“Engaging” **** Scotsman
Ta very much for popping into my rather humble web abode. Brew?
If my website was a house it would probably be rented in a slightly run down but affordable area. There would be damp hidden by a Billy Bookcase, charity shop lamps, a disgruntled pet and cleaning products from poundland. But my biscuits and condiments would be from Marks and Spencers. Basically my website is the equivalent of a Media graduate’s first step onto the property ladder. It’s not terribly fancy but it does the job.
A decade ago, when I was a kohl smeared A-level performing arts student I predicted my future. In it were Oscar nominations, Broadway musicals and a bohemian summer in Paris where I’d write a pulitzer prize winning novel whilst engaging in a torrid affair with a bloke named Jaques.
I did not predict a future where I would need to know how to use a spreadsheet. Where the closest Jaques I’d get my mitts on was a bottle of pink cider. So if I could go back in time I would probably tell the 17 year old me to stop wagging her IT support lessons. That believe it or not, basic computer skills and not tap-dancing are the tools she would need for her future career. But she’d probably just smirk, quote some Manchester based Indie band and slump away to smoke behind the Geography Portacabins.
So sod her, if I’m going back in time I’m going to fight dinosaurs with a Frenchman called Jaques.
Anyway you are very welcome indeed to wander with me in this two up two down that Adobe Photoshop forgot.
It’s pretty much a place where I’ll updates gigs I’m doing, introduce you to the things and people that I think are funny and hopefully you may find some funny too. Kettle’s boiled!
So c’mon in to the brain dribbles of one Katie Mary Mulgrew. But do be a dear and wipe your feet before you come in? I don’t want to get muddy footprints all over the HTML lino.
