26th September 1979

Is it me or is this old lady a bit worrying.... she looks like some one of f 'Muder She Wrote' and is phoning the lack lustre Police Chief to report a murder, that in fact she commited. but with out Mrs Fletcher whould have got away with it???

Wednesday 26
Wages £6.00
Bought a bra & book
'Alien' (must have been the book of the film)
Games cancelled

Went to Fi's

Sam phoned at 9.30

I phoned him at 11.00pm

He has got his correspondence course

He said I may not be able to go to his because of it (huh??)

My I hadn't realised Alien was out in 1979.
Can't recall if I saw it at the cinema on release or whether it was later on video... maybe my diaries will tell me.

But who can forget this scene. I remember when I did see it being really scared at this scene... it is soooo funny now :-)

Well it is Friday and FMB have offered up 'The Friday Five'... it would be cheeky not to take part..... so here goes ..

1. What is the first TV program you remember watching?

Well it has to be 'Watch with Mother' and in black and white too
(gawd I am that old).
Not sure though whether it was The Wooden Tops (loved Spot the dog, Andy Pandy,or Bill & Ben . it was soooo long ago but didn't they talk ever so 'posh' back then?

2. Is there a show on TV that you simply have to watch and even record it if not in?
Casualty. I have watched it since it first started and even my teen is hooked now. When she goes to her dads I am not allowed to watch it so I tape it and we watch it on her return. Even my mother tapes it for us too just in case I miss it.. I haven't the heart to tell her we can watch it on BBC iplayer.

3. Who was your first TV star crush (def: crush = infatuation)?

I immediately thought... Jan Micheal Vincent...
don't ask me why but he is in my head as a TV idol. My he is some what creepy here Obviously Donny was my first infatuation but he wasn't an actor

4. Dallas or Dynasty?

Dallas of course. I so loved how they would sit out side and eat when there was a fair old wind blowing. Dynasty had too big a shoulder pads for comfort!!

5. Do you watch adverts/commercials on TV or flick channels to skip them?

I don't really 'do' too much TV these days so the adverts are fascinating when I do watch. I giggle at them and go 'erm what was that about?' and my Teen says 'have you never seen that advert before it is soo ancient' lol

I don't do much tv either apart from a couple of great aussie shows and dexter. do you get dexter in england?

Daddy Papersurfer said...

That knitting pattern is Quentin Crisp isn't it? - the stately old homo .......

and yes Nursey, Dexter is showing here. I'm waiting for the boxed set to come down in price though - I love serial killer yarns [see - knitting pun - brilliant]

Annie Mouse said...

yes dexter is a great show. i was thinking it was looking like a man, the knitting pattern lady that is.

jan michael vincent, how sad, such a looker when he was younger, but now he can't even remember what he was like back then. the picture of him did you watch the interview that picture came from?

NM ~ from the coments from DaddyP and Annie I guess Dexter is over here then?? Perhaps I had better check it out... :-)

70steen said...

hee hee very funny DP... yes I am not sure if it is female either?

70steen said...

Hi Annie ~ yes the jury is certainly out on the knitty model..

No I didn't see the interview I amy go and take a look... but there again it maybe a bit too sad to watch.

I went to the knitting pattern shop today ... drat it was closed again, they are getting a new carpet fitted tsk!!
