Apparently, according to the newspapers this week, I am one of a new breed of HENS. Yes, that's me, I'm a hen. And apart from the insulting clucking implication, or perhaps the suggestion that people my age have little brain and even less purpose, it stands for Happy Empty Nester.

We barely escaped with our lives and were chased by an angry and murderous mob for a good mile out of town.

Our mind is always 'flitting'. It's a leftover from the old days when our lives depended on it. Back then if we didn't keep flitting our focus in all directions, something with large teeth would have come up behind us and had us for lunch.

So the best thing about being in a feature film is that you get your own trailer, with your own loo (get me!) and your name on the door. Actually its never your name is your character's name which is odd - perhaps they want you to stay in character all the time like Daniel Day Lewis...

The modern Big Brother has no problem in making itself explicitly clear that they do not care about pleasing viewers ethically, showcasing 'nice' people and giving people a fair chance at winning a life changing sum of money. If you are cast as a housemate, the producers owe you nothing.

If you went down a manhole and sat there in the dark, what's swarming around up there in your brain sums up whom you really are.

Becky Hopper

I'm a feminist, of course I'm a feminist, I have a vagina. What person with a vagina wouldn't want equality between men AND women? Which is essentially what feminism means.
