"A piece of cheese, if you please, a slice or two is better - New Zealand true, colby or blue, from goat through brie and feta. Plain or smoked, I would be stoked to try them all in time with dips, or plain, with breads or grain, and a mandatory glass of wine!"
"I've grown accustomed to MY face, it always makes the day begin!I've grown accustomed to my size, the laughter in my eyes, my smile, my frown, my jowls hang down! I've grown accustomed to the sound of silence all around, no kids, no man, no "Can't" now "Can". I've grown accustomed to my hair, it's growing everywhere, especially on my face!"
on My Fair Lady
"Just to be able to touch my toes again would be an amazing feat for me, so my undying admiration would have to go to the contortionists who can turn themselves inside out, and then outside in again, to stand upright with every single bone in the body still in the correct order and place! My double jointed little fingers pales to insignificance!"
"My most romantic moment was when my late partner, following a show he produced and directed in which I was his leading lady, knelt down on one knee at the aftershow party, looked me in the eyes held my hand and sang the song "Marry Me, Marry Me, Marry Me". I wilted and between tears said "Yes". We were married in our garden three months later, but sadly a week after that my leading man died of Leukemia. "
"Our own Malcolm McNeil - a beautiful crooner/balladeer whose mellow tones, conjoined with Andrea's mastery of his own God-given musical instrument, would be like chocolate dipped strawberries drizzled with kahlua and cream - rich, smooth, awakening all the senses and oh soooooooooo delightfully delicious!!"
"Move over you other queens, royalty is here! With my connections with the Palace: my brother was an apprentice farmer to the Queen and my uncle a clock winder at Buck House, I have real credentials - and others that will be hidden under layers of regal red chiffon, lace and silk! A gown I won that has been made to measure and has not as yet adorned this royal person, is rustling with anticipation in my lounge as it waits to mix with the 'right' people - the starburst of sequins and beads on the bodice are just busting to be busted, the two underskirts are floating by themselves in anticipation. My crown is winking and blinking at me already. There would be a HIVE of activity and brilliant buzzing as my entourage also adorned themselves with regal resplendence. Make way for the real deal all you 'pretenders'! A night with the Queens of the Desert would be unforgetable, unequalled and fantasmaglorious - the royal "We" is waiting!"
"'Tis I, I'm named Di, and on curds I rely and I thrive on a great chunk of cheese, whether edam or brie, gruyere or colby, Di'd like to win tickets - yes please!"
