What I did in my summer holidays

Hola. Hope you are well.

Anyone who’s ever read this blog will know it’s not a vehicle for me to boast about my achievements. This isn’t a conscious decision, it’s more to do with not having achievements to boast about.

However, the figures are in for August and both this blog and my football blog, ‘The View from the Trevor’ recorded their best figures ever. It definitely helped that I was off work all through August, allowing me to write more posts and promote/pester people on Twitter.

In addition to this, the podcast (prongcast) I’m involved in 3Prong Attack has also gone from strength to strength with it becoming more popular in Holland and the USA than in England. We’ve also gained a following in Athens, although nowhere else in Greece.

Anyway, I’m back at work now, after 6 weeks off (no one ever seems sympathetic when I mention this) so I’m sure I won’t be repeating these figures anytime soon. In the meantime, thanks to all those that have read or listened to me in my various projects, it is appreciated.

Til next time, stay safe!

Taking your broom to Clapham

Hola. Hope you are well.

So Boris Johnson wants to become a MP (he probably would like to be Prime Minister).

As he looks to the future, I thought it might be nice to look back on his role as Mayor of London and the job he’s done. A job he’s held since 2008.

Despite living in London for almost 4 years I couldn’t think of his main achievements. I do remember that after the London riots he did take his broom to Clapham to help with the clean up. When I say help, he turned up, got chastised by the public and then left again but for the purpose of this blog let’s just stick with help.

I’m hoping you can help me by answering the question, What has Boris Johnson done for London? You can contact me via the comments button or on twitter @anunknowncomic

Opening a can of beans

Hola. Hope you are well.

I was interested to see that Chris Martin (Coldplay) is back eating meat after splitting from his wife, Gwyneth Paltrow a strict vegetarian. The implication being that his decision to not eat meat during his marriage was a decision influenced by his wife. With this in mind, what would be the first thing you’d give up/take up, if you were to split with your current partner? Let me know via the comments button, or on twitter @anunknowncomic

In other showbiz wedding news, Cheryl Cole recently got married to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini. Apparently her husband spent £300 000 on the engagement and wedding ring. I’m sure no one reading this has that kind of money to spend on a wedding ring but I am interested to know how much you’ve spent on a wedding ring. Maybe you’ve been married a few times and so collectively you’ve spent a fair whack on wedding rings . Alternatively, I’d like to hear from people who’ve spent very little on a wedding, the cheaper the better and how was it received?

And finally…. in matters closer to home, my other half, unbeknown to me decided to take our only tin opener to work, meaning I had to improvise when for lunch I needed to open a tin of beans. For those interested, I used a hammer and a knife and made holes all round the can until I was able to remove the lid. Let me know when you’ve used an item for something other than what it was designed for.

Tulisa is not a spy

Hola. Hope you are well.

I’m not a lawyer, nor am I a journalist so perhaps that’s why I didn’t understand why the investigative journalist, the Fake Sheikh, real name Mazhir Mahmood was trying to set up Tulisa into aiding the supply of drugs.

It’s not as if Tulisa is an MP or a spy. She’s a pop star. Someone in the music industry knowing someone who can get hold of drugs is not a story, an MP with a close association with drugs would at least be in the national interest (and maybe explain some policies).

If the Fake Sheikh, who had worked for the News of the World for 20 years, really wanted to investigate something, could he not have looked closer to home? Was there anything going on in that organisation he could have investigated over the years??

Yorkshire, yorkshire

Hola. Hope you are well.

With the first 2 stages of this year’s Tour de France taking place in Yorkshire and being such a big success, I think more events should take place in Yorkshire.

Perhaps the Superbowl or Running with the Bulls could move to Yorkshire. They shouldn’t limit themselves to sporting events, maybe they could host the Columbian elections.

Feel free to let me know what you think should be held in Yorkshire. You can contact me via the comments button or on twitter @anunknowncomic

Who wants to change the world?

Hola. Hope you are well.

On leaving Newsnight, Jeremy Paxman effectively said, that trying to change the world is for thirteen year olds.

Is he right?

Are you older than a teenager and want to change the world?

If not change the world, as this may be overly ambitious, do you want to make a positive difference, whether that be to your family, the area you live, to the people you meet, or society in general?

Vuvuzela or social unrest?

Hola. Hope you are well.

The last World Cup was played out to the sound of vuvuzelas, this one  backed by the sound of protesters.

I’ve big respect that the protesters didn’t allow a little thing like the World Cup get in the way of highlighting the imbalance between the money spent on the tournament and the money spent on looking after the people of Brazil.

One way the organisers quite clearly saved money was by not employing a choreographer for Pitbull and J-Lo’s performance during the opening ceremony, which seemed to involve a lot of arm waving, some saucy dancing, followed by a lot more arm waving.

At least the Brazil government only have to concern themselves financially with one major tournament it’s not as if they’ll be hosting another major sporting event anytime soon.

Ps. Let me know if you’ve still got a vuvuzela and if so when last did you blow it? You can contact me via the comments button or on twitter @anunknowncomic
