So it was the MTV Summer Party yesterday and it was quite good. Lots of lovely free drinks and for once I was sensible, alternating White wine with water like all good women do.
SO! Tiz my Come Dine with Me this week, and I'm genuinely extremely nervous. Here's my menu:
Smoked Salmon and Avocado served with crème fraiche and
Crusted Rack of Lamb
served with Sautéed Potatoes and Roasted Mediterranean Vegetables
Coffee and biscuits
I've got all my items coming tomorrow and am starting PREP saturday night. They better appreciate this. I just can't wait to get the video edited. I'd totally recommend doing Come Dine with Me yourselves. Its such a lovely way to get together with mates but also an excuse to have a slap up dinner.
In other news I've noticed that Paul Nicholls....
.....Is on a new programme called Harley Street. I've loved Paul Nicholls ever since he said the words "Nelly Jack John" in the shit CBBC programme Earth Fasts. Its was absolute CACK, but I loved him oh yes I did. I even wrote to him when I was 16. What a nob. I sent him a picture of me in Black Gang Chine in the Isle of Wight with massive permed hair sat next to a plastic goblin. I remember trying to be all funny and saying in my letter "The goblin meant nothing Paul honest!" WHAT A DICK. I can't believe I've put this in my blog - god maybe I am a bit hungover. I genuinely thought he should have been mine. I remember when I got the generic FAN letter back, ya know the printed letters where they BIRO in your name were it says DEAR Leanne PAUL REALLY ENJOYED READING YOUR LETTER. etc
That day in my diary I wrote "I can't believe it, Paul Nicholls read my letter!". I wasn't very advanced for my age.
Years later (in 2005) I was in Great Marlborough Street doing some filming for my BBC documentary "How to get lucky with Leanne" and Paul Nicholls went striding past me. I was in the middle of a bit to Camera and I stopped in my tracks and said to the producer "Thats the man I should have been with...." Ironic really that he should walk past me as I was doing a documentary about being a desperate loser.
Gosh I'm being a bit down on myself aren't I. Don't worry, I know I'm great really - its not my fault that Paul never realised it.
So its more drinking tonight for Jeremy from work's leaving drinks. I love him, he makes funny noises. Must try to ease up on the old sauce next week cause my poor liver is all sad.
Right gonna go and trough on some food now. Bye!
