Sheryl Lee Interview – Part 2

leave a comment »

I wasn’t feeling in the interview mood after the Golf, so I organised a room for Sheryl at a local hotel.

I’ve told her I’ll do it today.

She said that would be fine.

So, I’ve organised a table for two at the exclusive restaurant “La Blaireau Con”, which means The Stupid Badger in French.  It is also one of a growing number of restaurants in Europe to have it’s own attached theme park.  Infact The Stupid Badger actually boasts the 4th largest roller-coaster in the Northern Hemisphere, and for my money it also does a decent Swordfish.

So Laura, you really were fantastic in Twin Peaks.

My name’s not Laura, that was my characters name.

Oh, I’m sorry

It’s ok, lots of people make that mistake.

Right, it was Maddie wasn’t it.

No, again, that was the other character in Twin Peaks.

You played two characters in the one show?

Yes, I thought you were a fan.

I am, it’s just that Laura died in episode 1.

Right… What’s your point

I don’t know.

Ok then

Right.  So, Laura, I mean Maddie, I mean, what is your name?

Sheryl Lee.

Mmm.  I prefer Laura.

Well that’s not my name.

Right, well, Sheryl, how do you react to criticism that you haven’t had a decent acting role since Aaahh! Real Monsters, in 1994.

I think I’ve done a lot strong work, I find that very insulting.

Whatever.  Anyway, You’d have to agree that Nice Guy Eddie by Sleeper is the best brit pop song of the 1990’s?

What’s brit pop?

At this point I terminated the interview.  Sheryl was good in Twin Peaks, but anyone how doesn’t know what Brit Pop is, deserves only my disdain.  I wish I had interviewed Audrey Horne instead.

Mini Golf – 40 Euros

Dinner – 80 Euros

Room at the hotel – 260 Euros

10 Beers at the Fable Mouse Fat Cat inn – 80 Euros

4 shots on the roller-coaster – 30 Euros

Interview with Sheryl Lee – Far from priceless

Thanks Sheryl, thanks for nothing.

Roller-coaster, of love

No comments really.  Just call this an experiment to see how many people read this based on the headline.

Interview with Sheryl Lee (aka Laura Palmer) – Part 1

leave a comment »

I know who killed me... In Twin Peaks I mean

I caught up with the Twin Peaks star at the Hungry Lumberjack Fine La Tasca Experience in Oslo, Norway.  “Big Lumbo Jacks” as it’s known locally, boasts the 6th largest mini golf course in Europe, and for my money it’s the best restaurant slash mini golf course in the world.

Sheryl said she was going to be running around 20 minutes late, so I got myself a couple of bottles of becks and set about practicing my swing.  You can look a little bit mental practicing putts with no balls at the entrance to a restaurant, but my mantra has always been that if you fail to prepare, then you prepare to fail.

Sheryl eventually rolled in a full 40 minutes late. She spun me a story about traffic problems, but I think she’d been hitting it too hard the previous night.  Sheryl went to the club house to pick a putter.  A rookie move in my opinion.  All ‘True’ golfers out there know that you need to bring your own clubs to these occasions.  If you’re hitting that putter for the first time, you might as well be putting with a baseball bat.

So Sheryl, thanks for joining me today

It’s always a pleasure Alex.

Quite.  Quite.  Well, shall we tee off?


Sheryl hit her first shot to perfection.  Getting round in a birdie two.

As I was teeing up, a young couple behind me wandered up.  They were ignoring club etiquette, and standing about 2 yards from me.  I tried to ignore their blatant rudeness and focussed on my putt, but just as I pulled the club back, I saw the flash of a camera.  The young couple had spotted Sheryl Lee and taken a photo of her.

Well, I don’t know about all of you, but I wasn’t prepared to play golf under such dire conditions.  I threw my club back in my bag and turned to stare at the two idiots:

One of the idiots: What’s wrong

Me: You are

One of the idiots: What do you mean, we …

Me: Don’t give me any of your pish.  Are you two members of this course?  Mmm?  Or have you just wandered up and thought, ooo, Golf, we like golf, let’s play some golf?

One of the idiots: Well, we’re on a day out, we just thought?

Me: No. That’s your problem. You didn’t think.  And now you’ve ruined the day for everyone. Well done.

At this point I terminated our game of golf.  Mini golf with a Twin Peaks legend can be fun.  But not with idiots around.

Now, on to dinner.

Gattaca,mmm, I love it

Djokovic couldn’t beat him mum on Clay, never mind Nadal.

I’d take her for a steak dinner. Anytime.

I'll go for dinner, but only if it's in Falkirk
