See you in a few days
I'll will probably be offline most of this week as we start shooting Cinema Of Horror today. Hence the larger than usual number of posts this week.
My tasks today include supervising the final run-through of the Bollywood number today in Bradford, then back to Harrogate to the Valley Gardens for one of the Zombie scenes (half brick in car for clubbing scene - check!)
See you all soon!
And I leave you with a final titbit to make you chuckle.
Dustin the Turkey has been chosen by the public to represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest semi-final in Belgrade in May.
He won Eurosong 2008 from the University Concert Hall in Limerick with his song 'Irelande Douze Pointe'.
He saw off the challenge of other finalists Donal Skehan, Maya, Leona Daly, Liam Geddes and Marc Roberts.
Dustin the Turkey will now compete in the first Eurovision semi-final on Tuesday 20 May.
The final takes place on Saturday 24 May.
Bookies William Hill have installed Dustin the Turkey as the 10-1 favourite to win Eurovision.
The company's spokesman, Tony Kenny, said: "These days you have to be either from the old Eastern Bloc or have a great gimmick to win Eurovision - and a singing turkey will possibly be one of the most bizarre things that a Eurovision audience will ever see."
"He'll go to Belgrade on a wing and a prayer and, fingers crossed, he'll ruffle a few feathers when he gets there," he added.
