HI-DIDDLY-DEE

Overheard at the theatre...

Child (to Father): When I grown-up, can I be an actor?

Father:
No, son, you can't be both...

This reminds me of the dialogue from 'Broken Sword'-

"You can't touch me, i'm innocent. I'm an American"

"Ahh, can't make up your mind hey"

Another actor joke. 3 men waiting at the Pearly Gates. St Peter says to 1st man "How much did you earn a year?" "£200,000" "Go over there with the lawyers" Question is asked to the 2nd man. "£150,000" "You go over there and join the accountants. In response to the question, the 3rd man says £10,000, to which St Peter asks, "Have I seen you in anything?"

I like this kind of stories, it sounds like modern epigrams... and I love too that wonderfoul and mad world of acting...

(Brian, someday, when my "fine english" would not take me a half an hour to make a understandable phrase, I will talk to you about C.S Lewis and your not translated to spanish book, Shadowlands. I`ll try to ask for a copy to the principal library of my country land, and I´ll tell you what happen with this business...)

Meantime, I will continue to enjoy your blog, especially in my next holydays (a blessing week...)...

I spy a Broken Sword fan! Whatever happened to Broken Sword? I loved it but it's not out for Mac! :(

Rob and I used to play the game together when we had only one pc between us and we just loved it for the script more than the annoying clues....

Ignorance showing here, but what is (or was) Broken Sword??
