Rachel aka Linda Lucious

Well, today has been interesting to say the least.

Firstly my second lunch with the charming DLOG. Which went to prove there IS such a thing as a free lunch...

Secondly, an evening at the Soho Revue Bar for the launch of the new book The Accidental Pornographer by Gavin Griffiths. I was honoured to have been asked to write the foreword; all guests were given a name badge with their aka ... Of which mine was Linda Lucious! Seriously though, it's a great book, hugely funny and well worth a read.

Well, well, well, what do you know, I have also been invited to The Revue Bar, by The Cherrybrakewells, a stunning little trio, do check them out and you'll see.
With regards to the 2nd Lunch, it was my great pleasure to buy lunch for you Rachel. And I look forward to buying you lunch again.

And just for you Elz; put that in your pipe and smoke it! See Rachel thinks I am charming!!

Thanks many times Rachel

Ooh, forgot, shouldn't it have been Ravenous Rachel!!

Anne Herbert said...

DLOG - You buy Rachel lunch, you call her ravenous and she calls you charming? Did I miss a trick?
:-)

Sounds like a good time was had by all - and wasn't Walcott brilliant?

TheDLOG said...

Anne, she is brilliant, I have met two other wonderful charasmatic people in my life;

One was The Bishop of our Greek Orthodox Church, and the was Dr. Stavros Panteli, both of which gave inspiration in an unprsidented way, but I have to admit that Rachel has that little extra something, she makes one feel at ease just with her presence alone.
A woman to be truly admired by all.

Perhaps I should blog Dr S Info on my blog site for all to see and read.

That's what makes Rachel such a brilliant mentor - I've had the privilege for the last 12 months...

Anne

TheDLOG said...

Absolutely!! What more can one say?
Give my blog a visit to read about Dr. Stavros, it just reiterates that there are wonderful people around, and unfortunately there are some who like Dr.Stavros, that have passed away, but, will still be remembered by all who knew him.

Sorry Anne, but, I don't get the Walcott bit, I am missing something?

Anne Herbert said...

Anne

TheDLOG said...

No problem Anne, I am unusual, probably the only bloke in the world who doesn't like football!!

Get a life dlog, you sound weird? Why would you buy a millionaire lunch? and she sits and eats like a pig she is.

Sad freaks, maybe you are freaks in love...

Ciao

Rachel Elnaugh said...

I would like to think I have quite a good radar for 'slimy peverted deviants' and DLOG didn't strike me as one... Otherwise I would not have agreed to meet him again.

TheDLOG said...

anonymous 1 & 2, sticks and stones, sticks & stones,

have a nice day

Rachel Elnaugh said...

Golly gosh, just seen the other 'anonymous' message, what kind of dark world do these people live in ????

TheDLOG said...

Anonymous, "eats like a pig", what would you know, Rachel is actually a vegitarian, and having met her I would say she is probably a size 10.
So don't quite understand where you get the pig from, as they are fat and gorge themselves.

Stephen said...

I think you have a mental problem anonymous. I'd be glad to meet you with a big spade to put you out of your misery.

Another, (more constructive) way of course - would be to go out and make a lot of money.

That way you can stop living like an "anonymouse" and be accepted as someone worth knowing.

TheDLOG said...

Stephen, that's if I don't get to them first with a bigger shovel!!

SO why does Rachel only meet one person, DLOG?

I recently met a millionaire who featured on "Secret Millionaire" and this person was charming and insightful.

I have an impression that rachel isnt this kind of person?

and im not the same Anonymous as the others, i am jade j89_magic@yahoo.co.uk

TheDLOG said...

Jade, assuming that is your name, I can't answer that question "SO why does Rachel only meet one person, DLOG?"
Further more she does meet others when she is doing her Masterclasses, so I do not really know where you are coming from.
"I recently met a millionaire who featured on "Secret Millionaire" and this person was charming and insightful." That must have been nice for you, but trust me Rachel is a lovely person, why would you think anything different of her.
And I also stress again I AM NOT AFTER ANYTHING. I enjoy to mix with all sorts of people, and I like people for who they are not what they have. I hope this now puts any thoughts of me out to gain at rest to all who read Rachels Blog.

