I’ve conceived a new character. Not a Knight to tell the Knight’s Tale, but a queen, a drag queen! I think it was inspired, if that’s the word, by visiting the Elephant and Castle shopping centre and remembering it’s camp as christmas days but noticing the Bingo Palace on the second floor and letting my mind wander. I did a virtual tour of various Bingo Palace’s which were quite disappointing. I was expecting the camp Victorian-style venues with red velvet curtains and mirrorballs. Instead, they looked clean but cloned. Part of a chain. Which they are. So I decided Bingo Palace should be rebranded (like Margate) and in doing that, the whole of the shopping centre would be glammed up. So I have a few ideas which I’m not giving away at the moment, not that I’m being precious or superstitious. Just that I’m going on holiday and haven’t packed anything yet. But was feeling guilty that I’d neglected this blog recently so wanted to touch base before disappearing. Worry not. The Canterbury Tales (as opposed to Chaucer’s Complete Works) arrived so it is on my bed to be packed. It will be my bible, my complete works of Shakespeare on the (desert) isle of Purbeck. Wish me luck!
