My weekday evenings are getting boring. I sat watching telly all night last night.

I had recorded something on the history of light entertainment from earlier in the week. A famous Television Producer called Michael Hurl came on talking about Cilla Black. I'm fully aware that famous people have no idea how the rest of us live but when he said (and i quote, word for word here) "She worked like mad, she rehearsed from 9 in the morning until 5 at night,  FIVE DAYS A WEEK!"  I nearly put my foot through the screen. Imagine that eh? 9 till 5, FIVE DAYS A WEEK!!. WOW,  Now that's what i call dedication.

Then i watched something on the Banking Crisis and nearly put my foot through the telly again. RBS Chairman Fred 'the shred' Goodwin and his smarmy mush with that £300,000 a year pension paid for by the tax payer after he walked away from the bank he just banked.

So how about some light viewing instead ?. Get the porn out. That's better and little less annoying. ;-)
Except the bloody DVD player packed in half way through and i had to go on the Internet instead.
Frustration is not the word.

I had a leaflet pushed through my door earlier today for the local adult learning centre. It listed enrolment information for courses running through spring/summer 2012.
amongst those that caught my eye and made me laugh were,

Art for the terrified (£56),
Funky fabric jewellery(£22.40),
Beauty on a budget (£58.50),
Design and make a silk scarf (£21.00)  

& Blogging for beginners (no fee) LOL.
Blogging is obviously not worth paying to learn. Ha!

Art for the Terrified sounds as if it could be, erm, interesting? What is there to be terrified of, unless one has to draw nudes — or be the model? ;)

Anyway, if you've got 56 quid in your pocket just shouting, "Spend me! Spend me!" you could do worse. Gets you out of the house and away from the telly (though not in that sequence of events).

Never thought about nudes, MMMmmmmm.
No hang on a minute. I've seen programs about nude models for art classes. They're always old men and women. The sort who look like school teachers when they've retired.
;-) LOL

Well, this could be different. And you'll never know if you don't go have a look-see.
