Diary of an old cheeser

Hi there! Like other blogs, this is my chance to wax lyrical (some might say talk utter cr*p) about a) what's happening in my life b) all of my pet obsessions in particular music, tv, movies, books and other generally connected things, quite often of the retro, old and "cheesy" variety. Hence the title of my blog. Feel free to leave a comment if the mood takes you. There's nothing like a good chinwag about one's favourite topics and besides I love to meet new people! Cheers, Simon

Reasons To Be Cheerful, Part One

Well Reason Numero one is ... my new iPod Nano. Yes I am sooo happy that I have something decent to play my music on and keep me company whilst I'm out and about. And my visits to the gym have improved considerably, now that I have my favourite tunes to power me along and get me sprinting on that running machine. And I've got nearly 400 songs on my "pod", so there's sooo much to chose from. I like having it switched on "shuffle" as you never know what's going to come next. One minute it's Daft Punk, the next it's Bucks Fizz. In case you hadn't gathered, I have truly eclectic musical tastes.

    My camera never lies... Pictures of you in the gym, please!

    I used to love my nano -- then I got --- an iPod and my life forever changed! ...for the better.

    You know, I used to enjoy going to the gym and watching flabby people turn into early 80 porn stars. I would wear a cute band around my head and prance about singing at the top of my lungs. But, somewhere along the way I lost interest.

    ...I think it was all the sweating and the fact that management kicked me out that day I decided to skip my normal song and went into a rousing version of "Heart Attack"

    Why Minge - that's me in the photo! Didn't you realise?

    Matty - I am disgusted to hear that you were evicted from your gym for singing "Heart Attack". How they can diss one of Olivia's classics? Surely it kept all the other gym attendees entertained.

    Well, you know I would have thought so, too. But, evicted I was!

    You look incredibly like Olivia Newton John. Or a nude Brazillian.

    Matty - well, that's positively outrageous!

    Minge - yes, but can you guess which of those two is me?

    Okay. I officially give up. I just sang "Have You Never Been Mellow" to a fellow patron at the cafe and I was escorted out. Go figure.

    Maybe standing on the counter top was a bit too far, but I was trying to make a very valid point.
