My Friday - in words. (Also Giles Coren's birthday!)

Hello there! Welcome back to my blog, which is meant to be all about Sue and Giles, but as a change, I'll talk about me, because I just want to. (But I have already mentioned Giles in the title, so...)

So, tonight was very eventful. Oh yeah, I did lots of fun stuff. Went to a hospital, with someone I know, and met a pretty cute male doctor, who was Dutch, even though he comes from France - weird! Anyway, the thing is, me and the person I know has been bitten by stupid, buzzing, mozzies. Well, mosquitoes, but I can't spell it, without asking someone else. (Which is highly embarrassing, but, whatever.)

Also, as soon as I got home I unpacked everything, and took off my jacket and hoodie, which is called layering, oh yeah, I'm a layer-er, ha ha! Well, not always. And then I went and sat down in the living room, and watched Little Howard's Big Question, which I had recorded on Wednesday. I hate missing TV shows, especially that one, because it's just SO hilarious! (Just like Sue and Giles' stuff.) And it had a woman in it dressed up as Lady Gaga! Which made me "laugh out loud" or "lol" if you prefer that. (Which I do, because I'm COOL, well, cool-ish. LOL.)

Just reading that paragraph back - oh my god, I sound so weird, like I'm trying to be funny, but I wasn't. Hmm... am I funny? (Please answer this, if you follow me on Twitter - @Supersizer1 - that's my Twitter name.)

And I've got to say, Little Howard was amazing. The funniest episode yet! But, also the most complex, because at first I didn't have a clue what was going on. I mean, Lady Gaga was in Little Howard's bathroom - huh? And Big Howard wasn't Big Howard, it was a look-a-like. (So confusing!)
But, it was great. Once I'd understood the plot I was ok. It was such a good episode.

Also, in other NEWS... today (well yesterday now) it was Giles Coren's birthday, and Jonathan (from the Bake Off)! I wished him a happy birthday on Twitter, while I was at the hospital, and Jonathan too, and Jonathan replied saying 'Thanks' and I was chuffed!

What a great day!

Hope you enjoyed reading this post. Please comment below, or tweet me, and tell me what you thought. I'd be very grateful to get some feedback.

Thanks for reading. Ss1. x

My old blog is way better than my new one!!!

Hello again!

I'm blogging two days in a row! That's more like it! I guess I have realised that despite loving my new blog on Typepad, and I had fun using it for a while, nothing beats my old one, which has one clear purpose, to blog about Sue Perkins and Giles Coren as much as I can.

And I will keep it up! I don't want to blog about anything else. FACT. They are all I want to write about, because their shows are the best and they are the loveliest celebrities that I've ever met.

Sue Perkins has been an idol of mine for years... ever since the days of Light Lunch. Oh yeah, I've followed her stuff right from the start. And Mel Giedroyc, who has also done The Great British Bake Off with her, which is returning for a 2nd series in August (apparently), which I will definately be watching!!

And Giles Coren, who is a writer, restaurant critic, and TV presenter - for The Supersizers, Giles and Sue Live The Good Life etc, has been an idol of mine these past couple of years, ever since I saw The Supersizers Go... And what a great show that was!

Quite frankly, their stuff on TV is the best, funniest, and most interesting stuff I have ever seen, and being a young person I do watch quite a bit of TV, so I know, that in my opinion, their TV shows are the best.

I know, I'm being pretty one sided here, but how else should I be? I mean, someone on Twitter once called me the 'Giles and Sue superfan' which I entirely agree with. (Not bigging myself up or anything, ha ha!)

Thanks for reading. Hope I have proved to you, if you didn't know already, that I am Sue and Giles' superfan, and how this blog is way better than my other one.

Bye for now, Ss1. x

Giles Coren & Kitty in The Times Magazine.

Hello there! I know I haven't blogged for a while, but I haven't had the time, and I also haven't felt very inspired, until now...

