One liner Wednesday: For Rhonda…

In a break from tradition, for today’s one liner I’m actually using a genuine quote, just as it comes, with no gags or alterations. I’m dedicating it to Rhonda, who did me the great honour of marrying me, one year ago today.

“If I get married, I want to be very married.”

– Audrey Hepburn.

Life Cherries guest blog. The last Movie Star…

Well, the posts are coming thick and fast this week. Here’s something that I put together for Lanthie at her Life Cherries blog over in South Africa.

It’s on somewhat of a specialist subject for me, an icon of the Golden Age of Hollywood who I have admired for many years.
I never expected to be able to fully do her whole career justice in the time and space I had available, so instead I’ve just tried – with the aid of some great photos – to give you a glimpse into the life of an extraordinary star of the silver screen who I still consider to be the most beautiful woman ever.

The post itself was a bit of a performance, given my lack of a computer, technical knowhow, and stubborn insistence on using my smartphone for everything, like some sort of self-imposed lateral thinking puzzle.
The main problem was the fact that our blogs are hosted on different platforms (same with Matt at Ramblings of a Semi-Mad Man) so I couldn’t post directly to Life Cherries. Therfore I had to download a word processing app for my phone (which, I discovered, gave me all sorts of capabilities for photo placement/fonts/coloured backgrounds, etc that I didn’t have on my WordPress blogging app, and I must admit I got slightly carried away. {Sorry about that Lanthie})

Anyway, after I was politely informed that doing all this fancy stuff would make it unnecessarily complicated for those unfortunate bloggers, thousands of miles away, to “format my document” (whatever that means) I managed to drag, drop, copy, cut, paste, and edit my way to something I was happy with and e-mailed it off to the ever-patient Lanthie.

Despite being snowed under with business meetings, rehearsals for a show she’s performing in and writing her own blog, and all this whilst fighting off a nasty cold, she heroically battled with my bodged document until the she produced the finished article that I’m posting today.
Or rather, that Lanthie posted today.

So here it is, my first South African post, which is also posted on The guest list… page.
