Name rings a bell. Yes, I have it now...the ugly mug from the tv!
I'll not bring my camera along then, the lense might crack.

What tosh!
I watched the tv reading. I particularly liked the scene and her outfit worn, striking. Where i wonder did the lady buy her turtle neck jumper from?

Golly I'm sorry. I realize it was in fact her actual neck. The crepy effect must have been due to the lighting. Apologies.

A turkey neck is a common saying for someone whose neck resembles that of a turkey, but what that has to do with all this I don't know. I only know this because I have one myself, though I'm quite a bit older than the lady in question. Unfortunately it only gets worse. I have a treble rings, though I shan't divulge my age.

I saw her, and I really don't know what all the fuss is about. Her appearance was perfectly ordinary, quite unremarkable.
