Britney's Dad : The Truth?

The showbiz bitchy blogs are full of Britney rubbernecking. It's all obviously a bit sad and hopefully the turning point for the poor love.

However, looking at this picture of her dad arriving at the hospital to see her from Popsugar..

Isn't that Paul Heaton?

Here come the Resolutions!

1. Get fitter - I put on 8 pounds over Christmas. Even for me that's some going. Plus, I've been invited up to Loch Ness later in the year to do a charity event for my cousin and I don't want to keel over while doing it. Off to the gym after work. No, honestly! Stop looking at me like that!

2. Money! - this year is already pretty much devoted to sorting my dire finances out. Once I've moved over (hopefully within the next two weeks) it should be a little easier!

3. Just do it! - Carried over from last year because it seemed to work when I remembered to do it. No over-thinking, if it feels right, do it!

4. Try not to get pregnant! - There's got to be one I can definately keep!

Ken Dodd...

...seems to be on the mend..and thank God. I was starting to feel guilty about what I wrote yesterday!

European Capital Of Culture : Dey Are Doe Aren't De Doe!



There's every chance this hasn't embedded properly, so try http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=nqPzSo5rpkU&feature=related

Not the most ideal time for a stalwart of Merseyside Culture to fall ill. Days after the BBC made a big fuss of him with a night of shows Ken Dodd has been admitted into hospital. I hope he makes a recovery. Primarily because he's funny and one of the last real showmen but also because I can't be doing with another mawkish display of grieving from our Scouse brethren. I don't want to start the New Year off with professional Scousers (who all live in London, funny that) demanding a public holiday.

If the worst does happen, I wonder if they'll have Diddymen carrying his coffin?
