I'm Big Ben, and I'm coming!

Remember that extremely cool promo video for Chinese TV earlier this year? I'll hopefully be filming something similar along those lines in a month or so. I need to assemble all these things into a compilation of video clips just about me - there's more than enough of the things out there...

I keep meaning to watch rugby and get more than a sort of vague understanding of the rules. I mean, I know how it works, broadly speaking, but since most people who occasionally watch the game only have that kind of basic knowledge of it, I can't help thinking it would impress people with my sportiness if I actually knew what offside is...

Flight of Dragons

Soar in the purple light, in the sky, or in my mind... I've had the seminal 1980s cartoon movie on video for years, but haven't watched it for ages. I put that right today, and it's still a classic! Go out and find a copy, everyone, and watch it too. I insist!

Mustn't grumble

I get annoyed by the way that I always have just barely enough money these days - whatever my income at any given moment, there's always some expense that matches it exactly with nothing to spare. But I can't really feel like I'm desperately impoverished, because then I remember that I've had trips to America and China this year that have been paid for by memorising a few numbers, which you'd have to say makes me a lucky kind of person.

I could still do with winning the lottery, though.

I've been working for the last two weeks straight without even a weekend off, but tomorrow's my last day at it, so then I get to spend three days in bed. And the middle one of them is my birthday, too!
