You know how to have fun. I never knew that about Maxine Peake - interesting. BTW I had the volume up on my computer and nearly had a heart attack when Bowie started up spontaneously!

Great stuff. Like it a lot.

I sat beside Maxine Peake in the cinema once. She might have been with Anna Friel. I can't remember. I was quietly excited. Well, who wouldn't be? I don't think she noticed. She's cool though. And bloody good at her job.
