Look I hate to admit it but sometimes I agree with Richard (of RBB).

The old joker's a bit off track most times but when it comes to watching a film with your loved one I'd back his choice any day even if it will probably be something with Bruce Willis, Liam Neeson or Sylvester Stallone in it.

Last night, as the guests had gone home The Old Girl suggested that we watch a film from Lightbox or Netflix. "Uh oh" I thought, picking up the remote and quickly flicking through the film options to try and find something that I'd like to watch that might please her as well. Everything that flashed past was dire. She said "wait, wait, go back. I did ..... to The Danish Girl. WTF!

A film about cross-dressing Lili Elbe played by that already unusual looking Eddie Redmayne who has pioneering sex reassignment surgery.


We want to watch this? Really?

Apparently we did as that was what was viewed.

I persevered for about 20 minutes before making ever longer trips away from the lounge- making tea, going for a pee, hiding in a cupboard going to the study to check the blogs. etc.

Eventually I gave up on the film totally leaving The Old Girl to it on her own. I updated most of my blogs which due to the number of them took about as long as the rest of the film had to run.


If anyone disputes to me the differences between men and women then I'll just refer them to the films that women watch vs the films that men (want to) watch.

I hope you weren't wearing Shelley's underwear.
