that princess di was dead?
my mum came in and woke me up.
i was like 'i don't care'
though i think my words were more akin to "mmmhpphhhrryeahok."
my mother wasn't all that bothered either though. think her respectful words on the event were 'so that silly woman's dead. what a silly woman.'
at my old house, waiting to go to Mass.
But then Channel 4 came and saved the day by showing cartoons and Alex Mack all afternoon. Yay for Channel 4!
he knows. He always knows.
You must of only been like 10, 11, right? That's fine!
I still watch Simpsons...
whatever was on Live & kicking/Fully Booked innit?
When i was 11 and 12 I watched Mona The Vampire, Arthur and Fairly Odd Parents.
I STILL watch Fairly Odd Parents, actually. It fucking rules.
just fairly odd parents or sprongebob occasionally.
And all your usual Family Guy, Drawn Together kind of stuff.
on fairly odd parents!
But he turned it down because "he didn't want the fame" :D :D
That was years ago though...
Actually, it might've been My Parents Are Aliens, I don't really know..
is Fairly Odd Parents a cartoon?
It must've been the aliens one.
I wish I had a cartoon friend.
I used to have an imaginary friend :( She was Isabelle.
Too much information?
Also: Your friend is a newb. That's right.
I haven't spoken to him in years. He had anger issues.
you're better out with such riff-raff.
I was going to start a thread on it, but then I realised all my threads are on TV programmes, so I left it. But it was AMAZING.
what was it about?
And I thought "Wasn't there a character called Binky?" and it was, and when Arthur imagined Binky meeting Binky they were all "Binky, meet Binky. Binky meet Binky." And then they invited Binky into their limo, because he had the same name as them, leaving Arthur by himself, even though Binky wouldn't have even been able to meet Binky if it hadn't been for Arthur. Then they were like "Do you luge?", and I laughed more than I've laughed at a TV programme in years. But then it turned out Binky weren't real, just a bunch of holograms :(
I must sleep now.
Good night everyone x
We all burst out into singing the Arther theme tune, everyone remember all the words except for me.
Everybody that you meet
Has an original point of view!
I thought you'd have learnt them by now :(
do a cover of the Arthur song, it was really good. The end.
kdis crying, flicking from every channel and the same footage over and over.
I missed sesame street. The bastards
i was in a motel in Strasbourg with my dad and my brother
the first announcement that dodi fayed was dead.
went to bed.
di was dead
getting ready to go to meadowhall, when my mum shouted up.
probably the last time i went to meadowhall actually. not that im blaming that on di or anything, its just shit.
whilst settling down to sleep on a mate's sofa and flicked the TV on
I was still on the sofa about 7 hours later when I woke up, turned the TV on and she was dead
on a ferry. They stopped the fucking boat in the middle of the sea for 2 hours!
Me and my Dad were well pissed off. First time I got drunk :D
did they think it meant the UK were at war with France?
a mark of respect or something.
The one place you don't want to be at a time like that is stuck in a giant metal box with only idiotic british tourists wailing and screaming everywhere.
So my Dad took me to the bar and got me drunk.
Your dad is clearly quite cool.
he was just very pissed off!
I was 13 i think - just finished year 8.
my mum flew over for the fucking funeral.
she never expressed interest in her before...
oldie came in and woke me up, i could hear the news and she started telling me about it as she handed me some porridge in a not-quite-washed-out-enough margerine tub.
my step-dad really liked her and she always recognised him and knew him by name.
turned the tv on and vaguely remember hearing something about a car crash and she'd sustained a broken arm.
My bother told me when I woke up that she was dead. I said "fuck off, she's only broken her arm".
She is dead now though, yeah?
put Sky on to watch Goals On Sunday, it was on Sky News for some reason. It took a moment to register.
to play sunday league football when my Nana rang and told my mam, she then told me. I then went to football.
it was on the radio, my family and i were coming back from (a caravan) holiday (in the the new forest) at first we didnt know who everyone was talking about
I saw it on the news in my living room. My mum was still in bed, so I went through to tell her. She didn't believe me and even after seeing it on the telly herself, she still didn't believe it.
after a meal i had with family.
We were all set to go out for one of the bi-annual(ish) big family days out, with EVERYONE there
Phone calls were made to test the water, and it was decided we should still go. It was at some famous castle, and the flag was flying at half mast. There were scotch eggs involved at some point, and my cousin Caroline got pissed and fell off her chair
A horribly gash line-up of has-beens mostly, but American tv will have full coverage! Reading? I dunno. Glasto? Nope. ATP? Uh huh. Diana? We're there! Go Elton!!...erm, excuse me: Sir Elton. haha!!
I have no idea where I was when Diana died. I have no real feelings about the Royal Family ...but I'm not all cynical either. She seemed rather cool actually. Well, except for her turning on Fergie. Other than that I'm holding a candle in the wind for her highness.
princess di died ?
innocently pursuing... erm... my hobby.
My mum woke me up.
Other people she has accorded this honor to include
Jam Master Jay
up to play Sunday morning football. They considered calling our under 15s game off. There was uproar among the players. The game was played.
to caravanners in a field in Ashbourne, Derbyshire. My reaction: 'Oh. Oh well. Anyone want this one, I've put a bit too much brown sauce on it'.
who had pictures of the royal family covering her walls.
We never did get to go to Legoland that year.
At home I came downstairs and m ymum was watching the news. I remember my mate asking if I thought we'd get a day off school for teh duneral.
I answered the phone one Sunday morning EARLY post house party (9am - waaaaay to early - pre mobile era and no answer machine) and my housemates best friend was on the phone saying, 'turn on the tv!! Diana is dead!!'
To which I did turn the TV on and yes, she was indeed dead.
To be honest, her interviews pre divorcing Charles had more of an impact on me and seemingly the media... Dunno.
THERE YOU GO.
I was in London and bought an early edition of one of the Sunday newspapers.There were pages and pages of paparazzi photos of Di and Dodi on a yacht - there was a special supplement devoted to these.
Turning on the radio when I got home, the news said that there had been an accident, that Dodi was dead and Di was alright but a bit bashed up. I remember thinking 'That's going to knacker the newspapers' and going to sleep.
When I woke up the next morning and I thought my radio was broken - all channels just kept playing dirge like music. And of course, she was dead.
I wish that I hadn't left that newpaper on the train - it would be worth a fortune.
a tunnel in Paris, cursing the fact I forgot to pack my camera
I didn't care but went to visit the LA "shrine" thing out of curiousity and there were loads of the usual idiots but an American version weeping and writing crap on bits of paper
I came downstairs and my dad was watching teletext and he told me. It's pretty strange how clearly I remember it.
mum told me.
i reacted with disbelief.
it was weird.
except i was upstairs
also, no perversion involved
after a really bad night with my Dad. My aunt shouted over the wall for us to turn the tv on and there it was!
my dad woke me up...think I managed to shout/mutter- 'I don't fucking care, leave me alone' before going back to sleep.
Girlfriend had same experience, only it was her mum.
in my living room
with some other mates after a heavy night of youthful partying. She was going "omg omg" and I was like "what?" then she told me.
Dur. Dur. Dur.
turned on the telly and it was on every channel.
Where were you when you heard Helen Daniels had died?
my radio alarm started playing pan pipes to me, and i knew something was up
my brother read it on teletext, didn't really know what to think about it all, being a young un.
