Hola. Hope you are well.
After reading last week’s blog post, ‘Her With One Permanent Job’ said my blogs are becoming “more mental”. As I said to her, it’s not my blogs that are getting more mental it’s my life.
This can be illustrated at the start of last week, when my agency were ringing me up asking me if “I was available for work”, when I was at … work. You’ll be pleased to know these problems have been sorted and I am now at the school til mid July (unless something changes).
As a comedian (that’s what I am) the whole Jimmy Carr furore interested me. For starters, I don’t pay tax on my comedy earnings, not due to a tax avoidance scheme but because I don’t earn enough, so if Jimmy wants to avoid paying tax altogether he knows what he has to do.
David Cameron, described Jimmy Carr’s actions as being ‘morally wrong’ but refused to comment on Tory supporter Gary Barlow (OBE), who was reported to be part of a similar scheme along with 2 of his Take That colleagues, Mark Owen and Howard Donald. The most interesting thing about this for me is that the only member of Take That to not join this scheme is Jason Orange, whose brother is a financial adviser. As ‘HWOPJ’ said “How do you know this nonsense”? For some reason, I remember it from Gary Barlow’s book ‘My Take’. (this in my defence was before I realised he was such a wassock)
Over the weekend I met up with 2 of my uni friends. That’s right, I have friends and I went to university. Both these friends are female, also amongst the gathering was ‘HWOPJ’. When all three were on their own, whilst the men took care of the barbecue, their conversation turned to marriage. This has made me wonder, do all women want to get married? And if so, why? Is it because as girls they bought into the fairy tales they were read, or do women just like a tax break? Feel free to let me know via the comments button.
And Finally… Due to the technical glitch at Natwest, I’m still waiting for a money transfer from an African Prince, so I thought I could turn this slight set back into a positive. So if you want to make a bit of money, I have a proposal. For every pound you put into my account, I will double it when the Prince’s money hits my account. This is quite possibly, the best offer I’ve made on this blog, even better than when I was giving away CDs including Plan B’s. Feel free to contact me to discuss, sort codes et al.
Til next week, stay safe!
