VIDAL Sassoon, the celebrity hairdresser who has died, acknowledged the style of Glasgow women by opening one of his salons in Princes Square in the city.
It reminds us of when award-winning Glasgow hairdresser Rita Rusk employed Sharleen Spiteri, now singer with multi-million album selling band Texas, as a stylist, and Sharleen came to her to say that she was resigning in order to pursue a career in music. Rita admits she dismissed such a fanciful claim and accused her of covering up the fact that she was moving to Vidal Sassoon.
PRINCE Charles read the weather forecast yesterday on a trip to the BBC's Glasgow offices. Given the weather outside, a number of readers wondered why he didn't adopt his mum's anthem and declare: "Long to rain over us."
A READER in a Glasgow office had to pass on the observation from his boss who felt he was getting the blame for everything by head office. Or as he memorably put it: "I'm no one's escaped goat!"
FRIENDS, of course, are not always the most supportive of people. A reader in a Glasgow nightclub heard a young woman moan to her pal: "I wish someone would like me for my brain."
"What about a zombie then?" replied her less-than-caring companion.
MISTRANSLATIONS continued. Donald McLarty passes on: "A former colleague used to tell of his university class learning French. Each student was given a famous piece of poetry or prose to translate and their efforts were then distributed for another student to translate back into English. Thus Antony's eulogy to the corpse of Julius Ceasar which began life as 'O pardon me thou bleeding piece of earth' became 'Scuse me you bloody sod.'"
THE young chap in a Glasgow pub the other night was telling his pals that he had split up with his girlfriend because she was psychic.
When they asked for a further explanation, he told them: "She was seeing people behind my back."
THE missing ballot papers now discovered in Glasgow's Langside ward remind a reader of the chap who went up to a Labour-supporting pal and said: "I know you support Labour, and you know I support the SNP, so why don't we save time and agree not to vote today as our vote would just cancel each other out." His pal readily agreed.
After his pal left, the SNP-supporter was heard to mutter: "Excellent, that's the third Labour supporter so far who's agreed."
AS we've mentioned before, not every fan of Scottish football is sympathetic to the plight of Rangers FC. A reader told us yesterday: "A potential silver lining for Rangers fans – after Queen's Park lost their second division play-off first leg, Rangers could still be guaranteed two trips to Hampden next season."
