Of course there's Wimbledon at the moment as well (which is handy live weather forecast as it's only up the road!) but with the rain it's all repeats...
One of the DVD's I've been watching is Eddie Izzard's live boxset. He is hilarious, I've seen all of these shows at least five time each but they still crack me up.
One of my favourite lines is from "Definite Article". He's talking about a tube ticket inspector who caught Eddie without a fare: "He'll be promoted in the underground system. He'll get it his own darkness."
Funny enough I have a bit of Claim To Fame when it comes to Eddie. KB knew him in the 80's when they used to perform together in Covent Garden (Eddie started as a street performer) and one day after their "show" they went to a Pizza Hut and decided to send me a paper placemat from their table.
Why? Who knows!
They wrote a message, my name and address in Finland (I'd gone back there for a while), stuck a stamp on it and sent it.
And to everyone's amazement it actually arrived! It had Eddie's signature on it, I didn't think anything of it back then of course and put it in the bin.
If I had known... it would've been one of the weirder Eddie collectables on Ebay no doubt!
The bonfires will be lit on Friday (the Juhannus eve) to ward of the evil spirits and depending on the weather we're hoping to have a little "kokko" of our own.
Talking about longest days, I've had the longest week of my life with this bloody back! There's only so much daytime television one can watch!
I made the mistake of not lying down and resting at all on Tuesday as I felt marginally better and because of that yesterday was agony, after we'd been to the vet with Siouxsie I had to lie in bed for the rest of the day. I was in pain all last night as well, this is getting very very tedious...
Our friends Tero and Riitta got hitched this morning at the Helsinki register office.
It was so low key it didn't even make it onto the "low key weddings" scale - we got a txt message this morning saying they'd done it. No quests, no fuss and they were in fact going back to work afterwards! The nutters!
Tero in the top photo with KB and Riitta in the bottom photo, both taken at the 2003 Ilosaarirock festival, we were all working there.
They're lovely people and make a great couple. I'm really really happy for them!
