Pantotime

Posted by Jeni in Ad Infinitum | 5 December 2007

It's late.

OH! NO IT ISN'T.

OH! YES IT IS.

I've just come back from Jim's first night in 'Mother Goose'.

OH! NO YOU HAVEN'T .

OH! YES I HAVE.

There was so much traffic, and an accident coming back that it felt like I was time travelling. The headlights were shining in my mirror.

LOOK BEHIND YOU!

I will write about it in detail.

OH! NO YOU WON'T.

OH! YES I WILL.

But right now, sadly, it's bedtime.

Aaaah!

It's sadder than that.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!.

cul8ter.

OH! NO YOU WON'T

OH! SHUT UP.

Hi jeni,
I think it is very touching that so many people feel they can share their problems, desires, wishes, decisions with you, you must feel proud to incite this in your bloggers, I would be. I just wanted to say hope all goes well with Martin and David, and i hope whatever decision they make or wherever they live, may they be very happy. I wish them well. Take care xx

Ahh... the wonderful Pantomime season that our American cousins find so hard to fathom. Men dressed as women, women dressed as men and the leading man is a thigh-slapping girl. Sounds like a Saturday night out in Old Compton Street.

As the greatest Pantomime Dame in the business Danny La Rue retorted after being asked by an American to summarise Pantomime, “It’s a lot like you do... Only you do it in real life!”

Dear Agony Jeni,

Pantomime time means it is close to Christmas and I wonder if you can answer a question that has troubled me for years?

As the festive season draws nearer and you wonderful ladies enter the race to choose a gift for the men in your lives, can you please explain to me why the race almost always ends in a tie? (Credited to the late, great Bob Monkhouse).

Well I am hugely flattered to be called “Young Phil” by the Lady Barnett. I cannot remember the last time anyone referred to me as young, apart from all the Thai sweeties who regularly shout, “You velly handsome man. I love you long time”...but they don’t count as I am old enough and so cynical enough to know they don’t see me as Brad Pitt, more a walking ATM. Furthermore, I certainly would never dare take them up on their generous but astigmatic offer as, with one sweep of her kitchen knife, Siam Suzie would turn me into a Ladyboy. Such is the wrath of the Aries woman.

Keep it up kind Jeni. As I recently said to the lady stamp collector, “Philately will get you everywhere” Enjoy your weekend!
