Spin, baby, spin!

Thursday 22 Jul 10

I started back on The Good Wife yesterday.  It was lovely to see everyone and catch up. It was a bit like going back to school after the summer holidays, except of course the summer is well and truly still with us.  I write this in my underpants. 

I had a sentence to say that was so convoluted, long and tongue twisty, but I managed it.  And today I have a day off. I like this acting in a TV  show lark.

Did I mention I took my first spin class the other day and thought I was going to die?  I have never sweated so much, and despite the fact that it is not a difficult concept intellectually, I couldn't get the hang of which way you are supposed to turn the little knob and so as a consequence I think I may have exhausted myself too early, and sat down a few times even when the teacher was screaming for us to stand up.  Talking of which, why doesn't she use a microphone? There is very loud music playing and she will have very damaged vocal folds if she doesn't watch out.  And also, hello, I can't hear you, even though you're shouting!  There is another one tonight and my friend Darren told me the teacher is the bomb so I think I might go.  Imagine if I became a spin addict!

Herer are two videos I found. The first is me on Jimmy Fallon's show launching itsasickness.com, and the next one is a weird painting with light video commercial thing I did ages ago for Turner Classic Movies, talking about one of my favourite films, North by Northwest. Enjoy!