Indeed it does DLOG,

Bless you, have a lovely friday evening.

Jade.

TheDLOG said...

Jade, thanks, I would love to have a good Friday evening, but I am still in the office, and probably not be home till about 11pm. But anyway I hope you have a nice Friday evening and weekend.

Jo said...

I gotta say, you do sound like a pratt Dlog. But that doesn't mean i don't like Rachel, cos i do..

TheDLOG said...

What do you mean I sound like a pratt?

DLOG

Leona said...

lol theDlog, maybe you would get out of the office earlier if you didn't spend half of the evening posting on this blog!! :)

TheDLOG said...

Problem is Leona someone sends a 4 colour job in at 6pm and they want delivery 1pm next day, what would you say, no thank you to work?
Any way what is this have a dig at DLOG or something?

DLOG

Leona said...

It wasn't a dig, the comment was made in a jovial manner simply in response to you still being in the office so late.

If I had said it in person it would have been backed up with a cheeky smile!!

Any comments I make here or anywhere are never born out of malice.

In answer to your question, no I would also be sat in the office getting the work out.

TheDLOG said...

Leona, really sorry, I thought you where having a dig, a few others have been and I assumed that you where joining in also, really really sorry,

Leona said...

Agh easy to do with the current tone of this thread. Their problem with you, is just that, their problem.

Life is much easier and happier when you are positive and aren't constantly looking for fault in others.

Therefore, you will always be in a stronger, healthier position than anyone who is being negative towards you.

Don't let them get to you.

TheDLOG said...

Leona, they do not get to me, I actually find them kind amusing, how do these people minds work? They obviously let there minds start doing overtime, but for the wrong reasons!!

Leona said...

Good, I agree it is very bizarre!

Stephen said...

I think people don't need to be so facetious and others don't need to be so worried about being attacked. Its all just noise anyway.

Personally, I think it would be a good idea to hear what people would really like to talk about on this blog.

If people want to have a dig at Rachel, then why don't they email her with some suggestions for topics. I am sure she would publish them (and be open).

Some people seem very unhappy with her, but i say, if you have something to say, lets get it out in the open. Don't crash into positive threads and effectively scribble all over them.

I came to this blog because i thought i could learn something, i could offer something and because i respect Rachel for what she did at RLD.

Is this not a good spirit to be taking forward?

TheDLOG said...

Stephen, I agree with you people shouldn't be worried about being attacked, but you have to admit that some comments to the DLOG where a bit rude, "slimey, perverted deviant, a pratt". Come on, I think this kind of talk is not only disrespectful to me but also to Rachel, it is HER BLOG, if someone has something to say, say it but keep it within context, also if anyone really wants to slag off TheDLOG then go visit his blog spot, Rachel' blog spot is, in my opinion, is for her post'/blogs not to slag off other people.

I hope you all get where I am coming from?

DLOG - As a man thinketh in his heart - so is he!

Negative comments from these anonymous cowards should be treated with the contempt they deserve. I simply cannot respect anyone who can heap this kind of abuse on anyone anonymously or not - to me it's a reflection of the person inside. Bitter, twisted and downright sad!
@nne

TheDLOG said...

Cowards they are. Respect, rightly or wrongly,my opinion is we all EARN respect. I fear not of people saying what they like to me, but how can one be so judgemental of others if you do not them, I would be pleased for these cowards to come and tell me to my face what there thoughts were. Also I think people that hurl abuse are jealous of others, for what reason I do not know, but a word of advice to those cowards; "come on Rachels blog and LEARN, and the first key word to your new learning curve should be the word, POSITIVE. You will all be amazed at how far you will travel anonymice.

I agree DLOG. They are rude and immature.
