Dreadful Nonsense

"I've read your blog. it's really funny. you should write a column." - Jon Ronson

Bad day for Derren Brown, as the police in Jersey - where the russian roulette stunt was apparently performed - have admitted that he used a blank bullet during the trick. They also used the word "prop" repeatedly in their statement to the press. And the following brilliant passage - "This programme was made by a TV company very experienced in pyrotechnics, in making smoke and bullet holes appear. It was no different to film which uses special effects." So for those people hanging on for dear life to the thought that their Derren is really magic, a sad day indeed.

And today's MRI update - I had exactly the same conversation with the MRI gimps today that I had two months ago. We're going nowhere, and we're all going there together. They did confirm that my original appointment is still there, so the plane crash nightmares can continue tonight unabated. But apparently the "gentleman" who needs to speak to the "other gentleman" (her words) wasn't in today, but he would be in tomorrow, and then someone will give me a ring. Seeing as I've been told that every time I've rung since July - apart from the part about the two gentlemen and their important conversation - I'm not holding my breath.