Because, when I went and got The Times 5 days ago, on Saturday, and when I got around to reading it, (which I do try very hard to do, especially if I'm busy, but when I'm not, it's quite easy to get around to reading it) I found that Giles Coren was on the cover! And also a certain little lady was being held by him; it was Kitty (Giles' 5 month old daughter).

Take a look at the picture I took of the cover below:

Doesn't Kitty look cute?

It's just one of those things that you have to capture when it's new, and exciting - which it was to me.

Seeing Giles holding Kitty on the cover was a lovely sight to behold. He's a daddy! And by the sound of his article in The Times Magazine, he is a very good one! Some of the things he promised Kitty in it were very lovely. For example, he said 'I will never smack you.' which is a good thing. I mean, to be honest, I have been smacked by my parents when I was younger, only once, by both of them at different times, and I'm sure I'm not alone. I'd guess that most parents smack their children, at some stage in their childhood. I know it's wrong, and if I have children, then I wouldn't want to smack them. And Giles has the right kind of idea, not to be aggressive towards Kitty. If you are aggressive towards children, they will only end up hating you, and will want to leave home sooner than other children.

It was a very lovely article that Giles wrote. He wrote it on honeymoon, and it was him promising what he would do, when his unborn child was born, although he didn't know that she'd be born, or that it would be a girl, at that stage.

It was honestly the loveliest thing of his that I have ever read.

I am a great fan of his writing, especially his stuff in The Times, and I really enjoyed reading this article. If I am ever a mother, then I'd love to be just like what he wants to be as a dad. I don't want to be a nagging parent, or an aggressive parent, or a parent who goes out partying and drinking when they should be looking after their kids. Not that I'll be a parent anytime soon. I just want to be a good one, when the time comes.

Thanks for reading, and hope you liked the picture that I took and edited.

Books I like to read.

Hello! Here's a late night blog, if you read this as soon as I've posted it on Twitter.

Well, my 'What you can expect from me soon' blog post doesn't exactly follow in my recent blogs as I've had other things going on, and the things I wanted to blog about then, aren't as important to me now, as they were then. I wanted to go into depth about my two virtual cats, and that hasn't happened, and I wanted to tell you about the places I've eaten out at recently, and what I've ate, and that too hasn't happened. And, the only thing I managed to write about from that blog post, was going to London, and meeting Mark Watson, which is on my other, newer, and more jazzy-looking blog, on Typepad, which in previous posts I have put a link to.

In this blog post, however, I have decided, that because of more recent events, that I will blog about books that I like reading, because that's what I've spent quite a bit of my time doing recently.

I think I'd like to list them first, just so you know the ones that I like, or have liked to read.

1. Anger Management for Beginners. (By Giles Coren.)

2. Eleven. (By Mark Watson.)

3. From Here To Maternity. (By Mel Giedroyc.)

4. Going Gaga. (Also by Mel Giedroyc.)

5. Wuthering Heights. (By Emily Bronte.)

6. The Worst Witch. (By Jill Murphy. Which I had to look up just now, because it was so long ago since I read her books.)

7. The Magic Key. (By Roderick Hunt. Which I also just looked up, because that was also a long time ago since I read those stories.)

These are just a few of the books I've read in my life. I've got to say, I'm not the biggest reader, infact when I was at Primary School, I absolutely hated reading, and would throw a big tantrum with my mother when she tried to get me to read. I'd beg her to let me watch some more children's television, before I did my daily reading homework, but she would insist that I turned the television off, and sat with her to read.

But these days, I am much more fond of reading, especially Giles Coren's restaurant reviews and opinion columns in The Times newspaper. Also, as you may already know, I recently went to a book signing event at the Foyles bookstore in London, and met Mark Watson, and also ordered his book 'Eleven' from Amazon. And in the past week and a bit, I have been reading it off and on, and am really getting into it. For someone who used to hate reading, I think that's a pretty good thing, and I often feel a sense of achievement when I finish a paragraph or chapter in a book.

