Who thought Arlene would be better off Strictly than on?
Sugababes version 4, discuss?
The BBC remaking Jane Austen's Emma - AGAIN! Although, I'll gladly admit I have only persevered with Emma because of Johnny Lee Miller (the new Colin Firth?) and cos there's nothing else on.
I can see through Lady Gaga/Madonna-lite even if the rest of the world can't?
Anyhoo, what really started me on the slow burn to infuriation was Tron - is it really necessary to reboot it? I saw this film before I even knew what Star Wars was, I can trace my love for all things computer, cult and sci fi back to this exact film. Are Disney hedging they're bets with a new Disney Princess on the horizon? Does the appearance of Jeff Bridges mean that he's given it movie approval?
So I'm all of a tizzy, just because of four reimagined films - Tron, Alice in Wonderland, Footloose, and Karate Kid.
PS: Grrrr...there are no Hidden Mickeys in this trailer.

I've been reading The Guardian on a Saturday for a while now, and with my cherished Saturdays off work lost for the foreseeable future, I look forward to my weekly read more than ever now. My Saturday morning read of it's supplement ("Weekend") contains an all too short editorial that Jess Cartner Morley and Alex Petrides write on making menswear/womenswear trends accessible.
Their wander in the fashion gender divide is so subtle, yet it often make me laugh and on the odd occasion inspires me. Especially Alex on the menswear side, who always looks like the trend is wearing him rather than the other way around. However after the newspapers published pictures of the 'rocking the boat' pendant attached to Hazel Blears, all these MP's jumping ship, duck houses, all the photos of the rich and famous in the South of France and me standing at the edge of a plank jobwise set me into a deep, dank French Navy mood I took a moment to note how all these themes all seemed to have been designed by some highly paid colour and trend prediction agency, but yet have developed a life of their own.
I'm really not fussed by this move into the blogosphere for the editorial, however it's slightly unfocussed in the pieces she's highlighting bearing in mind who its audience might potentially be. I really was distressed at the Hilfiger jacket - it offends me with it's charity shop lariness. And I will gloss over the fit of the pockets of her 7/8ths, along with the colour of her toenails.
Mood status - is it possible a Londoner could be in a New York State of mind?

I bought this new universal special zipper foot from Prym, it looks like a outcast from a Lego Star Wars set. The wedding dress is almost finished, bar the straps, the zip, and the diamontees. For the design, the ivory silk habotai G (the bride) bought was too lightweight and crisp for the design, and the lining fabric was such a disaster on my machine that I'm so pleased that I've got to the end, but I'm not sure that I love it.
