i thanked my team and my producers then was ushered off stage to the sound of my ad playing out to a tough crowd! haha i got a hug from the big boss and me piccie taken grasping the bit of glass with me name on it...
i've never won an award at a ceremony before, I've had a certificate in the post, and had a double header win but the other person's name was on it (i'm not bitter... much! haha) so this is my first oscar moment! haha they didn't even wanna give me the mic to say anything but i insisted... gosh i was quite tipsy too...

is it just me? or is hearing about school shootings, the cost of living and the crazies on the street over breakfast just too much?!
i want to start a good news channel - and no religion thanks very much! how did they hijack the brand that is good news anyways? all religion ever seems to do is cause wars!
if i had the time and the resources i reckon good news in the morning would set everyone up for a better day, a better attitude to other human beans...
i had a random convo on the weekend with my man and his sis about how if you have a nervous scared attitude with people in the street, in the evryday they smell it like a dog, its part of how human beans have survived on this planet so long, they can sense unease, or danger... but we can also create unease which turns into danger if misinterpreted, basically we're all just misunderstood! haha
a guy who's blog i love to read had a situation of misunderstanding recently - you can read about it here - why would someone behave like that to another human being? road rage has occurred i think because of the false sense of territory cars have created for us.. its a natural instinct for a human bean to feel like king of his castle in his own space, and a car recreates this making people who invade this space intruders and to be defensive of... or something, anyways what i mean is people are very rarely that rude close up on the street, even on the high street on the busiest saturday before christmas! its because evolution gives us a survival instinct that says don't cause trouble, keep your head down and stay alive! haha but the car takes away the eye contact which makes people behave in such a rude manner... the man who spat in my friends face, he too had a physical seperation between him and his victim - what a tough guy! he obviously had other sht going on to behave in such a disgusting manner, maybe he had been genuinely ripped off in the past and was taking it on my friend... but it doesn't make it right!
people are funny lot, if you take a step back from most situations you can see a whole lot of confused going on! haha
and the thing with all this bad news making people distrust each other is, if i didn't hear it for a year -would my life be any different? do these wars abroad, crazies in other towns really effect my day to day? seems to me all it does is sell papers, who sell advertising, who want you to buy stuff...
so let's see if i can get good news going on cos i have had enough of the bad stuff!

the smoking ban in England on july 1st meant the familiar table top friend has disappeared!
i suppose theyv been sold off to non-fascist countries where you can smoke where you like hehe, i'm JOKING! i happen to agree with the ban since i've never smoked and hate seeing my loved ones sucking away on the cancer sticks! it DOES help them quit because social smoking is just peer pressure for grown ups! similarly social drinking is subject to this ridiculous peer pressure, but that's another blog...
but having enjoyed the more glam reclaimed ashtraay for makeshift jewellery pots in the past it occured to me that suddenly there was a mass mountain of ashtrays somewhere gathering dust!
sounds like an entry for the turner prize! haha tracy emin eat your heart out!
it certainly must be time for a coffee table edition lamenting the loss of this sometimes very stylish everyday item... well i'm not busy January so.... hehe
i'm moving to birmingham to be with my man, you know how it is, nothing ventured nothing gained...
i'm currently seeking a new job but i think i can just about manage if January is a chill-out yoga fest! haha but someone has to fund my fashion fixes so i'm very much putting myself out there, so if you know anyone who needs a creative type in the midlands do let me know! haha
the dole queue beckons... haha
