"But we were younger then...and we knew the alphabet."

Ohmygod, I am having a total geek moment.

Thanks to last week's Comic Relief 24 Hour Panel People, and some copyright pirate who put it on YouTube, I've finally witnessed the renaissance of Channel 4's Whose Line Is It Anyway?, featuring many of the original panel members.

Okay, it's not the best WLIIA? ever (Not that I went through a phase of watching all 136 episodes on YouTube instead of studying for my supposed Master's degree...), and it needs a damn good bit of editing (I'm kind of missing the point of the whole 'live broadcasting' here, aren't I?), but the very fact of it is amazing. Amazing!

Also, I think they've photoshopped in Clive's, Neil's and Josie's 1995 faces, because they all look exactly the same. The same can't be said for poor, once-beautiful Tony Slattery, though, but we love him all the same.


Oh boo stinkin' hoo, I was going to link to a YouTube compilation vid of Josie Lawrence and Tony Slattery, but APPARENTLY "Channel 4 has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds." Alright Channel 4, don't get your knickers in a twist.

Eee, I'm proper excited for going to see my "obscure 1990s comedians" at the Comedy Store next month now.
Pardon the geekiness, friends. In order to resume normal service, here are some photographs of me wearing clothes:

As you can see, today I've gone for my 'Fred Astaire from the waist down' look.
(Yes, Hermes Pan is totally a style icon, if I say so.)

Shoes:  Dorothy Perkins
Trousers:  River Island via charity shop via Mum's wardrobe
Cardigan:  Principles via charity shop via birthday present last year
Shirt:  Some horrendous shop called Quiz, when I was 18 and had no taste
Belt:  Best Vintage
Hair flowers:  Accessorize

P.S. Trip down Memory Lane: Me 'blogging' on Livejournal in early 2009


  1. I must say, Tony is looking much better than I have seen him recently, by which I mean in Kingdom. But, it is amazing to see the old crew back together :D

  2. the trousers were imported from the Isle of Man to live in my wardrobe

  3. Is that you, Mother? Two comments:

    1) It's very bad netiquette to leave Anonymous comments - makes you look like a h8r, y'see.

    2) If that was a 'give me back my trousers!' hint, you gave them to me fair and square during one of your purges!
