The latest from our girl about town
Angel went to the cinema on Saturday to watch the religious epic Exodus – Gods and Kings.
Considering it was all about Moses and considering most of us know a little bit about the Old Testament, she was surprised to hear the following conversation on the way out.
“Did you enjoy it?”
“Well I did, but Julie spoiled it for me. She told me what happened.”
* New Year’s Eve was celebrated by Angel with a few friends. However, she celebrated the midnight chimes a few minutes later than most. .. because just as the countdown reached eight at Trafalgar Square, her host paused the TV, announced she needed the loo, and came back down to let the celebrations recommence at 12.03am.
* That wasn’t the only shocking thing that happened during the evening.
After the fireworks were shown on TV came a live performance by the rock legend Queen,minus, ofcourse, the late, great Freddie Mercury.
Angel’s friend (a different one from the countdown fiasco) remarked that she liked the new singer but thought him too camp. “Freddie was so much more manly. A real macho man,” she opined.
* Did anyone see that wonderful moon on Tuesday evening?
Driving down the B1165 from Weston Hills towards Sutton St James Angel was wowed by the bright orange moon, sitting so low it almost looked like it was perched on some houses. Beautiful.
* What was not so beautiful on the same journey was the three cars that overtook Angel at speed, one of them on such a tight bend that he had to slam on his brakes to avoid a nasty accident. Angel hopes he will learn.
