When I was at school, I used to write a Fanzine and had it photocopied on the school computer. Not that I sold many copies of it. I used it basically as an excuse to try and meet bands that I liked, under the pretence of being a reporter. Incredibly, it worked a few times. Biggest name was Morrisey who, though he arrived late at the concert venue and didn’t have time to do interview, did accept my gift of daffodils for his backpocket. Ahh, those were the days! 🙂
When I started working, I liked to make up fake copies of newspapers for friends who were leaving. At the EC Court of Justice I used to make up fake judgments for the same purpose and, if I was really lucky, managed to get someone from the Registry to put on the official court stamp. (Probably get fined for doing that these days.)
Fast forward to 2009. Stay at home mum. Got that itchy feeling again and – due the the wonders of technology – I can even have my own blog. Not sure where the blog is going right now, but will certainly include food, music, Thoroughly Modern Millie and the Flylady.
Welcome to my world.
