Well, Halloween tomorrow, and guess what I’ll be doing? Well, you all know what I did last year; that is, if you believe certain newspapers!
Seriously though, I really find Halloween so boring now. Know I’ve said this before but its become so commercialised.
Having just written this, I’ve just this moment had a call from yet another journalist asking what I was doing at Halloween. I must be psychic or had another premonition, but its really true! I gave him the same answer as I gave the other one. “I’ve hurt my foot so can’t really do anything this year”. He sounded a bit disappointed!
Actually, as many of you will know, I have really hurt my foot. It can be quite painful when I’ve done a bit of walking, as also my back. There are a lot of kind people about though and people often open doors for me, even offer me a seat if I happen to be standing on the bus. It’s a bit embarrassing really as I’m not that infirm. Makes it seem like I really am nearly 70 when I’m at least 10 years off of that! (Unless, of course, some decrepit old ‘Halloween witch’ has done an ’age spell’ on me by chanting . . . “Hubble, Bubble. Toil and Trouble”, “Babs Is Here and I’ll Make A Double!”).
Well, you never know!
What else? Maybe some more general gossip!? Well, I am not a one for ‘gossip’ as everyone should know, but it is now apparently being circulated that a certain Robin Hood film I was involved in a couple of years ago, is supposed to be part of some multi million pound conspiracy to prevent the exploitation of Robin Hood’s supposed grave! (Or some such nonsense).
I really couldn’t believe I was hearing this, when all I did was to appear in a short film and interview stating that Robin Hood was definitely not a ‘vampire’ just because he was apparently ‘bled to death’ by the ‘evil Prioress of Kirklees’. I still say that that’s pure and utter clap-trap! (the bit about him becoming a vampire).
I have told the producer so much in a recent letter; stressing that I wanted to completely disassociate myself from any such allegations made about his film. I more-or-less said that such neurotic allegations did not originate with myself, but had been instigated solely as a result of the highly over-active imagination of some senile delinquent! (Probably believes ‘vampires’ are sleeping under her bed as well!).
Well, I guess it takes all sorts! Especially around Halloween!
