Supping Soup with Bashful  
Dougs had expressed a soft spot (or perhaps hard spot) for Helena Bonham Carter. I recently purchased "Rik Mayall Presents", a series of one-off plays starring him in a variety of roles. One of them (which appears to be a prototype for the film "Staggered") features Ms Bonham Carter as the stripper at a stag party; she does a routine which ends up with her leaving the stage topless in fishnet stockings. Dougs seemed quite taken with the image in a misty-eyed sort of way.

Last night I showed him the sequence. We were eating a noodley soup, which seemed to require a considerable amount of his attention, and as Ms Bonham Carter skipped off the table she had been dancing along he said: "Oh dear, I don't think those shoes will have done the finish on that table much good."

People don't appreciate how difficult it is to maintain a good finish on polished wood.

Mmmm, noodles Helena Bonham Carter...
