My correction is no longer needed!

Hello again, to all my readers (even though I only have 5 followers - 2 of which are me - my Twitter account and my Google account) ! This blog post is completely edited from my last one 'Correction time for me...' because in my blog, I called 'The Good Life is going to be GOOD!', I made a HUGE mistake, saying that the show's called 'Sue and Giles Live The Good Life' when infact it's called 'Giles and Sue Live The Good Life'.

I don't like to make mistakes, but it's already been made, and I can't change that. But, I can change the mistake in a written sort of way, as you can tell if you have read my blog about Giles and Sue's new show, and noticed the title of the show has changed - well, it HASN'T, it's just that I got the title wrong, for whatever reason (maybe I just typed that blog post really fast, and so I didn't notice my mistake, OR I just didn't know the exact title at the time) .

Anyway, it's all corrected now. And so I can relax, safe in the knowlegde that I've got a blog post that is accurate, and corrected, and NOT to be criticised by anyone - well people that notice these things that is.

And yes, it's a little off topic from what I usually write about (Sue and Giles) , but I just wanted to clear up the whole mistake, before I blog about them again.

P.S. This edited version of my blog from Sunday, has just been written on Monday evening, at 23:15.

Thanks for reading, bye for now, Ss1!

My photos from Giles and Sue Live The Good Life (trailer) ...

Hello (yet again) readers. I'm back again tonight (or today, if you're reading this later on into Sunday) to show you some pictures from the new trailer of Giles and Sue Live The Good Life!

Just above is a photo I took from the trailer, showing Giles mowing the lawn, possibly as Tom Good, as his clothes don't look too posh in that clip of him.

Above we can see Sue is milking their goat Geraldine, and she seems to be doing a pretty good job of it too. Although, in the clip we see Giles get squirted in the eye by Geraldine, when Sue pulls down on the goat's teat (probably in the wrong direction) .

Here, in this picture, Sue is holding an axe (I'm not sure why, but maybe she's about to/has just chopped up some wood, possibly for the range in their kitchen) . She looks quite pleased with herself, and I must say that the blondie/brown wig really suits her, don't you think?

And here, Giles is DEFINATELY dressed up as Tom, looking into his and Barbara's house. (Which of course, is REALLY Sue.)

And, just for the fun of it, they have thrown in the old logo from the original series of the sitcom 'The Good Life', and also used the old music from the show, which, for anyone who lived in the 70s, and (possibly) saw the sitcom, it will take them back in time - in their minds, and so they will be able to picture Sue and Giles as Barbara and Tom much more easily.

Overall, I think it's a pretty good trailer, and it did get me all excited about seeing the new series. Also some funny lines were added, both from Giles and Sue. I really look forward to watching it now, and I hope you're just as excited as I am. Comment below if you have any questions etc.

Thanks for reading, Ss1!

The Good Life is going to be GOOD!

Hello again readers! It's me... Supersizer1, with the latest news on Sue and Giles.

Today, I went to buy The Times newspaper from one of my local shops, and went to a local cafe, where I read an interesting and funny article about Sue and Giles' new show 'Giles and Sue Live The Good Life'. This was in a pullout about 'austerity' in the middle of the paper. And on the front cover, Sue and Giles are dressed up as Tom and Barbara Good, from the 70s sitcom The Good Life.

Inside the pullout was a two page article guiding people on how to live like Tom and Barbara, as well as quotes from Sue and Giles, and photos of them filming their new show. On the left they are dressed as Tom and Barbara, and on the right they're dressed as Margo and Jerry (which I stress, is the funniest picture I've seen of them in ages) . Also, below the photo of them as Tom & Barb. is a photo of Sue and Giles' chicken coup. Which, as I remember from their tweets in May, whilst they were still filming the show, Giles posted a photo on Twitpic of the chicken coup, and said Sue painted it. It's a sort of mix between pink and purple. Infact, it looks like a professional painted it (who knows, maybe Sue is a painter, and she just never told anyone) .

