Hurray hurray!

Posted: July 10th, 2002, by Marceline Smith

The Morning News have remembered how to be funny and witty and silly. I mean I really liked the new articles stuff and all the contributors but I missed the personal edge and the little anecdotes of what stupid stuff they’d been up to. It was like diskant without ME. And, ahem, who could imagine that? So hurray hurray, as I already said, for Letters From The Editors, Rosecrans and Andrew, both of which made me laugh out loud. I am officially jealous of the illustrations idea as well.

That’s the only hurray hurray news for today I’m afraid. The rest of my time is being spent riding the giddy rollercoaster of emotion all the way through frustration, depression, doom, gloom and the painful sparks of dashed hope. Otherwise known as trying to get your email via a proxy server. If anyone would like to come round and kill me then feel free. Or help me, that might even be better. That’s also a roundabout way of saying, ‘yes I am ignoring all your emails but not deliberately’.

Based in Scotland, her lexicon consists of words such as 'jings', 'aboot' and 'aye': our trained voice analysts are yet to decipher some of the relentless stream of genius uttered on a twenty-four hour basis. Marceline's hobbies include working too much and going out in bad weather.
