Inspirational, Its a word i hear alot lately and find it so strange, I guess because so many people are in my position and do the same thing everyday, they live, they smile and we get on with it. I try to help spread a little bit of my thoughts on the world and encourage people to be organ donors and I hope that makes a difference, I think It is, I'm pretty sure it is. When I have people coming up to me and saying that I'm inspirational, I guess that means I have and that they have signed the organ donor register. To be honest I feel very humbled that its because of me.
Anyway me and Stu were brought dinner at the restaurant in the studio, Lush food and free booze I guess we couldn't ask for anything more. Half way through eating my venison, Russell Howard comes over to say hello! The main man him self, I didn't think we'd get to meet him quit yet as i was told he was in his down time for the show and imagined him meditating for some strange reason. We chatted briefly and he was pretty cool, we talked about when they aired my piece and apparently I have a lovely west country accent which i find quit strange as I thought when I listened to myself I sounded like a common London girl, I think I'm more happy with the lovely west country accent analogy from Russell. We discussed listening to yourself for the first time on T.V you know like us celebrity folk do ;-) lol.
We then went to watch the show which was hilariously brilliant and I really enjoyed it, the mystery guest was somewhat worrying and I have to say I'm glad he didn't stick around after the show, as he liked to make perfume out of his own POO. Yes POO. he was a strange man and his next scientific/artistic project, yep that's right apparently its all in the name of science and art, he making rings with the imprint of your anus ring on, 'so you can wear your ring' yep that's right totally crazed and demented rolled into one. Something you really have to watch the show for, I wonder what parts of that interview will actually be suitable for t.v at all. So after the show Me, Russ Stu and a few members of his team were discussing this insane man and the fact that Russell had shaken this man hand, we then got on to pondering what this man does in his spare time and we concluded with poopcicals. That is all I'm going to say really. The night was truly amazing, full of hysterics and strange conversations, something that is quite common with me anyway. Russ invited us to see one of his gigs on his live tour, but asks that i don't throw poopcicals at him, I'm worried that I will now be known as that weird girl who he talked poopcicals with rather than the inspirational girl he originally thought I was. :-/

So that's my up date on going to see Russell Howard.
Just a few other things to say, I had my meeting on Monday about home care, we have been told we need to move, upsetting and annoying. But a needs must. The stairs are simply to hard for me to deal with and we can't have a stair lift fitted as its a private rent, Last time I used the stair i ended up with a temperature as my lungs are just to weak and can't handle them anymore. In the mean time I will have a OT assessment and careers coming in to help with physio, cleaning, mealtimes and general day to day stuff I may need help with. Also I am still set homeward bound for Friday!!! I am soooo excited!! IVs and lots of meds in the mix but lets just hope I'm home for at least a week.
