Exploding Coffin Fallout

‘Magical Mystery Tour’ – The Beatles

We’ve been rehearsing LOOT and I don’t really know if it’s good or bad!  Whatever it is, Daniel Abbott and Jodie Ratcliffe have both – a bit petulantly, perhaps? – dropped out.  This was over a row in which The Goodgirl himself (somewhat meteorically) brought to their attention how disorganised he felt they’d been over sourcing the ‘before’ and ‘after’ coffins required in the show.  Basically, they had to find/make a coffin that could ‘explode’, but after almost four months’ notice, they still haven’t (though, admittedly, it's a tall order, it doesn't seem to be beyond Daniel's brilliant and resourceful capabilities) so Larry was angry.

‘Blue Savannah’ – Erasure

Chloe Attenborough’s been making inquiries about me to Tracey Joyce.  Apparently, she wants me to go to the ‘The Disco’ next week, but says she doesn’t want to ‘end up’ like Emma and Gemma did.

I’m back to getting on well with Julian Ward in the middle of all this and I’ve actually only spoken to Chloe once, when I asked her if she’d usher for LOOT.

I saw Fergie today and I really love her.