On the bottom right of the two page pullout, there's a picture of Sue and Giles with their goat Geraldine, and Sue is standing on the right, milking it, while Giles is on the left, sitting down, starring at the goat's udder/teats, and by the look on his face, he seems a bit horrified by Sue milking Geraldine. Also, just above this photo it describes 'How to milk a goat'. And all of the tips on how to live 'a life of austerity' have a heading, which are brightly highlighted in different colours, such as deep pink, green, purple and blue.

All in all, it's a very good article, and based on the photos of Sue and Giles filming their new show, it looks as though it's going to be a good one. Let's hope it lives up to 'The Supersizers Eat' and 'Go' series.

Let me know what you think, just comment below, and if you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them.

Bye for now, Ss1!

The night I met Giles Coren!

Hello readers! What an exciting week I've had! On Wednesday, the 20th of October, I met Giles Coren! Yes, the same Giles Coren from 'The Supersizers Eat' and 'Go'!

He was very down to earth, and spoke exactly the same as on television. And I even got a photo of him - which I took...

There he is above, smiling at me and his left hand is behind his back. I'm not sure why, but maybe he was holding something (I don't know) .

Anyway, I met him in a book shop - as you can tell from the photo. It was a Waterstones, in North London. He was doing a book signing, and a Q + A with Alison Rudd. And I got in at the last minute, with the VERY last ticket.

As I entered the book shop, it was very empty, and then I saw the stairs, which were red, and on the bottom step stood a freestanding notice saying 'Meet Giles Coren' with a photo of him in the middle of it.

As I wondered upstairs, I thought it sounded a bit too quiet. Then, all of a sudden, I heard a few people laughing. Then, as I got closer, I saw Giles sitting at a table, with Alison on the right, and him on the left.

I got given a seat right at the back, so when Giles was speaking, I could only occationally see his hands pop out from either side of people's heads. And also if I stretched my neck, I could see the top of his head.

Anyway, the jist of it was that him and Alison would talk to each other, but mainly him, and other people would ask him questions whenever they wanted to - even though, not many people did. Then, towards the end, Alison got people to put up their hands (as if they were at Primary School) and ask questions to Giles.

I decided not to, as I wanted to hear what other people would ask him. And some questions were rather funny. For example, one woman asked Giles about something he said in his book about Vegetarians. And he didn't even remember what he'd written - which is understandable, as he writes two new columns every week in The Times.

After people had asked him questions, he got up, quite causually, and wondered around the area where he'd be signing books. He eventually sat down, at a little table, with a red and white cloth on it, and began to sign books. And only about half of the people went over to him, to get their copy signed. Which, in my opinion, must mean that those people weren't really that keen on buying his book - just wanted to see him in the flesh.

But, of course, I did go there to see him in the flesh, but I'd already bought the book a few months ago. And some people didn't even have the book already, they paid after hearing him talk.

I waited until everyone had seen him before talking to him, as I wanted to be the last, purely because I would have a good chance of talking to him for quite a while - which I did. He was very nice, and signed my copy. And also some other bits I'd brought along. I also gave him some artwork I'd done for him and Sue, which he seemed very pleased with.

All in all, it was a great night out, and I urge you to go along to a book signing some time. Not just his, but other writers as well. I think that must of been my first proper one, and I LOVED IT! They are definately the way forward, I swear.

Thanks for reading this blog, and I hope to read your comments on it.

The Supersizers Eat... The French Revolution!

Hello everyone! And welcome back to 'Supersizer1's blog'!

Today, as you can see above, I'm going to be talking about today's repeated episode of 'The Supersizers Eat... The French Revolution'. And just above, is a picture of Sue and Giles at their dining table, dressed as King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. Throughout most of the episode, they are living the life of these historical figures, whilst mainly focusing on the food of the 1780s.

Sue Perkins is dressed up to look like Marie Antoinette, even at Marie's bath time - although, I've chosen not to display that image, as it didn't look very good, and also doesn't make Sue look that good either. So instead, I've used the image from when Sue and Giles go to experiment with electricity, and Sue is forced to have negative ions passed through her. While Giles messes around below her, and to use a quote from Sue, Giles is getting his "anus into..." her "...force field." - which, for me, is the BEST quote from the whole episode, and possibly, the BEST scene too.

