Blogging around the Christmas tree
Hello and Happy Christmas!
I hope you’re all having a wonderful day. I definitely am, but I had the strangest dream last night. I was visited by three strange apparitions during the night, each warning me to change my ways or suffer terrible consequences.
First to visit was the Ghost of Christmas Past, although he looked strangely familiar.
“Ann” he said. “A-annn.” “What?” “Hey hey! I’m here to tell you that you’ve been really ignorant of games in the past and you shouldn’t be ignorant of games anymore. Ok?” “Mmm, ok.” ” And also, Cheggers Party Quiz is still great fun for all the family!” “Good.”
And then he disappeared. Very odd, but not the first time Cheggers has visited me in the night.
THEN the Ghost of Christmas Present rocks up. Although this time I’m pretty sure it’s just Keisha from the Sugababes to tell me I’ve made it into the band.
“Ann, hi. Can’t be long. I only do this ghosting once a year and I thought I’d sort out some girlband business while I’m at it.” “Ok, are you here to tell me…” “Yeah. First up, you need to wise up about games. Does that make sense?” “Umm, yeah.” “Good, that’s all I’ve got on the ghost list to tell you and I don’t really get it. The other thing is that you’re not in the Sugababes.” “Oh, right.” “Yeah, sorry. But that guy you were with, he was great. I’m over girls. I think he’s the way to go.” “Really?” “Totally. And if you see Heidi, don’t tell her I said that. The revolving door is about to revolve on her and she doesn’t know yet.” “Ok, bye then.”
And she was gone before I had a chance to tell her I carried Ste in our audition, but I guess that’s something she’ll have to find out on her own.
Then in comes The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, mascara running down her face and looking furious (fury not pictured below).
“Are you Ann?” “I might be.” “Two things. First, you’re never going to be the new Sugababe. They’ll never replace me. D’you get that? I am the Sugababes.” “Ok. I’m not the new Sugababe. Can you stop pulling my hair now?” “So who is? I swear, I’ll kill ‘em!” “I heard something about a boy, but what do I know?” “A boy? That’s stupid. But if it is, I’ll still kill ‘em.” “…” “What else did I have to tell you? Something about games and playing games. You either should or you shouldn’t.” “What happens if I don’t?” “Ste and Simon will be really mad.” “Shit.”
And that’s how Heidi from the Sugababes killed Ste and I decided I should probably try to play games a bit.
All in all, a good night.
See you in the New Year!
