Father Simon

.
They say life begins at forty, so in seven months' time I should become alive and invigorated, right?
.
But judging by the current state of affairs, my memory is suffering from a slow, drawn-out death.
.
Take this morning for example.
.
For some reason, this guy popped into my head:
.
.

.
Don't ask me why.
.
Maybe it's because I have a slight fixation with his un-naturally white veneer teeth I watched "Britain's Got More Talent Most Talented" yesterday.

.
And here's the thing.
.
I couldn't for the life of me remember his surname.
.
Simon .... Simon .... Simon .... Simon .... Simon .... CALLOW !
.
..

.No, he's a famous Shakesperean actor.

.
.
Simon .... Simon .... Simon .... Simon .... Simon .... BATES !

.

.No, he's a radio dj on Classic FM, formerly famous in the Eighties.

.
.
Simon .... Simon .... Simon .... Simon .... Simon .... SHEPHERD !
.
.
..
No, he's a tv actor, again, famous in the Eighties.
.
.
Simon .... Simon .... Simon .... Simon .... Simon .... COWELL !
.
.
And then that made me think of one of these.

.

A religous cowl.
.
.
And that means the next time I forget his surname, I shall probably think;
.
.
Simon .... Simon .... Simon .... Simon .... Simon .... MONK !
.
.

Ruth said...

Oh the teeth, the ridiculous teeth and the non-existent lips, and the square lego hair-cut and extreme chest rug... such a charmer.

(I love your blog so much by the way... how funny to see a comment from you on mine... hope it wasn't too freaky if you saw your name in my sidebar! I found you through pamperingbeki!)

I'm quite glad I'm not the only one who has a train of thought that ambles around in crazy loops like that. :) This post made me giggle.
