1) I moved into a shared house some 3 months after I walked out of the Shithouse of Smethwick
2) I went to the Absoulty Fabulos Premiere at Crown Casino in Melbourne.
I had just done spending my first week in Melbourne, I had resumed work, found a place to live but I needed something to top it off
After doing a bit of research I realized there would be a red carpet with Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders walking down it. I rushed from my new house to Crown Casino, walked my way past the guard and I took my prime spot.
At first a whole bunch of Drag Queens walked down the red carpet. One of them had a dress that reminded me of the old DAVID JONES.
Around 7pm Patsy and Edina walked down the red carpet. This was like my only chance to see Joanna Lumley in public.
I grew up in Australia, not watching Absolutely Fabulous. It took me until I was 27 to find out about Joanna when I watched her travel OVERLAND from Egypt to Rwanda, following the source of the Nile while visiting some of the most hostile areas of Africa.
Seeing Joanna Lumley in public made me cry as well. I many never get to meet her again but I just feel it's been grateful that in 2016 I got to meet Jonny Blair and see Joanna Lumley in public.
