Diary of Lisa Taylor, reluctantly 42 (and a half)

Or.. 'f.ck me I'm forty.. two.. and a half', though can look 38 on a - not so deluded - good day. Or 'How to reconcile a well experienced mind trapped in a still - but for how long? – youthful body.' Don't have the 30somethings angst/problems, neither have the resigned (?) ageing baby-boomers in safe family territory outlook yet. Here's how I cope, one day all sexy women will get old... but never invisible. © Lisa Taylor 2005/6/7/8/9. Jeez.. so much for the 42 and-a-half delusion

16 July - Recession defying parties

Off to a Summer party in Kinglsand Rd which the owners of some editing suites have been throwin annually. This year it rains. Shame but it's nice and they treat us well with food and drink though we're meant to wrap our food since there's no cutlery. Is this a great cost cutting idea or what? At some point I get a tour of the various editing suites and Toph who's feeling amorous declares he'd love to find a dark one to take me in but ... they're all locked up naturally unless you're with the owners who will show you round. Toph confesses he's never done it in an editing suite. And after all these years of being a director. Awww, there's always a first time. Must organise it for him....

Spend some time talking to Don Letts who's on a rant about who owns his own culture, since he's trying to make a program about fifty years of Notting Hill Carnival which the BBC has always filmed but want incredibly high fees to licence for usage. Since they pay their top employees and thei top expenses lots of dosh, it makes sense they have to raise it somewere and from use of their catalogue, but he does have a point.
