Proof...

Well, as you can see, the proof of the book of the play finally came. And the shock news is that it's like a proper book and everything! And that's my tiny hand, my laptop and my Robot Attack mug in the picture too. So now you know just that little bit more about me. Which must be marvellous for you. Anyway, watch this space for details of how to purchase a copy of Sully, a play that, I admit, has limited appeal beyond the city of Hull, a few hardcore rugby towns and what was the Welsh village of Splott before it was eaten by Cardiff. There's a few minor changes to be made but, well, I'm very excited to be finally holding this thing in my hand.

So, Gordon Brown, then. He has all the personality and looks of a slug, doesn't he? But my, how we laughed when he said: "I'm more interested in the future of the Arctic circle than the future of the Arctic Monkeys." Doesn't he have any thoughts on the Monkeys' difficult second album? For a band so intent on writing lyrical social realism one wonders how on earth they'll keep it up now they're big shot celebs so far detached from the grubby back streets of Sheffield. Surely what follows debut Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not needs to be of major interest to a self-confessed 'fan'? But there's Brown, busying himself with his plans for wrecking the environment. We can't trust him, I tells you.

You know Sully is the village just outside Cardiff where my parents live. However, they have no use for culture of any kind, so I would take the tour there.

Looking fab, me old china. I'm almost burtsing wi pride, now that I can say "my mate, the published playwright AND author". Put me down for a couple of copies, I say. And haven't you got lovely hands?

I walked down the garden this morning and kept stepping on Gordon Brown.

PS did my comment on builders not get approved or did I forget to send it. You could of course lie here now i have confessed to memory loss.

That one hand is lovely. But, sadly, the other is a mere mechanised claw. I loved you comment re the builders Baz. See my apology on the October 3 entry!
