Which of these would you rather have outside your house?

Well don't worry, because if you live at number 79 Marine Parade, you can have both.

I went for a walk around Kemp Town yesterday afternoon following a 'Plaque Trail' created by The Regency Society (who obviously have bad teeth). It's designed for people who think Patsy Palmer is the most famous person who ever lived here, and guides you past twenty or so commemorative plaques dedicated to the likes of Dame Flora Robson, Lord Olivier and Ronald McDonald.

Well ok, Ron isn't an official part of the tour, but he has just finished renovating a large house fifty yards along the road from me, and I noticed on my way home yesterday that an engraved plaque has now gone up on the side of the building, dedicated to Ronald and all his burger-flipping charity work. It's enough to bring a tear to the eye. I have to say though, they've done out the exterior of the house very nicely. I'd pay good money to live there. It's almost worth having a sick child.

Anyhoo, I'd tell you more about the Plaque Trail (and the urine warning signs), but I'm supposed to be writing an article about it for The Kemptown Rag, and I don't want to burn myself out. And besides, I can't think of anything to say.

But in other news, I've had an e-mail from someone at Pennsbury High School in Pennsylvania (which is famous enough to have its own Wikipedia page), asking if they can perform Ledgers at their annual One-Act Play Festival. They sound quite enthusiastic. Possibly because they haven't read the script yet.

Naturally I've said yes. Paramount have bought the film rights to a year in the life of the school, so if I play my cards right I could be at the Oscars come February.
