Ju Ju's Doppelganger (and no, it's not Bu Bu)

Patsington and I spend (a little too much) time wondering what Ju Ju resembles most. Is it a monster? Is it a revolting sulky child? Is it a fluffy little angel? Perhaps. Except for that last one. The debate has raged for several years now, but yesterday Patsington finally got it.

"She's like Cilla from Coronation Street!" he cried. And so she is. Like Ju Ju, Cilla is stout, greedy, and bad tempered with no concern for the feelings of others. In fact, they even look alike, as these pictures show:

Are they related? I think we should be told...

Calling all ladies who love movies: thanks to the hard work of some of my fellow ex-Ladyfesters, the first Girls on Film night will take place this Thursday in Bodkin's (on Bolton Street, in case you don't know). There will be a film! And popcorn! And discussion of the film (which is I Shot Andy Warhol, which I saw in Boston back in 1997, and although I can remember the night I saw it I can't remember whether I liked the film or not, so I'm looking forward to seeing it again). So do come along to join in the discussion.
