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

Mary, Queen of Shops

Tonight, a brand new programme starts with the above title. Apparently it's all about a retail guru called Mary Portas, whose mission is to help struggling fashion shop owners find ways of reclaiming the market.

Mmm. Frankly the label "Mary, Queen of Shops" suggests something else entirely to me and when I first heard it, I cracked up with laughter. I'm willing to bet that some of my fellow bloggers will see the funny/ironic side too. Any suggestions, readers?

    Wait. I thought I was "Mary, Queen of Shops"?!?!?

    Aren't I?

    A-ha!! It wouldn't surprise me, Matty!

    But seeing as you qualify, would you care to explain the expression to us readers?
