Here you go readers a little something from my good self conjured up with a brew in one hand. Good to see the Turner prize has made the papers a mannequin on a toilet with horse shoes and a few other bits. Nice. My image I'm not gonna explain but let it be known I'm hurting inside I do have feelings, I've been listening to easy music, I may have digested a couple of romantic comedy's over the last few weeks. I'll say No more.

On returning from NYC I've visited Blackpool and used a bank machine for little people,walked to pleasure beach,visited St. Anne's. I've visited "WallyOaks" land aka Chester in the rain ate sarnies in the rain drank a brew in the rain, its very beautiful there. Dicovered the Lady Lever Art gallery in the Wirral. Yes readers the people of the Wirral let this lad from Donny into its borders? The Lady Lever Art gallery houses the biggest collection of wedgwood ever and some gear which featured on episodes of Lovejoy with Ian Mcshane or I could have made that last bit up. Plus it does a nice brew there in a shakespearean ye olde tea room that bit is True? I've woke up one morning and joined a Mega Bank without doing any paper work. Howard, call round mine for a brew we shall talk about your career paths now I'll make the Tea. I took part in a pub quiz at the Common in the Northern Quarter in Manchester our team came second and walked away with beers, a toy mobile phone and one pink cowboy hat to match my western shirt which makes me look like an extra from Brokeback Mountain. I even did some doodles, Even visited the cinema to watch a gangster flick and eat in an establishment which served Pizza and diet cola and talk dialogue of NYC "Now that's Magic"?
NYC was amazing; art galleries, irish bars, pretty ladies, dawgs, cawfee, blueberry pie,5th avenue,american football,apple pie,sneakers,poland springs, central park, joggers,comic book stores,wraps,smoothies,broadway,toys,coldplay,subway even a romantic movie on the flight over there? and more. I bought and wore one Tee which caused people to think I was from Miami. Miami eh? I want to visit "hell Yeah". If only to meet eccentric comic book store owners and check the fashion on Miami beach.

Dear Barbara! its X factor audition time again innit? Pictured above is 22 year old, William Fox Smith who's sacrificed a lunch break with the tarmac crew to show Simon Cowell, Louis, Danni and Cheryl what talent he has got.William explained to Dermot "I got fired from my Canary Wharf financial job for regularly singing old Wham numbers in board meetings four months ago", William went on "The final straw which clinched his sacking at a top Canary Wharf office was the singing and dance routine he put together for the Lighthouse family hit 'Lifted' it was at the annual AGM". Asking about his employment now Dermot learnt William had took a part time job with a Tarmac crew where his duties involved doing the sarnie run and making the tea. William continued about his upbringing "Things got really bad for me after passing my driving licence and having being bought a Ferrari, his dad gave him grief", William explained " Yes Dad would make me rise early in the morning at 8.30am and make me move my Ferrari, so dad could get the Bentley out the drive so he could go to work, this ordeal went on till I moved out Dermot last week" he went on "I've traded the Ferrari for an Audi to make the move". Dermot looked pained "this is terrible", shakes his head to the camera. Asking William can you win the X Factor. William nods its "Shit or Bust" he enters the room to face Simon Cowell for his audtion.

Readers check the movie "The Wendell Baker Story" I loved this film with Luke Wilson [ Old School] who plays Wendell Baker a dreamer whose latest scam lands him in jail, losing his long-term girlfriend [ Eva Mendes - Hitch]. Determined to make the most of his time behind bars, Wendell vows to turn his life around. Upon release he gets a job at a retirement hotel makes new friends who help him win back his girlfriend. This film is funny in my book I just haven't heard people talk about it.
Well today its my sisters birthday "Happy Birthday Jen" just thought I'd mention you on my blog, its not raining outside at the time of writing. But I've heard there is to be a massive downpour over the next two days. I'm one day closer to my NYC trip. Reet I need a cup of tea.

He also draws and paints he's a Cool Kat. I've linked him onto my mates section read more about him.

One day readers I will get that beach holiday where; I will stroll down a beach like this one pictured; with a loved one maybe a tanned brunette she'd be wearing the latest bikini from some trendy boutique. I'll be in my olive green shorts, oxford blue shirt and straw hat,crevat and shades. Maybe drinking something tropical with a blend of pineapple, mango and some ice.
This morning as I turned my calendar over to reveal another new month and another photograph of a WAG to some footballer, Peter Crouch I think. I felt a chill in the air and I saw a few leaves fall from the view out my window and at least one person wearing Berry tones I even saw a Robin which conjured up thoughts of the festive season which is kicking off in the stores. All the thoughts of Autumn being on route made me think of all these eager students starting a brand new academic year armed with a new pencil case, ipod and books; teachers feeling refreshed after there holidays counting the days to the next holiday. Scrap those thoughts I need a brew? See the painting above a new work by Dylan lisle who's been mentioned before on this blog. Go on commission him to paint a loved one in your life.
