Blog: Popular In Poplar

< previous next >
I had a VARIED weekend this weekend just gone. On Saturday I went back to the land of my ancestors to meet Mr CM Smith and watch Peterborough United play Colchester. It was... well, I think you can gather best how it all went by reading the "astonishing twitter rant" unleashed by the Chairman shortly afterwards. Spoilers: he wasn't happy.

Afterwards I met Mr P Myland who summarised the situation by saying "I do enjoy going, it's just the football that's interminable". WISE WORDS. Whilst in the pub I was surprised to see Mr G Gilchrist in the company of various Leicester cohorts, having a pint on their way home from the Straw Bear Festival in Whittlesey. It was lovely to see them, though when I went back to my seat I thought "How funny, to still be palling around with the same people as when I knew them all 10 years ago back in Leicester." It was only on the way home that I realised I'd spent MY time in the pub with somebody I'd known since I was eleven!!

Saturday may have been slightly TRYING on the Live Event front, but SUNDAY brought some DELIGHTFUL news, for LO! mine and Mr J Dredge's short film The Job Interview has been accepted for the Loco Local Comedy Film Festival! I've actually just got home from posting them a copy on DVD, it's all VERY exciting. We're both going to go, and John's even going to be on a PANEL!

I must admit to being a) pleased b) a bit surprised by how WELL this film has gone down so far. We're hoping to enter it for some more things, but in the meantime we've got to get going on doing the next one!
