So, yes, still alive. I have all sorts of bits and pieces that should have been their own posts, but I've been too lazy busy.

1. Dancing
Still the most important thing in my life at present. The really nice part is that Dad now agrees with me on this. He has even had a few lessons and finds that it's better than he thought it would be. However in early June I passed my Bronze III exam. This brings me ever closer to the public performance that I suspect will constitute my Full Bronze exam, but that's not until the end of the year or early next year.

2. Thesis
So I've had a 'nice' breakdown about this in my supervisor's office last Wednesday. There were a whole lot of things I had to say, mostly along the lines of 'I'm not getting this at all' and they were finally said on that day. I am now getting more support and am very pleased to have it!

3. Wicked
I went to see this several weeks ago and, needless to state, absolutely loved it! Amazing sets, sensational costumes, full cast (which is very fortunate as many of the matinees seem to have alternates or substitutes) and a wonderful overall experience. I was even impressed with Rob Guest, which is unusual for me, and I was surprised how much I liked Rob Mills and Anthony Callea, as the whole Australian Idol thing prejudiced me against them at first.

4. 'Allo 'Allo
I have been buying the DVDs as they came out and picked up the Season 8 pack today. I am delighted that they are finally putting some extras in:
* the 1991 Christmas special
* Comedy Connections 'Allo 'Allo
* Tracking the careers of the 'Allo 'Allo cast since th end of the series
* Cast bios
Maybe not the most exciting things, but a heck of a lot better than any of the others.

That's all I can think of for the moment. Others things as they spring to mind...

You might remember that, some time ago, I mentioned that I met three of the stars of 'Allo 'Allo. Several people demanded photos (presumably you thought I was lying ;-), but as they were on a normal camera, I couldn't oblige. However now that I have had the film processed, I can show you the photographic evidence!

Gorden Kaye
Gorden signing an autograph for a young girl, of whom he asked "Did you enjoy the show? Yes? Did you understand it?"
Guy Siner
Sue Hodge
Gorden and Me
And fitting with the theme of the play even the key to my room was bent...

Ever since Heidi left (and in fact before she came) on Sunday, I have been watching 'Allo 'Allo. I have series 1-5 on DVD and the rest on videos of varying and somewhat dubious quality. Yesterday after work I drove to Monbulk just to purchase a copy of Rene & Me by Gorden Kaye. I have also just hunted out my 'Allo 'Allo war diaries.

There is, of course, a perfectly simple explanation. Listen very carefully. I shall say this only once.

I am going to Brisbane on Sunday for the single reason of seeing the stage show of 'Allo 'Allo starring *drumroll* Gorden Kaye (Rene), Guy Siner (Lt Gruber) and Sue Hodge (Mimi). It also has Chloe Dallimore, who played Ulla in The Producers in its recent Australia tour. I presume she will be playing Helga, although the website I have linked to above does not include Helga in the list of characters. I can't believe she won't be in it though.

Can someone who has seen the show on stage tell me about it?

In case anyone else is slow, like me, and hadn't realised, season five of 'Allo 'Allo has been released by the BBC. (The Americans have five and six, but not in the lovely photographic box sets.)
