the long and rocky road to fame

"Will I make you really gorgeous?"
The words were those of Medbh Gillard the artist currently designing a cover for Not The Theme Tune To Casino Royale, the new song from James Bong And The Villains.
"Just do me as I am Medbh," sez I.
"So not gorgeous then," sez she with the air of a woman rather enjoying herself.
Truly bold readers, I suffer for my art.
Later the same day I had lunch in the Chat And Chew with the Mammy.
The Mammy was mighty curious about the forthcoming CD cover artwork.
"What way is she drawing you?" quoth the Lildebeest.
"Like I am," explaineth me.
"Ah God," quoth the Lilt.
"What's wrong?" wondereth me.
"I'd prefer if she made you good looking, gave you a few muscles and all that, you know, for the public image," quoth she.
Words failed me.

Good grief, I had always pictured Medbh as a chap, but clearly it's a woman's name. Who knew?
Is it pronounced 'Mev'? Or how?
Oh and I'm sure you scrub up very nicely James.

Hi Schnee.
Yes Medbh is one of our Irish forms of Maeve. Although some scholars would insist it's an older name and a different name to the English language version which sounds exactly the same as it. Great warrior women of Ireland have had this name. The tradition continues!
