So, it's astounding to me to think that there are now TWO other blogs out there which were inspired by my own feeble efforts.
Some weeks ago, the dry-as-toast wit of Delmonti appeared in Blogland at this murky address.
And, as of today, my youngest sister has started her own online blog-type-thing with a very appropriate list of 'firsts'. Hoorah!
I can only think that people look at this blog and think, "that's crap. I could do much better". And they're right!
But I can't let this momentous event pass without mentioning some firsts of my own:
- My first time drunk was on whiskey. Lots of it. In a night-club in Egham. I was sick out of the car window on the way home.
- The first film I ever saw at the cinema was Bedknobs and Broomsticks. I was five years old. It was at the old Odeon cinema in Esher, I seem to remember.
- The first time I ate in a Nepalese restaurant will be in about 55 minutes from now. If you ask nicely, I'll tell you what it was like.
