I was watching re-runs of an old Friends series this morning when it hit me that Janice and Amy Winehouse are one and the same person. Oh. My. God!
Janice/Amy: They tried to make me go to rehab. I said no no no.
Janice/Amy: Where's my sweet Bing-a-ling? I said no no no.
It's Mother's Day en Italie oggi, plus in America, NZ and probably elsewhere too. We Brits celebrated it in March, I wonder why we celebrate it on a different day.
Yesterday, I said to the OH "What can we get for your mum for Mother's Day?" She is a good cook and enjoys cooking so I said (answering my own question) "what about something kitcheny like a nice serving dish?"
OH: "Yes, something for the kitchen, what about one of those things we've got where you put the lettuce in and spin it around"
Me: "A salad spinner you mean?"
OH: "Yes, one of those"
Me: "You want to give her a salad spinner for Mother's Day?!"
Is it just me, or do you agree that you can't give a salad spinner as a gift? I suppose it makes a change from the usual chocs and flowers. What we decided to get in the end was still a practical gift, a new mobile phone.
I just heard that Ilary Blasi (as in Totti's wife) gave birth early this morning. On Mother's Day - good timing Ilary. It's a girl.
