I mention this because on hot September days, when there is a fantastic game of cricket to be watched and glasses of Pimms to be supped from, the last thing I feel like doing is coming in to work to enter the name of the Senior Vice President of the Daimler Chrysler Corporation into our company database.
The second to last thing I feel like doing is sending out letters to people that I don't know and who don't know me and asking if I could meet them and then updating an internet based diary whilst trying to avoid the gaze of my boss. I'd much rather be having a swim or trying to master the piano solo from Coldplay's Clocks.
So in reply to Spanish Sarah's comment (below somewhere), although I mentioned that I would endeavour to update this diary on a daily basis, that wasn't supposed to be taken literally. Well the bit about TRYING TO was.
The eagle eyed may have noticed that I have changed the name of one of my postings, and removed the phrase Belsize Park from it, since I didn't want to offend the liberal cognoscenti who live around here. See, in order to get ahead in my neighbourhood you have to constantly criticise George Bush whilst reading the Guardian, eating your muesli and scolding your daughter Cressida. Which reminds me, I must stop writing stupid things on this weblog since when the celebrities (or their agents) receive my letter and possibly have a quick glance at this site, they will no doubt be put off agreeing to meet me when reading the rambling observations of this nobody.
Note to self, stop writing nonsense.
Today I have mostly been sending my letters to Eastenders actors Shane Ritchie, Barbara Windsor, Jessie Wallace and Wendy Richards, to football referee Graham Poll to golfer Colin Montgomery, tennis player Tim Henman, Governor of the Bank of England Mervyn King, comedian David Walliams and theatrical producer Bill Kenwright.
Oh and just to remind, I will hopefully be plugging this project on X-FM (not sure what frequency)tonight between 1.00AM and 3.00AM, James permitting.
