This idea has legs. Or at least feet.

So, a couple of days ago, Laura at the office had a hole in her shoe and got wet feet. She asked if anyone could lend her a pair of socks. Seeing as I live practically next door, I generously brought her one of my finest pairs (no holes at all) from home. And to thank me, she custom-made a new pair of socks for me...

I didn't know it was possible to do this! I'm still not entirely sure why anyone would want to do this, but that's not the point. It seems I could cheaply manufacture Official Ben Pridmore Socks! I could sell them by the million! There are parts of the world where my huge fanbase would snap them up! I need to investigate the sock distribution facilities of China, quick! My TV appearance four years ago no doubt still has the country desperate for merchandise, and I can fill that demand with socks!

China in your hand

I've got my brother here with me at the moment, back from China seven years after his last holiday over here. Which is great, although the reason for him evacuating the country obviously isn't something to celebrate. But even so, it's nice to have a housemate for a change...