Above, is another image from the show, showing Sue applying her make-up for the meal where her and Giles get dressed up, yet again, and Sue's wig gets decorated with her own black rimmed glasses, and other bits and bobs, to define Sue. She also drinks a black drink, which supposedly helped the King and Marie in the bedroom, to consummate their marriage. The woman standing next to Sue, also said that she - meaning Sue, looked like a clown. But, in my opinion, the bright pink cheeks rather suited her, don't you think so?

And this photo is, in my opinion, the funniest from the episode, as it shows Giles being made-up by Sue. And also is pretty funny, because Giles doesn't really like wearing make-up, I gathered, and so, to see him smiling is quite nice - plus, it does ACTUALLY suit him.

This next picture shows Sue's dislike of the black drink, which I spoke about previously. Also, it shows what kind of make-up Marie Antoinette used to wear.

And, this final picture shows Sue and Giles as revolutionaries, after the death of Marie Antoinette - who got beheaded a while back in the episode, although, that bit wasn't shown; they just showed Sue dressed as Marie, in her prison cell, with only a simple soup, with added noodles (I think), to give her extra strength to face the guillotine.

And, all in all, this was a VERY good episode, with lots of historical information thrown in. But, it also had a pretty big comic element thrown in, with the help of Sue and Giles - which for me, makes the show stand out above other historical documenteries. I also like how they don't take it too seriously, but instead make light of the horrible and tragic events of the past; like the execution of Marie and King Louis XVI.

Thank you for reading this blog post, and I hope to read some of your comments on it. Bye for now, Ss1!

I want to make my mark...

This is my most recent blog post. I haven't done one in a few days - been busy, tweeting and getting on with life.

I know the title seems a little vague, so I'll explain it to you...

Since I was very young, I've wanted to make my mark on society, in any way possible. I've also wanted to go into acting at a very young age. But recently, I've felt happiest when I sing. Music is an important part of life to me. Infact, I'm listening to some at the moment...

#Let the sun shine...# - Such a good song!

I love it! It's so uplifting, and makes you feel positive, even if you are down.

I really enjoy singing, and have done for years. It's one of those things that just comes naturally to me. Which reminds me of the song Naturally by Selena Gomez.

I can sing anywhere in my house, and as loud as I like. I don't seem to care. I just really get into it.

And anyway, the point I'm trying to make is that I want to be known for something I feel strongly about, or just purely have a passion, or love for. Which is certainly true in the case of Mel and Sue. Who I have watched on television for years - ever since Light Lunch. And haven't stopped. I even saw their latest programme - The Great British Bake Off! Such a GOOD show... I miss it now it's over though.

But, luckily, they are repeating it on BBC 1. It was on last night infact. I thought it was even better the second time around, because you now know all the contestants really well, and so you look into the show in much more detail than the first time.

I even set up a Twitition on Twitter for Mel and Sue's jokes - because they got cut out. And I felt VERY strongly about that. It was totally unfair, and so I just had to do something. I've so far got just over 40 signatures, which is good, but I could do with more. If you want to sign it, then just ask me to send you the link via Twitter. I'd love it to get at least 50 signatures. As I want to send it off to the BBC to complain about the cutting of their jokes.

Thanks for reading this blog, I know it was a bit long, but I had to get my point across.

Come back soon! Ss1!

What a Friday!

Friday was rainy, dark, boring, depressing, and just sad.

No-one likes to be chucked off a bus, and have to walk somewhere, just to be late! I certainly don't! The bus driver wouldn't let me on yesterday, and I got thrown off - pretty much. I wasn't happy, and had to walk to where I was going, in the rain.

Also didn't have much time to tweet - which I enjoy doing.

So... it was pretty bad. But, today's Saturday, and I can relax.

Chill out today guys. Love of blogging love, Ss1!
