

So here we go then....

Phone Hacking

Journo's at the News Of  The World  totally out of order for the phone hacking scandal. Thousands of people claim they are victims. I was wondering what number do I call to pick up answer phone messages on my 02 mobile phone, is it 901 or News International reception?

Also I don't understand why people were causing a right stink with threats to boycott the paper then buying it on Sunday...Saying the current journalists were 'not to blame'...but hang on if you went to a restaurant and they gave you really bad service or food poisoning, would you go back there a few years later because 'they have got new staff in' ?


I was in the centre of  London the other day (where all the tourists go) and I saw this guy dressed in woman's clothing. He was offering to do portraits using nothing but cigarette ash.......must of been a drag artist?

Big Spender Beyonce

This Beyonce apparently spent £9,000 in 90 minutes whilst shopping for shoes at Selfridges in London......whats that.. £100 every minute?   That's nothing , when I go to Selfridges I spend about £200 in a minute going through their pick n mix.

Rude Mug Shot

Here is a guy who got arrested in the USA this week and decided to put something rude on his forehead when having his mug shot...........Always wanted to know what the lead singer from R.E.M was up to these days.

Video or DVD shop?

Do people still call Video Shops 'Video Shops' . ?  I don't think I have ever heard someone call one 'A DVD Shop before?
I was in my local Blockbuster last week and I said 'have you got Spiderman' , the guy said 'no sorry'.......... 'well can I have batman forever then' , the guy said 'sorry mate, you'll have to bring it back tomorrow'

The Wanted

So boy band The Wanted came in for an interview to work this week, really nice guys. I was passed a note from the record label representative during the interview saying 'No Michelle?'  - for one minute I was trying to work out what it meant! but it was obviously in regards to Michelle Keegan (Tina from Corrie) , she is engaged to Max from the group.
Sometimes artists get a little annoyed if you ask about their personal life (which is fair enough)..so in reality what that 'No Michelle?' note REALLY meant was 'You dare mention ANYTHING about that girl from Corrie and they will kick you in the nuts'

Hear the interview on Sunday afternoon from 2pm
