I sort of halfway persuaded someone to come to the Derby Memory Championship on the ten-minute train journey home today, even though he knew nothing about it beforehand, just because he asked me where I got the Blue Peter badge. I hadn't thought of the benefits the thing has for spreading the word about memory, but I can see how it could be a help. I just need to get in the habit of replying "Yes, I got it for doing an amazing memory feat, such as you yourself could do with a little practice, so why not come along to my competition in a couple of months", all in one breath, before the person has a chance to escape.

Hey Ben, I know it's not related to this post but how do I go about getting a copy of your book?

You email me at my yahoo.co.uk address, which starts with zoom_zoom_ben (and hopefully that convoluted way of spelling it out is enough to escape the penis-enlargement-selling email-harvesting machines) and say something along the lines of "Can I have a copy of your book, please, Ben?" And then I send it to you.
