You see this is how it was meant to work. Motty is kind enough to meet me a couple of weeks ago. He possibly mentions the strange pasty-faced guy he shook hands with, to Gary Lineker who generously spares me some of his time. Gary then gives the nod to David Gower, who does likewise. Perhaps Rory McGrath or Johnathon Ross next, who knows?
Neither can I underestimate the role played by Diana, the agent to both Gary and David, who may well have pulled some strings herself. Thanks so much.
I Just thought at this point that I'd mention a completely true story, because I know that a certain friend of mine is amongst the 1000 or so people per day who look at this site, and she also is very interested in analysing dreams.....
It's just gone 11.20 monday morning and I have been in work no more than 10 minutes. I was still asleep only 90 minutes ago, and was disturbed by this really vivid dream where I was standing by the lake in Kenwood House minding my own business, when a duck with a really sharply chiselled beak and white pupils flew out of the water and started to go beserk and attack me. I woke up, heart pounding, to find that my pillow had ripped and my bedroom had a new carpet of feathers. Weird, no?
I made it into work though, and in between the email confirming my booking for the speed-dating event and the email trying to sell me a cruise, I spotted one whose subject simply read "David Gower". I believe it was actually penned, or fingered I guess, by the cricket legend himself.
He mentioned that he would be in town this thursday and suggested an appropriate meeting place. What a complete and utter gent !
Finally further to another email I received from a girl/lady? called Amy, yes the clown in the post below is from Stephen King's film IT (though I shall probably be sued by Miramax now for admitting that), and yes it was a terrifying film.
