The News

Perhaps it's because it is August. I'll keep it short.

I am fed up to the back teeth with...

1. Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears and Coleen Mcloughlin falling out of my newspaper every morning while I'm trying to have a decent cup of coffee without spilling it.

2. Newsreaders, footballers and celebrity chefs whose 'family secrets' are splattered everywhere, even through the pages of The Independent. And the story is thus: They are born into miserable circumstances / family misfortune / destitution / have a murderer / thief / bankrupt in the family history (hey, who hasn't?) yet despite these inauspicious circumstances have risen through their own efforts, talents and passions to become the newsreader / footballer / celebrity chef that we love today.

3. The Freud family.

4. Journalists interviewing each other.

5. What any member of the Royal Family is doing, or not doing. Well I might just knock together a press release and send it to the palace. And tell them what the Grit family is doing. And not doing.

There. That's as short as a Grit-in-a-Huff can manage.

Yep - can't bear any news about the Royals. Couldn't care less about any of 'em. Same goes for all those fake breasted blonde women who seem to be some sort of celebrity.
