[The Life of Shaun #121] Madge redux

Here's an article about Madge from yesterday's Evening Standard (Natasha buys it, not me!):

Madge chaos in Exmouth Market [my shopping street!]

CHAOS IN Exmouth Market last night as filming continues on Madonna's pet film project, Filth and Wisdom.   She's directing it - not acting in it.

"There were all the crew, people taking photographs and autograph hunters," says my passer-by.

"And there was also a pretty angry bunch of locals because the filming stopped them from getting into Renton's Chemists [my chemist!] to get their prescriptions."

By change another famous blond, Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry, happened upon the circus, as he came to have dinner in the Exmouth Market branch of Strada with his wife and daughter.

"No-one was paying any attention to him," I'm told.  "He looked a bit miffed."

Guy Ritchie must know how he feels.

Sidenote, I love their commendable use of hyphenated multi-part adjectives!

I had a chat with Saffron this morning and was introduced to her & Fiona's new puppy, Max.  Adorable!  Ah, the glamorous life of a dirt-poor student in EC1...  ;-)
