Holy crap, cow and mackerel!! That’s crazy! So when are you going to London? I’m looking forward to hearing about YOUR DATE WITH IDRIS ELBA!
I’m floored…I’d laugh harder but I would wake my family. Absolutely hilarious and just great to listen to. This just made my day.
So, when are you moving to London again?
Great day in the morning! That was hilarious! *wiping tears* OH. MY. GAH!
*standing ovation* You’re right, every V-Day pales in comparison to that one. Hell, watching that video made my day a lil’ better. *smh*
And the editing?! Superb! I especially enjoyed the music and the dreamy look on your face.
*still laughing* I swear, this was awesome! Random celebs should just call you so we can get the videos. Awesome job, lady!
AHAHAHAHAAHHA, tooooo funny… Idris don’t know what he got himself into.. This VLog is a winner..
BABIES!!! I want cute, tall babies from this. Maybe I’m getting slightly ahead of myself…
I all but fell out when Barry White came on. This… this… I can’t…
*bows down to your comedic genius*
Okay, but did you remember to ask him if he knew John Cusack?!
*thunderous applause* Well played, girl, well played. I look forward to The Further Adventures of Stalking Idris Elba. Side note: the majority of my wardrobe is best suited for a summer wedding – just saying.
Oh. My. Goodness. That was brilliant – The Eccentric English Boyfriend kept asking me what I was squeaking about! (Yes, I squeak when I laugh).
Also, that’s the first time I’ve watched one of your vlogs – you are gorgeous!
oooh, I’m with Nicole- summer wedding! That way I can pawn, err, leave the kids with their dad. Plus I want to wear something low cut
That was JUST fabulous…. My lord. You are seriously lucky lady…. Loved the Barry White business….. I giggled.
So, when are you moving into Idris’s in London? x
Literally laughing & crying tears over here! Its the way you tell it girl – too funny!
OMG Bangs, I’m in actual TEARS from laughter right now lol. So are you gonna make Idris swoon with your fabulousness? How could he not?! Send me an invite to the wedding!
You’ve just made me laugh out loud.. too funny young lady and well done you. Make sure you call him now, dont be getting all shy now. And BTW you’re v pretty, I’m sure Mr Elba will think so too. Enjoy lady x
I am so gone over here! Yeah I didn’t have a VDay compared to that one! Congrats hun!
Bangs, you are crazy!!! This is fucking amazing. I would have jizzed my pants upon hearing him say my name…but it sounds like you handled it well.I could not stop laughing!!!! Good Post!!!
Very jealous … and you BETTER call him girl!
One minute in and I was LMAO! Now as for this call next week, if you don’t call I’ll fly down to London personally to give you a good smack. I’m already planning what I will wear to this wedding!
Yo….FALL DOWN!!! That my friend is a lot..I would have said I’m in London now actually and been on the next train down. So now with your words of wisdom I’m going to speak a hot steamy weekend away with Vin Diesel into being. I would have settled for a phone call, but after our Bangs and a Bun debate about settling….I think a steamy weekend is not to much to ask for. no?

HELEN – LOL at ‘Cinder-Elba’ That’s a good ‘un!
MIZZWORTHY – Woo hoo!
Your new style of editing is spectacular. You go girl.
This just made me laugh so loudly I think I woke Baby Oliver! Muireann this is amazing and knew this would happen once he heard your voice and witty banter and now to have seen you in the flesh (is that true-did he watch this!)-He is so taking you out on a date. You go girl-also I love the way you edited your video-anytime you wanna come work with me, let me know! And your presence on camera-you are a natural. A star is born. That’s you girl!
MEREDITH – Cheers me dears!
VICKI P – Aww, thanks gorgeous! Someone at the blog who ran the competition tweeted yesterday that Idris has seen it. I’m mortified at the very thought! And I thought you might appreciate my new found editing skills! Ha! Still got a long way to go with these video blogs, but I think I’m kinda getting the hang of it. Thanks for the support at always my lovely. x
LMAO!!! You are TOO much! Had to explain your obsession with Idris cos my boyf was shooting me “WTF” looks as I guffawed over my keyboard!! See? You didn’t even need me to beg my friend to ‘sort you out’, you did it all yourself! LOOOOOOOL
if Idris called me I would have lost all my cool and just babbled like an idiot. he would have hung up on me. Did you use the term going ham at least once on the phone with him? *sits and waits*
Uh, what? HEYLO! Loved it! I’m with Jaded…summer wedding.
WHOA! Looks like u scored yourself a tentative date! LOL… I think playin it super cool like that was the way to go. I met Beyonce once & I was actin like “whatever, I know u sing & stuff, what ELSE is new??” She ate it up! Ha Ha Ha #WATCHOUTJAYZ!
Let me explain how i am commenting on this. On one side, I have your video, on the other, I have notepad opened and I having to pause to catch my breath and write my thoughts as I go along.
hahahhahahaha, ‘pretty average really, IDRIS ELBA CALLED ME’. Totally imagining you with your face full of makeup, with having tidied the house a little (I bet your wiped the inside of your microwave, and put some blue stuff down the loo too).
Haha for the ‘going to the gym thing’. I would have been the same pretending I have a social live and meeting real friends later on during the day, as opposed to strangers on the internet friends
your eyebrows look the bomb!!!
is that THE moschino dress (spelling?) you’re wearing?
5 stars for correcting him on your name.
f*cking hell >> 4.10!!! I am on the edge of my seat. I now understand the flow of tweets today, and the notting hill talk, the mention of the ‘assistant’. It all becomes clear now.
loved loved loved that video! despite lashes of smugness verging on annoyingly jealous I am (even if I dont even know the bloke lol) I absolutely loved it. xxxx
Precision on my last comment: I did not know show, and therefore did not know Idris before I met you. But this is normal, as I tend to watch more youtube & twitter TV rather than normal TV.
Oh my goodness, only just saw this and you have cracked me up! Glad the call was such a success…and you have NO excuses for not heading back to London town now do you??!! x
Great improvisation w/ the Barry White tune! Feels so good..
i can not with you.
..he is one fine ol’ man though.
Finally got to watch it! I love it! So have you called him? Have you met up for drinks yet or got your photograph with him?
[...] had an iota of agitation about her performance she kept it well hidden. She retold the story of her Valentine’s Day date with some bloke called Idris Elba. Apparently he’s in some American programme, The Wire? [...]
LOOOOOOOOOOOL!!!! This gave me jokes!!!! lol lol
