Madonna -Royal visit Number Two


Okay. Cosmetic surgeried to within an inch of her life, hanging shamelessly around with toy boys not much older than her daughter, and dogged by rumours that she mimes her concerts, could we ever really believe Madonna was going to act her age and fade away quietly, like any other fifty three years old, seasoned, well-lived, lady? For those of us who can't help but admire the general display of grit, cajones, balls, (or whatever you want to call it) the prospect of another chance to witness the Queen in action is proving irresistible.

 Especially as her 2004 visit

And even though the thoughts of queuing and standing for hours on Tuesday night, 24th July, already has the sane person inside me going: "Mari, are you nuts, you're far too old for that stuff,"
the less sane person inside is going, "you're not the only one around here who doesn't act her age."

No, Mari, we should never act our age,lucky you,I'd love to go see Madonna.
As Johnny Depp/The Mad hatter in Alice in Wonderland said -only the best people are bonkers-.
Enjoy it:)

Thanks Brigid.
Feels like aeons away at the moment so I'm trying not to think too much about all the hardship...glutton for punishment, me.

Go for it Mari. If enough of us had her cojones, acting our age would take on a new meaning. Ripening ladies of the world unite! At least you've got a few months to get into training for queuing. DX
