Yeah. Cheers. Thanks a lot.

Well, hello.

...how lame, I know. But it's a beginning. I promise I'll try to get better.

After being welcomed by Philippa in a very sweet PM, I decided to give it a shot (preferrably small bore *evil snickers*) and introduce myself.

I know at least two members on here from the ECB forum... Vann, I saw you. ;) ... and Kirsty, thanks for sending me the link. I really like it here so far.

Now let me think ... okay, that might take a while ... write what comes to mind first ... that'S a good idea. Bad thing is that the first thing that just came to my mind is that I really should get my hair cut again soon.

ANYway... I can always delete and edit this, right?

My nickname is Cira and I'm from Germany. It's sunny here right now and spring is finally here. Which is a nice thing, because I won't need the heating for the next couple of weeks until I will desperately wish for it to be winter again due to the fact that my flat will turn into an oven. Yes, I live under the roof in a house that was built before the great wars.
The highlight of my day today is leaving work at 3pm to go shopping with my Mom. No, that sounds incredibly dull but believe me; it isn't. My Mom is great fun to be with.

I admire Ms Lumley not only for her incredible on screen presence but for the person behind the celebrity or at least the part of it I got to know through reading about her charity work and seeing all those youtube clips of her interviews.

As you can see I chose 'Sapphire' as my username. She is one of my favorite Joanna characters. Even though there are a bunch more that I really like, Sapphire is the one I feel most connected to.
Strange, isn't it? Oh well, that's why I am. ;) You'll get used to it. ... I guess.

My collection of JL material is slowly growning.
Maybe I should make a list, so we can check what you guys already have and what I could contribute to the forum?
Okay, so far I have:

Books
No Room For Secrets -HC-

Audio Books
No Room For Secrets -CD-
Tales of the Unexpected -Tape-
Joanna Lumley reads Rupert Bear -Tape-
Love All -CD-

CDs
Roland Dahl's "Show White"

DVDs
Sapphire & Steel 'Special Edition' DVD set
Marple: The Body in the Library

VHS
Absolutely Fabulous: Absolutely Not!

AVIs
Absolutely Fabulous
Cold Comfort Farm
Coming Home
Corpse Bride
Joanna Lumley in the land of the Northern Lights
Nancherrow
The New Avengers S2

Others
Souvenir programme to 'Vanilla'

Okay, I'll better pretend to work again.
What? I pretend to work, they pretend to pay me. ... Stoli anybody?

If you have any questions - just ask away.

*lol* Why thank you, Sammy. Nice to meet you.

I'm actually working on it ... there's still a bunch of material I am eager to get my hands on. But I ran out of money for the month. ;)

Hi Cira, it's nice to have you here!

You have an impressive colletion - I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy the topics we've already started about the work she has done over the years, and of course you're always welcome to open another one. (or two...)

Nice to have a Sapphire devotee here beside the Purdey and Patsy addicts around.. :wink: Have fun!

Hi Maartje!

Thanks for the warm welcome. :)
Well, my collection is still growing and thanks to the massive media section of this board it's getting larger as we speak. I wouldn't have dreamt of finding these many files! It's amazing!!

I will definitely try to contribute and become part of this wonderful group as best as I can.

I have read some former entries but some of the threads have been around for so long that I am having difficulties to get into the topic without repeating what someone else already said/asked.
But I'm sure I'll get the hang of it eventually. ;)

Oh yes, "Sapphire devotee" all the way here. *lol*
Purdey & Patsy are great roles too. It's amazing how different the roles are and how Ms Lumley still is capable of creating a character that lives and breathes and is so utterly believable. It's what great actresses do, I guess. But to know that she never went to drama school and still has this ability is amazing me.

I'll better shut up now or I'll never will. ;)

Oh, I'm glad you've found (and like!) the media section! We tried to upload as many Joanna related files as possible, and thanks to some of our fantastic members, we've got a pretty nice bunch of downloads meanwhile.

Oh don't worry about what others have said before... :wink: I know we've discussed a lot on the forum already - particular Avengers related topics, that board is pretty popular meanwhile, haha.

She is totally capable of creating completely different, but fantastic characters every time that keep us amazed. And one can only hope she'll keep on going like that for many more years!

It seems you appreciate our media section. If you need new links, I can reupload almost everything so don't hesitate to ask.;)

Be careful! You just created a monster! ;)

I actually went through the whole media section yesterday and made a list of what to download next (with all the megaupload links) ... as well as a list with links that don't work anymore ... sooooo ........ :angel: .
I'm totally going to ask for favors. *lol*
Just not before I have not downloaded a few chunks of what doesn't need to be redone.
But I _am_ really anxious to get Sensitive Skin for instance. (Which doesn't work at the moment as far as I remember).

Okay, off to dance around the room for a moment and then get back to work. :lol:
I just hope my colleagues will blame it on the arrival of spring. They have no idea. ;)

Re: Yeah. Cheers. Thanks a lot.

I'm a sort of monster too, I keep downloading loads of stuff all night and day long. My nickname should be freaky-froggie, the crazy downloader :lol:
I'm stuck at home, on sick leave for the next 2 months. I'm bored and don't have anything else to do than downloading and uploading.

*lol* My new best friend. ;)

Well, I will make sure you'll have lots to upload then ... just to keep you occupied.
Isn't that incredibly generous and unselfish of me. ;) :angel:

May I ask why you're on sick leave? 2 months ... that's one hell of a long time. I hope it's nothing serious.

Re: Yeah. Cheers. Thanks a lot.

Not easy to explain, something wrong in my lungs. I began to feel bad in october just after travellling to London to celebrate my birthday : my gift was the French and Saunders still alive show :wub: and since then I breathe like Darth Vader. I can't make any effort or I feel like I'm gonna suffocate. I managed to go from time to time to college thanks to my car but I should have begun an intership last week and I really can't walk more than 5 minutes. The specialist doesn't even know if I will be able to go to work in june. So internet and chocolate are my drugs at the moment !

Yikes, that sounds like it might hurt ... and it totally calls for you sending me you address so I can stock up your chocolate reserves. ;)

Well, Darth Froggie, I really hope you're going to get better soon.
