I didn't know you cared!

I wasn't expecting to get quite so many replies immediately after posting last night - with my only updating this thing once a week at best, I assumed people weren't checking it so regularly. Anyway, the feeling seems to be that I should talk about memory, but there's not much to talk about at the moment - we're in the usual winter quiet period between competitions, and as usual (as far as I know) there's no definite plans about what's going to happen this year. I'm still intending to run a "Cambridge" competition at some point, probably not in Cambridge again, but I can't really announce anything about it yet. As for whether I'll compete anywhere, that's another question - we'll have to see how I'm feeling.

I do have an interesting offer for a Spanish advertising campaign which I'm in danger of losing through sheer apathy and I should make an effort to do, since they're paying well over the odds, but I'll let you know more about that when the time's right.

I'm starting a new temp job tomorrow, Friday 13th (it's an Unlucky Year again) in Derby (most haunted city in England), which I'm confident will go well. I'll take my lucky ladder's foot with me. I'm determined to devote any time I spend working as an accountant from now on to actively pursuing some other career, whatever it is. That, I think, will help me psychologically, or at least keep me off the streets for a while. Although my brother's staying with me at the moment, so spare time is more at a premium, although he does cook dinner for me every night, so I really can't complain.

I also have a book to co-write with Alberto some time when I get a moment - I'm sure it'll be a roaring success.

Can we expect a sequel of you and your brother on YouTube anytime soon?

I would like to hear about curtain hooks. Can you confirm this will be a regular talking point in 2012 following its strange omission in 2011?
