Saturday! Saturday!!

Mutterings continued.

Thank you Elton.

Nice day - not too cold, not too warm and I think there was a drop of rain overnight.

Did the usual boring grocery shopping this morning and the only shiny thing purchased was a Virgin SIM for my spare phone. I got a phone call from Telstra this afternoon - the young chap was most surprised that I don't use my land line very often. Or my mobile, for that matter. So he gave me 125 free SMSs a month. Which is good as I use SMSs a lot more than anything else. I think it's because I can read better than I can hear.

The cast for Cosi is almost set - Grant was seeking one more cast member, one who can act and play the piano. He has approached someone who has tentatively accepted the role. More later when it's definite.

Speaking of great casts, I watched Peter's Friends this arvo. While not being perfect, it has some great performances from the likes of Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, Emma Thompson, Phillida Law and Imelda Staunton. Those last three, by the by, would star in the story of my life. Ms Thompson will play me (of course); Imelda Staunton my friend Ashley, and Ms Law as Ash's mother, aka Mam2.
