The Monty Cardboard Robot Club and the Olympic Sculpture
I am off out very shortly to a preview to am exhibition where the Cultural Olympian is being exhibited. Strangely this is not the Olympic part of the exhibition but as it is finished it is in there doing its bit (the cardboard Olympian). I think there was meant to be slightly more Olympic based art in this exhibition but artists are reluctant to do that as the market for such things is rather limited.
the Cultural Olympian has since moved to the middle of the hall
and quite right too
We are also off to sponsor someone who is off to the far reaches of the world to do good deeds and the like and maybe have a good time; I think you are allowed to do both.
I will try and get a decent photo of the Cultural Olympian as I mingle drinking champagne and eating posh stuff on little crackers….. Ah apparently I am not allowed the champagne …………DAMN I have been informed that The Monty Cardboard Robot Club it tea total which is very unfair bearing in mind I am the only member. It also appears that champagne is not an official Olympic sponsor so I am not allowed to be associated with it, I didn’t have this problem at the International Implausible Gallery of Insubstantial Rationality although not be real very few people turned up and I did get into an argument with that Andy Warhol who was standing on an invisible plinth with Marilyn Monroe sticking his tongue out at me.
By the Way does this link work for you lot...... it does for me but I have tried it with other blogs and they are not so happy
By the way I really don't know who the people are in this picture
they were at the preview
So here I am much later having been to the preview where the cardboard sculpture of the Olympic torch bearer otherwise known as the cultural Olympian is now centre stage and having also been to another event to scoff curries and gooey puds with cream and meringue and chocolate. Somehow I also ended up winning a small grey kitten, but after a bit of wheeler dealing I ended up with a rather good bottle of wine and five magic beans…… I don’t drink wine so just as well I got the magic beams really. The dog is muttering something about I should have got magic mushrooms but they are hardly going to grow into a huge beam stalk. And mum has called both me and the dog IDIOTS now?
