Forgot to tell you.
Saw a film the other nacht that had Arnold in a full-on fisticuffs sketch mitt Miriam Margolyes! Totally superb. She nearly won as well.
I love old M.M. She is the sort of woman you just know has a gun in her handbag. Was reminded of her just now when I looked in salle de bain mirror. Have taken to wearing black eye make-up again and what with me curly pube-head, I look like a (very slightly) younger M.M. gone gothic.
Must buzz orf now cos there is a Japanese horror remake on at 23:00 (hark at me, gone all Tom Clancy). Thank goodness it's not one of those sub-title jobs. I have to sit, practically, on top of teevers to read 'em. A few weeks back, I set the timer to show a film, billed as: 'An all action engineering thriller.' Turned out not to be 'engineering' but 'espionage'; not half so exciting at all - thought I'd winkled out a new genre.
'Quick, Horace - the widget's about to blow.'
'Save yourself, Felix. I've only got enough WD-40 for one. Run, run for your half-life.'
I would die naked on the floor to see an engineering thriller. Sigh.
