Speaking of transport I nearly got run over, walking through Donny market place this morning, by a Peruvian pan pipe player (that's a sentence you don't get to say every day). He leaned out of his van and screamed in Spanish, '¿Por qué no miras por dónde va usted mucho gordo bastardo pelo. ¿No ves que estoy conduciendo? Follar peatones!' which I think translates as 'I must say I like your long hair and trim waistline. I'm sorry for nearly running you over in what is obviously a pedestrian area.'
I finally bought some shorts. Got them in fat b*****d size. They didn't fit. I've exchanged them for extra fat b*****d size so here's hoping. In fact I'll try them now.
Well I'm obviously an extra fat b*****d waist but as for these being 3/4 length obviously not on someone my height. Try again tomorrow.
So the final Do It Unplugged session this morning with Midlands band Phoenix Salvation. 15 bands have played and the quality has been outstanding, today being no exception. Voting for your favourite will start next week, watch this space.
(In case you were wondering of course TMS is on and a nice little last wicket flurry from Swann and Broad is in progress).
It's a weekend and as per a hectic one is planned. Tonight is The Leopard trip to Tramlines. Leadmill guest list to see Famous Villains and King Charles, and a few in-between too.
Tomorrow will see me again attempting the shorts buying thing and then back to Sheffield for more Tramlines shenanigans with The Talks and Public Service Broadcasting on the to do list.
Sunday is back to work.
And then it's Monday with 15 year old phenomenon John Lennon McCullagh joining me live on the show.
