"He Used To Be A Lovely Boy" - Keane, 2006

I've been a little delinquent since returning from Singapore, and I haven't kept up with my posts here on Lord Celery.

I can only think of one observation worth blogging about from this past week. And that's something we heard in the middle of the night, when John and I weren't sleeping very well.

One good thing about sleeplessness in England is that there's usually American programming to watch in the wee hours of the morning. One night last week, we were treated to an NBA game between .... ha ha ha .... I can't even remember which two teams we were watching! Oh dear...must have been the jetlag.

When you watch American sports on the UK's Channel 5, you get a couple of UK-based commentators sitting in a studio which is, presumably, somewhere in London. Sometimes one is American and sometimes not. In the case of 5's NBA coverage, the studio guys are both British. And the other night, one of the commentators said something which would certainly not be heard on a US broadcast of an NBA game.

When TNT's camera panned across the faces of some of those sitting courtside, lo and behold there was Shaquille O'Neal. He was dressed to kill, as you can imagine. And upon seeing him, one of the British studio commentators said, "There he is...Shaq.....all pimped up and lovely."


Dorothy, we sure aren't in Kansas anymore.
