Hula Hoops are not for Boys

26th July 2012

I firmly believe there are certain things which men and women are just naturally better at, I'm certainly not going to list them though and get myself in trouble, one of these things is hula hooping! I was at the Back on the map Hendon together summer fun day and somehow found myself with a hula hoop being challenged to keep going longer than a number of competitors. I wasn't very good. Although by the end of the day I had improved considerably but still wasn't as good as everybody else there. It's one of those things where you know the principal and what you need to do, but just can't put it into practice. I was aware it was all in the hips, but I couldn't stop myself putting my whole body into it. I was watching everybody else doing it and mainly the girls who made it look so easy, they looked like they were hardly moving at all. As I say I got better towards the end of the day, but everytime thought to myself "I've got it..." I would distract myself from the task in hand and drop the hoop! You can check out the photo's by clicking on our gallery.

The next big thing I'm embarking on is appearing for one night only in the Sunderland Empire's stage experience production of FAME. I have 2 lines! I’ll be playing Elliott Green - the sleazy record producer that gets Carmen to leave school to work for him. My big two lines are these:

"Hey sweet cheeks. Last night was great. Now you’ve signed with me, I’m going to get you heard on radio stations around the world including Sun FM."

I think I'll be fine memorising this, but I think I have to perfect an American accent, which should be tricky. If you are coming along to see the show, please be kind! It's on 3rd and 4th August at Sunderland Empire.
