It’s possible there’s a more bizarre thing being advertised on television, but I haven’t seen it

29 Jan

So, like, really, what’s up with that show they’re advertising on Channel 9: A Year with the Royal Family narrated by Cate Blanchett. Like, why is she doing that? I mean I’d do it. In a heartbeat. But she’s Cate Blanchett. And I, quite obviously, am not.

    Is it an old production – from before she was so successful?
    Could they have asked her to do it FOR ENGLAND?
    Might she have spied a new $4000 handbag she liked and worked for the weekend to have it?

    I have so many questions.

    if i had $4000, i certainly wouldnt be spending it on a handbag.

    It seems to be new, bb.
    I might buy a handbag for $4000 – it would depend what’s in the handbag.

    I reckon it’s what Carly said … but yeah, I wouldn’t do it if I was her. Or even if I was Helen Mirren.

    Ha ha!
    Phil mistook her for a technician and asked her to plug some cable or other.
    Actually, that’s probably a watered-down version by Palace request.
    Teh stoopid!

    oh no! was it on tonight? And there I was watching America’s Next Top Model. Obviously, I was so confused with the ads that I forgot to notice what time the shows were actually on.

    Did they talk about Diana?

    Missed top model this week – who got knocked out? My new favourite is the one with the gappy teeth now that the one with the luscious lips has gone.

    (I think it’s a sign of mental health and correct priorities that I can’t actually remember their names)

    It was a double episode finale! You missed it! Jade got knocked out, then the one with the gappy teeth won. I only ever remembered Jade’s name. I never remember the names of contestants, and I feel the same way you do about it.

    I was going to say, it’s because she’s in training to become Helen Mirren.

    I had wondered that myself. I think perhaps blackbird is right…