Also, Giles Coren's book, 'Anger Management for Beginners' is a very good read, and another book which I have not only been reading (for quite a long time, as I have been quite busy in the past few months, so haven't had much time for reading until now) but also I have been to the book event for that book as well, and met Giles Coren back in October last year, when he did a Q & A, and signing for that book.

I love going to book events. I would like to add that again, book events aren't a regular thing for me, just like I used to hate reading, you wouldn't of caught my child-self at a book event, but my grown-up self, oh yes, indeed! I am now a complete convert. I like going to them, but only if I happen to hear about one, in a paper, or on Twitter, I don't go hunting to find the next book event, and I wouldn't go to just any one of them either. I am only interested if the author is someone I've heard of, and is someone I like. Like Giles and Mark. There's no point going to any kind of event if you're not interested in what it is. Or, who is there.

I am so getting into writing too. Blogging is like writing for me. I feel as if I am getting my points across, and expressing myself, without getting all bitchy, or angry, and sounding like I'm just having a rant. I also am planning (and 'planning' is the important word) to write a book. Now, I have absolutely no idea of how to go about writing one, or how to get one published, but, I just had an idea for one, which some of my followers on Twitter know about. And if it happens, then great. But if it doesn't, then it's probably not meant to be. I get over failure pretty quickly, so it wouldn't bother me for very long if it didn't happen. And I have tried to get someone to help, but so far, nothing has come of it. I hope someone can help me, as I'd love to have my own book. And it would be very cool if I was actually the author at a book signing, signing my fans' books.

Anyway, as far as reality goes, nothing is happening so far. My story could do with a bit of a structure, as it's all just been thought of on the spot. But, I do hope something happens soon. I will probably keep you notified if anything does happen.

So, to conclude this rather long blog post (which is surprisingly long for me) I have grown to love books, over quite a long period of time, and have been to a few book events which I have really enjoyed, and now I'm inspired to write a book of my own. Wish me luck! (I'll probably need it.)

Bye for now, Ss1. x

My drawings of @sueperkins were thrown away by someone I know.

This, I'm afraid, is not going to be a very positive blog post. Warning: I may swear in it, so please don't take offence, as it's not directed at any of you, either people who just read my blog, or people who follow me on Twitter.

Today, I left the house, in order to collect my drawings of Sue Perkins from someone I know, who was looking after them for me, but has somehow managed to throw them away.

I went to find them, and they were in the toilet at the time, and when they came out, I said "Hey!" or "Hi!", I can't really remember. I then asked them whether they had the drawings, and they said, "No, I threw them away ages ago. I'm awfully sorry." and at the same time, was slightly smiling. Oh, YEAH, of course you're SORRY. (I don't think so.) Personally, I think that they never really liked my drawings, and so they threw them away because they were jealous, or just out of pure hatred, I really don't know.

I was absolutely fuming inside, but all I managed to say to them was, "That's alright.". But inside I was thinking, "How dare you, you bi***.".

As soon as I got home, I was on the phone to two different people that I know, and they both thought that it was totally wrong, what this person did.

I can't believe that they would just throw it away without asking me first. It's totally wrong. They know that I put my heart and soul into those drawings, and that I spent hours on them.

I just hope it's not too late to get them back. If it is, then I'm very sorry to Sue, who when I met her, she liked them, and I gave her copies of them. It's just a shame, that I may never get the original drawings back.

Thanks for reading.

Lots of love, Ss1. x

Supersizer1's old blog... continued.

Hello everyone! It's Supersizer1 here, obviously! Or, Ss1, if you prefer that.

Just wanted to update you on this blog. You see, I haven't been using this one much lately, basically because Sue and Giles aren't on the TV much at the mo. But, just to let you know, as soon as they return on to our TV screens, I will make an extra special effort to blog about it. Because, I love blogging, and Sue and Giles - duh!

Thanks for reading, and I hope to blog again here really soon.

Lots of love, Ss1. x
