Is this the most loathsome advert for a book signing you have ever seen?
"Meet Gerri Halliwell
Please note that Geri Halliwell will only be signing copies of her Ugenia Lavender series. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment. The duration of the signing is discretional."
I wonder if armies of fans clutching copies of the Spice World DVD left disappointed?

It abounds, the splodgeness
Definitely a blast from the past. Splodgenessabounds played a comeback gig in Edinburgh to a crowd of punks 'n' skins of a certain vintage. I saw the series with that fool from Kiss, Rock School I think, and Max Splodge was his chaffeur. He lost favour somewhat when he mentioned the Splodge had more chart success in the UK than Kiss did. More recently they have developed an obsession with Ghengis Khan and have written a series of songs around the theme (e.g Mongols in London), Max has even had his DNA tested and yes, he is related to Ghengis.

Parents in Glasgow are going into occupation of a school over the Easter break in protest at the proposed closure of a series of schools and nurseries across the city. The bailout of the banks will need to be paid for and that will mean big cuts in public spending. Expect to see more fightbacks like this in the future. We need to draw a line in the sand and say no more.
