(45) Pie in the sky...

Although the writing is going really well at the mo' (update to folow)-
pie in the sky might well be what I aiming at, you know, the professionally produced, filmed script written by me.

But here's a different kind of pie to cheer us up on a cold, wet (typically British - is it August already?) day.

No, not a hot apple or cherry pie smoothered in steaming, creamy custard (oh- er gone all a bit "this is M&S food" there) but a pie chart.

Like they had in Maths class. Or Sales conferences. (Hi Rach!)

What with all the nostalgia flying around the blogoshpere on the film posters from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to Bambi to horny secretarys and more and thought I'd ask if anyone remembers the one (or two) hit wonder Rick Astley?

You do?
Good.
You remember that song we all danced/tried to pull to?
Great.

Here then is the mathematical Rick Astley pie chart...

Ah, you gotta love an 80s nostalgia pie chart.

Did you do that?

If so, I prescribe more rewriting as the cure.

Hi Lucy!

Rewriting's going fine, I took 5 mins off to loaf about surfing and found this somewhere, so I thought I'd share it for a laff...

How's your gammy eye? better yet?

Got 3 fave film posters for the challenge?

Hi. Yes I remember Rick Astley. But as I think I was already going out with Rachael when it came out, and as Rachael will probably read this, I feel I should point out that I never, ever, tried to pull to ‘Never Gona Give You Up.’ Unless of course it was playing when I succeeded in pulling Rachael. Or should that be, when Rachael allowed me into her life. (Sorry Rach.) Oh and my real reason for commenting, (apart from complimenting you on a lovely pie chart,) is to point out that there is a ‘L’ missing from the end of your link to me. I clicked it and went nowhere, for a second I thought I didn’t exist. (Yes I’m a sad git and I check any links I find to me.)

Bugger this cursed Rick Astley post!

It's repeating things now.

I say,

It's repeating things now.

(sure Rick talks like that)

Didn't know if it was something wrong with my blog, (Is it possible to break the internet? Of course it is you just have to Google the word Google.) so I did a copy and paste of the two URL’s into notepad. I’m a low-tech kind of guy.
