With Alliance Internet warriors now attacking NI21 on Slugger O’Toole, I am indebted to “Granni Trixie” , the Boedica of Alliance warrior tribe for the information that NI21s launch was organised by a model agency headed by a model called Cathy Martin. Not so much the knives coming out as the claws coming out. Miaoooow.
In fairness, I have never heard of Cathy Martin or her model agency. Strictly in the interests of research I must google Cathy Martin and her models. In great detail. I do not want to appear ungallant but I was at the launch of NI21 and while there was certainly some nice looking women around, none actually struck me as being “models”.
While Granni wonders on Slugger whether the models will do the “legwork” (is that some kinda Freudian thing?), I was reminded of the first Alliance person I ever saw….outside St Aidans School on Assembly Election Day in June 1973. She was 20ish…..and simply stunning. Stunning. The most beautiful girl I have ever seen.
I wonder if forty years on ….I wonder if she remembers me fondly….boyish good looks and a natural easy going charm. And my chat up line “if all Alliance people looked like you, I would vote for them”.
Wonder what she is doing now? Contributing to Slugger O’Toole? Surely not.
