Last Saturday morning, we were lucky enough to be part of the Community Chest Fund event with the jurade of Saint Emillion which started off with mass at St John’s Co-Cathedral with Joseph Calleja singing. We cut short a trip to London to be present, and though amazing to be part of it, I was more than miffed to have the service ruined by 3 individuals (all of whom you would expect to know how to behave) videoing the tenor singing with their iPhones, arms stretched out like a Nazi salute, DURING the mass. Lucky for me to be in the right place to ask for forgiveness for my thoughts about them. They cemented my desire to start on my next business venture though – a school for etiquette – and I shall be contacting them directly to graciously invite them to book their places.
Last night saw the 17th edition of LOL’s Stand Up at the Dolmen Resort in Qawra. We left it to our friends to pick a table which, when we saw where they had picked, thought it was dangerously close to the stage. It took the compare about 5 minutes to start on Nigel, which started the laughter off.
The first act wasn’t my cup of tea, but he was on the same wavelength as one half of the room and did have some funnies up his sleeve. The second act, Junior Simpson, was hilarious. He picked on Nigel’s wife, Jan, and the joke carried on through his act and after the show….. As is normal with these events, you think you will remember the jokes, but they seem to dissolve by the time you reach the car.
