Mildly Diverting Fluff

Not much has been happening personally, I guess I should go out more and fill this digital space with exciting and sexy tales but pffffffft and all that. Though i'm a little busy and the weekend the thought of dingy bars, grotty loo's and trying to get a taxi home against the home comforts of a nice settee, not encountering a charming drunk and the hope of a half decent film on TV or failing that some mildly diverting fluff.

Not falling into the even mildly diverting fluff category is the latest series of Big Brother  There has been many "trans" contestants over the years, including a winner and possibly one who shouldn't have been put into such a show, though Luke is the first f2m I can recall. For all the criticisms the dumb glamour wannabes and brain-dead geezers with anger management issues, female, LGBT and non white contestants have performed better compared to other reality shows.

The honours list came out last weekend bringing the usual crew of party cronies, celebs and those patronisingly dubbed "ordinary people". I could criticise it but then again, its harmless if rather gaudy bling and an interesting day out. Included on the list was April Ashley for her transgender work and a life unwittingly or otherwise helping to fill tabloid newspapers for several decades.
