You will have to forgive me if I do a little jig as I blog today. I am happy. I’ve discovered something that I once enjoyed, then lost, then missed, is back. I was surfing through the listings for a new SKY channel we’ve subscribed to and I found that at 6.40pm every weekday evening they’re screening The West Wing, from episode one, series one. So I’ve seen the first two episodes and I’m hooked all over again. It’s the most stunning writing and wonderful ensemble acting and the situations take my breath away. In its day it was truly innovative television and I loved it more than anything I’d ever watched and now I get to watch it all over again, from the beginning!! I am happy.
One of the things I love about Twitter is all the links I find to other things because I follow some really interesting people. Yesterday I got into a discussion with a dude about writing musicals, all because we shared a willy joke…it’s a long story.
Just this morning I went to the National TV Awards webpage to vote for Downton Abbey and found I could also vote for Miranda and Graham Norton and other programmes I enjoy. Then I signed an electronic birthday card for Michelle Obama, because I could. Then I read a really interesting blog about designing a good ebook cover and then I saw the cover of Joanne Harris’s soon to be published novel, a sequel to the amazing Chocolat. To round off my morning I followed the story told by the hilarious Hugh Bonneville about how the Downton Golden Globe got into a fight with Matt Le Blanc’s Golden Globe on the flight home and was only subdued when Meryl Streep’s Golden Globe stepped in. They now have the thing safely strapped in.
