Winning, wandering, writing...

A Google Alert popped up in the inbox to let me know that someone had posted a blog post about me. Only they hadn't. The blog subject was my namesake over at Hull City, who'd cracked in a goal today in a 2-0 play off win over Watford to move the Tigers well-within reach of a Wembley appearance. Well done DW. A winning day for the city - as well as the aforementioned, Hull FC and Hull KR both advanced in the Challenge Cup. With the taste of victory in the air and the sun shining we wandered around town aimlessly, pausing for drinks outside a dockside tavern.

Somewhat miraculously, I've written two short film scripts this weekend. A distraction, if nothing else, from writing what I should have been writing, which was adding the finishing touches to an outline for a new play. Despite the lack of words on paper/hard drive the new play is bubbling away and is jostling for position in my addled brain, preparing to burst out of there.

Reading: Yukio Mishima - Confessions of a Mask. Listening: Mystery Jets - Twenty One; The Courteeners - St Jude; Does It Offend You, Yeah? - You Have No Idea What You're Getting Yourself Into; Tokyo Police Club - A Lesson In Crime.

If they get promotion I would play on the possibilities of mistaken identity 100% if I were you. Accept the call to go on that Sky Sports football programme on Saturday morning. Appear with Sue Barker on 'A Question of Sport'. But especially make sure not to turn down the request to have a statue of you outside the KC stadium. (It might add to the potential for mistaken identity to start calling yourself 'Davo' for when the phone rings.)

It might be interesting to see a play by Dean Windass...

It would be more interesting to see me turn out at the KC one Saturday afternoon, believe me!
