Oh no, I’m getting flashbacks. That really has to go down as one of the most sensationalist, dehumanising pieces of cr... “journalism” I’ve had the misfortune to witness.
We might just have witnessed the birth of "crurnalism" with that. It was definitely more "witness the witless" than it was "witness the fitness". (Yes, that was an outdated Roots Manuva reference there.)

But there was also that other nonsense bit, wasn't there, where Dooley looked at a model on a shop poster or a magazine cover (I can't remember which) and said something like "If you told me she was 12, I'd believe you."

Which surely only proves the lengths she would go to to cater to her own misconceptions.

I don't really like her and my sister told me a bit about it so I've not seen the programme before. Don't intend to really but it doesn't sound the best.

She won strictly she is now more popular than ever most people were on her side in that whole comic relief debate. Which I found to be her far bigger failure.

I’m likely going to go for it, my favourite band and a comprehensive collection.

Dreams are odd things. There's a theory they're the extra-terrestrial/dimensional overseers of Experiment Earth wirelessly extracting our memories for further study the mind sorting and cataloguing experiences you've had while awake from short term to long term memory. If that's the case, then a couple of nights ago my mind did a comprehensive backup of pretty much every TV show I've consumed over about the last year, so great was the number of characters and locations that made an appearance. I wasn't sure if I should be a little concerned, since that's the kind of complete backup you tend to do when you think the storage device is likely to fail not long after.

I wouldn't ordinarily have bothered mentioning that, but here I am a few days later and I've experienced the most vivid, interesting and original dream I've probably ever had (at least that I can remember). It was so fascinating to me I immediately sat down and filled eleven pages of a notebook describing it and turning it into a story outline. I've not written any fiction for a long time since I always thought my ideas were too derivative, but I managed to write more in one morning than I'm expected to for my written uni assignment I still have nine weeks to complete. It feels a bit like I've had a Zak McKracken moment, like all that stuff the other day was being filed away to make way for some important information I'm supposed to do something with.

Although, they say it's a fictional universe and well....

IKR? You go to a galaxy far, far away and read their history books

If they don't have anything about jedi there, well that's impossible, perhaps the archives are incomplete

It has to be real, how else did they film it? There was no CGI back in 1977! People argue with me saying they used models. That's just crazy, have they seen the death star? It's huge, like a moon, how much plastic would they need to make a model of that? Madness I tell you, madness 😂
