I'm repeating my welcome message for the beginning of September in case new readers are joining me at the Hip (so to speak). Please bear with me if you've already read this.
Hello (or as Blanche might say, 'get on your bike') and thanks for stopping by
Welcome to 'Blanche's Polish hip', a Coronation Street blog named in honour of Blanche Hunt's replacement hip surgery, an operation which was done in Poland for, um, financial reasons and also to make as many people as possible feel guilty (I hope you're listening, Deirdre) . Blanche is the acerbic beacon for this tongue-in-cheek commentary on the Coronation Street episodes watched by faithful Canadian fans every weekday. Like many Corrie fans, I have been watching the show from 'Corrie Central' (i.e. my living room in Montreal) for a long, long time and enjoy discussing characters and stories - usually from a humorous perspective. My fictitious editor frequently adds his own cryptic comments to blog entries (in parentheses and in italics and attributed to 'ed').
Blog posts are generally updated three or four times a week following the airing of weekday episodes on CBC TV so please be aware of the potential for spoilers -- especially if you're a Sunday omnibus edition viewer.
I hope you enjoy visiting (or as Blanche might say, 'stop reading this mindless twittering and put the kettle on')
