Love Hurts

Stephen Wolfram

Hola. Hope you are well.

For the last few Mondays I’ve mentioned what appear to be made up nonsense days, such as, ‘Happy Monday’ (the happiest day of the year), ‘Blue Monday’ (the most depressing day of the year), ‘Sickie Monday’ (the day most people were likely to call in sick). Well today is another such day, ‘Valentines Day’ (the day men buy cheap tat, in an attempt to show their other-half they love them). Surprisingly, I’m not a massive fan of valentines day but that might be because I’m a man, but I also suspect women don’t really like Valentines day either, they just like to see us men squirm. If you are a woman reading this feel free to confirm or deny this.

From metaphorical pain suffered by men to actual pain suffered by me. For a couple of days last week I was in great discomfort in my chest area. I’m not sure what caused it, but my self diagnosis narrowed it down to trapped wind or I must have put out a muscle. The only problem with the last prognosis is that I’d like to say it must have come after I’d been lifting heavy weights at the gym but in reality the pain came after I’d been rigorously scrubbing the shelf of the grill. If this was the cause of the pain, it would have to be the lamest injury a man has suffered in the history of the planet. Having said that, it did bloody hurt.

On last week’s blog post I mentioned  my CRB woes, well today I can officially announce to the world, that I’m not a perv, as both my CRBs have cleared. I can’t help thinking the ‘fun’ starts here, or as Morrissey put it, ‘I was looking for a job, then I found a job. And heaven knows I’m miserable now’. Or as ‘Her With One Permanent Job’ put it, “Now you don’t have an excuse not to get a job”. I must admit that had crossed my mind.

Onto other stuff. I often get given CDs, because not only am I a mover and shaker in the world of comedy, I’m also an influential figure in the music industry. Anyway, I was flicking through my CDs and noticed I had 2 copies of Plan B’s album, ‘The Defamation of Strickland Banks’ and so as a treat, I thought I would give it away to a reader of this blog. So if you’d like the album, all you have to do is be the first person to write a comment via the comments button saying you would like the CD. Once you’ve done that, you can email me, with your postal address and I will send it out to you. I wonder if in some parallel world Plan B is giving away a copy of ‘How To Dump Your Girlfriend’ via his blog.

And Finally… I was flicking through the Saturday Guardian magazine and saw an article about Stephen Wolfram, (See Pic at top of this blog post), I didn’t read the article because it was all techy stuff. But the pic of him did make me think he looks  like one of  David Walliams’ comedy characters. Feel free to make up your own minds.

Til next week, stay safe!
