Socks and Muppets...
Good morning young bloggers. Thursday dawning mild here with some real springlike temperatures expected. It may even be time to venture into the spring wardrobe today (thinner cardigan and socks). I intend to cut a sartorial dash across Radio 2 today.
(One hour later) Now revising my rash statement of warmth as clearly the fog is freezing and actually thicker socks are needed. It's all so confusing.
Thick socks needed for The Hunger Games (I know that's tenuous but if you wear thick boots to run for your life from a wild kid, then you'll need the socks. Just go with it.). Early screening yesterday to interview Jennifer Lawrence and was not disappointed. It is the grimmest 12A really but for all the right treasons. You have a knot in the pit of your stomach for the last hour which is quite appropriate given the savage nature of the film. Child 2&3 both declared it to be a hit and predict an uptake in interest in archery very soon. See film for details.
Loved meeting the Tops and the Temps yesterday. Duke Fakir and Otis Williams looked exactly like you'd hope Motown legends would look. Elegant clothes, bling (but too much) and big smiles to go with their their big back catalogue of hits. They moved and grooved to each others songs like they were recorded yesterday.
And oldies...well how about MUPPET songs please. You can have this 2 ways really. 'Muppets' is what, according to the article in the New York Times, clients are called by managing directors at Goldman Sachs. Or you can have the traditional Muppets: Fozzy, Kermit, Miss Piggy, Animal et al. MUPPET oldies will do I think.
Have a spring-like (but prepared for wintry moments) Thursday, see you after 5
