No Sex and The City


Wht's up with blogger today? I have had to post this entry three times now! anyhow I am off to Manchester today
(yes Manchester, where the locals pronounce the City's name as Man-chest- O (O as the O in Orange)
Anyway, I am having an overnight visit with friend Nigel, which doesn't mean that the pair of us will be donning our sequinned hot pants to swish our way down canal street like a pair of over-the-hill queens......oh no........ we are off to do "coffee", an arthouse movie at the Cornerhouse Cinema and a visit to Tatton Hall tomorrow!
And I shall back to Wales tomorrow afternoon...just in time to assess just how any more apericubes William has passed in a 24 hour period......

  8. Now, see, my mom pronounces it "ah-runge" but I pronounce it "Ornj." So I still don't know how to say Manchester.

    Does this mean Chris is in charge of the zoo for a day? I do wish he'd write a post or two; I'm dying to hear things from his side. :)

  10. Ahhh, Manchester! The first city I saw after landing at Heathrow from New York in 1974!! And coffee, yes, coffee - I'm an American who does NOT like coffee. I drink tea (from the fridge, horrors!) Anyway, the lovely sister of the friend I was traveling with had bought instant coffee just for me, not knowing how strange I was. I felt so bad when I declined it that I thought I should drink it anyway so as not to hurt her feelings!!!

  17. Now, when you say the "O" is pronounced, I'm not sure I know what that means. How exactly does someone from Wales pronounce "orange." Americans have a quite a few drastic variations.

    And admit it. You're wearing those sequined hot pants right now.

  18. Saw a tele show the other day with Sean Bean tottering around Manchester in drag.

    Slightly worried that I though he looked ok...

    WTF are apericubes?
