CELEBRITY AND GLOONING

Might as well milk this for all it's worth, tomorrow or the next day it will be forgotten and I'll slink back to comfortable and safe obscurity.

Here are photos of the G2 cover and of the article inside, for the benefit of those who didn't rush out to get the paper Guardian today (shame on you!) and those who are too far away from metropolitan centres to obtain it.

Today I spent all day, ALL DAY, gloating. No, what's a better word for what I mean?... glooning?...over the effects of this sudden media exposure. I checked facebook about 100 times, logged into the online version of my article about 100 times, read the comments below it maybe three times, then after I bought the printed newspaper spent about an hour in the cafe re-reading my article and glooning. Now, suppose this mini-version of actual celebrity was a daily thing in my life, would I become a total and absolute and irreparable GLOON?? This is too horrible to even contemplate so I'll stop right here. In my next post I'll tell you exactly how this media thing came about.

Bruce, you're a good friend. I wish that you and SWMBO and me could meet in real life, I'm sure we'd get on. Any trips to this side of the pond in your plans for 2019?
