Isn't it just the way that the week you are left mulling over some of the more pitiful offerings you've ever mustered and bemoaning the fact your blog has gone stale, someone pops up selecting you as a pick of the week? Well, it's nice to be appreciated*, but at the same time..? Pick of the week? For writing about Sprite Cans?
What of my London Walk? Or my winter's stroll across Hampstead Heath? Or the time I confessed to planting Class A substances on an ex-girlfriend's property? Or my sozzled visit to the Great British Bear Festival? Nope. It's my account of Sprite cans that clearly captured the people's attention. Great.
So, I'd been contemplating turning this here page purely into a Consumer Affairs site as that seemed the way forward, exposing the corrupt money men putting out shonky goods all in the name of a quick buck etcetera. Fear not though; I do seem to have been offered a pardon of sorts. Shane, who has clearly also been having similar sentiments regarding the downward spiral of My Thoughts Exactly, has made the proposal that there is a chance of redemption if I agree to offer up my services to investigate some of those many pressing questions out there that are troubling YOU, the readership. I think he was meaning eating beetroot and seeing if your wee really goes pink, that sort of thing. But you never know.
I can see this working. The concept I mean, not so much the beetroot, but that too. I'd be a bit like a modern day Johnny Ball, with a splash of Fred Dinenage and a smattering of Frank Spencer.
So, Readership. Set me a task.
* in all seriousness, cheers Tim!
